Rogers reduces bandwidth caps just in time for Netflix streaming

Ben Drawbaugh

Oh Canada, you have all the luck; not. First you have to wait years and years after Netflix streaming comes to the states and now that you've finally got it coming, your biggest ISP drops its Lite service bandwidth caps from 25GB to 15GB. We doubt this is some big conspiracy, but it is rather unfortunate as a single 2 hour HD movie via Netflix will eat into about a fourth of your monthly allotment. And if you go over your 15GB limit, you'll pay $4 per gigabyte, so if you were planning on using the new service we'd suggest you go ahead and sign up for the Extreme service as its 80GB limit leaves a lot more room before you get hit with overage charges.
