Apexia is a telecommunications provider who provides residential internet service for dial-up, DSL and ADSL connections. Their HQ is in Barrie, Ontario.
Apexia offers a basic DSL package for $39.00 which allows for 300 GB, up to 6 Mbps of download speeds and 0.8 Mbps of upload speeds. They will sell you a modem for $50 or rent you the modem for $5 per month. 1 dynamic IP address is included. There is also a $7.00 monthly dry loop fee.
We like the fact that if you self-install your equipment, then you only need to pay $20 for the installation.
Otherwise, you will be paying $75 for the installation, as well as any additional hardware costs. If you don’t have a network card installed, there will be an additional unnamed fee. Another option is using a 4-port wireless DSL modem/router which can be purchased for $95.00 or rented for $10.00/month.
Apexia will also charge you an additional $5 per month for a static IP Address.
If any troubleshooting issues arise, Apexia provides onsite service rates of $75 per hour during normal business hours and $115 from 5 pm – 10 pm. This seems to be expensive to us.
Apexia has three tiers of ADSL plans and one VDSL package. They are called the ADSL Mercury, ADSL Venus, ADSL Earth, and VDSL Mars. All four of these plans also offer 300 GB. The Mercury plan gives you 7 Mbps download speeds and 1 Mbps upload speeds for $45. The ADSL Venus plan gives you 10 Mbps download speeds and 1 Mbps upload speeds for $50. The ADSL Earth plan gives you up to 15 Mbps download speeds and 1 Mbps of upload speeds. Finally, the VDSL Mars plan gives you download speeds of up to 25 Mbps and upload speeds of up to 10 Mbps for $65.
Finally, Apexia also carries an unlimited usage dial-up plan for $23 per month. This seems to be on the expensive side for dial-up.
Their basic DSL plan comes to $46 per month with the dry loop fees, which is nearly 2/3 more expensive than Gonevoip’s top three ISP recommendations of Altima Telecom, Heronet and Distributel. We see no advantage in choosing Apexia over them, the fact is you may get more speed, with unlimited usage at cheaper costs. So is better to shop around.
