Re: [DSL] NEW RATES - Bell Ontario - Update

Thanks. So it's not only me who's wondering

3. I have an old pre-VDSL Corning POTS splitter. I bought it and installed it myself but it's the same model Bhell used to install on business lines. If I want to get VDSL service do I need to replace it? If not, does that simplify or reduce the cost of installation?

These new prices are now on the website does that mean we can order them?

I am currently on the 6mb plan, and want to move to either 15 or 25mb.

Any idea?

Well, apparently I'm the first to upgrade to 50/10 on TSI (at least the rep who just placed my order thought so).

March 25th/26th I guess my speed change will go through. Of course, my awesome Sagemcom 2864 will probably have different opinions.

New pricing really is great. 50/10/300GB even with the modem rental and dry loop is still working out to the same price I'm paying for the 25/10 right now. Once the modem rental fee can be dropped it'll save the $8.

Good stuff TSI.

I suspect you'll still be paying full installation price. Good luck.

Hopefully you don't need bridge mode at that speed.

Because not everyone will have a line that can support those speeds.

As far as I know you always pay install price when moving from a CO plan to a remote plan.

The website is not done, I would wait.
15/1 or 15/10?

I'm debating 25/10 now and 45/4 cable in 5+ months or 50/10 now and no cable.
Or I could leave TekSavvy and go to 45/4 cable now.

That's the plus about 50/10, guaranteed sync.

Bell's website says 50/10 is available on my line. Teksavvy's website only shows 25/10 available. Which one is more likely to be correct? I've had 25/7 service before from Bell.

They call it 'DSL activation fee discount' but who knows how long it is for.
It is NOT for the /10 upload plans though.

Same boat here. Hoping there's some information coming about what's involved in upgrading.

I do.

I have a Zyxel on order. If it gets here before Tek upgrades me great, otherwise I'll "trudge" along with the 35Mbps or so until it arrives. hehe.

Did you just call in an upgrade? Did the Teksavvy Rep's know what to do?

I did. Rep knew what the plan was but wasn't sure exactly what the details were (upgrade fees, plan cost, etc). Was on hold about 10 minutes while he worked it out. Pretty painless.

So are these prices now active as they are on the website?

I am on the 6mb DSL package now, can I begin to upgrade to either the 15mb or 25mb package?

Anyone have any ideas?

reply to SimplePanda

we're launching Bell-ON/QC, Cogeco-ON, Telus and Shaw rates today... still deploying some of the bits now but essentially any of those can be ordered once we're done with the deployment.

The Cogeco one is taking a bit longer as it has a new qualification tool that goes live too.

Internally, nearly every system is getting tweaked also.. this has been in the works since last year... the MyWorld portal will get features disabled until we can re-add them... upgrading speeds and stuff like that will not work for now.

There are simply too many changes to cover everything all at once.

15/10 - $34.99 - Very nice!

For those of us not making any changes...the new rates will just roll over on our next months invoice(s)?

Also, how can I transition to dryloop and Tektalk vs my current pots resell wet loop + 15/1....

Should I just wait? Should I make contact in the direct forum? Should I do a dance in the middle of the street?

N.B. that there's a mandatory $8/month modem rental fee on that plan so if you already have an ADSL modem, the difference between 15/1 and 15/10 is $10.

I'm already on a remote. Do you mean moving from copper to FTTN?

If there are new changes, it should just roll over.

As for TekTalk, ask in the direct forum or call them.

When there is a lease-to-own modem purchase program, will months already paid for rental act as credit towards that cost?

My guess is that as soon as there is a lease-to-own program, rental costs will start counting.

Previous rental costs probably won't count.

only if you share the video of it!

personally, for those on legacy 6 meg.. if you have a wet loop.. I'd actually stay there just because all the FTTN stuff actually performs better.. we'll be telling our reps the same thing. it's not that it doesn't work.. it will surely work but we just have a better certainty that it will work on newer infrastructure.

If you're upgrading to 15/1.. you should be able to do that now. the dry loop install fees should now be waived.

The TekTalk stuff, I don't believe that's getting rolled out today. But once it does, anybody on it will have everything adjusted accordingly.. everybody gets the same deal...
