ACN Canada

Has anyone heard of this company? Are they any good? Apparently they provide TV (Bell Satellite), Internet and Phone (VOIP).

Stay away from them. They are a ponzi-scheme company. And their prices suck anyway.

Pretty sure I've seen this company featured on Celebrity Apprentice. The product they made the contestants sell was pretty useless.

ACN has been around for many years, but best as I could determine were/are a 'Pyramid Marketing' outfit.

That alone is worth a 'Caution Light'.

They seem like a Bell reseller. Selling Bell DSL and ExpressVu, might as well get Bell. lol
But this isn't for me, I am sticking with Shaw Direct for TV and Cogeco for internet and phone.

I have friends who are shoulder deep into this scheme now with an extensive network of people connected underneath them for all kinds of services (Internet, home phone, Natural Gas, Hydro, etc). ACN has really changed who these people are. All they want to talk about now is ACN and how I should get in on it with them. Pyramid. There is even a poster on the wall at home of their 'client network', in a shape of a pyramid :facepalm:

I personally wouldn't go near it because it's just plain old sketchy even if the service does work.

ACN is on that list. The most famous of the MLMs, of course, is Amway. Amsoil is an MLM, too.

I had a friend who was pushing ACN and their "exclusive" video phone. I was impressed with the technology until I did some searching and discovered it was something you can buy from pretty much any VoIP dealer or even Amazon.

The kicker is, the video chat feature appears to be a free service that piggybacks onto your existing voice service. So, no need for ACN!
