Called in today for my parents. Currently on 82.99 1gbps.

Talked to front line rep, transferred me to cancellations, lady there offered me 500u for 49.99 for 12 months.

Told them to schedule cancellation for a week later.

Now to sit back and cross my fingers for a better winback deal.

Got it for $74.99/month, which is about $2 more than I was paying for 150u. So I took that. I'm in London, N5X area.
This is the price tag of same promo service for students.Seems London has no chance in getting this deal.

I know a rep in London that sold me a similar hot deal. I don't even live in London, but he was still able to sign me up Face With Tears Of Joy

The key is to find a rep that is allowed to offer this deal, such as someone assigned to an area that has Bell FTTH or a multi-dwelling building.

EDIT: assuming you are a new customer.

Called several times with no luck. The Rep referenced this thread and said that the offer is mainly for people in condos.

Was able to get 500u internet/pvr box with around 40 channels/home phone for 2 yrs no contract 74.99/m +tax

Went through facebook chat.
They said I qualified "based on" postal code....

Got a follow up call and was offered it at 29.99, claimed 24.99 promo price is over....
Still a better deal than my furrent fido 75/$35 deal....waiting for modem delivery now.

I was able to get $24.99 plan from Rogers. I called up CX and asked for a plan stating I have an active Smart Home Monitoring Account. I was offered a 74.99$ plan. After a day I went online and had a chat with an agent for 25$ plan and was told it does not exist. Next day I got a call for the win back offer. I do not think I ever had any rogers account for internet.

The router they supply on the 500u is absolutely terrible. The guy said its the best they have and one floor up right around the corner its getting barely 20mbps when wired I see 450mbps. Looking at the dbm I can't believe how weak the connection is maybe 8m away.

Well,if this is true,pm me that rep address.Someone in few pages back told that he is in London and got that deal at his first attempt from a rep in person.When I asked to pm me that rep,he flew!
19 attempts failed for me.Gave up!

I don't feel comfortable giving away the rep's info, and they probably aren't allowed to go around browsing RFD to find people to sell internet to.

The rep got in touch with me about two weeks after I live chatted with sales to ask for a deal on 500u. If Rogers has your phone number and you aren't a current customer, then I suggest you play the waiting game for a bit. Maybe they will call you.

You are misunderstood.No one is going to say that:"hey,I am a RFD member and one other member gave your info!"
Rogers doesn't have my phone number,nor I am their customer!
If you don't feel good about it,simply say it.But don't play around the bush,please!

does rogers throttle/shape torrents nowadays?
do they impose upload limit against, or terminate, 'extreme' users, whatever that may be?
