MoJo Posted May 10, 2007 Report Share Posted May 10, 2007 To those that use Rogers and Bell as their ISP in Canada be aware that you are getting screwed in the wallet. Rogers incorporates throttling of all P2P, does web hijacking/ injection and has a 60GB cap. Bell throttles and has a cap set at 100GB a month. They both are increasing the average price of Broadband Internet, while at the same time reducing operational cost to them (limiting traffic on their network, canceling their NewsGroup service, outsourcing their emails to either Yahoo or MSN, etc...). This has been business as usual for these two big companies, walking all over their clients and taking advantage of no competition. Other ISP culprits are Shaw, and Telus which are big in the western Canada region. I've done my share of ranting and raving, now it's time for action ... thats why to those still in the Rogers and Bell trap I tell you about another alternative.Meet TekSavvyWhat TekSavvy is basically a competitive ISP that literally blows the competition out of the water. What they offer cannot be matched by no other. Here is what TekSavvy has to offer:Technology: ADSLSpeed: 5Mbits/800KbitsPrice: $30/month (200GB Cap Premium), $40/month (No Cap Unlimited)Options: $4/month extra for a Static IP, MLPPP and UsenetPremium Monthly Service: You get a 200GB/month cap and your internet runs through Peer1 ip transit network resulting in very low latency ... excellent choice for avid gamers and those with VoIP.Unlimited Monthly Service: A little bit higher latency( 5ms-15ms) as it runs through Cogent but the trade-off is that you get Unlimited data cap ... excellent choice for us downloaders that download quite a bit.The thing that blew me away about TekSavvy is their Customer Service ... when I called I was surprised a human picked up on the other end rather then some automated script. They are very helpful and curteous and believe it or not their employees are allowed to help people over at BroadBandReports.com. Their support and sales office is open 24/7, and even on weekends.Those living in Ontario, Quebec, Alberta, and Vancouver looking for an alternative option check TekSavvy out over at BBR, and ask any question you would like answered by a qualified employee from TekSavvy.BBR ForumsIf TekSavvy is not your cup of tea, these are good alternatives as well:Acanac East CoastDistributel East CoastElectronicBox East CoastExeculink East CoastMNSi East CoastYak East Coast and West Coast Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
