  • The problem is not on my side of the modem. I work in IT and Fizz support already asked me if my microwave was close to my modem, so obviously that part of the troubleshooting is done.

    • On one of those lucky occasion, I managed to load a speed test. 0.1Mbps down and my full 20mbps up.

                  • They had the same problem last september and it took a month before the issue was resolved. (Hopefully someone remember what the problem was and it can be fixed quickly...)

Hello mats,

After checking your account I could see that you need to contact our support department, which can be found over the link https://fizz.ca/en/contact-us
In the meantime, I suggest you check the FAQ https://fizz.ca/en/faq/my-modem-connected-cable-my-connec... and when you contact our support department, please provide them a picture of your modem's lights and some speed tests done on Videotron's website.

I apologize for this unpleasant situation.
Cheers!
Nicolae Bogdan
