FVN Alliance Reviews and Plans
|Setup Fee||Long Distance Rates|
FVN Alliance is a Canadian telecommunications provider. The company was established in 2006 and its headquarters are in Markham, Ontario.
FVN Alliance offers everything from Internet services to cable TV to both residential and business VOIP services. Other non-communication services provided by FVN Alliance include alarm systems, printing services, and office clouding software.
In our review of FVN Alliance, we will focus on their residential VOIP service and see how it compares with GoneVoip’s top three residential VOIP service providers.
FVN Alliance offers a home line that includes such features as caller ID, name display, call waiting, call forwarding and voice mail.
All incoming calls to your phone lines are unlimited and free of charge, which is always a bonus. Any long-distance or overseas calls are charged by the minute according to the associated long distance plan with your line. This is vague wording.
There is a one-time activation charge of $70. Additional options include the GTA905 plan which adds the entire 905 area to your local calling area for an additional $3 per month, the Local Canada Plan which adds all of Canada to your local plan for an additional $5 per month, and the North America plan which is an additional $15.
Existing phone numbers can be kept for a $20 onetime charge. We are not fans of companies that charge to keep a phone number.
In our review of the FVN Alliance, we feel that there is not enough information listed on the monthly cost, which is not listed anywhere on the website. So we have to assume that outside of the one-time cost, that as long as you only call within the 416 area code, and have everyone call you instead, this phone is free of charge to use.
The only costs listed are for the additional features and since all incoming calls are free of charge, then you actually can have this line for free. Whether that is actually the case is worth a conversation when you call to sign up. It seems a bit suspicious to us.
Companies that offer clear, concise and simple details on their plans and are fully transparent are what we hope all companies should do. Companies that are vague on costs and charges are a dime a dozen and truly leave a black eye for phone providers.
We feel FVN Alliance probably falls well under the ladder, but we hope we are wrong.
