Buddy....such a beutifull site. You should get some subway posters up or something in the subway or on TTC busses because so many people would back you on this site.

Rogers is a stinkin rip off.

Their motto "Charge more and get less".  I like the "other" peoples motto, I think Starchoice, "Get more for less money"

Nice job! 

Scott C. Comments

That’s right Scott ROGERS is a "stinkin rip off". But you forgot a key point, they are also run by talking monkeys. I can tell you from my own personal experience that I subscribe to Starchoice and I’ve never been happier.

I heard you this a.m on Mojo radio.

I've lived in Peterborough for 5 years so I have not had to deal with those idiots in awhile!

We deal with Cogeco Cable and I'm beginning to suspect that they may be related.......

I love the site and will definitly pass it on!!

Mary Comments

Mary, thank you for your support. I really hope you do pass on the site to everyone in your e-mail address book and tell everyone you know. If enough people become aware of the alternatives and choose one over ROGERS, maybe they’ll get the point. Or even better, maybe ROGERS will offer me $1,000,000 for this stinkin’ web site. If that happens, please watch for my next site…Ifreakin’

Dude...great call to MOJO this AM ... enjoyed it thoroughly....I am so surprised that Rogers actually bought up all of the rogerssucks/ihaterogers about an insecure business entity!

BTW...regarding ISPs...check   Great links there to various highspeed alternatives! 


Jay Comments

Jay, I was stunned when I saw ROGERS owned "", "", "", "", "" & "". Yet, I was dumbfounded when I discovered that, they did NOT own the Domain Name extension for the country they provide service in, which is ".ca". That is typical ROGERS stupidity & thanks for the link.

I certainly have a rant, I am only 15 years of age, and I am stressed out because of rogers Cable Inc. First of all, we moved to a new house, I previously had simpatico HSE and was very happy with it, but when I moved, sadly it wasn’t available, so I had to turn to cable *shudders*. The house was newly renovated etc, it had no cable in it, no cable running from the main etc. We told the techs that on the phone when we first call to order the cable/internet service, they said ok, I ordered it in my name first, and the lady said she would put it through, and everything was ok, and she had to wait to see if cable was available in my area, and would take 24 hours and, I would get a call back.

After about 5 days, I called back, they said that there was no account registered under that name and there was no inquiry on the service availability in my area, I was like shit, you idiots wasted my time, and then the guy put through the order if service again, this time in my mom’s name and said service was available and everything is set and yet they still sent out some idiot 5 days after that said he couldn’t do the installation because there was no cable coming in from the main, and he couldn’t possibly do it him self. Someone else would have to come, then 5 days after, another tech comes, and does inside cabling, and says to my mom and I that, "you guys are all set to get cable now", And I said, but there isn’t any cable running from the outside, he said someone else has to come out again, to run the cable. Then another tech comes out about 5 days after and says "I can’t run the cable from the main because you are more than 5 KM, away from the node green box)."

My mom and I went ballistic. What were we going to do? The guy said, well they would have to use a special cable, because it wouldn’t make any sense, and I’m left with a cable modem, that’s offline, and no television. Then about a week later, at around 7 pm, said they came to run the special cable, took about 20 minutes (they were on the street from before, for about an hour) for them to fix it up, and everything. And then bam, the television worked, and I plugged the cable modem in, and it was flashing, and he said wait a while for it to work, and he left. The modem wouldn’t go online, so I called them and asked why, they said the modem had been provisioned to two different servers, I WENT CRAZY, after weeks of waiting for this shitty service, and going through all this crap, I was out of internet from before, and still am out of internet.

Anyways she said it would take approximately 72 hours, 72 hours started to turn into 7 days, then 10 days, and then after I knew it, I had been waiting for a month. Then finally one day it was online, and to my surprise the speeds were shitty, the upload was higher than the download, I was being disconnected from the internet, it was a terrible experience, since then it’s not possible to count the amount of rogers technicians that have been out to my house, the digital cable levels are always too high or too low, I have had my modem replaced 3 times, I pay for the bill out of my $100 dollars pay, since I use the crap, honestly, it’s a waste of money to go to rogers, they really screw you over.

Thank you for your time.

A very unhappy rogers customer.

P.S stay away from rogers, if you want to have a peaceful life. Comments

Junior, you’re 15? Couldn’t the way ROGERS treated you be construed as "child abuse"? ROGERS gave you the old lie and deny tactic they’re famous for. Our Internet Alternatives section is almost complete, so keep checking back and hopefully we can find you something to meet your needs — other than ROGERS, those dirty rat bastards.

You have a great site and you are preforming a great and important service to mankind.

One of the reasons why people are reluctant to change their internet service is because of the hassle in letting everybody know your new address. My solution to that was to go out and register a domain name so tha my e-mail address stays the same with any company. This may be something you want to suggest to visitors to your site.

Mike C. Comments

Good point Mike. Only I don’t have to point it out, now that you did. Although technically this isn’t much of a rant, anyone who commends this site as, a "great and important service to mankind", must have had some beef with ROGERS at some time.
