The initial transfer didn't work out because of poor coordination between TekSavvy and Rogers. As a result, I was down for 3 days. This was after I followed the suggested process as noted in these forums.
This was followed by being down for 11 days after receiving slightly more than 2 weeks of decent service. What I mean by decent is that there was noticeable congestion between 7 and 10pm but not to the point where it was unusable.
I was with Rogers for 11 years, downtime was measured in hours (often less than 1), not days!
Tech Support was brutal. I'm almost certain that most of them don't read the notes or don't know how to read the notes on the account as every time I called in we had to give them all my modem information again. Why is this???
The grass isn't always greener @ TekSavvy. Often times, it's yellow!
Congestion has gone from noticeable to terrible. No YouTube, no XBOX, only text based web pages load decently...back to the late 90's everyone!
Absolutely disgusting speeds from 7pm onwards. The internet is unusable for anything other than text based websites. The promised POI upgrade is always just around the corner but from what I gather this has been the case for months now. Just terrible.
I'm pretty sure they have oversold again. The speed at 6pm is 1.42 Mbps. Thank you TSI for the "excellent" service...
