Re: [Cable] Faster Cable tiers?

said by XNemesis:

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?

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.
