For anyone wondering I've been with Cannet since 2017, no issues apart from times where there's outages for Rogers (I think that's who they're selling down from), other than that it's been a non-issue. No random fees, no upcharges or calls at all. Perfect for me since I was paying the same price.
Any slowdowns during peak times?

I haven't noticed any and I'm quite a heavy user I'd say. Data hoarder at about 45TB and counting.

Yup, there is zero requirement or obligation for new isp to and they don't do it

Just like you can ask for free service and they may give it to you. Will it happen? No

Everything I've stated is correct as per provided link. Just like saying based on the legislation, you can get service for free if isp agrees. Will it happen? No

I'm pragmatic and telling what happens. You have to call and cancel yourself. Just like you will have to pay and not get it for free even when you may get it
Ahhhhhhh ok. I must have imagined it the numerous times different ISPs have done it for me over the last 10 years.

Over the phone they will only do $39, because there's a mandatory +$5 for modem rental and +$5 for router rental. What did you get quoted on?

I think you're right. Those were extra. And chat disconnected before I had a chance to clarify exactly that.

So to confirm, only modem is mandatory? And you can buy it?

Thanks,

I told them I was using my own router and they waived the $5 router charge.

I switched from the 150/15 plan to the 300/20 with Cannet and got a real shock when I checked my online account today. It shows the regular price of the plan at 99.98 per month, and me receiving a $10 discount on that, meaning I would pay 89.98 per month plus tax. I just had a chat with support; the guy says online it will show only the regular price, but I will still be charged the 39.98 that was agreed to over the phone when I made the switch. They said they will send me an email to confirm my discounted pricing. This sounds more than a little fishy to me.

When I chatted online, I specifically asked for email confirmation of pricing. The guy straight away sent me the email when the chat was ended.

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.

That is correct. You can have two internet services running on cable simultaneously with each having its separate modem. You can try each one out and see which better fits your needs.
