I live in Toronto so the only cable company you can go with is Rogers. I have BEV, and Rogers is always harrassing me to go back. See the apartment building I live in is equipped with your choice of either Rogers Cable or ExpressVu. SO for the past 2 years now Rogers is blitzing our neighbourhood, seen as 4 apartment buildings have the choice and the majority of people have gone with BEV. I get so annoyed when the guy knocks at my door and tries to convince me over and over to go with Rogers for cable and internet access. I tell him I am happy with what i want and yet the guy persists. Last night was the 5th time in 4 weeks that a Rogers salesman has come to my door. I have called Rogers about this on going harrassment for me to switch from ExpressVu to cable when I am happy with my BEV. For what I get on BEV, to get the exact samething I would be paying alot more. Seems all Rogers wants to do is use the customer as the pawn in a tug of war, trying to, pull away the customers of thier competitor and take that dollar away from me to them. Man I try to be nice to the salemen who come to the door, but I am gonna blow up at the next one because they say the same crap and it gets annoying. Save this, save that. Man I said to Rogers today when I called that if I wanted cable I would call you, so leave me alone. They said that it is the job of the salesmen to see if people will come to Rogers and then she asks why I prefer BEV. Then tries the same talk to me.
Oh and the best line she said to me.."satellite customers alot of them, go with basic cable for those signal interuptions during the winter"
I laughed and said "Oh really? Do you know what would cause the signal interuption during the winter?"
She says the weather and I said snow build up on your dish. You can get a dish cover or spray Pam lightly on the dish and the snow slides right off of it. But I told her nice try, you get an E for effort.
So any suggestions on what I can do to stop these harrassing knocks at the door and the harrassing phone calls from Rogers as well?
I read this at a different forum, and for those of you being harassed by Rogers (I get harassed still as a customer even). Just tell them to F.O. and threaten them with a lawsuit.
