Value for money:
(ratings match consensus)
I currently have the Express package from Start which is 18 Mbps down and 512 Kbps up and I am using my Motorola SB5100 modem which other than the lack of channel bonding has zero issues and runs just like the day that I got it.
I did a transfer from Rogers to Start so I was able to save the $50 activation fee and since I already owned my own modem the setup was easy, I even had a representative from Start call me to confirm if my activation had been successful.
I have been with Start since July and since than their have been no outages to report and no speed issues.

UPDATE June 14, 2013
I've upgraded to the new Express package, 25 Mbps down and 2 Mbps up and I've also upgraded my modem to a DCM475. The speeds are solid throughout the day and the unlimited window between 2-8 AM more than makes up for losing 50GB from my cap.

modem upgrade I'd say its about time to upgrade your modem
Re: modem upgrade I know that I should upgrade but I don't see the need to spend $100 on a new modem.
Re: You need a new Modem ... Maybe. The Motorola SB5100 and the SB5101N are pretty much the exact same thing except the SB5101N has a USB port, a newer web interface and some other design differences, although performance wise their is no difference.
