Thoughts about Bell services

I’ve been on Rogers for about 15 years now, and my discounted package is expiring in March. I have tv,internet and home phone with them. I’ve been paying $138 every month. The lowest offer they are willing to work with me would be $159.99 +tax +installation fees (2 year contract). It seems like they don’t offer discounts anymore for long term customers or seniors.

Bell is offering;
FIBE TV - STARTER
FIBE 500 - INTERNET
HOME PHONE

All for $95+tax ($45 discount for 12 months)
Original price after discount $140
- Activation fee is $25, having waive all other fees.


I’ve had a bad past with Bell, having shot up prices like no tomorrow. Is the new Bell better than before? Should I stick with Rogers or move? Is Bell better than Rogers? What are your thoughts?

You have to realise that Bell never gives you an absolute price, but only a discount relative to the base price.
The base prices go up all the time. And this doesn't include their regular scheduled 'billing errors' that go in their favour 100% of the time.
What if there were no hypothetical questions?

I would not touch Bell Hell within a barge pole.

They tell you one price to draw you in then up the price once you have been suckered in.

Worst Company I have ever dealt with.

The fun only starts when you try and get satisfaction and call them. The biggest run around ever. Forget it if you expect to get satisfaction. They will keep transferring you to somebody else. Then goes round in a circle.
