Value for money:

I have 2 lines with Colba, at the Papineau CO.

My wet line is running at 7 mbit/s, and my dry loop at 12 mbit (real speed, not sync rate). I consider it a good deal for the price. Both are at the same address, so I would recommending going with a dry loop, even if it increases the price by 10 $/month.

Order and install process was a mess, took over 2 weeks for the first line. The staff takes forever to call you back when you leave a message, and you pray that everything went ok with Bell, otherwise it can take forever.

So far speed has been reliable, I can max out my lines at almost any time of day or night without issue. had only one outage that lasted about 4 hours.
