Your rights as an Internet consumer

The Internet Code establishes basic rights for all Internet consumers. Under the Internet Code, customers have the right to:

  • a contract that uses plain language and clearly describes the services you will receive, and includes information on when and why you may be charged extra
  • receive a Critical Information Summary, which explains the key elements of your contract in under two pages
  • refuse a change to the key terms and conditions of your contract, including the services in your contract, the price for those services, and the duration of your contract
  • cancel your contract without the application of early cancellation fees if you do so within a defined trial period. At Xplornet, all of our customers who subscribe to our services on a contract benefit from our 30-day Money-Back Guarantee
  • receive notifications when you reach 75%, 90% and 100% of your data usage limits, along with information on overage charges and data usage monitoring tools

The Code applies to all Internet services provided to individual customers by large facilities-based Internet service providers, in all provinces and territories, whether purchased on a stand-alone basis or as part of a bundle, and whether purchased in person, online, or over the phone. All service providers to which the Code applies must comply with the Code.
