  1. I am loving TekSavvy. Live on my own, spend $28/mo for cable, tax included. Been three years now, and only one bad outage.

  3. Distributel. I have 25mbps cable internet, unlimited bandwidth, and unlike TekSavvy they won't report your personal information for copyright infringement suits (torrenting).

  4. Start Communications. For unlimited bandwidth, it's even cheaper than Teksavvy. And better customer service, zero outages to boot.

  5. Teksavvy was great.
    I've never been reported for torrenting, so I don't know what that's all about.

    1. Second-hand info. My uncle was sent an information letter from TekSavvy, informing him that they were being pressured to release customer info in a copyright infringement case. They were fighting against it, but if a court ordered it, they would be forced to comply.

      Something along those lines...

    2. Wouldn't any ISP have to do that?
      I once got an email from Cogeco about copyright infringement for torrenting office. I just had to click a button saying I had deleted it.

  6. Anyone but Rogers.

  7. I have Rogers at the apartment I'm subletting, they say it's high-speed, but in my opinion, an average of about 1mbps download, and 0.2 mbps upload, does not constitute high speed in this decade...... My parents have Distributel at home, it's great, highly recommend, cheaper than what we pay at the apartment, as well as unlimited usage (300GB for the apartment) and better quality.
