Re: Beat them at their own game!

Wouldn't it just be simpler to get people to drop Rogers?

If companies like Netflix saw Rogers as competition and offered tips on things like OTA and internet alternatives on their website then that would help.

The problem is that as much as the majority of people on these forums loathe Rogers and Bell, they are never going to away.

Without the last might mile infrastructure from Rogers and Bell, third party providers wouldn't be able to operate.

There's already a cooperative out there:

It was formerly known as CAM back in the dialup days.

Despite the novel idea behind the non-profit co-op ISP, they're rates are expensive and caps are the same or worse than the big 3.

Oh, I know. Just pointing out to the OP that the idea isn't new - it goes all the way back to the 90s, and it hasn't helped in any way with pricing/service.
