Reasonable? Ridiculous. I shouldn't have to subsidize the cost of others who are getting speeds more than 50x faster for 1/2 the cost.

Called the number this morning to renew my 1G service and got 1 year at $45.99+tx ( increased from 39.99 )

Called again in the afternoon to renew my parent's 500u plan and was offered $16.90 after taxes. They were originally paying $25+tx. The 1G service for them was only $37.90 so I will call again to see if I can score a better deal .

Called : 1-855-201-9547

Update:
Just got $37.99 for my 1G plan. Got a nice rep from Barrie who 1st tried selling me on upgrading my wireless plan.

So basically on all 3 calls today, I did the calm hello and how you been ... followed by just saying I'm looking to see what the current offers are for me because my discounts are ending.

Good luck.

Called this morning and they offered 1G for $35 + tax. I live in downtown Toronto in a condo where Bell FTTH is also available.

I told them I will shop around and call them back (I really don't need 1G and would rather keep my current 500u $25 plan).

Thanks for the tip! I got the following from the MyRogers Chat. The rep didn't have a 500U promotion available so I just took the Gigbit. My alternative is Fiberstream 30MBit for $35+Tax so this was a no brainer.

Thanks for waiting. So reviewing options here, you are tagged for an offer where I can upgrade you to ignite gigabit, increasing your download speed. This would be for $39.54 a month after taxes.

Any rogers reps that can help? I called multiple times and could do no better than $65/month for 150u or to upgrade to 300u for $70/month. Please PM me.

FB chatted about my 500U $25+tax deal currently good until March 20th. They offered 1Gbit plan for 12 months for $35+tax, and no other options were cheaper (slower yes, cheaper no).

They have it setup to start right before my other deal expires.

Used the chat and got shut down. they offered me 300u for 64.99. i am in Mississauga. where Bell does not offer FTTH.

has anyone been able to get 1G for 45 or 49 when only subscribed to internet in a non FTTH area?

Thanks for the number. Called in as my current 500u/ 25$ plan is expiring March end . Was offered same plan for 30. Although, I still had 2 months left on the current offer, I accepted the 30 deal. I live in Brampton.

I was on the 500U for $34 taxes-in which was expiring March 2019. Chatted online this past weekend to see what they could offer.... was offered gigabit for just under $40/month taxes-in for 12/months straight away. Jumped on it.

Annoying to have to keep doing this every 12 months, however, the price savings are definitely worth it and will keep me with big red.

edit:removed a word

Good to hear. Mine expires March 21st. So I'm probably going to do a web chat with them next week. My building just got fibre installed so there's a lot of competition.

Currently on 500U for $30+tax, ending late March.
Login myRoger account and got the prompt to renew for 1G at $35+tax. Submitted the order online, nice to not have to call in.

Wow....is all I have to say!

My Current offer of 500u, basic home phone, basic cable(do not use) for 68$ a month will be ending March, 2019. I called the normal line and asked about promo's, and then person said they can give me back the same pkg for a slight increase to 97$ a month...."slight". I said nah what about just internet and home phone - after waiting on hold for about 10min for the person to talk to a supervisor for a special code (thats what the told me) they offered me home phone for 20$ and 500 u for 90$...total of 110$ EVEN HIGHER....i laughed out loud...The rep re-iterated that its the best offer and that they had to get special codes to make it happen....WOW....how do they make these offers without laughing themselves.

I also called the number provided above, and the person also quoted the same $20 home phone and 80$ for 500u....i wonder since that is in my account notes....im SOL now....Ah well....

Needless to say I asked to put a cancellation in for all three services and will now wait for a call back. Also will be searching the threads for a 3rd party ISP as well....any suggestions? or is it the usual suspects - Cannet, Carrytel?

thanks in advance!
