You’ve heard it all before haven’t you?
And how the legions of presumably angry citizens of this country – from coast-to-coast find themselves manipulated like sad, rudderless lemmings, ushering in a new generation of exploitable consumer livestock for a duopolistic industry to rabidly devour them – one bill payment at a time.
Haven’t you heard?
Let this be your guide in understanding and appreciating certain immutable facts that will indubitably change the way you look at your current internet service provider and perhaps give Cloudwifi a chance to earn your business.
And when you’re done reading this pseudo-manifesto of reasonably resonant truths, perhaps you’ll have the fortitude to take swift action and turn your internet experience into the genuine utility it was meant to be for yourself and your family – by making it accessible, accountable and affordable in your daily life.
Let’s take a look at some things you may or may not know about the sad and sorry state of internet in Canada:
The Monoliths have received plenty of government subsidization to pour billions of taxpayer dollars into infrastructure and security provisioning guaranteeing massive amounts of profit are made while concurrently price-gouging the country into oblivion. Presumably this is also why the CRTC came into existence; to offer Canadians a utopian notion of consumer rights while protecting the little guy. But the truth is that the almighty Blue and Red are getting away with economic murder and they know it. When you’re getting your value-oriented chapeau handed to you by countries like Israel ($13 per month), Russia ($10 per month) and Sri Lanka ($6 per month) – something has gone clearly and horribly wrong. With Cloudwifi, your average monthly spend will not only be 50-70% lower than the competition, but you’ll get true, unthrottled asymmetrical speeds as advertised and end up owning your own equipment.
This is why it’s essential for Canadians to keep their costs low. It’s hard enough to keep up with hydro, gas, insurance, electricity, mortgage payments, monthly rent, car payments, public transportation fees, rising taxes, and random events involving uninsured medical or dental costs. But if you’re paying $85.00 a month for high-speed internet usage and someone across the street is paying only $25.00 with an independent service provider, why on earth would you incur an extra $720.00 a year? With Cloudwifi, our average price point and monthly/annual commitment will be as progressive as it is competitive.
Yes, that’s right – foundational broadband internet has officially become a “human right” for families across Canada. Inexplicably, Canadians pay some of the highest prices in the industrialized world (about 2-3 times other OECD countries) for home internet and mobile phone data plans – yet those prices continue to go up, even though that should come as no surprise that we’re witnessing an unprecedented surge of need + accessibility across the land. But are you receiving the value you think exists in signing up with a duopoly that’s hellbent on corporate profiteering and ignorant to the concept of actually keeping you happy?
FACT: Only 40% of Canadians have unlimited data on their home internet package, which means 60% have the potential for overage charges
We haven’t just been price-gouged when it comes to data costs over the years, we’ve been monumentally fleeced. The CRTC went as far to create a national bible of consumer rights to address the fact that the Blue and Red have spent the better part of two generations sucking them dry. We’re talking billions of dollars siphoned from unfair cell phone plans and unreasonable home internet bundles with little or no concern for the average family. Only recently has the “industry” switched gears when it comes to offering unlimited plans and disingenuously brought the concept of throttling to new and inexplicable realities by slowing it down to a snail’s pace as you cap out on your so-called data usage freedom. With Cloudwifi, our promise of raw speed, endless data usage and an aggressive price point is guaranteed and designed to help your family get ahead of the curve.
FACT: 94% of Canadian households subscribed to home internet service last year, up 8% from the previous year
So let’s get this straight – more Canadians are using internet than ever, and yet the Blue and Red are repeatedly complaining about their lack of revenue/profit and their capacity to provide quality and reliable service? There is a cruel and indescribable irony to the fact that business is absolutely booming when it comes to customer demand and yet this country finds itself mired at the bottom of all global indexes for consumer value. In fact, we’re not even ranked on most major international measurements for internet value. Should you be surprised? No, not in a country where market competition is nothing but a fairy tale. That’s why Cloudwifi exists: to offer a legitimate and clear alternative where growing demand warrants true options for the consumer.
It’s not enough to find yourself financially hosed by unseen corporations, but now imagine if that same monolith wanted to ignore privacy laws altogether while tracking your cell phone apps, home internet usage and Netflix binging capacity. Corporate hubris is a vile and despicable condition usually caused by a lack of competition and basic human decency – and it’s alive and well in Canada. At Cloudwifi, we work exclusively on a pay-as-you-play basis where the only thing required for you to sign up is to live in an apartment building or condominium that we service, provide us your unit number and method of payment, and away you go. Simple, easy and transparent.
Remember those halcyon days of someone from The Monoliths trying to desperately capture your business with “value” bundles? You know, that reason to spend even more money unnecessarily on half-baked television programming, superfluous cable and ancient satellite signals to keep you preoccupied without noticing how badly Law & Order: SVU has jumped the shark or how much Judge Judy must earn annually to stay relevant in our lives? Cloudwifi is all about foundational internet and making sure you have the right to choose how, what and where you enjoy streaming quality entertainment to suit all your needs.
FACT: Average Canadian home internet speeds of 42.4mbps download and 18.1 mbps upload remain well below the CRTC’s 50mbps target and definition of acceptable broadband standard
It’s spelled out so authoritatively for all Canadians to see, but the fact remains that The Monoliths have failed this country miserably by keeping upload and download speeds well below industry standards while reserving the fastest connectivity for multi-dwelling units (MDUs) with impressive median credit scores and purchasing power. And if you live outside in the rural areas away from the big cosmopolitan cities in every province, you’d best be prepared to take whatever you can find. The Broadband Measurement Project was commissioned exclusively by the CRTC to make certain that true value existed for the amount citizens are being charged for their internet. In that regard, it’s been a colossal and unmitigated failure. Cloudwifi offers true, symmetrical speeds to guarantee download and upload rates with data usage based on what’s promised to commercial, industrial and residential areas.
‘Nuff said. This is beyond cringeworthy and an international disgrace. It’s hard to call your homeland cosmopolitan and progressive when your internet prices are borderline prehistoric. Cloudwifi customers across the province pay an average of 50% less per month for their high-speed requirements and now in many parts of Toronto people are discovering real value that didn’t exist before. Here’s a novel and refreshing idea: maybe it’s time you stopped lining the coffers of a multinational corporation and consider a home-grown independent service provider with innovative technology that actually delivers on their promises?
This damning fact will stick in your craw when you start to realize the lack of competition inside your apartment building and condominium. Simply put, the more competition that exists within your residential community, the lower your cost of internet becomes. There really isn’t any smoke or mirrors to this equation; it’s a simple and elegant fact that’s largely ignored by many property managers, apartment owners and board directors. Isn’t it time you educated them to the value of choice over exclusive marketing agreements? Cloudwifi offers a real alternative to help you leverage your existing Blue and Red plans in ways never experienced before.
It took an 8-month public inquiry to determine that the Blue and Red were treating their customers like grazing sheep put out to pasture. Between intense workplace pressure foisted on their own employees to the lack of support and benefits for their countless contractors, The Monoliths have successfully engineered an ideologically-bound and nihilistic sales and marketing approach based almost entirely on misleading tactics and deliberate obfuscation that Amway, Enron and WeWork would be jointly proud of. What does it say when the two mightiest internet providers in the land have to rely on pure and utter bullshit to deceive the masses? With Cloudwifi, you can skip all the glossy faux marketing and abundance of false promises to get to the heart of what your internet needs are really all about – making it affordable, reliable and worthwhile.
By now, many of you have experienced an inevitable reality when it comes to internet prices: they always go up. And they do so in a surreptitiously vile manner that involves a few dollars increased annually, sometimes quarterly and almost always when you least desire it – until you realize that these hikes are also released at the exact same time. With Cloudwifi, our pricing expectations are astonishingly affordable and realistic, and our word is our bond. No games or shenanigans.
FACT: Canadians are unhappy about their telecom and Internet services and are complaining in record numbers! 57% increase in complaints to the CRTC over the past year, and a 170% increase over 5 years
Naturally, you aren’t thrilled – nor should you be. After years of mediocre customer service, disingenuous sales efforts and dubious commitments towards performance and satisfaction, Canadians are speaking out more than ever at the ludicrous reality around them. And it’s time we all listened and understood the facts when making a seemingly informed decision about something so crucial and necessary to us all.
