Help with Internet provider????
 
Rogers and bell can't provide Internet service to my new address. Bell said their cables don't run that far and Rogers has no cable up here.

I called a satellite Internet provider and they want $60 for 20gb. I use about 120-150gb monthly cause we use Netflix and the kids play online gaming a lot.

Anyone has any suggestions?

Thx.

Where are you?

Have you checked cogeco?

I'm in the northern Vaughan area, klienburg.

(Just got off the phone with cogeco and nothing either. They told me to call Rogers.

Thats really weird. I thought Canada was a developed country. How did you find an internet black whole in the country? lol

I guess you could take a blind stab and call someone like Shaw or something like that although I think they are mostly southern Ontario though.

You'd think, but there are some rural areas that can't even get DSL because the infrastructure needs to be upgraded. Where I live we've only had DSL available since 2004 and that was only because I was calling Bell 4 or 5 times each year bitching that my neighbour half a km up the road has DSL but I can't get it. They always told me that there was some field work that needed to be done to increase the number of connections out my way and that they'd let me know when it's been upgraded. Eventually I was able to get in. Then for the longest time my next door neighbour was pissed because he still couldn't get it lol.

Don't be fooled. Canada is a 3rd world country, dressed up as a first world country.
