I was just offered 120 M for $34.98 plus tax for 2 years after $44.98 in Cogegoland from Cannet chat.
How is cannet vs carrytel in cogeco region?
I've had no issues with carrytel, Would cannet be the same?

I was also considering modemoutlet - 120mbps for $35 for 2yrs including free modem but $60 setup fee

Here's my experience with preparing for the switch ala requesting CanNet to cancel my existing service:

On phone with CSR ~

Me: Will you cancel my existing service
CSR: Who is your existing ISP
Me: Carrytel
CSR: In that case, no
Me: Just to confirm, your answer depended on who the existing ISP is..?
CSR: Yep and btw, we will be installing another line in parallel to the existing one so you can leave the first one active in case you need to revert
Me: Uhhh.....a second coax line???? I've never heard of that
CSR: Yep!
Me: .....Have a good evening *thinking the guy is nuts as I know there's just no way a Rogers tech is going to install a second line*

I then called Modemoutlet to clarify. The Modemoutlet guy explained that it's not a second physical line but a second account running on the same cable. He said that this is only possible when dealing with Rogers in the Ottawa area (note: minus Gatineau). As such, he says that for everyone in the Ottawa area, you can keep your existing service active and switch modems to compare if you want or you can even use a splitter to have bother active at the same time. I've never done it this way before but it makes sense that it's possible. Since they declined to cancel my Carrytel service, I'm just going to keep it running until after I've received the new modem and confirmed everything is working correctly - then I'll manually cancel my service with Carrytel.
Thanks for your input. I'm with Carrytel atm on their fibe network in chinatown area of Ottawa (very happy with the consistent speeds).. I used to be with Rogers a few years back and would have very unstable speeds, not sure if it's due to high congestion in my area or throttling but it was a terrible experience.

That being said, was there anyone in Ottawa, in the same area (chinatown/downtown) have experience with Cannet/Carrytel's cable line and how was your experience. I want to make the switch over from Carrytel 50fibe to Cannet's 300mbps cable line but am very skeptical. I'd also give Cannet a try if they have a trial period..not sure how that works with their installation fees though.

Thank you in advance to anyone that can give me advise

For those transferring from Carrytel, do you set up the installation date the same date as your Carrytel cancellation date?

I just chatted online with modem outlet and they suggested I do that. They said it is called a swap. Also, he said I need to make sure that Carrytel provides them with "transfer confirmation". I guess they are going to do the transfer on my behalf.

should be good with modemoutlet, you will get the deal from cannet.
I took the deal with CANNET. I'm from Montreal. The guy told me that if I'm with CARRYTEL I've just to send him the invoice and I'll half 50% off for the installation, so they charged me 34$ tx in
He told me that I'll receive the modem with Canada Post and the technician will come the 20th, hope that my IPTV will work

I can tell you my only complain about iptv is during peak hours which is between 7-8pm to 10pm, in the morning when my wife watch LCN\TVA no issue at all.

but my box isn't wired and i think with the upgrade from 30 to 120 all issues should be resolved.
Rogers Unlimited Province, 7gb $39/month! Thanks RFD!!

I'm also switching from CarryTel but they never told me that any technician will be on site. They said I'll just need to plug the new modem in on the switching date. CanNet rep told me that all I'll need to do is to call CarryTel and request cancellation for Sept 22nd(which is what I did), and plug in the new modem after that... that was it.... Not sure if there's something I've missed(?)

My only complaint with this ISP is that I suspect they throttle VPN torrent traffic.

When I'm torrenting my perfectly legitimate Linux ISOs normally, I think I get pretty good speed. When I turn on the VPN it drops to 1.5 MB/s tops, generally less. Doesn't seem to be the specific VPN's fault since I've tried two and they both had the same behavior. I can do a speed test with the VPN and I get excellent speed as long as it's not a torrent.

Maybe this is just par for the course, I don't know. I'm not a Linux expert.

I think that's just how the internet is through VPNs. I've tried Nord and PIA, both under-perform compared to without a VPN, it's just the price of using one IMO.

My previous ISP didn't do that, I think. There was the expected drop in throughput that all VPN traffic has, but not a seemingly enforced ~1.5 MB/s cap.

Maybe you're experiencing something different. As far as I can tell Cannet doesn't seem to throttle anything; my speeds are usually near the max even on wifi.

Hmmm I might end up going with this promo...

Rogers don't want to do any business with my pending renewal in Nov. They can't even match what I'm paying now 150u, $37.36/month.

Also got off with Fido chat and they can't do that promo that is posted in the other RFD thread, says its supposedly over.

Seems like this promo is the only one that's left....

Why does CanNet say that the $60 one time processing fee gets returned to the customer within 12 months $5 at a time, but modemoutlet says the fee is not returned? Why the difference between the two if they offer the same plan?

Cannet is $39.98, $60 processing fee refunded $5 at a time. I.e. $39.98 for 2 years guaranteed

Modem outlet is $34.98 $60 processing fee, no refund of processing fee. Equivalent to 39.98 for 1 year, after its 34.98 for 1 year (34.98 pricing guaranteed for 2 years)

That's how I understood it when csr explained to me my options when I asked about getting processing fee waived. I went with modem outlet plan
