The Bandwidth Limit

I'm looking at Rogers Express high speed, but the 70GB bandwidth limit is too small for me. My current plan at another internet provider has slower speeds, but 105GB bandwidth. Does rogers have additional options for its Canadian residental internet?

Re: Gdkitty

I found this on a Roger's FAQ page!

 

Can I purchase more usage to increase my monthly usage allowance?

We offer five tiers of service, and each comes with a different usage allowance. The best way to increase your monthly usage allowance is to select the level of service that best meets your needs. You can also choose to pay for additional usage each month on a per-gigabyte basis.

So it would appear that you are correct Gdkitty - they would rather sell you a more expensive plan!

Re: The Bandwidth Limit

Of course they do:

 

Ultimate - 250 GB 

Extreme Plus - 150 GB

Extreme - 120 GB

 

Of course you pay more for each of these plans over the Express plan. I think that is one reason that Rogers introduced bandwidth caps - so they could suck you into purchasing the more expensve plans!

Re: The Bandwidth Limit

Unless they have STOPED doing it...

You should be able to pay for aditional bandwith on any accounts (I just threw out my sheet from a month or two ago wich showed the actual costs, as i dont see it on the web page)

 

There was a +20 and +50 package if i remember.

Re: The Bandwidth Limit

I believe you can still purchase additional usage. But it might be better to upgrade. My son was going over on his Express plan and upgraded to Extreme. They offered it to him with 20% discount and free modem. At the end of the first year, he called back to see if he could keep the discount for another year and low and behold, they upped the discount to 30%!

Re: Gdkitty

I don't see it anywhere on the website too. That's why I'm asking.

 

Anyway, how much did that cost?

Re: Gdkitty

Oddly, you dont see it on the website..

I THINK they want to try and upsell you the higher plan, rather than the aditional usage 😛

I had it on a sheet with the prices of things that were going up this year.. wish i had kept it.
Its something like $10 for 20g or something like that. 

 

 I would give them a call.

Re: Gdkitty

That only shows the overcharging for the per gb if you go over your limit.

There is some set amount packages, which are normaly cheaper that that way.
