I can have two ISPs on the same physical cable?
I'm with vMedia cable but wouldn't mind to switch. But want to have overlapping period...

Yes, you can run more than one ISP on cable at the same time. Many of us did this to test CarryTel while at the same time remaining to be customers with Rogers/Fido/Teksavvy etc. It allowed us to test the stability of these smaller ISPs before making the full plunge. Only negative thing is you have to pay two bills (and that's very anti-RFD ) You should be able to do the same if you want to test Cannet.

Do you mind sharing with us the type of Modem and Router you are using with CarryTel (I assume 100/10 service)? TYIA.chimaican wrote: ↑ Yes, you can run more than one ISP on cable at the same time.

Being a non techie am looking at this to as called Fido about my service and would not budge.

If your usage is so low, you should not be on the $60 plan anyways - Fido has a 30mbps 200GB plan for $50.

Do you really need 60Mb? If not you can downgrade to 30Mb/200GB for $50 as suggested by Jon Lai. If you think you need the speed you can consider to switch to cannet.

Ordered CanNet Wireless package on Tuesday through their website and I received the modem just yesterday. My scheduled installation (with a Rogers tech) is on the 30th. I don't know if I need a technician to hook it up to be honest but I'd rather pay for installation to get it working properly the first time around rather then having to deal with tech support not based in Canada.

pretty nice data, thanks for sharing. So for the 75mb plan you HAVE to rent the modem, however the sales guy that emailed me, f***ed up and stated that i can buy modem and not pay rental so i am getting it 35 dollars/month.YrocMorf wrote: ↑ I have been on Cannet 100/10/u plan since mid May in the Ottawa-Overbrook area. I have no complaints although speeds are 95%ish as you can see for yourself in the attached. Part of this "slow down" is caused by limits created by the free modem they gave me. I got my deal thru http://www.modemoutlet.com/

yeah you can get directly with them via phone or thru a authorized service provider which will give you a crappy modem for 15 bucks (shipping) unless you live in ottawa to pickup
i am buying my modem and they are shipping it out to me via canadapost. Not sure about rentals.
