Since Rogers has tight bandwidth/download limits, and the customer pays for the extra gigs they use if they go over. How come if you don't use all of your alloted gigs, they are not rolled over to the next month?
for instance you use 56 of your 60 gigs the first month... that is 4 gigs you paid for but didn't use so next month your allotment should be 64 gigs.
thanks but I don't really believe that.... Other companies offer far higher bandwidth allotment. Also in the USA and other parts of Canada the limit is MUCH higher. I think Rogers may enjoy people going over their limit to so they can charge them extra $$$$. They are a business after all. I was thinking about upgrading to Extreme internet but now that they lowered the limit from 90 to 80 (b/c of NetFlixx???) ...bah I feel like I would be getting cheated.
Think about it, assuming that you are on Express (the level below Extreme), then upgrading would mean a difference of $13.
If, however, you stay on Express, but use the 80 GB that you would have had on Extreme then that would be a difference of 20GB at $2/GB, making it $40 more.
That's a big difference. Rogers doesn't want you to upgrade to Extreme, it's better for them.
You get slower speeds (2/3rds the download, 1/2 the upload) which is less of a burden on their system, AND you pay them $40 more for it.
No wonder their "Change Package" link doesn't work in MyRogers.
Of course, if you don't go near 60GB/month and don't care about speeds, then you're fine.
I would state their name, but our of respect for Rogers forum I won't.
.... but their MAIN competitor offers 75 gigs a month around $52.
(even that isn't great compared to American ISPs) ...but Rogers trimming bandwidth is the opposite direction of their competitors
I had a HUGE bandwith limit drop...
My student plan (Lite + SpeedBoost + More GB) from last year ended a few months ago and dropped me from 95GB/month to 25GB/month.
A few days later (like one or two) Rogers dropped the bandwith cap for Lite to 15GB/month.
Luckily I got it upgraded to Express...but 60GB/month is still not enough for a house of 4 students.
