JCN Telecom Is A Scam. Another Cable Gator / Go Cable / WestLink

Hello I came across these guys and was wondering If anyone heard of them?
Yet another fishy company that people should be aware of.

It has 'SCAM' written all over it. Their address (according to their website) is:
633 Main St
Moncton NB

However, this address points to a BMO branch:

Haha, best part is that they offer Cable TV...

I think I missed that CRTC decision, where the cable companies were forced to resell or wholesale Cable TV.

LOL.

I'm just glad I'm not falling for It this time around last time I was with them I did have service but It wasn't their own real line It said Shaw Communications on speedtest. It makes me happy to let you guys know before someone thinks twice about signing up with them.

It makes me wonder why such a business Is on Canadian ISP after all It's not a real business or they would have their own lines like teksavvy does.

More like part 5 or 6.

There were some before those two, and then what was that one afterwards ?

Good catch, Cable Guy !

BTW, check the bogus province abbreviations in the pulldown selector of the Internet availability lookup !

And this time, he has DSL too ! (see link on Internet Cable page - no link from main page's menu - that one goes straight to Cable = Poor Web Page Design)

I advised Marc at Canadian ISP to have a closer look at them and recommend they should be pulled from his site.

Anyone taking bets on how long before the "I've been with these guys for 12 years and they're awesome" postings appear?

This would be really interesting to see, considering their claim:

"...JCN Telecom is one of Canada's newest Independent ISP..."

Looks like this time you have to login to facebook or have an account number just to chat with them.

Re: JCN Telecom? Another Cable Gator / Go Cable??

Seen this In google's cache: JCN Telecom is owned by Jason Benson, JCN Telecom is new to Canada it was founded in 2012 however for most of 2012-2013 it remained local until Jan 2014 when Jason Benson expanded the operation Canada wide. you can contact us to verify service in your location. Can't go to that page anymore cause It can't be found goes straight to an homestead Page Not Found.

633 Main Street Moncton contains a number of offices, including the Moncton Executive Centre ... a "rent a virtual office" facility.

This has John Bankes written ALL Over it ... Jason Benson ... J B ... John Bankes ...

So I've taken a look at it - At this moment, I have removed their city listings on CanadianISP for both Ontario and Québec, because they're not offered on their home page. Same deal as it was with Cable Gator: If someone can show me hard proof that this isn't legit, I will absolutely pull it from the site.

The spelling and grammar on the site is atrocious, though

Please, is there enough room to include WestLink in a further edit to the thread title ?

Also, WestLink got more attention here than the other two did.

Thanks.
