For the purposes of this discussion, let's assume that in a few months Bell will have filed tariffs for higher speeds that TSI can get their hands on, and TSI will have begun transitioning to ATPIA service and its associated higher speeds.
Given TSI's ongoing issues with Bell and balancing AGAS vs. Rogers and its seemingly endless evening node congestion issues, which would you choose (let's keep the discussion to 50/10 services or lower speeds, which are the bulk of the customer base for all providers):
a) A faster connection upload/download (cable) at the expense of stability (ie. nightly congestion until Rogers either does neighbourhood node splits, or backhaul upgrades)?
b) A more stable but slower upload/download (DSL) and a mandatory modem rental? Would your opinion change if you could own your own modem?
c) How much price differential between nearly alike speeds would it take to make you choose DSL vs. cable or vice versa?
d) How much speed differential between DSL & cable - for the same money - would it take for you to choose one vs. the other?
rogers is known to be even more evil at throttles and port blocking and should they ever get rights to do it on tsi they would.
No static ips to run your own services
don't like renting a modem if i dont have too...
cable pricing is expensive
all i see in the threads of tsi is a TON of cable issues. Don't sound all that stable to me.
at best id try an upgrade maybe soon once i get a new modem
im told by another isp i could have got 14 megabit on this line so i might try a 10 megabit later on....go unlimited as always i hate idea of caps and overages
less to worry about
think this way if you have kids what better way to allow them to learn tech te n to get your own webserver up and teach them all kinds a neat stuff they can do. By time they get to actual school for it they would be far far ahead and be very smart cookies EVEN if they do not get into tech its then somehting they know of and have skill with.
you cant get that via cable anywhere.....
and you only get it via isps that can offer static ips, via dsl. THE big boys don't want you to know how to do stuff....they want dumb peons that buy into there drivel and content.
AWFUL funny if i and a few good men got hard core into making our own content and cause were nto getitng a trillion a year in wages can compete big time....then you can even look at streaming via say some of those ovh servers with unlimited packages and make a buck...and suddenly if you get enough content you goto MARC with the idea and TSI people get a few IPTV offerings no one else can get and MARC might be able to trade to get more channels thus drive his costs down....
SEE i took business administration with major in information systems for a reason....it makes little sense to get a crippled cable account....unless all your requiring is to use it as a IPTV ergo a 25/7 account will do for HD. AND when h265 starts roling around things will get mroe fun as all the bandwidth will be needed is halved.
