No Caps ?!?!?!

Just reported in one of the Rogers newsgroups.

"At this time we have no plans to implement caps."

Either there has been a change, or the CRR had a braindump, or "at this time" is a huge escape clause, or some combination of the three!

Also, there are reports that Sympatico is having second thoughts about caps.

Don't know about that one, I can't see they would just abandon their business model. I honestly doubt it.

I e-mailed rogers asking whether we are going to get caps, it was an automatic reponse, but i think we are getting them, they would of said we weren't getting them if we weren't.

"Rogers Hi-Speed Internet:
up to 1.5 Mbs download, 192k upload

Download speeds can vary with Internet traffic, server or other factors.

We do not have any information regarding capping limits, usage charges
or further tiered packages. If our packages change in any way, we will
receive a formal communication via bulletin.

They're not going to tell you anything until they actually do it. Speculating will just drive you around the bend. "At this time..." means right when you asked me the question. That could change after lunch.

Now if we can only get them to raise your QOS Max Downstream Bandwidth.

especially considering rogers started the whole bandwidth cap debate over 6 months ago.

It was in the rogers.general usenet newsgroup (available only from the rogers nntp server).

Considering they're now advertising 1.5/192 the chance of my d/l going at 3Mbits/sec is slim to none!
