Rogers Communications Inc. is upgrading service speeds for its retail Internet packages, the company said. The company said in a release Monday that it is doubling the speed for its “Ultimate” package from up to 75 Mbps to up to 150 Mbps, which will include a monthly data cap of 250 GB. Rogers said customers who have not yet received the upgrade will have access to it soon. The company added that, effective Nov. 7, customers with “Extreme Plus” packages will be upgraded from download speeds of up to 32 Mbps to up to 45 Mbps; “Extreme” customers from up to 28 Mbps to up to 35 Mbps; and “Express” from up to 18 Mbps to up to 25 Mbps. Rogers said its Express package is the most popular with customers and that the company has upgraded the package's speed by 150 per cent since the middle of 2011. The Wire Report reported last week that Rogers and Shaw Communications Inc., Canada's two largest cable companies, are trying to offset subscriber losses in their television segments in part by focusing on growing their Internet customer numbers.
