Terrible customer service, poor tech

Atrocious to deal with. Horrible to contact. Useless, banal information provided by un-caring, helpless tech support. Sending letters of complaint via their published complaint process, which guarantees a response, results in no response. Lol. There are two new isp's trenching on our street now. I'll be disconnected from cogeco asap. After about 10-12 years of being treated like a captive customer, I'm finally free!!!

OMG. I am SO with you on this. EVERY WORD you typed above. Well spotted indeed! They are THE WORST EVER. I haven't phoned them in TWO years after going head to head with management back then over endless ongoing issues which took over 11 months of back and forth and, too many hours to even tally and a new computer expense to resolve. They blamed everything on APPLE for months and we actually thought something was wrong w/ our computer and spent over 2k for a new set up finally. Sold the other one and come to find out nothing was wrong with it. What was WRONG was Cogeco's untrained, unaware, customer service / tech support and management. For over a year I couldnt figure out why over 100 resumes Id sent out didnt so much as get a response. Went through logistics and settings a million times. They assured me it was either Apple or no one was emailing. Months later I find out that one of my main emails had a glitch which prevented incoming mail using that specific address. It's always Apples fault according to them when clearly it was their issue. THey HID stuff from the public, didn't come clean about issues going on complex server clashes and I believe fiber optics, that went south but they kept charging customers top dollar. SO here I am 2 years later and I phone today for ONE simple reason. TO take down an old, useless, messed up corrupt EMail account. I get service that is HORRENDOUS with reps who can barely understand my english and I have to explain TO THEM what their screen options mean? On top of that they messed up my account worse than when I first picked up the phone. AND, accepted a PIN that was not even legit ( but somehow worked ? ) AND created a second account ( when i explained I already had one ) by telling me it was just for that moment to be able to get into a portal. They dont KNOW a thing about what they are doing. I specifically asked them if there were any changes or updates to discuss after all its been 2 years. since I last called them (Oh no, they tell me, everything is FINE.) and they attempt to connect me to billing . I sit for 25+ minutes with no one picking up. So I look at my online invoice and Im being charged 70.00 more this month due to loyalty program being up. No one could mention that when I asked ? I NEVER thought Id find any company as diabolical and bad as Bell turned out over the years ( and Id been a loyal customer for 17 years with them) but COGECO has easily moved into their spot. I could NOT believe that they even considered this real customer SERVICE and have managed to WORSEN in the past 2 years.. God help anyone that actually needs service or has dire / expedient issues. Thing is, they don't even remotely CARE.

Go with any other company than Cogeco

Find any company other than Cogeco to go with for internet. Takes weeks for someone to actually take u serious when you call with internet or wifi issues. After 3 weeks of calling they finally send a technician who tells us in 4 days another Technician will come out to fix issue .. 5 days later I call and find out it will be another 5 days .. what a run around . Working from home .. no internet or wifi.. good luck.

Terrible service, can\'t supply what they sell

Sick & tired of spending more time trying to find something to watch than I do watching it. Cogeco is so screwed up I don't know what channels I'm paying for now. Channels I pat for often come up as needing a subscription & channels I choose have different content than their guide lists. The least they should provide is a guide listing only channels I pay for.

Cogeco Inc has very historical roots being one of the oldest companies to still be operating in Canada. They were founded back in 1956 and have made great strides in the telecommunications world up till now. Cogeco is headquarter in Montréal, Québec H3B 0B3 Canada. They boast a relative large employee workforce of 5,000 strong. 

They offer a variety of services ranging from Television, VoIP, internet solutions and many more! Our focus will be to review the starter residential plan that Cogeco has to offer to see whether or not it is up to par with other service providers!

Find here in this review all Cogeco Home Internet plans:

  • UltraFibre 90: 90 Mbps Download, Unlimited at $65 per month
  • UltraFibre 180: 180 Mbps Download,Unlimited Usage at $65 per month
  • UltraFibre 360: 360 Mbps Download, Unlimited Usage at $70 per month
  • UltraFibre 1Gig: 1Gig Download, Unlimited Usage at $75 per month. 

Cogeco has revamped the plans to appeal to hungry data users. Similar to Other services providers that go out of their way to provide unlimited usage times to customers if they know that they have provided an insufficient bandwidth limit, however, Cogeco sticks to its guns, and offers pretty much the same, albeit a bit of higher sticker price.
