I run a raspberry PI to monitor my traffic and control network traffic. It's free and 100 times more powerful then an app.
Monitoring isn't the issue in my opinion... The extreme cost and no options to scale a "Heavy use" data plan to something that actually allows us to use the internet as if we are in 2018... not 2008.
Unfortunately Networx doesn't provide an Android or Apple App for smartphones or tablets but it does give you the option of monitoring your router instead of one device.
It appears as though rogers is pricing itself out of the mobile internet market.
Alright then goodbye.
I am in the heavy flex plan and also reach or exceed 100gb often. I also have no reasonable alternative. I have spoken in depth with Rogers (in 2017) on higher than 100gb plans and was told it was a bandwidth issue with the towers. I can imagine the 10gb for $60 cell phone plans didn’t help matters. I was also told to keep checking for future changes to plans and alas 100gb has increased from $145 to $240. Not what I was hoping for.
I can only hope that 5G and wireless to the home (WTTH) are in the near future. Bell has already announced trials. Lets hope Rogers annouces something soon too.
For the last 12 months our family has stayed under 50 gb per month keeping our bills at $110 on the old heavy usage plan. One exception was a month when we used 53 gb and paid $145. An extra $35 for 3gb. Astonishing and deceptive since did not find out about the overage until it was too late. Too the point
In total for the 12 month period I paid $1320 (110×12) for 600gb(50×12). Had I lived in a city I could get the low end rogers ignite for $96 per month with unlimited usage. With that I could use 600gb without extra charges every month.
1320 for 600gb verses 96 for 600gb.
Just demonstrates how much more we pay for rural service. I am also betting we are such a small percentage of the market that giving us more bandwidth for less money would be marginal.
Nope! Instead they put the price up for new users. Hard to be a loyal customer when the loyalty only goes in one direction.
I pay 350 a month for Rogers Hub. I can't get regular internet where I am without spending money on building a higher tower on my house. It is gouging and taking advantage. Internet is a necessity when you work from home and I am dependent on internet for my livelihood.
Still here emptying my wallet monthly for an insanely expensive service.
Any updates on new plans that give users a fair $ per gb?
I am also constantly on the hunt for ways to save a little extra money. I know how fast costs can add up, especially when it comes to using mobile internet!
I'm afraid there hasn't been much change to the plans that are available for Rocket Hub users and you can find the current options by clicking here. Feel free to check Rogers.com from time to time for any changes to the plans in the future.
As a way to help keep track of where you're at each billing period, you can login to your MyRogers account online or through the app to view your data usage.
With this being said, we really appreciate your feedback and will pass it along!!
