[Sobeys] FibreOP for $99.95/month for 6 Months + $200 Sobey's Gift Card (Halifax)

Received this offer in the mail the other day, seems like a pretty good deal for around here, mayybe not as good as some of the deals in the GTA. Judging from their wording it looks like this includes their "best" bundle which includes the movie channels.

yes ... there are caps

Speed Down / Speed Up = Per Month BW

175/175 = 300GB
50/50 = 250GB
25/10 = 125GB

Also, after the first 6 months, the 175/175 is $199.95/mo.

Incorrect. Bell Aliant FibreOP has no bandwidth caps. *Bell* products have caps.

This is false. There are no data caps with Bell Aliant. And there isn't even a 175 mbit tier - top tier in a bundle is 80 / 30 which is $174 / month for the bundle.... the 250 Mbit internet is $250 / month just for the internet (I don't even know what people would do with that, your hard drive probably can't even handle it)

OP - This is a good deal. A few months ago the deal was basically the same except you only got a $100 gift card or a Kobo and got 6 months of free PVR service. That is what I signed up under. This is a better deal IMO. But a week ago they were running a DIFFERENT deal that was $99 / month for 12 months! But that only seemed to last a week.

their ads are really dishonest. they specifically say their prices are this or that better than the competition, then at the bottom in unreadable fine print it says "for 6 months". so their price isnt better than the competition like the fricking ad says. this one says 6 months right in the body, but others havent

and dont consider the lack of a cap too much, they can and will add a cap whenever they feel like it

I have heard other customers describe it as a "bandwidth suggestion" of 250GB/month rather than a cap. It probably comes from the language they use in their "Acceptable Use" policy:
EXCESSIVE USE OF BANDWIDTH
Bell Aliant does not place a cap on a customer’s bandwidth use, or charge customers for the amount of bandwidth used, but reserves the right to take measures to address any customer's excessive use of bandwidth, which can negatively impact Bell Aliant's Internet or its users. Bandwidth usage is the amount of data sent and received through your Internet connection.

Bandwidth use is considered to be excessive when it significantly exceeds the usage characteristic of a typical residential user of the Service. This will be determined by Bell Aliant in its sole discretion. If the customer anticipates usage in excess of the typical residential user, the customer should inquire about the availability of dedicated service or other service options.

If a customer's use is deemed to be excessive, Bell Aliant will make every effort to contact the customer and review the matter. However, where Bell Aliant, in its sole discretion, determines that the usage potentially impacts Bell Aliant's ability to provide its Internet Services or that its network resources need to be protected, it reserves the right to suspend or terminate service in response to a customer's excessive bandwidth use, without notice to the customer.

As a guideline, in our experience typical residential bandwidth usage tends to be well within the range of 250GB per month. This guideline includes a combination of downloaded and uploaded content. Examples of Internet activities that can contribute to heavy bandwidth usage include downloading and uploading movies and streaming videos. For example, 250GB would be equivalent to approximately downloading or uploading 50,000 songs, or 570 1 hour TV shows, or 285 standard definition movies or 25 high definition movies.

Thanks OP, I had already signed up for the "better" bundle with the standard 3 months at $99. I called and was able to switch over to this.

Just signed up with Fibre Op in Halifax: $99/6months for best bundle, no contract, free install, as many HD receivers as required, 1 PVR included and -this is the kicker- a $300 visa card. Will get the 50/30 internet with that -no cap.

If you're in Toronto you can't get this, Bell Aliant is not the same as Bell. It's only in the Maritimes.

If you're in the Maritimes, call and ask.

How are people doing for deals after the promo period has ended? Are they just getting read the list price or is there a discount to be had?
