I signed up with Carrytel about 6 months ago.
the internet service has been good so for.
However I noticed that since I signed up , I have been getting an unusually high number of robocalls , and 9 out of 10 they are in Chinese !!
I start suspecting that Carrytel (being a company run by Chinese people) may have something to do with this.
Could they have sold to telemarketing compagnies their subscribers' phone numbers?
I am wondering wether it is plausible and if any of you guys have experienced this?
thx
No, it's a coincidence. I get those random Chinese robocalls on numbers unassociated with Carrytel.

Just sharing my experience since switching several months ago:

1)no Chinese robo calls
2) good range on CGN modem ( I’m actually far from it right now). Basement- back yard- front yard
3) In about 6 months, I’ve had 2 or 3 slowdowns that lasted a minute or so.
4) when playing FIFA online, I get this weird slowdown that I’ve never had with another ISP. It’s doesn’t last long, but it is annoying and if it were COD or something, I’m sure it would be more costly.
5)YouTube and other streaming works great. Video calls work great
6) “Casting” online video wirelessly gets glitchy at times, so I end up using an HDMI cable.

All in all, very glad I switched. Hard to beat the price ( with the trade off of online gaming).

My 4th month with Carrytel..got the 3months free plan 75/10. for 30$/30days

we did not use internet for 2.5 wks in Dec.

it was fast when we restarted modem. now is a bit slow only 19mbs instead of 75.

I found if it was on a free m9nth ..speed slow down. but it is free.

will update in another 2 months. has to pay next mknth .then another free month.

oVerall, I am ok with Carrytel.

I've been with them for 9 months so far.
The speeds has been pretty reliable all the time - I haven't noticed any throttling of any kind yet.

There have been a few hiccups that happened over the summer last year -
some minor outages which was probably due to some network upgrades late at night.

Overall, I'm happy to continue with them and would recommend their services to friends or family.

I am nearing 1 year now on the 150 plan and it has been rock solid

I have been with Carrytel for over 3 years now; 2 years on VDSL plus over a year (and counting) on $35 75/10 cable. Like many, my experience has been rock solid, and I expect no less, else I would be with another ISP.

My setup may not be the best, but it is cheap and serves my requirements well:
Modem (free rental from Carrytel): TC7650
Router: pfSense with 4-port Intel 4x Ethernet NIC
DNS resolver: Unbound in forwarding mode
DNS server: Cleanbrowsing
Ads blocker/privacy: pfBlockerNG
pfSense OpenVPN clients: Windscribe (x2), IvacyVPN & FastestVPN
pfSense VPN servers/clients: OpenVPN
Wifi AP: EA-6200, EA-6500 & EA-8500 (all in bridge mode)

thx for the info.

I suspect it is Rogers problem in Ottawa West end. The congestions happened at nite mostly.

Few of neighbors went to Bell lately. Saw Bell vans.
