Home Phone[edit]

I moved Rogers Home Phone to redirect to here, as it's their product, it doesn't yet need its own article. --20px Spinboy 21:51, 11 October 2005 (UTC)

This section has inaccuracies. The Home Phone product is unrelated to Rogers Telecom. Home Phone was launched by Rogers Cable solely and is a Cable product. The wireline service of Home Phone was announced after the Sprint acquisition still under the Cable banner, and is now discontinued within the Rogers Cable territory.

Sprint Canada[edit]

Wait a minute, was there never a page for Sprint Canada before Rogers acquired it?--Steven 02:14, 22 April 2006 (UTC)

  • It doesn't seem like it, Steven. Remember, Wikipedia started in 2001, back when dial-up was still widespread. Still, there are many good reasons to create a Sprint Canada article. i'll list these reasons below. --LABcrabs (talk) 15:35, 4 June 2011 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Rogers.png[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Rogers.png is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 07:40, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

Sprint Canada article suggestion[edit]

According to this article, and to the facts regarding Rogers' services, the Home Phone seems to be a VoIP solution using the same digital cable that delivers cable TV and Internet. For Sprint, however, this was not the case unless one chose the lately-offered VoIP. For their analog Home Phone service, they did not use a cable or Internet connection like Rogers', but rather depended on a traditional RJ11 phone cable.

The truth is that since 1993, Sprint Canada was its separate company until about mid-2005. Their services included a dedicated Home Phone, an Internet Home Phone, dial-up Interent access, plans for residential High-Speed Internet (business High Speed was available), and even an MVNO partnership with Fido. Their flagship product was long distance, and they helped us get today's penny-low rates. In fact, for over a decade, Sprint was competing against Bell and Rogers before being acquired by the latter. They are an important influence in Canada's telecommunications industry then and now.

Please consider the importance of Sprint Canada and its need for a separate article. Sprint's home phone, dial-up Internet service, affordable long distance and Fido bundles were all competitive products products that Rogers did not have before acquiring Sprint. Please write your comments regarding this. Thank you. --LABcrabs (talk) 15:35, 4 June 2011 (UTC)

On this I'm inclined to agree with you. Sprint Canada should have a separate article. Me-123567-Me (talk) 19:26, 4 June 2011 (UTC)


A representative of Rogers has indicated on Talk:Rogers Cable the entities have been absorbed into Rogers Communications proper[1]. Just thought I would float that bit of information. -- dsprc [talk] 04:42, 6 April 2015 (UTC)
