EPP and BYOD only.
$45 connection fee.

Let me warn you right now;

If you have to make a deal with one of the three Prime Evils, do not make a deal with Bell.

Edit: In this case, Bell does have a typo in there, I think it should say kbps not Mbps. 512 Mbps, that would be amazing. But I am pretty sure it's a non-enforceable typo.

I might be out of the loop on this, but if I’m reading correctly, they say first 20GB is full-speed, after 20GB is capped at 512Mbps ??

Wasn’t it used to be capped at like 128Kbps ??

512Mbps is faster than my home internet lol

Edit: and if so, thats means it’s virtually unlimited given current 4G LTE, 64MB/s is extremely overkill for any day-to-day task one could do on a cellphone, including streaming i. 4K.

Edit 2: looked around the web, everything points to it being a typo

It’s been my experience that they ALL suck more than a 50 h.p. Shop vac.

What’s the issue with them?

Been with them on EPP for the past 1+ year, no issues.

Seems like people always got issues with carriers and try to politicalize it

They will either raise your price without warning, or give you random charges here and there if you aren't checking or careful with your bill.

Bell has made more billing "mistakes" (it's not a mistake when you have to call in every month for being overcharged) and has treated me way worse than Telus or Rogers. I avoid them as much as I can.

If you haven't had an issue with Bell, then you're more likely the exception than the norm.

They’re famous for raising prices regularly

And good luck with any loyalty promotions, even if you've been with them for years with 0 late payments

Why the downvote? For people like me that are on Bell EPP, this is a great deal! I can save quite a bit on my monthly bill. Anyway, thanks OP!

update:
This is only for new activation. They won't be able to add it to existing customers. Sigh~~

EPP is a vastly different world compared to consumer retail.

Bell is by far the worst. I think about 2 hours a month was spent on price adjustments and disputing over billing charges when I was with them for Internet and TV. I got familiar with some of the Filipino call centre agents on the other end. BTW this was about 5 years ago and will never ever switch to Bell after those experiences.

Will credits drop off the plan after like they do with the Rogers one?

I think the Rogers $50 20/GB plan becomes $60 after 24 months. (

Maybe they just hate you?

In the 10 years or so I've had a cell phone I've never had the price raise from the contract date till the end. Not have there ever been so called random charges.

Consider yourself lucky. My parents, sister and in laws over the past 15 years have all received surprise price hikes, as recently as last January.

Just switch to Telus or Rogers. This is the website for Telus to check if you can get it: https://evs.telus.com/evs/

So guess your parents, sister and in laws should be calling to get credit for it then. They can't just raise the price without notice.

I had a $45 ongoing credit on my internet for as long as I kept it for a missed tech visit and no notice of price increase along with the one time credit of $60 to cover the year of increase.

They probably should. But to make a point, the downvotes on this thread are mostly due to “poor merchant reputation” and “Bad service”. So your comment aligns with the downvotes.

I've been on a Bell EPP plan for years now and haven't had any issues. Have I had price hikes? Sure, but I've also had hikes on my Rogers services at home. I've also never not been informed that my services would increase in price, whether it be via email or on my bill. I question if many of you actually review your bills and read them?
