I used to have a TGV 65/5 from Videotron before that and at max ever managed to get 40/3 out of it, and at time it used to be the best you could get around here. Videotron's service was around 20$ more expensive than what I have now with Bell, with only 150gb per month, costing me extras every month.

In Quebec the 2 main ISPs if you want the fastest are pretty much Bell and Videotron, and neither of them are cheap. In my case switching to Bell was a good move for the extra 100gb per month and the constant speeds and balanced network overall.

Now I never tried to sell the fact that I had fiber, that's the last thing I care about. As long as I get what I pay for, im fine with it.

Don't expect to see anything close to 1000mbit in the next 4-5 years around here haha, or if they ever do so, they will put ridiculously low caps like 300gb per month
