It depends on where you live. If you're in the Atlantic region yes, 500GB. If you are in Ontario it's 120GB LOL. What a difference!

See the NB in the top right corner of the webpage?

I see NB listed in the top right corner of your browser. Yes, you live in Ontario but your product selection is not for your home market.

It detected and/or you selected NB though. Click the NB at the top right and select Ontario and you'll see a different lineup.

Just click on the province abbreviation, a selection menu will appear.

Well, if this isn't the biggest POS move Rogers has ever made.

We're getting ripped off for $48.99 18/.512 80GB Express here in Ontario and yet Rogers is giving the down east folks this for $51.99.

I can see another 100 thousand leaving Rogers after reading this thread............Is there any low down scheme Rogers hasn't thought of???

I think the question here is, why does extreme have a 500GB cap and extreme plus has 150GB?

Because atlantic canada has bell aliant ftth, with no caps. Competition means better packages for consumers.

Unless it's from a third party and you're out of luck.

Why is it that the largest province gets screwed over?

Did they make you upgrade your modem or anything? I currently have the PoS that is the SMC, and they're telling me I need a new one.

I upgraded today and they didn't ask me to trade in my SMC modem.

God damnit. I'm in Ontario on Extreme. I've had my internet speeds upgraded like 3 times in the past year but I don't care about faster speeds I just want higher caps. I'd trade half the speed for twice the caps if I could.

Hey, I'm in NB, I've got the Extreme Internet, But my monthly allowance is still 120GB and my upload is still barely 1mbps.
Should I call them and ask? or will change by itself?
Also, does the change happen instantly or do I need a modem upgrade?

This is strange, because I just called and they said that changes will take effect 1st of December.

Typical rookie mistake believing anything that comes out of the mouth of a Rogers CSR. Rogers Redboard says "beginning Nov 7" and the injected HTTP msg said "by Dec 1".

Problem is, Rogers can't deliver what they're selling now. Guys are ordering 150/10 and getting 70 down max. Why? Uninformed sources here claim "node congestion" What a laugh. All these nodes were supposed to be upgraded to support channel bonding.

Well, what did they "upgrade" these nodes with? Bubblegum and duct tape?

Apparently, these so called "upgraded" nodes can't support current speeds or usage. Rogers Express upload speeds have sank to an all time low in the past couple weeks. Docsis 2 is looking better every day.

So when a CSR tells you Dec 1 what they're really saying is they have no idea but please be sure to pay your bill on time.

They want your money, they just can't deliver the goods...apparently the only "upgrade" Rogers has made is to their cash flow.

But then, we already knew about Rogers business ethics......after all, they are getting fined to the tune of 10 million.

Dude...WTF are you talking about??

"70 down max" is likely due to bottleneck at customer's end NOT rogers. These nodes have 300mbps peak, many have posted evidence of this fact!

"Rogers Express upload speeds have sank to an all time low in the past couple weeks. Docsis 2 is looking better every day." Pure bull$hit if I've ever seen one!

You keep making these ridiculous post for no good reason other than the fact that YOU don't like what you are getting for your $$$.

I was able to get in contact with rogers on Facebook, and was able to upgrade to the new Extreme package.
Very helpful rep on Facebook.:)

Just because things are alright where you're at doesn't mean there's not thousands of us getting royally screwed over.

"70 down max" is likely due to bottleneck at customer's end" is just an assumption you're making with no credible evidence to support it for these guys area.

We're not friggin' stupid out here we know what's going on and what we're getting from Rogers.
