Ixica Communications is a Canadian telecommunications provider which was founded in 2007 and is based out of Toronto, Ontario.
Unfortunately, at the time of the writing of this review, the company’s ‘About Us’ page was down and so we have very little basic information on this company.
What we know is that Ixica specializes in SIP Trunking but covers multiple areas beyond that from telecommunications to web development and hosted IP PBX solutions. They state they provide coverage in Canada and USA. They also state their rates are typically 50% of what “you may be paying at the moment”.
In our review of Ixica Communications, we will focus on their Internet packages and see how their product features and pricing compares with GoneVoip’s top Internet providers.
Ixica offers two Internet packages: the Internet 15 and the Internet 25. Both are fiber optic packages.
The Internet 15 offers download speeds of up to 15 MBPS and upload speeds of up to 1 MBPS. This package will cost $50 monthly plus applicable taxes. There are numerous first-month-charges with this package including a modem charge of $95 (to own), an additional shipping of fee of $10, and a general set-up fee of $75. That brings the total first-month cost to a hefty $230.
By purchasing the Internet 15 with an annual payment instead of paying monthly, you get the set-up fee, cost of modem and shipping charges waived, as well as a free phone line.
The Internet 25 jumps up in price to $70 per month plus applicable taxes. As the name suggests, the download speeds are increased to up to 25 MBPS, but disappointingly there is no increase with upload speeds remaining at or up to 1 MBPS.
The Internet 25 has the same cost of the WiFi modem at $95 and the shipping at $10, but the set-up fee increases to $90 from $75. This pushes the first-month cost up to $265.
You can also pay for the Internet 25 annually for $840 and get the set-up fee, cost of modem and shipping charges waived, in addition to a free phone line included in the deal.
There are combo plans with Internet and phone which are basically identical to purchasing the above products on an annual basis, except slightly more expensive monthly cost. But if you pay annually, the combo package and the ‘Internet by itself’ packages come at the same cost.
In our review of Ixica. We think their pricing is quite high. With little information on their coverage areas or general company information in general, it is hard to understand how this company can bill itself as “having rates are typically 50% of what “you may be paying at the moment”.
With the features/specs of the plans, we find little value in going with Ixica. Try looking into Gonevoip’s top companies such as Altima Telecom or Heronet.
