One bundle that may interest you is the Free Wireless Plan: http://www.mts.ca/wireless

Subscribe to: MTS Home Phone + MTS Internet + MTS TV and sign a 3 year contract for wireless (new or existing customer). Phones start at $0.

The monthly credit of $28.50 covers the unbundled price of the plan and the "Wireless Network Charge" so the plan is free. Plus you still get the monthly bundle discount of $5, so they actually pay you $5/month.

If you decide on a higher priced plan, you get the $28.50 credit and just end up paying the difference.

You can pick any voice phone at the 3 year contract price. There are a couple that are free on contract. There is a one-time activation fee of $40, but you get a credit of $100 for porting your phone number over from another carrier.

That is a nice perk Dr.Dave, that is another thing that might make me go the MTS route.

I am hoping to hear more examples like earlier in the thread where people got 2 free HD Boxes and Free PVR for life. That sounds like a good deal.

I also stumbled accross a MTS offering in Brandon and it was Basic + 11 groups for $30 ($25 bundled) plus whole home PVR and 2 HD rentals for 24 months.

If I could get the offer at the beginning of the thread I think I would be happy.

MTS offer - $72/mth/12 mths with 1st mth free for HS Internet Lightning, Phone essentials (free LD n/a), Ultimate TV Basic & 9 themes, 2 free HD boxes and whole house PVR free for the your entire time with MTS.

As far as I know, MTS has discontinued the "free for life" promo. I know someone that tried to get it, but Ultimate TV wasn't in her area. Now that she can get Ultimate TV, they told her that the "free for life" promo is not available.

You could try to get the Brandon deal. At least it's something that that they should be able to put through.

Even at regular prices, the first STB is included in the price of Ultimate TV and the others are pretty reasonable.

MTS Promo

(Thanks Dave...didn't see this thread)

What is the best Promo out there for a person upgrading from Classic (with internet and home phone) to Ultimate?

In other words what is the best deal a person can expect?

In addition to the free cell plan, you can also get a $15 credit if you have internet, phone and tv. Adds up to a $45 credit.

Just to ad a little spice to this mix... I have been on MTS Ultimate for 18 months now. I also have my home phone (20 years) and Internet with them. This next round of new HD channels is a gross loss for me. Because of the mix of packages I currently have I need to add 4 more in order to just retain the HD content I now have. If I want to add any it will be a minimum of $13.00 plus tax. That does not include Setana as it is a stand alone SD and out of my interest range. My current bill is $135.00 a month which includes most of the movies etc. I do not have any "promo" deals of any kind.
I emailed MTS with my concerns. The very short reply was essentially "thanks for coming out". We will not give anything to keep you. As a result I have contacted Shaw Direct and have had several very nice folks promise me the moon for making the switch. I have not made up my mind yet as I would like a direct phone conversation with a Supervisor at MTS before I bail, but so far I am not holding out much hope.

Here is the 2009 offer for the individual who thought it was not real.

http://members.shaw.ca/wcira/MTS Offer 2009.pdf

2010 Offer six months at $85 for phone, MTS TV & Internet (and the "free" wireless if you want it)

http://members.shaw.ca/wcira/MTS Offer 2010.pdf
You forgot to blank out your name in the second one on the second line, Wilson.

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.

You call $200 a month a good deal? I hardly think so. Right now with Shaw i'm paying about $90 a month for xtreme speed internet, digital phone light with free long distance, and full cable with HD plus. As for a cell, I use pay as you go which is like $20 a month.

... 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.

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
