Overage:

MDS Wireless has been operating in Southern Ontario since its founding year of 2003. With over a decade of experience in the world of telecommunications, MDS Wirless certainly has a very large reputation to live up to. Whether or not they live up to this reputation will be discussed shortly! MDS Wireless offers both hardline connections and wireless connections. Due to the wide abundance of wired connections, we will review the ADSL connection that MDS has to offer so that we can easily compare how they match up to other providers that would ultimately be their competition. The headquarters of MDS Wireless can be found at 6175 Highway 7, Unit 10, Vaughan, Ontario Canada, L4H 0P6.

 

MDS offers a residential starter ADSL plan which comes with download speeds of up to 3 mbps and upload speeds of up to 320 kbps. This plan comes with a usage cap of 10 GBs per month which is paltry in comparison to the average bandwidth consumption of the Canadian homeowner. This plan is priced at a whopping $49.95 per month. The speeds and bandwidth usage which MDS is offering are exponentially lower than the average speeds and bandwidth limit other internet service providers’ offer.

For example Yak offers a 6 mbps plan which comes with upload speeds of up to 1 mbps at an unlimited usage cap for only $29.95 per month! That is a steep 20 dollar difference while attaining double the speed, and an infinite amount of bandwidth allocation. MDS Wireless needs to sit down and have a long and hard thought process over how this plan can be improved; using other internet service providers as an example to better their own would definitely be suggested.

A very disturbing aspect we noticed about MDS Wireless was that besides the pricing for this plan, there is no further mention about additional charges, such as the setup fees, or the monthly dry loop fees, or even the setup fees for the dry loop itself. An even more disturbing fact was that after navigating throughout the entirety of the website, we noticed that not a single page had a link to any terms and conditions page, or fair usage policy!

Internet service providers that do not present key information to the customers usually don’t gain much success. MDS offers a plan which is far too expensive to give any real consideration to, and the fact that many of the charges aren’t even mentioned raises a flag on the type of business that MDS is trying to do.

Slowing With Time

3 years ago our internet worked great. assuming that the more customers they get the slower they're speeds have got. they do not reach the promised 3 MBPS anymore. last few months have reached a maximum of 1.72 MBPS. This is enough to browse the web but not quick enough to stream videos or online gaming. we used to have no problem watching netflix/youtube etc. However since June/July 2016 can no longer stream videos and its only getting worse with time.

NOT IMPRESSED!

What happened to our service?? I'm cancelling our credit card authorization if service isn't resumed by tonight. No phone -temporarily suspended, no web page , no emails. MDS seems to have flown the coup Not nice for clients


Now, when you try to access a web page, you get a contact page from netaccess (WStar). They're offering a 6/1 Mps unlimited bandwidth package, no installation fee, for $90 a month. Think I will try Silo, they have lower priced packages. 6 Mps still isn't very fast internet. Would like Xplornet to expand LTE service to my area.


Looks like creditors have been left holding the bag on MDS. I just filed a lost credit card claim to prevent any of them for billing me for no more service. I have already arranged for a site survey from Silowireless. The only other options were a satelite service or Bell's excessively priced TurboHub.


yeah, our mds internet is down as well. cancelled credit card assuming they are out of business. unfortunately only other option for internet for us is bell turbo hub, 100 gigabytes for 140$ a month. very disappointed
