Whats the model? Maybe there's room for a half height card.

I spoke with them today. They told me that I have to switch my tv service to ignite tv, if I want to get the 1.5 Gigabit ignite internet. Can't keep my normal cable TV. Maybe they are lying, misinformed, or might be true. Really don't want ignite tv, especially since it's for my parents. They absolutely hate the idea of not being able to watch tv if the internet goes down (which it has gone down a few times just this month already) also sucks they force you to get home phone using internet, can't keep using the normal home phone.

Ya no expansion on the x300w, on the one from newegg its doable since you can put a gpu in it but maybe not worth it just for this.

I didn't have an available PCI slot so I went with this:
https://www.amazon.ca/Cable-Matters-202 ... 89&sr=8-13

Depending on which speedtest, anywhere from 1.5Gbps to 1.8Gbps download. Using a CAT6A cable plugged into the 2.5Gb port.

2nd rule of RFD! ➡READ the OP (Original Post), Thread Summary and the current part of thread!

If that home phone & cable TV matters the most, either stick to what you have if speed & fee seem OK, or take a closer look at other providers. :)

Do you have internet + two of mobile phone/cable tv/home phone/home security services with Rogers? If you do, then you should be entitled to 2 x $10 bundle discounts, no?

I'm on chat, but the person says for cancellations I have to call in. Is retentions available on Sundays or am I just dealing with regular call centre people? Is calling in better?

I have one cell phone, 1 other internet in another location and this one (previously had ignite TV). Maybe the first bill discounted $20 because of that? My new plan I dropped TV. Maybe I will call and check with them, if adding TV back and save money then I should do that. Thanks

One question from RFD user within this deal:

Cancelled my Rogers home internet service few month back when Bell came in with tempting $55/ month service for 24 months. Rogers didn't budge that time thinking I was bluffing. Spoke with an agent on provided phone by another user: 866-225-6772 yesterday. Was told that I am eligible for 1.5Gb internet service for $50/ month (tax included).

The caveat was that I was told the modem would not have any any pre-installed config, whatsoever, and I should install an app on my phone in order to config it myself!
Also, the agent told me that if I wanna have a tech install guy come in person, like previous times, there would be a whooping $150 charge that should be paid by me upfront. Unlike in the past, modem is without coaxial cable and I should provide one.

Didn't get the Rogers deal since I am with the Bell with better deal.. Anyone with the same experience? What app the agent was talking about?

Question for the group; I just did a speedtest on a PC connected to my Orbi mesh router, which is connected to the Rogers modem, and speeds were around 450Mbps. I have a realtek pcie gbe family controller on the PC, so am I limited in speeds in anyway?
I had a similar experience. Went from Fido 150mpbs, to Rogers 500, then to Rogers 1.5. My Fido speed was more consistent than rogers and my Roger 500 to 1.5 had no speed difference, was getting aroudn 100-200mpbs on my wireless devices. Roger's tech told me it was my Condo and the speed coming in was maxing out at around 600Mpbs. As much as I hate Bell, decided to go back and get Fibe 1.5, now I get speeds up to 700mpbs.

Wow, this actually worked out -

It's taken me days to get through with chat, but I finally got a rep today. Rep wouldn't budge and only offered me 50 off for $74.99, exactly what I'm paying now, for 1.5gbps instead of my current 1. I mentioned looking at other providers and they told me good luck lol.

Messaged back a couple of hours later to set a cancellation date, hoping that I'd get/make a winback call, but the rep I got this time was much more helpful. I mentioned that I was interested in Ignite TV (I like streaming OTA channels w/ the app). They offered me a $75 discount for 12 mos. for 1.5gbps + IgniteTV, so $54.99. Would have preferred 24 mos, but I was surprised threatening to cancel worked so quick. I'm in Mississauga near Heartland.

Will hopefully have more options by 2024.

Did anyone get a symmetrical upload and download speed with this 1.5 gigabit plan? I checked the Rogers website to see if I can receive the 1.5 gigabit plan at my address and the Rogers website says that I can with a download speed of up to 1.5 gigabit and a upload speed of up to 1.5 gigabit with a bullet point at the bottom of the speeds saying "Pure fibre to your home". Some of the users in this thread are claiming that they can only receive a maximum upload speed of 50 mbps on the 1.5 gigabit plan so this is what is making me confused.

You would need FTTH to get more than 50 Mbps upload speed. Even bell's 1.5 Gbps plan only gives 940 up.

I had a sales agent come to my door. Perhaps just call and see if it's available in your area.

I was just offered $49.99/mo for 12 months at 1.5Gbps after starting a chat and mentioning that I'd like to cancel the service. I didn't want to push it too far so I accepted.

Thanks OP.
