Re: [Cable] ATPIA - Migration Schedule UPDATED August 19th

They need people who are now on ATPIA who don't see the new speeds to give their postal codes so that the can fix their database.

TSI: L5B 0C8 (about 3-4 km from the Rogers building on Wolfdale) isn't coming up as qualifying for new speeds.

Forcing customers to do this sort of thing is one thing that contributes to their call center wait times being so long. They also can't blame Rogers for this.

We signed up via TekSavvy and supplied our address and postal code. They should merge that data into their MyWorld app in one shot versus waiting for customers to call in one by one...

well. actually. we can.

the data we use.. comes from rogers. it's full of bad data.

the boundaries of each POI keeps changing and we have no way to know... it's not as simple as saying "all of Mississauga" because that's not how it's cut up...

once everything is migrated to aggregated.. we should be in a better position to have this fixed since it wont matter any more what POI you're on.. only if you're serviced by rogers or not... since we have access to their entire footprint... until that happens. all we can order on the legacy POIs are the older speeds.. so we have to keep track...

Of course they can: Rogers is the one providing the list of eligible postal codes since TSI has no way of obtaining that information for themselves since that would require having insider knowledge of Rogers' outside-plant layout and how they are managed within individual head-ends/POIs.

If a postal code isn't in TSI's database, it most likely means it wasn't in what Rogers sent to TSI so TSI needs those codes to double-check them with Rogers before adding them.
