After requesting the router password, Nova refused in writing to provide access, which completely prevents us from setting up the LAN side of the router or configuring it in any way. What's more, they left it in a state with two unsecured wireless access points which allow anyone to connect to the router without a password. This is completely unacceptable! The contract with Nova has been cancelled immediately and I would wholeheartedly recommend that everyone avoids them like the plague. What a total fiasco!

 

 

Wow. That is unbelievable.

LOL! Someone at Nova doesn't know how to configure their ACS.

Hmmm, I'm moving in a month and going from Rural and using wireless to in town with Fibre, so was looking at moving to Nova.  Not sure if I want to now....

I think if the pricing reflected similarly priced CGNAT ISPs where you don't get a real IP address unless it's a static IP.

 

Considering they only have two /21's and one /22: https://bgp.he.net/AS136795#_prefixes then that's a maximum of 5k subscribers so a niche provider in all respects.

 

The problem is providing internet service is a race to the bottom as realistically having true unlimited internet for sub $90 and knowing that you will attract the internet vampires that unless you are large enough to have that sustained by other paying customers it is almost impossible to have a profitable offering.
