CIK supports 2017 Montreal's International Dragon Boat Festival

After having a wonderful celebration of Canada's 150th anniversary and the 375th anniversary of the city of Montreal, the annual Montreal Dragon boat festival was held on July 8-9 at the Montreal Olympic Water Sports Centre. The event was unprecedented and attracted more visitors and dragon boat teams than ever before, boasting 152 dragon boat teams from North America and other countries over the world. Before the events started, the Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau congratulated the cultural event through video and wished the teams at the event and the festival great success!
 


This year's event consisted of a 500m free race, a 500m mixed race and 1000m free tournament. Although several tournaments had been won in previous years by the favourites, this did not prevent all the other teams from fighting trying to go for gold and show their fighting spirit. The two-day festival not only attracted a large number of Chinese Canadians to enjoy and cheer on the teams but many different Canadians from various backgrounds and cultures came to enjoy and cheer on the teams wholeheartedly.

CIK Telecom has always been supporting the Chinese community in Canada with the mission to promote and create a responsible, cultural open-minded and welcoming community .Through the active establishment of charitable funds, the community organises a welfare of activities that promotes energy conservation and environmental protection and awareness. Furthermore, CIK is there to contribute to the community by promoting cultural diversity and multiculturalism through physical activity and events.

The activities of CIK at the event were providing an awe-inspiring cheering squad, that consisted of beautiful young girls, who cheered on all the participating teams. Secondly, CIK staff was at the event to hand out free gifts to visitors. In our modest ways we hope to promote and contribute to the Chinese dragon boat culture and we hope we spread the spirit of the dragon boat sport.

CIK is ranked as one of the Best Gaming ISPs for Canada 2017

Last year, CIK Telecom was selected as one of the Top 10 Fastest ISPs of 2016 in Canada by PC Magazine. At the same time, CIK also came in at 6th in the Best Canadian Gaming ISP with a score of 66.6. The result is based on the connection like latency and jitter instead of download and upload speeds.



A low latency connection do not always equate to high speeds. Recently, PC Magazine notes where all of these high-quality connection ISPs fall when it comes to speed. In term of speeds, CIK's speed index is higher than Fibernetics, Teksavvy and Telus on the chart of Best Gaming Canadian ISPs of 2017.

7 Ways to Protect Yourself Online


Internet has become very popular and a large percentage of the entire world’s population is now online. Even without stepping out of your home, you can do almost everything with just a few clicks or swipes of your finger. Internet has made our life so much better and easier…or has it? We can do all the banking and pay our bills online; we can do online shopping without going to the mall; some people can even work from home, or attending a school online through the internet. However, the more time you spend and rely on the internet, meaning the more you expose yourself to the online world, giving hackers more opportunities and eventually put yourself in danger.

To protect yourself online, here are few things you can do:
     1.       A smart and strong password that make no sense
For everything that needs a password, you can create a complex password and make it difficult to guess. Use a random password that has no meaning. Try to have your password that contains capital letters, numbers, special characters, and more than six characters. Avoid using any personal information such as your name, day of birth, or cell phone number in your password. If possible, try not to use the same password for every account you have. And most importantly, change your password once in a while.

     2.       Protect your personal information
There are lots of websites and social media that allow you to put your personal information such as date of birth, address, mother’s maiden name, etc. However, sharing your personal information online is similar to sharing it to the public. Unless it is necessary and mandatory, otherwise do not over share information and reveal too much about yourself on the internet. 
Furthermore, be careful about sending any personal information through online communications such as email and instant messaging programs, unless you really know who they are.

     3.       Avoid clicking on pop-up windows
When you browse the web you are sometimes presented with pop-up windows. Clicking and closing on one of these pop-up windows might actually infect your computer with spywares. Don’t ever trust the buttons that labelled “Cancel” or “Close” anywhere in a pop-up window. To safely close a pop-up window, you should close it on the taskbar or Windows Task Manager.

     4.       Check URLs, don’t click on email links or attachments you don’t recognize
You should be careful before clicking on any links and attachment that you don’t recognize. Hackers can harvest usernames and password through those links. Even though the link looks like the one you used to use, make sure to double check, because there are a lot of fake websites that look like the original ones but the URLs are slightly different.

     5.       Secure your wireless connection
Consistently change your network’s name and password (as mentioned above, the password should be strong and complex). Try not to provide personal information while using the public Wi-Fi network.  

     6.       Install security/ anti-virus software
An updated security/ anti-virus software will give you protection from cyberspace threats such as  adware, identity theft, spam, spyware and virus.

     7.       Monitor children’s online activities
There are lots of information and danger zones online. You can put the computer in a common area so you can easily monitor while they are using the computers. Also, you can install a kid Wi-Fi to control and monitor their online activity.


Protect yourself online. Enjoy the fun and freedom that internet gives you!

Understand Your Internet Usage and Avoid Bill Shock



Why is my broadband usage so high? I have never used this much of data before. Why is my monthly internet bill so expensive? Have you ever asked yourself this kind of questions? Before answering that, you may want to know how much data you are using every day. Someone might have an unlimited data plan, and do not have to worry their data usage at all; some of them may have a limited data usage for their internet plan and have to be very careful of their usage. Otherwise, you will be billed for overage accordingly.  For example, do you know how much data you will be using just to check an email, or watch a HD video on YouTube?  

Below are some examples of data use:
Download a HD Movie (2 hours)
4.2 GB
Download a SD Movie (2 hours)
1 - 1.9 GB
Stream 4k video (1 hour)
7 GB
Stream HD video (1 hour)
2 GB
Stream non-HD video (1 hour)
700 MB
Instagram
720 MB
FaceTime
85MB
Facebook (1 hour)
80 MB
Music (1 album, 10 tracks)
80 – 100 MB
Online Gaming (1 hour)
20-75 MB
One email with attachment
3MB
One email with text only
0,035MB
Note: All data shown are an approximate number. Actual usage may vary.

To determine how much data you need every month, you can track your previous history. Most companies allow you to check your usage by looking at your account details online. There also are lots of programs that can be installed to monitor your usage.

What kind of internet user do you consider yourself to be? As you can see from the chart above, if you are just browsing the web, checking emails and reading news online, you probably do not need a lot of data every month. However, if you stream a lot, especially HD videos, then you probably need to use a lot more data.


In order to avoid data overuse and bill shock, make sure you have the right plan. CIK offers different plans with unbeatable price along with different speeds. Most importantly, all the internet plans are unlimited and you do not have to worry going over the limit at all. You will definitely find a plan that fits you the best with CIK.

Determine an Internet Plan Fits You the Best


Internet has become prevalent in the past decade. Everything needs an internet connection now such as your computer, smart-watch, smart-phone, security system, etc. You probably cannot do many things without the internet, or the majority of your life relies on the use of internet. In additional to that, internet usage tends to increase by a lot every year as the tech marketplace is quickly growing every day.

There are many Internet Service Providers (ISPs) in the market. Choosing the right internet plan is very important, but will be a frustrating process as well. There are a few things you need to considerate, such as the prices, speed, usage and does the ISP you want provides any service in your area.

The most common type of internet service will be broadband, which is an internet connection via DSL, cable, or fiber networks.  Dial-up internet is an internet service that connects users to the internet through a telephone line. However, it has become less common these days.

Pros and Cons for DSL, Cable, and Fiber:

·     DSL (Digital Subscriber Line)
Through DSL internet, you will be using telephone network wires connect to the internet.
Pros:
-          Provide stable and high-speed internet.
DSL is a dedicated line, which means you are the only one that uses the line that runs to your home, you will always get a consistent speed
Cons:
-          Speed might not be the same comparing to other people on the same plan. The speed depends on the distance between you and your internet service provider, the further you are from the provider, the less strength of the internet connection you might have, vice versa.
-          It also requires an active phone line. You have two options, either you have an active service with a telephone provider, or you need to run a dry loop to your home, which cost additional monthly fee.


·        Cable
-          Broadband internet delivered via coaxial television cables
Pros:
-          Usually, cable internet is faster compared to DSL internet
-          Unlike DSL internet, since information travels through coaxial cables, which are heavily shielded, distance is not a huge concern
Cons:
-          Cable is a shared connection, which means you might be sharing the cable internet with your neighbours, and therefore, sometime might experience slower internet speed, especially during peak time.

·        Fiber-optic Internet
-          Connection is carried by modulated light through optic fiber, which are some thin glass wires inside a larger protective cable
Pros:
-          Extremely fast and stable internet connection
Cons:
-          Not widely available
-          Very  costly to implement the fiber system

Furthermore, understanding the broadband data caps is very important. There are so many internet plans in the market, some of them offer unlimited data plans, while some offer plans with limited data caps. You have to know what your bandwidth need is, because you will be charged the overage fee if you go over your limit.



Choosing the right internet plan might be very annoying. If you are still looking for a plan that meets your need, CIK might be a good solution to you. CIK Telecom offers different types of internet plans with unbeatable prices, and you will definitely find a plan that fits you the best.
