Page 1 of 1
Rogers Cablesystems announced changes to its high-speed Internet access product and a new name to reflect those changes.
Rogers WAVE is now officially Rogers@Home. Earlier this year, Rogers announced an agreement with @Home Network in the U.S. in which the companies joined forces to provide customers with a high-speed Internet backbone, as well as unique content offerings.
At a speed reportedly up to one hundred times faster than typical dial-up services, Rogers@Home said it offers almost instant access to popular sites due to "caching," technology that captures information from sites and replicates it on local @Home servers.
With the most popular data located locally, Rogers@Home customers will see increases in speeds for content requests made from the local @Home server, the firm added.
A new customer's monthly pricing for the special package is $39.95. Existing customers will also participate in the offer by having their modem rental fees waived for the same period, the company stated.
