Multiple Technician Appointments Cancelled...

I've Been Around

The issue is IGNITE that completely failed over a period of five-six days at the end of October here in eastern Mississauga.  We had no working tv, internet or home phone.  I must have called Rogers ten times, each time getting the same canned apologies and declarations that the company will do everything to take care of us.  Empty slogans!


I rebooted and unscrewed cables many times, finally, on Friday Nov. 1 someone promised to send a technician on Saturday morning, but also put us on priority list in case one is available on Friday.  No-one showed up on either day despite the fact that on Friday night I was again assured that Saturday was the big day.  Of course, we were stupid enough and did not leave home because Rogers promised to send someone.


Finally, on Saturday I spoke to a 'Matthew' from Toronto, a supervisor, who was surprised that anyone can take seriously Rogers' promise to provide a technician on a given day.  He was flippant, argumentative and stated that a client who believes that should also believe in 'Justin Trudeau's promises'.  He saw nothing wrong in the fact that no-one at Rogers felt obligated to notify us that a promised intervention has been cancelled.


So he scheduled a Sunday visit, and again after a wait no-one arrived and I was informed that it was cancelled - by whom they would not tell us.  We again were not informed or warned. By this time I was boiling and ready to rip up Rogers' cabling but luck struck - I was dealing with Julianna, who was the first of many staff I spoke with to ask me to run an internet speed test - which was very low. 


She turned out to be very competent and genuinely apologetic,  finally scheduled a third visit and then confirmed it twice. On Monday a technician came, worked for half an hour and did the repairs.  The icing on the cake was that after he left, a second one arrived but better two than none.


There are two lessons here.  One, IGNITE was introduced too early without ironing out all kinks. Two, do not believe when you Rogers promises that 'a technician will arrive between 10 and 12!!!

Not trying to be apologetic here or anything..

In most areas, its 3rd party company's that are sub contractors to rogers which are doing all the work.   

At least in my area.. while I have had bad techs, I have always (well maybe minus one time) that they show up in the scheduled window.

They have a scheduling system, and yes it is supposed to be followed.
That the manager said that?  Yeah... someones completely wrong there.

I have not received any replies or messages from Rogers as of yet,I still cannot believe that Rogers treats a loyal customer of over 40 years this way.
