Rogers Portable Internet - Gone!
Reviewed on Friday March 2, 2012 by downloadalot, toronto
Since 2008 I have used the Rogers portable modem and found the internet connection slow but quite reliable. Although the speed was too slow for streaming, reading emails or light-graphics web surfing never had problems. I found a good spot near the windows and always had at least four (out of five) lights on the signal meter. I went with the 1.5 mbps data plan at first but the download speed was never higher than 50KB/sec. So I changed to the 0.5mbps plan. Speed was slow but the price was low. And I used it day and night. Unfortunately, Rogers said they would shut it down March 1, 2012 and offered us a free Rocket hub on a contract. I will miss this hard working, cheap and reliable slow poke.
4 stars for reliability!
