    Okay.. so i dont really want this to become another of the many rogers vs. bsHighspeed internet debates.

    bsHighspeed isnt available in my area so im going with rogers... only problem is, installation is going to cost me 150.

    I cant accept this... knowing how many times a year they must offer some kind of setup deal (free installation, first month free) or something along those lines..

    So my question is, where can i get a 'free installation' flyer or where can i go to get cable internet with free installation?

    call rogers...say you were offered the friends & family package, but have been out of town the past few weeks...i believe you get free install plus the connection only costs you $20 per month for 6 months...

    wow.. that sounds great... can you give me a few more details about said 'friends and family' package? that way when i call, i dont sound like a completely vague individual :)

    Best way to get anything is just to say you were offered it before and you'd like that deal now.

    Also works if you say that you'll have to call up "_____ to see if they'll offer me a free install."

    Competiton is lovely isn't it?

    When I moved back to London and called Rogers I basically just bantered with the dude on the phone for half an hour and explicitly stated that I was (am) poor and couldn't afford much. I also told him that Bell had offered me a free install and cheap monthly rate and basically said "what are you willing to do for me?"

    I'm now paying Rogers $20 a month for the 4 months I'm in London -- just make sure you ask if there are any "hidden" costs i.e. modem rental or any of their other bullshit charges. I think on my first bill they tried charging me $5 for some cable outlet access fee -- I called them up and told them that wasn't part of the deal, and they quickly removed the charge from my bill.

    Just act like a big shot and they treat you like a big shot :D

    isn't being a big shot having a lot of money?

    Rogers will give you everything for free if you tell them that's all you will pay. $0

    P.S. Sympatico sucks!

    in retrospect I wish I'd used the edit button

    I meant that when I called back after the BS charge I acted all pissy and they were quick to fix the problem

    what you meant was basically act brown
  12. SlipperyPete

    SlipperyPete TRIBE Member

    no, what meant were talk good engulish.

    13 degrees between your parents and still not nearly any grey matter between your big ears.

    SlipperyPete TRIBE Member

    as discussed earlier, the rocks are merely ballast
    the sawdust was to absorb the portion of my brain liquified by yesterday's revelling
    shit? no shit. something something you smell like shit? YES!!1

    I think it's actually more like 8 or 9

    coincidentally also slipperypete's IQ

    Wow...kutos to them, they must have been professional students for a while...lol.
    Question now is, what does someone do what that many degrees??

    (Sorry for the hi-jack....)

    I have Rogers as well. Haven't had any problems since Dec. and I was on HighSpeed since it's conception.
    Rogers wins in my books because their upload cap is higher than Sympatico's AND the d/l is mad crazy sometimes.
    The intro rate is a good thing too, I just hope the Sept. billing is detailed.

    <unpredictable>they operate quickie marts</unpredictable>
  19. Fir3start3r

    I wouldn't necessarilty call that 'unpredictable'.
    They obviously understand that even with all their degrees, no one can pay them what they're really worth in the form of a job.
    Being an entreprenuer/business owner/franchise owner is the only way to make serious money and have some control.
    I applaude their insight. ;)
