Default Rogers Network Quality

Please Login to Remove!

Has anyone noticed a decline in Rogers' network quality in the Toronto area as of late?
I am on the harbourfront (Queens Quay area) and spend most of my time DT and around bay/kicg/front/etc and I have noticed way too much congestion and inability to send SMS'.

ANyone else been having similar expereinces?
Blackberry Curve (8300r) on Rogers (Toronto, ON) with hosted BES. Previously: 8700r and 7290.

In Alberta I find its hit and miss when it comes to my sms messages going through. Other than that the Rogers network is awesome for reception everywhere I have gone. Including the middle of some lakes around here.

it all depends where the tower is, i have not have any problems with the rogers network. I always get reception, i only have problems where reception is hard to get. Some building interfer with the signal so it's not the network. More towers should be put up. my 2 cents on that

I don't believe its a coverage or tower capacity issue.

Rogers hasn't added switching capacity since taking on Fido. And there are few switching centres across Canada.
