i have the rogers thing in my hands will post a picture
"What you can do with 95 GB:"
and they have a list, which i dunno, weird, like basically they are to me anyways, trying to make the user think 95 gigs is huge, and you could never
will take some pics and post them brb
ok they are turning out horrible with my webcam but here are 2 of the pamphlet/letter i got
as of april 3rd 2008 (effective) the bandwidth limits for rogers are in place
the first one is rogers and them "Keeing track of your usage"
WHAT ROGERS WILL DO:
you with online notifications when you're approaching the 75% limit of your designated usage allowance, and again when you've reached
you any additional usage charged for the first 3 months to help you determine if you have the right service level for your needs
you with 24/7 customer care and support, plus answers to your questions
that's what the pic says
and the other
What can you do with 95GB:
You could send and receive 9,961,472 e-mails in a month.
Your daughter could surf the Web and view 2,490,368 web pages in a month.
Your husband could play games online for 3,240 hours per month.
(only 744 hours in 31 days though so...dunno how he'd manage that lol)
this is part of the letter they sent
"With households doing more online every day - from downloading music to streaming movies to joining online communities - it's important to have an
Internet provider that evolves to meet your changing needs."
now is that a joke? because if they were evolving they'd lose the bandwidth limits so that people who do stream movies, and download wouldn't have
to worry, 95 gigs is 20 dvd movies, you don't have to search too hard to find disc images that are straight dvd rips
the worst part is rogers says "OR
Your family could download and watch 24 High Definition movies per month."
that's right, your family could, but a 14-18 year old HS kid with a dvd burner can do the same, then sell them to friends at school, they can also
burn xbox360 games, they were burning ps2 games last time i was into ps2, lets not even go into how huge this kid would be selling adult movies at
school they burn onto DVD, most popular kid in school i'd reckon
i mean they aren't really evolving with your internet needs at all, especially when they say "we realize the internet and what people do on the
internet are changing, we are gonna change with you" no....you're not, your going to impose a bandwidth limit and free up the speeds you have been
able to give since the day the internet over cable was invented but have been capping
BS by rogers and bell but they have monopolies so...in my years of dealing with bell i have talked to a few field tech guys, and you learn a lot about
bell and their internet when you can have a bit of tech banter with them then you ask "so why can't i be put on the remote server to get my speeds
up?" they say "you can just ask" sure enough you ask and there you are, getting the speeds you payed for, see bell used to say "Speeds of" then
have a listed speed on their webpage or any pamphlets or anything else of theirs with internet service, when you called their tech people to ask why
you weren't getting those speeds they would say "well it's speeds up to" and you could then refer them to www.bell.ca and direct them to the
internet page where it clearly stated "Speeds of" and they'd have to change their tune then, but eventually they changed their webpage so now you
can't really do much besides pay full price for 1/2 connection
