"Our HSI packages are designed to meet our customers' varied and constantly evolving Internet needs. But we know our customers all crave greater speed and capacity, regardless of their own specific individual needs. And because we're committed to offering our customers the best experience possible, we wanted to significantly enhance our HSI packages in Québec – without increasing prices – and still provide the same outstanding customer service," says Ron Perrotta, Vice-President, Marketing and Strategic Planning at Cogeco Cable.

New Cogeco Cable customers who bundle services will save $5 a month for 12 months on their HSI service. For a limited time in Québec, customers who subscribe to more than one service can bundle the Mini for $20.95 per month, Lite Plus for $26.95 per month and Standard for $38.95 per month.
