Hi Folks

Happy new year.

I recently noticed that Eastlink did not renew its $2 discount on the French bundle. Yet the reason for giving the promotion in the first place has not changed- they still don't offer TSN alternate Montreal.

I also noticed that for customers getting "resolve" credits that more and more they are not extending them. I recently had 2 diff sets of discounts not renewed and more to come.

This is all happening at a time when Aliant FibreOp is picking at their subscriber base.

I wonder if there are many other subscribers noticing a similar trend ?

Default Price Increase

Got this notice on my bill: They just raised the price not more than a year ago by $3.00 so they have risen the price by $4 in less than a year.

Internet usage continues to grow, driven by online entertainment services and social media. We have enhanced our fibre optic network so that you receive the very best on-line experience. Due to the costs of these improvements, effective on your next statement there will be a $1.00 price increase.

Actually their have been quite a few price increases within the last 12 months. They have raised rates on just about everything.

And we now know why internet rates went up...

I'm happy to pay that buck a more so others can get better access.

Meanwhile, the $7 million rebuild that EastLink completed in this city 15 months ago, while jacking up our rates in the process, is now a full capacity network...What the

I noticed that my monthly bundle has gone up $2 as well. Every price increase pushes me that much closer to cutting the cord (for cable TV at least).
