[Extreme] rogers coming to Burlington?

Hi all
Burlington has typically been cogeco country for in cable internet but for the last couple weeks there has been a crew pulling cables along mainway near walkers line, which is a commercial street thats never had cable available at all.
There is a sign near where they are pulling the cable saying the name of the contractor "on behalf of rogers" with the rogers logo.

Anyone know if I should be excited?

Don't expect Rogers to provide service to any address that has Cogeco available.

Oh I wouldn't expect that. Cogeco is not available along this street. The residential street our business backs onto has it, but not the 100-150 or so businesses along this stretch of Mainway.
Cogeco wanted $10,000 to run cable 200meters from the corner where it ends, we said no.

I'd prefer to be on cable over VDSL (as our backup to our Fiber main connection), but it's never been an option.

Could be that the contractor didn't have any "Cogeco" magnetic signs handy.

I'd love to get Cogeco over Rogers.

There are different arms of Rogers...

Could be for Roger's business services, could be for wireless, or could be (but not likely) for CableTV/Residential services...

Talk to my ex, she'd dispute what you just said. From what I can see (hear) though, their phone service is terrible. Think about how bad some VoIP services can be, and multiply the badness by 50, that's what Cogeco Home Phone is like.
