B2B2C is a seasoned veteran when it comes to providing telecommunication services. They are one of the few service providers which offer the telecommunications triple play (TV, Internet, and Phone).
B2B2C was founded way back in 1995 and their headquarters can be found at 1575 Henri-Bourassa west suite 610 Montréal, Québec H3M3 3A9 Canada. B2B2C is proud of the business solutions that it provides, going as far as to say that they outplay the giants at work in Canada. However, this review will focus on the residential internet solutions that B2B2C has to offer!
B2B2C offers a residential cable plan they call the Cable 5 plan. This plan allows for downloading speeds of up to 5 mbps, and uploading speeds of up to 1 mbps. The bandwidth limit allocated to this plan is meager 20 gigs, which we believe is not enough to contend with other high-quality service providers. This plan comes down to a total of $29.95 per month, which if compared to other internet service providers is a bit expensive. For example, Montreal-DSL offers the exact plan for the exact price but has an unlimited usage cap! 150 gigs of transfer allowance are very minimal considering average streaming of Youtube videos can amount to 2 to 4 GBs a day! Not only is the usage rate extremely low, no mention of unlimited usage time was made. This begs us to ask whether or not this plan can get a regular user throughout the month without having to deal with overage charges.
The overage charges are $1.00 per GB which insanely high considering that most service providers charge between $0.50 to $0.25 only. However, an add-on of 50 GBs for $5.00 per month is also accessible. This add-on, however, cannot compensate for the high price and unusually low bandwidth limit. With this add-on, the user will be charged $34.99 per month for 70 GBs of data! Yak internet offers a 6 mbps plan with a usage limit of 60 GBs for $29.99!
Most internet service providers allocate a download speed of at least 6 mbps for their basic plans. B2B2C offers only 5, which is quite disappointing considering the price. All in all B2B2C needs to work out their pricing for their plans, especially when it comes to allocating a decent amount of bandwidth. If this plan had a limit of at least 70 GBs without any extra cost, it could have been a great contender on the internet services market!
