Another TekSavvy price increase
If I am not mistaken, my plan went up by $13 since start of COVID-19 in March of 2020. Think it was $5 then another $5 and another $3.
The prices are just outrageous.

Given that the government generally acts to protect the interests of ISP shareholders from the needs of the public, it's much more of a case that the ISPs control the government.

Much deeper problem than that, sadly. Captured political culture.

Very true. And then voters choose the Cons who promise easy answers but are even more captured and peddling stronger lies than the Libs.middleofnowhere wrote: ↑ Much deeper problem than that, sadly. Captured political culture.
The status quo persists because the existing regulatory frameworks provide exactly the kind of pro-shareholder regulation that our glorious elected officials want. The CRTC absorbs public criticism for industry price gouging, but the ultimate responsibility lies with successive elected governments who have refused to stop the industry from helping itself to our money.
There's an awful lot the federal government could do to lower prices, ranging form changing the CRTC's mandate to nationalizing the communications carriers. The feds just don't want to do it.

Same. It is getting expensive! 150/10 for $80. I am trying to stay and support small ISP! It may be a lost cause, soon.

I’m in the same boat. My friends are on 500Mbps or 1 Gbps with Bell or Rogers and paying less than what I’m paying TekSavvy for 150Mbps. Not sure why I’m too lazy to switch lol, but I’m going to have to seriously evaluate now.canada85000 wrote: ↑ I'm with teksavvy as well. Read my email about the price increase soon.
The good thing is my internet is stable all year long.
I want to switch as well like many of you have mentioned. But I prefer not to make a move while I'm still working from home. Sometimes switching will cause more problems and headaches.

With Rogers and Bell deals, you have to call back after 12 months, to get some kinds of deal. It can be a turn off. They are trying to kill off competition.

This. Rogers calls with a good price, but only for a year then it's back to the same price as teksavvy. I hated the one year game of cancel then (maybe) get another yearlong deal.

Same. I'll probably think about it soon. When I think about it, an increase of 2-3 bucks a month is actually not a lot (extra $40 bucks a year).

$40 extra per year is much less than deal game with Rogers/Bell after 12 months.
