Don't forget the transfer cap of 100gigs and a charge of $1.25 for each gig over that.
I believe those where the most recent numbers I heard.

I don't use Rogers but I've read they also throttle BT/P2P traffic when possible as well.

Seems like a nice business plan, up speed to a point few can reach, and charge them more. :)

My friend in sweden pays $50 a month for 100 Mbit, why are we cheering for 18? Hell, for $60 I get 12 Mbit, and we have yet to get capped :p

Yeah, it's really sad how far behind the US is wrt a internet connection for all, and speed at which all can connect.

Videotron introduced 20Mbps last year, for less.

N. America has garbage speeds compared to our friends living in oyro-land.
