Re: Fibe TV without Inet

There is a reason I asked if anyone has got it without. I am not paying bell for their slow internet and low caps. I have 75/2 with Rogers now, and pay $49.99 now, plus free modem, with 250 gigs. I can easily burst to 150 down, and sustain it for a good 30 plus minutes. I have 5 people in my household, all of whom are connected to the internet doing various bw intensive stuff at the same time, or at various times. I am not concerned with burst speeds, as I am sustained, and since my wiggle room would be on a good day, 15 down, that doesn't leave much room. I could care less about upload, as we don't do much to care.

Add to my above, I am running voip in my house, and other background, low bw using devices, like xbox, ps3,, iphones, and blackberry phones and 3 tablets, the last thing I want to deal with is a bottle neck, or setting up QOS, network rules etc.

My last reason for not wanting bell internet, is I am sick of this triple play stuff. Personally, its that bundling of items that has started the big screw of the consumer.
