Northwestel Provides Terrible Internet Value

Northwestel ADSL High Speed VS Generic Dialup Service

Canadian Internet Service Provider (ISP) Northwestel provides some of the most expensive Internet services in Canada. In fact there service value is still comparable to the old Dialup 56K connection.

Here I demonstrate the value of a generic Dialup 56K service with Northwestel’s ADSL High Speed service.

Although the old Dialup 56K connection is much slower than ADSL, Dialup wins in more value for its lower cost, greater hours of usage and greater data transferable per month.

The ADSL High Speed is a lot faster yes, but greatly fails to its lack of usage. As you can see the ADSL has less data that can be transferred and a very small percentage of the maximum data transferable at one percent.

Northwestel has demonstrated with there service plans that overage fees are of there best interest and not value.
