Re: ikTel Networks - Niagara ISP

I picked up a modem last week. Cogeco comes Monday to hook up the line. Luckily I don't work Monday because it's an 8am-5pm deal.
I'll report back after I've had it for a day or two.

Well, I've had it for a day now and I'm pleased. I'm getting full 14mbit consistently. I'm going to wait a week just in case, but if there are no problems, TekSavvy will lose a customer.

They were great, but they let Bell take away 70% of the speed I had for a year. If I leased a car, and after a year they came and took away the doors, radio, roof, trunk, and replaced the engine with a lawnmower motor, leaving me with a steering wheel, and gas tank that goes 15 km/h, do you think I'd pay the same damn price?

I know it's not their fault, but I can't stand their response to me, "oh well we told bell and they said that's as fast as they can give you, so if you want internet, that's the price, and you don't get a credit or discount."

F##k Bell, they have put us in the stone age of internet service.

I'm just curious, you're posting (presumably from home) from a cogentco.com address.

Are you getting an American IP?

Two sites to check:

»www.ipaddresslocation.org/

and

»software77.net/geo-ip/

Getting access to Hulu/Pandora and the other American streaming sites would be a nice perk
