How to choose an internet service provider for your business?

As a business internet user, choosing the right ISP (internet service provider) really saves your money and boosts your business. Here are six points you should take it in consideration before determining hastily.

Before choosing internet service, evaluate your business needs. What will you do on surfing and how much time will you spend connected? Your requirements determine what kind of connection and speed you need. Ensure your potential ISP know if your business includes:

  • Owning a website
  • Having online transactions
  • Engaging social media
  • Sending or sharing large files like videos or images
  • Hosting interactive tools
  • Supporting high traffic
  • Connecting Speed

Connection speed depends on bandwidth, which represents the amount of data that you can transmit in a fixed period of time. This is usually measured in bits per second (bps) and expressed in units of thousands (K) or millions (M).

How you transfer data will determine the type of speed you need. Upload speed refers to how fast you can send data while download refers to the speed at which you can receive data. Although high download speed is usually most important, you would need fast upload capability if you want to transmit large documents or host a website.

Wireless (Wi-Fi) services allow laptops, smartphones, handheld devices access to the internet in your business. The types and frequencies of the transmissions are your wireless requirements. So you need to define wireless requirements, like how many devices will connect to the internet, how many hours will you speed per day. Wireless service is convenient, but you also should consider the security of Wi-Fi use.

Software or add-on services
Lots of ISPs offer their own software or add-on services to allow you to:

  • Business VoIP
  • Web hosting
  • Alarm and monitoring
  • Chat online
  • E-Fax solution

Most services also include security software to filter spam, protect against malware, and filter or block out certain content.

Technical support
When you face problems about internet, wireless, hardware or something relative, technical support is always the first choice for business users. Ask yourself what technical support will you need, 24/7 online tech support, toll-free phone line, or free charges?

Tech support is a crucial element of ISP success.

Cost and billing options
There are a variety of billing options you can choose for your business. It is wise to investigate the various charges that you may incur. Will you pay a fix rate or depend on usage? There may also be surcharges if you exceed your monthly limit.

At last, if you are still confused, CIK Business is the first choice for any business user.  In order to deliver the best solutions for your business needs, CIK always cooperates with World-class partners, like Bell, Google, Huawei, Rogers and so on.

CIRA's new study on Canadian Internet Speed Across the Country

The CIRA's new study ( Canadian Internet Registration Authority) finds that Canadians internet speeds across the country vary widely.

Based on 126,000 Canadian internet users, who across the country participate by submitting their internet performance tests to the telecommunications company, CIRA summarizes the average download speed is 18.64 Mbps, and 7.26 Mbps upon upload speed.

According to cities, Toronto ranks top with average download speed of 22.33 Mbps, while western cities, including Vancouver, Edmonton and Winnipeg come out in the bottom of the list, with Regina dead last among the twenty-five largest cities.

Whatever the reasons for all the different speeds and claims by service providers, CIRA says that access to fast, reliable and affordable Internet service is “critical” to the country’s economy and also an important social goal. Without good quality Internet connections, applications like voice over IP (VOIP), streaming video and media downloads are compromised.

So if you have a little download troubles, please keep calm and do not piss off your internet service provider. If not, and you really want to kick your ISP,then CIK should be your first choice.

Because CIKTelecom is one of the largest independent Internet Service Providers in Canada. Our network coverage from East Coast to West Coast, cover Ontario, Quebec, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia. We have over 300 employees providing services to over 140,000 customers with 24 x 7 phone, live chat, and email support in 7 languages. We ranked 25th of the Fastest growing company among companies in Canada. In year 2015, we awarded Faster speed ranking number 4th among Internet service providers in Ontario.

Canadians can get Cheaper Cable TV packages than Before.

The CRTC (The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission) stipulated telecoms to make basic cable TV package no more than $25/month. That means customers can get a way to receive cheaper cable TV.

The CRTC's points is to let Canadians obtain basic TV channels(CBC, CTV etc.) with a low price instead of many channels they never watch with additional costs.

Most of Canadian telecoms offer skinny TV packages, including Bell, Rogers and Shaw. The interesting thing is that their price strategies chase CRTC's $25 tightly. 


It will be totally different if you take a look at CIK Telecom's Skinny Basic package. It's only $19.99, and includes around 50 well-known channels. Of course, there are lots of additional add-on channels costing from $7.99 to $19.99 per month.

Except that, the CRTC's next step is to make cable providers have to make every single channel available to customers on a pick-and-play model, starting from 1st of December. I believe Canadian customers may enjoy more affordable price by the end of 2016.
