Re: ikTel Networks - Niagara ISP

Niagara Falls, Fort Erie, Thorold and NOTL maybe a single POI
St. Catharine's has it's own according to the TPIA POI list.
Welland has a POI listed.

I can almost say with certainty that Thorold will be part of the St. Catharines POI, not Niagara Falls. NOTL, NF and FE are probably one single POI.

Good to see Gigabit on the list now, makes a lot of sense.

As for bandwidth overages, it looks to be the same situation as with Teksavvy and other TPIA providers on Cogeco and, for that matter, Rogers too. Overage fees are listed in the tariff, but no one is currently charging for them. That could change at any time. As it stands right now, I'm not overly worried.


Well if that's the case I think I'm going to give it a trial run myself. The 14/1 Tier seems the best deal for both consumer and wholesaler based off TPIA rates, and at $34.79 + tax for a few months I can afford to keep my current Tek setup for 3 months along side it to check it out and see what happens at that point.

Thank you for the information. I still wonder why Cogeco isn't charging. They filed in 2010 to be able to, and the only thing the CRTC made them change was to add a discount to the UBB rates after the Bell ruling of the same.

Do they just not have anything in place for the moment to be able to charge? Did the CRTC "review" make the Cable Co's wary of charging UBB until all the dust settled? I would love for this to all work out nicely I'd just really like some more information about why the tariff isn't being strictly enforced.

Well here's the thing, even in the IAW TPIA days, Cogeco still wasn't able to charge bandwidth on them.

I'm picking up the modem this afternoon. I'll post a report as soon as I get it home and hook it up.
