DonR Same as 57, I am now on Ignite 75, but I get 95-100 mbps on a regular basis. I downgraded from Ignite 150 (to save money on a bundle with TV), and honestly 75 mbps is good enough, provided you don't have too many users at the same time. As for the price, with Rogers you never know. Different people get very different prices all the time. You will typically get a better Internet price when it's bundled up with cable TV. For Internet only, I'd check other providers and compare their prices. That may give you a somewhat better negotiation position.

Ignite 75 is 75 mbps download and 10 mbps upload, unlimited, so it's a bit better than your 60.

I've recently switched to the Ignite 75 plan and get 95-100 mbps down and 10 up consistently. I was previously on a very old 30/5 with 125 GB cap plan. Internet prices have been dropping if you stay at roughly the same download speeds.

PFD Hey guys, bit of help before I negotiate the world of Rogers.
So last year I upgrade my Internet plan from an old grandfathered 80 Gig a month plan that I was over paying for, and the decent tech I chatted with sold me on year long promo that was called Rogers Ignite 60 Unlimited.
It's $85.99 but I get a $31discount. However they charge me $8 for Enhanced Home Rental modem rental for a total of $62.99

Now, as I'm almost to the end of my promotion term, I go online to see what promos I can get. I see that the Ignite 60 Unlimited is no longer available.
They have several unlimited plans, the lowest of which is almost cheaper than what I'm currently paying Ignite 75u $69.99 and includes modem rental.
I don't really know what those numbers mean (I think it's download speeds); but what I'm asking is is the Ignite 75 comparaable to the Ignite 60 Unlimited plan? Is the full Ignite 60 plan ($85.99) over priced?

57 @bbakernbay : Thank you for the update. What luck that the Bell Supervisor found the equipment on a shelf, after a couple of months, and that you were able to get a full credit.

bbakernbay After hours of calls, emails the issue of the missing modem, router and receiver/PVR seems to have been solved today. The Bell Supervisor acknowledged that Bell Technician mistakenly took my Rogers Equipment and left it on a shelf in their shop from January 8th until today when I drove from Kitchener to Guelph to retrieve it this morning and then return it to Rogers for credit of $944.33

Why he ever offered to do this as a Bell Customer Service is beyond me and never follow through it admit his mistake and just leave it on a shelf in a shop is baffling. I should have known better yes but that is 20/20 hindsight. I am sure everyone has been updated on the fact of never to accept Rogers equipment.

The Rogers Rep I spoke to an hour later who was calling the second consecutive day asking when and how I was going to settle my $944 outstanding amount was exceptional and spent 45 minutes following up the return and ensuring the amounts were properly credited. She even waived the Late Payment Penalty Charges. Thank you Antoinette from Rogers Wireless, you were the absolute epitome of Customer Service.

57 I'm sorry for your issue, but why would you think it's handled that way? Did you check with Rogers at the time? You left $1000 of equipment with a complete stranger?

You should have returned the equipment to Rogers (preferably at a Rogers store) and get a receipt for said equipment in case something goes wrong down the road and the equipment is "lost" in Rogers' system, which also happens. Did you get some sort of receipt from Bell? Rogers don't usually care about the remotes.

That may not be wise if Rogers decide to use a collection agency which would wreck your credit rating.

bbakernbay I got a big shock today in an email from Rogers. They are billing me $1,000 or thereabouts for not returning their modem, receiver and remote after I switched to Bell Fibe on January 8th.

When the Bell Tech finished the install he said he can arrange to return the equipment to Rogers through their internal system. I said okay if that is what is done although I remember having some misgivings but took him up on his offer. He took the modem and receiver and I still have the remote so I will return that myself to a Rogers Store next week.

I called Rogers and they said that is an issue between Bell and myself. I called Bell and gave them the Order Number and they agreed to open Case Management Report. How is this going to be resolved 10 weeks later who knows.

I am going to put my credit card on Suspension so Rogers doesn’t grab the $1,000.

Has anyone had similar experience?

Gentleman bbakernbay:

I went through the same thing with Rogers a few years back. Had a well researched competing offer from a TPIA and gave all the intimate details of the offer to a Rogers rep on the phone. I could even hear the sound of the rep typing the intricate details of the offer I had. After wasting countless hours on the phone with the rep and even retentions, no deal.

Funny thing, I never looked back and have no regrets.

30/5 plan

Just checked what broadband plans are available through Rogers.

It seems they eliminated the 30/5 internet only plan. Interesting.

ExDilbert Modem rental is included in Ignite internet prices. Rogers does not support modems that are not purchased or rented from them. Unless you are currently with Rogers you will most likely need to switch to a Rogers supplied modem/router. If it is a Rogers supplied modem, it's most likely no change will be needed.

thegrommit I'm considering dropping cable TV and going internet only. Currently have a CGNM-3552 modem (commonly referred to as the CGN3?). However, the internet packages are now branded as "Ignite". Would I need to replace the modem? My current plan is limited to 60 Mbps, and all the current plans are at higher speeds.

[edit] nvm, found a rogers forum discussion indicating that the CGNM-3552 will support higher speeds.

ExDilbert Services can be cancelled without penalty if done soon enough. I believe the cutoff is up to 14 days after installation. Doing it before installation will sometimes result in a call back with a better offer.

bbakernbay I had almost the same experience today. We have TV, Internet 30 MB’s and free Home Phone and I called to say Bell Fibe just installed in our condo and they offered a good deal. Anyway after 10 minutes the Agent said Rogers could reduce my monthly bill by $5! I was stunned and told them I was heading to Bell do see what they could do. $5 was insulting.

I just missed out on Bell $100 Visa Card deal but they offered me an acceptable deal including 1 Gigbyte per second Internet and movie channels free for 2 months with included PVR at less than I was paying. 2 year contract with penalties to cancel.

I get back home and phone rings and same Rogers Rep said they just released a better offer and the monthly charges would be even lower now.

An hour later Rogers Loyalty phones and said they understand I wasn’t satisfied with their previous offer and now offered a very substantial discount to keep my business. I said too bad, I just signed with Bell, you are too late even though Rogers new price was now better than Bell.

Pisses me off that they stick it to their existing customers and lose out on nearly $2,000 a year in income plus overhead in refurbishing modem and PVR and spend huge $$$ in trying to acquire new customers (suckers).

Rogers offered me even BETTER deal

Well, I called Rogers again today and explained that, since I only had a discount on my internet service and not VIP cable, there's nothing stopping me from switching to another ISP, as there are many now in the $40 price range, and I don't really need 100 Mbit/s.

The first person said that she could reduce my *all-in* current bill of $197 by a grand total of about $4. I said no thanks, so she put me through to retentions.

The next guy I spoke to didn't fool around. I told him the same thing: paying the full rack rate for VIP and have only a discount on internet, and Rogers needed to do better.

The CSR told me that I'd have to sign up for 2 years (with $400/$200 max penalties for cancelling), but my new *all-in* price for TV/internet would be more like $150.

I said, "*sign me up*".

Still waiting to see my first bill to make sure there are no surprises, but looking good!

DonR I was thinking of getting a new router so that I could put my CGN3ACSMR in bridge mode, but the fact that for now it works perfectly fine in gateway is one of the reasons I'm still hesitant to go that way. The other reason, of course, saving a $100, or so, seems like a good idea too.

Also, I should have used Mbps, instead of MBps, when referring to download speeds, in my previous post.
