Rogers Portable Internet - Gone!

Reviewed on Friday March 2, 2012 by , 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!

Much better than dial up

Reviewed on Friday June 4, 2010 by , Caledon
It's a great thing for those who live out in the country. However, there are some drawbacks:
1. You have to find the area in your house where the signal is the strongest (facing the direction of the tower). This could lead to having wires running across your floor.
2. It is fairly reliable (except on windy days) It's almost unusable during this time. One must move the modem around to find a place to get a better signal.

Other than that, if you are sick of the slow dial up speeds, then consider changing to Rogers Portable Internet. It won't give you amazing speed, but it's A LOT better than dial up!

Great Product

I have to say that this Rogers Portable Internet Modem is a Great product. The download speeds are decent and it is sort of portable.

The one thing that lacks is the Range on the device or off the network. Currently Rogers has this only up and running in select Areas. I have uploaded and Downloaded Terabytes of information thru this device without much hassle.

I would give it a 5 star rating if it worked everywhere :O
