I have a year contract with Rogers left and in order to upgrade my phone, the early upgrade fee right now is $169. Is this the same amount if I were to cancel my services + 30 days notice. I plan on calling them to see what they will offer me. If I'm not happy with the offer I plan on porting over to koodo.

Highly unlikely this is the same as the termination fee. The early upgrade fee is predicated on you continuing your relationship with Rogers, signing a new contract. A full cancellation is likely to cost you more.

I might be wrong on this.
Before the Flex plan, Rogers charged $20 per remaining month, up to $400. With the new Flex plan, the subsidized amount plus whatever fees Rogers came up with, is spread over 36 months. I think most devices' amount is now $450.
So, OP is either paying $240 for cancellation under the old term, or $13 (?) x 12 = 156. In worse case scenario under the old term, OP is paying an extra $71 over HUP. Most places give big incentive for new contract, not renewal. So, it's probably better to break the contract and sign up with another company.
