Hey All, posted this in the Rogers thread as well
Yea both companies are crooks when it comes to this, then you really look who has the better price at any given moment. :)

I'm currently with Rogers and have Ignite 500u + Popular TV and Home Phone w/ no features for $99.99 (guaranteed savings for 24 months).

Bell called my house today offering Fibe 300, Good TV and Home Phone for $99.85 for 12 months (no contract) + 2 months free HBO. She also told me it comes with the Home Hub 3000 (not sure if that's standard in these packages). I told them that I already had 500u with Rogers and they gave me a spiel about how I won't get full speed with Rogers' copper wires vs Fibre with Bell. After a little more chatting, she said she could give me Gigabit instead of 300u for the same price of $99.85. I told her I would think about it and she would call back later in the week. After the call I realized Good TV wasn't as good as Rogers' Popular TV so I would end up losing some channels.

If I am able to get them to give me Better TV instead of Good TV - is there a reason why I shouldn't switch to Bell? Thanks in advance.

Have been waiting 4 days on a callback to offer me a better deal from Bell when I said I was cancelling. Guess they don't seem to value my business, so I really shouldn't have any problems with switching over to Rogers.

Better TV + Gigabit would be a great deal however I doubt that pricing is still around. Keep in mind that what you have now with Rogers is also not what Rogers offers presently (Bell had a Better TV, Gigabit and Home phone for 92-99 dollars last year for 2 years). I'd try negotiating with both companies and whoever offers you a better deal I would go with them. Bell's interface and hardware is better but not drastically so they are essentially the same thing.

Got small business FTTH 300/300 for $57/mo. Didn't need to provide RC number, just address. Will see how the install goes.

Edit: Installation fee of $80 waived via credit. Technician was pretty accommodating. Speeds cap out around 330 Mbps both up and down.

If this is a brand new building (no previous owners) Rogers will give you EVERYTHING for free for 6 months. No contract, cancel and go with Bell afterwards if you still want to. I did this when I moved into my new rental building when it was first built.

I am moving into a new condo in downtown Toronto and the just the other day Bell Chat also quoted
"Fibre 300 unlimited @ $59.99 +tax for 12 mos. (plus one-time activation fee $59.95+tax) "

Then the Bell rep for my building offered exact same thing but willing to give me VISA gift card $60 as I asked him o waive the install fee.
So it looks like this is the best we can do. I did see one response someone getting Fibre 300 for $24.95 but seems to good to be true.

My building is brand new so the Fibre FTTH is top quality. This is the reason I want to give it a try. Coax cable is same old so nothing new.

Update

I noticed second order was actually messed up and another discount was removed as well. I decided to email under share a concern - goes to the customer relations team. Rep actually tried to call me back after only a couple of hours (I missed the call) I talked to him today and he's promised that he would personally adjust any credits and I was given his direct number if needed.

Call took 5 minutes (comparable to 30-40 minutes dealing with reg cust reps last 2 times)
While you still need to negotiate with retentions I think this might be the better way to go if you were promised something and it wasn't delivered.

Hi,

So we had booked an installation date however I noticed activation charges and some hub charge totally $80 so I called them back. The hub was optional so she took it off but she could not remove the activation charge. She said she put a note on the account for a credit. Now I've been reading past posts and it seems that is sort of iffy when they do that. Is it worth it to keep trying again maybe with a manager or wait until the actual charge. She also had to rebook my appointment so have to wait another week for tech.

thanks

2 live chat and 2 sales conversations and still no deal for my brand new condo. Best they could do for internet only is Ignite 500 for $70.95 +T/mth.
The main rep for the condo could not even be bothered to email me back after a full wk. Terrible Rogers service. Decided to go with Bell Fibre 300 for $59.95 + T/mth.
Every building and every developer have different rules and arrangements with Bell/Rogers. You get anything free, you are darn lucky.

Just switched from Rogers to Bell 300 for $59. Forgot to ask if they can waive the $59 installation fee. Is it too late now that i've confirmed my installation date next month?

Bell are doing a small business promo right now:

Gigabit Fibe (FTTH, 940 down, 940 up)
Unlimited data
Free installation & activation
No dry loop fee

$71.95 per month on a 36 month contract (ETF of $25/month remaining capped at $500). Regular price is $209.95 so in theory they can increase the price by up to $20.95 per year (as per their 10% rule).

They also are doing a winback promotion for Rogers customers. If you can prove you are currently with Rogers, they'll credit you with $200 which basically means the first few months of service ends up being free.

They've really tightened their qualifications for small business though, so be prepared to provide an HST registration number or an incorporation number.

Where's this promo advertised and how do I get it (I have a valid business and GST/HST #)? On their website, after I enter my postal code it shows $151/mo. Screenshot:

Nothing to see here folks...

I just signed up for an amazing deal! Please note, Beanfield downtown condos only:

Fibe 300
1st year: $17.50/mth
Ongoing: $40/mth

One time activation fee of $60.

This even beats the $24.95/mth (1st year) and $49.95/mth (ongoing). The only difference is I have to pay the the $60 one time fee for the lower monthly price.
