nope no idea WTF tek is doing and how start is in all rogers areas but tek cable is not. I was shocked tek cable is not even in barrie yet but being as they're not there I don't see them coming to midland anytime soon.
Start is on the aggregated model, where they can put their hardware in a single location to provide service to the entire Rogers network.
Teksavvy got into the game earlier and are on the disaggregated model, where they have to put hardware in each city (in larger cities, multiple locations within the city) to provide service to just that one city (or in larger cities, just a portion of the city).
In theory Teksavvy could switch from disaggregated to aggregated, but it would probably mean they'd be taking losses on what they've put in place now.
(Disaggregated is being phased out, so whether they want to or not they'll be switching eventually)
