Bell MTS announced "Price Adjustments" effective Sept. 2017. The last general increase was Feb. 2016.
In order to maintain our quality of service and technological leadership our customers have come to expect, Bell MTS must adjust the costs we charge to the customer.

I have posted the new prices from the link plus the old price where it is available from the web site. I didn't include those communities in rural Manitoba that have Cable TV in this table. The price increase for internet is $3.95/month for those plans where the old price available so I expect that is also the case for the other plans that aren't currently listed.

Worth calling Retention?

Shaw cold called me and is offering 75/7.5 inet, home phone, basic+5 themes and bluesky for 2 tv's for $80/month for a year.
Granted it will cost another $20 for unlimited long distance and a couple extra channels but that's about >half what I'm paying MTS now for net, home phone, tv + dvrs($229).

Half of what you are paying is a definite yes. The issue is, retention is not what it used to be. Quotas get slashed and companies are ready to let customers go at higher rates than before, especially when it means slashing the bill in half.

My suggestion is to always be super polite, explain to them that a 50% discount even with all the extras is over $1000 for that year alone. You could cancel, switch, and switch back before end of year and put that money to good use like investment or vacation.

If someone offered me 1000$+ in exchange for 1-2 hours of calls tops and a day of waiting for the install, I'd take it but depends on how valuable it is relatively to you.
