Finally. TekSavvy/Rogers activated my cable modem and I’m officially on TekSavvy’s cable internet service. So what happened? Why did Rogers need to send a tech to visit me? According to the tech, he was there just to 1) check my cable signal strength and 2) label the line as a third party line.
I don’t know why it takes so long to do that and why the folks at TekSavvy couldn’t tell me the reasoning behind the visit but it makes some sense. I’m just glad I can pack up Rogers’ cable modem and return it to them before they bill me for it.
With this ISP nonsense out of the way, I can get back to figuring out how I would like to set up my wiring cabinet for the house.
