Do as much price/feature/function comparison online as you can and decide if you can live with either service. Then get a real quote from the alternate service and see how it compares with your online search. Be caution as they have "magical" ways of presenting the numbers that make it look attractive or cheaper.If my contract isn't up for a few months, can I still get a new plan and not get charged for switching or anything?
Or if I put a cancel request in, could it go into effect in like 3 weeks (my contract expires in about 8), and would that cost me anything? Or if I change my mind, can I uncancel before?
Armed with that information contact live chat. It would be surprising to get Ignite Premier 500U with 3 boxes for under $170, taxes included.
Not sure of their current strategy but Bell seemed to raise their prices every 6-9 months.
You can usually reverse a cancelation request up to 1 or 2 days before the final cancel date. You can renegotiate a new plan at any time, even a few months before the scheduled end date.
Finally, if you decide to switch, have your new provider manage the porting of your existing telephone number. DO NOT cancel it yourself or you might lose the number.
