Xplornet has got to be the stupidest company I have ever dealt with and even with my speeds getting back to good they owe me and all the other customers out here huge apologies I cant wait to move back into the city and deal with Shaw cable again, wow who would have thought the idea of dealing with Shaw's billing problems and poor installers would be a plus hey?? anyways have a great day everyone and to those that haven't yet received their new 2.4 antennas, keep on fighting one day you too will be on internet thats a fast as what they told you when they took all your hard earned money to install it!
  2. Well Well, today I am receiving a new 2.4 ghz antenna due to the fact that we have new towers out here and someone at xplornet forgot to inform me that i was qualified for an upgrade, also I got the whole story from the installer that is coming to switch out my antenna, it seems xplornet sold out on their bandwidth and are now using some extra from Telus instead of Shaw (BigpipeInc.) That is the reason everyone is experiencing a slow down out on the Alix tower, Also our new burst speed is only going to be able to reach about 1.2 mbps until they get this situation worked out with the bandwidth, but at least I now have the real reason and am once again an informed customer, although I will be on the phone with xplornet later today to fight for having to pay for full speed when they are unable to provide anything near that level.
  3. Well Well, No call back from level 3 yet!!!!, I'm getting seriously disappointed with the lack of service after spending all this money with the company, getting to the point of actually thinking about just shutting off xplornet and going to dial up waiting with fingers crossed that Telus comes thru with the DSL, seriously I can think of a lot of ways to spend the $65 a month I will save by having dial up, sure I'll miss being able to download mp3's, and working on my website will take hours rather than minutes, simple things like checking my bank balance will take 10 times longer, The thought of it brings a tear to my eye, but I cannot continue to support such a poor company, unless Xplornet calls me and fixes the problem properly and for good this time IE: my speeds stay above 1.2 MB, for at least 1 month I'm afraid I will have to pull the plug and give them back their $10 a month antenna and bite the bullet on the $600 install, seriously guys I'm all out of energy trying to fight with this crappy connection.

  10. Im on Xpress package in Alberta and when my connection actually works, about 1/3 of the time I need it too!! I am usually around 1200 down and 450 up which isnt bad I guess but it sucks when I am paying for 3000 down and 600 up.
