Frequently Asked Questions about Internet Service Providers

Who are the best Alternative Internet Service Provider?

First, we refer to Alternative Internet Service Providers (ISPs) as companies that are not your usual large telecommunication providers, such as Bell, Shaw, Telus, Rogers, etc. These companies either rent cable and fibre infrastructure from the larger companies that own them (Internet resellers) or use alternative technologies such as satellite antenna.

These providers are different from a location to another, but here is a list of the main ones:

  • Ebox
  • Distributel
  • Techsavvy
  • VMedia
  • Bravo
  • Transat Telecom

Check our list of locations on this page to find out who are your local Alternative Service Providers.

How can I save on Internet costs?

The first step into saving on internet and general telecommunication fees is to compare the solutions out there. Click here to see the plans available at your address.

Next, make sure you are not paying for a super powerful gaming internet plan, when in reality you are only using Netflix here and there and browsing the web. There are often very cheap internet plans out there for the occasional user. If you do not know or understand much about internet speed and usage, and do not have a family of four that loves video games, chances are you can live on a 25 Mbit/s Internet plan.

Why is my internet so slow?

There are many factors impacting your internet speed, from the technology you are connected to, all the way to your neighbour’s internet usage. Depending on your internet technology, more people on the network may mean less speed for you.

A quick Google Search for “Check my internet speed” will let you do just that in seconds. If your Internet speed is much lower than what you are paying for, contact your provider to see if they have an explanation.
