What do I need to know about the Cogeco SMS program?

With our SMS (text messaging) program, you are consenting to receive text messages from Cogeco at the mobile number(s) that you have provided.

Good to know:

  • You can decide to stop receiving these communications at any time.
  • Consenting to receive marketing text messages from us is not required to purchase Cogeco goods or services. 

Program description

We are using an SMS delivery tool to send you text messages, which will be used to:

  • Inform you of upcoming equipment deliveries
  • Confirm upcoming appointments
  • Inform you of any outages or give you pertinent information about Cogeco

Frequency of messages

The number of text messages you receive will vary depending on where you are in your Cogeco experience. Initially, when you activate your new services, you will receive an estimated 3 text messages, which is more than you will receive going forward. As you become more comfortable using your services, the frequency of messages will decrease.


Message and data rates may apply for each text message sent or received in connection with Cogeco’s text messages, as outlined in your mobile phone service rate plan, plus any applicable roaming charges (please contact your mobile phone provider for more information on your rate plan). Cogeco does not impose a separate fee for sending text messages.
