Youmano

Anyone ever hear of this company, is it a bell Reseller. I emailed them, but yet to have an answer.

YES!!!..... I currently have internet with them, and its 1000 times better than my bell service. I use online banking to pay for my services everymonth. Customer Service has always been great and the price you see on the website is the price you pay!!

Was soo happy to cancel Bell!

I just had a look at Youmano. They were very pleasant to deal with. Couldn't find my address in their system so they promised to call me back.

Remy replied promptly and was very courteous and helpful.

I want to sign with them, I have a good vibe about these folks. Unfortunately in my part of Stoney Creek I would be in the Band F dry-loop zone ($15.20 charge).

I can live with the charge but does anyone know how good or how crappy my service would be in Band F? thx

The band rate doesn't reflect how far you are from the CO, it reflects how popular the city was when they made the band rates. Someone posted about a year ago that they were in Band F in Toronto or somewhere.

I'm thinking of switching to them when my current contract with Videotron is up in June. I'm tired of always worrying about those fucking caps.

You'll pay the ugly PST(TVQ) on DSL if you live in Quebec... that alone removes the price advantage over Teksavvy

also band rate are now based on how many phone numbers are for a certain area the smaller and or populated therefor how many phone numbers are available determine the band rate if lots are avail they can assign a dead number to the dry loop since all dry loops need a number to link to the network it just wont let you call out on that line or recv calls band F G etc all have less #'s available in their area so higher charge to assign what;s left where as bands A and B lots are avail so less cost

Update:

I signed with Youmano and couldn't be happier. I received my modem promptly by UPS, they arranged for the dryloop installer and I was up and running quickly.

They phoned me a few days later to make sure everything was working ok.

Even being semi-rural I'm getting great speeds, about 510KB/s consistently.

Thumbs up for these guys, I highly recommend them.

Phone numbers are assigned to telephone companies in blocks of 10,000. A village of 500 with it's own exchange is assigned the same size block as a small town with 5000 residents.

The rate band you are in is determined not by the number of telephone numbers available, but by the subscriber density of the exchange. This is based on the idea that it costs Bell more to maintain the physical plant in a low density exchange, so the cost per circuit is higher.

I was so impressed with their service that I wrote a review.

They have done everything possible to make me feel like I'm a valued customer --- I have recommended friends who have had the same experience.

I went to them from 3Web and have never looked back. I would highly recommend them.

They even took the time to help my son with port configuration for XBox Live. They have earned my business.

Give them a shot - you won't regret it.

I would suggest that any service provider you go to sign up with you do some homework.

To me I would want to know their company background a bit and ensure they are going to be around tomorrow. Also, customer service and where they are located.

In a technical sense, I would want to ensure they have redundant network facilities (as best as you can find out)..

One red flag with this company (that I've never heard of) would be that they are hosting their website somewhere in the southern USA and only have toll free numbers on their website (no address, no local number etc. etc).

Dunno, they seem on the up and up. Maybe just a mickey-mouse website that they should move over to Canada.

They seems to be a very small outfit working out of Mount Royal, Montreal, reselling videotron. Kind of another Ebox type thing.

I spotted them last summer reading the gazette online in regards to UBB.

See:
»www.montrealgazette.com/technolo···ory.html

»www.montrealgazette.com/technolo···ory.html

and

»www.montrealgazette.com/Readers+···ory.html

Seems he gave a kid free internet for a year after she got nailed on her wireless with videotron and got over a grand in fines.. err I mean B/W charges.

The guy seems to have a heart, so they can't be all that bad. Besides it's videotron services. Not like Ebox had redundancy when they started, and they still may not on their videotron cable reselling side.

They appear to be on the up and up.

Why would you read anything into where they host their website? My business is right around the corner from theirs in Montreal, and my website is hosted by an American company too. Where else can you get a decent price? Certainly not here......

I would expect any ISP to be capable of hosting their own website.

Hey, just a couple of things here to clarify. Videotron have 2 types of services. You could be a reseller (using videotron bandwidth and ips) or a fully-grown TPIA. In order to be a TPIA ,there are prerequisites such as backhaul from Videotron POIs, a large range of IPv4 space and your own transit providers. We are currently one of the fastest growing TPIA with Videotron.

I believe we have some sort of redundancy between Videotron and the Internet. The traffic flow through a redundant core and BGP with 2 transits provider (Peer1 in multihop and Tiscali directly). We are just about to lit a wave on a dedicated fiber for the new core that will have a direct (non multi hop) session with Peer1. This should fix a couple of internal issues we had with static routes.

With the launch of cable in Ontario we are as well beefing up the core to nearly 40 Gbps of packet processing capacity. This is getting serious

Hmmm... I believe more then 3 persons with recent accounts and to sweet reviews in this tread aren't exactly the customers of Youmano. I actually am, for about a month already.

pros

price, connected promptly(I am using my own modem), Live chat with company representative on there web site, service seems stable so far

cons
they was not able to retrieve my credit card information from there own online order form, my UP speed is a bit lower then i used to

Overall happy

Check your line stats. Looks like you're on 5056/512 interleaved. Maybe there's a reason for that or maybe not.

Their internet had good speed, but they have the worst customer service I've ever had. Horrible tech support. This is not on their website or contract agreement, but its something you should know. If you want to cancel the internet, you have to give them 1 months notice or they will bill you with a cancellation fee. Just a heads up.
