Vidéotron in Quebec has announced that it is now offering Voip phone service to a limited number of residents south of Montreal, Quebec. By mid 2005, they plan on offering Voip to all Quebec residents.

The Vidéotron pricing structure was released in the Toronto Sun today. They are not offering all of the features. They are charging $4.00 for the first feature, and $2.00 for every feature thereafter. The base price is $15.98 per month, but this does not offer unlimited long distance. For an additional $4.95 per month, you can get unlimited long distance to Quebec only. Rolling Eyes The base price of $15.98 is for local calling only and your features are on top of that. I was surprised that Vidéotron was not being a little more competitive. They have beat Bell's prices, but they have not beat the prices offered by Vonage or Primus Canada, especially if you do a lot of long distance calling. Bell plans on entering the market sometime later this year. I think Canadians have had their fill of Bell. It will be interesting to see what takes place.

Vonage has been such a great company, and the prices are so good, Vidéotron is definitely going to have a hard time. I think that Vonage needs to advertise more in the Canadian market. So many people in Canada do not know about Vonage or what it is, or how it can save them money. I have talked to several people at work including people on our technical support team and they never heard tell of Vonage. That tells me that more advertising is needed.

If you subscribe to their TV & Internet Service (which I am) the total cost for basic + features + unlimited province wide is 29.90$ . That's pretty good!

For the same price you could replace province unlimited with US/Canada (1000 mnutes).

I must say I am impressed.

PostPosted: Thu Jan 27, 2005 8:45 pm    Post subject: Vidéotron pricing Reply with quote Back to top

I just visited their website and I didn't see that you could pay the same price for Canada/US unlimited calling. What I saw was:

Canada/United States 100-Minute Plan
This plan allows you to make 100 minutes of long distance calls per month throughout Canada and the United States at competitive rates.


100 minutes would be gobbled up in one evening with me! I get calls from friends and family in another province. I rarely get long distance calls from Quebec. I can see how this would be great for some people, but the main benefit of Voip is to get great long distance rates. It's traveling over the internet just like email. We aren't paying for our emails, so why should we pay for our long distance calls if they are using the same medium? I have to say now that I've seen Vidéotron's pricing structure, I'm quite disappointed. I was hoping that they would compete more with Vonage, but they seem to be mimicking Bell quite largely. I guess it gives them room to improve and reduce prices and offer more later on when Bell starts reducing and removing prices.

What about people like me who live in Gatineau and work in Ottawa? 72,000 people live in Gatineau, and most of us work in Ottawa. Not to mention Ottawa has 1 million residents, and the area code in Ottawa is 613 while it is 819 in Gatineau. This means I would be paying long distance charges with Videotron just to call someone 6 km across the river from my house?

All in all, I'm quite disappointed with them, but happy to say that I will be staying with Vonage. Smile

I'm a Vonage customer. Maybe I'wil be a switching customer from Vonage to Videotron.

With Videotron you can reach any canadian 1-800. I can't do that with my Vonage account.

With Videotron you have 911 access and can keep your actual phone number. (I got a cell phone for being able to reach 911)

No click-2-call with Videotron. Nor with Vonage.ca.

Bilingual service at Videotron. American English only service at Vonage.

Voilà pourquoi je pense passer de Vonage à Videotron.
That's why I'm thinking about switching from Vonage to Videotron.

I think you should switch to Videotron seeing as they offer your preferred language and I guess you don't need to call long distance outside of Quebec. That should suit you fine then.

The Videotron solution is hardly Voip. By going with them you're going to lose a lot of power and functionality. Does Videotron have click-to-call? Vonage will soon, but not videotron. Vonage has the great portal, not Videotron. Despite a few dollars cheaper, it is not really better.

My feeling is that it will be within months, not years.

Videotron cannot even do that if they wanted to at this point because they haven't yet purchased a softswitch. They are still using their old SS7 equipment.

I don't know about you, but I find the portal invaluable. For work I'm a talkbroadband customer and, yes, they have click to talk, but their call logs are lacking, they are Windows only (even their webportal uses a windows standard proprietary piece of software).

Right now Vonage Canada is working on the bigger issues like number portability and 911, but the US company is working on general software upgrades. So I'd look for it in the next 4-6 months.

It would be nice to have the click-to-call feature working in Canada.

Videotron is not really cheaper if you do a lot of long distance calling across Canada. They offer a plan for $2.99 per month that gives you 100 minutes across Canada. So far with Vonage, I've used 922 minutes of LD calling across Canada and the US. Videotron would cost me quadruple of what I'm paying with Vonage. If all you dial are local numbers, then yes, it would be cheaper. The purpose of Voip is to have the flexibility to choose your own area code and dial for free wherever you want in your country. Videotron is not offering that. You cannot choose your own area code, nor can you call anywhere in Canada and the US for free unlimited. Videotron is operating more like Bell Canada. Keep in mind that they have not spent billions of dollars stringing individual lines to each and every person's home like Bell did. They have one cable wire that wraps around the city where millions can make phone calls on the one co-axial cable wire. The cost to them is much, much cheaper than it would be for the old fashioned telephone provider, so they should have a lower price. They are charging for the high speed internet connection as well, which is a minimum of $45 per month with taxes.
