Re: [Cable] We need an answer on Cogeco now

said by NytOwl:

You're ranting in a way that suggests TSI actually has control over when/if Cogeco allows them to provide Cable Internet on their platform.

Obviously I can't speak for TSI (and I haven't read over every thread), but perhaps a big reason for their flip-flopping is that Cogeco is flip-flopping them?

Just a thought.

There was a thread somewhere I read, and I can't remember which one, that said that if they flipped over, they'd have to raise their rates on their 1000 or so subscribers in Chatham to a level they weren't happy with (I believe it was $10/month more or something like that)....

So....unfortunately the Chatham subscribers I believe are holding this back...which is very unfortunate.

Ya. That is what I was hearing too. I think you got to look at it this way. Loosing a 100 but gaining thousands I think may be worth it. But then you got the side where you want to make ALL customers happy. A couple options.

1. Raise it $10 and gain many customers but may loose some in Chatam.

2. Don't raise it ten dollars and gain many customers making everyone happy but not gaining as much money.

3. Don't bring it at all.

Problem here is, Chatam is TSI's home town. You don't bite the hand that feeds you. In a sense at least. If it were my business, i wouldn't be ignoring my home town customers for the sake of money.

Normally i'd 10000% agree but when it involves home town and grown businesses, it's bad on your image to ignore local folk's best interests as well.

That's my two cents on that.

While I'd agree, here's the thing...Aggregated pricing is coming, so its either sticker shock now, or sticker shock later...isn't it by 2014 that everyone has to be on aggregated? So, ultimately...its going to be an increase now, or later...it is inevitable unfortunately....

I wonder how many of those 1000 are TSI employees....hrm interesting....

This is for sure correct, but there are two more details to keep in mind. Teksavvy (and everyone else) will be forced to go Aggregated by November 2013 anyway, also Aggregated wholesale costs are under review at the CRTC.

There was some talk of pushing for a delay in the Aggregated deadline because Rogers was foot dragging. Now it looks like the Aggregated switch over is planned for summer or fall.

Reading between the lines and projecting from the Rogers side, I think it goes something like this. Cogeco is ready to go, just need to flip the switch. Teksavvy has decided to hold off until one or both of the CRTC pricing review and the aggregated deadline pass. This way they will only have to adjust pricing once for Chatham customers. No matter what, Cogeco on Aggregated is coming by November 2013.
