Default Rogers Offer Faster Internet Speeds For Free

The current "Lite" and "Express" packages have both given a speed boost for free effective on June 5th, 2009. The "Lite" package will go from 1 Mbps to 3 Mbps for $35.99 and the "Express" package will go from 7 Mbps to 10 Mbps for $46.99. The bandwidth's have sadly not been changed.

So current 10Mbps customers will get? Oh wait we got our upgrade, an increase in price for exactly the same service.

Didn't they make a speed upgrade a year ago? And I want more bandwidth instead. Rarely does one use over 5Mbps.

Sweet, now I'll be able to go over my 60GB cap even faster! I could hardly care less about speed at this point. I'd be much more happy with a bandwidth increase.

Mine seems to be working at the new speeds as well. Too bad I'm gonna hit my 60GB limit faster.

Ya that's not really fair in my mind they should upgrade us guys that have been paying for the 10mpbs service $54 a month as well. We are the ones that download fast but still have a cap of 90GB Kind ticks me off!

I agree they need to give more bandwidth cap space not more speed overall!
