Chomping at the bit for 150/10

Well I am now chomping at the bit for Teksavvy to get its Atpia POI up and running for oshawa, the 300 gig 150/10 Tier seems quite appetizing to me at the moment 85 bucks with a 6 hour window is Yum, 6 hours of 20 megs /second or something close to it.. MMM yumm!

TSI won't be going to aggregated POI model for a while, you might want to look at what Start can offer in the next few days with their new pricing and 150/10 package as well. rocca has indicated they will be offering off-peak usage too.

Champ

Nitpick: "Champing" is the original correct usage, but "chomping" has become more popular since nobody knows what "champing" means.

Anyways, what are you going to do with your 150 Mbps down? I also wonder how well neighbourhoods are going to handle this. Remember, it's not just TSI that has congestion issues. Rogers etc. does too, albeit at a lesser extent, although that may increase soon with a rush of new cable subscribers getting cheap internet access at high bitrates with unlimited data usage (both on TSI and Rogers etc.).

Technically Oshawa doesn't have TSI Cable service yet AFAIK. Whitby doesn't even have full service. Only certain parts of it are serviced by the Salem (Ajax) POI.

There is hope that Oshawa is one of the 13 that will be lit up first when the actual APOI link goes live on March 22nd.

CIK Telecom offers the Same plan for $99 Unlimited. Teksavvy offers it for $219.

I don't see any point in purchasing the same plan for $10 cheaper with a 300Gb cap.

There must be a reason why tekksavvy is so expensive or why others are 50% cheaper.

well Ciktel seems to be oversold or poorly managed with congestion at peak on a regular basis. Start does seem to be the better deal tho for 150/10 with the 100GB extra cap and $10 cheaper (on top of no moving fees).

TSI has much better support than Ciktel as well as better network performance,

Gotta second that jmck. I wouldn't go with Ciktel either. It's consistently bogged down every night until it's at dial up speed.
