Very poor technical supportHello,
I called Xinflix Media on November 14th 2018 indicating that my internet was not working. I was advised that I would receive a call regarding the repair of this service in the morning. I did not receive one so I called back on November 15th 2018 and I was told to wait for the call. I received an automated call that asked me to call back my provider. When I called back they said that I should wait for another call. I waited and still did not receive a call regarding the repair of my internet service so I called back on November 16th 2018. I went back and forth with this calling everyday (November 14 15 16 17 19). They were closed on the 18th so I could not call then. But I was told at every call that my ticket was in process and that I would have to wait. I work from home and am losing on that end. Finally, I received a call last night
noting that the person wanted to ... s my internet (November 19th 2018) and I advised that I was not home at this moment and to call tomorrow morning. I did not receive this call in the morning and my wife stayed home from work to receive this call. We waited until 2:00PM and I called back Xinflix and was told to wait for a call. This is very unacceptable as I am telling them that I am waiting but am not able to connect with anyone. I then called multiple other companies (Distributel and Bell) looking for help as Xinflix noted that they can not do anything for me. I am still without internet and am just "waiting" for a call.

bad serviceFirst of all, I don't want to give any or even half star to this company's service, BUT Google review seems can't.
Here's my experience with Xinflix internet. I've called couple of times on behalf of my parents and pouched key 1 as instruction saying "press 1 for ENGLISH". Then the teller still keep talking to me in Chinese.
We installed their internet service over 2 weeks ago and never worked. My parents called couple of times in Chinese to request a technician come to fix the problem. They said the request already sent to Bell and the technician will be here soon. So we've been waiting and waiting. No one contacts us to fix the internet. So we called again to follow up, the call center guy just told us if we don't want to wait we can cancel right away with rude attitude.
I called 3 days ago and the girl from their call center confirmed with me that we will get fully refund after the cancellation, also I requested for a cable box pre-paid lable. Then I've told the Bell technician will contact me soon. So i trusted them and gave it a last chance to wait.
Today, My first call: to cancel this service since after all and all, no one contacts us and their customer service is saying MAYBE Bell will call us today or tomorrow, let us wait. I refused to wait and asked to cancel this service. The girl said she will transfer me to their manager, I waited couple of minutes on the phone, the manager finally start talking and kept saying " ... o" sounded like he couldn't hear me, then he hang up after few " ... o". My second call, (I believe they can see my calling number), so they didn't pick up the call anymore. My 3rd call, I can hear his voice should be the manager. He asked me to speak Chinese, I said I can't, then luckily we had an English conversation. He said if I cancel now, I will lost $75 installation fee that Bell charge Xinflix plus $10 to return the modern box.
I told this guy that I've confirmed with them before that I won't get charged with anything since it's never worked from day 1. Then this guy said no, they will charge me $75+$10, will only refund the rest. I kept saying it can't be and I asked to cancel since their service center people attitude is so bad that we're afraid to ask any technician supports after. The manager was saying "if you cancel now, you will loose $75+$10, or you have to wait for another day, you can't wait for another day?" All this conversation has no respect, no customer care, all I got is questioning why I can't wait.
I will share my bad experience to anywhere I can to tell people the truth is, once you pay for Xinflix service, they are nice to you. Once you need them or willing to cancel, you will loose money on it and yet, they are rude to you. NEVER USE XINFLIX!!!

Thank you for your comments. I have reviewed the notes detailing your interactions with Xinflix to determine how we may have let you down. Below are the details of my findings.
Your mom's internet service plan was arranged on Sept. 17, 2018 and we had informed her that the installation would take up to 7 days. She acknowledged that it would take 7 days and asked us to move forward with the installation. The installation was completed in 5 days on Sat. Sept 22, 2018 at 12pm because we had put in a rush installation for your mom. Your mom called us at 5pm on the same day, Sept. 22, 2018 and spoke to one of our support representatives in regards to a no-sync issue and that the carrier did a bad installation. Your repair ticket was issued right away. The ticket was processed on the next business day on Mon. Sept. 24th by the carrier. However, multiple notes from the carrier state that no one from the household was picking up their calls. There were missed calls on Tues. Sept 25th, Wed. Sept 26th, Thurs. Sept 27th and on Fri. Sept 28th.
The support staff did follow up on your case daily with the carrier. Unfortunately, there was no way of getting in contact with your mom. You finally called us on Friday, Sept 28th at 2pm and gave us a new contact phone number with an area code of 604 and requested cancellation right away. I noticed that the area code is a British Columbia area code but the installation repair was in Montreal, Quebec.
The manager kindly asked if it was possible for you to wait another day since we have a working number from you now. You said no and was very upset. The service was then cancelled and once we received your modem, we returned the deposit. I have tried calling the second 604 number multiple times within the day, every day this week to speak with you in regards to the misunderstanding. Unfortunately, I keep getting a busy tone.
Is there a misunderstanding? The installation is not completed by Xinflix Internet. Only the carrier can complete the installations and repairs. The problem was with the telephone number provided by your mom and with no one answering the calls from the carrier. Please understand that the carrier needs to arrange a day and time with your mom to complete the repair. It is impossible for a carrier to enter your parent's home with no appointment. I believe that there is a misunderstanding on why your internet service was not fixed and I understand that the situation is frustrating, but our staff did try their best to help you professionally. Xinflix's mission is to provide the best customer service. If you wish to give Xinflix another try, we would be more than happy to help you. ~ Xinflix Management

Great InternetI have been using Xinflix Internet for 2 years now. I have never had an issue with their service. The downtime is next to nothing. I am a gamer and reliable internet is a must. I play game league and lags would ruin the game for my team. I play mostly in the evenings and I don't find my internet slowing down. The price is very reasonable. I would definitely recommend my friends to use Xinflix.

The worse service everThe company representative is never available for IT support
The service is constantly down they are closed on holidays and Sundays and closed at 7 pm during the week so if your interent is down ... you just have to wait till the next day to get tech support.
EXTREMELY POOR AND UNRELIABLE SERVICE
DO NOT RECOMMEND THAT YOU CONSIDER THIS COMPANY AN OPTION WHEN LOOKING FOR INTERNET SERVICE. .. ESPECIALLY IF YOU RELY ON THE INTERNET FOR BUSINESS

Tech supportMy internet with xinflix is down since July 1, 2016 at about 7:00pm. Today is July 6, 2016; my internet connection is still down.
5 days without internet these days is beyond my imagination. But unfortunately it happened on me; and xinfilix tech support cannot help me to get out of the misery.
1. xinflix has no 24/7 tech support. They do not work on Sundays and holidays, and only 11 hours for the other days
2. I do not know what exactly the problem is, but xinflix relies on Bell to fix the problem. I call them a few times everyday to check the status. But it's still not fixed after 5 days.
