After your install I would call to upgrade to 150Mbsp, or figure out now why they want $35 out of your for 75Mbps. Get your money's worth.

I set up someone with 50Mbps for $15 & they are getting 65Mbsp. You can change your bracket at any time. I would check that price though. No point in overpaying.

You can check the availability at your address here https://www.rogers.com/web/consumer/internet Maybe they do not have the speed in your area.
I've been on 150 here for years. We have up to Ignite Internet Gigabit (1 Gbps down) in this area. Damn, just noticed that is $119. I could have been having some fast internet for only a few dollars more. Paying $108/month now so anything is better.

edit: just got another email with a pdf and it does say 150

I'm on ODSP, and my building is a partner.
When I applied to sign up this week, they did say they have a cheap TV option.

Question - what router do they use for this the internet service?

Just to rephrase and see if I understand this correctly, all they did was change an admin policy to make connect for success more than a standalone program. They will now allow TV, or an existing TV account, to be added to the connect for success account but no "discount" on the TV. Did I understand correctly? If so, then I wonder about any advantage to do this. If TV is on your connect for success account will you loose your ability to negotiate with retention? As annoying as that annual song and dance is, it was still a tool to get TV discounts.

Thanks for looking into this. I like to add more if I may. This is cheaper than anything offered to new customers or retentions which makes it more palatable (price wise) but I like to bring up a few items to those considering Rogers Ignite TV or switching away from digital. If you want the American channels you have to pay an extra $3 for the U.S. “theme” pack. I’m guessing the 1st box is still free but all subsequent boxes have to be rented, there is no purchase option. I hear the box rental increased to $10/month.

I know a few members mentioned it's not an issue to install at a different address than the one on the letter (mailing address).

Where would we specify the installation address in the application? On the website the method to apply under GIS, is to email name and number only with the T4A(OAS).

Also the letter of authorization states:
"Internet will be installed at the address on the proof of assistance."

Are you still getting the increase and are you getting it at consistent speeds or burst speeds and then dropping?

Yes, I'm still getting steady 200-280Mbps (knock on wood). Tested by downloading 4 different size of files.
