Best Internet provider for doing VoIP?
Which ISP / technology will give me the best, most reliable, VoIP experience?
I believe that I won't need high-bandwidth, but will need low latency and good consistency.
I'm in Etobicoke and I know that my options include cable from TekSavvy or Rogers and Bell DSL. I probably wouldn't go with TekSavvy DSL because I have to pay an extra $9.25 for the dry loop fee.
I'm familiar with the concern that cable Internet is shared, but I'm not sure how big a factor that is, or how to balance that against the sense that cable is generally better.

As a former TekSavvy customer, I don't recommend them. I know a great deal of people have good experiences with TekSavvy, and that's great. Where they fall short is if you have a problem, which I did - my speed dropped to a tiny fraction of what was advertised. I got an eight word response stating they didn't know why I was having the problem. If I remember correctly, I could have paid $99 for a tech visit, but I didn't want to do that.
If you need massive amounts of bandwith for a good price, then they're a good deal, but it sounds like you don't. Let's see if someone can comment on your other two options.
