Navigate the Abundance of Internet Providers
It’s a new year! The time to set goals, define New Year’s resolutions, lose those extra pounds from the holidays—and also to review your financial situation. Are you set up for success and maximum savings? Why not make the jump to unlimited Internet? No download caps, less frustration, and you’ll even save quite a bit of money on your Internet bills each month. Not to mention total peace of mind while you stream music, binge-watch your favourite show, or get lost in the world of online gaming.
Are you ready to get started? Here are a few things for you to think about when looking for new Internet providers:
You’re looking for an Internet package that allows you to download and upload an unlimited amount of data. But what about speed? Your download speed will depend on the package you choose. To determine your ideal package speed, review your surfing habits carefully. How many devices are connected simultaneously, and what are they used for? Streaming? Gaming? Downloading? Do you host webinars or conference calls? Or are you predominately online for just research, social media, and email? Depending on your performance expectations, you can make the best choice for your needs.
What are the technical requirements for getting Internet service in your home? Will your Internet providers need to schedule a service visit, and if so, how soon can they be booked? Beware of hidden fees for installation add-ons, and ask your new service providers how long activation takes.
Read the fine print of each offering. Are providers locking you in for years at a time, with high penalties if you decide to cancel prematurely, or do the businesses offer monthly pay-as-you-go plans for unlimited Internet with no contracts?
How responsive are the Internet providers? Do they offer phone support or just email support? What is their turnaround time like?
Beware of hidden fees, such as download caps, penalties for switching packages, or high termination charges. How transparent are the Internet providers you are thinking of signing up with? Are all costs clearly displayed or are some concealed within the fine print?
So, are you ready to get started? Don’t be afraid to get in contact with the ISPs to answer any additional questions you may have. Don’t let download caps put constraints on your online experience any longer. There has never been a better time to upgrade to unlimited Internet, so make the move today!
