got $39.99 for 500 internet.

I was paying ~$91 tax included for same internet + premier tv package. got rid of tv package. chat gave terrible offer. called retention and they gave terrible offer at first and then the above offer and i took it. i'm sure i could've declined that as well and had a better deal but i just didnt wana bother wtih it anymore.
40$ for 500u is around the feelgood,don't wanna bother anymore price! those lucky sobs who got gigabit for 20 bucks tho! ymmv of course

If we agreed to a certain monthly rate for a year, shouldn't they be obligated to charge the same amount for the duration of the term? If the price of the service increased, the discount should be increased to offset the difference to maintain the same price until the end of the term I would think
I believe the loophole is that these are not contract plans and we're free to cancel at anytime.

Somewhat tied to what @vkizzle said
The loophole is actually that you agreed to a fixed discount. I've had that argument many times, unfortunately.
"We don't have contracts. you have a fixed discount for 12 months, however you're free to cancel at any time"
They're free to change the base price of the plan.

1st and 2nd attempts: web chat - best offer was $45/500U or $55/1GB
3rd attempt - zedd solutions (they phone me) - best offer $60/1GB
Final attempt - Rogers CS phone - asked to match my current plan, and they did $30/500U for 12 months.

Located in Richmond hill, single detached house.

Good luck everyone!

Can someone explain me why we can't have those same deal in Quebec from Videotron ? Are we in an internet cartel ?

Seems like people are getting so caught up chasing the highest speed for cheapest price. I just came from a 300mb/s Fibe plan, the new house I bought doesnt have fibe, so I've been searching around. I don't game, just simply stream netflix/youtube, in my mind I cant justify needing anything over 50mb/s. Can't understand why a small family needs anything more than 500mb/s AT MOST. crazy.

I'm in a similar situation. I used to game a lot more when I was younger and at back at home. I figured that if I go from 75mbps regular cable to 500u ignite that slowdown from congestion and peak hours wouldn't be an issue any more.

Cancelled in hopes retention will make an attempt to even give a half decent deal :(
Tried to get the 19.99 deal off of a chat (currently an existing customer)
rep would not budge, I called their bluff and said fine please cancel my internet for the end of the month...

got a call back from CS after a couple hours lol
they offered me 29.99 before tax for 500U, 1 year fixed discount. NO HESITATION.

and my contract for the original 29.99 deal had expired in march so I negotiated to keep it relatively cheap at 34.99 before tax.

i'll take it, especially since it extends the time i have to renegotiate with these clowns again...
savings are savings from these bloodsuckers.

Yeah, that makes sense. Im gonna try out start.ca and see how that goes. At least no contract, so easy to swap if needed.

I guess you haven't read the entire thread?
No one is chasing the higher speeds per se, considering an in-market plan from a competitor such as Carrytel for 75/10 is $39.99.
If it's crazy to get a higher speed plan for a lower cost, then call me crazy!

Please dont take offence to it. All im saying, is obsessing and spending hours on the phone to bring your speed up from 500u to 1gb for the same price or a touch more isn't necessary for 99% of people. Its just our hoarding culture desiring more. Trust me im one of them, just saying if you have semi decent pricing now, just leave it. Promo pricing term extension on the other hand is of course beneficial.

I took me 10min via chat, in which most of the time was waiting for the rep to update their system for me to renew my Gigabit plan at $34.99.

I'm in Scarborough and managed to only get 300u ignite for $44.99 yesterday, that was with retention and they won't budge further. Anyone have better success for my area? Thanks.
