Teksavvy -> Carrytel
I can't ignore saving $20/month for 20mb/s more!

Or, maybe this ISP should fix the problem.soulrebell wrote: ↑Apr 17th, 2018 10:09 amTo 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.

Asus RT-AC1900P is a great router with excellent range and fast CPU.

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.

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.sandini_power wrote: ↑Apr 18th, 2018 8:37 amI 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

Well their backbone is cognet which is a huge tier 1 provider in the States.george72 wrote: ↑Apr 18th, 2018 9:04 amFor 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
