Usage Allowance: 300 GB, Price: $122.99 / month My ping has been extremely low since the switch over to the Casa CMTS. Speed: 175 Mbps down, 175 Mbps up How good the rogers service will be, will depends on how many are put on a node. Started 13 minutes ago I had a 25/10 (well, 25/7 in reality) DSL connection with Teksavvy over Bell lines and my latency was 17ms minimum and I'm in Toronto. So i'm looking to get a new internet plan and its come down to Bell Fibe 50 and a couple of Rogers plans, Ignite 150u and Ignite 500u. Price: $84.99 / month Speed: 100 Mbps down, 10 Mbps up Usage Allowance: 99999 GB. Usage Allowance: 250 GB, Price: $84.99 / month Performance between the two at the same speed will be fairly comparable. In my case I currently see an average ping time to the CMTS (the node beyond the modem) of 20 ms with varying ping times that can reach into the 200 to 300 ms range. Compare internet speed, bandwidth-caps, excess usage fees, modem rental vs purchasing, and even details like electronic vs. paper billing fees, to help make the most informed decision. It then went to 5000 with a top speed of 7000... Weirdest thing is losing internet for upwards to 5 minutes but the modem never disconnects and displays I have it... http://www.canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=27_1059_1060&item_id=090394, You need to be a member in order to leave a comment. No idea what Rogers is like, but with Bell I typically get download speed slightly above my speed (30 instead of 25), and usually below-expected upload (5-7 instead of 10). FTTN has a fibre backbone from their offices (or another major node), to a node in your neighbourhood. Bell Fibe or Rogers Ignite? Rogers can't come anywhere near that at the moment. Posted in General Discussion, Linus Media Group Posted in Graphics Cards, By It still may not come anywhere near what Bell can offer for latency, but it should improve. Usage Allowance: 20 GB, Price: $56.95 / month This last run of cables from the node to your house is often called "the last mile". I have no idea - I doubt it though.

What would be better? Posted in New Builds and Planning, By Usage Allowance: 99999 GB, Price: $43.95 / month As far as I know, Bell uses Fibre whereas Rogers uses cable. Bell Fibe might be much better than Rogers Docsis 3.0 will ever be. Posted in New Builds and Planning, By giber gpon is simmar but I just read that there is a 100gbps card available. 120ms to CS:GO that looks like whoever posted that has a crappy line. Fiber could knock off another 2ms. The service from Rogers should be better in most cases and offer faster speeds. I am currently on Bell Fibe 50 for $65/month, thinking of switching to Rogers for their current promotion (Rogers Ignite 250u for $75/month). IDK. We move into a house with werid 13+ years old but that got all fix right away. Rogers DOCSIS 3.0 (or higher) connections can offer speeds up to Gigabit download, with very low latency and otherwise fairly good performance. Bell typically uses VDSL (Probably VDSL2+ or some other variant) for their FTTN connections. Was reading into the fttp that most isp use. no. In all its just a less shitty form of DSL. Personally if you can tolerate the name try Virgin Mobiles home internet, It's owned by bell so unlike 3rd parties you wont get throttled (It's not allowed but they do it anyways), https://www.virginmobile.ca/en/internet/index.html. Most likely its just Fibre to your community switch. From the node, the rest of the connection is either a copper pair phone line (VDSL) or a coaxial cable line (DOCSIS 3.0 or higher). Seriously 5 fucking Megabits per second. Looks like it depends on the feeder card. I get about 5-8 ms now on the Rogers speed test server from the speedtest.net website. This has brought about a problem with latency between the modem and the connected Casa CMTS. It gets better once a week usually at night on the weekend. Rogers vs. Bell Internet . Kind of, DSL claims that your "connection" is dedicated, and never shared. Furthermore, if you haven't already, put your modem into "Modem only" mode, and buy a good quality third party router. So i'm looking to get a new internet plan and its come down to Bell Fibe 50 and a couple of Rogers plans, Ignite 150u and Ignite 500u. Gamers at Rogers aren't too happy at the present time.

Basically, if bell hates you you get eh speeds, if Bell loves you you get fiber to the door , where some of my family live they have both, old hook up and new.

That's true. I changed from Rogers to Bell Fibe mostly because I was paying but channels kept dropping out of my package.When I asked Rogers to do something and keep the cost as per the previous year since i had been with them when they were Shaw in Ontario ( almost 27 yrs) the gentleman said he could not.

Rogers also recalibrated the lines in my neck of the woods now my dbmv went up about 10 dbmv. I live in the US and we have whats call AT&T Uverse which is similar to Bell Fibre. There are a few different types: FTTH (Fibre to the Home)/FTTP (Fibre to the premises) - this is what we might call "true" fibre, in which a fibre connection is routed directly to your home - they often (but not always) are symmetrical (meaning upload and download speeds match), but that's by no means a requirement. Ultimately you're still affected either way, just Cable may be affected on a more local basis. At my old place, which was in an apartment complex, the best package from Bell was 50/10 - but Rogers still had them beat with 1000/50 there too (And Rogers had that package available about 4-5 years before Bell had anything beyond old ADSL speeds there).
