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

What kind of ordeal is it to switch from digital to ignite? Is it as simple as picking up new equipment from the Roger's store?
With all of the internet outages and slowdowns I can only assume Roger's is working on something within their network, possibly docsis 3.1 upstream.

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

@soundwave80 nope, this is a custom install.  You can't just walk into a Rogers store and pickup the equipment.  Too bad as those individuals with a technical background and stable internet service could most likely install the Ignite equipment without any problems, and possibly do a better job at it.  

 

If you're having issues with your current service, switching to Ignite won't do you any favours.  If anything it will just make the situation worse than it already is.  You really need to pester tech support to see that the problems are resolved.  Put them on speed dial and don't hesitate to use it, multiple times per day if necessary.

I don't think there's an ETA for OFDMA, we can forget it for this year and maybe we have a chance for Late 2020.

@RogersIan 

 

It will be a year soon (  2.0.10.36T6 (October 23, 2018)) since we received the last firmware update for the CODA.

 

Are you still working on new firmware or 2.0.10.36T6 is the final version?

Hopefully it will be the final firmware and they will give all customers a modem with the Broadcom chipset.

@Square

 

Indeed this thread died quickly after Dave left, now nobody from Rogers are answering for the past 6 months.

 

not sure why they don't lock this thread.

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

 

Good news, the time has come for what many of us have been waiting for!!
 
We have new CODA-4582 firmware which we will be rolling out to our community members this week.
 
This version of firmware, 7.1.1.21 has a new Intel SDK which allows support for OFDMA.
We have also begun OFDMA field trials. Now before you ask, sorry I do not have a date for rollout across the network.
 
I know this has been a long time coming and I appreciate everyone sticking around.
Thank you and we look forward to your feedback,
RogersIan
