The only up side to this is that my employer pays for the fax and dsl coming into my house. So for free, I guess I can live with it.

Shaw High Speed (supposedly):



The link from Edmonton to Calgray must be slow as here's the speed from Edmonton to Vancouver

Absolutely.

As you can see in this thread, Speedtest is more than capable of handing 25Mbps.
