Rogers Rocket Stick / bad value for isp
The internet connectivity gadget - Rocket Stick is promoted as "special deal" of $30 for 1 Gig of activity. Claimed to be way over the normal documents download on e-mail attachments for example so that is all you would likely need. The next level is 3 Gig and that costs $60 plus bucks. They asked what I paid my isp for my service and at $36 they remarked see how much cheaper it would be on this special offer. Hey I will throw in 2 months free to see how much you really use of bandwidth. I checked with my isp and found I get approximately 70 Gig for my $36 which is on an ADSL connection.
I know my home system is a land line but still the 1 Gig for $30 seems a definite rip off. So like these Canadian telecoms to hook you in and then kill you with overage charges knowing the average joe is likely to pay it for lack knowledge and savy.
We get charged outrageous rates for telecom services in Canada and it is only because they can with so little competition and a sellers market.
