You’re right, I haven’t. How does the process work?
If I’m going to threaten cancellation, I should be willing to follow through without bluffing, right? That would mean I’d need to get a good offer elsewhere, or else I’ll be without these services.

What’s the best way to go about this cancellation process?
Just call Rogers and tell them you want to cancel after the current cycle ends.

Out of curiousity, when signed up for 300 U, what speeds are people actually getting?

I used speedtest and when i was on their 60 mbps plan, i was getting around 40 mpbs download...and now that im on 500, i'm only getting max 120 mbps on a direct lined connection
I was on gigabit before but rarely ever got the full 1000 for extended periods. Typically fluctuated around ~600-800. Depends on things like congestion in the area and usage times, peak hours are always slower.

Does anyone know if Rogers will still give you a winback call after cancelling if you received their 'let's make things right' email (and called the included number with no luck on a better deal)?

Also, anyone have experiences with Carrytel? Been looking around at other options and their 150/15 for $49.99 seems to be one of the better ones I can find atm. Saw they had a $39.99 promo for the same plan back around February, sadly missed it would have jumped on that if I saw. Cannet also seems to be offering the same plan, but charges a $70 activating fee while Carrytel has none.

I just got this deal:
300 internet
Premier cable (no boxes, we own ours)
Free HBO/Crave for 12 months
And 2 -$100 credits that will come off of our firs 2 bills.

All of this for $128 + tax
I wouldn't call that a deal at all.

I was paying $133 tax in for Gigabit/Premiere with 4k PVR and HBO/Crave for 12 months.

Faster internet and cable box rental for less money, even if you divide your credits by 24 months.

Downgraded to gigabit/standard cable/Hbo Crave 1 year/HD box (no pvr but purchased 3.0 PVR used for $60) for $59 tax in.

Why would he divide it by 24, and not 12 since you're talking about 12 month periods?
(128*12-200)/12= 111+tax ($126)

It’s a suggestion of a hypothetical scenario for comparison’s sake. Problem with hypothetical scenarios is that they’re just that.

Divide it by however many months, it is still not a deal.

The "let's make things right" was your winback attempt, and you whiffed on it. Try calling the number back and negotiate again.

Hey guys my friend just shifted to a new condo. She was a bell customer and was looking for internet for new condo. So I asked her to call the same Rogers guy who gave me internet for my home. You won’t believe what she got . She got 1GIG internet for just $50
Would you be able to give me the number for this Rep?

Also, is that $50 for the 1st year only?
