Re: Anyone have business internet with Rogers?

Can a Rogers or Tek-Savvy cable modem that has been registered for use at location A be moved and used at location B, assuming that the cable connection at location B has not been disconnected, and the geographic distance between location A and B is a mile or less?

To ask this another way, unlike the telephone system where each pair of copper wires terminates into its own line card at a CO, cable systems are distributed and act more like a party line. What is the typical physical / geographic granularity by which a cable operator can distinguish or know when a cable modem is operating in a premises other than what it's registered for?

If I remember correctly, as long as it's within the Rogers network- it will work. I did take a Rogers modem from my house to my folks office to do some OS X updates that would've taken forever on their previous DSL connection and had no trouble.

Yes it can be.. However, wouldn't recommend this if you're using it for business, because if Rogers does an audit and cuts off the line, you'll be stuck without internet for days before you can get an installer out to install proper service.
