Wireless Internet in Amherstburg/CDP-Wise or G1 Broadband Opinions
I'm looking for some first hand experience with a wireless ISP in the Amherstburg, Ontario area. I'm stuck between two areas blessed with access to both DSL and cable...I can actually see where it's available from my house...but my only option is dial-up or wireless, and I'm completely fed up with dial-up.
Does anyone know anything about CDP-Wise out of Amherstburg, or G1 Broadband out of Harrow?
CPD-Wise states their speed won't drop below 1Mbps, but doesn't specify how fast the connection is otherwise. They want $50/month for min 1Mpbs down/182Kbps up with a 50Gb cap. They also require a 3 year contract and a $150 install fee, so I would like to know what people are seeing in the real world before I sign up. I'm worried that it will be too slow for gaming/video if it doesn't get much over 1Mpbs, and 3 years is a long time to be locked into something that isn't really fast enough for what I want to do, let alone what will be needed in the coming years.
I just ran across the G1 Broadband site tonight and know nothing about them, but they have packages ranging from 1Mpbs/512Kbps to 5Mbps/1Mbps. I may be slightly out of their coverage area, so this may end up not being much of a choice.
I just want to be able to do get online at a decent speed and do some gaming, watch videos, etc...the things most of the civilized world does online these days.
Any other wireless ISP provider suggestions? Xplornet seems to have as many complaints as positive comments. I can't find much about Lightwave...which is now Teksavvy? As you can see, I need help.
