[Extreme] Speed in Scarborough (Morningside/Kingston rd) Anyone know Rogers/Acanac speed in the Morningside/Kingston rd area? I know BELL DSL is very good where I am, and I was looking to find out information for Rogers in this area. Post code M1E
I'm at Kingston Rd & Guildwood, (M1J) and my speeds on TekSavvy cable are fine as long as their POI isn't congested. Not sure if this is the same local node as Morningside though.
My neighbour is with Rogers and he has no issues either.
GO LEAFS GO!
thanks for the fast response. I'm south of Kingston rd, near the bluffs. I was looking to go with Acanac which I believe is Rogers. Doesnt TekSavvy use Rogers? or am I mixed up?
I was under the impression that the 3rd party guys like teksavvy/Acanac "buy" a slice of the "Rogers Pie" and resell it. So everyone is still in the same boat? Unless they can put different rules in place for people with different providers?
I signed up for the 25/1 Acanac plan.. but all I care is that I get at least 5/1 consistently..,. I dont do torrents files so I dont really care for the P2P throttling.. but I need to transport some larger files or stream well.
I guess I'll find out in a couple weeks when they install.. if the line-speed sucks, I'll go back to DSL but find a faster provider.
Acanac Cable uses Rogers for their last mile, just like their DSL solution uses Bell for last mile.
Teksavvy Cable/DSL offerings are the same, they lease the incumbents Rogers/Bell last mile in Toronto.
GO LEAFS GO!
I see, so not the entire backbone is Rogers/Bell then? Just the "Last mile". So potentially that "last mile" could be the bottle next if there is congestion?
Yep from the head end to the CMTS all the way to the POI could be a Rogers issue, after that it becomes the IISP's problem.
