Free install on all internet plans for new customers ($99.95 value ON & QC)

Deal Link:
Savings:
100%
Offer valid for all internet plans where Bell, Cogeco or Videotron is the underlying network provider. I check with them and it was implied they could honor this for current customers switching internet mediums (Cable->DSL & vice versa).

all internet plans where Bell, Cogeco or Videotron is the underlying network provider.

This is even cheaper if you already have the relevant equipment.

I was with them and never had any issues. However, I'm fairly technical and have never had serious technical issues with any of the 8+ Internet Service Providers I've been with, so take that with a grain of salt. With that said, why would you go with a second tier provider when going directly with Bell or Rogers or what have you will cost the same or cheaper? Yes, CHEAPER, by going direct as they always have deals through one of their sales reps who frequent RFD. Just do a search for the Bell or Rogers threads.

BTW, yes, I am aware some people have a hate for Bell and Rogers, so if that's you, go with the third party provider. Otherwise, you're better off getting it from whomever provides the lower price.

Their Internet service is fine, but their TV is awful.

Good point! I tried their TV service as well and feel I totally wasted my money buying their TV box.

Bell and Rogers are ALWAYS more expensive (of course they will catch you first with "deal"), examples?
25Mbps bell - 69.95$ vmedia - 52.95$ teksavvy - 48.99$ (400GB)
50Mbps bell - 79.96$ vmedia - 62.95$ teksavvy - 59.99$ (400GB)
So answer is because bell always will charge you more, if not with direct pricing (usual) than with overcharging, limiting data, increasing prices slowly so most people do not notice. Yes you can beg for deals now and then but why should I if I get lower prices and same service everywhere else … And no I am not a hater I just prefer not to be overcharged for same service.
You are maybe fairly technical, but not very "save savvy" or just working for bell.

Yeah, seems like a RoBelUs shill. Bell doesn't even offer higher then 5mbps DSL in my area, yet VMedia is willing to give me 50mbps DSL and have a bell person get it setup. I currently have their 60mbps cable plan and am tempted to go with the 50mbps for $10 less.

Yeah I heard the VBox is pretty bad. Hopefully they invest more into improving it.

Switched from Cogeco to Vmedia (Cable) for the comparable plan...just be warned, they throttle you between 6pm (might be 7) to 12pm on any P2P/Torrenting type traffic...I haven't tested the gaming part, but apparently also applies to any game downloads on PS4/Xbone, or "download manager" type things.

vMedia has has acknowledged doing this on their forums

Seems like their plans got more expensive. Definitely wouldn't go back to these guys - the support was awful.

Wow... I'm a shill when I'm just being objective. I guess switching to different providers depending on who gives the best offer is not being "save savvy" in your books and I should avoid Bell and Rogers no matter what....Right. I guess the others who point out this "deal" isn't cheap must be shills as well.

As for getting 50mbps over the exact same DSL lines... Obviously whoever you talked with at Bell had incorrect info in front of them, otherwise it does not make logical sense to only offer you 5mbps; but talking logic would be beyond you anyway.

In any case I won't waste my time with people like you so please do me a favour and put me on ignore as I'm doing the same for you two. You obviously have nothing to contribute that I'd be interested in reading.

Hardly a shill. They are more expensive for many people. In addition they have very expensive installation fees and equipment. They seem very good on paper and perhaps they are the right choice for some. Do they finally support HD Netflix officially via Android TV? The Android box they sell used to be a MyGica based player which to my knowledge has never had an official Netflix app ( not talking tablet app on a media player). Might have changed by now though. Even FibeTV now provides Netflix out of the box.

These days it's almost better to try to negotiate a better deal from bell or Rogers.

This comes in handy as I need a provider for my parents. However their reviews are quite horrible.
