Downloads were always choppy as in download ... pause ... download ... pause .. download ...

That was downloading any files from anywhere. It was downloading in short (5 second) bursts, then hanging for 3 seconds. And it was never anywhere close to max speed. As soon as I switched back to Bell Fibe the issue went away. Rogers infrastructure sucks.
Yea, it is highly dependent on your local area; you really need to check your modem's signal levels and get Rogers to correct any issues. I'm just outside of Moncton and my speeds are great (on 500u and get 600 down/22 up). My parents live 2 blocks away and their speeds were all over the place; their signal levels were terrible due to a bad coax coming into the house.

Called in - and was offered $49.99/month for ignite 500 - declined but will probably call back to get this deal if I can't get it for $24.99.. or I'll just stay with CIK
Rogers chat - offered $74.99/month plus $50 for installation
Awaiting fb chat response..

Just called and was able to get the 500u plan for $34.99 in Ottawa. I told that I have a friend who got the plan for $24.99 and asked why I couldn't get the same deal, representative told me that this was an old deal that ended and this one just started, but the best price he could offer was $34.99...

Well I'm happy with it, let's see if Rogers has a decent service on my place, never used them before...

I haven't used Rogers yet but have seen very rare people appreciating the services. Customer care is worst . The way they talk is like entire Telecom industry is owned by them.

At least other service providers have courtesy.

just tried and no luck.. called sales and then got transferred to customer care. They wanted to tell me about other offers but said I wasn't interested. Both reps hadn't heard of the promo

guys i think im getting this on FB chat right now!
do FB chat! way better the rogers.com chat

they need your postal code and if it qualifies u get this offer , plain and simple
setting up now! i hope i get the same speeds, this will save me 17$ per month

i can't imagine the rest of peeps getting ripped internet for like $100+ from robbers while getting 100u? lol

so im on 500u profile now and my speeds are faster lol! i got 405 and 33 speedtest didn't really need the gigabit profile
now the waiting game: when will they jack up the prices? prolly in jan2019 goes up like 5-10 bucks

Spent time with Rogers rep called Scott for an hour over online chat.Told to ask my residential building Rogers rep to see if this is possible.He said he doesn't access to this info and this $25 deal is a local thing,not online deal!

Does anyone experience unstable WiFi speed with this gigabyte modem? I've had it since the last promo and my connection isn't always consistent. Any inputs is appreciated.
