Ever since 2 months or so ago, my internet has been dropping around 2am-3am EST and comes back very shortly. Called rogers and they say that's their regular maintenance hours and is normal. I live in the North York area, anyone experiencing this interruption every night around similar time?
How long does the Internet disconnect for and is it happening every single night?
Based on my experience, I would assume this is a localized issue that's unrelated to any kind of maintenance.

I'd contact both my condo management services and Rogers to no avail. The last Rogers rep that came told me nothing is wrong with the signal in the condo building and that this is a maintenance that happens every night. I never had this issue 2 months prior and now it's been like this every night.
I'm currently on an ignite internet plan, and its been pretty much perfect except for at night. At night, I usually do things like stream or be on a video call at around 10pm EST, and the internet (in the whole house) usually disconnects sometime around 2am, give or take a little. After that first disconnect, it always disconnects a couple more times afterwards, which is really annoying for streaming or for work calls. I've already had a technician come and replace the modem and coaxial cable, and I always reset the modem before starting stream. Any ideas on what could be fixed? Is it possible that streaming uses so much bandwidth that it could overload the modem and cause it to disconnect for a bit? (Not even sure if thats possible)
I appreciate your post, and welcome to our Community!
We have been working with @Frenchiebong on this anomaly you are reporting; hence, we merged your post here. More examples can help us with root cause identification.
Thanks for joining this thread and sharing your similar disconnection experience. We want to add your modem to our tracking list so the teams investigating this oddity have more examples. Kindly drop us a line in our private messaging box, @CommunityHelps. We detailed more info about our private messaging in this blog.
FYI, this happened to me too. In my case, Rogers upgraded the fibre node in my area. For the next few days after the cut-over, a maintenance crew would arrive in the middle of the night to do follow-on work and if they had to take the node down, it would happen at around 2:00 AM, and this would take the entire neighbourhood down -- or at least every customer that was connected through that node. (You'll see the gateway's status LED change colour / start flashing. It could even turn red if your service is completely down. See here for more info.) The downtime could be for a few seconds or it could be considerably longer.
Rogers should be able to tell you if the downtime was the due to maintenance work in your area or some other planned service outage.
I also live in the North York area, and I've been experiencing home internet disconnects and interruptions at the same time you specified. In fact, my internet just went down an hour ago at 03:10am and I was searching all over the internet using my phone data until I stumbled upon this thread.
When I first moved into the condo the internet was fine for the most part, no interruptions all the way. It was ever since around December last year that something had changed and the internet would get disconnected every night. Perhaps it is their maintenance times, I don't know. But do you seriously need a maintenance every damn day? This should really just be a weekly thing at most.
I am at the end of my rope here. I've suffered in silence for the past 5 months hoping something would change, but it just keeps happening. I tried calling in for support, but after waiting 50 minutes on the line I just gave up.
Every time this happens I wish I could go back to my old ISP FibreStream who were superior in every way possible - from the service to speeds to the uptime. But unfortunately Rogers had trapped my building's management into a 5-year bulk contract locking them in as the sole internet provider (as predatory as they are), so I'm going to have to live with it for another couple of years.
Please Rogers, do something about the interruptions. I am so tired of it.
Good morning @WalkOnWater!
Our maintenance window is between 2-6AM. If you're losing connection temporarily with consistency between those hours it's due to this maintenance window.
As a former night owl, I recognize that 12-4AM is prime gaming time. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
Welcome to the club! haha
I have been dealing with this since last May (2022) and I have had 5 equipment swaps to try to ensure that all my devices come back up when the 'maintenance' is over.
The issue that I have is that when it does happen, in some instances, my devices will come back on and some times, they will not. This is the frustrating part. This includes my doorbell camera for security; which is actually usually how I am notified that there was an outage. I used to have issues during the day, but these seem to have finally been resolved as I'm not loosing my network as often during the day anymore.
I don't have any solutions as I'm currently working with @RogersCorey and the rest of the team to try to isolate why it is happening, but hopefully there will be enough data collected to establish a pattern or something to see the why it is happening.
Ideally, I wish that they would simply have maintenance once in a while instead of every single day.
To me that's the frustrating part as well and at the same time, the limitation of connected devices.... we are at the mercy of the network!
Yes / No!
That's the easy answer that I have experienced, but basically their system does an update or check and combined with the fact that I had 40+ devices that needed to connect to my network, it would often overload, so I ended up getting my own router. Since I didn't have TV services, it's a straight forward plug into where the router was plugged in and called it a day! So far, over the last 2 weeks, I haven't been having any issues with my devices not reconnecting when the update finished.
Hope that helps!.
Thanks for contributing to this thread! 🙌 We're sorry to hear about the inconvenience this has caused. I know firsthand how imperative it is to ensure you have a consistent and stable Internet connection, dealing with connectivity drops can become rather frustrating.
If you're losing connection temporarily with consistency between those hours it's due to our maintenance window between 2AM-6AM. How long does the internet disconnect for?
