I don't think it's that good of a deal... you'd be better off spending $10 more and getting the $99.90 bundle. Then you'd have an actual 4KPVR and can watch everything on your TV and you still have all the streaming features Alt TV has. Plus you get more channels with the Fibe TV Better package then the Alt TV Premium. And free installation. And home phone lol.
Pm me with the info

Bell Chat rep offered Gigabit Internet + Alt TV Starter + Crave TV and free installation for $64.95/month. Bell Store rep had wished me good luck getting it lower than $79.99. Still not good enough though.
Lol good luck

Which number did you call?
I just called the 310 bell line and pressed option to cancel service. This automatically sends you to loyalty.

They don't really offer these deals to existing customers. In the end my bill went down $30/mo for essentially the same service and its not a contract so I can cancel anytime.

I sent a message via the online form earlier today and just got off the phone with Bell. I told them that Rogers approached me with their $29 Gigabit Internet promo and I wanted to see if they could do anything with my bill. I'm currently on a $64.95 deal for 300/300 internet with Alt TV which expires in April.

They came back with an offer for Gigabit Internet plus Alt TV for $49.99 a month as the new ongoing price, which I accepted. I might have been able to negotiate more, but I figure saving $15 a month and getting way faster Internet is a win.

Bell rep is offering 59.99 for a gigabit with 100 GC and 59.99 installation charge.

Is it a good deal? Currently with Rogers paying 42 with tax for a gigabit.

Thanks

Hey all, currently have fibe better tv (a couple of a la carte channels and time shift) with 4K rcvr and 1 wireless rcvr. $140 tax in a month. Also have Rogers 500u internet and home phone for $100 tax in a month. I know, not great right.

Cancelled Rogers internet as they wont give me a better 500u price and called bell retentions to get an all bell price. Bell came back with $175 + tax for existing tv, 50mb internet (fastest in my area) and home phone. I escalated and complained but they are not interested in giving me a better price. Any advice would be welcome on how to proceed.

Also, my current bell fibe is using 15mb of internet. If I get 50mb FTTn from a 3rd party, will I only actually get 35mb due to the bell 15mb being used?

Thanks

If you get 3rd party FTTN service it shouldn't affect your existing Fibe TV. A separate line would need to be installed for the internet and you'd have 2 separate modems, one for Fibe TV and one for your other ISP.

Although, I'd recommend trying to bundle all your services together with either Rogers or Bell. I know you tried and couldn't get a better price thru either company but you can ask for promos as a "new customer", if you catch my drift... Smiling Face With Open Mouth And Smiling Eyes

Thanks for the response! I’m not really sure what you mean by new customer? Cancel and cross fingers?

Understood with the fttn, but if it’s using the same bell wiring from my cable box, won’t it be using the same max 50mb line? Still a little foggy to me.

Thanks again for the insight.

The wiring is separate if you use 2 different FTTN providers at the same time. From the modem jack, to the demarcation point, all the way to the Bell network - it's a separate line. The speed of one of your services should not be affecting the speed of the other.

The new customer offer from Bell ($99.90/mo for 24 months for internet + Fibe TV + home phone) is still running and I'm sure Rogers also has something similar.

Great thanks for the fttn info. I will confirm with Virgin that this is indeed the case if I have to go this way.

Sorry to be a pain in the ass, but if I'm as existing customer with Bell, how do I get the "new customer" offer?

Does anyone know how many copper pairs are required for FTTN50?

I always thought one copper pair will provide FTTN25 and both copper pairs are required for FTTN50
