Re: First morning of service with Start.ca

No doubt!

But even with the overpriced agg-POI you could still offer unlimited during off-peak periods. I'd definitely shift data transfers here to take advantage of that.

Cheers!

I suggested the same thing to rocca about a week ago as the off peak would be extremely beneficial for me as well. See »Re: New customer, question about account usage.

me 2, im waiting to see what the new aggregate Pricing would be by the end of the month, plus rogers might change the usage limits, actually they have according to redflag, it looks like things might get interesting

Do you know if they will drop or raise the usage limit? If you're already on lets say 25/2 150gb cap and they make the change would everyone on 25/2 currently just be grand fathered and pay the same price if they were to drop the cap to lets say 100gb? Kind of unfair if you're buying something and it changes on you........

I don't think Rocca even knows. It all depends upon what happens to the cost structure when the CRTC finally (re-)rules on it all.

Thus far, I'm really enjoying the 45/4 plan from Start.ca. No "review" from me yet, because it's only been a couple of weeks, and I'm waiting for a full billing cycle to pass first. But thus far, things are really good, and the staff are at least as good as Teksavvy used to be about 5 years ago (a major compliment!).

In the end though, after all of the ISPs are 100% on the agg-POI scheme, I'll be looking for the ISP who offers the largest download allowance. That's currently my only beef with Start.ca, and we're hoping that Rocca will do something about that in the next month or two.

Cheers

I will be doing the same + I hope that Start will increase bw allowance.

So it's not even possible to know that people on your current plans will be grandfathered or not? For the same price etc that they're currently on now? Because if things went for the worse I would want to subscribe now incase something bad we're to happen like drop the cap by 50gb or something.

It'd be hard to imagine things getting worse but I can't say 100% that will not be the case.

Okay. Well i'm going to be joining start today most likely, i'm not very hardcore bandwidth user probably about 30-40gb my self and my brother uses like 50gb per month so it will be great to have less congestion and higher speeds. :]

Me too, I am waiting patiently for the decision so I can upgrade to the advanced speed and give Start more of my money
I just can't risk the drop in bandwidth, i already am cutting it close sometimes.
