looking to upgrade from Internet Essential
I'm currently paying full price for Internet Essential (2 MB) on a grandfathered plan that has a higer cap than currently offered (20 GB, I think, so it's notihng special, but better than thr 2GB currently offered).
My neighbourhood has recently upgraded speedwise, and I know my 2Wire was sync above 12 MB. (I'm about 400m from the remote)
I'd like to know my options before I phone Bell.
1. a better modem than the 2wire, at least one that Bell allows the user to see the firewall logs and statistics
2. higher speeds - I'm thinking either 6 or 12 MB, and a cap over 20 GB
3. pay less that the $44 or so I'm currently paying every month?
What can I get? Pricewise, I'd rather lock into a low rate indefinitely as opposed to getting something like 50% off for only 6 months, and I'd prefer to stay away from contracts.
