Yes will keep members posted. They are mainly in QC and gaining some ground in Ontario. Not much for reviews out there but when it comes to cable internet either it works or it does not from my experience. It's unlimited and I am told they do not throttle. Being I have had steady cable internet for the past 8 years I will know if something is lacking. All providers use the same cogeco line here so as long as the line is good and I get a good modem should have no issues. But we will see.

Yes, it looks like all their plans went up by $10 and activation of $30 is now $99. I am locked in for 2 years price wise with my plan while remaining no contract. You could call in to see if they would honor their special. When I subscribed there was a $10 saving per month, it showed as a discount. Will edit OP

Thanks for the heads up. I looked up the reviews and called up customer service to address this. Many households are trying to use 50-100GB+ per day, in this case they can/will slow your speeds down which it what the majority complains about. It's unlimited but within reason and I fully understand that. Not too many days we use any more than 20GB max so I have no concerns. However if any issue arises i will be sure to let members know. I have had nothing but reliable cable internet through other providers for many years so if all of a sudden I am having issues it can be nothing else but the provider. 3-500GB per month is plenty for me, that's double what I had with start.ca plus a good boost in speed for the same price. If I get what I am expecting then I will have no complaints

Just got my modem in the mail, it's the Technicolor 4300, new sealed. I am sure it is a misprint on their site, call it in. One poster mentioned above he could still get the deal. 60 or 100M (depending on area) $49.99 and $29 activation, I got 40M for $39.99 and $29 activation. I am renting the modem for $2.98 a month extra. No contract and price is locked in for 2 years. Plenty of time for another deal to come around. This is for cable internetAbou85 wrote: ↑Nov 22nd, 2016 10:39 pmWhat is the hardware they provide?
in cable 6 and cable 60 the provide hardware for 99$
but in cable 15 and cable 40 they provide hardware for 199$ !!
So hardware in cable 60 is cheaper than cable 40
note the activation fee is waived if you buy hardware from them
so it is better to buy hardware for 99$ and get the 99$ activation fee waived so you get the modem for 0$ only you pay tax only !!

If you are in a Rogers area yes, I am Cogeco myself. All 3rd party providers use the same line which is why with cable if my service is unreliable with CanNet it won't take too long to find out. Never had an issue with down time or speed with either Cogeco or Start. I will not stay with them if they do not meet my reasonable expectations, as mentioned above there are complaints for CIK and this company is affiliated so when I called in to discuss this (I was having second thoughts) it appears households always streaming HD or online gaming taking advantage of the unlimited will get throttled at some point. Some households use 100-150GB per day and to be honest I don't mind if they throttle their speed so that my speed and use can perform as advertised. I am willing to bet those are the people complaining because they think it's suppose to be full speed unlimited 100% of the time. If you load the servers you should get throttled. They need to make some money too, overuse the bandwidth and it would be difficult for them as a company to make money. And for my reasonable needs it must be reliable. My 2 cents and we will see...
