Re: Switch to Start.ca (cable) or stay with Bell Fibe 25 (VDSL)

I guess it all depends if you can put up with the billing errors. 10 mbit/sec upload is pretty nice.

It may not be necessary for you to stay on the $39.99 home phone for the next six months. You could sign up with voip.ms, and order an Obihai voip adapter from Amazon.com (maybe ship it across the border, and go pick it up to avoid high shipping costs). With voip.ms, you may not be paying more than $10/month. It depends how much calling you do. So that's a potential savings of $30/month, with regards to the phone payments. The Obi110 voip adapter might be useful for you, because it has a landline connector as well.

Also keep in mind that soon (hopefully) the CRTC will announce revised capacity rates for independent ISP's. If these revised rates are favourable to the IISP's, you could see more unlimited plans. Also, Cogeco will be increasing the upload speeds, but i'm not sure when this will happen.

Either way, it seems like you have a really good deal with Bell for the next six months.

It isn't a deal when the 6 months are up you're raped to shit. The 6 months after that makes up for the perceived deal. Promos like this are just to get people to sign up.

it is a deal as it requires no contract to get it and no signup fees usally, or modem rentals etc..

So you can cancel at the 6th month without any fees what so ever? None at all.
