Guinea pig #4 it is, lol. I am up and running. I did have an issue with my router and was losing my patience but it is not CanNet's fault, they helped me actually to walk me through to clone my Mac address correctly within my TP Link dual band router. During initial set-up, connect the supplied modem directly to your PC or laptop before troubleshooting. Getting a little higher than expected speeds. Guinea pig #1 now has service... To note, they gave me the Technicolor TC4300 for my service, they may use different modems depending on whether it's a Rogers or Cogeco line.

Makes 2 of us! I checked google reviews for complaints but there's complaints for start and other providers as well, it's mixed. The people complaining are usually the ones abusing the unlimited and getting throttled because of it. No one likes to get throttled obviously. If you are gaming or streaming 4k or 1080P you are using a lot of bandwidth, many users do not realize this. Internet just needs to work for me, I trade stocks for a living so having glitches is a no no. Did a test with 4k youtube streaming for 5 minutes, so far so good no buffering like it should be. I'll try the same test tonight during peak hours and report back with any slowdowns.dchabby wrote: ↑Nov 25th, 2016 12:29 pmwell glad i found this thread, saw this service mentioned in the Fido hot deals thread and was hesitant because i knew they were associated with Ciktel.
I went on their chat the other night and they said i could still get their promo pricing so i may give it a shot.
will let you know if i become another guinea pig !

I agree and did ask this when calling in. I asked at what point do you start to throttle on daily usage bandwidth and on monthly usage. By what the csr said if you are using 100+GB per day then you are on the radar. Then the customer is using terabytes per month. This plan seems to be good for midrange unlimited use, if you are an high/extreme user then you will probably be disappointed because they will throttle you. Keeping this in mind we should know what's up. Here is a copy of the terms of service, one nice thing to note is their 10 day trial period.

Just signed up for 120/10 Mbps (with rental modem) for $85/ month tax included with 2 years Price guarantee, + $30 non-refundable activation fee.
Will let you all know how my experience goes with their customer service and quality of internet speed etc.
Hopefully everything works as expected. So far no issues here, good speeds, no complaints. For the most part (unless you do not have the best cable connection) and you do not abuse the unlimited you should have no issues. I know I should not have any problems because Cogeco ran a new high quality low loss cable while I was having issues with them. Very thick cable, been several years and no issues since. The only issue there could be is the service itself. Time will tell but so far so good, that's the way it should be. For $40 a month for 40/10 unlimited hard to beat if you are under the knife and stuck on Cogeco. Those with Rogers lines seem to have more options but still a few posters here trying it out.H3||scr3am wrote: ↑Nov 28th, 2016 5:13 pmGineau Pig #6?
Signed up for 100/10 service during the promotion. Signed up through a reseller, to be setup tomorrow will let you know how it goes. Got the modem already. Sadly unable to wall mount the modem so will need to rearrange my internet distribution area.
