I love Teksavvy. I never wait more than a minute or so if I call and the price is great. The folks over there actually behave as though they want my business and appreciate it. I get 200GB a month calculated over 2 months...so if one month I go over, they just allow it to be taken from the next or previous month so I don't get charged extra. Plus they are against throttling of bandwidth and seemed as upset as me over Bell's practices.

What about us who buy Rogers cable through cia.com? I pay extra $5 a month for 10mbps over regular 7mbps. Could downgrade if it's the same speed.

But you get a 90GB cap instead of 60GB cap.

Acanac is a good choice too for Ontario and Quebec.
They have a few more choices when it comes to bypassing the throttle then just MLPPP like Teksavvy.
Last I heard, Teksavvy is making MLPPP a $4 a month fee.

First year of Acanac is also 18.95 per month and I'm personally using them now, though not as good as Teksavvy with customer service, Acanac is leaps and bounds beyond Teksavvy when it comes to value for the money.

At 39.95 per month (if not using a term discount) , which includes tax.
They provide , Unlimited 5Mbit/800Kbit (like teksavvy, for 39.99 + tax)
Max of $8 for a dry loop fee.
Free online PC (Can be used to tunnel torrents through)
100GB online storage (ftp, http access)
Un-logged tunnel service (for tunneling torrents etc, even web browsers)
Free Static IP address

and they say MLPPP before the month is through. They also have a decent support forums.
