[Bell] Fibe 300 $17.50/M 1st year, $39.95/M ongoing, $59.99 activation fee (YMMV, condo/multi-dwelling)

Hello everyone,

I recently signed up for Bell 300 for an incredible deal, thought you guys might be interested. I just walked into a Bell store and signed up. I am located in downtown Toronto living in a condo.

The title sums it up. I pay $17.50/mth for first year and then $39.95/mth for ongoing. $59.99 activation fee applies.

You can see my bill that there is a $22.45 CR for 12 months which knocks down the $39.95 to $17.50 for the first year.

Beanfield Condo, extensively discussed in the Bell Retention on-going thread. Good to know, definitely a great deal but a big time YMMV.

Question: Do you have Beanfield in your condo? Might be a targeted offer.

Good news 1% of Canadians can get this! Bell oddly enough seems to be one the worst companies around. I been around Ontario and newer cities and older cities in Ontario can have 1Gps/Rogers but like 5 down Bell lol. Unless Bell is dominate outside of Ontario?

Fibe is the most stable internet atm. it is a direct cable line from your house to bell. Rogers is a shared network so your get unstable speeds.

Updated the title. Pretty good deal for a year but too bad there's that activation fee. What's Beanfield run a month anyways?

Beanfield is $50/mth for 250mbps. However, you have to pay $100 or ($8/mth rent) for their mandatory modem and $50 installation fee. That means the first year is already $62/mth. I love Beanfield but after doing the calculation, it makes sense to go to Bell .... for now.

$50 for 250/250 no bandwidth caps.

This is predatory pricing by Bell in specific condos that Beanfield has their network extended to.

Essentially if there's no competition, they will gouge and if there is they will undercut so they can't survive then proceed to regouge once the threat is gone

It definitely is but I'm sure it'll lure enough users over to them. A lot of people only care about the price and not so much the speed.

And the Activation Fee is not refundable.
I ordered 300M one during xMas period and was told my house only can do 50M by the technician who did the installation. The next day I cancelled it and got a bill of $128.
After long negotiation via phone, my current bill is $73, for 1 day usage.
