this is reality of being a tpia client.
The reality of being a client of an independent ISP is... we pay much less for substantially more internet, aren't stolen from or otherwise defrauded of our money, aren't lied to constantly, don't have prices go up every 3-6 months, and we get to deal with real human beings right in the area we live in that value our business.
There are several remedies available to the OP that do not require a deal with the devil.
I've picked on Cogeco long enough. Who's next? Any volunteers?
