Rogers lite as of today, will be TS/acanac by march, still debating on which one and I don't have much time left >.<

[threadjack]which one would you guys recommend? I'm planning on leaving rogers altogether for a few "you did WHAT to my account??" type of reasons, but they are still offering a bundle price of 15% discount everything and a 'free' $10 gasoline gift card every month and a half. Acanac looks great on paper and damned cheap but I don't want to go more than 3 hours without internet service, teksavvy is looking rock steady and better then rogers though it's 20 bucks more and has tax, and their customer service sounds so much more reliable. advice please?[/threadjack]

I'm in the same situation here. Using rogers lite and I was previously grandfathered in to have 60GB limit and now they have lowered it to the regular 25GB a month. I'm looking to switch soon to probably Bell or if I can find other decent ones.

Living in an Ontario neighbourhood that ONLY Rogers services (they own the copper here as well, so no DSL). I'm looking for a better company, also by March, as they're reducing the monthly cap from my grandfathered lite account from 60gb to 25gb:(

Very counterproductive as everything becomes net based (voip, movie rentals, streaming youtube, online games, etc, etc)

arghhh I just tried several dsls and it looks like they don't offer in my area. goddamnit. I really wanted TekSavvy as their prizes are insanely good compared to Rogers. (200GB/mo cap, 2Mbits faster and 5 bucks less a month than rogers)
