Bell fibre price increase

Hey, so I just signed up with bell in September. I was with Rogers for ten years prior to that. I recieved my second bill today and noticed they are increasing my internet by $5 a month as of February 1. I'm shocked to see this considering I just signed up. I never experienced this with Rogers, however I did have to renegotiate a price every year. Is everyone getting this price increase? Or is this one of their slimey tactics they do to new customers who are on a promotion price?

Standard operating procedure for bell. Lure you with a big discount, then raise your rates. Looks like they suckered you. That's why I stick with 3rd party resellers.
If the women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy.

I had a Bell sales guy going down my street recently and that's what I told him.

Should've reported him for going door to door, that's not legal in Ontario now.

Believe it's legal for telecom. Following is a list of banned product for door to door sale:
Air cleaners
Air conditioners
Air purifiers
Duct cleaning services
Furnaces
Water filters
Water heaters
Water purifiers
Water softeners
Water treatment devices
Bundles of these goods and services

Good to know... they may have been exploiting a 'loophole' since they guy was only talking to people who happened to be outdoors on that day. He wasn't actualy door-knocking.
I just happened to be out front at the time.

Bummer, I thought only charities could still go door to door. Bell/Rogers must've lobbied heavily to be allowed.
