CanNet Telecom, also known as cannettel, is a Canadian ISP HQ in North York, Ontario. In spite of a rather short history, established in 2009 only, CanNet Telecom has become a top choice for many looking to scape the telecom giants.
As an ISP CanNet does focus only on providing cable broadband internet access. Cannet is available in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Quebec, and Ontario. It shall be mentioned, CanNet had been deemed to be one of the largest independent internet service providers in Canada. CanNet call themselves as the largest third-party provider for the main Cable operators in the country (Rogers, Bell, Cogeco, Videotron, and Shaw)
Let us shift attention now to review CanNet internet plans. We found there are currently 5 internet plans. We'll detail them below.
- Cable 5: Down 5 Mbps / Up 1 Mbps @ $29.98 / month
- Cable 15: Down 15 Mbps / Up 1.5 Mbps @ $34.98 / month
- Cable 30: Down 30 Mbps / Up 5 Mbps @ $39.98 / month
- Cable 75: Down 75 Mbps / Up 7.5 Mbps @ $39.98 / month
- Cable 150: Down 150 Mbps / Up 15 Mbps @ $69.98 / month
In our CanNet Review we find the plans to be in the right price point with good speeds levels, and since all plans come with unlimited usage that makes the CanNet Internet plans even better.
Having said that let us continue with CanNet internet plans reviews, now let's review the additional fees. First the good news, there is no shipping for any of the plans. That is great! Though there is a rather disproportionate Activation Fee, also called Processing Fee, of $99.95 for each of the five internet plans. Though the strangeness with fees does not stop just with a colossal setup fee. We found that all plans include a Discount of $10, which comes to neutralize the monthly fee of $9.98 per month for modem rental. It is odd the discount is presented that way, that lead us to believe at some point the modem rental and discount will not be cancelling each other.
In the final note of consideration is that CanNet internet regardless of the plan you chose does not require a contract nor time commitment.
In all, in our CanNet Internet review, we find many positive aspects and see great potential. The speed, usage and monthly rate CanNet offer on the internet plans are mostly right. Though the lowlight is the Activation Fee; definitively needs to be lowered. In a similar fashion could introduce support for BYOD to support other/more modems. While CanNet may be a good Cable Internet alternative, why not also offer DSL or Fiber? Hence giving more flexibility and more choices to all.
