Wow...yep, agreed.

Now I'm hoping for similar plans for Ontario agg (Rogers cable) but I doubt it's gonna be possible given the cable vs DSL fee's you guys now pay

25Mbps Unlimited doesn't change? too bad.

I hope 50Mbps comes in soon at a reasonable price.

Hi Mark, I am looking to switch to TekSavvy. I have been with Telus for many years both Internet and Homephone and they no longer value this I guess.
Anyway, I am looking to dump both and go with TekSavvy.
25 mbps DSL
300 Gigs - $44.99

After the CRTC (BAD) decision, does this mean I still need to also get the dryloop option?
So in total I would be paying:
300 Gigs - $44.99 (25 mbps)
+ $11.39 / month Dryloop
= $56.38 + taxes?
If yes then it seems I should look at your Cable option, which is also available in my area.

Thanks, and it refreshing to see such feedback and concern coming from a CEO of the company to his customers.
Cheers!

Nothing is set for prices just yet... All that is currently provided is the plan themselves. As for dryloop etc, it's still up in the air.

But your price calculations seem like they fit.
You could always keep the land line with Telus & not have to pay for dryloop.

I'd suggest you wait until we release official prices. This way you'll be better in tune to take your decision.

This doesn't look too bad, good work Marc.

How do I find out what band I am in?

Since Telus is offering the higher 50M speed tier (and maybe going to offer higher?) , I'm wondering about modem compatibility for the future.

Any thoughts on this?

Does TekSavvy have loop bonding setup because I am too far away to get 50mbps service. I contacted Symtex however and he said they could use the Actiontech V2000H to bond two 25mbps lines. Also can one of your staff PM me for what band I am in?

I'm already a Teksavvy [West] DSL customer. Great service. And with a roommate that likes to stream all his TV, I'm glad there was an option for unlimited (which I have.)

Curious, why is there a dry loop fee? When I had Telus they never charged me that fee. This has probably been asked before, but I was wading through the new threads with price structure changes and don't remember seeing anything about this.

There has always been a dry loop fee, basically it is a fee that is charged by the ILEC for maintenance of the physical wire as you are not a customer of theirs. Normally ILEC's just drop or bundle it in with what they charge for their services.
