Hey, START's routers/switches even have names now.

Here are a couple of updates related to the current thread.

This one contains some newer better speed test results :

»Phantom PING Apprehended !

This next direct link summarizes why I left Cogeco in the first place, links to some further threads for more details, explains some of what I like better about START, and is sort of like a couple of reviews bundled together :

After the Phantom PING was taken into custody for the 2nd time, my latest Ping is down to 10 or 11ms , using nexicom.speedtest.com , which seems to be the fastest test server, and one of 2 now in Toronto (Teksavvy is sponsoring the other).
