Re: Sneaky trick to fool rogers techs

Its not the modem guys! 90% of the modems that get returned are fine. Most of the time its either a line issue or a headend issue.
Then they get tested and set out to people again. So it doesn't hurt them that much. Everyone will get a new modem at some point but I am in no rush to get one

But it costs money to roll a truck to your house to swap the modem, it costs them money to have the modem tested, repacked and shipped. All these things add to the cost of providing service.
