Rogers having some Vision problems?


Vision TestWe just got word that Rogers is having some problems with their recently-unveiled 3G Vision network, mainly that calls are frequently dropping when switching from 3G towers to the old 2G coverage. An internal memo confirmed the problem, so odds are the worker bees are busy on fixing it, although the problem reportedly persisted through the testing phase. Any Canadian subscribers out there been experiencing problems? Leave a comment!
