$50.85 total after tax. Same day installation.
3 mpbs upload is pretty fair at this price.
The 2nd retentions rep nearly tried to tell me that the modem wasn't included in the $45, but after "checking" found out it was.

They Told me the same thing offered some 20% off on my current plan. However, I kept saying why loyal (current) customer can't get this deal where the new customer gets this deal. Then I told rep. i'll call back on the day my service ends to get this deal. And there was moment silence, rep told me let me check something...after couple of mins. she goes...I check with *someone*...and We can do that as long you agree today. And that was it....I got W45...

You're not on an 8-year contract...you have an 8-year price guarantee. I.e., it's a free option to you to either maintain this current plan, or to switch to something better suited to your needs. The only thing the 8-year price guarantee does is ensure that Rogers won't increase the price for this package during that time period.

i don't doubt your claim that the bell modem is working better than the rogers in the same spot. but let's break this sentence down.
HOW do you know it's working better? are you connecting via wifi? let's break THIS down further...
wifi is wifi right? nope. you need to tune your wifi. every characteristic of wifi can affect your wifi experience. from the authentication protocol you choose, to the channel you're on, to whether you're running 20Mhz or 40Mhz...
I'm not defending rogers saying they gave you good equipment, in fact, you may very well be correct that rogers stuff is ***** . but you can't really conclude that without tuning your stuff.
for me, the rogers d3gn modem actually gives me a stronger wifi signal than my WRT610N router. but the lack of tuning capabilities (or that i've found yet) on the rogers modem actually limits me to about 25Mbps download whereas when I'm connected to my WRT router I'm getting 55-75.
isolate the problems one at a time before you start making bold statements. this will help you in life whether in school or at work. plug your computer directly into the modem first and see what sort of speeds you're getting, thus isolating the modem performance and finding out what the max speed you can get is. then introduce one variable at a time to see how that affects your connection speed.

this was for new customers but retentions had powers to add it to your account
