I am not pleased...

Yea i just got capped this morning...

But the is FREAKING BS!

Im getting 842/185 on my speed tests..There no way im paying for this..I want to be close to the 1.5/192 ...Im not paying 45.00/month to have this...Too bad i cant get AEI..

Anyways im calling them tomorow..I want higher speeds..I went from over 2mbps to this..Im cancelling.

BTW in game servers i was playing in b4...I got 100 pings..Now there 600-700..Theres no way im putting up with a ping so high..

Anyways

Join the club, I went from 3000/384k (Easily 300K+ d/l) to this: »/speedtests/12···25670213

Oh yeah, it was also mint when I "tweaked" my modem for a day. =]

I'd bet some of you remember that.

Craziest thing is, I used to have 48ms in Quake3 before the infamous cap, and still have 48ms after the cap.

Don't worry about it boys...

I'm getting some terrible speeds....pings that are HIGH as F##K and I'm seeing some nice packet loss

You are not alone!

Hehe, who would be pleased about their speeds being slashed in half and the price stayed the same. Rogers figures this is a perfectly good thing to do, since they never guaranteed any speeds in the past. I told one tech that I was getting 300KB/sec downloads, and he screamed at me saying those speeds were almost unheard of on the Rogers network. So go figure. He nearly shit his pants when I told him that back in the Shaw days I routinely went over 1000KB/sec sustained speeds on huge files... It was so funny, this guy was quite the moron.

There has been a 50% decrease in the speed cap and a twelve and a half percent or $5.00 increase in monthly fees.

I most definitely agree...I use a Tucows download as my test...This gives me a better idea of the Rogers Network.

MAu, you know your connection is good, you cant trust that stupid nyc server, its worthless sometimes, tucows is the best, I get my steady 320-330 on that, which I am really happy with.

your pings are the same because online games, especially on the q3a engine, dont push your connection to its limits
the ping times to your phub, etc are what makes up your ping, and rogers didnt tamper with these...

B34tbox, that made no sense. When did I say I was capped? Please check into things before you open your mouth.

Even if we aren't getting that when the file is completed, the fact is we aint capped are we, thats the fact, Since you know our connection sooooooooo well, to tell if we are capped or not, I just felt like telling you that well you were wrong. I get 320-330 while downloading, when the file has been completed, I have achieved a rate of 290-319.

yea ericsson
my area is fucked up tho
my browsing is slow and i get some packet loss in pings and traceroutes... i never get it in online games tho... it seems to be fixed but still...
yesterday the power was out in my area and after it came back on i was browsing soo fast... almost instant page loads... now its slowed down again... its not very slow but it should be faster for a 3mbit connection
