Why is 6/0.8 more expensive than 7/1? When my neighbourhood gets upgraded to FTTN will my price automatically drop? Right now my area is still on 5/0.8.

Still looking for a final decision regarding the VDSL modems , their procurement, or rental fees

THat said, the 25/10 - 300 for $40 is pretty decent!

It's cheaper to go FTTN..

you'd likely have to upgrade to get FTTN.. and surely if you got upgraded, you could also get higher speeds.

there's a push to actively move people to FTTN.

now those 15/1 rates look better and going down as you said before!

No more 10/1 plan though?

not that I want it, but some might.

25/10 for $40? Nice! Now all we need is more details on the modem.

I think these rates are down right stupid good!

no more 10meg plan.. 15 is "up to".. so for places where you can't get the full 15.

and like. what would I price it at!?? there's no space left!

So I have to pay for an upgrade to save $2 per month. I don't care about higher speeds.

unfortunately.. yeah.

should I put the 6 meg prices back up to give you an extra incentive to go FTTN?

seriously though.. you should upgrade to FTTN if its available. you'll likely have a more reliable service since it's all new infrastructure.. the 6 meg stuff is all on the older plant...

And given this incentive, and taking 7/1, what is involved changing to 15/1 at a later date? It's just a profile change is it not?

yes I think so. I think with Bell it's $25 but I'll need to double check that.

Really liking the prices for the 25/10 300 Gig package. Gonna have to make my mind up once the cogeco prices and modem stuff is all finalized but from the looks of it I should be saving near $50-60 a month on internet compared to what I am paying now with Cogeco.

Hmm, I don't understand why 6/0.8 mbps is more expensive than 7/1 mbps (FTTN).

If I change from 6/0.8 mbps to 7/1 mbps (FTTN) or 15/1 mbps (FTTN) can I still use my same speedtouch modem that I use with 6/0.8 mbps, or do I need a new modem?

I agree there, the new rates a really good.

Though some might resent that "up to" for the 10mb speeds, but I guess you can't please everyone. Even if it is cheaper then the 10mb plan was!

Thanks for all the hard work Marc.

have another beer!

I tweaked the Cogeco rates yesterday already.. those aren't likely to change anymore.

that's great to hear though. that's quite a bit of money.

yeah.. there's really no point with the 10meg.. i supose i could put it up there but it would the same price as the 15 meg... it would just look weird.

So is the bell.ca site reliable because it says that I can get 50/10. If it reasonably priced then I might as well get that speed.

The bell site should be reliable.. ours should be too.. we just dont offer the 7 meg option today.. so it wont list it but I believe our qualification to be pretty good.

for the 50/10.. I'm still waiting on details for it but I'll be happy to put it up once I have those details.

Wow I am paying $45.99 right now for 16/1 (300 gig) and at the new 15/1 pricing it's only $32.99...that is a huge cost saving! Any idea when these prices will kick in and will accounts be automatically adjusted accordingly?

Are we going to be able to buy the modems or will there still be a rental fee?

actually, what we're likely to do is to give you the 15 meg price but leave you at your current speed..

So if you are currently on the 15/1 plan, do you have to send in a request to get the new pricing? (once it takes effect of course)

Or will you be automatically converting all current 15/1 plans to the new pricing?
