Re: FEEDBACK - Rogers Rocket Wi-Fi Modem Firmware Trial

It’s time to move on from Rogers it’s been nothing but issues all they do is come up with these modems and force us to upgrade and then come on here and complain and test beta firmwares that don’t work it’s been like this for 3-4 years ... it’s time to move to other providers there are other smaller providers that allow us to use Stand alone modems that work with no puma 6/ 7 issues .. end of the year I’m canceling all my Rogers account ..

Re: FEEDBACK - Rogers Rocket Wi-Fi Modem Firmware Trial

Hello,

 

I upgraded my internet plan from 60 to 500.  Which speedtest is most accurate?, the web based ones or I have a program installed on Windows.  I'm asking cause the web based are giving readings in the 300s while the windows version I get 500+.   Thank you.

I heard that Rogers started to roll FTTC in some areas, can we guess that we're getting closer to a FTTH rollout in a couple years perhaps?

Well if Rogers wanted to roll out FTTH a couple years after they implemented FTTC, it wouldn't make sense; they would have just opted to do FTTH now, instead of FTTC.

 

With their FTTC approach, they are future-proofing their network for Full Duplex (FDX) DOCSIS. The standard specifies a maximum of 10Gbps symmetrical, and those kind of speeds are not possible with existing infrastructure. FDX  DOCSIS needs higher modulation orders in order to reach speeds of 10Gbps, which also requires the need for higher signal-to-noise ratios (SNR), and much less noise. All of that can be possible if Rogers pushes fiber closer to the home through their FTTC approach. This could also mean that Rogers could be looking to implement remote-phy. 

 

As to why Rogers is upgrading specific neighborhoods with FTTC could be due the high bandwidth needs of neighborhood. Neighborhoods that have been already physically node-splitted by building a second node in the neighborhood, and would need another node split due to congestion, would be the first to receive this treatment.  This is what Rogers is referring to when they meant to push fibre deeper on a "case by case scenario" in their investor releases.

What @jszentir described sounds similar to what I just posted about as well.

I'll try switching mine back to mixed mode and see how that goes.

Re: FEEDBACK - Rogers Rocket Wi-Fi Modem Firmware Trial

I seem to be having an ongoing issue in bridge mode with the CODA 4582 2A, firmware 36T6.  Every couple of weeks my download speed will drop to 20 (on a gigabit plan) and the only thing that will fix it is to reset the modem to factory defaults.

What's the plan for 2019? is Rogers going Remote Phy?

apparently there won't be much changes in 2019 lol

Currently Fiber is just used more as a marketing tool.....rather than effective technology use by both Bell and Rogers.

Rogers now markets Ultimate Fibre....as 350down and 350up for $225/month..... So is this FTTC ...since they sure don't have FTTH... ..Are they serious?  Appears Rogers has a Hybrid Fibre and an Ignite Coax option...REALLY?? Smiley Surprised

Been a member of this forum for 2 years and on Ignite Gigabit plan....Like many others worked through the trials with RogersDave to average 1Gb speeds but occasionally on good days maybe 700 with mostly an average of 400.  Sure Fiber is the future but right now.....it's mostly talk and we cannot get consistent speeds while paying dearly for all the hype. We need more competition  in Canada and for both Rogers and Bell to limit their marketing rhetoric and start delivering what we are paying for.  It's really pathetic how we are played and made to believe that the CRTC is helping us.  Smiley Frustrated

OP was mistaken and thought it was FTTC, but instead they replaced the existing coax with new coax. They also relieved any sort of congestion experienced by adding 4-5 new nodes, as well as another 4-5 new nodes in the other end of OP's neighbourhood. 

 

I agree with you that internet prices are too expensive, and we do need competition to lower prices but with so little competition there's not really much we can do than bargain for better deals like the $35 500u going around right now.

 

Have you ever talked to customer support about congestion in your neighborhood? Maybe they could give you some insight if your neighbourhood is slated to be upgraded like the one above.
