Home internet review/opinions?

Hey there,

Just curious for those who have tried out Fido home internet! What are your opinions, experiences and reviews. How does it compare to other providers? Speeds? Consistency.. Etc!

Thanks!

Re: Home internet review/opinions?

Oh man, i had to go through registration just to write this post lol

I was deciding to order the Fido home internet but this was the only review i found.

Since, ive ordered it and decided to share my experience. Hopefully it will be helpful.

 

The modem arrived on time. Set up is super easy. Your grandma can do it with her eyes closed.

 

modem creates 2 wifi networks. One is a 2,4 GH and one is a 5GH. If your device (phone, laptop...) is a bit old, it will only recognize the 2.4GH wifi network since it probably will have a single band network adapter. But you can go to Amazon and for $30 you can buy a usb adapter that will allow your old device to get on the 5GH network.

 

Th speed for my on my laptop (2.4GH) is anywhere between 27mbps to sometime 38mbps (so more than advertised).

 

And on my iphone6 which can use the 5GH, the speed is anywhere between 35-48 MBPS.

 

So speed is good and so far no drops.

 

The only thing i worry about is with more people signiing up, the traffic will slow down their service which is fine since with no contract, you can always hop onto another provider.

 

To sum it up, its a good service and a good price.

 

Plus the modem looks cool lol
