iSpeed was founded back in 2005 and has been operating in the Central to Northern Okanagan region ever since then. They provide internet services, VoIP solutions, and IPTV. For the small range of services they offer they have been flourishing and gaining positive acclaim for themselves in the past 10 years.
Most internet service providers expand their horizons by also offering other services like website hosting, designing, security solutions, and computer repairs. No known address was mentioned or found for the headquarters of iSpeed. Let us now review one of the iSpeeds popular internet plans for residential usage to see how they fare against the competition.
iSpeed very boldly claims that unlimited internet plans are the only way to go in this age of technology where the need for information and entertainment is just so high. All of the plans iSpeed offers are at unlimited usage caps and the first month of service is free.
The starter plan from iSpeed comes with a modest download of 4 to 5 Mbps with an upload of 0.5 Mbps costing $44.95.per month in a two-year contract or $54.95 in a month to month basis.
The mid-tier home internet plan that iSpeed offers, called the Emerald Service boast download speeds between 20 to 25 Mbps and upload speeds of 4 to 5 Mbps. They stated these speeds are burst speeds, meaning that anywhere between 18 to 25 Mbps would not be happening on a regular basis. As mentioned previously, this plan is offered at an unlimited usage cap, in available zones and has a price tag of $49.95 per month in a two-year term contract.
One of the fastest plan iSpeed offers is the Pearl Service. With a download speed of 150 Mbps and upload speeds between 12 to 15 Mbps. With a price tag of $89.95 a month, similarly in a two-year term contract.
The top download and upload plan iSpeed has is the Slate Service. With downloads speeds reaching 250-300 Mbps and Uploads reaching 30-50 Mbps. At $109.95 per month with a 2-year contract.
Furthermore, we are of the opinion that providing customers with options is the better route to take. Offering a capped plan with a much lower cost would provide customers with an option that doesn’t include them having to pay substantial amounts of money for an unlimited plan.
The sticking point is that plans are offered on a contractual basis. If a customer chooses the month to month form, they would be paying $10 more per month! The customer can't choose the length of this contract as these are planned as two-year. The only upside to this plan, however, would be that the wireless modem is included.
Too many internet service providers engage in the habit of offering unlimited plans for substantial prices. iSpeed takes it one step further by enticing customers to enter into an agreement by offering one month of free services. Internet service providers who offer capped plans at lower costs without contracts are much more likely to get a larger number of the clientele as opposed to those who don’t.
