$90! - UltraFibre 1Gig Unlimited (120 Months) (NEW PRICE)

Deal Link:
Price:
90
Savings:
26.5
Expiry:
December 31, 2021
Retailer:
Cogeco
For a limited time, get UltraFibre 1Gig Unlimited for 120 Months (10 Years) guaranteed discount of $26.5

Cogeco changed their pricing and it went up :(

Valid for new or previous customers who had canceled their service longer than 6 months ago.

I am wondering if this is a godsend for Niagara-Hamilton Area. We don't have any legit competition and this seems like a steal from my current deal ($70 for 60 mbps)

EDIT: edited to clarify the nature of promo.
EDITED 2: They dropped the price again!
EDITED 3: They raised the price :(

same here. On one hand, I like the idea that I have 1 gig download speed for less than $100....On the other hand, I have nothing to compare this to....

This deal worked for my brother (Milton, Ontario). However its NOT $85 for 120mo. It's a $28 discount for 120mo (the discount is guaranteed, the total price is not).

There is a $20 self install fee, but the modem rental is free, and activation is waived.

Cogeco’s preemptive strike to combat FTTH installs.

It’s 1000/30. I got it in November when it was $80 guaranteed for 10 years. I’m getting 900/30 consistently on speed tests, wired connection. I have their router in bridge mode, using dual Asus routers in Ai-Mesh w/ Ethernet backhaul. No issues with it, connection is solid.

I will still jump ship to symmetrical 1000/1000 as soon as it’s available.

Back on topic. Is this FTTH and offers the same upload speed?

I like that UltraFibre means not at all Fibre. (except I guess in "certain areas of Burlington and Oakville")

Just like Bell's "Fibe" doesn't mean fibre either.

A little more frequently than 3-4 years..pretty much every year you're guaranteed some sort of increase even if its a buck or two...

Just FYI not sure if this is still an issue BUT! I had this internet for 6 months and had to change. After daily calls about internet dropping about 30x times a day I finally got someone to tell me the issue. They don't have the correct firmware for their network and it is UNSTABLE. I was advised to switch to 250mbps as it wasn't the fibre. No issues since.

Thanks for the info.

In my opinion 30 up is unacceptable when they are running 1 gig into the house.

Solid deal still though, I pay $85 for 100/100 FTTH but they are a local company in our small city that literally ran their own fibre lines through all the neighbourhoods so no renting/reselling incumbent lines. And lawd knows I'd rather pay this small company rather than Bell, Rogers, Cogeco.

What do you mean? "Fibe" is a completely different word, no relation at all to "Fibre" I'm not sure why you would think that. Clearly Bell wouldn't do that and potentially mislead people Face With Rolling Eyes

Upload speed is a limitation of the coax system

You will not get higher than 30mbit upload over cable, Rogers is the same speed. For faster upload you need FTTH which most don’t have
