How is Teksavvy? I really want to switch to their 28Mbps, 300GB cable plan for $46.95 but that whole lawsuit thing with them being asked to provide customer information for downloading movies is kind of turning me off from them. I really want to cancel my 35Mbps, 120GB, $64.99 plan with Rogers and switch to Teksavvy though so I'm kind of in a pickle.

Why don't you try calling retention and see if they can put you on the W45 plan which would give you 35Mbps, 200GB, free modem for $45/mo, which is similar to what you're looking for from Teksavvy (less 100GB bandwidth).

Yeah that'd be great actually, but how long will I be paying that $45/mo? Is that permanent or does the price go back up after a set amount of months? Are there any strings attached? Also how do I go about asking for that plan?

It is price guaranteed for 8 years. Any price increases during that time is supposed to be credited back to you (or so they say). No strings attached but they might try to tack on an activation fee (which you can ask to be credited back to you when you speak to retention). You can tell them you saw a flyer in the mail about this plan and want to switch to it. The plan code is W45. The full details are: Extreme internet (35Mbps down/3Mbps up), 200GB bandwidth per month, free modem rental, price guaranteed for 8 years, $45/mo.+tax.

It's a hit or miss when you call retention. So if they refuse to give it to you, just call back again, until you get a good agent. Are you currently on contract with Rogers or are you month-to-month. You'll probably have more leverage if you are off-contract. You can even hint to them that you want to switch to Teksavvy for the $47 plan, but you found out about the W45 plan which would be good enough for you to remain with Rogers.

I am currently month-to-month with them for internet. I am not on contract. How would I go about getting connected to retention? Thanks for your help, I'll give this a shot.

Call up Rogers and choose "cancel internet service". You should be directed to an agent. Tell them you wish to speak to customer retention about cancelling your internet. They will either confirm they are retention, or they will transfer you. Once you have them, tell them about switching to Teksavvy, but also tell them you found out about the W45 plan which is comparable. Tell them before you consider switching to Teksavvy, whether Rogers can switch you to W45 so that you remain with Rogers. Let them do the rest. Again, if they don't offer you W45, then call back and try again. You can even commit to the cancellation since you have 30 days to reverse it. And in the meantime after you cancel, Rogers will call you back to offer you deals to stay. At that time, try to get them to offer you the W45 plan.

Thanks for letting me know. I will definitely do this.

I got one in the mail but it stated 300 GB, 25/2; is anyone else getting the same or is it the 35/3?

Have been their customer for a LONG time (home phone + Extreme Plus + TV). Called last night to renew the contract. The best they can do for me is a $45 increase lol

CSR said, the benefit of staying with Rogers, even paying $45 more, is that I can get back on a deal when they have a promo (what kind of reasoning is that...)

He also said the other guys require a contract (as far as I know Teksavvy doesn't require a contract).

Cancelled right away. If I don't get a better offer from them within the 30-day, will switch to Teksavvy and freephoneline, and use HD antenna.
