So has anyone successfully got the $45 promo for Extreme + the $10 Unlimited internet? Rogers is telling me its not possible
I also got the 'not possible' answer from 2 retentions reps today.

Is this promo done? My credits were ending so I ended up getting Extreme 120gb for $50 before tax, rental included. They said they didn't have the 200gb for $45.

Couldn't sign up for this today. Got the same deal for 52.99/month instead. Should i call back?

On the other hand, i got one of those little flyers from a "rogers representative" today, who said he can get me the deal for $45. Are these people reliable?

only good for new customers or Rogers customers without internet yet. The best they will give you is 30% off services plus free modem for 1 year through retention.

Does anyone know if Rogers still throttles seeding? I had Rogers about 6 months ago and I couldn't upload torrents at more that 15-20kb/s .... As soon as I switched to TSI it was 120kb/s +

I haven't noticed throttling on seeding. I regularly seed at 50-100 kb/s, maybe more, I don't pay close attention to the upload speed though.

Rogers guy came in on the weekend and set it up. Pretty painless. Hitting maximum speeds when I'm sitting in the living room where the router is. Unfortunately, only hitting 20mbps in my room. Not the end of the world though, things are still much much faster than before.

I make more than what 95% of people in this site makes.
Try a six-figure salary that starts with a "3" (that would be annually)

Seriously- I TRIED to ignore him. KKF is like herpes, you keep scratching in an attempt to get temporary relief, but two weeks later he comes raging back more annoying and infuriating as ever.

If someone doesn't BT, what is another site one can download files from to get realistic download speeds. I'm on the Express deal, and I don't think I see the 3MB/sec speeds, but I know a lot of factors come into play (wireless connection, traffic, as fast as slowest chain, etc)....

I think downloads/updates from Microsoft are silly fast, but I don't see the download rate....

When I want to test actual speeds, I'll often find a few different Linux distros and get them all downloading at the same time,

BT is a horrible way to test throughput because of a number of factors. Depending on the number of connections you can oversaturate your own router, which will impact performance. Also many seeders will throttle their upload speeds. Find a few different sites to download large files is probably the best way. Usenet is a good method too.

What do you mean uploading still blows? Are you talking about seeding? What's your max seed rate?

that might be the reason why your upload "still blows".

Can Steve combine the $45/8-yr extreme plan with the $10 unlim. bandwidth promo?
