That being said, in certain areas (mine is one of them) they throttle upstream, but having your upload speed crap but your dl speed amazing is not a bad compermise compared to rogers or bell everywhere uber throttle. (again its not EVERYWHERE they throttle upload only some areas, they don't throttle dl/downstream period.)
Nice! thats good news! I will probably go with their business package for 120gb down
