(ratings match consensus)

Moving from Ottawa to a small town greatly limited the available high speed options.

Thankfully, Start is a Cogeco reseller and was able to offer both excellent speeds and price to an area with limited competition.

I had a few questions before signing up, but Peter answered them within 24 hours, even on a weekend.

The installer arrived at the scheduled time, performed the connection and even explained the results (Higher Gauge Cable installed in the neighbourhood, which resulted in higher than expected line loss)

Upon changes to the available packages, my current package was grandfathered.

As an added bonus, start offers a referral bonus. It's not hard to refer people to the only affordable ISP in the area!
