Re: Another Rogers Rate Increase

Do you really believe that this particular rate increase is going to push people over the edge?

Most people will grumble about it and then pay their bills.

The problem is where do you go (Internet aside)
Bell?
Shaw?

They can do what they want with impunity, simply because they have a quasi monopoly and if you don't like it, they tell you to pound sand.

I talk to people all the time, the same general hate on for Rogers is everywhere, they have the WORST public image of any public company yet don't care... like I said, where are you going to go?

No, I didn't. Honest... I ran out of gas. I... I had a flat tire. I didn't have enough money for cab fare. My tux didn't come back from the cleaners. An old friend came in from out of town. Someone stole my car. There was an earthquake.......

Switching to Tek Savvy DSL 6 MB speed.

Had around 6 MB speed a number of years back with Rogers and it was fine with me.

Rogers last year had increased the price but had the nerve to kept me (and others) at the 95 Gig limit and not allow the 120 Gig cap. You got to buy or rent the D3 modem from us to get the 120 cap (but we will charge you more anyways if you don't). I called and asked about this last year.

If I was to stay with Rogers with coming increase,

Cost would be $73.44 month without going over cap and using the old modem (Motorola SB5100) I purchased over 8 years ago and my Cap is still 95 Gig.

Overuse charge $1.50 a Gig to a maximum of $100 plus tax.

Going to Tek Savvy

Costs equals $39.54 month with a modem I purchased (speed touch 516) from them and a 300 Gig Cap.

Overuse charge $.50 a Gig to a maximum of $25 plus tax.

Unlimited usage between 2am and 8am not counted towards cap.

Overall I'll be paying $33.90 less a month for over 3 times more allowance.

Yes Rogers speed was great but what good is it if you can't go farther then the end of the laneway without running out of fuel and having to pay for more. (but you can do this faster)

But now with Tek Savvy, I can go down the street and even around the corner at times and still have some fuel to spare.

It took me so long to wake up.

Only when a court order requires it of them.

And teksavvy allows themselves to be stepped on to save a dollar instead of challenging anything, as the could and should.

*shrug*

They are only one step above videotron, who did nothing.

Still not the same as just giving it out to anyone who asks for it.
