Rogers in Collingwood

I was wondering if anyone in the Collingwood area could tell me how well Rogers@Home works up there, I recently purchased a house and have Rogers ready to go when I move in.

Thanks for your input in Advance.

Check with Rogers to confirm that high speed internet is available in Collingwood. It has not been available in Collingwood, Meaford, Owen Sound and Midland areas until Rogers can complete a fibre link out of Barrie. hey are working on the last links this summer. They are saying they will be offering high speed internet by the fall.

ya, the install is already set up for June 24th, Currently Collingwood (my area I guess) has @home access & Sympatico (which I currently use), Wasaga Beach is still without either in the west end.

I doubt you have @home access. They died 6 months ago...

Wasaga Beach does have Sympatcio Higfh Speed, according to the chart. Possibly not all exchanges.

Sorry, not @Home, old habit

My Rogers install date is June 26th.

Just wondered what kind of consistency I can expect from it.

Since Rogers internet is new to the area, I suspect you will have reasonably good speed. Sympatico and BMTS have had the dialup market and high speed market cornered for 18 months. And you will probably have Rogers newest setup.

Interesting. Their trucks have been very much in evidence this week in Owen Sound. What kind of speeds are you getting in Collingwood?

After some tweaking, see anywhere from 150-300 download and around 25-30 upload.
