Hi, looking to move from Shaw's expensive Internet. Looking at Teksavvy Extreme Cable 25 or Distributel Cable Internet 25 with unlimited bandwidth. Any opinion on who is better? I'm in Vancouver. Thanks.

I heard the 300G cable plan is actually unlimited, is that right?

Bandwidth between 2am and 8am is considered off-peak and not counted against your 300G cap

Edit: This might be DSL only...I don't see the same condition on the cable offerings.

I don't download anything between those times and still have never been charged for going over the 300GB's

Edit because of the above post, I'm referring to Cable so I guess that doesn't apply anyways

No one concerned about the Teksavvy lawsuit before signing up?

Hmmm. I don't know.

I pay for 12 Mbps:
TekSavvy Express Cable 12 300 39.95

But I get 18Mbps d/l even in peak periods, and way more in off-peak, and 300GB is never enforced (and even if it was enforced, this isn't Rogers Cable: the overage cost would be minimal).

I could switch to Cable 18 for the same price, or Express 14 for $2 less, and hope the speed stays the same?

Am I missing something?

Nope Teksavvy has done a very good job protecting their clients and the whole thing will be thrown out of court anyways

Wow. I was thinking of changing from Shaw and just looked at TekSaavy's pricing. It's good but between modem and activation I'd need to pay $190 up front to switch. That'll take a year to break even (granted with faster service). They're nuts if they think that's a worthwhile value proposition for enduring the hassle of switching.

I wish they offered cable service in our area. Thats why I can't switch. I'm sure not going to live with a DSL 6mb system and pay a premium price on my phone through them

Teksavvy is pretty good but are they gonna charge me to switch plans? The one to get seems to be the Express 14 for $37

I'm currently with Telus and paying $27/month for their TELUS Internet 6. I'm getting like 28ms ping, 3mbps download, and 0.87mbps upload. Should I upgrade to TekSavvy? Will speeds be drastically different?

What is the difference between DSL and their Cable internet services? Also, do I have to buy a modem from TekSavvy? Or can I use the one I have right now?

Apologies for the questions, I'm a noob at these things. I just want faster internet at the $30 price point.

I do upload videos to YouTube, so upload speeds matter.

I'm in BC btw.

Why is Pro (16Mbps / 300GB bandwidth, $49.95) more expensive than Cable 28 (28Mbps / 300GB bandwidth, $46.95)?

(Edit) Answer: Pro is Cogeco vs. Cable is Rogers.
thanks i had the same question too.
