Thought you meant there is a Wiki with deals listed. I just wanted the link to such a resource.

This is the OP. I've updated the first post with all the current deals. Go and check and comment.

As I've stated before, it seems like all the amazing internet deals have disappeared. The days of the $30 for 50/10 are gone, except for Carrytel (but their reviews are pretty bad and their wifi that is included is N, not AC- Like WTF?! It's not 2002!!!).

Please continue to share your deals and I'll keep updating the main post.

I'm part of the Fizz beta. The service is fast and the price can't be beat. I'm not a fan of their mandatory modem, though. Never got the IP Passthrough to work so I could manage everything through my Google Wifi.

Last week, I had a problem with my internet where it seemed to get very slow and I was getting timeouts. I restarted the modem and router, and it eventually went away. So I'm not sure if the problem came from the modem, the router, or the ISP itself.

As with many ISP, the weakest link is the Wi-Fi part of the modem/router supplied free of charge by Fizz. The connection itself is rock solid since it's Videotron's Internet. If connected through Ethernet directly to the modem, it's 110% speeds, no speed drop, no disconnection. But in my case, the Wi-Fi part on automatic was not choosing the best, less crowded channels. I had to manually correct that. Many report bridging their modem and using their own routers.

But when available to anyone, it's going to be a competitive option because of the Free modem rental and the Free installation.

Thanks guys! Can someone post a price chart with different service levels and prices?

The strange thing is that even my hardwired desktop PC was affected. I've turned off the Wifi on the supplied Modem/Router and use my Google Wifi solution instead.

From the Reddit thread, here are the prices:

25$ -> 15Mbps; 30$ -> 30Mbps; 35$ -> 60Mbps; 40$ ->120

I'm on the 40$ plan and get 130Mbps when doing a speed test.

Those are the beta testing prices NOT available to everyone.

In the future, when available to everyone he are what the regular prices will be:
15 - 30 - 60 Mbps
45 - 55 - 60 $

Upload speed is 10 Mbps

Right, but those are not available yet, from what I understand. If you get on Fizz today, you are on beta. Unfortunately, I don't know how to get the beta service.

BTW, where did you find the pricing for when the service goes live?

That is correct, Fizz Home Internet is still by invitation only and IF you get an invitation, you already know the beta prices. :)

Unfortunately, at this point in time, there is nothing you can do to become a Fizz Home Internet Beta tester.

Yes, you're absolutely correct. I probably shouldn't be getting people's hopes up with the prices that were offered to me as a beta user. :)

Just curious, though, where did you find the regular prices? I can't seem to find them anywhere. Also, did they kill the 120Mbps service?

I think it was different with the first invitations Fizz sent, but now, when you get the invitation, you can see the beta pricing AND the regular prices. The 120 Mbps is no longer offered.
