Re: OVH pricing at Montreal datacenter is... insane?

The only other large consumer provider I left out was Bell that had an east coast footprint which is where OVH is located (i suppose Cogeco is decent too).

Anyways, I don't even see the point to this, they also have transit in NYC/NJ and Chicago which is again where all of eastern Canada goes into.

I'm sure they'll increasing their private and public peering over time in Canada, but they can't just go and peer with Tier 1s that would rather sell them bandwidth.

As mentioned above too with TSI, private peering doesn't mean fast performance (altho this seems to be because of TSI not really caring).

There is more to the Internet than just DSL / cable connections.

You've made that pretty clear.

Who said anything about peering? They could have made better choices for their Canadian transit options or purchased additional transit from other providers to fill in the gaps.
