Switching from Bell to Rogers phone today
So today will be the day I switch from Bell, with which I pay $55/month for some reason and all I get is unlimited local calls...
(and I just got interrupted by a phone call from Primus. They knew my name and knew that I collected Air Miles ... argh, so annoying).
to Rogers home phone ... no wait, rogers home phone is POTS and the more expensive one, correct? I'll be switching to Cable Telephony, think the name Rogers gives it is Rogers Internet Phone Service. I get unlimited local calls + 6 features for $19.99 + everything else =~ $26.00. I was thinking of going with broadband telephony for a while, because of the price and the features, but I hear the quality is unreliable.
The downside with cable telephony (and broadband as well) is that now I won't have any use for my fax, and when I want to receive or send a fax from now on, i'll have to find another way of doing it. I don't use the fax that often (maybe send 20 pages a year and receive 5), but this is actually the only reason that has held me back in making a decision, and still making me hesitate to call Rogers. Big bummer.
On the plus side, I'll be saving $30 a month and getting 6 extra features. Had Bell called me and told me they had something called Home Phone Choice which is exactly like my current Bell plan but with a long distance plan for the price of $36, I would've considered it. But screw them, those thieves.
