CABLE 28 after Agg

Hi. What would the approx new speeds be for CABLE 28 after the upgrade? I'm getting offered from Rogers, same price but the speeds are 35/3, of course the gigs/month is lower then Tek's. While the upload speed is nice, I hate Rogers (I've cancelled every service I had with them) and I've been with Tek for a while now and I really enjoy the service.

Guess I'm just looking for some reassurance.

Keep in mind that 35/3 from Rogers will cost you $64.99/month. TekSavvy will have 35/3 for $46.95/month for all their customers in a Rogers area by November 2013 (assuming the pricing for aggregated is the same for disaggregated).

Just called Rogers and inquired about Extreme, as a former subscriber ( right now with TSI 18/.5)
Surprise! Extreme 35/3, 200GB cap $45 +HST, rental modem included good for 8 years...
What should I do? I can wait for TSI to upgrade their POIs, but I also need a new modem for that. So more than $100 and at least 6 mo to wait... Tough decision.

If you can get that deal I say go for it, but I'm HIGHLY skeptical that Rogers would provide that.

No, Rogers has it. We've been talking about it in the Rogers forum for some time now. It expired at the end of January but it looks like it's been reactivated. Don't know if it applies to current Rogers customers.

Very nice.

Huh? What does that even mean? I wouldn't recommend counting on that, but why are they offering it, very strange.

Means the price is guaranteed for 8 years. No contract. You Tek boys are in luck.

The Dark Side awaits your return.............

8 years is an awfully long time... If I believed they were really going to honour that, I'd say it is a pretty good deal.

Anyway, could you please link the thread at the Rogers forum.

There's a thread at the RFD forum too: »forums.redflagdeals.com/rogers-e···1290815/

I'm also skeptical of the 8 years though. In the past Rogers would usually say something like "20% off," which didn't really mean much when they would increase the prices every 6 months...

That RFD thread certainly confirms the deal.. And it is pretty good, overall. I wouldn't say it is a lot better than Teksavvy/Start/Acanac offers, but it is at least competitive, and better for some people.

People considering it need to pay close attention to these experiences though:

Highly, highly skeptical of an 8-year offer. Because Rogers always makes promises to customers- and keeps them...

If it's an 8 year term, I'd want the terms clearly printed out to me, and signed by an executive. Any CSR can promise you the world...they'll even come over an wash your car

I call BS.

I'd rather pay MORE to not have to give Rogers my money (directly or at all).

But once Tek upgrades the 35/3 will be offered with 300GB and unlimited bandwidth. And another plus side to Tek is that they offer rollover gigs to the next month. Some might not find this useful but for me it is.

TS stopped rolling over bandwidth sometime last year. But your other points are valid

Maybe competition is heating up?

I think Rogers is trying to get people away from TekSavvy and others by promising something that seems like a good deal. At some point, Rogers will then offer other customers some really good deal, such as way more usage, to get these people off of this 8 year plan. Something like 75Mbps/25Mbps with 450GB usage for $54.99.

Which is stupid.

I'll be with teksavvy as long as they offer unlimited. Limiting the internet is as stupid as limiting the amount of hours somebody can watch television.

Did your parents not limit the amount of time you can go on the Internet and watch TV as a kid? Mine did.

And what good is having 1TB of Internet usage per month if you use only 100GB?

hmph

join:2012-10-23

So you are saying everyone is a kid and needs to have limited internet access?
No one cares about you using 100gb, other people use more than you.
It's not all about you.
If you have spare internet usage based on your monthly bandwidth cap, then there is nothing we can do to help you. Go download more crap then, instead of complaining about having too much.
Btw, have fun asking your parents to limit your internet usage for you.
