CIK is ranked as one of the Best Gaming ISPs for Canada 2017

Last year, CIK Telecom was selected as one of the Top 10 Fastest ISPs of 2016 in Canada by PC Magazine. At the same time, CIK also came in at 6th in the Best Canadian Gaming ISP with a score of 66.6. The result is based on the connection like latency and jitter instead of download and upload speeds.
A low latency connection do not always equate to high speeds. Recently, PC Magazine notes where all of these high-quality connection ISPs fall when it comes to speed. In term of speeds, CIK’s speed index is higher than Fibernetics, Teksavvy and Telus on the chart of Best Gaming Canadian ISPs of 2017.

7 Ways to Protect Yourself Online

CIK article banner - 7 Ways to Protect Yourself Online-v1-1-01

Internet has become very popular and a large percentage of the entire world’s population is now online. Even without stepping out of your home, you can do almost everything with just a few clicks or swipes of your finger. Internet has made our life so much better and easier…or has it? We can do all the banking and pay our bills online; we can do online shopping without going to the mall; some people can even work from home, or attending a school online through the internet. However, the more time you spend and rely on the internet, meaning the more you expose yourself to the online world, giving hackers more opportunities and eventually put yourself in danger.

To protect yourself online, here are few things you can do:

  1. A smart and strong password that make no sense

For everything that needs a password, you can create a complex password and make it difficult to guess. Use a random password that has no meaning. Try to have your password that contains capital letters, numbers, special characters, and more than six characters. Avoid using any personal information such as your name, day of birth, or cell phone number in your password. If possible, try not to use the same password for every account you have. And most importantly, change your password once in a while.

  1. Protect your personal information

There are lots of websites and social media that allow you to put your personal information such as date of birth, address, mother’s maiden name, etc. However, sharing your personal information online is similar to sharing it to the public. Unless it is necessary and mandatory, otherwise do not over share information and reveal too much about yourself on the internet.

Furthermore, be careful about sending any personal information through online communications such as email and instant messaging programs, unless you really know who they are.

  1. Avoid clicking on pop-up windows

When you browse the web you are sometimes presented with pop-up windows. Clicking and closing on one of these pop-up windows might actually infect your computer with spywares. Don’t ever trust the buttons that labelled “Cancel” or “Close” anywhere in a pop-up window. To safely close a pop-up window, you should close it on the taskbar or Windows Task Manager.

  1. Check URLs, don’t click on email links or attachments you don’t recognize

You should be careful before clicking on any links and attachment that you don’t recognize. Hackers can harvest usernames and password through those links. Even though the link looks like the one you used to use, make sure to double check, because there are a lot of fake websites that look like the original ones but the URLs are slightly different.

  1. Secure your wireless connection

Consistently change your network’s name and password (as mentioned above, the password should be strong and complex). Try not to provide personal information while using the public Wi-Fi network.

  1. Install security/ anti-virus software

An updated security/ anti-virus software will give you protection from cyberspace threats such as  adware, identity theft, spam, spyware and virus.

  1. Monitor children’s online activities

There are lots of information and danger zones online. You can put the computer in a common area so you can easily monitor while they are using the computers. Also, you can install a kid Wi-Fi to control and monitor their online activity.

 

Protect yourself online. Enjoy the fun and freedom that internet gives you!

Understand Your Internet Usage and Avoid Bill Shock

Business Article -banner-v2-1-01

Why is my broadband usage so high? I have never used this much of data before. Why is my monthly internet bill so expensive? Have you ever asked yourself this kind of questions? Before answering that, you may want to know how much data you are using every day. Someone might have an unlimited data plan, and do not have to worry their data usage at all; some of them may have a limited data usage for their internet plan and have to be very careful of their usage. Otherwise, you will be billed for overage accordingly.  For example, do you know how much data you will be using just to check an email, or watch a HD video on YouTube?

Below are some examples of data use:

Download a HD Movie (2 hours) 4.2 GB
Download a SD Movie (2 hours) 1 – 1.9 GB
Stream 4k video (1 hour) 7 GB
Stream HD video (1 hour) 2 GB
Stream non-HD video (1 hour) 700 MB
Instagram 720 MB
FaceTime 85MB
Facebook (1 hour) 80 MB
Music (1 album, 10 tracks) 80 – 100 MB
Online Gaming (1 hour) 20-75 MB
One email with attachment 3MB
One email with text only 0,035MB

Note: All data shown are an approximate number. Actual usage may vary.

To determine how much data you need every month, you can track your previous history. Most companies allow you to check your usage by looking at your account details online. There also are lots of programs that can be installed to monitor your usage.

What kind of internet user do you consider yourself to be? As you can see from the chart above, if you are just browsing the web, checking emails and reading news online, you probably do not need a lot of data every month. However, if you stream a lot, especially HD videos, then you probably need to use a lot more data.

In order to avoid data overuse and bill shock, make sure you have the right plan. CIK offers different plans with unbeatable price along with different speeds. Most importantly, all the internet plans are unlimited and you do not have to worry going over the limit at all. You will definitely find a plan that fits you the best with CIK.
