Been doing speedtests & I'm only getting ~3.5M upload speed instead of 10. Will this improve in the coming days/weeks?

hey guys, two questions!

I currently have the 50/10 CarryTel connection which I'm pretty happy with, but since I have to move, I'm looking at my options now.
1) Cancel and make a new connection at my new place; pay for installation again, sell old modem in kijiji.
2) Just move my connection, use existing modem, and pay for moving fees which are the same as installation fees.

the main difference seems to be whether i can sell the modem for any amount.

Also, what do you guys think of their 75/10 cable connection? need another connection for my moms place, and am wondering whether i should get her the fibre50/10 like i had or the 75/10 cable.

any input would be appreciated!

The fiber is less prone to slowdowns at pick time and usually has less latency. It counts if you game or use VoIP, especially with providers who oversubscribe customers on limited leased bandwidth.

My internet has been down for about 6 hours now, I'm not sure if it's Carrytel or Bell's network. Anyone facing any issues after the storm?

I noticed that CarryTel uses Google DNS servers for their customers. I don't want to use Google DNS servers.

I tried to put in other static DNS servers on my router (CT modem in bridge mode). But no matter which DNS servers I put in, I'm not able to resolve any hosts. Seems they block this? Once I remove the static DNS entries, the connection defaults to CarryTel's google DNS servers and resolutions work again.

Anyone run into this?

The one Carrytel sells has WiFi, but it is always better to use your own wifi router.

Could you explain why? And I'm guessing you're referring to plug a hard line from the modem to your own router?

Usually a modem + a WiFi router perform much better than a 2-in-1 modem/wifi router when they have the same cost.

I'm going to be moving soon and called Carrytel and they said that the new address doesn't support Carrytel's service and that it's likely because the place is using Bells' newer fiber internet technology. I thought that this service is already being called "fiber" internet so it should work and is it normal that FTTN/FTTH won't work in newer homes? Very frustrated that I can't take my service with me, and the person on the line also said that he doesn't think cable would work either, but I would need to contact Rogers to see if the service would work first....

How's Carrytel's jitter and latency performed so far?

A friend of mine told me he is getting 60ms in his house, pretty bad but want to double check with RFD.

Anyone getting the advertised speeds on Carrytel FTTN in Quebec. How are the speeds at night? Those on FTTN in Ontario, feedback would be helpful too. Not for myself but asking for a family member.
