[Rogers] Rogers Home Phone starting at $10

I posted this in the Rogers Cable/Internet thread, but since it technically isn't tied to those services I'll post a new thread too.

Rogers has a promo on for new customers for Home Phone.
Essentials: regular $31, promo $10
Favorites: regular $41, promo $15
Deluxe: regular $46, promo $20

Pretty good value. Better than anything retentions is offering. Requires a 2 year contract. $5 for 500 North American long distance available as an add-on.

Essentials is their basic service, gets you just a phone line. Favorites includes any two calling features, normally $6-$7 each. Deluxe includes 6 calling features.

For customers without RHP, call 1-866-569-5315 ($50 installation fee). For existing customers, call the regular 1-888-ROGERS1 number and reference the SRU plan. It's supposed to be for new customers, but existing customers are currently being allowed to switch, YMMV. From what I was told, you can choose one and change to any other during the 2 years and keep the promo pricing. So, if you pick the deluxe now, you can switch to the Essentials for $10 later. I am a little skeptical of this, but another rep confirmed it.

More expensive than most VOIP options and some smaller telcos, but seems to be substantially the cheapest available from any of the major telcos including their retentions depts.

Edit: at least one rep has mentioned this offer will expire March 31.
Edit 2: Some people are being told that they must have either Rogers cable TV or internet to take advantage of this plan.
Edit 3: Ontario only. $50 install fee for new customers seems to be easily waived upon request.
2015 wins: Trip for 2 to NYC with airfare, limo, hotel and insurance ($3700); Maple Leafs tickets($250); 32GB HTC One M9 ($700), Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1($200), Samsung Galaxy Note 5($850), Aukey 2 port fast car charger($23), Fitbit Flex ($120), Blue Piston Bluetooth Speaker ($30). 2016 wins: nada

You call in using the numbers provided. It is unadvertised (well, at least unadvertised online. They sent out mailings to some cable/internet customers.)

To see the details of the plans, just go to rogers.com. But that will show the retail pricing.

Thanks OP, just save me some money! Just confirmed it works for existing customers as I mentioned that I was made aware of the promotion and wanted to avail of it. It seems the Rogers reps are aware of the promotion, so I suggest on jumping on it if you want your bill to be lower for at least 2 years

This is a real landline, not VoIP?

The promo price holds for the whole contract period?

If yes, then hot. Might switch from Primus.

It is not considered VOIP, though it is still network based. Any packets travel only on their private network, not the public internet. For all intents and purposes it is POTS. For instance, if you have a security service that requires a POTS phone line, this will qualify.

Promo pricing is good for two years.* Prices are all inclusive, except for taxes. So no SAF or NAF or BSF added on top.

*Doesn't mean rates won't go up, but they are not intro prices, they are term prices. If they raise rates you should be able to get out of the contract since that is a modification of the terms of the contract.

I just called and they told me it's a 2 year contract. I was interested in $15 one but the promo price is only for the first year, second year the price will go up to $40.91

Thanks.

I need to have a landlIne for my Acanac DSL. Will this switch require me to have a dry loop installed for my DSL at extra cost?

I see that their version of Bell's Ident-a-call (Distinctive Ring) is "a la carte only". Wonder if that means it can't be included ad one of the six Deluxe features?

Would Teksavvy Cable and Rogers Home Phone interfere with eachother?

I don't think so but I rather confirm now then have issues if I do switch.

I believe so.
http://www.rogers.com/web/Rogers.portal ... _homephone says: "Rogers Home Phone uses the same, secure Rogers cable lines to deliver your phone service. Simply put, instead of getting your phone service over the telephone company wires, you'll get it through Rogers lines."

(A "dry loop" is not something that is installed. The monthly dry loop fee is charged on DSL services delivered over telephone lines that do not have the phone service active. I assume you already have the telephone lines coming into your home.)
These folks have taken over RFD, so I'm done here.

Agent said 2 year contract prices, those are prices for the whole duration, NOT for one year only.
Agent confirmed this with me yesterday - so, one of them is mistaken.
Anyone else have confirmation?

The advert I received says:

"This price is guaranteed for 2 years"

I think it is also a part of their Home and Away Call Manager feature, which should be eligible as one of the included features.
