Rogers Just Screwed everyone over



just got off the phone with tech support and i asked them why they are choking P2P packets, turns out there doing it to be "FAIR to everyone on the Rogers network, if the board didnt 'REGULATE' the bandwith then it would stress the network". My response to that was "how is that fair for the people using rogers extreme? we paid extra for the modem so we dont get speeds like the rogers lite people do...if you guys keep choking the packets we should all keep the rogers Extreme modem and then just switch acount to Rogers lite", the guy said "thats possible but i cant do anything about it...if you would like you can e-mail the board at internetsupport@rci.rogers.com and have the issue addressed to them"

this is pissing me off...i cant download shit properly cuz i have to compensate for some fag with rogers lite...

dont complain too much man, my download maxes out at 200 kb/s because i have some strange setup where symatico routes my axcess directly to the U of T backbone, but somewhere along the way the speed is capped. fortunatly there's no BW limit, so a couple hundred gigs a month is AOK

Not everybody got 100gb limit.
Im still on 5mbit limit download and 60gb total bandwidth.

If you want 6mbit and 100gb, you should call rogers and switch, it will cost extra 2 bucks a month though. They are switching users to 6mit though, so some got switched to 6/100 accounts.
