Cablevision Offering Internet Access & Service

June 4, 2015

Bermuda CableVision today [June 4] announces that it is now an Internet Service Provider and is offering a combined internet access and internet service from one company. The combined service starts at $64.95 and has no setup costs for customers.

CableVision’s CEO, Terry Roberson, explains: “Bermuda residents have grown accustomed to paying two companies for their internet service. For years, they have paid one company for access and another for service.

“We’re delighted to be taking advantage of new industry rules and offering customers a truly combined experience – one bill, one service – at an affordable price. Anyone who has ever been stuck between their access and service providers when trying to get customer support will appreciate how much easier it is to deal with one company.”

The company said, “Designed with customers in mind, the signup process for CableVision Internet has been made as simple as possible with CableVision absorbing 100 per cent of setup costs for both hardware and installation.

“Also recognising that customers want minimal interruption to their lives, CableVision offers an On-Time Guarantee for installations, meaning a CableVision technician will arrive on time and, in some cases, complete an installation in as little as 30 minutes.

“As part of the new service, Bermuda CableVision is launching a new advertising campaign today. Customers can sign up for internet service online at or by calling the 24-hour customer service line: 292-5544.”

    About time Bermuda caught up with the rest of the world. Tired of the finger pointing between BTC and my ISP. I like the idea of holding one business accountable

    • Dockyard Lackey says:

      Funny how they introduce this the day after Digicel buy out BTC. Don’t jump just yet. The price war is just beginning.

      • Mockingjay says:

        Now can we get competition for Belco.

        • Ed Case says:

          Mock: There has always been the opportunity for competition for BELCO. All you have to do is simply generate electricity for less than BELCO does, and they are finished.

          What are you waiting for?

        The old CEO of digicel. Is now working for cable vision

    Logic is already doing this with reselling BTC’s DSL. If you are still paying both, you need to call Logic. Costs are less.

    • Come Correct says:

      So is quality of service. Haven’t had an issue since switching to TBI.

    Hip Hip Hooray!!!!! Bout Time!!

  4. Terry says:

    Don’t count your chickens before they hatch.

    BELCO will raise their rates some more since a lot of this stuff is still ‘overhead’.

    A quick peruse of the shareholders of many of these companies come up with the same names and corporate ties.

    Competition definitely has its advantages. Wish it were that easy for our monopolistic power grid. Even with solar panels I understand Belco still retains a good portion of the charge? Not sure how that all works but I look forward to some type of change there as well hopefully.

    • YADON says:

      It works like that because you have to pay to use the grid,if you want to sell back current.It is very expensive to install and maintain a transmission and distribution system.

    don’t they offer this already. MERGE?

    • what... says:

      Exactly what I was thinking, CV has been ofering this service at this price for at least 3-4 months (Maybe longer) I think the only difference is that they are no install costs…

    • Time Shall Tell says:

      You’re correct but if you take a look at their website you will see they state “formerly called Merge” right on the internet section of their site. So basically this is a re-branding with maybe a couple small changes here & there but at least their upfront about it. Either way, as long as it goes in the direction of offering competition to drive down prices then I’m all for it.

  7. ImJustSayin says:

    when they stop trimming back the bandwidth at certain hours than maybe I’ll jump on the bandwagon. They can’t even give you reliable VOD service..

    So! When The cable’s down you get a doublw whammy. No tv and no internet!

    My dsl worked as soon as my lights went on after gonzalo. Cable was back to normal a month and 4 service calls later!

  9. LathanG says:

    There’s a double whammy for BTC too – no internet, no phone. There are risks for everything.

    My own experience was that my cablevision went back up quickly. When I signed up for their internet originally, they came after hours and I’ve never had a problem since.

    No issues here with CV
