I am now with Bell. Rogers pulled that stunt twice. The first time they brought the price back down, the second they said there was nothing they could do. I told them I was leaving as the contract terms have changed It went up to the office of the president and I was not charged a break fee. I have also confirmed it with the CRTC. If a provider changes the terms of a contract you have 30 days to action, or it is deemed you have accepted.

If you think that your rate with Bell will not increase during the contract then you are in for a surprise.
The reason that I do not switch from one-provider to another because all of them are the same when it comes to contracts and increases.

Question

Not necessarily true?Maybe Yes? Maybe No?

I've known people who didn't get price increases during a set contract(prices went up after contract was over) with Bell and others that it did go up?So its a 50/50 chance. The ones I knew that they're prices went up during their set contract where in Quebec and those that didn't where in Ontario, whether that had anything to do with it or it was just coincident that I can't answer.

I agree, contract with Bell is like box of chocolates, you never know what you are going to get.

Was looking to possibly move my mother from Rogers to Bell Fibe. Had this good chat with this person online who listed a variety of bundles and I wanted to have a transcript so my mother could make a choice. I asked the Bell rep to email me the transcript and she said they didn't have that feature. This was confirmed when I exited the chat. In 2015, what online chat doesn't have an Email Transcript feature. I had to chuckle.

Hi dehein, in future what you can do is to copy the transcript yourself... before the chat window closes, you can select all of the text and copy it to your clipboard and then paste it into a file or email. I've done that a couple of times where I emailed the transcript to myself to avoid writing down what the Bell rep told me in chat.

Sadly I was chatting on my Android and couldn't see a way to do that. It's just bizarre that Bell doesn't have such a basic feature.

They do have this feature, but maybe the agent was making promises that she could not keep so did not want to be on the record.

All Bell services are going up on February 01, 2016, even Crave Tv by $2.
Crave tv has been available only for one year and the price is going up by 50%
I have had Netflix for the last few years with no changes in price, still paying $7.99 a month.

Looks that January next year will be the last month of my services with Bell, especially that I am forced to keep home phone with my other services and it has been going up in price every 6 months.

More details at Bell.ca/pricechanges

Netflix going up to $9.99... two increases in less than a year. Existing customers are locked in for two years before they see the price increases.

It does not surprise me since Canadian dollar lost 30% of it's value. I do not mind paying $2 extra because the service is well worth it.
Regardless of that I am done with Bell or any other tv services. They are just not worth the money any more in my opinion.
I refuse to pay for home phone and constant increases and I do not use this service at all, who really needs home phone these days anyways.
I was hoping that there will be some savings in pick and pay but I know that most likely it will be impossible to save anything.

Price increases are a fact of life for just about everyone, unfortunately.

The Netflix price hikes will continue and have nothing to do with exchange rates. Americans are getting the same increases.
