Rocket Hub vs Rural 25

Has anyone done a conversion from one of the Rocket Hub plans to the Rural 25 plans?  I am currently on the Rocket Hub and with work at home my bills are unspeakable.  Has anyone switched and can comment on the speed and availability comparisons?

It says they need to install an antennae, why would that be needed, assuming that the modem is not antennae enabled?  I run a router internally to support the house so not worried about wi-fi capabilities of the Rogers equipment.

Re: Rocket Hub vs Rural 25

Greetings @Doubtfire!

 

Welcome!

 

Hopefully someone in the Community can chime in for you on the speeds and their experience.

 

To answer your question with regards to WiFi coverage, the antennae attaches to our modem which provides WiFi in the home. As far as I'm aware, you should be able to bridge this modem to your router if you so choose.

 

That said, depending upon the age of your router, you might want to consider using the provided WiFi or upgrading your router to keep your connection optimal. Router technology has improved as of late!

Re: Rocket Hub vs Rural 25

@RogersCorey thanks, today the rocket hub antennae are built into the hub so no additional equipment is needed.  My router is a brand new Linksys and a requirement as I have a bunch of masking and rules in place to hide things from the outside world.

 

Still haven't heard from the community on speeds 😞  I don't want to convert unless it's actually meeting 25MB as today that's what I am consistently getting on the hub and I'm on a grandfathered rate plan which I would lose if I switched.
