Ok...now I am TOTALLY OUTRAGED
If you read back in the archives...I used to have TONS of problems with rogers. When they offered 3000/400 ... I was on a node that was JAMMED....and for months I was getting terrible speeds.
I've been with Rogers now for a couple of years, and not once have I come close to their advertised rates. Now that people started getting capped ((which I didn't realize this was all happening until LASTNIGHT!)) ... I have been getting 2200/385 consistantly. No matter what time of day or night I tested. So I was extremely happy with that.
Unfortunately I was hit yesterday with this cap, and no matter what .. I get 1100/185 ... I thought there were technical difficulties with rogers due to my slow speeds. Low and behold that there is nothing wrong with my connection...it's the tighter cap they placed on us! This is pathetic!!
I can't believe they can do this.
People in the US - NY .. just a couple hours away are enjoy Optimum Online. My friend gets speeds of 6000/750+ consistantly! This isn't fair that we have to be stuck with crappy Rogers cable. I went over to Telus for awhile..however it was way too expensive at 80/month .. and they didn't even give their full advertised speeds to me. And that was aDSL. Not only that, but aDSL pings higher than cable..so it's terrible for online multiplayer games.
Is there a guarantee that we will be able to pay a few more $$ to get faster speeds now? If so, when will this be implimented? This is total BS
And when the up/down gig caps start....this is going to kill us and put us in even more debt than we already are! Then what!?!?
