Videotron contract renewal-> discount?

I'm about to renew my videotron high speed 7mbps yearly contract which expires nov8th. I've used their service for the past 7years and also have illico HD with them. I'm wondering if anyone was able to negotiate some sort of discount or anything of the sort?

High speed is about 40$ per month for 7mbps with 20gig dl 10 upload. Bell offers 7mbps dsl with 60gig (total) for (30$ for first year then 40$ afterwards) Bell is cheaper and is providing more dl-up.

Has anyone been able to negotiate a larger amount of dl/up or maybe a discount on the monthly subscription fee? I'm considering jumping ship to Bell. I like videotron's service, but there is cheaper out there.

thanks

I'm not sure if this applies in your location, but be aware of Bell claims, which are often "up to", rather than real numbers. See the following thread/discussion:

I'm not in your area (but grew up there...GO HABS GO!), but the last thing a company wants to hear is you will leave for the competition. Every company will have a loyalty or retention department. So if you are friendly and polite but say you want to switch for a better deal, you should be able to negotiate a better price with little to no hesitation on the part of the rep.

Actually 7Mb from Videotron is $50.95/month with a 12 month contract. Regular price is 60.95. If you also have another service with them you get another $10/month reduction.

In March of this year monthly internet contracts were increased $2/month. 12 month contracts will increase upon renewal. Prices above reflect this increase.
