Once again the rural mobile Internet users are getting hosed. Recently virgin mobile (bell) and fido( Rogers ) are offering unlimited wireless home Internet packages for around $60. Unlimited. Under Rogers high usage plan my bills are consistently $ 110 plus tax for usage over 20gb up to 50 gb and whether I use 21gb or 49 gb the price remains the same. Expensive and unfair pricing but once again, being rural, my options are bell or Rogers.
These new packages by virgin and fido prove that better pricing can be done. Why do we continue to get gouged.
I live 30 minutes from London Ontario along the 401 corridor. the network in this area has been established for some time. I will no longer accept network access as an excuse for expensive service. I can't begin to describe who frustrating thus is.
Thank you for posting on the Community Forums!
We appreciate your feedback and welcome you to keep an eye on Rogers.com for new plans options and cable internet availability in your area in the future.
Good grief there are 5 homes within a kilometer of my home. Our expectations for cable are non existent yet there are 6 cell towers within a 5 kilometer radius of my location. The frustrating part is that these unlimited wireless services are being offered in areas that already have dozens of options while rural customers are gouged or forgotten about. It would not cost bell or Rogers an additional penny to offer rural customers this.
My pursuit of fairness in pricing will continue outside of this forum . The existence of more cost effective plans through virgin mobile and fido prove that better pricing can be achieved. This discrimination must end.
Yes I agree but respectfully I believe you missed the part in the thread where I stated I have no choice. that's why I'm commenting in this forum.
Sorry ...I thought the only reason you would have no choice would be availability.If you can get Rogers can't you get Fido?
We get our internet from execulink .... I don't know if it is the cheapest but super people to deal with . But I don't know that they go out your way.
Rogers your question
"The reason that wireless Internet rates are more expensive is due to the availability of space: wireless bandwidth is much more limited at this time than cable bandwidth, so access to it comes at a premium rate. No one is able to offer wireless Internet at the same rates as hard-wired."
