FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
CONTACT OUR FRIENDLY, LIVE SUPPORT TEAM WITH ANY QUESTIONS!
Is it FREE to transfer from other internet provider?
YES! If you are currently on other internet provider plan within our Cable service area, you can transfer to one of AEBC Cable internet plans with zero installation fee! You would still require a cable modem, but please contact us for full details.
When should I cancel my current internet?
In Canada, you are allowed to cancel your internet service with zero days notice. Do not cancel your current service until your new AEBC internet service has been activated. Our customer service team can assist you through this process. *Please note that if you have signed a contract term, you may be subject to cancellation fees.
How can AEBC offer these internet prices with no contract terms?
Larger ISP’s will sometimes offer a reduced internet price to draw you in, and then raise the rates (sometimes double) after you are comfortable with the new service. AEBC uses a flat rate that provides you with stability and savings over the course of your service term.
Is AEBC internet service available at my address?
If you live in BC or Alberta and currently using DSL or cable internet, then AEBC is almost guaranteed to be available currently for you. If you are unsure about your current internet or would like to check for internet service availability, click here for our online form.
Why am I getting different speeds between my computer and my STB/phone/tablet?
Differences in hardware: If you’re both on a Wi-Fi connection, know that STB, phones and tablets typically have less sophisticated Wi-Fi antennae than larger devices like laptops. This difference may negatively impact your phone’s Wi-Fi speed, especially in areas of high interference on the 2.4 Ghz Wi-fi frequency.
What is the difference between DSL vs cable internet?
To simplify, DSL internet has a dedicated connection to your home and so has less interference and fluctuations in download / upload speed performance during the day. Cable internet on the other hand is a physical connection shared with others in your neighbourhood, and so during busy internet times, you may have greater fluctuations in download / upload speed performance.
Will my current modem work with AEBC service?
All modems must be provisioned uniquely, and depending on where you purchased your modem will depend on its ability to be re-provisioned. Please have your modem make and model ready and contact our customer support department directly.
For the ADSL internet, can we use our own modems?
The modems that our network support are the Ovislink modem for ADSL 15Mb and Zyxel modem for VSDSL. You can use your own modem provided it supports PPPoE connections.

Troubleshooting ADSL - No Connection
- You can’t view websites or receive email on all computers and Wi-Fi devices connected to your modem.
- Your computer/Wi-Fi device may show internet connection status as “Offline”, “No connection” or “Disconnected”.
- AEBC modems (Ovislink, Xyxel) will have a red, orange or flashing ADSL sync light.
- The lights on third-party modems may vary; please check the user manual to learn the meanings of your modem’s status lights.
|Potential cause||Try this:|
|No dial tone, or line noise on your home phone||Always troubleshoot no dial tone or line noise before focusing on any internet issues.|
|Network outage||Check here to see if there’s an outage in your area.|
|Physical setup||Confirm that all your modem cables are in good condition and plugged in securely.|
|Wi-Fi issues||Test your connection on a computer connected to your modem with an Ethernet cable to rule out any Wi-Fi issues.|
|Browsing issues||If your modem has no irregular status lights, try to view a website with a different computer or device. If only one computer/device can’t view a website, that device may have browsing issues.|
|Central splitter required||If you have more than three phones and/or faxes, you may need to contact a licensed electrician to install a central splitter.|
- Turn your modem off, wait one minute and then turn it back on. Once it has finished rebooting, try to view a website on one of your connected computers or Wi-Fi devices. If you can’t view a website, go to the next step.
- Unplug all devices from every phone socket, including your modem, line filters/splitters, telephones, fax machines, CipherTV bar and other connected devices.
- Plug a standard telephone handset (with no filter) into the phone socket. Listen for a dial tone and make sure you can make a call without hearing noise interference. If you don’t have a dial tone or you hear line noise, switch to no dial tone or line noise troubleshooting.
- If you have no phone issues, unplug the telephone handset and instead plug your modem directly into the phone socket (with no filter). This is known as “isolating” your modem, because it is now the only thing plugged in to the phone socket.
- Connect a computer to your modem with an Ethernet cable (recommended) or use one of your connected Wi-Fi devices to try to view a website. If you can, follow the advice below. If you can’t view a website, go to the next step.
- If possible, try using a different phone cable to connect your modem to the phone socket. An old or damaged cable may be preventing a successful connection.
- If possible, try using a different Ethernet cable to connect your computer to the modem.
- If you have more than one phone socket in your home, try plugging your modem directly into the other phone sockets to see if it can get online. If your modem works when it’s plugged into one socket but not another, there may be a problem with the internal wiring between the phone sockets.
- If possible, test a different modem at your property, or test your modem at a different location that has a working internet connection. If another modem can get online at your house, or your modem doesn’t work at both locations, your modem may be faulty. Learn more.
- If you still can’t get online, please call our Support Team on 604-288-1088 for further assistance.
- If your modem gets back online while it’s plugged straight into the phone socket, that means that one of the other pieces of equipment you had plugged in (e.g. filter, phone, fax) was interfering with your home network.
- Start plugging your other equipment back in, piece by piece. Always start with any line filters or splitters that were used to plug phones or faxes into a phone socket.
- Wait a minute or two after each device is plugged back in, and then check to see that your modem is still connected to the internet.
- If your modem suddenly loses its connection, the filter, cable or device you’ve just plugged in is probably faulty or interfering with your connection.
- We recommend replacing a filter, cable or device if it is faulty, or adding a filter to a phone or fax if it didn’t already have one.
More information Why do I need to test a different modem or try my modem somewhere else? Connection problems can be caused by several things, but one of the most common causes is faulty hardware. If your modem can get online at a different location that has a working internet connection, then it’s safe to say that the modem isn’t faulty. What do I do if I suspect my home has internal wiring issues? If your modem works when it’s plugged into one phone socket but not another, you may have internal wiring issues. If you suspect this is the case, please contact a registered electrician. This means that they are properly licensed to work on communications cables.
How to Resolve Limited or No Connectivity Errors on ADSL connection?
- If your computer connects to the network through a broadband router , resetting (powering off and on) the router may resolve the issue. If not using a broadband router, or if resetting your router only temporarily resolves the issue and the error message re-appears later, continue to the following steps.

- If connecting to your network using an Ethernet cable, your cable may have failed. Temporarily replace your network cable with a new one to determine whether this resolves the issue.
- If using a broadband router and DHCP on your network, check your computer’s IP address to verify it is valid and not a private address that starts with 169.254. An invalid address of the form 169.254.x.x signifies your computer’s inability to obtain a usable IP address from your router.
To resolve DHCP configuration problems, proceed to the following steps.
- Reboot your computer, router (if present) and broadband modem together, then re-test your connection.
- If your connection remains non-functional, run the Windows Network Repair utility on your computer.
