Re: [DSL] VDSL - 25/7 Congestion

My main internet activity is live tv streaming in the evenings. I would be happy with 12-15 meg during prime time because it would be enough for this purpose, but the fluctuations in the bit rate causes constant buffering. I myself don't download because there's nothing worth downloading IMHO.

Hmm, this is still going on?

Still in my deciding mode on who to switch too when my Bell promo rate ends.

This congestion issue does not bode well in my book...

Would of prob gotten my neighbour to switch too, but not with these issues.

Maybe I should consider *shudder* Acanac!

customers are paying $68 a month and they should get a reasonable up-to speed.

For every DSLr user that would come here and lambast TSI for a weak connection, there are 20 Gramma Jones's and 20 Uncle Bobs that'll pay $68 a month every month without ever looking at their bill and be thoroughly ignorant of what they're getting for that $68. They connect. They get their email. They look at their Facebook. They're happy. That's it that's all.

Customers like us that are analyzing every bloody bit byte and baud are a total pain in the ass and barely worth the trouble.

i don't really think that is TSI's target market. it's also really bad form to oversell a service, this isn't the 90s anymore.

I still think I'll make the speed upgrade from my 5mbit profile instead of switching to a Bell profile.

I can probably still live with the Teksavvy bandwidth inconsistencies as they are offset by Teksavvy's overage policies - Bell's max overage charges are 125GB and $80 Max (vs Teksavvy's 200GB and $20 + off peak hours)...

Bell's ability to give me true to speed will just bring me closer to their max cap

Anyone disagree with my reasoning?

Yeah I think we all agree that you are better off staying with Teksavvy's just for the awful 125GB cap and $80 Max for overage which would pay for a 2nd TSI account!

Their customer base changed when they started advertising on billboards, buses and on TV.

Does the crtc have any hearings or proceedings scheduled for this topic (interconnection rates) currently?

Bell's network seems to have an issue at the AGGREGATION point in the centre. For two or three days it's major packet loss.

TekSavvy, can somebody comment the issue and shed the light on any upcoming plans to finally fix this?

It seems like it's going to be ignored as a major problem. If so, then there should be an option for customers to pay up to $60 (in my case 2x$60) for such "up to" service!!!
