Horrible. I asked them to cancel my plan after my contract was up, looked around and decided to stay with them but try a different plan/more expensive plan as they were going to give me a $15 discount. Fine. Fast forward a month they say I have to send my modem back and if I don’t they’ll charge me $100. So I ring them, they say it’s a mistake. Same day I try use my internet, seems that they never cancelled the disconnection, so then I ring them to query it, again a mistake. They’ll need to recconnect me. I then check my billing and see they didn’t apply my discount, the $15. By now I’m well and truely over it. ...read more

Terrible company. Started off ok being reasonably priced and reliable, but over the last few months price has gone up and we are regularly getting Internet drop-outs. The icing on the cake was when they didn't send me the usual monthly invoice, then had the audacity to suspend my service without warning as I hadn't paid (no invoice to pay anyway). After paying the invoice immediately via Internet Banking, I discovered it would take 3 days for my services to be restored. No humans were available when I rang their support line. Looking for a new ISP - Megatel look like a pretty good option. ...read more
Pros
None anymore
Cons
Service can be suspended without warning and the customer support seems to be non-existent, if you want to talk to a human.

Started off really slow at initial sign up and had problems (on their end) with my application and I had to wait a week or two for the modem after I had moved into my new place. Its been almost a year since then and I've only had to call them last week because my internet was dropping off occasionally plus I had a billing query. I communicated via email and the response was fast and the information was sufficient and I am very pleased with the service so far. It's also very helpful to download the app to check speed and billing. ...read more
