Videotron 8mbps or 10mbps??

Hi,

Videotron 8mb cable has been upgraded to 10mbps.. eBox has also updated their speed from 8mbps to 10mbps.

On trksavvy, i still see 8mbps for quebec cable. Is this an error or teksavvy has not upgraded the speed?

Thx!

IMHO there's no real world download advantage between 8 and 10mbps. Just a marketing ploy with no consumer benefit period..........Just another Christmas "spend your money here" option.

Speed is currently being upgraded to 10 Mbits across the cable network footprint. Some client do benefit from the new speed some don't.

Usually all new clients get the upgrade to 10 Mbits but i may be wrong. Don't take this for cash. It's part of the reason why we advertise 10 Mbits.

The official date where it should be completed is early 2013 at which point the cable operator will update their website and send a letter to the CRTC to have the name changed.
