and they would have a 10GB cap with said service. So it is nonsense that they would triple their customer base...
Well, that may be true. My point was, not everybody needs massive caps and downstream speed. I use my computer 12 hours a day yet I rarely use more than 16GB/month. I certainly don't need 25 down but the 2 up is ideal.
If Rogers were to cut the Express 25/2 80GB in half and create a tier with that @$25/month then IMHO it would suit the needs of a large demographic that isn't currently being addressed. Paying $48.99 for 80GB is a waste for me when 40GB would still be more than double what I use.
A residential 10/2 tier at $25/$30 month would fill my needs perfectly.
There are probably many users over 55 that aren't download junkies. To me, the internet is just another source of information that I use. Nothing more/nothing less. We grew up without the Internet. It's not that big of a "must have".
Since Rogers insists on bandwidth caps then IMHO Rogers should move to true Usage Based Billing and all bandwidth should be sold in 20/50/100GB blocks or just charge the consumer for the bandwidth they actually use.
Even if it was $30 for the 10/2 plus whatever bandwidth block you purchased IMHO at least you're only billed for what you use/want.
