I called customer support, used the menu to go to disconnections, and kindly asked the agent to see if I could go from 500 mbps @ $120 to 1.5 gbps @ $50 and she checked and said I was eligible for the promotion since I was a loyal customer (my account isn't that old) and then made the switch for $49.99 + tax (really it is a $75 credit for 12 months). This was for Kitchener by the way.

1.5gb down, 50mbps upload.... Pass!
Rogers called me and offered this same plan for $65/month and said it's FTTH. Sure it is, but then coaxial to the router. What a gimmick.

Sticking with my Bell fiber!

It's actually less than $49.99. I just got the bill. It will start this rate next billing cycle and it's only $29.99+tax. Maybe they currently have the promotion or something? I wanted to call them to negotiate the new price because Bell is installing 1.5 fiberoptic in our building next week. I think they know and called me to offer me this deal, I didn't even have to call them

update: I just want to correct my post earlier. $29.99 is only for one month :(. After that it would be $49.99 for 24 months. The modem I have is smartstream (for my ignite TV earlier) so I don't need to get a new modem. Despite it advertises 1.5Gb or 2.5Gb, I could only get up to 900Mb, and that was from wired connection

I am paying $50+tax for 500 Mbps which has been roughly the same throughout the past 3-4 years without major hikes. is there a risk that if I move to this 1.5 Gbps plan, they will only honor for 1 year and then provide no other discount afterward? I'd rather keep the $ I am paying low than to get more speed if its risky. what do you guys think?

I am currently still using the Gigabit modem, and the Rogers premier package (not ignite tv) if I get them to give me the 1.5 Gigabit for $49.99 will they force me to change my tv over to ignite tv? Or is this a separate thing?

Don’t get greedy, stick with what you got unless your needs require higher speeds. Lol don’t give up your good situation for something iffy for a year… like the Toronto raptors

Went and chatted this morning,
Cambridge, Ontario

Every year i fight to get the same promo - Gigabit for 64.99
Bell fibe stops 1 block short of my house so rogers is never inclined to do anything more for me. I mentioned this thread and the average of 1.5gb for 44.99 but they didnt care. best the could do was Same price im paying now and bump me up to 1.5gb
I took the offer as it was as good as it gets. The day fibe gets to my door step I will be cancelling my rogers account immediately out of sheer spite from years of Gouging me because they could.

Is rogers switching your modem when you get the 1.5gbps package? Their website says wifi6e for that package but my current xb7 modem is only wifi6.

Called twice, tried messenger chat and the best was $80 + tax for 500Mbps. Tried Rogers chat this morning and the person was much nicer. They tried $80 + tax and I asked for something better and they gave me $60 for 500Mbps. Not as good as others are getting, but we don't have bell fibre yet so I take what I can get.

They will definitely jack up the monthly service fee if you go to upper speed tier. If I were you, I would stay in that speed provided that I don't feel the current speed limits my needs. The only down side is that you are now paying the price tag for a service which is currently the same as Rogers 1.5Gb service for some. You should find out, within your postal code, is there anyone who has the same or higher speed as yours with lower monthly fee or not? If so, you can negotiate to pay less when the time comes to renew your current deal.

Also, see if Bell 1.5Gb or 3Gb service is within your residential area. If so, find your residential building Bell rep and ask for their promotion and their monthly service price fees. If there is Bell fiber service and the prices are reasonable & you are in Rogers territory, you may have upper hand to get the service that you want at the fraction/lower cost.

Just play your card wisely. :)

I do this…run it through my own router. At some points I’ve been getting 600mb/s on my 150u plan. Usually it’s around 300 though…

They’ve slowly been increasing my price and I’m at $65/mo now. Starting to shop around…

Telmax seems intriguing…not the lowest price but generally a decent price vs Bell/Rogers. Not at their promo levels but lower then their normal pricing. They aren’t everywhere but it is their own fiber. Liking the idea of supporting a new fiber player…only way we’ll ever get real competition to drive prices down, increase loyalty on pricing and improve service levels.

You can simply tell them that you don't want that Ignite TV as a added bonus to your service. :)
