Rogers Portable Internet Service
Reviewed on Saturday December 29, 2007 by angus, bc
In a nutshell, I like it.
I only have the basic $29 service, and it works for me. The only problem with the slow version is you tube videos will stall a bit, but for general business use, it is great.
The price per month is about the same as a any cheap service, but you do get a portable service! The modem itself will also run off 12 volts from your car too (watch the polarity of any adapter so you don't fry it), so you can use it in your car or truck with a laptop as long as you are stationary.
Service is spotty still (main cities and centers) so check the service maps.
I mainly use it at home, and it works fine. During bad weather the radio signal varies a little, and during really bad snow the signal might drop altogether for a day (happened twice), but Rogers got things fixed quickly.
Rogers has been good to deal with, so no complaints at all.
I would recommend this service if you need to move your computer around the house, travel alot, or are a truck driver or salesman. Just check the service map across Canada to be sure you will have service.
The modem is light and easy to pack.
