Unlimited usage high speed internet in Ontario?

Does this exist anymore? I just got dinged by Cogeco for being significantly over my usage cap. I know that Bell and Rogers are being dog ****ers about their internet practices. Canada has the worst internet in the developed world.

TekSavvy offers "only" 200GB per month on their basic DSL plan at $30/month. You'll have to pay another $10/month for unlimited.

That said, if the CRTC allows the big boys (Hell and Robbers et al) to institute usage-based pricing in the coming year then we'll all pay more bandwidth above 30GB or 60GB, including from the independents like TekSavvy.

At $18.95 month prepaid for a year $227.40 plus taxes,
Acanac offers unlimited up to 5Mb speeds for residential.
We also have a fast fiber optic network available with
online pc and storage, ssh tunnel, emails, etc.

Not to bring up their "pyramid scheme" or anything, but I believe ACN offers unlimited up/download. A friend of mine has it, and says they don't throttle like Bell does (here in Montreal). Only reason we didn't switch is cause I have a constant 1mbps download speed on Videotron Extreme High-Speed, but we have a shared 100gb up/download, which my household has gone over a few times... Might want to take the speed cut for unlimited internet.

This ISP is based in Durham Region but services all of Southern Ontario.

No cap, plus he also offers VOIP and other services.

$39.99/month for DSL.

time periods. The monthly term is $39.95

I am with Velcom and their unlimited plan is $34.95 per month; and $29.99 for 200G/month plan. So far I am quite satsify with their service.

Unlimited usage
When you say "unlimited" what do you mean in practice? What is Cogeco's limit? Would 200GB be enough? (BTW TekSavvy's 200GB is averaged over two months. If you happen to go over in one month you don't get automatically charged for it.)

You may not want to bring it up but the federal government sure does (or did.)

I was down for almost 2 months
I kept telling them to send a new modem
they finally did after 2 months
which fixed the problem
then offered 20 days extension take it or leave it
if you want to call support
its a least a 1 hour queue if your lucky
and you'll need to do that at least half a dozen times
to get any thing resolved :mad:
