|Pre Sales information:|
Value for money:
(ratings match consensus)
I've used the following Toronto ISP's:
- Bell Fibe (25/7)
- Rogers (Hybrid Fibre 60, Business 30/5, Business 150/10, Residential 150/10).
- TekSavvy 25/7, 25/10 and 50/10 VDSL2.
TekSavvy is a great ISP. Speeds have been traditionally quite good. In Sept-Nov of 2014 there were some performance issues, especially during primetime, but these were corrected by TekSavvy in mid/late November and the problem didn't make the service unusable.
TekSavvy staff were soliciting feedback from their members in order to try to figure out exactly what the problem is the entire time; this is great compared to larger carriers like Rogers, who effectively ignore the online community except for a few token staff.
- Native IPv6 for DSL customers
- Netflix playback is pretty reliable
- Latency, especially to services like Google, is quite good.
Overall, I'd recommend TekSavvy DSL, especially if you are getting a VDSL2 / FTTN plan.
