Rogers HiSpeed Extreme

So i'm checking out my account with Rogers, I have the extreme package for internet, which was 13mb/sec download and 90GB/month, i had the motorola modem.
Well after checking on their site and noticed that my package they offer 120GB/month, I was a little annoyed that i'm getting only 90GB
I called them and they said sure we can up your limit but you will have to get a new modem. I said fine.
Then she also informed me that they have done some upgrades and with the new modem not only will i get 120GB/month but my download speed will be bumped to 35mb/sec.
Well I wasn't sure I would notice any speed difference but when I got home and hooked it all up....WOW! there was a BIG difference.

i'm a very happy camper, same price for faster speeds and more bandwidth!

LOVE it!

Rogers was always good, updates would come, boost in speed for no additional fee. I did switch though however as I needed more bandwidth then they could offer. They even updated my monthly bandwidth to 300 gigs a month, for no additional fees. With Techsavvy now. Other then one regional outage, its been working fine.

Anything below like 20/mb sec feels like a snail now.

thats good, but i'm happy with Rogers service, and with everything bundled, you call them up ask what deals they have going on and you save more.
I"m getting all my devices ie. HD PVR, HD BOX, Digital BOX, modem all rent free for 2 years, plus an additional 25% off my bill.

The PVR rental alone is $25/month

People don't realize if they call every year (if you have a contract deal, then call when its over) and negotiate a new promo that they have.

If you dont' ask you wont' get.

Get the DCM476 from TekSavvy. You can't find it much cheaper anywhere else, and you save $20 on the activation by buying the modem from them.

Obviously, if you can find the modem for less than $80 elsewhere, that's the better deal.

Don't buy a DOCSIS 2 modem - complete waste of money.

Not to brag... BUT FibreStream for the win, unlimited bandwidth, 50dl/50up, $69... Excellent uptime in the 2 years I've been with them(only one outage, with service restored in a couple hours).

And I've actually gotten up to 57down and 53up on speed tests, though few if any real world servers can actually send/receive data at those speeds, with some exceptions, main ones I've noticed that seem to be able to actually handle those speeds are YouTube, Netflix, and Apple/iTunes...

Their Fibre50 package is a new offering though, I'm pretty sure I'm their first customer on it.
