Rogers Upload Increase

Looks like Rogers has filed increased speeds for the TPIAs.

Wonder how Rogers is going to do that when it can't provide the advertised (read contract) speeds for its own customers.  Here's the latest example from yesterday:

Rogers has been talking about wanting to offer 150 Mbps Upstream for quite a while... but they can't do it with only 4 bonded upstream QAM channels.  They need to implement mid-split and finally get a (D3.1) upstream OFDMA channel carrying traffic.

 

Per Telecom Decision CRTC 2021-385 , Rogers is apparently also planning to kick all of the old DOCSIS 3.0 modems off their network on December 31, 2023, paving the way for a DOCSIS 3.1 / DOCSIS 4.0 network that can support even higher upload and download speeds.

To be honest, I don't know what to make of this.  For those affected, I would love to know what's going on from a low-level networking perspective.

Something must be in the works. I'm currently seeing upload speeds at 182mbps on the 1.5gb Ignite Internet. I've restarted a couple times and keep getting the same speed. Maybe for Christmas Rogers is giving what everyone finally wants.....faster uploads

Not in my area, at least not yet.

@AccordXTC : As areas are upgraded, the available upload speeds also increase. There are several posts on this topic over the past year and if an area is upgraded, then the typical upload is 150 Mbps (or a bit more).

 

If you go to the following link and "Check Availability" it should show the options for your location and you may get the 2.5 or even 8 Gbps option for download with the higher upload speeds also shown.  My area is still limited to 1.5/50.

@57 thanks but I was just simply stating what I've been now seeing. Nothing more or less. Hopefully everyone else sees some faster speeds 😁
