Re: [Extreme Plus] New Speeds Effective December 1st

said by elitefx:

Customers must be leaving Rogers by the thousands. Since when do they ever officially announce a speed increase a month ahead of schedule?

How much do you want to bet the TPIAs will offer new faster/cheaper packages that will make Rogers look like they're giving you nothing?

Actually, this announcement was a stupid move on Rogers part. They've just given the competition 30 days notice to double/triple their best deals on tiers and prices.

Rule #1: Never let the competition know your plans in advance......

Under CRTC rules, Rogers has to provide the same speeds to TPIA as they do with their own customers. The only upperhand they have is having the advertising out sooner.

Considering Rogers is increasing speeds for their own customers, they'll have to file a Tariff with the CRTC stating the new speeds for TPIA, which must match their own customers'. Usually, the new speeds come into play 1 month after Rogers increases their own customers'.

I'm on Extreme Plus with the 32Mbps download and 7Mbps upload speeds. I called Rogers to see if my upload speeds would be lowered to 4Mbps with the new 45Mbps download speed on Dec 1st. The CSR indicated to me that my speeds won't be changing to the new download/upload speeds. I will be keeping the current speeds as a 'grandfathered' package. If I want to take advantage of the new 45Mbps download speeds I would be then lowered to the 4Mbps upload speed.

Or not... Called tonight, and asked about the "HU" code, and was told it was available where I'm moving, and that I can get the boost from 4mbps to 7mbps if I asked for it, for free. Definitely not being grandfathered.
