I have Rogers Extreme Internet, and it's usually fine and fast. But for the past couple weeks or so, I've been experiencing slow loading and high ping. Pages load slower and sometimes I need to refresh them just to get them to load. Watching video on my mobile device sometimes stutters in the beginning (YouTube) and takes longer to start.
I've checked SpeedTest.net and my ping ranges from 60 ms to 200 ms. My download speed is atrocious at 4 Mbps to 8 Mbps on average -- far lower than before, and what I'm supposed to be paying for. Upload speed, however, is fine at 6 Mbps on average.
Absolutely nothing has changed on my end. It is definitely a problem with Rogers service. I hope they're not throttling me or whatever, because that's kind of illegal and I know they've done scummy things like that and been sued for it.
Here's a graph showing some decline
What area do you live? Because here in Northern N.B. we have had all kinds of problem in February but now it seems to have settled for the best since approximately 1 week.
Call them. Ask to talk to a customer relation tech. You won't even have to beg they will give you a full month credit and then some. This is totally unaceptable and I know this should not happen but at my local Roger store, someone working there told me about 2 weeks ago that it is because of the $99.99 promo they have been running and this has caught them off guard and they just can't keep up with the demand. They have to upgrade their equipment and fast because they will lose a lot of customers. Here in Edmundston, February was a very crappy month to be a Rogers customer.
Go through customer support because you first have to get a grip of someone but after that just ask to talk to a customer relation person because there is no option to directly talk to them. That's what I did after a tech told me that if I was not happy with his response, that he could transfer me to a customer relation rep.
