[Cable] NEW RATES - Cogeco

Please note that these are not yet available at this time. We can not take orders with these rates yet. This post is for discussion purposes only and will only be discussed here. Our associates will not be able to answer inquiries about these rates or packages.

Hey Gang,

Here's what we're looking at for Cogeco territory in Ontario.

6 mbps
75 Gigs - $24.95
300 Gigs - $32.95
Unlimited - $43.95

10 mbps
150 Gigs - $34.95
300 Gigs - $42.95
Unlimited - $57.95

20 mbps
150 Gigs - $39.95
300 Gigs - $49.95
Unlimited - $79.95

30 mbps
150 Gigs - $62.95
300 Gigs - $69.95
Unlimited - $99.95

60 mbps
150 Gigs - $92.95
300 Gigs - $116.95
Unlimited - $191.95

On plans that have usage caps - unlimited between 2am and 8am

existing users get migrated according to this:

3meg/sec speed becomes 6meg/sec
7meg/sec speed becomes 10meg/sec
14meg/sec speed becomes 20meg/sec
16meg/sec speed becomes 30meg/sec

switching to lower tiers or speeds costs $5 to the incumbent.. so it's easy to change..

Glad you kept the Unlimited option but 60 mbps pricing looks scary..

I hope this isn't an insight to what Rogers pricing will go to.

That's pretty shitty Marc. Feel bad for you guys. :\

CRTC seriously got the numbers wrong, when the incumbent's pricing is cheaper than the TPIA's pricing on the incumbent's network.

So disgusted with the CRTC.

I expect that not everybody would do that.

I've tried to be as realistic as possible... I dont have the best usage data for those speeds. I have the 60meg speed at my house and I can't even get top speed all the time even if I wanted to...

I've tried being as reasonable as possible. I didn't want to be seen to be crying wolf or anything like that. This is my best guess as to what we might logically price this stuff out at. Frankly, you'd be better off going with Cogeco.. (edit: no really, please go with cogeco if you want 300gig on a 60meg line)

That's a good question. I dont know yet. I've just focused on the prices.

On the DSL front, we'll have some pretty good options there.

Can we expect a similar scary story with Vidéotron? (tho their cost per 100 Mbits has increased by a bit over 10%, but nowhere as near to Cogeco levels).

Hey Gang,

Here's what we're looking at for Cogeco territory in Ontario.

20 mbps
150 Gigs - $49.95
300 Gigs - $54.95
Unlimited - $79.95

Here's what we're looking at for Telus territory out west.
15 mbps
300 Gigs - $39.99
Unlimited - $47.99

25 mbps
300 Gigs - $44.99
Unlimited -$54.99

By way of comparing, here in MB with MTS I get 20Mbs/2Mbs DSL for $60.00/mth unlimited

It really look that when I am back in Eastern Ontario, with only legacy DSL or Cogeco for infrastructure, it's going to cost a lot more. Go figure, going from sparsely populated to a much higher pop density only to end up paying more for less.

Yep, competition is alive and well (no barb at TS here as they have to use existing infrastructure).

Videotron, I'm still working on. The rate is way high though. It's $2031, quite a bit less than the $2556 from Cogeco but still very high.

hum. possibly. The 150gig rates aren't that bad for those who dont use that much. Generally speaking though, you're right, those who only have access to legacy 6meg DSL.. these options may be their only alternative in many cases.

Those prices really bite. I got Cogeco on the beta from TSI last month to provide me redundancy in case my DSL goes down, and to get some more upstream for those times I really need it.

I guess I'll wait for the DSL pricing to be announced, then make some decisions of my own. I sure am glad I cancelled the upgrade to 30 I had ordered.

Where do the new rates leave those of us who recently signed up? I've been a Videotron client for over 8 years and signed up to the $34.95 20Mbps package with $25 max overage for a March 11th changeover.

Really sorry dude. I totally expected the CRTC decision to be better.

When will there be an online tool to check our Cogeco usage soon? You guys will lose your shirts if you don't get something active quickly.

I think you could improve significantly on those prices by only running the meter during prime/peak times, or not running the meter during the lowest traffic times (eg. 12 midnight to 12 noon, or whatever).

It doesn't cost you anything (other than UBB style profits) to allow unlimited transfers during off-peak times. By offering this, you might even get enough heavy users to shift their traffic patterns to off-peak, thereby saving you money on capacity costs.

Cheers

unlimited between 2am and 8am will be for all packages everywhere. If it turns out that many use it and that I'm able to lower rates.. I'll be happy to do that.

That's the same price Cogeco charges for an unlimited 60Mbit business account with 10 IP addresses or something like that. This isn't at all competitive, but then again Cogeco's got Teksavvy by the balls on this.

Wow your right about the 60meg/300gig cogeco is literally offering the same package for 17 dollars less thats Not right.. Cause i know you guys are not trying to make more than the incumbent.. wow. you must pay more than they charge a retail customer for it That should be good grounds for a r&v of cogeco rates no?
Even after bundle discounts they are still 7 cheaper.. thats wrong.

Just one question Marc, will you be looking at going to an unlimited amount for overage charge or will you present one of $25 stand?
