The speed is great. I got 120 and I get 135.

The modem/router is decent. Provides around 500mbit over wifi if youre in the same room. Ample settings for portforwarding etc

Fizz modem : out of the box, the modem has its flaws. The wifi signal is subpar, the dual band channels doesn't really work out all that well. You need to tinker a bit to find the best channel and settings. After that, the modem works fine, very comparable wifi strength and range to Videotron's. The modem is bulky, but very well ventilated so doesn't overheat (make sure you keep it upright for better air flow).

Fizz Internet : I'm getting very reliable speeds, constant 130/20 during peak hours and very low ping. In fact, my 9ms ping is lower than Videotron which is surprising to me. Gaming with it is fine, so is 4k streaming, no bad surprises, no downtime since 2 weeks, everything seems to work flawlessly. Wifi has been very stable.
