Would have stayed with Rogers if they kept my price.

Fido modem isn't doing so well. Have reset it a few times, can't resolve a lot of sites, including RFD, while connected to it.

Raised a ticket with Fido already. Grr.

I mean this just sounds like a DNS issue. Have you tried setting your DNS server to use 1.1.1.1?

I ended up sign up with Fido from Rogers even though they offered almost matching the price with Fido except the Giftcard.
I talked to the agent over the phone and he said I'd get the giftcard but when I check my status on "myfidopromotions.com", my account wasn't even on the promotion. I registered myself, thanks to RFD!

I'd say check your promo status, if you just talked to the Rep over the phone..

BTW, how many days did people receive gift card after they sign up??

Well, #1 rule of IT Networking: It's always DNS.

Maybe it isn't on your end but it is the ISP's DNS server.

Thanks -- i am a sysadmin myself ;)

Fido guy said I can plug in my rogers modem to continue using while they fix it. However this morning Rogers stopped working. Called into Rogers they said as soon as I plugged in the semi-working fido modem --- Rogers service was cancelled. FML!

I just signed up for this. Called Bell first to see what they could do. I was at about $100/month for tv/internet/home phone and have been ready to cancel them all for a while, if a good internet-only deal came along.

Bell wouldn't do anything for me. The price for just internet would be regular retail, $90. After 8 years with them they were going to give no discount or attempt at retention. Told them thanks we'll call back in a few days to cancel.

Still not sure if my Bell Fibe was FTTH or FTTN but it was just a grandfathered 25/10 package so cable at 75 should be just as good I imagine.

Dowload speed on the 75/10 service is typically around 90 Mbps. It should be fine for your needs.

check your bills. i was charged $8 for the modem rental that they said was included in the price. support is terrible too. call center hangs up when you ask to speak to a manager, after the person who answers says they are a manager. it seemed so sketchy, like fido was hacked and i'm calling one of those scam call centers.
oh, crap, i believe you know. i haven't received my modem yet, just got my "statement" within 2 minutes after I activate my account, the numbers are all wrong, I signed up on 75M, they charged me for 150M, and modem rental which said included, now charge me $8 and mobilbe fee, i don't have any mobile phone with Fido.

I got a Freebie from Fido Xtra today for being a new customer. I can choose either second cup coffee / tea or $5 esso GC.

I am not sure whether this is related to my new mobile account or internet account. You only have 30 days to claim the freebie after receiving it...

But it doesn't hurt to check it out..

thanks. I got this offer. I got 150U with 37.5 and 100 bill credit. I asked to order the Fido internet at last Friday(Nov 30). I asked the agent about 100 visa GC this morning.. She mention that it is expired Dec 3. But after several minutes she said that she can give me 100$ credit into bill. that is great!

Do the math on your bills first to be sure. Fido list the "modem rental" as a separate item but it's really just part of the monthly plan price.

e.g. a $65/month 75M plan will be shown as $8 rental + $57 whatever.
