To meet Canadians’ growing demand for enhanced internet experiences and as part of a commitment to bring the best possible experience to customers, Rogers Communications is upgrading two of its most popular high speed internet plans with faster download speeds and higher monthly data allowances including:

  • Express: download speeds will increase from up to 12 Mbps to up to 18 Mbps and data allowance will increase from 60 GB to 70 GB.
  • Extreme: download speeds will increase from up to 24 Mbps to up to 28 Mbps and data allowance will increase from 100 GB to 120 GB.

These enhancements are built on significant product enhancements from August 2011 and apply to customers utilizing Rogers DOCSIS 3.0 capabilities. Rogers will start rolling out the faster speeds to existing Express tier customers currently receiving download speeds of up to 12 Mbps starting January 26th and will continue over the following weeks. New customers will experience faster speeds beginning February 21st. All new and existing customers will benefit from higher data allowances starting March 8th.

“Rogers customers are increasingly watching movies on Rogers on Demand Online, working from home and using multiple devices like tablets and laptops connected by Wi-Fi to the internet,” said John Boynton, Executive Vice-President and Chief Marketing Officer, Rogers Communications. “The ways Canadians are using the internet are changing dramatically and we are constantly reviewing our plans and policies to ensure they deliver the best possible customer experience that lines up with evolving needs and usage patterns.”
