Simple plans. I ordered Speedcable 30 (30mbps cable) because it was the best option in my condo, considering I have no landline. Whichever ISP I would have chosen, the dry loop fees would not have been worth it, as my condo is cable-ready. But Videotron's plans are pricey and too limited. I might not be a super-user, but I take around 60-100Gb of bandwidth every month, therefore I enjoy not having to watch my usage with the base 250Gb E-Box offers. The modem I bought them is OK, not the best quality but not a piece of crap neither, a Thomson Docsis 3.0-compliant. Installation of my cable line was done at the hour range I chose and was seemless. As of today, after months of usage, speed is still very good and the service is perfect for a paper-free adept like me. Can't ask for more. The best advertising a company can do is by doing right products at the right price and that's exactly what they do. Very impressed so far.

Forfaits simples. J'ai commandé SpeedCable 30 (câble 30MBps) parce que c'était la meilleure option dans mon condo, d'autant plus que je n'ai pas de téléphone fixe. Donc peu importe le fournisseur, les frais d'une ligne sèche ne valaient pas la peine par rapport au câble. Mais le câble Vidéotron est abusivement cher pour le peu de bande passante. Je ne suis pas un superutilisateur, mais ma maisonnée consomme grosso modo 60@100Go par mois. J'aime ne pas avoir à vérifier ma consommation avec les 250Go que j'ai avec E-Box. Le modem est correct, un Thomson Docsis 3.0, rien de super qualité, rien de douteux non plus. L'installation s'est faite à l'heure que je voulais, sans anicroches. La vitesse est géniale et le service est parfait pour un adepte du sans-papier comme moi. La meilleure publicité qu'une entreprise puisse faire c'est de donner un bon produit au bon prix, et c'est exactement le cas ici. Peut pas en demander plus. Très satisfait.

Hmm....

26 reviews in 24 hours from which the vast majority are from new users?

If I ran this site, I would strip them of their award and purge this company from the database.

They are running a contest for new users asking for reviews on this Site. Not sure if it is against the TOS.

They are offering one month free service to one user for reviews by March 29 from new users. Lots of people moving providers with new rates just released by the government in Canada

I am sure it is against the terms of use. Encouraging good reviews is one thing. Rewarding people for them is another. That breeds dishonesty which greatly reduces the creditability of the reviews on this site and the overall ratings.

As I said, I would purge this company from the database.

Re: Hmm....

I agree, trading money (credits) for reviews is dishonest.

Why not

I don't agree. I do not think they ask for good review. They ask for a review it be good or bad.

It bring new user to dslr and make ebox forum have a larger user base.
