I got the $18 off phone and the $10 off TV (even though I was on contract). Its just I feel like I'm getting ripped with the internet.
We are all being ripped off.

FYI

So got off the phone over my nightmare Feb. Bill from BHs "Additional GB $5.00". That additional GB is part of the Security Advance Service which is not free. If you were sent a email to download the app/file of Security Advance Service, you will be charged the Hidden Fee called "Additional GB $5.00" every month. It is a "storage vault" fee for the S.A.S. Even if you don't download and install it you will be charged, it is in all the Fibe Internet Plans, since Jan. 2013. I complained about the hidden charges and ask it to be removed, (seventh person i talked to).I was upset it was not properly explained in my bill.It is under the fine print when you download the app. It was an internet supervisor I spoke to and he couldn't or wouldn't email the link with the hidden charge. BEWARE of anything that is FREE. Hope this helps with all your BHell Billing problems.

Thanks to this thread, I called in today after the 3 months dell bundle trial (all install/activation fees waved and 0$ for 3 months). I live in Quebec City and we have FTTH. I activated the 50/50mbps with 250GB caps on this trial. With only internet, they would charge me a WHOPPING 86.95$ per month. Called the cancellation service and said it was too much for my budget (it literally is). They offered me to keep my 50/50 mbps and 250GB for 53.95$. A 33$ rebate per month just for calling. The lady told me this promo is unlimited, as long as I don't change anything to my internet package, I can keep this promo forever. WOW!! @ 52.95$ on cable I get 20/1 mbps with 100GB caps here in Québec city. This is an amazing deal! THANKS RFD!!

What's the best current bell internet promotion available?
I prefer to have the unlimited offer since I have a 10 year old plan (high speed sympatico DSL with unlimited bandwidth).
Also have home phone for about 20 years so I'm hoping there is a deal on fibe internet....thoughts?

called to cancel bell last week...they called back today and offered fibe 25/10/unlimited for $43 plus tax and $9.95 for home phone instead of $35 . So $53 for both with all the features I have now is OK. I will be calling Rogers to cancell the 8 year deal...
Just a basic home phone line with no features?

I have the $18 off home phone basic (not lite) and was told it would cost $19.95 after the $4 bundle discount.

For the Internet, I was offered only 30% off, instead of the 50% that just expired.

What's your location? I can't get 30% off, only $5 in Markham Ontario.

I was just offered by their Loyalty Dept:

Fibe 5MB/1MB 65GB for $34.99
- first 3 months is $5 a month (for the 65GB vs the standard 25GB) or free if I take 25 GB for those 3 months.
- free installation
- no wireless modem charges
- no contract

Or same deal with 90GB would be $39.95 or $29.95 with 40GB

I declined as I want a sub $35 package with at least 100GB. Am I being unrealistic?

If you're sticking with Bell you are.

I'm getting unlimited download cap size for ~$40 with Distributel.

I was offered only 30% off as well !!! Is 30% off the current best offer from Bell? Time to look at Rogers?

I was not at home and Bell had called and said that If I sign up for all 3 services (including Bell TV) I would get 6 months free but I am not sure about this offer. Has anyone else got a similar offer from Bell?
