My System Specs


I've been with rogers for a very long time as well. I'm not crazy about their service but they've treated me better then Bell (who really pissed me off one time when I moved and they kept billing me for 3 months after and said there was no way I could get out of it).

Anyway Rogers isn't perfect but they've been decent with me and I've got a pretty good deal now.

As for DOCSIS 3.0 You do need it and soon there is no ifs and's or but's!
-- You will have to get the modem from them as another poster commented they have their own modems now and won't even register a 3rd party modem on their network.

I will say I somewhat agree that users should have choices but you won't get that from Bell either a client of mine was being ripped off for years by them until I went over and fixed it 3 months ago.

(was paying 42.95+tax) for a 2GB CAP (yes 2GB DOWNLOAD CAP!) Their speeds were 3/512 I do believe.

Now they pay $32 and get 60GB CAP + an extra 40GB because I yelled pretty good that they were ripping this person off so bad) and get 12/1)

No companies are to nice anymore and they all want to have full control although I hear teksavvy and ancanac will allow you to use a choice of 3-4 different modems... But you usually have to buy from them I do believe.
