Re: Great Service Start

kcorscadden: Whereabouts in Kingston are you? I just cancelled Bell in the Greenwood Park area, looking forward to what Start can provide... How are your speeds?

I am located near the Cat Centre and the speeds are pretty good. The one drawback to cable is that speeds do fluctuate. Last night I was getting 3 Mbps vs the 30 Mbps I would normally get 30 Mbps.

It doesn't matter if it's Cogeco or Start, cable will fluctuate vs DSL where it is a set profile.

The biggest selling point for me was that for $10 more I could get 30/2 with Start/Cogeco vs 7/512 that I was getting with Teksavvy/Bell. With the extra 100 gigs in cap, it's a no brainer as for the most part my download speed will be higher than my DSL connection was.

DSL can also get congested the same way cable can. It just depends on your area and what the usage is.
