Source Cable vs. Bell
Service & Rate Comparison


Source Cable appreciates your business! At Source, we never take anything for granted and we're working harder than ever to provide you with the best television, internet and home phone services at the lowest possible prices. We're a local company that has recently joined forces with Rogers Communications. We provide free technical service calls and a 24/7 technical support line. We've invested heavily in our facilities so we can continually add more services and improve our technical quality. We now offer over 600 channels including 175 High Definition channels. Plus,unlike most providers, Source offers unlimited internet usage.

 

We're not against competition. Far from it. Competition is healthy and it makes us all better.

 

If you are considering switching to another provider, we do encourage you to read the "fine print" carefully.  What appears to be a great deal, often turns into something far less than expected over time. Watch out for the additional monthly phone and Internet charges, questionable technology, sub par customer service, forced bundling options, long term contracts, hefty installation, activation & cancellation fees.

Thank you for your time and thanks again for being our customer!
