i did and it is available. What modem would be included in the package? It's a bit cheaper than rogers. Any chance it will drop on boxing day?

Whatever modem they decide to send you. You may get the modem used currently by Rogers (a white CODA-4582) or older one not used for Rogers customers.

I don't think there will be a better deal than the one currently offered by Wireless Wave. 50% off regular rates for 12 months and $50 in-store credit.

You could get the same promotion through Fido chat without the store credit.

Fido is the same at Rogers. Same network. Same COAX cable coming from the street into your house.

Any change it will drop on Boxing Day? ANYBODY HAVE A CRYSTAL BALL TO HELP???

Pickup the phone and call Bell and ask them.

I left Rogers after 25 years. I had their Gigabit Internet + Popular TV Cable Package paying $150 taxes in ... said I wanted only Gigabit and they only offered it at Rack Rate (absolutely no discounts).

So I picked up the phone and called Bell and they offered me their Bell Fiber 1.5Gbps Internet for $59.95+HST .. no contract, no installation/activation fees ... price is guaranteed until I change the package.

Called bell and they don't offer the speed around my area. I am on the same boat as you ignite bundle and only offer stock price with no discount. Fido is now 50% off so sign up and will see.
