Overage:

Videotron was founded back in 1964 under the name Télécâble Vidéotron ltée by André Chagnon.  It started off with humble beginnings having a subscriber base of only 66 customers during that time.

Shortly after they began expanding and acquiring numerous companies and businesses, Videotron started their endeavours in the telecommunications world. Today Videotron is a leader in telecommunications having created over thousands of jobs and provided quality VoIP, TV and internet services. Videotron’s headquarters can be found at 612 rue Saint-Jacques Montréal (Québec), H3C 4M8 Canada. 

Videotron offers a variety of fibre internet plans; our focus is to review their newest promotion fibre plan which they call the internet fibre 60. This plan allows users to attain download speeds up to 60 mbps and upload speeds of up to 10 mbps. This plan has a meagre usage limit of only 250GBs. To put this into perspective, you can consistently stream HD Youtube videos for around 15 days before this limit expires and only if you are a user who seldom does online streaming. This plan costs a total of $67.95, but during the promotion, you can get it for $60.95 If you opt into adding another service such as TV into this purchase; you could get another discount but all are time limited to 12-months only! The pricing on this plan is absurdly high without offering much of anything. Heronet offers a 30 mbps Cable connection with unlimited for a paltry $53. Distributel has a similar comparable offer. 

Furthermore, the overage charges that Videotron implements are by far the most expensive of any service provider we have seen thus far. With a mind-boggling $4.50 per GB overage charge, Videotron has broken all records. There are two specific tactics at play here; first off Videotron wants users to opt into purchasing numerous services by reducing the cost of one service; this is a typical upselling tactic used by many companies. You can buy extra usage, say an unlimited add-on for $15 a month. That would make the monthly cost a total of $82.95 which is one of the highest in the market we have seen.

Furthermore, Videotron provides such a little usage cap based on today's standards so that users who do not read the fine print of overage charges will succumb to substantially larger bills then they had anticipated. 

All in all, Videotron is way too expensive to give much consideration too. Their services are not up to par with the money they are asking for. The bandwidth limit is ridiculously low, and there is no unlimited time usage offered either. The monthly bill for someone who opts into this plan can reach up to staggering numbers if they are not aware of the overage charges that Videotron is enforcing!
