I'll take Shaw internet over Rogers without question...
One or two internet companies in a location, that is pretty standard in Canada.
If you are paying $50 for 10 mbps, $10 more for $60/month (maybe less with bundling), is over twice the speed.
If you are streaming out, you definately need more upload, as much as you can have is best.
Yes, I am not employed and looking for IT work. Have passport, will travel.
