Re: Major CRTC decision next week. - CBB

said by Guspaz:

Sorry, I'd take 50/10 DSL over 60/3 cable any day of the week.

If what was announced in Videotron's forum is real, all TGV tiers are getting bumped to 10Mbps upload in April.

Yes, they made a press release.
Among other things, an itsy bitsy teenie tiny increase in usage (or the unlimited option), upload increased to 10-meg, business internet no longer with caps, unlimited (again).

See this bottom of this:

That's surprising, since Videotron doesn't support upstream bonding, although perhaps that's changing in April. It's too bad, I'd consider taking 60/10 cable over 50/10 DSL, but with the CBB rates the CRTC just set, cable will never be competitive with DSL.

Quite puzzling that they haven't enabled bonding yet. They certainly have all the equipment so support should be little more than a few administrative commands away to enable it on their CMTS.

As for CBB rates, cable certainly lost a lot of its potential appeal there. Only time will tell how that shakes out.

There have been a couple of postings here over the past few days of people reporting 3X upstream bonding in Quebec.. I assume those are on Videotron (?).

Edit: Can't find them right now.. I could have been confusing Cogeco's recent 3X uplink with Videotron in my mind.

Cogeco's doing four channel 64QAM in a bunch of places, too.

But yeah, they're running three upstream channels on my node. My DPC3000 won't tell me if they're 16 or 64, though.

4 channel bonding on upstream w/ videotron. Been like that for about 4 years minimum, as far as I recall.

Videotron & Shaw have been one of the best and most advanced cable companies is all of North America in terms of speed deployment in both upstream, downstream, and in terms of first to deploy. I think the Docsis 3 wiki even mentions it.

I don't know about Shaw, but Videotron has had 300-meg down and 100-meg up test beds since... going by memory since ~2009-2008.

@mlord, yeah I recall a few topics over the past few years talking about it. Tried looking, couldn't find them either.

Just came across this blog from 3 years ago though:
»www.cedmagazine.com/blogs/2010/0···h-64-qam

Been a few years... this isn't anything new with videotron. Not sure where people are getting that they have no upstream bonding...

I also seem to recall a Motorola or Cisco white-paper on videotron and their set-up and the research they all put in to become the first and fastest in all of North America. I *think* it might have been on Goldbergs blog 3-4 years ago.

Anyhow... been a few years. Nothing new.

Only the modems listed on TekSavvy's website in the Approved Modems list under Cable packages are allowed by Rogers on their network.

As for will it work, some users here on DSLR have gotten non-approved Motorola modems with TekSavvy accounts. They report it as SB6121 and give them the serial number of their modem. This is not recommended though, if you ever have any issues like DHCP. line sync/quality or other issues that need to get forwarded to Rogers for a ticket, they can simply deny support on the basis of an unsupported CPE device being connected.
