Administrators, I urge you to support this enterprise that offer an alternative to Canadians and consider the effort and support Start receive from all these participating members.

So, um, you just decided to reg yesterday (same day as the post) only so you can "urge the Administrators" to add this forum?
(after-all you didn't reg any other time while lurking here for years)

That is some serious love there. A little too serious

When you evaluate the customer support / feedback of Start...

What support and feedback did you use? I don't see much of anything. At all. How did you evaluate this? Based on one forum post?

Seems to be a more ontario-centric company not really offering much of anything to "Canadians" at all. Acanac offers more to "Canadians" a a whole. So does Ebox and both those companies *actually* have feedback that people can *actually* evaluate instead of just made up words in a post from someone who just reg'd so that the admin's can be shown how urgent this is, LOL.

Yeah, a little too much love and rhetoric is that post. It's past borderline.

'scuse me while I roll my eyeballs...

A healthy dose of skepticism and critical thinking are important in life. But critical hysteria will make you a cynic. You TROLL!

I am not an active poster hence the late response and am have not been "lurking here for years". The fact that I was motivated enough to joined a forum after just visiting for the first time and seeing the petition means that I viewed it as important and wanted to highlight my case as an example. I am independent of Start and receive no benefit directly/indirectly from them. All wordings/expressions are of my independent opinion.

If you actually read my original post, you will see that I committed to another TPIA promotion because of the different in accessibility and the reach of their marketing instead of Start(it is Acanac; they are active in Ontario and Quebec not nation wide). And the reason for my research of dsl forums is because of the hassle of switching from Rogers to them and the handling of my account by their reps. I know if I had issues then there must be others as well. If you visit the company-own forums and read through their customers posting you can evaluate the difference in response to questions and follow-up actions of the TPIAs. This is not the place to elaborate. Go do your own HOMEWORK. There's no cheating in life!

I don't work in the computer science/IT sector but can research and understand most technology when I need to. If any moderator wants to contact me directly, then I will gladly verify my information and circumstances. The fact that I lived in TO is IRRELEVANT to the petition for an online forum where users can share their experiences, issues and information. More choices and better information is a positive for all Canadians not just for those living close to a certain TPIA. It allows you to make a more informed decision. When more users support well run companies then they can expand.

I am stuck until the promotional period expire; it means it is a sunk cost and the legality of the agreement is preventing me from getting a no loss refund. But will I renew given the choices? NO. A long reply, but necessarily so.

Yes, I wholeheartedly agree. Up until now there are ways too many threads on Start Communications. I don't know where to post comments or questions, especially when there are connection issues, e.g. was it due to Rogers or Start?. Hopefully this public forum for Start will be approved.

I agree. The Canadian broadband forum is getting flooded with Start questions. It's great another indy ISP growing strong in Canada.... but it's time for it to have its own home.

Expand your moderator at work

Of course, I AGREE ! ,
..., as in, "S" for "Start ...", right before "T" -for Teksavvy.
"Start Communications", their Paying CDN-Consumers' sake, deserves/needs that, at the very least.

(but "acanac" ? - NO! - )

The userbase is growing and the Start staff are very active here. They should get their own forum (like Teksavvy et al).
