[Merged][Other] Acanac Cable: 10/15mbits Internet Service $35.95/$39.95 - ONT/QUE

http://www.acanac.ca/cable.html

Just announced about an hour ago, didn't see anything about the cable deal in the other thread.

They service Toronto, and Milton for sure, not sure about other areas. If you click order now a postal code checker will pop up and tell you if they service your area. I'm calling Cogeco to cancel tomorrow (or price/feature match).

$39.99/month for a 1 year contract, title is a bit misleading

I'd sign up for 10 years if it meant unlimited bandwidth at that price =P Even Acanac's month to month service is cheaper than Cogeco with their ****** 60 gig cap.

But fixed thread title =)

edit: as others have pointed out it's not a contract. It's 12 months paid up front with no cancellation fees. If you cancel say six months in they will refund you your remaining six months minus the discount applied for paying in advance.

It is actually not a contract. There are discounted monthly rates depending on the term. If you pay for a year, but leave after 6 months, then they will charge you the price for a 6 month term and refund the rest. There are no fees for cancelling early. There are no penalties if you want to upgrade your service.

Woot, just did a check and it shows that my location is covered! Been waiting so long for Teksavvy to get service here but they haven't delivered.

It's a long story but basically CRCT ruled that Bell can charge the independent ISP's overage charges or something like that. It basically means that independent ISP's will have to bring their prices in line with Bell (complete with caps) or be charged directly for the overage of their customers ...

bottom line, on DSL no matter who you are with, goodbye bandwidth, hello bell style caps (or overage fees).

The big Cable companies (Rogers, Cogeco, etc) actually has the right to charge overages to independent ISP's too ... but I am guessing that Rogers wants to steal market share from Bell so they are "allowing" Acanac to give unlimited bandwidth (for now).

not sure I understand how they just announced this deal when UBB is about to wreak havoc in a few months...Rogers won't sit idle while Bell has their fun it's just not in their nature to pass up easy money. is there a guarantee you won't be charged overbilling down the road or do they have the right to change TOS.

They (incumbent cable co's) can pull the unlimited out at any time.
*Important Notes

Static IP's for VPN's will be available at the end of November for all Cable High Speed Internet service plans. All Ontario High speed Cable packages come with unlimited bandwidth this however can change without notice.
http://www.acanac.ca/cable.html

Like I said, the incumbent cable companies just want to hurt Bell. You can be rest assured this will hurt Bell market share ... I am guessing there will be a stampede of teksavvy customers rushing to Acanac rather than going to Bell. People HATE Bell right now, even more than before (as if that was possible) thanks to them screwing over every independent ISP in the country (and every single customer as well) through their puppet the CRCT.

This is my take on the situation at least. In Quebec you'll note that Acanac Cable is capped at 40 gig/60gig. I think Videotron decided not to play ball?

Can anyone tells me why the offer in Quebec sucks?

Is it because of videotron?

Why is that?
