heheh, enjoy it while it lasts. About 7 years ago when I first got cable, they left it uncapped for almost a year! I was getting upwards of 800kbytes/s downloads off of OC3 ftp sites

Mine's been that fast for about 2 weeks now.... since they were doing upgrades in the area (I asked the dude working outside wtf he was doing)

They also upped our upload cap from 20 kb/s to 45 kb/s....

So all this might last longer than you think

i've seen on a few places people saying their rogers speed went up. and i can confirm it too

but i also read that rogers is sending email and letter to people that use too much bandwith. and saying they will cut their connection if they don't stop using it that much

Do you know where in Canada he is? Rogers in Vancouver has different policies than Rogers in Ontario, Alberta, etc.... All I know is that if they were limiting bandwidth, I would have had my account killed a LONG time ago.

I dont really trade dvd's with other cable users.. takes too long to send (even with our new upload cap)..
