How big is your TV? What do you usually watch?
I find that Hockey on my 52" TV really shows the problems with Bell Aliant's signal. With high-speed panning, you get a blocky image at times. However, if I'm watching a movie on HBO, I can't really see the difference.
I knew there would be a slight hit to video quality when I went to FibreOp, but I switched for the internet speed and the potential of IPTV.
I have 25/5 and I love it. It's a big jump from Ultra. I really notice the upload speed when posting HD files to Vimeo. What used to take over 1/2 hour on Ultra now takes a few minutes.
Also, Bell Aliant will soon offer services like whole-home PVR and On-Demand, which satellite cannot do at all, or as well. Satellite is basically offering all that it can, where IPTV will continue to evolve.
