Through 2019 the GoneVoIP platform received more than half-million visitors. In general, the visits tend to be spread over the more than 560 internet and phone service providers found in the GoneVoIP platform. With this, there are trends and patterns, which the GoneVoIP team of specialists has sorted for you to observe.

This year more than in others, the trend was between Internet Providers and Home Phone Providers. The majority of the searches were related to finding the best internet service provider in Canada. But also there were many more searches for reading or expressing reviews. In many cases venting frustration. This attests to a clear dissatisfaction with the lack of proper Customer Satisfaction by some of Canada Internet providers.

The pattern is indicative of people switching for cheaper or cheap internet providers. In general, though, it doesn’t matter if it is the Internet, Business, or Home Phone; the reign and age of the price hike and long service contracts are challenged by independent providers throughout Canada.

In parenthesis is noted how the position changed compared to last year’s list. If there is nothing noted, then there was no change or if there is an (n) then means is a new entry in the list.
