my 500u 37.99 just expired

live chat offered 500u 59.99 turned it down

now I have to call and cancel then hopefully they counter with a 39.99-42.99 500u price.

this will be my 3rd year playing this game

started 500u 32.99
2nd year 500u 37.99
hopefully 500u 42.99 this year seems reasonable

I lived in the US for many years. Always had to play this game between AT&T and Verizon. May be it's a North American thing Face With Tears Of Joy

True that. Once you experience fiber to the house, it's impossible to go back on copper wires. Even at a lower price, I wouldn't switch back to Rogers, and I had no issues with them in 15 years of service. I am sure Bell knows that too when I try to negotiate my upcoming pricing next year. Roger just needs to up their infrastructure.

so, for people with Bell, do you need to do the same trick every year to get a better price? I was offered a few time with Bell, but I never make the move so I danced with Rogers every year.

Dancing with Rogers annually is a headache… I started with 29.99 ffs… now I’m at 39.99
I probably didn’t need it but bought it anyway

Yeah I just switched to bell… I’m paying considerably more, $74.95+tax no modem or install fee 1gb down and 750mbs up and I am really feeling the speed difference. I didn’t go back to rogers even with this price.

What speeds are you good folks getting on the 500u? 800dl? Sucks to do this dance yearly really. I also do it for my folk's place with Fido. Just sticky the price and keep the contented customer. ffs.

I to had to play the annual price game with both Bell and Rogers for years, I went to Teksavvy and have not looked back. While they are not perfect and have recently increased their rates, they still have the best deal on high speed internet cable or slower DSL services. No fiber yet but I'm sure they're working on it.

They are great to work with and they don't send out surprise monster bills when "the promotion you were on has expired" and now you're on a regular plan. I can't believe they think this is a sustainable business model.


Those annual billing arguments I really don't miss.

I am planning to make the switch to bell after years of song and dance with Rogers.
Bell offered me 1 gbps for 49.99. (124.99-75.00). The 75.00 they offered was not time sensitive and permanently on my account (so they say), so no more yearly threat to cancel with Rogers. Obviously they said if regular price goes up, your price will go up.

Added $10 dollars for fibre tv + 1 year of crave.

I cancelled my internet since they weren't willing to give me any discounts anymore, despite having Fibre competition from Bell. Still waiting on a call back or an email and haven't had any luck...

So that’s pretty much my story. Rogers always gave my parents crap rates for mobility and internet cause they are at a location without fibe and quote on quote from rogers “no competition”.

So I cancelled my mobility and my parents, went to bell for $50/m unlimited 20gb data per line, cancelled my internet for bell. So rogers called. I declined for my home but tbh eh extended this offer to my parents place which I took cause my parent’s can’t get fibe

what deal did Bell offer you?
I got $75+tax for 1gb down from bell. Good for 1 year. Couldn’t get it directly from bell, basically a 3rd party seller for bell service. It’s still a direct account with bell.

Call the win back number and give it a shot. In the past for my rogers mobility I cancelled and never got winback call, but someone posted on rfd and they still offered it to me cause they saw I had a cancelled account.

I won’t lie, rogers was acceptable with speeds but I do admit switching to bell is a lot faster … same 1gb down but bell is stable 600-800mbs down (actual speed test) whereas rogers always varied from 300-700 depending on the time of the day/night
