To meet Canadians' growing demand for enhanced internet experiences and as part of a commitment to bring the best possible experience to customers, Rogers Communications is upgrading two of its most popular high speed internet plans with faster download speeds and higher monthly data allowances including:

  • Express: download speeds will increase from up to 12 Mbps to up to 18 Mbps and data allowance will increase from 60 GB to 70 GB.

  • Extreme: download speeds will increase from up to 24 Mbps to up to 28 Mbps and data allowance will increase from 100 GB to 120 GB.

New customers will experience faster speeds beginning February 21st. All new and existing customers will benefit from higher data allowances starting March 8th.
