I am finding this a bit slower to buffer lately but once it does go through its buffer routine it works fine

.. the way things are going here in Canada, live streaming may be less favourable, as there is a lot going on right now with Internet Companies "attempting" to revise their packages/monthly bandwidth usage/caps.

As most of you know, uploading/downloading is at the top of the tree, but live streaming, skype, interactive media, online gaming, flash content on websites .... all eat away at your allowance.

Visit www.openmedia.ca for the lowdown on current events, as reports continue on a daily basis.

All the best!

Not working out that way here...with all this streaming malarkey...

Monthly Usage with one day left to be added...(even with Expatshield out of action):

Plan Total - 95 GB, Used - 95.26 GB, Overage - 0.26 GB

Looks like we will owe Mr Rogers for an extra gig or two....seems our streaming is rising month over month.

Total Usage (GB) -Usage Allowance (GB) Additional Usage (GB) -Usage Charge
Dec 5/10 - Jan 4/11 93 95 0 $0.00
Nov 5/10 - Dec 4/10 73 95 0 $0.00
Oct 5/10 - Nov 4/10 61 60 1 $2.00
Sep 5/10 - Oct 4/10 44 60 0 $0.00
Aug 5/10 - Sep 4/10 15 60 0 $0.00

Weird! I've been streaming and torrenting extensively for almost 3 years and never gone over. I think streaming uses more bandwidth than torrenting, which is what I do most.

ROGERED BY ROGERS

AVAILABLE PACKAGES:

Ultra-Lite - Up to 500 Kbps for $27.99, 2GB Allowance (5 bucks per gig overage)

Lite - Up to 3Mbs for $35.99, 25GB Allowance (2.5 bucks per gig overage)

Express - Up to 10Mps for 46.99, 60GB Allowance (2 bucks per gig overage)

Extreme - Up to 10Mbps for $59.99, 95GB Allowance (1.5 bucks per gig overage)

)

A bit more choice in NB.....would be nice....besides Bell Alliant Attached is a screenshot showing my speed this evening. Considering this was on a laptop over a wireless connection, with another wireless computer merrily streaming 'Sun, Sand and Suspicious Parents'....the 10.19mbs download is pretty decent.

We have had a little discussion today - me and Rogers, it got to me about to give my credit card details to cancel all 3 contracts we have with them when they said hmm well maybe we could waive it this time but you do need a roaming plan when you leave the country ( no shit sherlock?!)

They finally waived it but I was crapping myself that I was gonna have to cancel the 3!!
