Today I switched to Rogers’ newest service, ROGERS IGNITE 250u, why the all-caps is beyond me. That is unlimited usage tier, with 250mbps download, and 20mbps upload bandwidth. It is $69.99 for 3 months, then $95 after that. I was unable to use my existing retention discount of 25% in addition to the 3 month discount, but it worked out for me to use my retentions discount as it lasts longer.
Here are the details:
ROGERS IGNITE 250u
Speeds up to:
- 250Mbps DOWNLOAD
- 20Mbps UPLOAD
But I am actually receiving significantly more on the download end, at 320Mbps!
The service was not supposed to change until I picked up a new modem, but it ended up changing immediately, with the existing modem. It could simply be that I was once on their similar tier plan and my modem, Hitron CGN3, is able to support the provisioning.
I wanted to do a comparison with my existing modem before I go replace it, to see the differences. As it stands, I experience connectivity issues when there are a high number of connections and I suspect that the modem just can’t handle that many connections but it is able to process the high amount of bandwidth. Here is a look at the downstream/upstream data from the current modem.
|Port ID||Frequency (MHz)||Modulation||Signal strength (dBmV)||Signal noise ratio (dB)||Channel ID|
|Port ID||Frequency (MHz)||BandWidth||Modulation Type||Signal Strength (dBmV)||Channel ID|
Once I have the new modem setup, I will update with additional results.
