The top up-voted story on the Canada subreddit on Reddit right now as of writing is discussing Rogers Infinite plans and throttled speeds after data caps are exceeded.
User ‘canuck1337’ says “This is your speed after using 10gb on Rogers “unlimited” plan,” and shares the following screenshot, showing a Speedtest.net test of 0.19 Mbps download:
Rogers Infinite plans offer no overage data, starting at $75/10GB. Once data caps are exceeded, Rogers throttles speeds at up to 256 Kbps, as noted on their website. Rivals Telus and Bell with their own similar plans, throttle speeds at up to 512 Kbps, after data caps are exceeded.
Other discussion within the Canada subreddit noted how one customer on a similar Telus no overage plan did not see their speeds throttled after exceeding data caps.
But another user did share a screenshot of their Telus no overage plan after exceeding their data cap:
During yesterday’s Rogers Q2 earnings conference call, CEO Joe Natale revealed there are currently over 365,000 users already on Infinite plans, exceeding company expectations.
Did you jump on these new no overage plans from Rogers, Telus or Bell? Not getting data overages is a good thing, but throttled data speeds are really, really slow.
