Very unprofessional

We had them at our 1st cottage no issues. We moved cottages 10 doors down. They come to hook us up. 4 hours later tech leaves saying it's not working but it is on there side and would be resolved in a few hours. 2 weeks later still not resolved and giving us the run around. Like I said it's a cottage we are only there on weekends yet they want us to pay for a tech to come on weekends or take a day off work for there mistake in the first place. Highly not recommended

Réseau Picanoc is a Quebec rural wireless-based internet and telephony provider. Picanoc provides services in the Western Quebec region. Providing an alternative for High-Speed access to otherwise remote and isolated rural communities. The service is provided with a Public/Private partnership, the public partners are the MRC of Pontiac and MRC of Vallée de la Gatineau and the CSHBO and Western Quebec school boards, incorporated as Connexion Fibre Picanoc inc. and registered with the CRTC as a non-dominant telecom. The private partner is Xittel, who operates a Wireless network in Trois-Rivières (Québec).

Let us review now Picanoc Home Internet Packages. We find two Internet Plans.

- The Equipped at $44.95 per month coming with:

  • 5 Mbps Download
  • 1 Mbps Upload
  • 30 GB Usage
  • Unlimited Connection Time
  • 4 Email address

- The Tweaked at $ 54.95 per month coming with:

  • 5 Mbps Download
  • 1 Mbps Upload
  • 60 GB Usage
  • Unlimited Time usage
  • 4 email addresses

So there are no real differences other than the usage allowance that is double. Now to that, we have to add the Installation Fee of $199.99 and have to consider both plans are based on 12 months contracts, as it is often the case with rural providers.

With that said, since the overage charge is $2.50 per GB the Tweaked plan is the better option. Costing only $10 more but giving you twice as much usage, at 60 GB.

In all, Gonevoip believes that Picanoc is doing a great job of providing Internet connectivity to their served communities in Quebec. Having said that, will be great to see an unlimited internet usage option and perhaps faster speeds so families living in these communities could for example watch services such as Netflix.
