... and how much is it after your promo is done? Besides, comparing PAYGo wireless service and my unlimited data/text plan is sort of misleading.

Once the promo is done, which will be in December, it still will not cost me $200 a month, probably $140 or so not including the cell which I rarely use anyway. But believe me, when the promo is over we will be looking at our options and possibly going elsewhere which is the good thing about Winnipeg and the MTS/Shaw competition. Unfortunately the last offer we got from MTS was only for 6 months, we've been on year long promo's for two years now, first with MTS then with Shaw.

As for the free wireless, it's pretty much just that - a $28.50 credit against a wireless plan, which is enough to get the basic "Insider" plan for free, no charges or fees. I myself credited against my already decent unlimited data plan, so now I pay ~$200 for HDTV, high speed internet, home phone w/ unlimited NA long distance and unlimited wireless data and 300 minutes a month for my cell. Shaw can't come close to touching that.
Mozza,

It wasn't my promo card that I posted...but I should take out my co-worker's name. lol

I priced out what I get now with MTS, and what the comparable service would cost with Shaw (using Rogers for cell service) and the best price I could figure out was $220 after taxes. That would also mean I would have to buy the PVR from Shaw, and the phone from Rogers.

EDIT: Just did the calculations...

HD Plus + High Speed internet + Home phone (w/ same features) @ Shaw - $155.95
Rogers cellphone plan with 6GB data and 300 minutes - $60

Total: $215.95
After tax: $241.40

My current MTS bill, after tax - $205.10.

I had one year of ultimate tv, pvr, phone and high speed for $103 tax in.

It was to run out so I called and talked to retentions dept. She said you just had a one year promo so she couldn't do anything. I told her Shaw was offering me a year of full services for $79 plus tax. She said sorry, I can't help you. I told here I'd then like to cancel, she asked what, and I said everything. She said there was a 30 day cancellation period, I said ok fine.

One week later, I got a call from MTS. They wanted to offer me the same services I currently had for $73 a month, taxes in. This would be for a six month duration, I accepted.

Apparently you can get 6 months at the promo price if you are switching from Shaw. I heard about that at the Polo Park kiosk, but you should be able to get it at any MTS store if you ask for it specifically.

$79 MTS Promo - Good Deal?

Here is the latest MTS offer I received, is this a decent MTS promo, has anyone recently received anything better?

For the first 6 months for home phone, tv, and high speed Internet it would be $79.00 per month. This includes the phone service with Call Display, and Call Waiting, with 5 cents a minute long distance within North America. The MTS Highspeed Lightning service with the option for a wireless router, and the Ultimate TV service with whole home PVR, Basic + 9 digital theme groups, the Free HD theme group, and up to 2 set top boxes required for each TV.

No additional discounts offered
