[Bell] Bell Home Phone - be sure you are not on the 'legacy' plans..NO MORE TOUCHTONE charge
I know, you hate Bell....
But, I called today to cancel my MIL's phone at the home and go to Wind with a Link-to-cell Panasonic....
Bell offered me "Home Phone Lite" $14.97 + HST a month versus $31 approx. total I pay now. I hated the touchtone charge. An LD plan is required, but they have a 'free' one if you use no LD at all, and then it charges 2.95 a month ONLY IF YOU DIAL ONE LD CALL IN A MONTH... so.... she does not call LD at all (well, on purpose anyway)
12 month promo, but "Call back in 12 months and we'll talk".
So $30.57 total should drop to $14.97 X 1.13 = $16.91, saving $163 a year
I retain 911 service and avoid complication of change, old folks hate that.
So, check your elderly relatives' Bell home phone plans, they will not get a call to offer this for obvious reasons. I knew "Home Phone Lite" only as the way I reduced my 2 copper lines costs. They charged 39.95 and threw in 1200 LD minutes and a $5 credit but added 6.95 LD plan. This 14.97 is even better so now I have to call for myself. They will argue 1200 LD is worth the difference and that my well be. I found this year at 'renewal' time that having Fibe made the renewal of the deal almost automatic, no arguing at all.
The Wind free incoming on prepaid is a great offering though.
