Re: Rogers Ignite Gigabit Very... very Slow Speeds

Hello, @emodz


Welcome to the Rogers Community Forums!


I can imagine how disappointing it is to only get a fraction of the speeds you are supposed to be getting for your internet service. This is definitely not the experienced we have envisioned for you.


We'd like to help you resolve your speed issues and improve your experience. We'll need a bit more information to better assist you.


  • Are you connecting via Ethernet or Wi-Fi when the speed tests were done? If Ethernet can you confirm the rating of your Ethernet cable? If Wi-Fi, are you mainly using 2.4G or 5G Wi-Fi?
  • Do you notice slow speeds on all of your devices tested? How many devices are connected to the internet on average?
  • Are you connecting to the Rogers Gateway Modem or are you using your own router?

We look forward to your response!

Re: Rogers Ignite Gigabit Very... very Slow Speeds

Ethernet direct to the rogers gateway modem with cat 7 cable. I used to get pretty consistent gigabit even on speed tests before but this year it is not the case. I tried another speed test today from and also using the speed test on rogers page and both show around 130mb/s with an upload of only 3. Also the ping has very high consistent jitter of around 40ms. Not sure what has changed this year as prior it was always running just fine.


Hopefully we can get this issue resolved! If gigabit service isn't possible right now then there's no point in paying for it.  I'll gladly switch my plan to a cheaper 100mbit if that's all I can reasonably get.

Re: Rogers Ignite Gigabit Very... very Slow Speeds

Hello again, @emodz 


Thanks so much for providing us with that info!


We'd like to take a closer look at this for you and run some tests on your equipment to see if there are any signal issues affecting your line or in your area that could be causing the poor speeds.

Re: Rogers Ignite Gigabit Very... very Slow Speeds

I have the same problem as @mscottr. I upgraded to 1GB from 150MB but an receiving nothing close to the advertised speed. Below is the chart of my tests and Docsis printout. Any assistance would be appreciated.

Re: Rogers Ignite Gigabit Very... very Slow Speeds

We have been on Ignite Gigabit since January 2, 2020 and have yet to see download speeds above 500 (usually much lower).  Sometimes our ping time to Discord or League of Legends is abysmal - almost unusable.  Our Zoom calls regularly get dropped due to poor connectivity.  Have been on the phone and in numerous chats with Rogers service, but so far no progress.


Please help!

Re: Rogers Ignite Gigabit Very... very Slow Speeds

Hello, @sesinger & @gbowering.


Welcome to Rogers Community Forums, and I hope you all are staying well and safe!


Thank you for posting your speed issue and the signal levels in the Community. 


@sesinger - Before upgrading to 1 Gbps package, were you getting full speed on 150 Mbps package? Are you testing the speed on a wired connection? Have you tried testing the speed on multiple devices both wired and wireless?


@gbowering - It's disappointing that numerous contacts with us haven't resulted in a resolution. Do you have an open ticket for this issue?


We can further run a few tests for you both, please feel free to send us a private message at @CommunityHelps. You can find details about our private messaging in this blog

Re: Rogers Ignite Gigabit Very... very Slow Speeds

My kids were complaining about latency during gaming, which is why we upgraded to gigabit in the first place. I though we might need a bigger pipeline. Since we switched At the beginning of January our speed has remained consistently bad. I just ran a test and got 67.93 Mbps down and only 1.70 up.
Definitely a serious discrepancy between what we are paying for and what we are getting.

Re: Rogers Ignite Gigabit Very... very Slow Speeds

Rogers has been the worst for this. Internet keeps dropping connection, have to reset the modem multiple times a week just to maintain a stable connection. Speeds barely break 100 mbps download. There is no excuse, I have had Bell in the same building and unit and always got speeds of 800+ on their Gig connection (which I am completely fine with) and consistent connection. Only switched to Rogers for the promo but now it seems not to be worth it. I would rather pay the extra $ with Bell and receive the product I want.

Re: Rogers Ignite Gigabit Very... very Slow Speeds

After months of complaining, I did get manage to convince Rogers that there was a problem. We did have a technician run a new wire to the house and apparently Rogers installed another node in our neigbourhood. just recorded a download speed of 29 Mbps and an upload speed of 5.6

Sometimes we get close to what we are paying for, but it's very, very rare.


Believe me, if I could get Bell gigabit in my neigbourhood, I would leave Rogers and never look back.

Re: Rogers Ignite Gigabit Very... very Slow Speeds

same issue here... I was on phone with a tech he said he was getting 1gb... my tests WIRED are getting max 30mbs.  are we getting ripped-off
