I am on the unlimited dry loop. I started out on the 200GB (now 300GB) plan dry loop, but as someone who works on, with and supporting the internet, I am a heavy user (or as Bell calls me, abuser). Although Bell may limit my speed to 5 Mbps (actually, I'm on the 7Mbps profile because of line problems, getting 6.6Mbps now), using MLPPP allows me to bypass Bells throttling and actually get what I pay for.

I purchased a TP-Link ADSL 2+ modem at a local store and it works great with the service. I am using a D-Link DIR-825 Wireless N router with OpenWRT as the latest D-Link firmware doesn't route IPv6 traffic properly (they are missing the default route for a static IPv6 on PPPoE). I will shortly be upgrading to OpenWRT/MLPPP in order to restore MLPPP capabilities to my router (I was using it previously on a Cisco 831).
