Good, Reliable DSL in Toronto

I'd appreciate suggstions on dsl. Dealing with companies like Primus and Bell is just impossible. You spend eternity wandering around their idiotc automated systems, only to end up with some twinkie who can barely speak Engliosh and who doesn't know dsl from cable.

Good reliability and technical support are more importance than price.

Include another vote for teksavvy. Especially if you place an emphasis on customer service, one call and you're through to someone who can help you.

They may be called teksavvy but they are certainly not marketing savvy!

I've been debating making the switch from Rogers but man I just can't understand what teksavvy is offering!

These guys updated their site - still crappy. What they need to do is update their content to something that is actually useful! I don't know why I would choose premium DSL vs unlimited DSL. Unlimited sounds better but I think premium is more expensive. And business DSL gives you 6MB/800K whereas residential DSL gives you 5MB/800K? That's the only diff for $30? Same modem and probably same service.

Their website says "Our goal is to research each prospective client's needs and from there enhance, automate and provide them with a medium to buy, sell and advertise their products & services." Well this prospective client's needs are not being met and there is no enhancement :( Help the customer make a decision!

Where is the FAQ?

Can anyone help with this?

I'm not too sure with the business stuff but I do know the difference with premium and unlimited. Premium comes with a 100GB cap and uses peer1 routing with cogent as a backup. The unlimited option has no cap and only routes through cogent. Cogent ping wise is slower than peer1. So it really depends on what type of user you are, if you aren't a large downloader you might as well get premium, if you're a gamer you should get premium and if you're a heavy downloader you should get unlimited.

Thanks fatal_aroma.

I'm not a gamer or heavy downloader but then again I use Rogers :twisted:

I need fast and reliable - sounds like premium is the way to go?

Yup, as long as you don't need that large bandwidth you might as well go for the slightly faster pinging option. If you need a dsl modem there are threads in the hot deals section selling dsl modems for $20ish dollars.
