They've had several rounds of layoffs at TSC over the last few years. I suppose this is better than just shutting down the channel altogether.

Yep. People keep complaining but they won't cancel. People don't seem to realize that Rogers doesn't deal with things with urgency unless their churn starts becoming an issue.

Definitely can't be used as the technology is totally different and incompatible. Perhaps the rep was trying to sell a winback offer and did a poor job of explaining it.
