Possible switch from Cogeco to...

.......Teksavvy. 1. Do I need to provide 30 days notice to Cogeco to cancel service(I believe this BS has been outlawed) ? Any advice/problems from someone who has signed up with Teksavvy in the past ?

You should not need to provide 30 days notice to any provider. I cancelled Bell (to switch to Start cable internet and VOIP phone) and gave them 2 weeks notice.

So the OP wanted to switch from Cogeco to another provider. They may have already cut the cord, and realized that CABLE-TV is no longer the media that THEY wish to watch with.

They or anyone else who is fed up with "Central Commmand Ship Programming", may have any one of these alternative providers of Audio-Video programming.

A) OTA -Over the Air - Direct to an antenna.
B) Satellite TV
C) Internet to video-audio conversion box.
D) Anything else that elimates the action of so called media 'specialists' trying to decide when, and what I may read, listen, or view.

The power is now in your hand. You now have the ability to decide for yourself what, and when you wish to watch.

You should look into Carrytel or CanNet internet providers. Only $40 a month.

I too am patiently waiting until my promotion pricing is over as I will be switching from Cogeco because of their unbelievable full pricing I will be required to pay if I stay with them. I am with them for everything, TV (TiVo), Internet & Home Phone. Currently Start has excellent pricing for Internet & Home Phone, much less than Cogeco. My home phone with Cogeco will be $43.99/mth with the options I require, whereas Start is $15 with the options I require (no rocket science here), and I doubt Cogeco will match that. They don't seem to be interested in keeping customers after the promotion is over.

One advantage to Teksavvy is they provide IPv6 to their ADSL customers, in addition to IPv4.

I haven't lost my mind. It's around here...somewhere...

I had never heard of Carry Telecom before, their prices are extremely competitive and love the unlimited data plans with no throttling. Is there a catch? I noticed they even have the cable service available for my area through Cogeco? Just want to know a little more about them if you can.

I just connected to Carrytel to see how it works. So far (5 whole days!), so good.
40 mbps down, 10 up, $30 a month (plus tax). Carrytel does not offer TV streaming or VOIP phone service, but I don't need either.
Their maximum speed is 120/10, which I will likely migrate to.
Right now 40/10 is pretty good compared to DSL, which maxes out a 16/1 in this area.
