The speed is amazing, up to 80/80 up. . Offered static ip for free. 20 dollars a month, they said i can use my own wifi router or purchase theirs) the wifi router i had from telus didnt have their frequency so when they came to install, they even used my telus v1000h as my home access point and connected the wan port to their router that was outside. Not everyone needs their AP/router outside.

They gave me 30 days free. Speeds are pretty good. Have only been getting faster since 2009.

There were some drop outs when they were doing maitenence but that only lasted 15 minutes. They did however give me another free month for that.

update - the pings have gone even lower!!

Bottom line - if you are in Calgary, and dont like the incumbents, give them a try...

update - asked for a US IP adress for netflix - it works!

Wish there was stuff like this in Vancouver. Don't say Novus.
Great speeds.
