Speed increase?

I have been on Rogers Extreme for a number of years now, with a Motorola SB5100 Modem. Whenever I have tried Rogers SpeedCheck I have consistently gotten 10Mbps down, 1Mbps up. I assume there was a profile cap limiting my download speed.

Now, when I ran the tests this week I am consistently getting 17-18Mbps down and 1Mbps up. It seems like they have changed my profile.

Maybe Rogers is planning to raise the "Extreme" download speed?

No doubts in my mind that;

1. Speed increase was in response to Hell's Fibe offerings.

2. Reduced caps are related to the announcement. Robbers will do everything it can to kill this competitor, including raping us with overages.

It's all about the speed with Robbers ("Canada's fastest internet"), but they continually screw us with reduced caps and then sodomize us with abhorrent overage charges.

One thing's for sure: if TSI Cable is available when my Extreme contract's up (Nov), I'll be switching.

We live in a great country, but we're in the Dark Ages when it comes to telecom/internet/wireless services.
