speed? cap? contract?
It'll likely be a 1 yr contract. Cap is 60GB for standard and goes down to 10GB for lite which is likely the cheap plan listed.

Unless you're insistant on cable internet if you're switching rom Bell Teksavvy is a much better deal for no liminted time pricing nor cap.

Regarding voip why pay $15/month on a one year special when there's better and cheaper options like voip.ms, Freephoneline and Magic Jack
?

Tell me about it. I heap ppl complaining about how expensive Rogers is all the time on sites like this but with all the discounts, free pvr's etc they offer I might still have cable if I lived in a Rogers area.

Thank you on the feedback
by the way
I wold not give my TV money to neither Cogeco nor Bell. Why pay $60 when you could get at 10 - 15 digital channels from an outdoor antena. I think that the way everything goes up these days (Hydro HST, mortgage rates just to name few), that $700 can be spend better on your loved ones.

Hamilton
I just dumped Cogeco for Bell and am very happy. Cheaper and better. The TV especially. Cogeco's HD service in Hamilton is some kind of sick joke.

And you need to sub to like a $60 TV plan to even order HD plus their boxes are expensive as hell PLUS they make you go on a 1 yr contract to do so.

Compare that to Rogers who have had HD boxes as little as $100 _nd you only need to get basic cable to sub to HD.

We so need cable resellers like we have for DSL
