Re: FTTN 25/10 and 50/10 with Fibe TV + Unlimited Bandwidth

Called in, could not get the promo price of 49.99. The best they could do was $79.99

They also discounted the POTS basic line $5, discounted my satellite $30 and added the $10 unlimited bandwidth. So all in all, it makes the jump to 50/10 $54.99 a month for the service and bandwidth taking into account the discounts.

Thanks to a off duty tech on here, my profile was already changed and this is what im getting...

I got mine bumped up to the 50/10 as well . . . it changed to 25/10 within minutes, but I am still waiting to get the 50 speeds.

Probably because its the weekend. A user by the name of Bellmtl PM'd me and offered to change the profile, and he did

Try that, if he is unavailable, PM me and I will see if my buddy who is a field tech can find a minute to do it.

Promos never apply to existing customers or people who used to be a customer within the last 6 months to prevent people from cancelling/re-ordering. They have redflagdeals people figured out.

For $79.99 I can get 100/100 unmetered where I'm moving in a few years including tax, so pass.

The rules for add-ons like data buckets/unlimited are different. Existing customer's are not eligible for promos on the base plans. I'm not saying it can't change, this is just how it's been for awhile.

Not true.

50/10 = FTTN
50/50 = FTTH

So if you live in an older house, you are SOL to get fibre to your home?

I believe they are bringing FTTH to old houses around Quebec City and Montreal. I haven't seen or heard anything for the Toronto area.

It has nothing to do with the age of the home, FTTH will eventually be everywhere. Its currently only being deployed in newer sub divisions, and high density areas of Quebec and Toronto.

After speaking with the rep last night they "upgraded" me to the unlimited plan for 10$/month. My speed won't change so I'm staying with FIBE 50/50 (FTTH) but after speaking with the rep, it is not a "true" unlimited plan. From what I understood, they upgraded my limit from 250GB a month to 1000 GB a month. It is still good but if someone goes over 1TB of download/upload in a month, I'd be curious to know what would happen.

^ Also not true. There's no cap. It's unlimited.

I called in and replaced the 15/10 I had with FibeTV for 25/10 Unlimited for FibeTV. Unfortunately it seems it won't get changed until the 31st for some reason. Either way, happy to have the speed increase and unlimited usage now.

I can't say it is not true as the rep told me he was adjusting my cap to 1000GB. That being said 1000GB may mean unlimited in Bell's system. Just telling you what the rep told me.

Here is what my usage tracker looks like after I upgraded to unlimited.
