NOTES:


The above chart does not include the price of dry lines, the service that makes your internet work in the absence of an active landline telephone service.

Dry line installation is $19.95 + HST and $7.00 + HST per month. Community Access Fund members pay no dry line installation and $5.00 + HST per month.

For new DSL members or for existing members who are moving or changing their speed, there is a line installation cost. For NCF's 25th anniversary we are currently charging only $25.00 + HST for line installation. Usually it is $49.95 + HST.

The speed is reflected as the download speed/upload speed.

50/10 means the line delivers a download speed up to 50mbps, with an upload speed of 10mbps. This is enough for multiple people using multiple devices and multiple simultaneous online video streams.

NCF offers our high-speed internet available through DSL (digital subscriber line) technology, meaning it utilizes the phone lines.

Legacy service is delivered entirely through the original copper wiring.

FTTN (Fibre to the Node) service is delivered by fibre-optic cables to a node in your neighbourhood and then runs on copper from the node to your house. That's why it can offer higher speeds.

ADSL (Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line) refers to line speeds with an upload speed up to 1mbps. ie. 6/0.8mbps, 7/1mbps, 10/1mbps, 15/1mbps

This also determines the kind of modem you will need for your service. ADSL lines can use either an ADSL modem or a VDSL modem.

VDSL (Very-high-bitrate Digital Subscriber Line) refers to line speeds with an upload speed higher than 1mbps ie. 10/7mbps, 15/10mbps, 25/10mbps, 50/10mbps.

For ADSL modems NCF currently offers the TP-Link 8816 and 8961.

For ADSL/VDSL modems NCF currently offers the Smart-RG 505n.
