Are the receiver and modem included? Available in Toronto?

Is it possible to just test the router I will use, without hooking up the modem at all? To figure out the range and best location for it. It's a D-Link Ultra AC3200.

Also curious, if anyone knows, can the router use a secured friendly neighbours wifi (rather than ethernet cable), then redistribute that wifi through the router? Hope I'm explaining that correctly. In other words, using the router as a wifi extender.

you just won't have an Internet connection, but you can test your LAN connection speed and range without the modem

if your neighbour's wifi signal strength is good enough and within range, you can setup your router as an access point and extend his network into your home, however keep in mind there would be speed degradation depending on a number of factors

for stability and better speed, i've seen neighbours literally run a patch cable home-to-home through windows to share Internet; it's ghetto, but works lol

I'm late to the party, but my Bell Fibe deal expired and rolled over to regular pricing so I'm looking to leave for something more affordable.. Would definitely be a new customer, never used any Fido services before.
What's my best method to sign up? Online chat still? Much appreciated

Online chat or phone doesn't matter, they are giving this deal away to everyone. If you have trouble just hang up and call another agent.

Sounds about right (5 days / 30 days * $45 ) + $45 + tax ?

OK I just got off the phone with Bell, the guy's trying to claim I'm receiving a significant discount already for the Bell Fibe 500 Unlimited internet. Says regular price $100.95+tax and I'm only paying $73+tax or something like that.. The internet IS good but the listed deal here is still much cheaper.. I'm not sure what to do

you waited until it is expired before looking into this??? Cancel with bell first. Then see if their retentions contacts you and offers you a similar or better deal. Then check with fido.

Not that easy for everyone. Tried chat 3 times and phone once. Each time it was student only.

I had to contact Fido 6 times over a mix of phone and chat to get this deal. Chat finally worked after I connected with a rep from Vancouver. I just told him I heard about this deal from a friend who got it. I was on Rogers before and there was a little bit of an issue with that but I got it done. Super nice rep. Just keep persistent. You'll get it.
