OK - re. cash back change from 24->48 months

I called and they said that the 24month had a limited number of promotional spots available. If you submitted your order during this time, then you still get the 24month (10$/month) credit.
Thanks for the heads up, now rebate is available for 48 months for Cogeco 60/10M plan

Rogers Cable 75M plan(75M downloading speed, 10M uploading speed)
$34.99/30days, Free installation, $99.00(Technicolor TC4350 cable modem, Support 1G speed, 32 downstream channels, 8 upstream channels)

Thread Summary
Any questions or on-going discussion in regards to CarryTel can be found in the On-Going Discussions forum:

CarryTel Internet 150 mbps 49.99

Cash Back: Cash back is provided as a recurring bill credit, starting immediately, split equally over the designated time period (i.e., 240$ cash back = 5$/month credit for 48 months, or 10$/month for 24 months if you got in early).

FAQ:
Is this Rogers or Cogeco? Neither. Only the last mile (aka lines to your home) are through them, though it's Rogers/Cogeco technicians who will hook up your connection. Carrytel schedules the appt but it's Rogers/Cogeco who ultimately will decide when/where/how they will do it.

Who is the backbone (servers)? Carrytel uses Cogent, an American company, as it's backbone.

Is this company related to CIK? No. CarryTel operates off Cogent.

I'm on 40/10MB with Start right now for $50/mo + $5 modem rental. $62.15 tax in.

How is this provider? I need reliable connection. Would like to hear feedback.

So, questions are the following.
1) Which modem is better? Hitron CDA-RES cable modem or Technicolor TC4350 cable modem?
2) Which service provider is better? Cogeco Cable or Rogers Cable? Not for speed difference.

I'm currently using Carrytel Fiber internet 25/10 for $34.99 and paying $2.99 per months for DSL modem rental. Definitely, wants to get faster speed and keep the ability to upgrade to even faster speed in the future, Technicolor TC4350 is one that supports 150/15 plan offered by Carrytel.

Ongoing deal discussion is below, I have no issue and been very consistent so far. Since there is no contact and risk-free 7*days trail, there is no hurt to try.

The way I understood it, you don't get to choose; but rather, your home is either in a Rogers Cable area or a Cogeco Cable area, and you would get the corresponding promotion/plan/price.

I see, I think that the only option for me is Rogers, I used to have Teksavvy cable service then switched to Carrytel fiber plan, I placed the order for its 50/10 plan but was told that my address can only get 25/10, even though the bell technician came twice and buried a new line for me, I can only get around 6Mbps uploading speed, 25Mbps is kind of slow for me know when multiple devices streaming youtube or Netflix at the same time.

So it says "Cogeco Unlimited 60M plan" does that mean it uses cogeco lines, like Start does? Ive never had a problem on Start, so I wouldnt have a problem with Carrytel?

Also, has anyone signed up with this offer yet? Does it say anywhere on your invoice that they will give you the $240 back in 2yrs. Just worried they will deny the offer existed or something to get out of giving the credit.

Current customer, decent service. Just a pain in the ass when things don't go right... but all in all not bad when it gets up and working. Have only had one 3-hour period of downtime in the month I've been with them.

Any idea if this is available to current customers? I'm currently on $39.99 for 60down 10up. Would be interested in the 34.99 for 75down/10up.

Currently on their 50fibe that uses bell line. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone. Have had some random hiccups but I feel like its the bell modem causing these issues.
I prefer bell over rogers line simply because I always get variable speed with rogers lines in my area. Bell internet always gave me consistency.

I believe you may have to pay a $50 change fee that they charge if you want to change to the $34.99 plan.

+1, we're on the Fibe 25 service with Carrytel, no complains so far, installed since May.

Do they have cogeco in Toronto or is it Rogers only?

I just bought a new condo downtown and looking to get a decent internet deal. Is the Rogers deal good? Thanks!
