Rogers Half-Speed er Hi-Speed 225% PRICE INCREASE

I am getting pissed off with Rogers and their one-sided TOS, and the fact that they have cut the speed back by 50% while lying about it. I am not a bandwidth hog, but over the past two years my service has increased in price by 12.5% but they now deliver 50% less product. This in effect works out to a price increase of 225.2%, plus a yet to be decided cap, but seeing how Rogers is matching Sympatico I would guess 5 GB/month. Rogers new advertised on their website is "up to" 1.5 mbps down (was 3 mbps)/ 192 kbps up (was 400 kbps)

Wow. I looked at that very page just a few days ago and never saw that. I sure hope that change in speed never comes. I think it may be to combat all the slowness some people see. Its a way to cover their butts.

I think I'm still good for the 3mb cap
