: Your download/ upload speeds, Price (no bundling), Provider (Test Links In Here)

Warp it varies on the download but up load is always around this rate
you'll have a hard time finding a speed test that can keep up, I hit 50Mbps pretty consistantly if I get a well seeded torrent or 2 going, do a speed test and add them together

If you want save don't be cheap.
Some time we are forgetting this simple rule, and try to save money - loosing even more.
i don like big corporations, no i hate them, Rogers, Bell what can be worse - big monopolized corporations which care only about money and don't give a dam about people.but to be honest - they really do provide the service.
few worlds about Internet , my personal opinion - it should be free, yes free for everyone and forever, because Internet first wall - information, and information must be free for everyone, of course if we live in the free world. money providers can make from advertising's and on commissions from sale. but they still charge us and we still looking for better deal.
I'm not an exception so i find a DSL provider - “Acanac”, at first - it looks promising: good price, no need ground line, but the price was base on one year prepaid, and if you don't have a ground line you must pay a dry-line fee, and still price compatible to others, but service - ….
first - the speed, promise 6Mbit - hardly get 4, and this only download, upload never get close to premised. And if you are planing to use IP- phone - forget about.
and god forbid if you have to move to the new place, this is really pain in the a.., if you lucky in a month you get our service, but we have in GTA arias where no DSL available, and if you think Acanac will tell you, you are mistaking, they will temporize until you get fed-up and start calling around to find out what is going on, and after you realise no way to get a DSL service at your place, and start asking your money back, (by i-mail only), they inform you after 3 month that they can cancel your contract but can not give your money back because 30 days period - gone.
On the and - you lost more than $400.00 and don't have Internet. So you calling Rogers and get service from them and paying almost twice from what you should paying at the first place.
Lesson: If you want save don’t be cheap!

I'm with Teksavvy in Ajax ON, High Speed Internet Premium. Advertised speed is 5M down, 800k up. 200GB download cap. $31.95 / month.
Thought I would add my ISP into the list as I don't see it in this thread so far.
Subsidiary of Terago Network Winnipeg
-advertized download/upload speeds: 60 times dial-up?
-Actual download/upload speeds Mbps: 0.23/0.30
-download limit: 15 gigs
-Line of sight 900MHz, Motorola Canopy, AP is about 15km away
-charge: $75/mo + $15/mo for static IP, $250 install fee
-down time: about 10%, during heavy precip, fog etc., and planned outages (network upgrades etc)
I am rather jealous seeing other ISP capacity and cost. I am in a very remote rural area and this is the only ISP other than MTS dial-up which is only about 20Kbps.
I would like to try satellite two way internet but install cost is almost $3k!

Shaw is my ISP. I've got the "Warp" package which normally costs ~$100/mo.
The download speed varies, but the upload speed is usually pretty close to 3mbps. I've seen the download speed go as low as ~30mbps at times.

Acanac, nothing to brag about but overall good 5000/800kbps service for $25 on a contract with no caps.
I read a lot of bad comments about Acanac perhaps they are all true, but each individual has different expectations, some need to download a lot, some need dry loop, some need voice over IP. All this will give mixed results with any internet provider. I have non of this issues and base my opinion on basic everyday internet browsing. Based on my needs, overall I am happy with Acanac.
Just to add to this, some time ago I was with Bell. I was happy with Bell but their billing practices drove me away. I think Bell is creating so many offers and bundles that at the end it is confusing even their customer service. At the end we are paying for their erroneous billing and it takes countless calls and emails to get your money back. I cannot comment on Acanac's technical support as I never used it. I had problem with Acanac,s billing once but it was resolved.
The worst internet provider experience I had with CoopTel. Everything was wrong, the line speed, the technical support, the over-billing, canceling of service, waiting three months to get my refund back because of their "company policy".

I am with Rogers in Toronto, and live near Yorkdale Mall
At 5:35 pm on a Thursday I got this from SpeedTest
I have their package that costs about $50 with taxes.
Is there any point to this thread? I mean as many people have pointed out the burst speed is not indicative of sustained speeds. Do any of the speed tests take this into account?
2011-02-09, 01:36 PM
There's no way for speedtests like on Speedtest.net to take Powerboost into account. The best way, even for those without Powerboost to check their sustained speed is go to testmy.net and do a 100-200 mb download test. That will get you the real, sustained speed over a large download.

With Bell Aliant
169$ for Internet, Home Phone and TV
Fiber Optic Line
$169. Very interesting. What phone service? and What TV service (i.e., what kind of channels are included)?
