Yes, I had some upgrades planned this morning but am working off my Telus Data.

I have data but my friends with Rogers have no internet and no cell phone service.

I am glad my cell is from Telus so at least I can communicate.

The upgrades will have to wait.
 
This is exactly why I don’t like those “bundles” that these big corporations try and convince you to buy. I never thought it was a wise move to have both your cell data and home internet all with the same company. I would rather pay the extra few bucks a month and have 2 different companies than have what is currently happening with Rogers.
 
You are so right, because all my backup connections rely on data I went with Telus which has the most towers.

My internet is with Rogers so I figured one of the two will be running if things go down.

My neighbour has both on Rogers and she just dropped in to use my wife's cell phone.

No bundles for me either and as you can see dn ca is unaffected, we have numerous backup cloud servers if one goes down. At this point the site is as future proof as it gets both with software and servers.

Festival with 35K people who can't withdraw cash or pay with debit.

What in the world is going on? This seems major.

Today's a day when having multiple internet providers, with a dual WAN router, pays off. If downtime is costly, it's a nice insurance policy. Just make sure that the secondary ISP is on an entirely different network (e.g. if Bell is your primary connection, a Rogers/Fido or cable reseller is fine).

If the CRTC had better policies re: MVNOs, wireless subscribers wouldn't have noticed the downtime, as MVNOs have the ability to auto-switch networks:

That's what consumers lose when Ting, Google Fi, etc. aren't available in Canada. :mad:
 
Cellphone service is down and can't login to GoDaddy because of the 2factor authentication.
 
On a side note and along the roger(s) topic, I remember inquiring about roger.ca many years ago. He wanted around $25K for it. I can only imagine the traffic it gets from people who mistype Rogers.ca. I bet he’s seeing a nice surge in traffic today. :)
 
His traffic is going to go way up as we all type it in now. :LOL:
He’s had pretty much the same 1 page for as long as I can remember. Also the same pic. Maybe he doesn’t age? :p
 
And we are up and running this morning, rogers seems to have gotten their act together.

As far as rogers.ca goes..... it does not resolve
