Sad to hear about that. You should contact Fizz. There is two options for the installation : a VIP one where they install it for you and charge you a fee and a do it yourself installation which is free. Seems like you chose the VIP one.

You should contact Fizz. My profile ---> Contact us. As far as I know, onsite install is never free. Only self install is free.

We are not working for Fizz.We are simple users , just like you.For billing enquiries you should contact Fizz via chat chat bubble or via Facebook.

If Fizz doesn't give you a satisfactory resolution you might want to consider fileing a complaint with https://www.ccts-cprst.ca

A technician came to make sure your cable line supports internet and deliver a modem, but you have to set it up yourself. If the technician set it up for you, they will charge you a fee.

Perhaps charging for non-existant VIP Installations is a way of contributing to Fizz's cash-flow.

I indicated on the Home Internet Installation Request NOT to have VIP Installation.

The installer came over, tested the Hitron Coda 4680 modem/router and I said "great, I'll do the rest."

He said, "No problem, I can do this"

He transferred the usb from my Network Attached Storage System from my old router to the new router - ie., he unplugged it and replugged it. He also plugged my old router into the new Hitron & told me to download the Fizz App.

Surprise, surprise I was charged $30 for VIP Installation. A week later and Fizz has still not removed the charge. Not impressed.

At least I don't have a charge for $33,739,830.00 like somebody else did for roaming.

Quick update from me too : the Videotron technician did plug in the modem for me even though I didn't select the VIP activation. All I had to do was change the wifi password myself. However I didn't get charged for that. The service is in beta so it's normal that there are some bugs for some people. I'm sure if you explain the situation to customer service they will help you with that. And Timothy, Fizz is prepaid so noone got charged roaming fees like that. You can only be charged up to whatever amount you added to your wallet, which is 0$ by default.

Thanks for the excellent info D.B.; I had no idea that Fizz was in Beta phase. No idea.
I did contact customer support about the extraneous VIP Installation charge over a 1 week ago but they have not responded nor removed the charge from my credit card - no wallet invoved.

As per the no roaming fees & wallet.... how did Mobile get involved in this Home Internet discussion?

We all know that Fizz is still in Beta. Anybody that was invited to try the Fizz Home Internet was an early subscriber to the Fizz Mobile Beta. There have been many issues with the Beta, however charging for a service that was never asked for, never delivered and then not reversed is not excused by the fact that they are in Beta.

A Videotron technician delivered the modem. The Home Internet Network is Videotron. The Mobile Network is Videotron just rebranded as Fizz. Are they understaffed? I'm sure they are. Are they slow to respond to issues because they are understaffed? Of course. Are they slow to resolved problems because nobody can actually call them and one has to use Forms to contact them because the Support Chat Bubble is almost never visible. Of course.

when I asked for internet VIP instal they said it was a fee of 20$ but FIZZ took 75$ from my credit card. The Videotron Technician came and did not do anything. He was telling us story about Haiti, his home land. I ended up installing it myself even if he came. I had no problem with paying 20 fee for instal, but 75 seems too much for someone who did nothing. Modem they said was free always. I made a complaint form through my profile and contacted them through Facebook to see what they say
