Anyone know what the installation entails? Rogers tech got a flat tire and can't make it so had to reschedule. I tried plugging in modem but doesn't provision, I guess the tech has to do this?

Is this correct? Just wanted to make sure before completing signup.
120/10 speed
2yrs @ $29.98/month (I thought it was supposed to be $35?)
After 2yrs it's $39.98/month
Setup fee $59.99 including shipping.

Don't know why it says (monthly) at the end. Does it actually mean I pay $59.99/month?
I got the same email, I called and he explained that what you are seeing is the original price. You will get the 120/10 and the modem for the discounted price on your bill. If the don't come through, cannet offers 30 money back.

Tech came into check signal strength. If it's good he'll just provision and leave . Took 5 mins for him to check and said to plug in after 30mins

My tech was here right at 8AM which was nice. He just came in looked at the cable connected to the current modem. Then went outside to check something on the line that goes to the box on the house.

I'm pretty sure they have to activate it after the install in order for it to start working. It only took maybe 30 minutes after that for it to kick in.
So far so good.

On the Modemoutlet page, it says " All plans are Prepaid plans, NO Contract, NO Credit Check and Unlimited Usage", does that mean I have to prepaid 24 months of fee?

No, it means you prepay the next month service. So you signup Sept 1, you need to pay the month of Sept service before, not after the 30th

This is standard and I don't know provider who is not like this in telcom

Just signed up internet & home phone with Jessie...She was VERY HELPFUL! I got the Carrytel transfer discount however home phone was slightly more expensive than Carrytel rate. The internet upgrade though should more than make up for that Smiling Face With Open Mouth...You guys better sign up today though as previously mentioned: TODAY is the last day for this promotion...Thanks OP!

That is a hitron CDA-RES. Have the same modem. It is in fact a proper cable modem. It also randomly locks up a few times a month so I had to rig up a smart switch to reboot it automatically if it detects there isnt internet. Have fun.
That's an interesting solution. So, the switch is set to ping something external periodically, and if it can't after X amount of time, it cycles power? Which switch is this?

Also, is there any choice of Hitron models? I'm pretty sure I've seen the CDA3-something mentioned in the thread.

Using this switch, its cheap and hackable. I believe you can run custom firmware on it but I just run a nodejs server to intercept its communication to the cloud and run it from that.

This is the script: https://github.com/sandysound/orvibo-b25-server

every 5 minutes I ping 8.8.8.8 and 1.1.1.1 if I dont get a reply from both after 2 cycles it assumes the internet is down and sends a request to power off the switch, wait a few seconds then power it back on.

Did you have to email anything for the discount or just mention you were switching from carrytel ?
