They used to be transparent about the fees, now they're all rolled into the monthly rate.TSI has always had activation and dry loop fees. They were waved under some circumstances. TSI still supports a range of customer owned modems, though I would be tempted to go with the free Hitron CGN3 since it is supported by Rogers. Prices have gone up largely due to increased wholesale prices.
Good luck with that. If you check the big players pricing structure, you will discover they do the same. Reduced price for a period of time and then it goes up. At least Teksavvy indicates that very clearly in their offers, whereas the others annotate it and you have to read the fine print to learn how much the increase will be.I can't recommend teksavvy any more. The promotions are terrible, pay a reduced price for a few months then they jack it up. I would rather have one low price to begin with and no marketing gimmicks.
