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.

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 $$$.

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.
