Re: Start Communications - new TPIA Rogers/Cogeco

Are you guys using an aggregated POI for Rogers and Cogeco? If you are what is the reason for delaying the launch in Ottawa?

Yes, we're on aggregated for both. Reason for delay on Ottawa is simply a minor technical one, should be resolved shortly.

Makes sense.

Got a few questions.

1. As you are on an aggregated POI what is the overage cost per GB?
2. Will you be offering an unlimited connection at some point?
3. Do you have a working bandwidth check for both providers?

The million dollar question. Even 25 cents/GB would be doable. I can't see it being anything higher than that.

I've never gone over 300GB. If the incumbents had these kind of plans there would be far less anger among customers.

The website indicates 50c/GB

Additional usage is 50 cents per GB on non-unlimited usage plans

The difference though is the incumbents have a TV distribution networks to protect.

With Shaw/Bell/Rogers they also have broadcast networks to protect.

1. 50 cents currently.

2. We're very active CNOC participant and working to get the capacity rates down to where they belong. If we're successful there then I forsee a day were unlimited could be available at higher speeds. With current rates though it's just not possible as the risk is in the several hundred dollars per customer.

3. For Rogers we're working on a solution, Cogeco should be in place for April.
