(ratings match consensus)
I was with Teksavvy on a dry loop 5MB 300GB DSL service. Teksavvy was incredible with tech support 3-4 years ago. But with time, my connection wasn't very constant and the service kind of got worst. Sometime, I would get 2MB on speedtest and other time 5MB. My ping was between 60 and 120ms and I was getting frustrated.
But in january, with the new pricing of ElectronicBox and all the positive reviews, I decided to switch to a 8MB 250GB cable service. Paid 232$ for the first month (modem + installation + shipping + first month service + tx). Videotron came on february first and installed the cable. Setup the modem by myself and after 20 minutes of flashing, internet was there. Speedtest again and I'm at 8.03MB and a 6-9MS ping.
Youtube is now a lot faster as others kind of downloads too. And with a 250GB, I'm not going to go over if I'm a little bit careful.
Only negative about ElectronicBox is the lack of a first email with your information. To check how much your bandwith you spend, you need a "VL" code. I had to ask for it by email and I don't know why they don't send you an email with all your info when you subscribe. But they answered my email in 19 minutes. So it's not that bad. And I don't know if I'm supposed to have an email @electronicbox.net too. The sale person never asked me for this so it's probably no. Gmail is my friend after all.
Long live ElectronicBox. Very proud to be a customer of an independant Quebec ISP.
En français: ElectronicBox est super. N'hésitez pas à faire le move. Et surtout, débarrassez vous de votre ligne sèche. Quel tarif inutile que ce 10$ envoyé à Bell pour pas grand chose. Ma facture a descendu de 47$ à 43$ et c'est plus rapide, plus stable et je ne donne plus une cenne à Bell. Une belle compagnie Québécoise à encourager. Longue vie EB.
300 Mb I switch right away if it is 300 Mb. Sometimes I go beyond 250 Mb.
