not sure if this is better than the last promo but this is now the cheapest 25/10 in Ontario i think.
probably good for those already with contact or already own modems.
to get an idea of that here is the what others are charging.
this comparison is with no promo discounts. unlimited bandwidth and assuming you have a landline and modem pricing and live in Ontario.

CONTACT 28.95 /mo unlimited
acanac $52.95 /mo unlimited
teksavvy $57.99 /mo unlimited
start $60.00 /mo unlimited
velcom $56.95 /mo unlimited
worldline $59.95 /mo unlimited


not really unlimited...
bell $65.95 /mo 125gb
electronicbox $55.95 /mo 1000gb


my current line... VERY HAPPY. and just as the other skeptics pointed out... yes my previous screenshots of my tests are from 2013
which means i have been a very happy customer for almost 3 years. with no problems in regards to speed and service.
thanks for pointing that out guys. this helps a lot of people make a decision now and save some money.

Some of these accounts are used solely for such purpose. Four of them are posing as "long time users and supporters with no affiliation with contact.ca" even when openly questioned by other members.

- That IP address has been in use for such purpose since 2013, posts made with that IP are mostly done during business hours, lots of times just few minutes apart regardless of the account being used.

- While we can't tell for sure whether all these accounts belong to the same person or several office-mates, strong evidence suggests that infamouskid and briancontactisp are the same user.

- As per the forum posting rules, all of the above accounts were "permanently banned" and all threads promoting contact.ca will be locked.

- For contact.net guys, you might want to consider emailing [email protected] to discuss "legitimate" advertising options.

Was with Contact.net couple of months back... Always keep changing ipaddress causing uneven disconnects in middle of work. Also noticed frequent slow speeds in evenings. After reporting these issues to them for quiet sometime, I quit contact.net service.

We're currently on the previous promo where the 28.95 will end after 6 months and will go up to the regular 38.95/month. Any chance we could jump to this?

Nowhere on the site shows as 6months. I guess after 6months it's 38.95/month plus dry loop connection price ie 5-10/month extra. Am I right?

It was the previous promo, we took it about 2 months ago. We had a dry loop installed so we did not pay for it, iirc $28.95/month + $1.49/month for the activation fee split into 24 months + $4.95/month for the SmartRG505 wap rent to own for 24 months.

click the first link you can see when the review was made.
and even current today my speeds have not changed.
hence been with them almost 3 years.
i was once a long devoted teksavvy customer and i still support everything they do and stand for.
they pretty much set the standard for all TPIA providers right now.
however with growth so did their pricing. contact reminds me of the early 2000 days when tek just started.
i am pleased with their service and the support from their staff.
so i stayed like many others on rfd, yelp and dslr.
contact is not a new company from what many ppl are thinking.
if you read my other threads when we did our initial investigation to figure out who they are.
the parent company is AEI internet which have been around since dial up days in the late 80's early 90's.
so its a new brand in a new province and territory with old veteran network staff and management.
contact is pretty much their expansion brand into Ontario as AEI is montreal quebec based.

I signed up with contact.net 2 months ago on their InfamousContact plan ($28.95 for 6 months), it included the $10 dryloop monthly fee, free installation, modem rental costs $3/month.

Right now, I pay $40 a month for 25/10 speeds and it's pretty good, no issues whatsoever. After 6 months, price will jump to $50/month.
