Review from Canadianisp.casigned up and purchased their router. My problem is the router_s range. The service as an ISP is fine ( less than a week of use to date )but their router is far less than expected. A wireless router that has a useful range of 20 - 30 feet seems very short. In taking to their support department and their sales department, the only solution that they offered was to purchase a range extender from a third party. No ability to return the router so that a more powerfull router could be purchased.

Rutexnet is a young gun in the world of telecommunications having been brought into existence in 2011. With their seven years of experience, they have managed to spread their roots across Quebec and Ontario, offering a variety of different internet plans based on fiber optics, cable, and DSL. Rutexnet, however, doesn’t offer any other service besides internet solutions such as VoIP services or television plans.
The headquarters of Rutexnet can be found at 1900 Clark Blvd, Unit 5, Brampton, Ontario, L6T0E9. Let us proceed now with review Rutexnet’s flagship internet plans for Home use!
Rutexnet offers a residential legacy DSL plan that comes with download speeds of up to 6 Mbps and upload speeds of up to 800 kbps. This plan comes with an unlimited bandwidth usage which requires a dry loop connection under certain circumstances (for example no Bell landline in the home). The plan is priced at a total of $34.99 per month. The price of this plan is not too overpriced but it certainly can be worked upon. Worldline offers an unlimited bandwidth plan that comes with the same download speed of 6 Mbps for a paltry $29.95 per month. The seven dollar difference may not seem like much but over time it can add up to a large amount. We did, however, learn that Rutexnet offers a truly unlimited plan considering there are no limitations set in the terms and conditions page on how much the actual usage cap is.
The additional fees that Rutexnet implements are quite promising to see. First and foremost they do not charge at all for installation or activation fees. Furthermore, they charge a fee of only an additional 7 dollars per month for the dry loop. Usually, we found providers charging anywhere between ten to fifteen dollars per month for the dry loop. The dry loop, however, does have an installation fee of $19.95 which isn’t too bad at all. With this connection, you also get the basic features that you can acquire with mostly any other internet service provider as well.
In all fairness Rutexnet doesn’t have a lot of extra work – they offer a competitive pricing scheme which can be reduced a bit but that’s about it. Everything else they are offering with this plan is spot on. Many providers never dream of offering an unlimited internet connection for anything less than $40.00 per month, but Rutexnet makes sure to keep customer growth in mind when offering their services.
The other Fibe Home Internet packages for Ontario & Quebec Rutexnet offers are:
- Legacy 6 - 6 Mbps Down / 0.8 Mbps Up - Unlimited @ $35 per month

If you have an active cable connection then you can save transfer fee. The installation fee in all cases is $20. You can also 'save' if buying a modem from Rutexnet, that will grant a discount of $30 towards the installation.
All that said, GoneVoIP finds RutexNet Home Internet plans very palatable; more so the Cable Internet options than any of the Fibe plans.
