My Other Reviews

I'll keep it simple.

I ordered on December 7th for a January 3rd install. Jan. 3rd came and I plugged in the modem that Distributel sent me (SB5101), and within minutes I was no longer a Rogers customer. Speeds have been identical (overall speeds with Rogers in my neighbourhood are good), but there's no throttling (I don't do much torrenting, but from the testing I did before/after the switch, there's definitely a difference). I stream regularly from Netflix without issues. So far, I'm a very happy customer. If I had to improve anything, all I would say is expand the tech support hours (haven't had to use them yet though), and perhaps knock $5 off the price and let me bring my own modem.
