They offered me a 50% off on 150u from Fido. I've asked for 75u and got it for 50% off as well. It come to $32.5 and for a $50 accessory credit I've got a JBL Tune 155BT for $6.5 (I've only paid taxes).
The deal was at Cloverdale Mall.

dont think it is fake news since these promotions are usually for existing customers only.

I got the 50% off from last year's promo and on my bill it specifically says "Fido Internet 150 + Mobile". I was not an existing customer. I did not and still don't have mobile service with Fido. It was set up by a Fido rep, not an authorized dealer.

I was with Rogers and I was able to cancel immediately (same day). Fido is likely the same.

One told me this is Not for existing home internet customers but for new activations. I can cancel my current service by calling in and start a new service.
The other told me even I cancel my current service they cannot open a new account at the same address.
They aren't giving the same responses so there is a chance you get a good agent.

This. Also try calling their bluff. Cancel and see if they take you to retention. They might be able to offer you 50% off.Dynatos wrote: ↑ Bogus. People move.
They likely can't create a new account for the same name at the same address, but they certainly can create a new account for a new name. Get your significant other or room mate to agree to create an account. Wait until your equipment arrives, confirm that everything works, and then cancel the old plan effective immediately.
