Rogers Communications has carried out its promised launch of 50Mbps/2Mbps (download/upload) residential cable broadband internet services under its premium ‘Ultimate High-Speed Internet’ brand. The faster service is supported by Rogers’ recent implementation of DOCSIS3.0 cable technology, which the operator’s rivals Shaw, Videotron and Cogeco have also rolled out. Available initially in selected areas of Greater Toronto, a 50Mbps monthly package costs CAD149.99 (USD135.75) a month with a usage cap of 175GB. Rogers’ second tier ‘Extreme Plus’ package has been upgraded at no additional cost to 25Mbps (download), from the existing limit of 10Mbps, with an increased volume allowance of 125GB per month.
