Re: [Cable] Faster Cable tiers?

I checked out the 150Mb package from rogers...wow, only 250Gb for that speed. I wonder what the reasoning is for such measly caps? Is it that much more expensive to offer even double that or is it even a matter of price?

From what I've heard (but I haven't confirmed this myself) they'll only come after TekSavvy switches to aggregated. Which is in progress but an expensive and complex transition. I think still waiting on the CRTC relating to interconnect pricing.

Teksavvy wants to delay the switch to Aggregated POI IIRC... I'd rather pay more so they can get the switch done sooner. Doesn't make sense to continue to expand an old technology when the switch to Aggregated POI has to be done sooner or later.

Why do you think Robellus now charges $73/$75 for more or less the same 6GB Super Plan that they offered last month for around $60?

Yeah that cap is a joke. It can be hit in under 4 hours at full speed.

250,000 megabytes time 8 = 2 million megabits /150 = seconds
222 minutes of net use OR just over 3 hrs
considering i can buy a 4tb a month dedicated 100 megabit for less then you pay a month well i guess they are over charging....and don't forget bibics admission that iptv goes over the same net and they charged 9.99 for essentially a unmetered 25/7 megabit service
so it costs very very little to profit from.
