Re: [The Call] So, I was on the phone with Rogers...

With 100+ houses passed on a cable segment today, the segments are overloaded, but we rarely feel that congestion. What continues to matter the most is the upstream. That has certainly improved on the 4 channel bonded upstream.

In general, once you exceed 10 Mbps, in normal internet browsing etc. we don't notice much the difference in speeds, so similarly, we won't see much in the way of mild congestion especially since we'll be hittiing the congestion limits of the path to the destination and the speeds of the hosts.

That isn't 100% true. There are still nodes that Rogers has not split that do experience congestion and the upstream situation is still pretty pathetic even with the upgrades. Rogers cheaped out.
