Goodbye Cogeco

Been with Cogeco since the @home days having moved into 3 different houses but always keeping my internet service active. Last week I thought I would call up and mention I was thinking of switching to another provider to see if they would possibly give this long time customer a break. Apparently not. And I wasn't even send to retentions or the loyalty department. So I signed up with Start which offers the turbo 20 speeds and cap for $20 less then cogeco (I don't bundle). And that was the reason why the lady on the phone from cogeco said she couldn't help me with a discount. You just lost a long time customer and you don't even seem to give a crap, I also mentioned Start to my parents and my sister who are currently with Cogeco. They're thinking about making the switch as well.. It's been fun.

i switched all my services away from cogeco and my internet to www.start.ca and never looked back they don't give a $h!t if your not willing to pay full price. They never offered me any thing i thought they would possibly give me a deal like what new customers get ..but no nothing like that.

thats why there called GOUGEco.

Surprised they didn't try and offer you $2.00 off your monthly bill if you signed a one year contract like they did with me. What a deal no?

Hahahah I've never been called 'undesirable' before. Guess I can add that to the list. Come April 16th, my wallet does the talking.

I have found that if you ask for a discount they will give it to you.

I did that specifically and also made them aware that I was a long time customer. She told me I wont qualify for a discount since I don't bundle with them.

I fucking laugh at people who bundle thinking that they're actually saving money. Splitting services and going with different companies saves you money.

Well technically you are saving vs Bell or other providers. But you are right.

Gougeco offered me $5.00 discount if I signed a 1yr contract for television. If I break the contract within that year they will charge me $75.00 for canceling. Great deal hey?

Cogeco doesn't operate on 3 year contracts, that's satellite companies like Bell. I have never even seen anything from Cogeco beyond a 1 year contract...

ah, I was going to say.. that would have been murder..

but yes, most promotions require you to keep something for 1 year with a penalty for breaking early. Really it's not much different than say a cell phone company (Rogers for example). Not that it's ok to do it, but it's quite commonplace.
