New package - Electronicbox
 
Electronicbox just posted their new plans according the last fall ruling of the CRTC.

It looks good, anyone has experience with them ?

I might be interested in their 15/1 with 250Gb cap

Interesting how they only offer the unlimited on a lower speed service. Maybe that's the new model to account for bandwidth hogs if they aren't allowed to enforce caps?

For a pure download point of view, you also have the "speedline" with a unlimited portion each day between 2-5 AM.

I find the 15/250GB package to be a perfect fit for me, so I can get a good speed for multiple user on the web and a "good" cap.

A few things you will have to take into account with EB:

- They charge a hefty installation fee
- There is a requirement for a Docsis modem
- Modem rental is $10 per month with a 1 year contract
- Using your own modem will cost you $20.

The installation fee is 50$ which is comparable with videotron or Bell ...

I would end up buying the modem myself, and only 20$ one-time fee.

I still end up saving 22$/month from what I pay now (I pay too much right now :P).

I was planning to change to Bell (from videotron), but short story.. I can't have access to my roof where the connection is.....


I still need to see if I can get a better deal with Bell if I change all my service to them.

I'm getting crazy deals through Bell right now.

Small Business Internet (300GB / 12 Mbps)
Home Phone + Canadian Long Distance
ExpressVu HD w/ HD PVR + 6 Theme Packs + HD Movie package

Total comes to $112 before tax.

Eliminating the Small Business Internet and replacing it with Fibe 16 (80GB) + an additional 120GB ($15/month) would bring my cost to ~$109.

You should be able to get something close to those prices as well, just have your negotiation skills ready...

Oh shit, not bad!

I currently have my cellphone only with them. I would transfer everything (phone, TV, internet). I guess I'll need to call everyday to annoy them as much as possible haha.

What's the requirment to get the small business internet ?

SKYMTL February 22, 2012 10:01 AM

You need to have a business number registered with the Quebec government.

How much for the Bell business internet SKY ?

Their packages actually look pretty interesting. I think I'll get either the 8Mbps 250GB or the 15Mbps/125 one.
