What made them decide on "8" years?

Something smells fishy.

No clue, what number would not sound fishy?

3 years?

its not an 8yr contract, it an 8yr price lock.........but i agree, something not right, rogers knows something that we dont, there could be a price war coming on with the agregate-tpia implementation

I thought aggregate was supposed to make things more costly for TPIAs?

Maybe it allows (forces) the TPIA's to be less competitive with the incumbents?

I'm not sure how the wholesaling works, but there must be a reason why Teksavvy or Start can be so inexpensive, compared to Rogers

Is this Rogers offer to combat Bell's Unlimited Usage or is that what they've been giving out for a while now?

I'm so torn right now, i really want to switch to Tekksavvys 25/10 plan but part of me wants to see if Rogers will match Bell's Unlimited usage.

Rogers will definitely beat whatever bell is offering, give it some time. Rogers has always been the lesser of the two evils. Also I've heard from people that bell's unlimited is actually 1TB, not sure if its true but that's what I have been hearing... I wanna see someone use at least 2TB on bell and show the bill as proof that its actually unlimited with no fair usage crap.

Well, people at Rogers need to get their stories straight. I talked to "accounts" yesterday around 4PM. These are the people that make account changes not the frontline tech support rookies.

Anyhoo, the $45 deal was alive and well and available for new customers only. No mention of any expiry period. They just renewed this thing 2 weeks ago (so we heard) so to end it on a dime now makes no sense.

I talked to this guy there for 15 minutes and he sounded like he knew what he was doing. He definitely had the authority to make any changes to my account I wanted.

But then, with Rogers, who knows???
