CHEATS!We were called to upgrade by paying just $3 extra per month. we did that. Since then, the internet stopped working. After repeated calling. there wasn't any progress. Now when I requested to go back to previous plan, they asked me to pay a higher rate to go with it. Horrible most home internet that I have used so far.

Rogers is one of the household names in Canada when it comes to internet services. Rogers has a very long history in providing telecommunication services. Rogers was founded back in 1967 in Ontario by Ted Rogers. Shortly after being founded Rogers acquired Canadian Cablesystems and became a public company. Ever since then Rogers gained massive success becoming a multi-billion dollar company, and provided service across the entire North American continent. Rogers boasts a very large employee force of over 10,000 and growing and their headquarters can be found at 333 Bloor Street East Toronto, Ontario M4W 1G9 Canada.
Rogers has a variety of high speed internet plans, and they do not target clientele that browses or downloads lightly. Gonevoip will review all Rogers Home Internet plans;
- Internet 5: 25 GB Usage, 5 Mbps Download, 1 Mbps Upload at $36.99 per month
- Rogers Ignite 30: 250 GB Usage, 30 Mbps Download, 5 Mbps Upload at $77.99 per month
- Rogers Ignite 60U: Unlimited Usage, 60 Mbps Download, 10 Mbps Upload at $95.66 per month
- Rogers Ignite 150U: Unlimited Usage, 150 Mbps Download, 15 Mbps Upload at $107.99 per month
- Rogers Ignite 500U: Unlimited Usage, 500 Mbps Download, 20 Mbps Upload at $127.99 per month
- Rogers Ignite GIGABIT: Unlimited Usage, 1 Gbps Download, 30 Mbps Upload at $152.99 per month
Focusing now on what Rogers calls Ignite 30 which provides users with a download speed of 30 Mbps and an upload speed of 5 Mbps. The usage limit is at 250 GBs per month. The total price for this plan costs $77.99 per month. In all honesty, this plan is way too pricey!. If we were to compare this plan to the 50 Mbps plan of Altima Telecom, which offers unlimited usage at a similar download speed or even higher we can assert that Rogers is charging way too much! The first three months ultimately save you $75.00 but that is quickly regained by Rogers due to the high pricing of their 30 mbps plan.
Furthermore, we noticed that Rogers does not offer an unlimited usage time with the Ignite 30 plan. This is very disappointing due to the fact that whilst using such a fast connection, a 250 GB limit just does not accommodate the customer properly. Also the overage charges Rogers implements are by far the greatest we have seen of any service provider at $3 per GB! Many prominent service providers charge a mere $0.25 per GB, and quite a few have gone all unlimited. Opting into Rogers service will also cost an initial fee of $64.95 which includes the installation and activation fees. Rogers does have typical price reductions for 3 or 6 months, but we have not accounted for those here as in the end, what matter is the final price.
Rogers home internet is very popular due to a perceived as high-quality though that is more of a myth than anything actual or factual. It is very common to see on internet facebook groups or other forums groups Rogers resales agents offering incredibly low offers; only to lure customers to sign-in and then let Rogers jack-up prices shortly thereafter. Due to the experience and time in the market, Rogers has managed to create a strong infrastructure which is the backbone of Rogers Internet and Wireless data network. However, it can be said without a doubt that if one opts into Rogers internet service, very likely would be paying more money than it had opted for an independent service provider.
