Review from Canadianisp.caNo, I don_t recommend this carrier and let me tell you why. So basically I live on a really old street that has existed for over a century, but for some bizarre reason it_s not on Canada Posts autocomplete system so when I go to some websites that use that system when I try to type my address in it won_t come up, I have contacted Canada Post about the issue.
Anywho I_ve been living at this same address for almost a decade now and have had a myriad of DSL or cable services, either from Cogeco, start or teksavvy but I did have ebox for a few months with adsl about 5 years ago. So my address definitely MORE than qualifies for service. Anywho I hear that ebox is selling 1 gigabit service in cogeco areas and I am intrigued, I go to their website and long behold my address won_t autopopulate in the system, figuring it_s because they use canada posts bad autocomplete system for addresses. I type my moms address in which is only a few blocks away from mine and it shows she can get the gigabit service... (at this point I will mention I am a current cogeco customer with gigabit service and was just looking to switch to an alternative).
I call up ebox and they ask for my name and then my address.... she tries to punch in my address and it won_t come up. I then have to go through the whole song and dance routine with her about how if they are using Canada posts system to autocomplete addresses it WILL NOT WORK. She tells ME _the customer_ to call Canada post myself and fix the issue with them. Reluctantly and annoyingly I call Canada post and they submit a ticket, and then 3 days later I get an email saying ticket complete but they literally did nothing, no issue fixed no nothing _surprise surprise...._.
At this point I call ebox back and try to fully explain the situation with my address (not just my address in particular but the entire street). She asks for my address and then just echos what the previous rep said about my address not being in Canada Posts system and that I don_t qualify for service because of it (ironic considering their foot print would be identical to cogeco, start, teksavvy etc). She said _Their_ technicians wouldn_t be able to verify if I had service so they couldn_t do it (as if they have any of _their_ own technicians...). I literally told her to go to cogeco.ca and search for availability at my address, which she does and then comes back to say that I do qualify for gigabit service with cogeco at my address, and I also persisted to tell her I have had cable service with start as well as teksavvy and I had adsl with ebox 5 years ago. She then googles my street address on google maps and finds it and the street view but all she does is echo that they can_t sell me service because my address doesn_t come up in Canada posts system. I ask if they have a way to overwrite it since they know I can get service at my address given what I_m telling them and that she just verified availability on cogeco_s website. She just says the same thing that because the address doesn_t come up in their system that she can_t sell me service.
Oh, at this point I will mention she_s not just saying they can_t provide me with gigabit service, she_s saying they can_t provide ANY service whatsoever (not cable, not dsl.. NOTHING) even though all the other companies can.
I was super annoyed at this point mainly because she clearly didn_t have access to any REAL ordering method and it_s like she was just using their website to submit orders (seriously?? a rep using a customer website) since she couldn_t do a manual qualification and order submission. She just kept echoing over and over again about Canada post not having my address in the system. WHAT INTERNET PROVIDER RELIES ON CANADA POST??!!?? CANADA POST HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH ME GETTING ANY UTILITIES! INCLUDING CABLE OR PHONE. Anywho, I try to give her some feedback that perhaps they need to fix their system and not rely on Canada post to find addresses and she tells me there is absolutely nothing wrong with THEIR system and it_s all canada posts fault. I_m sorry lady, but if your system won_t allow you to punch in an address manually and will only allow you to enter in an address with Canada posts autocomplete, IT_S EBOX_S LIMITED CAPABILITIES, bell.ca I have the same issue checking service availability as well but at least there I can hit _can_t find address? click here to enter it in manually_ and it will work just fine upon manual entry. Serious ebox, take responsibility for your bad system that you have for your reps... they seriously can_t do a manual qualification and order? are they really just punching peoples info in on your junk website?

The additional fees of the dry loop may apply. Same thing with installation fees, though EBOX chooses not to disclose them upfront. Consider dry loops that are only required for customers that do not have a traditional phone line.

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

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
