No monthly transfer caps yet, leech all you want. They just recently capped the speeds though, 1500kbps down and 192kbps up. Rumors fly that they won't implement monthly transfer caps until the new year...

Heh, what did I say? Might as well enjoy the freedom until it ends, no? I didn't tell him to download 100gigs per month, did I? heh...

Argh... like I was saying before, Rogers gets caps... I kill myself!

Sympatico put in 5gb Upload/Download caps... That's one of the reasons that forced me to switch. One of the things that really fried me was that they said the caps are permanent!

"Sympatico HSE Sales Agent: The average user downloads 2-5gb in a month."

^^^ Well I guess I'm not that average user!! =\

What's this "Rogers Business Solutions"? Are they trying to impersonate another Sympatico High-speed Ultra package?? AHHHHHHH! My life is ruined!

It's exactly what it sounds like, Cable internet for businesses... Same stuff Bell is doing... If your address is zoned commercial, they won't install the residential service, they force you to sign up for the business package, which is the same bloody technology and infrastructure. Just a higher price, just because. go figure eh?

And even if you sign up with the business package, Rogers can't/won't give you a static IP. Which makes it extremely USELESS for business if you ask me!

If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Otherwise it WILL need fixing!

Because its not really "business" class connection anyway... Its just a way for them to charge more money, for the same crappy service they have for residential... It's always been this way. Heh i wonder if they even allow servers.

Well I am going to find out next week. Currently my office is using a wireless broadband connection, but the ISP is incompetent because they have been dealing with a DoS attack for something like 8 months and it brings all the customer's connections down every time it happens. We can't do business like this anymore, and Bell isn't close enough for DSL. I wish we could get Bell, our uptime in the last three years in Toronto has been better than 99.9%.

Rogers dropped by last week and while they still don't have static IP's, they do have some sort of DNS service which resolves to your dynamic IP. I know it sounds hokey, and I know how pathetic Rogers is, but we are getting desperate for reliable service.

Next week, myself and our corporate systems manager will get on a conference call with some Rogers business rep who I have the number for and ask all sorts of hard questions about the service. Among the questions are:

Transfer speeds up and down
Cost
any charges for bandwidth usage
how quickly is the DNS server updated if our IP changes
How quickly can the service be installed
Do they allow servers (I can't see how the answer could be no, but you never know)
latency
Uptime/reliability guarantee - this is a biggie

Any other questions that people want me to ask? I'll post the results of the conference call here.

I used to have rogers business solution at my office, they promised the world, super fast with thier business network, a lot of IT buzzwords and phrases. Thier service sucked so bad. The tech rep said that servers where OK, then sent me an email saying that servers violated thier EUL. Remove the server immediatly... (by the way, it was a back up FTP server, unused, and scanned port 21). The also blocked "non-rogers" pop3 mail accounts. If you don't use their web hosting, you'll end up with serious delays in your email. I switched to AT&T ADSL. It's a 4meg line, and they quoted me a 50 GB transfer/month for the same price as Rogers. Came with a Cisco 827 router. For the last 4 months the system has been rock solid, on 24/7 and has not crashed once. BTW, their tech support is awsome. try saying that about rogers....ever!
