Re: Bell now giving unlimited usage

So I guess I should leave Rogers or wait a year?

Well personally, I hope the ISPs go nuts trying to outrun and outgun each other. Just what we need to shake up ISP price hike complacency.

Nothing like a good ole price/cap/speed war. Let's get ready to RUMBLE..........

And so it starts. Bell, Rogers, et al. get everyone used to metered billing, get absurd Capacity Based Billing rates approved for Wholesale/TPIA, then come back and introduce Unlimited packages that wholesale ISPs cannot match with the current pricing schemes.

They'll put a bunch of the wholesale ISPs out of business just as people's usage patterns are growing and a bunch of them are moving to aggregated POI/CBB.

They had to wait a while to do it in order to claim it was for "competitive" reasons...

Once the wholesale ISPs have been taught a lesson, the consumer gouging will resume.

$30 won't be appealing to most, but I'm sure there are a lot of people who are with Rogers purely for speeds that TPIAs can't offer and they would gladly pay an extra $30 for unlimited. Also $10 for unlimited for triple play customers will certainly help bell reduce churn caused by TPIAs. A large number of customers view the ability to have all their residential services on one bill to be very important.

Are they on crack? They want me to pay over 90 bucks a month for Fibe 25 for unlimited,when I can (for example) get it for $78 from Teksavvy (which IMO is still WAY to pricing). I have unlimited 28/1 for $40.

It's apparently unadvertised. Likely to give Bell a head start in acquiring more customers before Rogers comes out with a similar feature.

Bell recently started an unlimited addon for $30 (standalone) vs $10 (in a bundle). I am curious to see how soon, or if ever, Rogers will react to this. I recently added extra usage for $20 (80GB) and would gladly put in $10 for the unlimited option.
