The new Rocket™ Wi-Fi Modem features AC is part of the fastest Wi-Fi technology in the world. Things this great is both popular and well received by everyone. With the popularity of ROGERS IGNITE, there has been a greater than expected demand for our new Rocket Wi-Fi modem. The new modem is compatible with our Hybrid Fibre tiers or the older internet rate card (i.e. Express, Extreme, Extreme Plus, etc.). As this was talked about on our forums lately (read about it here), we’d like to dedicate today’s blog post to give everyone an update on the situation and information to differentiate a few things!
To all existing customers who are migrating to one of the ROGERS IGNITE Internet tiers, rest assured we will be providing the Advanced Wi-Fi modem if you don't already have one until our inventory levels of the Rocket modem improve. We’d like to inform everyone that the Advanced Wi-Fi modem is equally capable of providing the ROGERS IGNITE speeds.
If you are not using any AC compatible devices, there is no need to make the switch as you will not be able to benefit the AC Wi-Fi Technology. Only those using an older Wi-Fi Modem would need to swap it to use ROGERS IGNITE packages or bundles.
We have also included the following chart to help everyone understand it an a glance:
Rocket ™ Modem
Advanced Wi-Fi Modem
Keep Existing Modem
Legacy to ROGERS IGNITE – with Advanced Wi-Fi Modem
Legacy to ROGERS IGNITE – with Standard Wi-Fi Modem or older
Hope this helps figuring which modem is best for your usage and do stay tuned for more!
