This would be hot except for this little sentence here "Prices may change during subscription."

I find that statement is there for many ISP providers. However, regardless of the base price changing, the 33$/m discount would still apply for 10 years.

I was looking at this as well, think it's a good deal for those of us that are not in a Rogers serviced area. I'm unable to find a good service at a decent price.....I've had CANNET which is good right up until Prime Time (6PM-Midnight) where they throttle speed down to 3Mb and even worst, they don't admit to it. Start.ca is a good service, however prices have increased. Teksavvy prices have skyrocketed and i believe the 120Mb service is $87. Just had Acanac installed yesterday for $20/Month (DSL 50/10).....working at advertised speeds so far, the upload originally capped at 3mb however
A quick call to technical support resolved it and it’s now at 10mb upload.

However back to Cogeco....for $80 you get Gigabit Internet and if prices do change, I assume they will come down in price, however if they do increase you're not locked in. Will strongly consider it here in the Halton Region should I have any issues with the Acanac $20 service. Good find OP! Thumbs up

Yeah I’ve been trying to figure this out, for me it’s a good deal because I’m paying $75 for 100mbps with Start. That said, the sentence where they say they can change price at any time, has me concerned the price won’t stay that way.

Im with currently with teksavvy... they also raised prices recently for 120Mbps from 77/m to 88/m plus modem cost.

Even with Bell, they also state "Available to new residential customers in select dwellings in Ontario, where access/technology permit. Subject to change without notice; not combinable with other offers. Taxes extra. Customer must opt to receive paperless billing. Price is subject to increase during your subscription."

Yeah I felt stupid asking them, but because it wouldn’t surprise me these companies pulling some shady tricks, I had to ask them whether that tied a customer into a 10 year contract as I couldn’t find the part about being able to cancel at any time lol

its their commitment to us for the discount. There is no contract, if they increase their prices, we can cancel.

Correct, you can cancel at anytime according to CSR I spoke to. if I jump on this, I’ll be checking the fine print on the docs they send through to make sure there isn’t some shady catch, and that info was in fact wrong.

"Guaranteed savings of $33.00/month for 120 months" -- the discount is guaranteed, not the base price ;)

Anything for the current customers, paying $113+taxes currently. The fine print says “ These offers are limited to new customers and past customers who cancelled all of their services more than 6 months ago.”

CRTC ruling allows customers to cancel without any penalty, if the service provider makes changes to your plan.

You can always go back to start if price increases?

This promo is tempting. Anybody switched already?

Took the plunge, we're paying $6 less per month to get way less from Teksavvy. Doing self install, modem should be here on Monday. The rep was up front about potential price changes and we'll just move back to Start or Teksavvy if they do so.

Hello,
I am looking at changing as well. In my area, Rogers is not available so for first tier providers is either BELL or Cogeco. I am currenly with CANNET but as a gentleman mentioned earlier, they do throttle during the evenings.
So I am tempted to get this but I have my own equipment that I want to keep using, specifically my PFSENSE router and UNIFI switch.
Does anybody know what kind of modem/router is the one they provide and if setting up in bridge mode is doable? is it easy to set up without losing any speed?
I was looking at BELL as well as they have promotion going for Black Friday but setting their modem to work with a third party router sounds like it's a pain.
Thanks for any advice.
