Re: Rogers new speed and prices

said by kanatamike:

Are you talking about the top two plans, 250 Mb and 350 Mb? They're available in a VERY limited area. I don't see any significant change in the price of the other packages.

I would think the 250/20 would be widely available. It's just the 150/10 plan upgraded and given more cap. The 350/350 is fibre, it'll be extremely limited in terms of availability.

The 250/20 isn't widely available yet.. Many areas aren't ready for it, hense the availability checker.

They probably haven't rolled out the additional downstream channels required for the service to all the cable nodes. It isn't as simple as you have described it.

Actually it's more on the upstream side still. 64QAM X 8 channels needs to be upgraded and the plant needs to be "hardened". The hitron cgn3 with 24x8x bonding is currently the only modem that will work with this package.

They're not running more than 4 channels upstream. But its probably both that needs upgrading. Either way work needs to done at the nodes for each neighborhood. The modem part was already obvious.
