[ON] Cannet Telecom 100/10 Internet $39.99/month + $30 sign up fee + free modem rental

Got this deal through Cannet so I thought would share it with ya'll

Basically, when you get a rep and ask for the 100/10 Internet they'll tell you that it is $49.99 after their "promo code" and some ridiculous $99 fee for installation.
However, if you mention them that a reseller* (which I cannot speak of) is offering $29 sign up fee, $39.99/month and $5/$7modem (pick your modem, they will match them).

*You don't even need to mention its name because they already know about it, they are just playing dumb. if you really wanted to find out, google it; they will be the first one.

Here are your options on modem (Unfortunately you cannot bring your own modem)

Wireless Modem Cisco DPC3848 $7/month

Hitron CDA3 $5/month (YOU WANT THIS ONE)*

Update just found out in the contract .
They are contract lease to own modem for a $5 or $7 on a 2 year contract term.

Cisco=$168
Hitron=$120

*Chances are you already have a wireless router at home so you don't need another one.

Full disclosure: I am not associated with Cannet in any way.


THEY USED TO THROTTLE YOUR INTERNET

Whether they want to admit or not, they slow down your connection on peak hours.
Speedtest.net tests don't mean anything when you cannot even watch NetFlix!

Wanna find out if you are being throttle? Go to this link https://www.battleforthenet.com/internethealthtest/

Is it worth it? Yes, I'll take cannet over any other ISP but their dishonesty is sad.
Their "Supervisor of Tech Support" assured that there was no throttling but their parent company CikTel does throttle, where does that leave customer?

Cannet employess will keep down voting my post but what gives...



UPDATE 03/21/2017

They seem to have fixed the throttling problem and now they added FREE MODEM RENTAL

UPDATE 26-Feb-2017

Useless and rude Tech support, they are from India and have no idea what they are talking about.
Stay away until after March 2nd, if this continue I'd say go with someone else.

Check speed on fast.com and reports from https://www.google.com/get/videoqualityreport

Fast.com got me 3mb/s

Doesn't look good for Cannet AKA Ciktel they are the same COMPANY


UPDATE 23-Feb-2017

Phoned them up and they claim they are upgrading their network and that March 2nd will be normal speeds. YMMV



UPDATE

They throttle weekends between 7:00-12:00 AM based on my findings.

Downloads for big files decrease significantly and high quality videos are not playable without waiting (kodi movies for example)
Also, steam downloads

Off peak hours I'd get 12-15mb/s downloads

Update 2

It seems that they throttle steam very badly 7-12 am.
Watching Kodi is fine though

Image

UPDATE 3 - More throttling

At the same time

I believe you can check on their website and ask for the same deal.

Most likely ON only

How is Shaw better than this? Best I see is $50/mo for 150/10 for the first year with two year contract. After that second year is $80/mo. Is that what you consider a better deal?

From my point of view. Bandwidth has a diminishing return. Once you go over 50mbit/s you don't really notice a speed increase as much, as most websites won't provide this much bandwidth to you anyway while your basic bandwidth already handle half a dozen HD streams + gaming + voip + surfing with ease. Comparing 100mb to 150mb isn't exactly a 50% improvement anymore. So it really doesn't justifies being 50% more expensive.

Cannet is a CIK reseller correct? I thought CIK had a bad rep for network performance.

Same price as Carrytel's offer.

As I know Carrytel has paused its deal.

$60 month unlimited for 12 months no sign up fees, for a tried and true service.

How is that not better?

12m @ $60 then what... $80? $120? Shaw is stingy when it comes to retention offers.


As far as whether you want to be on CIKtel network in Ontario... I hear a lot more bad stories about them compared to their western network. They throttle videos a lot but you can still get advertised speed for other things during peak hours in the west (as of now).
