Those promotional rates are ridiculously good. The obvious questions being:

1) Will there be an option to buy a VDSL modem?

2) Are promotional rates cancelled in case a subscriber moves?

So dry loop is now waived, correct? Let's say I'm on 25/10 75gb cap (36.99$) until dec 2013 when january 2014 swings around will the promotion end? or once you're on the promo rate it will stay at this price and not go up?

Dry loop install fee is waived. Monthly dry loop fee is not (unless you have TekTalk).

Bands depend on where you live, if you live in down town you'll be in band A, I found it strange how TSI has to charge people monthly for dry loop when velcom and eBox don't? I don't understand that. Are they eating the cost of the band or doing some under the table business that we don't know about?

That depends on where you live (Bell decides what band you're in), I'm not sure how you'd look it up.

Distributel..15/1 unlimited is 47.95 compared to teksavvy promos 49.99 for unlimited. Dry loop install fees are waived and if you sign up now the monthly fee of 6 dollars is waived. How is tek's a better deal? are you paying the premium for teksavvy's customer service?

Band A is for downtown Toronto/Montreal. Most people are on Band B or higher.

Ah, not so much for everyone. We are leaving an area where we have DSL and going to one where there is nothing but Cogeco. Major $$ increase for us.

That makes teksavvy's prices for 15/1 and lower way more expensive thatn distributel? I do not understand how that is generous? Am i missing something?

Well I don't know if distributel has updated their prices yet. They look the same as they we're before. So maybe they'll be changing them soon.

Many people have cancelled POTS and use cell phone only and/or VoIP. Cable doesn't have dry internet fees either, Rogers got rid of them more than 10 years ago. I am still with Bell because they waive dryloop fees for the own customers. Velcom 7000/1000 is on my radar now because they offer better upload for less than Start cable 6000/256 (unless this changes, they haven't posted their new rates yet).

WRONG. The most recent decision by the CRTC basically forced TPIAs to start focusing on DSL again because it is cheaper (so bigger profit margins), despite the age of the technology...TSI was trying to move away from DSL (and has many more cable subscribers) but things have now changed thanks to the CRTC....

Now, innovation on the cable front will slowdown and we all suffer....Obviously the CRTC has no idea what they've done because they don't understand the technology....

In the mean time, enjoy the cheap DSL I guess, but it comes at a price...
