Keep up the good work!Very good service. Asked for a second installation at a remote location after a few years. Usama from Customer Service knew how to offer me a good deal. Ask for this guy and you will be satisfied! Knowledgeable, proffesional and knows how to do business. I am Gemstelecom customer for a few years and I am happy I've got rid of Videotron. These guys never send me letters with bad surprises, like those big companies that complain every year that they don't make enough money on customers. I started with a trial and I remained to hook up with them for years. Keep up the good work!

Terrible Customer Service!!!Avoid these guys like the plague!
Very difficult to get your modem deposit back. It took them 2 weeks to reply to my request, and now it's going to take another 3 weeks (minimum!) to get the deposit back. They make things overly complicated- they force you to go to your bank to request a bill overpayment, etc...
They are very unhelpful on the phone and keep saying that their "policy" won't allow them to send me a cheque. Funny, they had no problems receiving any money, but when it's time to return it, they suddenly have very convoluted policies.
This is their way to hoping that people quit and that they don't have to return the deposits. Insane!

First we never ask for any Modem deposit to any one ever. Modems in most cases is always free rental. Your refund is of service you never used and Refund is made same way as you made the payment, you paid via internet Banking so we do not have you account number to deposit Back. When we asked you to contact your Bank to ask for return the IB Payment you said the account is closed, we then asked you to send the proof along with your new bank account and we will deposit the payment back to you. We are waiting for your new Bank account where we can deposit your refund.

internet serviceHave been with Gems for a few months now and I am loving their internet service. It's dependable and the price is awesome. Anytime I have any problems I just restart the modem and it all works fine again.

Gemstelecom is a veteran when it comes to providing internet services having been founded way back in 1993. With over two decades of experience in the telecommunications industry, Gemstelecom is a serious contender for being one of the best competitors in the internet services market. Gemstelecom states that their foremost priority is providing customer satisfaction in whatever way possible. We find this to be an absolutely commendable trait in business. The headquarters of Gemstelecom can be found at 2 Toronto Street, Suite 299 Toronto, ON M5C 2B5.
Let us now review one of Gemstelecom most prominent internet plans for residential users.
Gemstelecom is currently offering a wonderful promotion plan with its basic cable Internet 5 Mbps Down & 1 Mbps Up unlimited plan.
Furthermore, this plan has an unlimited data transfer limit and is offered at a paltry price of $24.99 per month! This is by far one of the best pricing values we have seen on a residential internet plan for a long time now.
Another powerhouse in the internet service world is Comwave, and their cheapest unlimited plan goes for a total of $49.95 per month!
These are all current Home Internet plans from GemsTelecom.
- 6 Mbps Down, 0.8 Mbps Up at $29.99 / month
- 7 Mbps Down, 1 Mbps Up at $31.99 / month
- 10 Mbps Down, 7 Mbps Up at $33.99 / month
- 15 Mbps Down, 10 Mbps Up at $36.99 / month
- 25 Mbps Down, 10 Mbps Up at $39.99 / month
- 50 Mbps Down, 10 Mbps Up at $49.99 / month
- 100 Mbps Down, 20 Mbps Up at $79.99 / month
- 5 Mbps Down, 1 Mbps Up at $24.99 / month
- 30 Mbps Down, 5 Mbps Up at $44.99 / month
- 75 Mbps Down, 10 Mbps Up at $54.99 / month
- 150 Mbps Down, 15 Mbps Up at $64.99 / month
- 250 Mbps Down, 20 Mbps Up at $79.99 / month
Not only does Gemstelecom offers unlimited usage but they are also cheaper than most of the big telcos capped plans. Most service providers use unlimited plans as a means to boost the pricing on their plan, however, Gemstelecom is doing the opposite which is absolutely absurd and amazing!
Not only is the promotional pricing of this plan more than perfect, but another part of this promotion has left us speechless! For a limited time, customers who opt into Gemstelecom service will not only have the installation fee waived or reduced, but the monthly charge for modem rental is also exempted! This is absolutely wonderful considering most service providers charge up to an extra $10 per month for modem rental fees.
Upon reviewing the terms and conditions policy of Gemstelecom we found no mention of throttling usage or using ITMP to control bandwidth allocation among users of internet plans. This is yet another aspect about Gemstelecom Home Internet that makes them stand out from the rest.
In all honesty, Gemstelecom has done everything right, and that is something we, at GoneVoIP, seldom find. From the pricing to the additional features or the fees being waived or discounted, and the quality of service, Gemstelecom is getting everything right.
Gemstelecom stated that customer satisfaction is the best way to earn your business, and they are proving their words with the amazing service they are providing. Surely, recommended!
