100x100 @ 349.95/m
1000x1000 @ 599.95/m

Pricing not official, but those could be the actual numbers.

Montreal Downtown core
Optical fiber to your equipment

We will not elaborate on network infrastructure other than its an actif (not passive epon) network.

Happy Holidays..!

Pricing is excellent, I assume this is not dedicated. Can you elaborate on the offering (IP addresses, coverage, install/construction fees, usage limits if any, is a percentage guaranteed like 100 mbit guaranteed on gigabit rest best effort).

That's pretty darned fantastic pricing if it's to off-net buildings. If it's only to on-net buildings, it only gets really good at the gigabit pricepoint, I think. Look forward to hearing more details.

Awesome price! Lowest I've seen in Montréal for 1gbit unmetered traffic was 1300$/month with Openface.

Didn't they go under? It's been a few years since I've heard that name.

Company still in business, they're on Du Parc north of Sherbrooke where they have a datacenter... www.openface.ca

This would be along the lines of best effort, guaranteed 70% at all times. NO CAPS, static IP, $400 install fee. Again the dollar values are not official yet.

$400 install to off-net buildings? Unless you're signing people up for 15 year contracts, that's insane...

Construction costs are a minimum of a couple grand, and can be 10x that easily...

You gotta pull back the curtain a little further here... There has to be more conditions and/or costs involved.

lol.. I know, that's why I'm asking. If you offer that kind of pricing without the 3-year agreement, that's definitely better than others on the contract lenght side. BTW, you should not be afraid with aggressive pricing like this to offer 1-year terms. People will never ditch your fiber if it's reliable (99.9+%) at that price.

I get your point, but we will obviously be the target of pretty much every other provider out there. They will have no choice but to start to tinker with the idea of getting competitive with our pricing. We are not going to build this network on 1 years agreements, thats fore sure.

Just doing an aerial drop from a pole to a customer building with an existing FOSC costs us around $1200 by the time splicing, etc. is done. If you have to cut in a new FOSC, or you have to trench to the communications conduit, or bore under a road, it just gets worse from there.

If I have to do any major construction to get to a customer, I'll typically assess the situation, and see if it opens up any other opportunities, and might eat some of the costs - but when it comes to building a lateral in to a customer's prem, that's a different story.

Most of my stuff is underground, in a dense urban area... A new lateral off an existing duct passing by a building is typically 15-25 k all in, and 50k isn't unheard of... We won't build unless the customer signs a long enough contract to provide an RoI or covers part of the install charges.

As soon as we get out of the urban core, though, costs start to drop to more reasonable levels...
