I was charged 50 for r cable installation. I thought it should have been 50% off or free?

50% off is for folks in the Cogeco area. Free cable install is for transfers from one cable company to another. If you don't fall into any of these categories, installation is $50.

Still not sure how this thing works... I registered my brother with ebox in June. Is it too late for him?

The old group buys no longer work because it is only for new customers. I ended up going with Carrytel instead. There rates are by far the best but the reviews for the support are poor.

You're both right and wrong!

My group buys are still working; however, you're right that it's only open to new customers.

I'm starting one this afternoon!

FREE cable transfers, discounted new cable installations ($25 instead of $50 for v-cable) depending on region and discounted new FTTN install at $25 instead of $50 (DSL 6 not included) for both Ontario and Quebec customers. Startup cost can be minimal!!!

Rogers cable area customers can enjoy 1 year of free modem rental.

Contact me TODAY and YOU can be part of the next group! :)

In the past, if you're using the same modem that was used for Teksavvy, my understanding is that the will be downtime of up to 24-72hrs. If you're using a modem that isn't already tied to Teksavvy, the is practically no downtime.

I'm transferring a friend from Teksavvy to Ebox using the same modem. The transfer date is set for a few weeks from now. The techs at Ebox are saying the delay has been reduced to one day, these days. I'll report later what happens!

An update to switching from Teksavvy rCable and bringing own modem. My friend got the transfer done in 36 hrs. The first day was transferring service from Teksavvy to a temporary Ebox modem in their warehouse. The second day was to transfer service from their temporary Ebox modem back to my friend's modem in Toronto.

This process might've taken less than 36 hrs if the transfer date wasn't set on a holiday, which it was.

Thanks. Let's see if they update their standard rates soon like Teksavvy and Start have.
