Voyageur Internet is an Internet service provider that serves the Southern Manitoba area. The company’s headquarters are located in Winnipeg. Voyageur Internet was founded in 2002 under the name NetSet Solutions, before changing their name to Rainy Day Internet in 2006 and finally to Voyageur Internet.
Voyageur Internet offers four main residential wireless Internet service packages. In our review of Voyageur Internet, we will examine these four plans by price and feature, and compare them to Gonevoip’s top three Internet Service providers to see how they stack up.
The first plan is called the 5-50 Residential Plan and checks in at $49.95 per month. Included in the 5-50, as the name suggests, is a connection speed of up to 5 Mbps and a monthly data usage of 60 GB per month. Next up is 5-100 Residential Plan. The 5 Mbps plan is an additional $5 per month at $54.95; while keeping the same 5 Mbps connection speed but adding an unlimited bandwidth. The third plan is the 10-150 Residential Plan which comes in at $74.99 per month. For an additional $10, this plan offers the increases to an unlimited usage.
Finally, Voyageur offers the 25-480Residential Plan at a steep price of $149.99 per month. If you'd like to have that plan with unlimited usage, then is $50 more per month.
All of the packages come with a one-year mandatory term. Any additional data usage is billed at a rate of $2 per GB used over the monthly allowance. There is also a $275 installation fee for any of the packages chosen. In our review of Voyageur Internet, we are disappointed in their rather drastic price increases from plan-to-plan, which are significant and offer very little in terms of feature upgrades.
From $49.95 at the least inexpensive plan to $129.95 for the most expensive, the increase is limited to an additional 5 Mbps and 125 GB. total This is a considerable increase in price for modest gains in data and even fewer gains in download and upload speeds. If you live in southern Manitoba, then Voyageur is an option worth considering, but only for the middle plan, which at $49.95 per month still is considerably more expensive than Gonevoip’s top three internet service providers – Altima Telecom, Heronet, and Distributel. None of those companies have starter plans, which top $29.95 per month, making them $20 cheaper than Voyageur’s least expensive plan. Furthermore, the installation fee and the mandatory one-year term may be enough to push Voyager Internet out of contention for some. Though if is the only option you come across in your area, then is worth investigating and researching all the discounts Voyageur may be able to provide.
