I had techsavvy in Ottawa and they were pretty good, great customer service, and I had the speeds that they advertised. But again for any P2P applications there is throttling.

I also had Nexicom in Peterborough, great speeds, even faster then advertised, but I think they only provide serive for Central Ontario and the Kawarthas.
Nexicom - Connected. Naturally. Internet, Telephone, Cable TV, Security, Web Design
Sorry I didn't think about that. Yeah its throttled but I run MLPPP so its not throttled.

But as far as options go it is probably the best value for the money. Especially since they support mlppp :)
No teksavvy has no DSLAMs, thats what I'm saying. Actually I work with the Nephew and cousin of the owners of Teksavvy, so I know a great deal about em. Nice company, but unfortunately they're bell resellers with no presence. I reckon that might change soon.

Ok thanks :). I knew its pretty much Bell resold or nothing, I was hoping I might be missing something (I've never been in my co-lo, only one downtown, so I don't know who else has their own dslams).
