Subject: They should be paying me

Quit your bitchin and listen to mine.

I signed up with the devil quite some time ago and have had this love/hate relationship with them ever since. I was willing to overlook the fact that the technician was an hr late and the fact that THEY ARE REQUIRED TO GIVE YOU A 40$ credit when they are and didnt, because the speed was at least twice as fast as dsl at the time.

Now only a short while ago they've axed the speed in half (and yet we are paying the same price..the hell?) and cried about people "Abusing the internet". They said people were downloading too many large files when before all this shit they launched all their propaganda about download this and that at blazing speeds and now complain when people do.

What the hell do they think the internet is for anyway?

Its not my fault freebsd is so many god damn cd's! I suppose I could have downloaded the floppy install in segments if I wanted to waste my time and about 1000 floppies' but I could have done that on Dial up ! What a bunch of
ignorant louts. The internet is there to be had and have it we shall!

But don't worry, they'll find a way to screw you with that as well.
A week ago, my also damned friend ,who happens to be a usenet whore, has been having his ip switched at random times confusing his cable modem and has to cycle the modem every fricken time (which is there answer to everything) ...I guess since the panzies don't like people downloading things they've decided on some interesting tactics.....

Recently, I emailed the head luser at tech support and had a question about the M.A.C binding to the cable modem and the dumb bastard sent me instructions on how to hook up a macintosh computer,.. can you fu**in believe that!

Why am I still on rogers you ask?, because bell has institued a download cap (what was the pupose of signing up with them for? To get webpages to load faster? give me a break.) ....and any other DSL company just isn't available in my area or isn't compatable with the phone line because of AML (added main line)
Id sign up with "Look" but would have to strap the dish to my ass and hang it out the window for it to work and would be arrested very soon after.
And just within the 1-2 days writing this, it seems im being routed thru a bunch of extra machines of theirs causing severe packet loss at biblical proportions, no doubt because of my download of a rather large service pack recently.....ugh....

Im damn gentlemen..... and just like people in prison, im going to have to take it with a smile.

Pray for me,

It’s very true what you say in regards to lowering speeds and download caps. It’s retarded actually. What these companies are saying is, "We would like to offer you access to the Internet for $X per month. However, that is only to access the Internet. If you’re actually going to use the Internet…well that’s a whole other bunch of charges."

It’s sort of like a bridge that becomes a toll bridge. They build the bridge so you can get from one side to the other, then they realize, hey, if you’re gonna use this freakin bridge we’re gonna charge you.

I hate ROGERS as well. I plan to switch my ISP soon thanks to the information from your website. Thank you. Comments

Can you say, "Music to my ears?" There you have it folks. The one thing I was after when I conceived the idea for this web site. All I wanted to know was that I could switch 1 person. Just 1. Then it will all be worthwhile. Keith, I thank you.

Subject: Rogers

I actually have two.

1) My mother had a roger's  pre paid plan for six month. after seven month, we callled in to cancel the phone. The operator was very interested on my mother's maiden name for some reason and I had to explain the difference between the maiden name and her married name for twenty minute. That wasn't so bad.  Month later, we got a bill from them and at first we though, well, must be the bills for the seventh month. Another Month later, we got another bill. So I called Roger's.

First they tell me that I have not cancelled the phone, and that they have no record of it. I got upset and I demanded that the phone bills from the past two month to be credited back to me. They told me that they could cancel and credit my next bill that was coming up, but they couldn't give my money back for past two month. Then of course, I started to argue, and for some strange reason, they were the one yelling at Me. I just hang up the phone

2) My friend had a Nokia phone from Rogers. Then for some reason, the phone started to freeze.  Apparently, some phones have glitch. So I got a photocopy of the original bills, and sent it to be fixed. Apparently the replacement phone is 30$ a month with 30$ deposit. Which I don't understand why  I had to pay for it since it was none of my fault that the phone is broken. That was not the end.... A week later, I got a phone call from Bobby....NOT to my hose, but to the voice mail of my BROKEN CELL PHONE~!!! What kind of IDIOT leaves a message on the voice mail of the cell phone that i sent it to be fixed???  Good thing that I check my voice mail on a regular basis~!!!!  That's not all.... when I went to the Rogers store to get my phone, they said that they don't have it. I asked...but i got a message, but  they don't have it. They refuse to listen to my voice mail. Apparently the guy who left the message wasn't there that day, so I went back couple of days later. When I got to talk to the lad, he said: " Oh, I'm sorry, I called the wrong number."  And he didn't even bother to call me back saying he got the wrong number. By the way, he's name is Bobby who works at the Rogers store on St-catherine in montreal. Comments

You see Ontario? ROGERS does not limit their policy of employing idiots to only our province. They have idiots working for them all over the country.

Rosa, I hope this can all end with you, your friend and your mother (by the way, what is her maiden name? just kidding) switching to a new service provider. If you haven’t yet, and believe me there are many alternatives, click on the link to find one in your area.

Subject: I am so glad

You don't know how much I HATE rogers all they do is rip people off and make excuses. I am always looking for an alternative but they are all expensive. Star Choice should make it easier for people to switch. Very few people have only one T.V. and it cost so much for the second receiver. Anyway I think this web site is great and I will forward it to everyone I know. Comments

Star Choice does have an alternative to different receivers for each television. However, it may not be that practical, but here it is anyways. If you don't have a problem with every TV in the house being on the same channel, they offer a UHF remote. All you need is one receiver and the UHF remote comes with a little antenna which plugs in to it. The signal from that receiver is run through your cable to all your TV sets and with the UHF remote you can change channels from anywhere in the house, no matter where you are in comparison to the receiver. The only thing is, ALL of your television sets are receiving the same signal from the one receiver so all the TV's are on the same channel.

Man, I dont know who you are, but u kick ass! Your website is genious and finally there's a place where we, the very UNSATISFIED Rogers customers, can go and bitch and rant and rave about this service. And I take comfort in the fact that they know this site exists, and very well hate it. FUCK YOU ROGERS!!!!!!  Eric in Brampton On. Comments

Who I am is no secret. My name is Adam Sherman and yes, I kick ass. But seriously Eric, don’t beat around the bush…what message do you have for ROGERS? Just kidding. I think a lot of people have the same sentiment. Nice touch with the exclamation points.
