Re: Third Party ISPs in Vancouver area?

Nucleus looks like an interesting alternative, especially if you are in Alberta. The good thing about TekSavvy is you have the ear of the CEO, Marc, here on DSLR. I think it speaks volumes that he is being so transparent right now about the copyright trolls.

Is Teksavvy and Light Speed the only third party offering cable in greater Vancouver?

I signed up with Netflix and realized that DSL is not going to be competitive at the speeds I want, especially with dry loop.

Distributel offers cable. Technically, Nucleus would be the fastest third-party broadband at 50Mb, through DSL if your address supported 25Mb with Telus. All the TPIA providers max out at 25Mb.

I would use teksavvy dsl. I pay 47$ month for 25meg.




The speed and ping are consistent 24/7

Cable speed and pings are inconstant.

How about dry loop charges? Any congestion in the evenings?
