[Bell] $49.95 Gigabit Fibe No Activation Fees YMMV

Hi,

Bell offered me $49.95/mth Gigabit Fibe as a new customer through their online chat. Waived activation fees and modem rental fees. I'm located in downtown Toronto. Confirmed that it's an ongoing discount and not just for first year.

Initially I was looking at 150 mbps internet. They offered 59.95/mth. Told them Rogers was offering $49/mth and they offered me 150 mbps for $49.95. Then they also told me there's a flash deal today where they upgrade 150 mbps to Gigabit fibe.

Enjoy!

Edit: YMMV based on location

It's common deals to people who live in condos in downtown area.

I am a Bell existing customer and was on their 500u $50/m Internet. It was just expired and the price increased to $99. I called in yesterday and was only offered $10 discount.

Actually go through an activation with Rogers and Bell will likely call you before your Rogers activation date to give you a winback offer. Asking Bell directly for a discount almost never works.

It hurts seeing these deals while knowing I’m paying $78 for 150 with teksavvy just to support the little guy and net neutrality.

I was on cable with Teksavvy - had to give up and go with Bell. Couldn't fix issues with Rogers network and wfh covid can't tolerate bad internet.

I went with Fido for their 1 yr discounted 150mb plan for $45 and my average speed is 300mbs. I'm looking forward to calling Bell when the time comes around

Any suggestions?

Wish I could get in on the deal, but Fibe to the Home is basically non-existent unless you live in a condo.

Sucks for people living in detached but I guess you win some, you lose some.

Have an upvote anyways, since it is a hot deal (for people that can take advantage of it)!

Me too. Being the "Little Guy" and not giving a good service doesn't work for me. I dumped Teksavvy and went to Virgin who is basically a subsidiary of Bell.

OP likely lives in a Condo that has Bell, Rogers, Beanfield and/or Fibrestream. Super common to never pay full price as long as you live there. Too much competition.

I live in a detached home in Toronto and have gigabit Fibe. I don't think it's as uncommon as you think but agree you're at the mercy of whenever they roll out the service to your area.
$50/month (no contract?) is as good as it gets I think for gigabit Fibe.

Nice! Is it a new build? If I had access to it I would jump on Gigabit Fibe for $50, seeing as I'm paying $60 for Roger's fake Gigabit (Gigabit down, but only 30 mbps up).

Fibe is available for plenty of detatched homes but the speeds available depend on how old the specific area in question are. My parents who live 5 mins from me can only get 150mb fibe where as i can get 1.5gb, both detatched houses but built in different years.
