YMMV here but I have been on a Rogers Corporate Plan for about 6 years and just got an email that it will be phased out next month. My monthly rate will go up by $15 and my data cap will be cut in half. Needless to say, I will be looking for a new provider when I come back from my holiday in early Sept.

Speaking of Rogers cable, I have cut the cord for almost 6 years as well and do not miss it 1 beat. I just picked up an Amazon Fire TV over the weekend and being a huge sports fan, let's just say I can watch any sports game I want and I don't have to pay an arm and a leg.

Best of luck with your plans.
The plans I was checking out at Rogers are the new plans, so I'm aware they aren't great. But they're perhaps a little better than my existing plan, or at least not worse.

As for cutting the cord, I'd do it, but my wife won't accept that... yet...

I had 50% off 100u ignite plan since last year which expired last month. Called retention yesterday to see what they can offer.
I was offered 100u plan for $67 tax included with 2 year CONTRACT I said I don't want contract.
After 10mins of hold I was offered Ignite 60 Student plan with 400gb limit for $62 (1 year guaranteed) NO contract

I've been trying to get a deal for the last few weeks, and this is the only one I've got so far.
What do you guys think? Should i just go for it.
I def. want the Rogers Plus Cable.

Rogers 60mb/s, 200gb cap
Rogers Plus cable,
No install/Act Fee.

$105 + tax = $118/m for 2 yr

Currently using teksavvy internet only, no cable service. and my month to month usage has been 130gb average.

Otherwise, if other people are wondering, it would be $85/m if Basic Cable.

had the same deal... I was paying 48$ until this June for the Ignite 100/10. I called them last week to ask them for a new deal.... they offered 67$ for the same plan with a 2 year contract. I said I have to shop around and I'll call back. I called back, dialed into the options to cancel the service, I told them I called before but I found a better deal and I don't want to leave. They asked me how much did I find, I said 59.99. After a couple of minutes the rep said they can do that... but still on a 2 year contract. I accepted, I'm happy with the service. I only have internet so TV, phone, everything depends on it. Happy for the next 2 years.

also the deal comes with free shomi (for what it's worth)

Background: Ignite 250u, 50% is about to expire on July 31, 2016.

I called Retention (Call 1-888-764-3771, Select Account Changes [option 4], Select Cancel Services), and told them the following:

"My 50% discount is set to expire at the end of July – I heard you guys are offering Ignite 100u for $60 / month". The Consumer Relations Representative extended the following offers to me:

1) Ignite 100u, $60 + tax, 24-month term, rate-protected, able to cancel within the first month (fees waived: installation, activation, modem rental).
2) Ignite 250u, $70 + tax, 24-month term, rate-protected, able to cancel within the first month (fees waived: installation, activation, modem rental).

I ended up going with the first option. The point of my post: be nice, don't go ballistic and threaten to cancel immediately. Mention the deal, and chances are you'll get it ;)

$59.99 + tax(ON) = 59.99 * 1.13 = 67.7887.

You were literally offered the exact same offer ($67 including tax = $59.99 before tax).

It's a good deal, considering alternative offers.

How did you reach retentions? By asking to cancel?

Also when you were offered the Student deal by retention did they know you are a current student? Or it doesn't matter whether you are a student or not?

On Rogers website, the 100u shows as $69.99/month, but 60u shows $77.99/month.
Is it price error or price for 100u just dropped?

If you try to purchase it online the order summary page says 100u is $87.99, so it's likely a price error on the main page. I guess you can try to get Rogers to honour the $69.99 pricing, but their system will probably list the correct $87.99 price.

I just got my bill post $99 Ignite bundle and this is the worst I've seen in all my years. HST value as much as the net.

And top it off, I received it by e-mail today with the due date for payment being July 31st.

Here's what I don't understand.
My regular bill prior was $110 + HST (roughly $124).
New bundle + extra box is $105 + HST (roughly $118).

Bill I just received has partial payments, which I expected, but the total payment required with HST is $170.

So, 2 months worth of payments puts me at $294.
But even if I stayed at my other more expensive rate, 2 months worth of payments is $248.
And it should be lower than that, since I had nearly 2 months (2 months less a couple days) on the newer, lower priced bundle.

Ughhh. Should I call in or wait for the next month to see if they credit something I'm missing here. These bills usually ironed themselves out in a 2 month span, not 3. Did anyone else notice the same?

The credit for the Ignite internet appears to be correct (should be $60 after credits/month). Everything else is funky. lol
