If you can get around 100m on Rogers. Fido's 75 is showing up at 100 for me. Also, you can self install and no wait for it. Just try to get the coda modem.

If you get inconsistent speed with Rogers then Virgin Mobile might be better.

Unless you consistently get over 75Mbps on Rogers and need that speed there will be no difference between Fido and Rogers.

Virgin is Bell, so they might be worse or better in your neighbourhood.

You can always just sign up for Virgin, see how it is, and then drop the one you don't want, no harm in having the two at once.

Rogers was offering me 500u for $39.99 and 300u for $34.99, and I decided to get virgin 50MBPS for $30.

just called VM as an existing customer. The best they can do is to offer $10/month credit for 12 months OR $15/month credit for 6 months. I guess I'll be calling Fido.

You're not talking to the right people then, just tell them you want to cancel because of the fido deal and they will either
A. Give you $20 off 12 months, or if your lucky give you 30 off 12 months
B. You just cancel and reinstate your plan and they will come and switch your modem and you get the 30 off for 12 months again.

Tried twice to sign up as new customer. One agent said it's location specific, another said it was only for existing customers. Great customer service and advertising /s

UPDATE: have to call in to get the promotion. chat reps are useless.

@Macross_Freek I'm in Toronto and I wasn't an existing customer. Unless something changes between now and the install date, I got the deal. Definitely call in, and if the first person you speak to is as empty as the chat reps, then call back and speak to someone else, or escalate. No need to lose out on a deal because of a CSR who hasn't a clue.

That's exactly what I did too! Rogers was way too unreliable and inconsistent with the speeds in my area! In fact, the ticket I opened with them over a year ago is still open (I still get email updates for some reason).
I found FTTN far more superior in terms of reliability than cable in my area. I would rather have a slower connection that's reliable than a fast one that's not.

Virgin internet is Bell internet. Bell owns Virgin, and Vrigin sells Bell’s internet under its name. Virgin has no actual infrastructure. It’s all a scam so the CRTC let’s them pay 2 CEOs millions of dollars per year instead of one ;)
I hate Bell but there is absolutely nothing wrong of earning millions.

When poor people tend to benefit more the income tax system, I believe they should be paying more income taxs if the use more the "free" government services such as healthcare.

Earning millions isn't a problem, but rather abusing the free services are.

Plus any scam should be allowed if it is to decrease customer monthly plans.

The real scam is when CTRC denied videotron to offer free music streaming.

dumb question, but I've never had anything other than cable internet.

Does this use the telephone line?

Are DSL filters necessary? (if so, are supplied by the installer?)

Yes, in both cases (if your are FTTN).

The filter (only one) is installed at the demarq for the whole house by the installer.

Any existing VM customers able to get 50 mbps for $50? I'm currently getting 25 mbps for $50, I'd rather get 50 mbps for $50 rather than a $10 credit on 25 mbps at $50 - $10.
