Default is there an ISP list for high speed in BC

I am not having any problems with Shaw so far but I like to keep an Eye out for cheaper prices so I am wondering if there is a List of the ISPs in British Columbia . I know of Two in the Fraser Valley which are of course Shaw and Telus but is there others for residential High speed high or no up\download cap?

Shaw
Telus
TekkSavvy

Don't bother with anyone else.

Shaw is your best bet no matter how you look at it.

OK I am necroing this
I am wondering if anyone has used Lightspeed ISP I noticed that they have a special for Cable internet of upto 250.0 Mbps/5.0Mbps for 29.95 with no cap, I know that they probably will have extra fees but I am thinking that this still is a decent deal compaired to paying 86.00 for shaws internet or is it?

Lightspeed is like any other 3rd party vendor.

They re-sell the service and probably off the same backbone as Shaw.

I'm not sure where you see 250mbit/5 for 30, but all they have on their website is 100/5 for $130.
