Re: Paying $200 a month for Rogers... need a change

None of them are "re-selling" Rogers cable. They use the last mile of Rogers infrastructure, but after that they own and run their own systems. It's probably more accurate to refer to them as third party providers.

Each provider has their upsides and downslides. Acanac requires you to pre-pay for a full year (no refunds) to get their lowest price. Distributel requires you to rent or buy the modem from them (no bring-your-own modem). Teksavvy seems to have more of a customer-service emphasis, which I assume is one reason their rates are a little higher. Start doesn't offer unlimited packages.

My advice would be, if you want to save a little money, you can go for a 18Mbps package, rather than the highest 28Mbs. If you're just using streaming for one or two people, you probably won't be able to notice a difference.

Yeah, what part of that is inaccurate? 'Last mile' is an expression, not a literal mile. But your connection to these independent ISP's goes through their own servers.

A reseller is something like Redbox, which just re-labels the Teksavvy service, with perhaps a slight difference in the billing
