Be Careful when Cancelling ServiceNot the greatest for internet speed with no resolution after many attempts. Changed internet service as not efficient when working at home. Cancelled service with refund of monthly bill owing. It has been a month and still not received. Was just told by billing it takes "12 weeks" for me to receive and goes through financial agencies versus a cheque sent directly to me. Heads up when cancelling. Don't pay your last full bill. Better to owe than wait 12 weeks for a full month's refund.

Terrific ServiceI have used Worldliness for a few years now and have found it reliable, inexpensive, accommodating and supportive. I transferred from my cell phone to my landline when my cell plan changed. Now I can call long distance from anywhere. And they just keep getting better.

Excellent ValueBeen with Worldline for a few months now and wish I switched sooner. Saw the negative reviews on GoneVOIP and wanted to share my experience...
I'm saving $80/mo versus what I was paying with Rogers, and I haven't had a single hiccup. Support helped me resolve an issue almost instantly.

Worldline is a provider part of Fibernetics group of companies HQ in Cambridge, ON. Worldline was established in 2003 and among the services it provides we can enumerate: Internet, long-distance calling, and Home Phone VOIP. Shall also be noted that Fibernetics owns the "free" calling services of Fongo and Freephoneline. All provide somewhat similar services and features, including Canada calling to most Canadian cities for free.
Wordline.ca is Fibernetics consumer's brand and the mainstream implementation of the very same backbone and services provided by other flanker brands such as Fongo and/or Freephoneline.
There are four plans available:
- Basic at $9.95 per month or $119.40 + taxes per year
- Canada at $14.95 per month or $179.40 + taxes per year
- Canada & the USA at $19.95 per month or $239.40 + taxes per year
- Call the World (50+ countries) at $24.95 per month or $299.40 + taxes per year
With the monthly fee of $19.95 for Canada/US calling you'll expect Wordline to pack more features, but regrettably, in Worldline Home Phone case the feature set is meager, and more so when compared to other providers.
Worldline Home Phone comes with the following features:
- Unlimited Local Calling
- Worldline to Worldline calls are ALWAYS FREE
- Call Display and Caller ID
- Call Waiting
- Call Transfer
- Call Forwarding
- Three-Way Calling
- Voice Mail
- Voice Mail to Email
- Visual Call Waiting
- 611 Exclusive Technical Support Access
When you look at Wordline as an alternative to Bell or Rogers then you'll save some moola. Though as it usually is when talking about VoIP or Digital Home Phone Providers. With that said, is hard to understand why would Wordline charge an "Activation Fee" of $9.95? Worldline's Adapter is reasonably priced at $34.95 but then you get hit with a shipping fee of $10.
The Canada & US plan is one of the most expensive we have seen. Looking closer, you'll see Wordline Canada & USA call is $10 more expensive than VoIP Much home phone plan. Do consider VoIP Much as just one example. If you look further you'll find there are many more providers and even better pricing out there.
The International Long Distance calling rates from Worldline are somewhat good when compared to a traditional telecom operator such as Bell. Though Worldline customers have noted that the voice quality is generally poor, more of a hit and miss.

When will my number be activated,I had registered on June 4th, the service provider Koodos transferred the number on the 7th, got the equipment on the 11th my phone is not activated, I need my phone activated
At one time Worldline offered substantially reduced telephone rates ie From Toronto to Saskatoon for 18 minutes for 34 cents. Is this the same Worldline that was offering this service back in 2015?
Hello, We are not aware of any change of ownership in Wordline. As far as we know it continues to be the same, a brand part of the Fibernetics Group out of London, Ontario. The GoneVoIP Team

How to file a complaint against a Provider
If you feel you have a valid complaint against your telecom provider, you are not alone. According to an article in the Financial Post complaint rates rose dramatically in 2017-2018 by a staggering 57%.
In fact, the Commission for Complaints for Telecom-television Services (CCTS) reported even more startling numbers with a 75% increase in complaints between August 2017 and January 2018.
Most issues revolve around non-disclosure and people finding that their contracts have been inaccurately outlined by provider representatives. GoneVoIP offers an
