CableVision Broadband Internet Giveaway Promo

January 6, 2015

Bermuda CableVision today[Jan 6] announced a Broadband Internet Giveaway promotion, saying they will “provide one month free 50 Meg MERGE internet service to four internet customers. In addition, one ‘Super Lucky’ MERGE customer will have their current service upgraded automatically to 100 Mbps – the fastest residential speed in Bermuda.”

The company said, “This giveaway builds on the ’Super Lucky’ promotion started in December with CableVision giving back to its loyal customers. Twelve subscribers were randomly selected to win 25 Megs of internet, $100 off their bill or 10 video-on-demand [VOD] movies. All CableVision TV subscribers were also given a free TV preview over the holiday season.”

Terry Roberson, CEO, Bermuda CableVision, says, “The ‘Super Lucky’ promotion resonated well with our customers and inspired this new giveaway. We greatly appreciate our loyal subscribers and want to make sure they know that, especially during the holidays, but also throughout the New Year.”

The 300 Meg Giveaway is only for promotion use and not for sale at this time. It is exclusively available to select CableVision subscribers.

Mr. Roberson says, “Right now, we are promoting our current network capability with select ‘Super Lucky’ customers in a larger effort to spread faster internet service throughout the Island. Bermuda joins Jamaica, Cayman, Gibraltar, Grenada, Trinidad and St. Lucia who all have 100 Mbps service in operation today.”

These promotions follow the ‘25% Storm Credit’ offer where every customer received an across-the-board price reduction in November after the back-to-back Hurricanes.

Those who would like to enter can sign up at cablevision.bm/300meg.

    I just want them to support their current services. My internet has been barely 25% of the contracted speeds for three weeks now but since I don’t use Cablevision for my ISP provider they won’t schedule a visit to test the line. Their messages imply that if I used Cablevision for my ISP I’d get better service.

    Cablevision blames my ISP. The ISP blames Cablevision. I’m stuck in the middle having to pay both of them and getting no service. Welcome to business in Bermuda.

      I have the all in one 15 Mbps package for $175.95 per month. I am lucky if I get 5 Mbps on a good day. Despite modem resets from CV and a change of modem, my service still has not improved. My highest upload speed was 10.91 one month ago. I average just over 5 Mbps upload on a good day. Streaming on Apple TV on a weekend and some evenings can be extremely frustrating, especially when I prefer to stream versus cable tv.

      What am I actually paying for CV? This is getting ridiculous. Who is policing CV?

      • fedup says:

        15Mb/s in a first world country would cost less than $40/month.
        But in Bermuda, everything has to be imported, so they can justify the high cost of shipping data in and out of the island…right?

    Perhaps CV should focus on customer complaint turn around time. 2 weeks is not acceptable wait time for for a service person to make a house call.

    Wow….

    100 Mbps, 300 Mbps sounds impressive.

    I just wish I can actually get the 8 Mbps that I pay for. Even though I am paying for 8 Mbps, I am lucky if I get 3 Mbps or 4 Mbps.

    Can this be your next project Cablevision? Provide the speeds that people are actually paying for?

    We are all being held to ransom by the greedy live for today I.P.S. ?

    Various speeds of their service have an adverse affect on our economy, it is about time .

    What if the power company cut back on voltage.

    What if employees played the same trick and cut back or slow down on service in the work place.
    Do you know what junk yards dogs do ?.

    How would you like it if a buss took two hours to get to town.

    More than ever, there is the need for greater efficiency.

    We need to move forward, it is called progress, as we are on the brink of the worlds second Great Depression.
