Sent this letter to Rogers, don’t expect a reply, but thought it worth posting here .as well ..
I have just discovered your Internet 25 plan whereby people can get 450GB/month for a mere $70. I live three hours north of Toronto; the only plan available to me is 7GB/month for pretty much the same $70 ($60, actually). I pay $20 for every additional 10GB, which is to say I’d pay almost $1000 for the same 450GB. Not only that, my 7GB comes at a snail’s pace of 0.1-2.4mbps, compared to, probably, something closer to 50mbps.
I understand the difference in speed; I access through space, not fibre. And I understand that due to the low population density where I live, fibre’s not gonna happen. (Pity you can’t piggyback on the electrical or phone lines that already exist.)
What I don’t understand is the difference in GBage. It doesn’t cost you any more whether I get/use 7GB or 100GB, does it? The tower is the same; you don’t pay for more air for the GB to travel through.
So, could you please explain the rationale for this gross inequality of service?
