Best non-Rogers or Bell internet in Toronto?

Finally getting my own place, so I need Interwebz to post on RFD. WHat's the best option without paying for Robellus' exorbitant prices? I hear TekSavvy is pretty decent?

Teksavvy is pretty much the standard alternative.

I've tried CIK before, wasn't bad for the price but practically zero customer service. It would go down at least once or twice a month, and the speeds were never consistent, either they were under, or way over the speeds we were paying for, so that's kind of a little trade off.

The consensus is either Teksavvy or Start.ca

Either way, some money will go back to Bell or Rogers

If you're moving to a new build, they do offer discounts for new home owners if you commit for 2 years.

the cheapest and slooowest right now would be teksavvy $24.95 for 5/1-200gb that on cable ... but if you need something better then I would look somewhere else ...

+1 TekSavvy

I would get their DSL Service 15/10 or higher depending on what you need it for. But a SmartRG modem from kijiji for like $70 & you are done. Not sure if you are going into a home or not but I would tell the Bell tech that comes out to run a dedicated line from the Demarc to where you want the modem this way you get the best possible connection since you will bypass the older cables inside the home.

The third party FTTH can't come soon enough​, maybe in 2018.

Stay rogers or bell? Their rates are just as competitive, and you don't need to deal with third party support and purchase of equipment.

If you are in a highrise, you might have other alternatives like CoExtro.
Otherwise I vote TekSavvy. TS may charge an activation fee, but at least they charge it up front, rather than through some stealth 'billing error'.
What if there were no hypothetical questions?
