Thats a pretty good speed there sapper - I may try a month on the package you are on(I am on the one lower) and see what i get out of it

It's a strange world...and the very reason I moved from Aliant. It was awful what they were delivering to my place.

I am getting a discounted rate at the moment....I don't bundle so I can retain a little bit of the initiative...if I feel the need to tell them to poke it. I have my own Rogers modem...bought on Ebay...for 10 bucks.

The speed you are on is fine, I wanted more bandwidth not more speed.

Is Aliant really unlimited at least for now (withing reasonable limits)...?

I ended up with:
Details for January 05, 2011 - February 04, 2011
Usage to date: 96.05 GB
Additional Use Charges: $1.50


Your current bill (less cell phones)....


Internet: 47.99
Home Phone: 24.67
Your current bill (before taxes): $72.66
HST: 9.44
Total: $82.10

Savings - You saved $17.95 on your Rogers services.

Right now I am on a completely free deal from Rogers from when I bought the house last May - Free TV - phone and internet for a year so I cant complain too much

I was on Aliant in my last house and found it a hell of a lot faster and no cap limits ( I only moved 300 yards so I expect it too be the same in this house )

As I say , I may upgrade to the package you have for the last month and see if its any better - I do a hell of a lot of streaming and downloading so I really could do with the extra speed

Not at all .... it's a "cash grab" across the entire internet packages, with harsh costs, especially here in our part of Canada. The biggest issue being, the penalty for going over the Caps ($2 for High Speed Lite/Standars - and $1 for Extreme, Warp, Nitro I believe?)

People say it's pushing people to move up to the next package, or it's simply moving towards "pay as you go" .... either way, it's not winning awards with the Canadian Public.

All the best.

Its the smaller providers who buy bandwidth from the larger players and provide unklimited packages who are under threat. The CRTC ruling means that Bell, Shaw. Etc can get away with not selling the bandwidth

... in a way, that is correct.

You said "unlimited packages" ... and didn't draw attention to smaller providers, like Teksavvy etc.

Regardless, it's going to hurt many groups of people, not just the "bandwidth hogs" ... but as we know, discussions are still in progress, so we will see how it all shakes out come 1st March.

All the best.

Good news - I've got BBC iPlayer working in the US (recorded programmes only, not live, but that's OK with me).

No more feeling annoyed that I've paid my licence to fund the BBC, but am not able to watch the programmes...

I followed the instructions at http://www.stabeler.com/blog/533/How...orking_abroad/ and it worked first time. Easy peasy.

I just had a brief look at those instructions.

They may not be hugely complicated but
