No decision expected until next week at the earliest. Could be another 2 weeks after that, though.

75/2 is available for ISPs using the aggregate POI.

I think that's the first one to do so, though... and holy crap, unlimited? They're either going to get killed on capacity costs, or are really, really skimping on it (ie: would have big time congestion)....

they disconnect you if you go over 300gb because of their "fair use" policy

CIK has had top tier plans for quite some time and they haven't gotten killed on capacity costs, what makes you think they will in the future? From what I've seen congestion isn't a issue on CIK, I don't have CIK but I know people who do and I played around with it and its top notch as far as I could tell.

They could probably improve their transit and routing but apart from that its no different than TSI.

That would explain it but I haven't seen anyone get kicked off.

I meant to write they have the right to disconnect you, not likely but I knew people who got called by them once the got to 300 (~1 year ago)

Although a bump in the down speed will be nice, I'm way more interested in the upload speed. Anyone have insight as to what we might see on the Cable 28 package?

With the usual expedited decisions being 2-4 weeks after the final submission, its very possible the decision won't be ready before the Christmas break (they have 2 weeks don't they for Christmas and New Years?).

Which of course means early January...

If they've got 2 weeks, I expect the last day before the break will be Dec 21st, and back Jan 7th.

So yeah, if they push it to the 4 week window, that'll put it in the first week back.... So here's hoping for 2-3.5 weeks instead of 2-4!

If it's going to be that close, I get the feeling they might want to push it out before they go on break so it's off their plates in January.

Let's also keep in mind that CNOC might lose, in which case we will never get the speed match. It could also be a split decision where the match is only forced for aggregated POI, in which case TSI customers probably won't see it for at least a year.

Matching for Agg-POI is definite. The question for that is "what price?"

Right, I guess I was thinking along the lines that "match" meant obeying the rules regarding speed increases that must be free to TPIA customers if they were free to Rogers customers.

My "split decision" scenario meant aggregated gets the new speeds with no price increase, while non-aggregated gets nothing.

that upload would help SO MUCH for game streaming. Cut my download if you need to.

And if I recall correctly, it is only Express that gets the ridiculous price increase. I believe Extreme and Extreme Pro will be getting upgraded at current pricing for aggregated POI.

Of course capacity prices are still stupid, so there will be no unlimited on aggregated...

Nope. Only Ultimate didn't get a price increase in the proposed prices. Express got a bigger increase than the rest, though.

Express: +$6.75
Extreme: +$2.62
Extreme Plus: +$1.35
Ultimate: +$0

On the Rogers retail side, yes.

But it seems they filed the same wholesale price for it. Which seems very, very odd. I've checked the price for 150, and it was definitely filed as $22.69, but I wonder if I found the right price for 75.

Edit: Sure enough. It was set at $22.69 in the tariffs when it was still 50Mbps.

I was looking at the cable pricing for Ontario-C, and noticed that in the Cogeco areas, including my region of Chatham, they have the 20Mb, 30Mb, and 55Mb speeds. Why do they and not Teksavvy? I would like to have my 14Mb connection bumped to 20Mb, but it is not possible.

Anyone know the deadline to switch to aggregated?

I believe it was set at Nov 15, 2013 (give or take a few days). I know there were attempts to get that pushed back, but I don't know what the status on them is.

Apart from Rogers, everyone else was already using regional or metropolitan aggregation long before the CRTC decided that aggregated was the most logical choice.
