Payments

With Toronto Free‑Net's high-speed Internet services, the first and last month are due in advance, just like rent for an apartment. Payments can be annual or monthly.

With Toronto Free‑Net's dial-up Internet services, you must pay for at least three months at a time.

Taxes

Please add 13% HST to all prices.

Setup and fees:

To receive any service, you must be a member of Toronto Free‑Net. Membership is free of charge. Fill out the online membership form, then show proof that you are who you said in your application (because you are becoming a voting member).

All members start at the Basic access level, which is free of charge. It has no setup fee, no monthly fee, not any kind of fee. You move up from Basic upon paying for any service. If you stop paying, you simply return to Basic.

The dialup setup fee is charged when you upgrade from Basic to any other dialup level. It does not apply if you merely switch, when your next payment is due, between paid dialup levels.

The residential DSL setup fee is charged when you order a new DSL connection. It also applies if you switch between ADSL1, ADSL2+, and BVDSL connections.

Term lengths and discounts:

For dial-up, you must pay for 3 months or more at a time. (Prepaid dial-up price: to get this discounted price, pay one year's worth of fees at a time or arrange for monthly pre-authorized debit.)

For high speed, the first and last month are due in advance, just like rent for an apartment.

Payment methods:

Pre-authorized debit: Monthly payments are debited automatically, directly from your bank account. This method minimizes volunteer effort and overhead expenses, thus maximizing the resources that the freenet brings to the community. You can cancel a pre-authorized debit at any time -- you are not locked in. If, for a particular month, you know that your bank account won't have enough money to cover the payment, please phone the office, at least 2 days before the transaction is due to go through, and we will prevent that transaction from reaching your bank. You can then make that payment by some other method.

Cheque & money order: Send cheques and money orders by postal mail or drop them off at the office. Please make cheques out to "Toronto Free‑Net Inc."

Cash: Bring cash to the office.If the office is closed when you arrive, but you are able to enter the building, you can put your payment in an envelope, and drop it through the office door's mail slot. On the envelope, please write your Free‑Net username, your full name, the access level and number of months for which the payment is intended, and the dollar amount enclosed in the envelope. If your contact information (postal address, phone number, preferred email address) has changed since we last updated your record, please include that too.

Credit card: VISA, MasterCard, American Express, etc, are accepted for DSL payments, for annual dialup payments, and for large donations. Phone the office with your credit card information, or FAX it, or send it by postal mail, or come in person.

Debit card: In person, at the office.
