You could have warned us about their ugly looking website....
WTF cares about the colours ?!Here are some IMPORTANT details (Cogeco-Land) :
Unlimited Monthly Usage thru CIK will cost us $10 more per month than START charges with a specified cap, on any Speed ranges which they both offer. - This means NO UBB !
CIK is offering a 30Mb and a 50Mb TPIA plan thru a Cogeco feed, and seems to be the first Indie ISP to do so.
Like Acanac, CIK has chosen to ONLY offer 'Unlimited' plans, and none with specified caps. - Well, I guess it saves them from potential embarrassment over faulty usage meters !
Also, as often seems to be the case with Acanac, it looks like the quoted prices are a 'Promo', and will rise after the 1st 12 months, but CIK does not seem to state up front what the prices will be AFTER that, where Acanac usually does.
Like START, CIK does not seem to have had success in bringing us a 20/1.5 plan thru GOUGEco. - The CRTC will likely have to get involved to clean THAT up (CRTC Speed-Matching decision being disobeyed by incumbent
), as I am not getting as good value for my money as I first expected with START (and as they had advertised in good faith), though I am quite pleased with everything ELSE about my resultant START 16/1 service, especially compared to being with GOUGEco directly, and both are a solid reliable feed with minimal local 'hood node congestion so far, but only IF you use a D3 modem, IME.
Availability of Cogeco-approved D3 modems seems to be up in the air with CIK, and I am not sure whether they only wish to SELL us a modem, or rent them too.--
We have only 2 things about which to worry :
(1) That things may never get back to normal
(2) That they already HAVE !
