said by sourtimes:Rogers will activate any modem for you on their interent if its on an approved TPIA modem list. I know someone who they said they refused to activate a SB6120, he dropped the cancellation that he'll go to teksavvy with that modem, it was provisioned right after that. said by geokilla:
Good deal. Being a current Rogers customer for TV and wireless phone, speaking with retentions would give me a higher probability of getting unlimited bandwidth usage, and a good wireless retention plan if I have all 3 services.

I remember getting an almost identical envelope earlier this week, of course it probably spent 5 minutes in my home before it was sent through the paper shredder.
I mean seriously Rogers, the only advantage that your "offer" has over my current TekSavvy cable service is the increased download speed. Otherwise I have 100GB more bandwidth, pay $5 less a month, experience no DNS BS, I don't have some c*** modem/Wi-Fi combo and TekSavvy doesn't call you every couple of months with "offers" because all you have is Internet service through them.
Teksavvy 35/3 is $50/month, so where'd you get $5 less per month? Not quite sure what you mean by DNS BS either. Only downside is 200GB/month compared to 300GB/month.
Let's also not forgot that with Teksavvy you also get:
- 100GB more a month
- Unlimited uploads
- Free bandwidth between 2am and 8am
- Not locked into using the POS router/modem combo from Rogers
- No worries about 'billing errors', sudden price hikes, harassing Rogers telemarketing calls.
Yeah... a big pass to Rogers. They can frankly go cornhole themselves.
All this says to me is that finally Rogers and Bell are starting to feel the heat in declining revenues now that there is some competition in the internet space offering reasonable, non backdoor raping internet packages. Unfortunately they lost themselves mindshare with a lot of customers that have left, so it will take a lot more than mediocre deals that are still not as good as the competition to make those customers forget how crooked and shady Rogers/Bell are.
