Naked ADSL is an add-on product available to all Lightspeed customers regardless of which ADSL service they are subscribed to. Customers taking advantage of Lightspeed’s Naked ADSL option must have a clear line currently not in use for regular telephone services. A monthly usage tariff, and set-up fee, approved by the CRTC and based on your location, is required by every Lightspeed customer enjoying the benefits of Naked ADSL. Lightspeed collects these fees each month with your regular charges. Currently urban areas in BC and Alberta are collected at a rate of $10.00 per month and set-up fee is $15.00. Remote areas of BC and Alberta may be set at a higher rate, check our website or contact Customer Support for the current tariff rate for your location. These rates may change during your period of service with Lightspeed and are not subject to coverage under the price protection plan.
