Hey everyone.. new to the forum, was wondering if anyone could give me the lowdown on the best options for both Cable and Internet in Toronto. I lived in Waterloo for a while and had Rogers for both, but found it very expensive. I've heard Teksavvy is gaining some momentum. Thanks for the advice!

Teksavvy is great for DSL internet but their speed is limited to 5 megs. If you don't have a active phone line from them or Bell you have to pay a dry loop fee that adds about 10 bucks to the bill. They don't offer tv service (yet) but have partnered with Rogers for internet. Once connected (a bit of a challenge) you're good. Aside from Over the Air reception, Rogers, Bell and Shaw Direct are your only choices for TV. I'm currently with Rogers and I agree, the costs are getting higher and higher but unless you cut back to bare bones choice all the services are pricey.

The big benefit of going with Teksavvy Cable Internet is the much more reasonable bandwidth caps. I guess it all depends on how much you use per month. With that said, if you go Teksavvy, you will have to get your own modem (or get one from them), and you will have to pay a start-up fee. Some people have experienced quirks where the Rogers tech does not show for the appointment, but I believe this is a small percentage overall.

As I posted in the Kingston thread, the best value solution is Teksavvy for phone/internet + Ontario Value package for TV from Shaw Direct.
