My tech counsel has moved on, and I am beholding to that person to ensure everything 'computer' works in my life and up to his satisfaction.
So your tech buddy tells you to jump ship to a different ISP and you do it without questioning? What were his reasons?
Seems silly to me if your service was fine.
I will quote this post as it was the one needing most involved reply.
Do it without questioning? Nope. But my friend doesn't normally result in questions, he's the reason I get the answers though
At one time he had contemplated working for Teksavvy, and he would have been a good acquisition in my opinion
But circumstances were not ideal for him at that time if I recall.
I am routinely used to phoning him and asking him questions of a technology based nature and the speed at which he finds answers always surprises me. I've known the young man since hmm the early 90s. He's always enjoyed my confidence. I am indeed lucky.
I can routinely be best described as a dinosaur uncomfortable with new tricks
I hate learning the new. I do know something of business though, and I do wish he had confidence in his ability to run his own. I've yet to meet anyone his equal when it comes to computers. He possesses natural talent you can't get at a college.
At any rate, I have migrated to Electronic Box. It's not always about raw specifics of price or specific details with the service though, it's the sum of the whole. But, I will need to be with EB for a couple of years with no troubles before they get given special mention. Respect is something that has to be earned after all.
There ARE a few names on the market that can occasionally be worthy of checking into. Sometimes the person's specific location makes all the difference. Being in a old home or a new home, being in a residence or an apartment building. Being rural or urban. I for instance live in an old building, that has seen a lot of rebuilding over the years, I live downtown, but Lindsay sure isn't the middle of Toronto either.
I have yet to have a problem with dsl service and when everyone was jumping on the cable band wagon, I simply wasn't all that interested.
Everyone needs to remember, each customer brings their own variables to the table.
I have managed to go to a speed increase, and a major price decrease and I am using a Voip phone now. All in all, I am getting more for a lot less. But it works for me.
