[SPREADSHEET of Prices & Plans of Ontario IISPs]

 
This comparison sheet is mainly intended to cover Cable TPIA Indies, but I have included incumbents Rogers' & Cogeco's latest non-bundled, non-contracted, non-promo'd residential rates and speeds, plus the plans of a few of the better known DSL Indies, to aid quick and easy comparison by shoppers.

Rogers Bumps Retail Speeds (and Prices)

 
The speeds are impressive, but there is a fine print link to the new higher prices for 3 of their 5 tiers for March 1st.

It would have been easier for them to do just ONE update to the web page rather than 2, doncha think ?
