Re: If TekSavvi doesn't fight on Jan 14th, I'm leaving them.

I've never seen that from Bell. On their site the 15/10 offer is $30/month for the first 6 followed by $53/month, and that's only if you buy other Bell services (which do come with contracts, conveniently). 75GB cap, $2/GB after that. Complete garbage, in other words.

Where are they advertising 300GB?

Well, can't speak for Rogers but Bell has that 300gb promotion for new customers, 15/10 300gb for $45 per month for the first nine(?) months (no contract).

Thats because its only available for 9 months. Its the student package.

So what's your point? You can just cancel after nine months if retentions doesn't offer something better.

Tek is 300GB and unlimited from 2am-8am, EB is 250GB unlimited from 2am-12noon. I think EB is geared to steal some market shares.

Thanks, nice find. That free dry loop really makes a difference to the monthly costs. Still wouldn't touch it personally because I'm not signing any contracts (EBox seems to make you sign one to get the modem), but I can see the value for those who don't mind them.

Also my TSI 28 cable is still much cheaper (for a no-restrictions plan). $49/month all-in after referral discounts. Very hard deal to walk away from, even for 10 mbps upload.

Just copy and paste from that thread. Not interested in the 25 but tempting for the 15 and last time I checked , doesn't seems to be a contract involved.

In any case, better confirm with EB instead for any questions. Now I hope Tek will response to EB's new pricing.

And after 9 months you switch providers. Thus voting with your wallet. Go to who offers the better deal. Bandwidth/speed are important, as important as price.

If this is the case i'd rather go on contract with TSI and save the money. Contracts aren't an issue for me. As long as price / plan is good

I don't think teksavvy will lower their prices. They were once #1 for competitive pricing... no one could beat them. I'm surprised they are one of the more expensive now. Contract's are no issue for anyone IMHO. Price is good, plan is good... who cares if you're locked in for 12 months, 24 months.

Just make sure to factor in the ancillary costs of switching providers, such as activation fees, having to take time off of work, etc.

Blame the UBB/CBB fiasco for the spendiness and the CRTC for allowing it to get that way. And its only going to get worse from here on when the aggreated POI model is rolled out all your "unlimited" will vanish. I'm not looking forwards to losing the unlimited, though I'd love the higher speed packages. I don't think theres going to be any "Win - Win" scenario's. Unless someone somehow manages to pull a hat out of a rabbit.

I don't personally do these types of switches, but what would make me switch is if costs were good, free activation and i own a business so time off is no lost productivity for a day or two. I can work from home during that time.

Sometimes this is worth while with the savings.

Though we still have TSI DSL setup, we are still receiving a huge discount from Rogers for the 75\2. It had free activation, no modem fee's, tech came day they said and we pay $48 after taxes each month. Yes i'm on a contract for 12 months, but i have no plans of complaining at that price. This promo was extended to us twice now.

I've never needed or used Unlimited.. I could have used it a month or two here and there but otherwise Netflix is what uses 90% of our bandwidth in a month. as long as bandwidth stays above 250 for my house i'm good.

Not happy with the low bandwidth caps when they should be higher, but it's Canada, what else is new.

Hmm, copyright trolls quietly crawling up our Canadian arse expecting to extort ppl for commercial infringement without actual evidence of the latter?
