[Rogers] YMMV Internet winback offer: 1Gbs plan for $34.95 for 12 months

I thought there'd be a post about this (and maybe there is, but I can't find it) but I got a call from the Rogers winback department to try and get me to switch my Internet service back. They offered 1Gbs down / 100Mbs up for $34.95 for 12 months, no contract.

I asked if there was a number I could call once I thought about it, and he said no, but might be worth looking into for those who used to be with Rogers.

Nice! It's written as 1Gbps by the way.

Bell screws me badly on the internet service bill. I am going to say goodbye to Bell. Waiting someone call me from Rogers. :twisted:

This has been posted but it’s buried in the Rogers retention deal megathread. You could also get 500u internet for $24.95/mo. for the same 12 mos.

It’s long been discussed in the ongoing Rogers thread, I think it is a win back offer, you have to be a Rogers customer and put on a cancellation date.

Damnnnnnnn.

Just canceled with Bell (again) today (that's 2x cancellations in 2 weeks with Bell....).

Signed up with Virgin two weeks ago but Bell offered me a good deal on all my services if i continued with them instead. Took it, but they were not able to send out a technician within a reasonable timeframe. Been stuck with their crappy internet that's not able to support all the devices in the house for the past two weeks... And the earliest they could set me up for was Jul 8, even though I agreed on Jul 1, and then Jul 4....

So now I'm freshly canceled. This time, it's all my services. Also filed a complaint.
I'll try to leverage this promo in my discussions (I know it's Rogers only, but will see if I can get them to match).

I saw 1GB and thought we rolled back to the early 2000's again lol
When given enough time, all threads on RFD can and will go off on a tangent.

So what would I have to say to even get this offered to me? Tell them I want to cancel my internet with them?

well, being a bit pedantic, it (1 Gbps) is bandwidth; Speed itself would be more related to latency.

I guess it's easier to advertise it as speed, and in the end you're actually getting stuff faster. But it's rather like having a ton-of-lanes highway, than an higher speed limit highway. if you're just travelling on 1 car (or transferring 1 bit) speed itself would be the same.

This deal is very postal code restricted as it is to compete with Bell FTTH I believe!

Okay okay, I fixed it. Sorry - I actually knew that but had a total collapse of my mental capacities. I blame the heat.

ahahaha, "speed" of data transfer is definitely how fast you can transfer 1 bit. speed in this context means rate of transfer. i suppose you can have a higher speed limit on your highway (i.e. increase speed of light constant and make electrons go faster) but that's not how it's typically done.
