Value for money:
(ratings above consensus)
I'm using Vmedia 25/1 internet service, no caps, no traffic shaping, and Vmedia's IPTV service. I've used 5 other companies over the past 20 years, and no one has better customer service than Vmedia. I mean no one. Whenever I've had problems, and yes, at the beginning there were quite a few, Vmedia worked damned hard on identifying and fixing it in an extremely timely manner.
My Other Reviews·ooma
To add, their IPTV has a huge selection of channels, some not available to Rogers or Bell, (most premium channels are in HD at no extra cost), and they have an a la carte menu that allows you to pick and choose packages or individual channels.
Their internet is always up. Unless Rogers is doing something locally to the physical cable, Vmedia is always on. I never have an issue with it.
The only draw back. No SMTP. Big deal, I use Gmail instead. Not a deal breaker in my books.
Want value for your money?
Go with Vmedia.
September 2014, and I've been asked to update my review of Vmedia.
I've continued to be a happy customer. Small problems are dealt with quickly and George and crew are the best at what they do. If I have a problem. I call, it gets dealt with and someone from Vmedia actually CALLS and makes sure that it is dealt with. No hassles. No bullsh*t.
I've found some questionable activity over the past year regarding comments and vmedia here at DSL reports. I've found a pattern where you'll see anonymous posters coming here, talking a bunch of unsubstantiated smack and disappearing. They don't post any real details just a bunch of sh*t. So. My advice. Don't get sucked into the negatives. Try vmedia yourself and if you don't like it, you're not locked in. You can always back out and try someone else. My advice to you is make sure you have a good primary ISP (Rogers, Shaw or Bell) that has a reliable network since Vmedia is a TPIA and has to rely on those services to provide you with the best service. I'll update next year.
Till then, stay happy.
