  • This information is ancient. Bell now offers MAX services. I am PAYING for MAX 16 - they also have MAX 12. My highest speed to date has been 10 and that was like once in two months of testing. So I am getting SERIOUSLY ripped-off considering my AVERAGE speed is 3 Mbps - while, again - paying for 16 Mbps!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • 310-SURF send you to http://service.sympatico.ca/index.cfm?method=categories.view&category_id=654 - they subsequently ask to download the Alcatel USB Modem driver executable and measure your "transfer rate" based on the time to download, I find this unreliable.
