Re: TorIX Upgrade i understand that, and usually providers will give preference to public/private peers to cut transit costs too so my concern is that they're avoiding TorIX for performance reasons.
I've talked to OVH network group a bit the last few months and managed to get TSI and OVH to setup a private peer at TorIX to get around bad performance through the public peer. They would likely be open setting up a private peer too with Start. If rocca's interested, he can reach their network group by contacting email@example.com.
Uhh, trace from teksavvy to OVH, it goes through torix over public peering.

shaded, if start has a fairly little used 10gbit torix link and OVH has a half-used 20gbit (total) link, then you will pretty much be guaranteed a good link. In this case, performance is not the reason Bell is preferred. Also, this is on OVH's end, though you've also mentioned this.
rocca, I am currently with TekSavvy. If I switch to Start, do I incur the setup fee?
said by k3d3:No if you have an active cable internet connection at the same address and just transferring it to us then there is no installation fee applicable.
If I switch to Start, do I incur the setup fee?
