When did you end up doing this? Also, any idea how long this offer is available?
Zoomer for phone + Carrytel for internet + Tangerine bank account + Stack debit card + Great Canadian rebates, ebates, drop and paymi for rebates.

I signed up on Friday (19th), I asked how long the promo would last, they weren't 100% sure but they knew it would last until at least the end of the month.

Can anyone confirm what speeds they are getting with the 75u? I always get 300 with the 150u.

Thinking of downgrading for $37.50 (which is what I currently pay for 150u from last year's promo).

Rogers is offering me Ignite 500U mpbs for internet for one year since existing customer for $54/ month. Anyone know if I should switch to this cheaper Fido?

Not sure about today but on Friday wireless wave was offering 100 in store credit for Fido cell plan members, and 50 if you didn’t have a cell plan. Deal should still be active.

That speed of 300 is Rogers speedboost and does not last long.

Try downloading large file that takes several minutes and you will see it only is around 300 for little bit.
2022: BOC raised 2 times and MCAP raised its prime next day.
2017 to 2018: BOC raised rates 5 times and MCAP raised its prime next day each time.
2020: BOC dropped rates 3 times and MCAP waited to drop its prime to include all 3 drops.

I've tried using multiple speedtests (including fast.com) and it always seems constant at 300. But I will take your advice and give this a try. Is it a reasonable test to use fast.com and set the test to last several minutes? Should I expect speedboosts of up to 300 if I switch to 75u as well? Thanks!!

Other RFD folks have tested speedboost and confirmed it is not permanent. However would be good to have another datapoint.

Not positive but 75u unlikely to get speedboost to 300, more like mid 100s.
