Now our internet speed of 15 down and 1 up is NOWHERE NEAR THAT RATE. It's awful. I can't browse social media on my phone while my wife uploads basic word documents to her google drive at the same time without one of our connections constantly "spinning".
Rogers should be pretty consistent with speed. Have you done a speedtest from a computer?

What in the actual hell. I have the same package as you, sitting downtown toronto and all i'm getting is:
Download 130.6 Mbps
Upload 32.26 Mbps
Ping 31ms

You sure your device supports the full gigabit speeds?

1) I am living in Scarborough (near North York), got a deal for Bell Fibe 300 from Jan 1, 2018 @ $59.95 + tax (monthly) for 1 Year and it will be $89.95+ tax after a year.
2) Today one Rogers Salesperson came and mentioned about really good deal for our building. He offered Ignite 500u @ $30+tax (monthly) for 2 years.

I have a few questions:
1) I gave my details to Rogers Salesperson and I am planning to get Bell connection disconnected. Is it the right decision?
2) Will it be easy to get Bell connection disconnected? Anyone with experiences.
3) Should I mention it to Bell that I got a better deal with better speed with Rogers and hope Bell matches the price to $30 per month (I am fine with Bell speed)?
4) Will it impact my credit score for disconnecting such internet connection?

Im in North York, getting similar deals, $55 from bell 300/100 unlimited and $89 after a year .... and $40 from rogers 500Mbps unlimited. i think i'll go with Roger's as it's more speed and lower price and since you're getting that same plan for only $30 per month, half of your bell's price, you should go with Roger's.

though do give bell a call to see if they can match your Roger's offer. if they did Bell would be better since they've much higher Uploads speed as well. As for Your questions.

I am in same boat. I am currently with Rogers and was offered 500Mbps deal if i want to stay with Rogers, but I am planning to go with Bell since Rogers speed is not consistent through out the day even though I have FTTH. I am on Gigabit plan with Rogers and speed drops under 200Mbps in the evening :rolleyes:

Bell recently upgraded my modem to the new Home-Hub-3000-modem. Ever since they have switch to it lots of my device keeps loosing connections using it. The WIFI strength signal is a lot weaker in the house. I had to get three WiFi repeater installed in my small split entry. My netflix and amazon prime has buffering issues now since they upgraded the new modem. Some web pages like ctv and cbc news are some time slow to load. I even tried rebooting the hub and doing a hard reset, and running there wifi optimizer wizard and still same issues. I am now trying to fight with bell to switch back to the old style modem because you never ha issues like this. I be-leave they are pushing these new modem to be able to secretly throttle internet speed. Also all the bandwith signal are set at max! I am calling eastlink today which is better then bell and a sister company of roger to get my services switch with them.

Also the bell phone lines always have a large echo in it.

Thanks, I took the $30 (+tax) Rogers Ignitie 500u plan in January. Infact many people got it for just $24.99 (+tax) around February. However Rogers just increased my plan's price to $38 (+tax) from this month after giving a lame excuse. Anyone with similar experience?

I just left Bell and signed up with Rogers a week ago for $24.99 for 500u...... I'm sorry I did. Rogers speed is not consistent at all compared to Bell. I live downtown Toronto area and Rogers jumps all over the place ...... very disappointed. When I called tech support, they don't even know what to tell me. I may switch back to Bell. If you're planning on switching, keep the service you're disconnecting for a few extra days and do your own testing.

Which one is better? I am currently with Rogers (VIP gigabit that ends on June 3rd). I am only getting 200-300mbps, they never resolved this issue for almost 2 years. I need the cable tv, I have hbo and tmn, 1 pvr, 1 hd box and paying only $120 all in. Amount never increased for 2 years.

I have a similar issue. Currently with Rogers 150U paying 80/ month.

Bell rep contacted me with a 300U promo for 24.99+tax and $100 Gift Card. I spoke to Rogers and they offered to match with 500U for 24.99 but no GC.

I'm debating staying with Rogers for the (on paper) higher speed (300 vs 500) but the 100 GC is tempting and i don't think I'll notice the difference between the 300 and the 500. Thoughts on Bell Fibe vs Rogers Ignite? Same shit, different brand? Or worth switching? I'm in the Junction, in Toronto if that helps.

In general, I'm glad that we're getting reasonably priced internet now, finally!

Great offer dude! But I would go with Bell because Fibe is a lot faster and better then Cable.
