Check out my Speedtest result which is almost full speed https://www.speedtest.net/my-result/a/5822643120
Many of us got emails 2-3 weeks back about the increase. I have a couple family members who are on the rfd $35 plan who didn't get the email yet. If you just got yours maybe they will get thier email soon.

Who else is experiencing really slow speeds? I'm only getting speed tests of 7.8Mbps on a 75Mpb line. Not able to stream video without buffering.

From Carrytel's site:

Reported on: March 22, 2020
Network: All of the Network
Location impacted: ON & QC
Symptoms: As due to the coronavirus pandemic makes more people work from home and stream TV shows. Some customers may experience slow speed issue during the peak hour (8:30PM-10:30PM) because of the dramatic increase in usage consumption. Carrytel has sent several urgent upgrade requests to the Primary Providers like Bell, Rogers, Videotron and Cogeco. We are doing our best to upgrade our bandwidth, please be patient and allow us some time to finish the upgrade.
Estimated time of repair: 3 weeks

Even during non-peak hours (WFH hours).
It's like 30/1. I'm on the 100/10 plan. With Crazy ping spikes and connection flapping.

Just wanna pop in and mention that the 30/1 also affected Teksavvy around that time, so it was likely the full Rogers network (or at least resale). I think they're trying to throttle due to extra demand, because it would be full speeds during non-peak hours.

I can tell you that I work for an online security biz, and we've noticed many ISP's throttling UDP traffic in particular due to the increase in traffic during the quarantine. It might have eased up now a bit as they've likely increased capacity to compensate.
