When and why are we getting speed upgrades.

I saw few comments about faster speeds, when are we getting them? Around what time?

Wasn't the CRTC/speed upgrades were declined or something.

as mentioned on other threads... TSI and all others connected via NON-AGGREGATED will not see speed upgrades until they move over to AGGREGATED.. TSI had to do this anyway by November of this year.. They are working on starting the process sooner, but no dates have been given or set, accept it will start within the next month or so.

This needs to be top priority...1mbps upload is pathetic.

I can't even express how excited I am for 4 mbps or 3mbps or whatever it is we're getting. It'll make my job (That pays the bills) 3-4 times faster D: Maybe I'll be able to skype when someone else in my house is skyping or uploading an attachement to an email! GASP

Ugh that's so far away..

I can't even upload hd vids to my youtube channel without turning off my webcam or leaving it overnight when I go to sleep.

if you need it now to upload, move to another provider until TSI can get the new packages or consider getting 25/10 DSL.

That is assuming either are options. The other providers have pathetic caps and plenty of people in areas who cannot get 25/10 service.

Use QoS on your router. Once it's properly set up (I'm running Tomato on a WRT54GL) VoIP and skype works fine as the router balances other traffic.

i'm not sure what world you live in, but 350GB/month is not pathetic for $59/month, especially with Bell now offering unlimited upgrades too on their packages for $10-30 depending on the bundle.

Looks like you live in your own world. Most of the rest of the world doesn't even know the meaning of the "internet caps" term. Once I mentioned it to someone and they thought it was some kind of censorship.

Its 150GB and your second point is about Bell. I have no Bell services. So I have to go buy 2 other services worth more than the whole connection to get the bundle discount. Ya, that makes a whole lot of sense.

Even with QoS that is assuming there is enough bandwidth in the first place.

It's 350GB as shaded correctly stated, or 250GB for the package with 3Mbps upload which is the upgrade for the out-going 28/1.

Btw, you don't need a bundle to get the unlimited promotion, just the cheaper rate of $10 instead of $30. Which is $5 then Rogers' long gone over usage cap.

25/10 from Bell is $57.95, + $30, is $87.95. TekSavvy's current unlimited 25/10 is $77.99 + $8, which is $85.99. There's dry loop fees too, can't find them easily on Bell's website. But as you can see with the new unlimited offerings from Bell, the service is more or less on par with TekSavvy's pricing now.

I'm not even on that speed tier and you're assuming that is what I want.

No, I assumed nothing. Optional , mentioned the 35/3 and 45/4 packages whereas you never made any mention as to what tier you're on. You also responded to shaded who was responding to Optional. Maybe next time you should make a more clear post.

Love or hate Bell, they are now price matching the TPIAs. And when I had Bell when it was Symptico and Rogers Hi Speed 2 years go, I never once had an issue with reliability or stability of the their internet services. Just their pricing.

I don't trust Bell/Rogers/Cogeco/Videotron to have good pricing without wholesalers.
That is reason not to go with Bell/Rogers/Cogeco/Videotron.

+1. Thank you for saying that. I had no issue with Bell pricing, what I had issue with is their crappy service, the games they play and the lousy way they treat long term customers. A Bell free household is a much nicer place.

Last I checked, Bell does not charge "dry loop fees" to their own customers.
That's a TPIA thing (instigated by the CRTC/Bell, yes).

The last thing I want to do is go back to Rogers or Bell and have to waste my precious time pouring over my monthly bills when they come. Wasting time to catch all the 'billing errors' they make month in and out, trying to steal some extra.

If you do not have a POTS line from Bell -- you pay dry loop fee -- (or at least I did back when i had Bell DSL and no Phone service)
