After the Home Internet rates for some of the most popular plans in Ontario were set higher we set a mission. We had to do a research for the Best Home Internet Plans in Ontario. We are comparing the traditional telecom giants we typically love to dis-love, with comparable plans from last mile providers.   We are not using any fancy ISP comparison tool. In fact, we don’t need one, at we find the best internet plans available in Ontario right on our fingertips, as we work with most of the providers.

We did, however, set the bar high in terms of the home internet plans we wanted to compare. In here we are looking at plans we consider the ideal standard. With at least 50 Mbps download and at least 10 Mbps upload. Of course with unlimited internet usage.  Nowadays every household demands unlimited usage, with streaming services like Netflix, Crave TV or YOUTUBE TV is impossible to stay within a usage cap. Plus consider the plethora of devices we have connected to the internet. Everything is connected to the internet these days. From the TV to a speaker, to the thermostat to tablets etc. Hence in our search for the best internet plans in Ontario, we focused on unlimited usage plans, as it is a new kind of normal.

We tried to list all fees and make it as simple and transparent as possible, however, it could happen a provider sneak up a fee we did not list.

We listed the Technology used as a tip for those thinking on switching. For example, if you are currently with Bell then is best for you to use plans that say Fiber as you probably save install fees. On the other hand, if you are with Rogers; then packages with Cable Technology are likely to avoid you installation fees.

We also noted if a promotional price exists associated with the plan. Looking for the specific duration of the promotion. In our final pricing calculation, we calculated using the FULL pricing, as promotions are in most cases short-lived. We in Ontario, are likely to keep the same Internet provider for years to come so we have to see and consider the pricing in full. It may not be the best a limited 3, 6 or 12 months promo pricing in the long run.

Now you know some of your options. As astonishing as it may sound some people could be saving more than $500 a year simply by switching providers for the same or better service! So with that, happy Home Internet shopping Ontario!
