They're probably doing calls to "see about getting you the best price possible"... They are basic customer service calls about getting you to renew contracts and taking a discount by agreeing to a new term. If you have call filtering service on your phone (like voip.ms does), then just add this number to the blocked list...
If you also have Rogers cable internet, they are likely trying to get you to commit to a long-term contract. The recent publicity about usage-based billing has made more people aware that there are alternatives to Bell and Rogers and they probably want to stop the flow of defectors.
I got a call from Rogers a few days ago offering to upgrade my usage caps and speed, based on the fact that I had exceeded my 95 GB limit several times in the past few months. I told them in no uncertain terms that: a) I already owned a modem and had no desire to rent a new one (even for "free"); b) I was quite happy with the 10 Mbps downloads that I currently have and saw no need for extra speed; and c) because of their outrageous overage fees, I fully intended to switch to Teksavvy internet once it's available in my area.
