    I'm contacting Rogers now, I have not been happy with TekSavvy raising their rates, getting rid of zap the cap, and throttling. I'm paying $57.95 for 30/5 and 400gb cap so if Rogers is truly giving 100/10 unlimited for only 7 bucks more this is a friggin no brainer.

    Been speed testing all evening and just got home and did a test. I have consistently been getting over 100 down always in the ballpark of 130 which is better than advertised and I'm pleased. The promo is on their website http://www.rogers.com/consumer/internet/promotions

    Edit: The modem they gave me at the Rogers store was a Hitron CGN3ACSMR but I know they have others like the Hitron CGN3 or Hitron CGN3ACR. I've read conflicting reports which is better and most problems seem to be with the modems in gateway mode, I use bridge mode with an external enterprise router and haven't noticed anything amiss. The IP address for the modem also changes when in bridge mode from 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.100.1. Rogers has a guide to setup bridge mode if you use an external wifi router so you're not double NAT'n. Also the RJ45 from the modem to the router must use the top most port on the modem. Should look the images from this blog post http://www.wegotserved.com/2015/03/22/how-to-bridge-and-replace-your-cable-operators-routermodem/

    I signed up this afternoon on IM with them. The chat guy said I needed a tech install ($45 instead of $10), I will be calling tonight to make sure that's valid because I'm already on Teksavvy cable which is on Rogers.

    Promo ends tomorrow, and Shomi is free for the entire time you have their 100mb internet.

    I had a Rogers technician at my house last Thursday to fix a line problem while I was still with TekSavvy which is why I requested their $10 self install because they didn't need a tech to check the line for problems, otherwise I probably would've stuck with the $45 basic install by a tech. I needed and now have 2 filters on the line before the modem to fix an interference issue. But if a basic tech install means to come and disconnect a coax cable from the old TekSavvy cable modem and connect it to a new Rogers cable modem without checking the line status then $10 self install is the way to go.

    Edit: Also good to know that Shomi is free for all on the promo which makes the deal even sweeter.

    What was the most odd about ordering was I wasn't sent an email even though I was asked for an email address over the phone, so I was wondering how to login to the MyRogers portal but I noticed a registration button as well and used it and and that's when I was asked for my 12 digit order number I wrote down which linked my email to the account. Once in MyRogers you click on the Shomi button under services and you can enable your access via your MyRogers account. I think I was told that it may take 24 hrs to link the MyRogers account with Shomi but I'm certain I was test watching within minutes. I still haven't figured out how to enable automatic billing to my CC from MyRogers portal though. Maybe the entire activation gets done if you plug in the Rogers USB key that comes with the modem but I've never bothered to see what's on it.

    I called back on my drive home, they confirmed the tech is needed as they don't show their filters on the hardware in my building. Unfortunately there's been no Rogers on my particular switch for a long time so it's outdated and apparently the Teksavvy one isn't the same.
