The way Rogers outlines these services is misleading. All customer should be aware they will NEVER come close to the advertised possible speeds in a coax world.
As stated above by @RogersCorey , this is false. Most Rogers customers get what they pay for or more (at the modem) (with a wired connection). The only people who may not get their full throughput would be those with Gigabit service or some sort of issue at their location/neighbourhood. Rogers has consistently been reviewed by customers and third parties for their internet and it meets or beats their stated throughput. RF coax is perfectly capable of speeds up to Gigabit.
I just had this installed yesterday as I recently noticed the prices had dropped plus they offered me 6 months free HBO/Crave and $100 off the installation fee. So I took the plunge and ordered 1 modem, 150 speed, and 3 boxes. I was very nervous to move from my Rogers 4k digital box and Coda modem as I have been reading bad Ignite TV reviews for almost a year. Especially on Superbowl Sunday! The install was about 90 minutes and although it's only been a day, all 3 boxes have been working great. My speed test comes in over 200 Mbps even though I pay for 150. As well my Google searches don't pull up store searches in London (3 hours away from where I live) anymore. That was really frustrating before.
All of our wifi devices in the basement (Xbox, phone, apple tv, smart tv, ignite box) work great. It will take some time for me to really trust wifi TV but so far I am happy with the picture quality and most of the features. If any ongoing issues come up I will be sure to post them!
I hope they resolve your picture quality problems but if they don't, Bell is pretty good. I had Fibe tv on 3 tv's a few years back. The only reason I switched back to Rogers was that the fastest internet speed in my area was only 50 Mbps (bad for gaming), the remote only controls the box and tv (no extra devices) and I could only record 2 shows at once on the PVR. So make sure you get timeshifting so you can record your favorite shows at a later time. Good luck!
Am on Ignite TV 150m, cell phone with 5g gets 202d/17u, 2.4 gets 104d/15u using my own netgear router...wired desktop gets same as 5g.
I would not expect wifi to get the same as wired, too many variables that can interfere with it.
No complaints here.
No complains here!!!
If, it is true, why would you complain?
However, as we would all like to partake, pls provide more ..
Can anyone confirm something for me?
I inquired about this service when Rogers was rolling it out and at that time, one of my questions was "If I was not satisfied with the service of Ignite TV, can I switch back to digital TV?" and I was told that I could not.
Is this accurate? Terrible risk to take if at all true........
@kgrosvold : AFAIK, what would happen if you wished to "switch back" to digital cable, is you'd not be able to get the (grandfathered) package you had previously (if applicable). You'd have to go for any of the current digital TV packages. You should confirm this with Rogers though.
I don't think Rogers are yet at the stage where they are forcing all "new" customers to go IPTV (IgniteTV), although that may happen at some point.
