Amen to that WorldIRC. I left for Koodo and haven't had any text issues or call issues in the first week (granted it's just one week) but I was with Rogers for over 6 years and in that time I saw the network quality go from great, to good, to inconsistent.
Yes, I had to bite on the $500 ECF, but when text messages show up hours late, have random weird-*** timestamps (not phone related as I switched to 2 different phones during a 1 month span) that are inconsistent when the texts are actually received... that's just unacceptable. Also unacceptable was the number of dropped calls I experienced with Rogers. Not to mention the dropped calls WHILE ON 611 WITH ROGERS.
I wasn't paying >$70/mo for that kind of service. Reminds me of when I switched from Rogers Cable before they left BC. Had 3 months of dialup speeds before I got fed up and left for DSL. Always the same runaround, always the same nonsense about "we're working on improving our service" spouted to the customer.
Am I bitter? Possibly, but I wouldn't have reason to be if I just received a good, consistent service for what I was paying for.
