Unmetered is a well-known internet service provider in Canada. Their slogan is “Unmetered: The last ISP you’ll ever need”. Whether or not Unmetered lives up to this slogan is yet to be found out. Their headquarters are located at 6360 Kingsway, Burnaby, BC V5E1C5. Unmetered offers a variety of internet plans, television deals and VoIP solutions which makes it one of the few telecommunication providers in Canada to offer the “triple play” to customers. They pride themselves in providing unrivaled customer support; being ready at any given time to listen to a customer’s pleas.
Unmetered offers many DSL plans but the one we will focus on in this review is called the Penguin 6 plan. The Penguin 6 plan offers a download speed of 6 mbps and an upload speed of 1 mbps. This plan is unlimited and costs a total of $44.00 per month. This price is certainly a little more than we had hoped for considering Unmetered’s grand claims.
Customers should generally be aware of their aggregate bandwidth consumption per month. This is important for a number of reasons; firstly a cheaper bandwidth limited plan might save the customer more money, and secondly if they find it to be too high, the customer can always work on cutting down to avoid overage charges. However with this plan a customer would not need to worry about any overage charges.
SkyChoice is another prominent internet service provider which offers a 6 mbps DSL plan with a limit of 150 GBs per month at the economical rate of $24.99 per month. 150 GBs is almost double the average of what the normal home owner consumes per month. In comparison to the price laid out by Unmetered, Skychoice is definitely the way to go.
One of the few positive things we noticed about Unmetered is the relatively low additional rates that they have. For example there is no charge per month for anyone who requires a dry-loop. Furthermore the activation fee is paltry $25.00. Also the fact that they offer their plans on a non-contract basis makes it easier for customers to feel at ease.
Unmetered is certainly a unique internet service provider with its flashy website and bold words; however when everything is said and done the basic plan they have to offer is just not worth the money they are charging. Advertising unlimited plans is a means to gain customers in a world where bandwidth limitations are all the rage.
