How to choose a good internet provider in Canada?

Contrary to what one can sometimes imagine, Internet providers in Canada are not alike; each one offers many offers at various prices and it is not always easy to navigate. How to choose a good internet provider in Canada?

To choose the right supplier with quality services and the best value for money, follow our guide.


You have to analyze your needs before you get started

Choosing your operator well means first of all correctly assessing your needs and uses. Here are some questions to guide you in your choice:

  • What is your internet usage?
  • Do you watch a lot of television?
  • How many people connect to the network simultaneously?
  • Do you often phone abroad?
  • Do you need a business cell phone?

Once you have properly analyzed your needs and wants, go to the next step: what internet offers are available in your area?


Take the line eligibility test

It is useless to subscribe to an internet offer, without knowing the capacities of your house to support certain technologies. This is why we recommend that you take the test. It will allow you to obtain the list of internet offers with the networks available in your home.

To do this, you simply need a landline phone number or your address (street number, street address, postal code and city).

Between ADSL, cable and optical fiber: what to choose to have internet?

Depending on where your house is located, the operator will offer to connect you:

  • ADSL: ADSL (Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line) is the cheapest internet technology on the market. Practical and easy to install, it offers its users a stable internet speed of up to 20 Mbit / s. This connection mode is available from most internet providers in Canada.

 

  • Coaxial cable: this is a very well-known technology that is very popular with the general public. It can reach a theoretical speed of 10 Gbit / s with a Cat6 or Cat7 cable. But the performance of this connection method depends on many factors including eligibility, type of use and cable model.

 

  • Optical fiber: optical fiber allows digital data to be transmitted at very high speed, and over hundreds of kilometers. Throughput can reach up to 200 Mbit / s, almost without loss from some operators.



Compare the internet offers of your suppliers in Canada

The price of the subscription: the price of the subscription is a very important aspect in the choice of your supplier. You should not always trust the prices posted on the market, because they do not always reflect reality. Often there are additional costs which are added to the basic offer. We cite as an example the cost of renting the modem and / or decoder of the television. This amount is generally taken from the first invoice, and reimbursed when the equipment is returned. There are also some charges that can add to your bill. These include installation fees, purchase or rental fees for the CPL kit, termination fees, etc.

The services included in the box offers: to choose a good internet provider, consider comparing the services included in the offers. Here are the important criteria to take into account:

  • TV services included and the number of TV channels.
  • Unlimited destinations from the landline.
  • Additional options.
  • The quality of the equipment made available.



Which Internet formula should we turn to?

Internet alone: this subscription is very successful with Canadian consumers. Its main advantage is the potential lack of commitment. It does not include residential telephony or TV service.

Internet Dual Play: many operators offer “dual-play” subscriptions, with internet and fixed telephony or internet with television. This type of subscription is economical and perfectly meets the needs of households on a tight budget.

The triple play offer: it corresponds to offers with internet, fixed telephony and television.

Quadruple play offers: these packages also include the mobile phone. In this sense, they can be advantageous for those who wish to group their mobile phone with their internet offer.


Online consumer reviews

If you hesitate between two or three local Internet providers, do not hesitate to read the opinions of Internet users on the net. Thus, they are generally more reliable and trustworthy.

Finally, it is always important for the Canadian consumer to be regularly informed of the news of the various operators to make the right choice.

If you have any doubts or questions regarding an internet offer, do not hesitate to ask the opinion of those around you!
