raymac46 Posted July 10, 2022 Share Posted July 10, 2022 Along with about 10 million other Canadians, I was knocked offline for hours on Friday. Rogers Communications messed up its network with a botched upgrade and I lost home phone, mobile phone, SMS messaging, and Internet. I had a small subset of cable TV channels operating. Rogers was not saying why but many analysts think it was a BGP issue similar to the Facebook meltdown last year. In addition to my personal problems, most 9-1-1 calls, emergency medical services, Interac/credit card payments, gas stations, grocery stores, shopping malls etc. were all compromised. I got mobile back late Friday, Internet and home phone was back early Saturday, and by Saturday night TV was back to normal. The problems with dealing with a monopoly for all my communications.
