Angry Exceeded so called "bandwith" limit on Rogers



I got the dreaded voicemail from Rogers saying that my internet bandwidth usage is above acceptable limits and have 48 hrs to reduce it to a lower limit so as not to hinder network performance for others.

This is not acceptable to my $50 /month. So I plead:::Everybody please MAX your internet usage by downloading as much mp3s, movies, online games as much as possible!

support: www.IHATEROGERS.CA

Has anybody gotten this voicemail and called back and asked what is the acceptable limit per month? per day? Did you get cut off?

^^^ their excuse when that happens is always "oh... we're upgrading systems in your area" ... so then u technically don't want to get mad.. cuz they're doing u a favor. after they finish upgrading it seems to be slower everytime
