Anyone get mail said the price will increase on Feb 24, 2016?
I do and I'm on the original $45 (35/3 for 200gb) 8 years price protection plan.

The letter also saying if you are in the promotion period, your price will stay the same till the end of the promotion.

I will keep an eye on the upcoming bills to make sure no any $3 stupid increase.

If you're on the original W45 or the W35 deals and didn't get affected by the $3 increase last time (when it went from $45 to $48 for some people) then you shouldn't get affected this time around also.

I got this plan 3 years ago, but this week I received a letter from Rogers saying that they are going to increase the price by $3/ month from February.
I called Rogers today and the guy told me that he cannot see the "no increase for 8 years" in his system and it is what it is.
Is it only me?

Watch out, they are at it again. I also got the letter.

I have documented proof they gave me 8 years price lock. I had to go through a lot of trouble in 2014 to keep the deal they offered me in 2013.

I have a feeling that I am going to have to go through it all again in February.

Too bad we have no other choice where I live, I would ditch rogers in a minute if another company could offer me the same.

If he's on the original W45 it hasn't increased with the last 2 rounds of price hikes so there's no indication the pricing would all of a sudden be affected now. Same with those on the W35 package. It's the people who are on the newer W45 package who saw their price go up to $48 last time who needs to pay close attention to their bills. If they called in or got CCTS involved to get their rates adjusted back to $45, then this will be the first test of whether Rogers re-added the price protection properly.

Yup, this. There is much to be cynical about with Rogers, but most people (myself included when I had it) on the W35/W45 (original) reported reps mentioning that the price is fixed until 2023. LOL. Even people in a 2 year fixed price get the letter. Everyone does. There is verbiage in there that says people who have fixed price terms are not affected, whether that's 1, 2 or 8 years.

is the W45 a deal anymore given there are other options for the same price? seems like the 8 yr protection was all the rage before, but with Internet usage up unlimited seems to be the way of the future

even 200/300gb doesn't cut it in most big households and even if it's not a cap issue, 35/5 is slow

Most definitely unlimited is the way to go now, even with moderate users (I am one). However, you were able to get W35/45 with unlimited also. Even with unlimited, many have jumped out of that plan for other deals. I for one was fortunate enough to catch the short window of opportunity for Gigabit and VIP for $99.

W45 with unlimited? Damn, I missed the boat on that one.

GigU and VIP for 99 was supposedly only offered for select postal codes in the North York area. If you got in on it, kudos!

Yeah, W35/45 was unlimited for +$10/month.

The Gig/VIP for $99 was first reported on RFD and for a short window, you were able to get it outside of those area codes. :) Not without effort (for most), but it was a very very active thread at the time I recall.

And just as we didn't think we'd jump from W35/45, there may just be yet another crazy deal for RFD to go nuts about. And they are gone as fast as they come. :)
