BluWest is an internet service provider which serves Southern Ontario. Their HQ are in Elmira, Ontario. BluWest bills themselves as the leader in wireless high speed internet.
 
BluWest has one of the more inexpensive plans on the market. Their basic residential package gives you unlimited data usage and bandwidth for $29.95 per month. For that price, you are receiving 2 Mbps download speeds and 512 Kbps upload speeds. There are no contracts and they say there are no hidden costs. However, it is worth noting that their installation fees of $199 are a bit on the expensive side. Furthermore, there are no terms and conditions to determine things such as usage caps, hidden fees, or any other unexpected surprises.
 
BluWest also have three other residential plans with much quicker speeds but at much more expensive prices. For $49.95 per month, you can increase the download speeds to 5 Mbps and the upload speeds to 1 Mbps. For $79.95, the download speeds go up to 6 Mbps while the upload speeds stay at 1 Mbps. Finally they also have a package for $99.95 which offers download speeds of up to 10 Mbps and the same 1 Mbps upload speeds.
 
They list the advantages of getting internet with them as guaranteed speed, no contracts, unlimited bandwidth, no hidden costs and prices that can’t be beat.
 
Beyond the information listed above, we know very little about BluWest or the details of their plan. Many parts of their website did not work correctly. When we called we were left on hold for an hour and were still unable to get through to anyone. All of their social media links on the website are also broken links. Even their contact form was not working.
 
Still based on their price alone, they are definitely worth looking further into. With no contracts, they may be worth trying out for a couple of months. They seem to have favorable reviews online from various websites we explored.
 
When we compare their price to Gonevoip’s top three, (on DSL & Cable) ISP providers, it comes in at the same price as Yak and Worldline (both also $29.95 per month), and falls just short of TekSavvy’s pricing at $27.99. However, as mentioned earlier, their $199 installation fee is very much more expensive when compared to the three aforementioned companies which all have setup fees at $10 and below. Granted that likely is to do to the specific setup for Wireless service.
 
No caps and no contracts are always options worth considering. Certainly in Southwest Ontario BluWest is bringing Internet to communities; though we'd would love to find our more information about BluWest services,  such as terms of services and policies. Also, would like to see it is easier to get a hold of them - either online, email or phone.

Poor service all round

This company is doomed to ultimate failure because of the disgusting attitude of it's owner Darrin. Any complaint about the awful reliability is met with rudeness, We are not the only ones to experience this.
