GTA Telecom

Seems to be a relatively new Internet Access and Home Phone provider: GTA Telecom

Anybody signed up with them or heard any reports about them?

Good find. Also want to know about its services.

The more ISP the better the price due to competition, I suppose.

CarryTel and CanNet are currently competing in Ontario.

Decided to TOFTT and ordered a 75/10, unlimited, Rogers Cable-based service from them. $39.95 a month, "free" modem with $59 deposit, $15 shipping.

The order process was relatively easy. Appointment time was confirmed, modem shipped and arrived prior to installation appointment.

Tech arrived within appointment window (this morning), realized that he would have to run new cable drop to house so he left, saying that he'd have to "talk to his company". Waiting for update either from him or from GTA Telecom. I'll update here when something happens.

UPDATE: New installation here this morning by Wireconn (Rogers contractor) and service is now up and running. It's nothing close to 75/10 but is considerably better than the previous ADSL service.

Apologies for the delay in responding! The speed has never been close to 75/10.

Just did two speedtests from a wired PC with minimal wireless activity. Here are the results:

Ping/Down/Up
80/53.88/9.55
13/52.69/4.79

Interestingly, the provider is recognized as Altima Telecom so presumably GTA Telecom is a reseller of Altima.
