Re: Unlimited Internet option on Rogers for a limited time

said by HiVolt:

So if you're only an internet subscriber without any other services, you cannot add this?

See 2nd bullet point - it's $30.

Yeah, I misread it...

So the exact "monkey-see monkey-do" option like Bell...

How the hell is this not collusion?

Customers on Express and up have to carry the Enhanced modem ($8/mo) to get the unlimited usage --- sucks for anyone that already bought the Wireless N Gateway

Try calling them again. Point out that the website says "Now you can add unlimited internet to any package too!". No mention in the fine print of 150/10 not being eligible.

Demand to speak to a manager if they still say no.

You're already paying over $200, what's another $100.

Tell them to piss off, and send them to their own website which states this"Rogers already gives you the fastest Hi-Speed Internet in the most homes with speeds up to 150Mbps1 on our Ultimate package. Now you can add unlimited internet to any package too! Download, upload, and stream without worrying!"

Because Bell and Rogers said so....

absolutely not true. i've got the cisco dpc3825, which is $7/month and can get unlimited on all plans, as they were about to give me unlimited on the old ultimate plan last night. only upgrade required is for the new 150/10. so don't just state something that's a lie for others to take at your word.

Is it possible to get unlimited with the DPC3825? They are saying I have to "upgrade" to the Hitron modem.

Bullshit. The cap has nothing do with the modem.

It isn't BS if the rogers system won't allow you to upgrade to unlimited without the Hi-Tron.

Has anyone upgraded to unlimited with the Cisco DPC?

Well the person submitted a form for ultimate for me, on the SMC modem. Just sharing my exp. Said I should get it within 3-5 days. I thought it was going to be an instant change starting on the 19th?

Wrong buddy, they will not give unlimited to me just because I have ultimate, home phone, and cable TV. I have already contacted the office of the president and its a no go even from them (yyzlhr was right), they ARE false advertising! Its only available to plans lower then ultimate.

Here is what they had to say:

"You are correct in that the details on the Rogers.com website indicate that you can add unlimited internet to any package. With that said, as was discussed earlier, the details as to how unlimited usage is attained for the different tiers is explained in the links provided on that same page. This is not false advertising; you were advised earlier what would be required to have unlimited usage on the Ultimate tier [downgrade to extreme plus or cancel home phone or cancel cable tv]. However, I do apologize if the wording on the page has confused matters. You have my assurance that your feedback will be forwarded to our Planning department in order to review how the details are explained, to ensure the specifications are provided in a clear and concise manner."

As you can see they are just being stubborn as if having two services vs three services makes a difference.

not sure. it was a long time between responses for a bit. i questioned the $152.99 as i was on the older plan since nobody wanted to confirm that i could get 150/10 here in ottawa (i already knew it was available in kanata). never mentioned the modem change, but i suppose that would've been where the conversation went had i agreed to the ultimate package. 35 down is fine for me, before i switched to rogers for internet i was on 6 down with acanac dsl, so i've just been plan hopping as usage needs change for the caps. i'll take $65 unlimited at 35 down over $92 for ultimate speed that i don't really need.

edit: sorry, you can get unlimited with the cisco box, however i cannot confirm if unlimited ultimate is available.

it's still available to anyone with the cisco router, which is what i stated. the fact that you can't obtain it as a customer with other services, is a different story. but it is an actual fact that it can be obtained by someone with the cisco router. see my previous post with a direct screenshot with confirmation from the RogersHelps team on Twitter. nothing stopped me from upgrading to unlimited ultimate with the cisco router last night, except the fact that a) RogersHelps closed for the night and b) i downgraded my plan.
