Ontarians to get more choice in the phone and high speed internet market

    Yak launches home phone and high speed internet service offering lower
    rates and contract-free service

    TORONTO, Nov. 6 /CNW/ - A new competitor in the home phone service and
high speed internet market launched today, giving Ontarians more choice and
the ability to save as much as 40% per cent on their phone and high speed
internet bills. Yak, which is known nationally for its dial-around long
distance service, formally launched two new services including: Home Phone,
and Yak High Speed Internet. Both services are offered at $34.95 a month and
customers are not required to sign any contracts.
    "Yak's new products are designed to give consumers everything they need
for their home phone and internet service at truly fair prices without having
to lock into restrictive contracts," said Andrew Boone, VP Marketing, Yak
    "Consumers have told us they are tired of phone and internet bills that
creep up with services they don't need or even understand. Our product offers
remarkable value especially compared with the rates offered by other phone and
cable carriers," said Boone. Typical rates from other national phone carriers
offering similar home phone service range from $40 to $60 per month.
Similarly, high-speed internet rates typically range from $40 to $60.
    Yak's new home phone and high-speed Internet services are available in
select areas across Ontario. Consumers should call 1-800-490-7235 to see if
Yak's service is offered where they live as not all areas have the
infrastructure required to support the service.
