Bad "Performance has been fairly poor lately (September/October 2014)"
Overall "Good value ISP"
|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 value ISP. Speeds have been traditionally quite good but lately (Sept/Oct 2014) there has been some bad performance problems, especially during primetime.
To their credit, the TekSavvy staff have been soliciting feedback from their members in order to try to figure out exactly what the problem is.
- Native IPv6 in beta
- Netflix playback is pretty reliable
- Latency to services like Google is quite good
Not so good:
- "Rogers" NHL GameCenter tends to skip and stall, especially during primetime. Is fairly reliable, of course, on Rogers.
- Sony's PlayStation video service is problematic. HD playback isn't reliable.
General performance is quite good.
