Ah no change on upload speed for ultimate package? I got an email for my standard account which doubled upload from 1-2. I was hoping for 4Mbps up from ultimate.

Cogeco only runs one upstream channel on their nodes, at least for the moment anyway. Until they start bonding the upstream you're unlikely to see anything higher than 2.

I haven't received anything yet, but I'm hoping for Ultimate 30 to become 40 and 175GB to 225GB. I have a feeling it will be 200GB though.

Little bit of upload will help!... What will the new Standard 14 package be?

Doubt anything will change with that, it's a grandfathered plan.

Apparently no one checks existing threads before creating a new one, holy.

FYI, the LAST time that Cogeco changed their rate plans, they neglected to state ANYWHERE ON THEIR WEBSITE what the upstream speed is for ANY of their residential packages.

That was in October 2011, and they STILL have not repaired their website of that omission.

I for one have notified various phone agents of theirs about this fault on at least 3 different occasions.

IMNSHO, they just don't GIVE a damn !

Yet, when I just checked their site a moment ago (unchanged still), they had the gall to present a popup, offering to have me do a survey.

Does anyone think that they'll pay attention to what we enter there, if we bother ?

They DO however have a decent explanation on the site about Monthly Usage, and are refraining from incorrectly calling it Bandwidth, a problem which plagues Bell and TSI, for example.

Interesting. Still haven't seen any word on Ultimate 30.
