I definitely agree their advertising can be annoying.

But, I'd love to know where you are that you have "slow" LTE.

I'm in London myself and consistently get 35mbps down and 20-25mbps up. I actually see 40+mbps more often than not to be honest. Are you in or near a deadzone?

I have noticed that pretty much the entire area behind Montcalm high school is horrible for any sort of a signal.

Given that Rogers TV is the official broadcaster of the OHL, no idea why you are surprised. Rogers advertising has a lock on the OHL.

I think you misread his sentiment. I detected annoyance, not surprise.

Same thing. Rogers is the OHL carrier. End of story.

LTE was fast when it was still being adopted in Toronto & the GTA. Now its extremely slow in Toronto and a little bit faster then 3G+ in the GTA.

I don't know where you are or what device you're using, but i constantly get over 50mbps in and around the GTA with my LTE device on Rogers.

That's not entirely true. In cities with Cogeco as the cable carrier, the local OHL team play on Cogego TV, and there's even one (I *think* Sault Ste Marie) play on Shaw TV. (but if you meant the OHL carrier in London, then ignore my post )

Tear up the pamphlet in little pieces, get your neighbours to do the same thing, and use it as confetti between periods!

Right you are. Cogeco is the broadcaster in Windsor. Eastlink is the broadcaster in Sudbury.

Cogeco sacked their entire Windsor on-air broadcast team this year. But if the team is in a Rogers community, Rogers is the OHL broadcaster.

Niagara, Peterborough, Sarnia, Windsor, Belleville and Kingston are Cogeco. Everyone else is Rogers.
Full list here. Some, but not all of the Sault St. Marie home games are on Shaw.

I dont see harassment as your topic implies. I see advertising which any company is allowed to do in an arena as long as it follows the guidelines set out.

Placed on the seat, then tossed onto the floor - wow that’s got to be effective advertising.
