Rogers increasing their down/up speed... Will TS follow?

I just saw a thread about how Rogers will be increasing their default down/up speeds and I'm wondering how this is gonna impact Teksavvy..... Will TS be doing the same to remain competitive?

Also, Bell Fibe is now available in Ottawa Ontario.... Will TS be increasing their default down/up speeds to remain competitive??

Wondering.....

But you should probably read the entire thread.

And.....??

Not trying to sound difficult but no one has answered the question yet which is why I'm still hoping for an answer from someone IN THE KNOW. I just read the entire posted thread and it does not give a clear answer whatsoever.

A simple "Yes" or a "Not at this time but we may change things soon" would suffice.

MARC has stated on the other thread that the CRTC has to be involved as Rogers is refusing to upgrade any TPIA providers unless they agree with moving to the new aggregated system and a price increase. It's against the rules the CRTC set as Rogers is not increasing prices for their own users and they are not allowed to not upgrade tiers that currently are offered on non-aggregated either.

I expect we will get it sometime in 2013, after the harm is done..

The question was answered in that post in the best way it can possibly be answered at the moment:

Rogers isn't letting Teksavvy have the speed upgrades without a fight at the CRTC. Getting the speed upgrades will depend on if they win or lose that fight.

There just isn't a yes/no answer right now, but the really short summary is:

Rogers is legally obligated to make the speeds available to TekSavvy as a free upgrade. Rogers is completely ignoring this and trying to charge more money. As a result the matter will go to the CRTC and they will decide what happens. Until the CRTC decides no one is sure of anything. It might be a free upgrade or existing users might continue at current speeds/prices and new speeds/prices will be introduced.

Fixed.
