^^they can still get their internet access through them. I.E. PPPOE login will be to teksavvy backbone, and you'll be routed through their switches, but the actual physical copper is (and probably always will be) owned by bell.

Wiimax 4G. Lets hope someone provides GTA residents with a real broadband solution.

yeah I just got that last week, d/l is slightly faster on torrents, and the cap is at 125gigs a month instead of the 95gigs that I was going over every month on the Extreme package, they also raised the limit for going over your cap, it use to be $25 max, now it's $50 max.

I can't comment on their residential services but on the business side, no throttling, no data caps, 99.9% up time.

We used to load balance over 5 separate connections.
This was the best I.T. move our company has made.
any idea on costs? My company is load balacing on 3 connections. Wondering if this would be a better option.
