If you mean the modem rental fee, it's built into the plan cost even though they list it as a break down, and never heard of anybody being able to get that waived, even if they had an old modem they owned and were using, and didn't upgrade.
I've gotten the modem fee waived when I was on a different plan at one point within the last few years, when it was broken down into plan plus modem rental. The rep did say that everyone rents now but they would waive it as a courtesy. I probably wouldn't bother this time, I don't see Rogers giving me $20 internet.

Called, and they refuse saying it's region specific. Guess they will soon be losing a customer of 20+ years. Paying 89$ + tax for gigabit at present, and only receiving 600mps. Asked to be downgraded to 500U and they said that would drop the price by 4$.

Way to go Rogers,

Put in a cancellation and they called me back today and got 500u back for $24.99, $5 cheaper than what I'm paying now. Thanks OP.

So I spent an hour on the phone last week and the best price I could get was around 100 dollars for 500 mb internet. I called back today and retentions told me that I had the best plan available. Aparantly, these "offers" are specific to postal code. I live in downsview. Can anyone getting a better deal than me (i.e. all of you) tell me what areas you live in? I feel like I'm being descriminated against for where I live. This is like Pizza Pizza charging more to deliver to one side of a street than the other. I've been a customer for 15 years and I'm tired of finding out other people in the same city are getting significantly better plans than me!!!
Discrimination? You mean like how car insurance rates are based on where you live? Rates tend o get more expensive in the GTA as you move West...

Way to go Rogers,
I am paying 79.99 for 1Gps internet, home phone and TV but considering the stability of the internet, I would definitely go with Bell regardless of the price if I have the choice (currently only 50mbps in my area).

Yes, descrimination. I am descriminated against for being a male by my insurance company. I have had zero accidents and a perfect record, but I am judged against other stereotypical males. Imagine if an insurance company wanted to charge me more because of my sexual preference, skin color, etc.

Here's what I know about Rogers and Bell, once they get used to robbing you, they won't reduce the price or give you a respectable offer until you actually cancel your existing deal. You don't gain anything by being good loyal customer to them.
Not true. Been with Rogers now for 17 years. Called 17 times and always renewed with deals. Some years better than others but never once asked to go regular rack rates on any service at any time.

Yes, or check out redflags to see what the current offerings are and try your best to get them to offer you the same or better.
It's annoying to have to bother with this every single year, but that's how it is.
Especially when you don't live in Ontario. I had to bust my nads to get the $24.99 500u deal here in NB last year. Girl at the Rogers store was completely flabbergasted when I went in to get my new modem.

I was paying $60 for 150u for 1 year which is expiring soon. I used live chat and first they said best offer is $63 for 150u, I said thats worse, I wanna cancel. Transferred to different rep to cancel and they said best offer $55 for 150u, I said no thats still not good, I'll go look elsewhere, put cancellation for 1 month from now.
So I'll wait and if they call me with better deal.
The problem is, I live in a building where the max speed Bell offers is 10 Mb.
