Re: Rogers Upstream Bonding

CONFIRMED!

- You may need the Cisco device to take advantage of faster upload speeds. I assume the 4 channel capable SMC is also possible but the tech I spoke to was under the impression that "only the new device would work which is why we're rolling it out now". Grain of salt here.

- Extreme plus is going to 7Mbps. Ultimate is going to 10Mbps.

- This will all happen on the 26th of August.

All of the numbers and info above was provided by the tech directly with no prompting so this looks pretty official.

Happy day!

Hey Panda,

I have not receive any mail or never got a mail from Robbers before for upgrading or account changes confirmation. Is this a 100% thing that it will happen?

For the modem, are you sure that smc is not or not up too to technical to handle upstream bonding better than the new cisco? If your information is correct, I may need to call robbers' store to find out about the modem in-stock. This is a good new for all of us.

Wow, I was expecting 2 or 4, 7mbps upload sounds great.
Now they are competing.

I haven't received any information by notification either. I just prodded a tech for information. Put me on hold for 2 minutes and came back and said (paraphrased):

"Yes, as you are in Ontario you will get upgraded on August 26th, which is this Friday. You have the Cisco modem, which you need in order to get the upgrade. Because you have Ultimate you'll be getting upgraded to 10Mbps upload speeds instead of 7Mbps."

I asked a bunch of questions and confirmed that Extreme+ is going to receive 7Mbps but I didn't get information about any tiers below E+.

I asked if I -needed- the Cisco and if the SMC device would work instead and was told "you need the Cisco but don't worry because you already have it". I suspect this was a misunderstanding on tech's part though.

I personally suspect that the SMC works fine as it handles 4x upstream channels. If Saturday arrives you don't have faster upload speeds you can call to check though.

Also it goes without saying that TPIA is probably going to have to wait a while.

Well I suspect they will start with GTA as always, but I have not even heard anyone else mention anything about this. I have 2 connections myself - a Rogers one and a TSI one (both cable), so I guess I'll see if anything happens on the 26th.
