Thanks OP. Just signed up for some service in Cogeco Land.

Teksavvy -> Carrytel

I can't ignore saving $20/month for 20mb/s more!

RFD!

To the packet loss guy -

1)do you have the latest firmware on your devices? Router and wireless adapter on computer?

2)have you checked your cables? Perhaps you are using an old Ethernet cable on gigabit ports? Or perhaps there is pinch or break in your co-ax. Do you have a rabbit?they chew cables.

3) are you running a antivirus?Perhaps the network security is too high, or you accidentally blocked something . Maybe you are blocking a port that is being used for new ISP.

4)are u running a VPN? I once broke my internet trying to configure a VPN. I used a different computer , and the TS rep helped reset something (when they were good). Have you tried on a different computer?

If none of these things work, perhaps just go with another ISP.

Or, maybe this ISP should fix the problem.

don t go too cheap . like n router. i myself bought a used router tp link 2600 and my wifi is 73-75 on 75 service. They recommend at least 1900 router but the extra speed is good for range issues. walls do wonders for lowering wifi
any suggestions for a specific brand or specs for a router? researching before I pull the trigger.

That is, if its their problem to fix.

Why wait? Just move on. There’s the virgin deal and the teksavvy non-non deal now.

As a reseller, Carrytel gotta wait for rogers sub-contractor. Who’ll will check everything, reset a bunch of things. Perhaps run a new line and it may work a little better ...but by not much and for not long.

Meanwhile, the packet loss guy will quietly uninstall his VPN, and everything will work as it should, and never tell us what really happened.

All the power to disco if he wants to use Bell as they're a 1st tier ISP, at least there will be less issues and if there are, it can be hopefully dealt with in a timely manner.

I however haven't had any major issues with Carrytel since last year (knock on wood), so I'm happy.

I placed an order last night with option to pick up the modem.

Is it ok to have both Rogers and Carrytel running at the same time? I plan to do what others have said, use Carrytel maybe for 2-3 days and then cancel Rogers right after.

Called Rogers to see if they can offer any discount or better plan but they could only offer me a $7 discount :rolleyes:

For the people that are to carrytel for sometime now.
I am planning on leaving rogers and going to carrytel and i have couple of questions.
What is Carrytel interconnectivity with Europe and US and if carrytel has presence to Toronto internet exchange.
It is good to have 75Mbits but if the company does not have enough bandwidth with US and Europe (mainly) then whats the point of having those 75mbits.
Also if there is any throttling

Yes you can run both services at the same time. I would recommend using the same cable to connect to the modem(s) vs a splitter so that you can compare apples to apples and not have possible skewed results do to a bad cable or lack of signal. In other words, swapping the modems.

Ha... The other "C" company locked their thread to prevent further discussion & thread rating because of the rfd community poor reviews and ratings.

I encourage everyone here to continue rating this ISP and others whether it is positive or negative. It's for the full benefit of the members.


Oh, this thread has now been moved to Ongoing Deal Discussion too....

Well their backbone is cognet which is a huge tier 1 provider in the States.

And this isn't how ISPs work ..they don't buy bandwidth in different regions around the world.

Thanks for the tip!
I live in a condo so I'm not even sure if I need a router...
