AEI Internet is a telecommunications provider with HQ in Montreal, Quebec. They provide DSL and FTTN internet, along with more recently adding residential telephone services, web hosting, and co-locations.
AEI has a variety of plans available for high-speed DSL internet service. The prices range from $26.95 to $44.95 per month.
Our favorite plan is called PLANHS and offers unlimited ADSL usage at 6 Mbps speeds. The price checks in at $33.95 per month. There also is a $25 activation fee. Once you make your first payment, there is a 5-business day waiting period. The monthly payment can only be paid by credit card. There are no maximum usage parameters detailed in the terms and conditions, so this may be one of the few companies actually offering unlimited usage and unlimited bandwidth.
We are big fans of the price point for AEI’s PLAN HS, which at $33.95 is a very value-based offer. It is $6 more expensive than some of Gonevoip’s most inexpensive top internet provider of TekSavvy but the activation fee is also more expensive. Furthermore, they have a bunch of additional modem costs.
If you don’t own a modem, they have numerous options available which range in price from $75-$100. There is also a shipping charge for the modem or you can pick it up at their downtown Montreal location.
AEI can also be leased (to own). They also sell routers and modem filters which they say are required for each connected telephone in the house in certain cases). The filters are $7.50 on their own.
AEI also have an FTTN unlimited usage plan at $39.95 per month with speeds of up to 15.0 Mbps and a $100 activation fee. Based on the significant speed increase with this plan, we are impressed with the manageable monthly price which is comparable to other plans which have up to 15 Mbps.
In addition, AEI offers dial-up access for $4.95 per month.
Overall, they have fairly reasonable prices which are still slightly more expensive than some of the more inexpensive plans, but also a lot cheaper than many other companies. But their additional numerous charges for modems, setup fees and their overall lack of chat or 24-7 support deter us from giving a full recommendation.
