SaskTel is coming to install fiber at my house TODAY!
Finally after 8 years of waiting and looking, it is happening.
EDIT: Sadly it is a no-go. Some splicing needs to be done before I can get service. Expecting Mid February.

|Wallboy||So what is Sasktel's reply to Shaw's new 300/600 mbps tiers? Last time Shaw increased their speeds, Sasktel was really quick to also increase speeds on their two top tier packages.|

Got some good news:
1. The maps have been updated at Availability | internet | SaskTel again.
2. My part of Saskatoon is FINALLY getting infiNET!
A few weeks ago, we got the letter with our bill saying they were starting construction in about 4 weeks time.
They were working on an side street near our house a couple weeks earlier putting in conduit and then a few days later, putting fiber into that conduit.
A few days ago we got a sign on our door saying that "Phase 1 is now complete" and that "Our network is now up to your property line, we'll come by in a few weeks to bring infiNET into your yard." I didn't see them lay any fiber up to our property line, so I assume it's coming in to our yard from the mentioned side street straight into our yard, but I really don't know.

The Sasktel contractors connected all the houses in my neighbourhood back in October. The fibre is sitting on a spool on my house. However, it is not in my house yet. I was wondering if anyone knows how long it usually takes for Sasktel to connect the fibre once it is at your house. It has been over three months and I tried calling and emailing but they give me a generic answer of "we do not have a date for your area yet"

|Wallboy||Seems Sasktel just silently upgraded their Internet speeds. I'm on Mach 1 and all of sudden noticed I was getting 175/25. Went and checked their plans on their site and sure enough that is the new speeds for Mach 1 package. Not sure if the other packages changed|

Transition was a little rough at first, but we managed to fix it up. Speedtest showed it to be sufficiently close to the advertised speed of 100 mbps (94-95-ish). Anything is better than the 5mbps we were capped at because of being bundled with TV.
SaskTel seems to have switched back to a Pace (read: 2Wire. Now they're owned by Arris) modem for the router instead of Actiontec.

|versys5||One other thing... would a smart switch with vlan work. I found a a TP link 5 port gigabit smart switch for 30$.|

|versys5||I'm curious if it's possible, using intel proset driver for my NIC, enabling vlan function using vlan ID 1000 and connecting directly to the ONT. Would it obtain an public ip and connect to the Internet? I only have internet service, 260/60Mbs. I wold also like to lose the actiontec gateway. I suspect it is causing latency issues among other problems.|

generally we carry ID, but usually the big sasktel trucks or vans give us away as employees.
some of the fiber work has been contracted out, and you would have been notified by mail a fair bit in advance that this work would be occurring

Hi. Just had a worker knock on our door. He told me that he was from SaskTel, no identification. He explained that they were going to put fiber optics in the box behind the house in the back alley into our house.
Where is the letter of explanation about this happening in the neighbourhood?
Do the employees wear ID?

that makes zero sense
there's no way your 25mbps service magically ramped up to 40mbps

|evox45||Thank you! My question could be something more towards my VPN provider (Ive been talking with them for around 2 weeks now and still cannot come to a solution). Basically I have a service called private internet access. When I was on the copper my 25Mbps connection would actually get faster (up to 40Mbps). Since I have gotten fiber which is now the 100Mbps I can only get 5Mbps with the vpn on... I have eliminated the actiontec router with a managed switch and now come strait to my asus RT-N66U Router. Yet I still cannot get it setup right. What bothers me is nothing on the software side changed. The only thing that changed was the equipment. If anyone can give me a few hints that would be awesome. If not ill start browsing in the home computing forums. Thanks!|

|Dr.Dave||If your questions are specific to configuring your VPN on infiNET, it makes sense to post them here and someone may be able to answer. If they are more general, there are several VPN threads in the Home Computing forum that may be useful.|
