Yup, robbers has been doing this for as long as I've been with them.
Thank goodness I got the 8yr W35 plan and not have to worry about increases for now.

Canada, Eh!!
Was ready to leave last year but stayed since got ok deal and Rogers modem has 4 ethernet ports and can use more then one [eg. connect 1 ethernet port to your own router and one ethernet port to a gaming desktop, etc. Rogers modem in bridge]

Remember looking at cannet and carrytel I believe but there modems came with 1 ethernet port only.
Has that changed?

Any suggestions for other ISPs?

July 13, 2017 to October 25, 2018: BOC raised rates 5 times and MCAP raised its prime rate next day each time.

2020: BOC dropped rates 3 times and MCAP waited and waited to drop its prime rate to include all 3 drops.

Interesting, are you confirming that the robber's moden ethernet ports can still be used even through it's in bridge mode?
I have run out of ports on my router and looking at switches, but if I can utilize the modem's ethenet ports; I will be good for now.

Only port 1 on the gateway is active once the modem is bridged. Either you haven't bridged it properly or your modem is defective.

I've never seen such a huge jump in rate increase.. I've see 5$ dollars before 8$ is pushing it.

that is my one fear, that they will apply for new tariffs and play games with indies.

Peeps are getting confused. The base packages are getting hiked up by said amounts. It does not apply to fixed 12 or 24 mos plans or fixed price 12 or 24 mos combo plans (aka internet/cable/hf) deals already in effect. Besides Robbers has promos all the time. They increase the rate then offset by giving large discounts for 12/24 mos. Basically... sucks for peeps who want internet alone and not combo packages.

Bridged by logging into hitron. Once bridged no wifi ssids from hitron and have to use different ip address to log in. Once logged in the usual settings for wifi, etc. not there.

Done same way with 3 different Rogers' modems and all worked... Others have mentioned same but may have been on Rogers' forums, perhaps on RFD?? Heck, right now using port 2 and port 3!!

Vkizzle: Perhaps you could try? We're in GTA so not sure if region specific but I doubt it.

Hopefully this doesn't affect my $74.99 gigabit internet plan for 12 months deal that I signed up for last November.

That article is written by MobileSyrup, not the most credible source out there.
