I ve had Rogers since October... I used to get 1800 to 2400 kbps downloads commonly... The past 3 month i always get above 1000 kbps and below 1200 kbps... Never more, and rarely less. Any recomendations... My upload is is usually around the 365 kbps territory.
Personally I'd be happy if always got D/L above 1000.
U/L 365 I've never been close to that.
Given that Rogers now advertises D/L "up to" 1500 you're not doing badly.
Just tested mine am currently D/L 578, the absolute max I get is 1700 if I am on between 5:00 and 7:00 a.m.. During the day get between 800-1100, evening between 500-800. This compares to 4000 I got when it was Shaw. Then 2500 and a steady decline since Rogers took over.
In most new areas, it has been put in place with the TeraPro modems. I get the impression that this is an advertising change to get over the "Up to 100 times as fast as dial-up", which precious few people can do. I suspect that everyone who currently gets over the 1.5 cap will continue to do so unless Rogers has to recommision your neighbourhood to do a node split, for example.
That's my gut feel.
Next we'll see changes in the "unlimited access" part of the ads too.
