Poor Customer Service and Issue ResolutionI signed up with Distributel for Internet and Home Phone via VOIP (with transfer of phone number from previous provider requested). They communicated to me that a technician would contact me on a certain date to complete the set up. Receiving no call or visit, I called customer service. They tranferred me 3x times and I was finally explained that I could of just connected everything myself when I received the equipment...
When I did so, Internet worked fine but when I tried the home phone, I discovered they assigned me a new number and didn't port my current number as I requested...
I called right, got transferred multiple times and had to do a porting request. Which takes a week. Now everything works but I had to keep 2 phone and internet serviced in parallel for a week... Kind of kills some of those costs savings.

So far- really good (day 1); hope nothing changes.I was very pessimistic about Distributel because of all the -ve reviews on this site. I still gambled. Here are current reviews, I will change/update them if anything changes. Day1:- The box arrived on time, very easy setup (literally plug and play), so far 1/2 price and 2X the internet speed compared to previous provider! I am so far veryyyyyyy happy, fingers crossed- hope it stays like this.

Price JumpsModem rentals, Surcharges, and price increases every year. Not sure why but I am now paying $113 per month for internet when on Distributel's own website there is a cheaper price for the exact same service.
Done with these clowns. The internet works well...but the customer service, pricing ect just does not make sense. They are not competitive to other ISPs anymore...at all. After 6 years of this I've cancelled.

Distributel has been providing telecommunication services for close to three decades! Since it was founded in 1988, Distributel has become one of the most prominent Internet service providers in Canada.
In the 1990s, Distributel faced Bell Canada in court, under the premise that what they were doing wasn't legal. Fortunately, the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) ruled in favor of Distributel - a decision which opened the door for competition in the Canadian Long Distance market.
Distributel has offices in 8 cities across Canada. Whether you're looking for Internet services (Cable, DSL or FTTN), Home Phone, LD or TV, Distributel will try to sell products and varied plans.
Distributel offers a variety of High-Speed Internet plans. Surf, share, download, and binge however you like. All plans are UNLIMITED and never worry about overage fees again.
Below GoneVoIP reviews, all of Distributel Home Internet plans:
- 25 Mbps Down, 10 Mbps Up at $44.95 a month
- 50 Mbps Down, 10 Mbps Up at $49.95 a month
- 75 Mbps Down, 10 Mbps Up at $54.95 a month

If you're looking for more information, then check GoneVoIP Reviews from Distributel users. The main website (distributel.ca) tends to be a little bit slow, oh the irony, so be patient while researching and navigating.
The Distributel team is Canada-based and available to answer questions from 8 am to 9 pm EST Monday - Friday, and 9 am to 5 pm on weekends. The tendency GoneVoIP has noted over the past couple of years is that Distributel customer experience has taken a nosedive, and can't or it won't get up.

Internet Cable Wars: Battleground Ontario
It has been brewing for a few months. Competition in the Cable Internet segment, especially on Rogers's territory is fierce. This is mainly driven by, ironically Rogers itself by making available to smaller or independent ISP's Speeds that would otherwise look premium. Rogers's strategy seems to be working as small ISPs as VMedia or Velcom go neck a neck with other medium-sized internet companies such as TekSavvy.
Some of the available plans from Rogers' resellers are:

How to file a complaint against a Provider
If you feel you have a valid complaint against your telecom provider, you are not alone. According to an article in the Financial Post complaint rates rose dramatically in 2017-2018 by a staggering 57%.
In fact, the Commission for Complaints for Telecom-television Services (CCTS) reported even more startling numbers with a 75% increase in complaints between August 2017 and January 2018.
Most issues revolve around non-disclosure and people finding that their contracts have been inaccurately outlined by provider representatives. GoneVoIP offers an

Canada’s Internet Speeds and Prices
Types of internet access providers
Last summer we set out to analyze the status of the home internet connection speeds across the country. We picked fourteen representative major urban centers and analyzed factors such as maximum available download speed, average speed, and average monthly pricing.
This analysis shows some very interesting facts, for example, while Albertans are expected to pay less for gas than, say, Ontarians. However, on average Albertans will be paying some $7 more than Ontarians per month for equivalent internet
What is a good internet speed for home in Canada
If you are like the rest of the Canadians you probably have the same Internet connection for at least the past few years. But the demand for internet connection in our daily lives and homes keeps on growing. The reasons for the growing internet demand are certainly many. Though to group them easily, we have:
More mobile devices connected (phones, tablets, laptops..)
IoT Smart things (Smart speakers, Smart Plugs, Smart thermostats..)
High-Quality Streaming Content (HD, Ultra HD, and 4K)

Home Internet Services with no price hike
Rogers and Bell are at it. Home Internet prices are set to increase, yes, again. According to sources at Rogers and Bell, the price increase is due to investments in their respective networks. Though possible seems odd price hike is almost in unison. Rogers's price hike is effective March 12th and Bell's will be in April. These always seem to fall around the same time for the past few years.
Typical Rogers's increase is $4 for plans with a download speed of
The Internet of Things
The last decade has seen the Internet evolve in leaps and bounds – specifically in technologies pertaining to the cloud, big data, and pay-for-play computing services. Amazon Web Services officially launched in 2006; prior to that, on-demand utility computing services were only prevalent in university labs and high-end enterprise data centers. These days, anyone can deploy and run a virtual data center in the cloud, as cloud computing pricing models allow customers to pay only for what they use, and
