my wife being totally amazing and a digital junkie got us the premium rogers ignite internet service. after i got the new rocket modem from the Rogers folks things have been crazy around here. i have been testing out the new service and i have had a hard time slowing it down. i am probably going to kill my laptop before i run out of bandwidth. i had youtube, Netflix and shomi streaming at once while i was on my phone downloading stuff off of box. com. it is crazy. the real test comes tonight when both of my daughters are on their tablets and my wife and i are on our laptops. but i think it will be fine. the download speed is a ridiculous 250 mbps which is crazy my laptop can’t even download fast enough to make that speed happen but it is the 15 mbps upload that makes the real difference. people forget about upload speed and this is the first time in 15 yrs that i had gotten that kind of upload speed.
the big deal is that back in the day you had download and upload speeds the same. you could blast away and there was a lot of piracy because there was no limit to upload speeds, but then the regulations came in and upload speeds dropped to a 3% of download to kill that market. but with upload speeds coming up we can finally get some real service. stay tuned for further updates.
