Re: ikTel Networks - Niagara ISP

said by Awol :

I find it hilarious the majority of the guys keeping this thread alive, no longer have Iktel or ever did. I am getting my moneys worth, you guys can spend more $ and have fun and brag about who's usb stick is bigger lol. Nice to know most Iktel users have a life and don't have to sit on a forum all day and night....

And it's because of customers like you that Alan is willing and able to continue to treat his customers like shit and why you will all come crying here every few days/week about how your Internet is down and how Iktel's office phone number and website are down, too. Then those of us who see this thread and realize what a sham of an organization Iktel is will chime in and say that you're all getting ripped off, you'll try to justify how somehow you aren't being ripped off, and then this entire process will repeated itself.

When you kids all grow you'll one day realize that there comes a time where quality is far more important than cost.

There is a market for cheap. The, "I saved 1$ plus tax" crowd. This is the same group of people that take Acanac.

People will defend cheap and continue to buy cheap. Quality, stability, support, consistency and reliability be damned. I saved a dollar.

There is a market for it. There is a big DSLr presence of this crowd. And then there are those who just can afford better. So can't really blame them or the situation.

But people should be made aware of what they are buying. Many are oblivious to it and just look at price as the determining factor.

Two sides to the coin too...

Acanac, for all their faults, at least seems to be somewhat reliable, if not for the fact that when something does go wrong you can't get a hold of anyone to fix it. Most of their issues seem to be provisioning and billing related. Once you're up, it usually stays up.

But Iktel? Whether or not the service works on any day is like getting an answer from a Magic 8 Ball.
