What changes will happen to the extreme plan?

Just got the message again, so here you go:

Our constant network improvement means we're always getting faster - so you can go faster too! Effective by December 1, 2012 we're upgrading your Rogers Hi-Speed EXTREME package's download speed to up to 35 Mbps1 (currently up to 28 Mbps) and the upload speed to up to 3 Mbps2 (currently up to 1 Mbps). Your SpeedBoost will also be increased by December 1. This exclusive Rogers technology will speed up your content download or streaming activity for the first 20 MB (currently 10 MB) when there's available bandwidth3. Enjoy these faster speeds to download, surf and stream faster - at no additional charge.

All other aspects of your Rogers service(s) will remain the same. For more information or questions, please contact us in any of the ways listed on rogers.com/contactus. Please print a copy of this notice for your records. Thank you.

1. Speeds may vary with internet traffic, server gateway/router, computer (quality, location in the home, software and applications installed), home wiring, home network or other factors. Also see the Acceptable Use Policy at rogers.com/terms. Modem set-up: the system is configured to maximum modem capabilities within Rogers own network.

2. In some areas, Rogers manages upstream peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing applications speed to a maximum of 80 kbps per customer for Rogers Hi-Speed Internet (delivered over cable). This policy is maintained at all times. For information on Rogers Internet traffic management practices and Legal Disclosure at rogers.com/networkpolicy

3. Exclusively available from Rogers within Rogers cable serviceable area. SpeedBoost technology temporarily increases download speeds for the first 20MB of a file download when extra bandwidth is available on the network. Actual speed may vary based on network traffic, amount of data transferred and length of time since last boost and other factors.
