So , just a note alot of what i said below has changed and or worked out in teksavvys favour so i am back with them on cable And happy!

************************************************************

Okay so I lied with my last review and because i paid 100 bucks for activation so i stayed with savvy for a year, on 25/10, now during prime time evening hours i experience slight congestion speeds lower to 10-15 mbps some nights, also Recently Teksavvy decided to betray its customers by not opposing the disclosure of its customers private info In any way shape or form, they even Agreed to this arrangment Prior to going to Court with The company in question by there own admission This does not directly affect me but i feel as a customer i have been betrayed and will be voting with my wallet soon. I hope teksavvy does well but its no longer the isp of the customer.

Long hold times for phone service the Only good techs are here on dslreports generally. and with the new Owner/management taking the company more into a Bigbox Direction and less of a Customer first value isp. Also they are among the Highest priced of The Independent Isps Now, which would be fine if they offered a premium but they do not have anything that Differentates them from the crowd in a positive fashion.

I am Now Looking at switching to Ebox for a savings of 15-20 dollars a month on a near identical Package.

Have to ask this

I have to ask this. Do you think Ebox would even do what TSI has done so far by insisting that they inform their customers?

Ebox won't even answer the simplest of questions, let alone have any sort of compliant privacy policy, as required.

So it just got me thinking why you say the above, yet also state you are moving to a company that shows they have zero regard for their users privacy and privacy laws.

It made me scratch my head....

Re: Have to ask this

Teksavvy merely insisted that they follow notice and notice which is actually in the law.. nothing special there, as far as if ebox is better privacy wise As of this current date They have not yet Proven Otherwise Maybe they will In future or maybe the mass exodus of users from teksavvy will Make isps in canada Think twice before sending a message that says we are not worth the effort.

Tx... Yeah right... one guy has billing problems and it's just like BHell. In case you don't know it BHell has millions of customers and millions of billing issues as you suggest. Hardly an equal comparison. Take you flame somewhere else. It's no secret you don't like TSI why continually hang in their forum.

1. You're now replying almost 1 year later? lol...

Seeing as i donated money to this great community you're one to speak. Since you speak so openly about how and where i should "hang" maybe you should put in a few dollars to help DSLR. Member since 2005 yet you haven't contributed to this awesome site. Little surprised since you try telling people where they should "hang"

I don't know how many times i need to tell you this your fanboi'ish ways do not help Teksavvy. You talk to me about flaming yet your reply to this review says nothing but a trolling fanboi with nothing good to say.

This is a review, leave it as such. Don't spew your fanboi crap in here.

The numbers between Bell and Teksavvy have nothing to do with it. The review simply states he was having the same billing issues. Who cares about the number of users. Your argument there alone make's it even more a joke since Teksavvy shouldn't be having the same billing issues. After all they don't have the millions and millions Bell does right?

Quit fighting with every customer that doesn't like Teksavvy like you do. Each is allowed their opinion, but you shoving your love for TSI down everyones throat gets a little irritating. TSI doesn't need groupies
