You should switch from Rogers simply because Rogers are dicks.

I completely agree with this, when teksavvy gets available in the my area (website says it does but i phoned them and they said no..) I'll be switching over.

does TekSavvy work through phone lines?
I don't have home phone service, so does that mean I also have to get that from TekSavvy?

as for Novus, that's only for Vancouver?

Yes, TekSavvy provides DSL services, as well as home phone, however you do not need the home phone to get DSL. They sell a dry loop DSL service, which is slightly more than the regular DSL, and is specifically for those "spare" phone lines.
You could also get two dry loop DSL services and bond them together using MLPPP ($4 a month extra from Teksavvy), giving you what you have now (albeit at a much higher price then the regular dry-loop service since you're paying for two).

I'm happy with my DSL from TekSavvy (would like more speed, but who wouldn't?), and would definitely recommend them.

I just signed up the dry loop DSL with TekSavvy.
but I also saw a lot of other options/features:
Filters $4.99/each
Static IP for only $4/mo
30 2 IPS (/30 subnets) $5/mo.

I don't really know what they do, but I play online shooters, download and watch movies online.
do I need any of those features?

edit: does having a static IP help with online gaming or downloading?
