(Canada) Bandwidth Cap Limits Got you down? Check This!

by Skid Row Trash   //   9:24 PM on 04.22.2013

Hey everyone, first off, this is (I think) only for people in Canada.

I have been going over my bandwidth cap of 120 GB / month for the past few months, and sometimes it is about $50 extra on top of the bill when it's time to pay up. It sucks. I have recently been looking into upgrading my account.

Oh I should mention I use Rogers.

I was checking out their prices and packages.

Currently, I am on their Extreme Package.

Up to 35 Mbps download speed ---- Up to 3 Mbps upload speed ----- 120 GB monthly usage allowance.
for $64.99 / month

I was interested in their Extreme Plus package, it is as follows.

Up to 45 Mbps download speed ---- Up to 4 Mbps upload speed ----- 150 GB monthly usage allowance.
for $74.99 / month.

That sounded pretty good, a little faster, and 30 GB more a month for only 10 dollars more. I called them up to order, and just out of the blue I asked if there was anything else I could get..

There was actually, but it was not listed anywhere, but here it is people.
I stayed on my Extreme Package with current speeds, but for $10 more a month... I now have a bandwidth cap of 999,999 GB per month..

That's right! Just shy of a million gigs a month, for an extra 10 bucks! I couldn't believe it. Anyways, as this was such a shock to me, I thought I should mention it here. WIth bandwidth requirements constantly rising something like this might be worth it. With talk of PS4 Possibly streaming 4K video at 100GB/movie or more... yeah this is awesome. I know I am going to make a great use of it, (Apr 22, 204GB used so far). My speed is very fast too, and the extra bandwidth for that price is FAR more value than upgrading everything slightly.

You guys should give them a call and ask about it if you have problems going over your limits. I'm so happy right now!
