Estimating from the the amount of data that you say occurs every week, making copies of the files directly from the server using NAS hard drives in raid 6 or 10 in a mini server enclosure would be the fastest and safest way to retrieve your files. Cost of which is between $2000-$3000 dollars, but is a permanent solution that should last you between 3-5 years easily. The files would be instantly copied onto your drives and you just take them home to work on it.
You obviously do not have a PhD ... he's paying telus so he can go home to UPLOAD the large files and then go to university to download them again !!! ....

The Rogers deal is location based. If you are not in the right location you don't get that offer. Not everyone lives in southern Ontario.

You clearly need to graduate from elementary school cause the same logic applies. Its a hard drive. If i suggest he take the hard drives home why wouldn't he be able to bring the hard drives back. It is implied, but I guess for people like you, you really got to spell it out. Guess you just enjoy elementary school that much huh, love that spelling.

I did not say that - those are your words, not mine, and also an incorrect assumption. You do know that individuals or businesses who need down-time redundancy will have both, right? I have also worked for companies that had Telus.

Rather hypocritical of you to say there was no point in me posting when the sole purpose of your post was to put words in my mouth and then jump to false conclusions based on your own words. Why bother?

Also there is very little to compare beyond bandwidth per dollar - up-time and advertised speeds for both providers are not an issue 99% of the time for the average user. They copy each other's prices and promotions. You find the best deal and go for it - in fact lots of people switch between the two every year or so chasing promos.

To call you out on your pointless one-sided post
