Not recommending

I have phone service with Yak, has not been working for last 4 months and they keep taking the money off my account.
When I call them on 1-888 number no one is there to answer. Once the account is setup with payment info, you can only add new payment method and it does not allow you to remove or stop the services.
So, don't sign up with them..

No internet for 4 days in a row

There've been no Internet for 4 days. When I try to reach them over the phone, they put you on hold for at least 45 min, often simply disconnecting after that. When I finally reached them, they try to make me an idiot saying that this is my problem, e.g. bad wiring. Then they make me go through a lengthy process of modem re-initialization, which I've already done many times before calling them. Finally, they admitted there was a "limited" Internet outage in my area and it will be fixed "shortly". It's been two days since then. I've been their customer for several years and this outages happen from time to time, but I not going to tolerate it any longer. Will be looking for another provider.

With lightning-fast speed and a generous bandwidth allowance, Yak Internet saves its customers some serious moola!

Founded in 1998 with a promise of high-quality, low-cost, contract-free service, Yak has served over 1 million Canadians from coast-to-coast.

Yak was a challenger to the oligopoly created by big telecommunication companies since its inception, working around the clock to evolve its product line and expand coverage. The goal was – drive prices down to fair levels, and reduce Canada’s reliance on inflated companies who charge outrageous fees to support fat paycheques.

In 2016, Yak was acquired by Ottawa based Distributel Group. Since then Yak fortunes have dwindled. Yak who once created over 100 new jobs in Canada have now seen layoff rounds. Customer service and experience taken a massive hit and since the acquisition, all Internet Yak customers had been converted to Distributel. Yak Home Internet is no longer available.
