So I have a cable plan with Cannet, 100/10 and never get more than 2-3 mbs upload with or without my router. Will this plan actually guarantee upload speed of 10mb/s?
It's the "up to" that get me.

Which modem is better? SmartRG SR505N or TP-Link TD-W9970. I can get one around 100$ from Amazon.

Too many variables involved such as:
- sites you are downloading/uploading from/to
- line quality
- distance from the cable hub
- router (out of the question in your particular situation)
- NIC (both wired or wireless)
- other interferences

It is just like gas mileage for car which is only for optimal controlled conditions

Don't know about SmartRG SR505N, but my TD-W9970 never let me down since day one (June 2016).

Hi there,

To check for availability we would need your full address. The fastest way is to call in and give our rep your address so he can check immediately if it is available.

Kind regards,

Bell (the actual internet provider in this case) only guarantees the download speed. I called them once due to an issue with my line and they reduced my upload speed from 7mbps to 2mbps. Had to keep escalating the issue in order for them to actually fix the issue and increase my upload speed back to 7

Anyone have an opinion on their cable service? I can't get this deal but their cable pricing blows Start.ca away, especially with the extra $10 off code though I'm not sure of the fine print for that.

Anyone else with reviews of this service? Looking to switch frmo Rogers which is charging an arm and a leg now with another $8 increase in March. Is it worth it to buy a modem or just rent?

wondering as well on the level of service, they are offering cable 150 for 49.98, that will only get you cable 40 at start.ca, think start will try and match it?

If you're not in a condo or apartment and can't get the Rogers Ignite deal this may be your best bet, at least that's what I'm thinking.
They said on the phone the modem costs 200 bucks though, that's a lot to fork over right away.

I'm not sure why people are giving a thumbs down on this offer. Not everyone is fortunate enough to can get on the Rogers 500u / 1GB for a cheap price.

Same promotion they have been running for awhile now. They just keep renaming it.
