    Ok guys .. Rogers ultra lite is fu*king around with me when im at home .. (exclude network connection speeds at work)... i get really crap speeds and i heard this is because they throttle bittorrent traffic. I'm thinking of getting a new isp that doesnt throttle bittorrent traffic and doesnt either in the future for a good price..since i dont spend much time home, therefore i use my workplace connection, which is pretty fast as you can see in my signature. i still need a reliable connection at home as well....regardless ...and Rogers just isnt kicking it ...

    im looking for these qualities:

    -unlimited downloading ..no capping
    -At least 100 kB/s download speeds
    -NO THROTTLING
    -Reasonable price .. i would say around 30 Bucks CAD a month (canadian dollors ...)
    -Good customer service .. well "OK" customer service ...


    Any ideas guys ? thinking of Bell Sympatico .. but rumours have it they will throttle in the future ...and i think they're pretty expensive ...

    Any help or comments or suggestions are more than welcome ..Thanks

    When i lived in Canada, I was a project manager at Bell Canada on Bay St., and I have to say Rogers are fucken assholes

    They have the possibility to reach 300Mbit speeds on the cable line, i am not joking around, me and my team, researched them, and tested the ISP as much as we can.

    Also for the price your asking you wont find anything like that

    Your best choice would be to go with Bell, and sign up for a light DSL plan and wait for Fiber to come to your area or at least increase your monthly allowance to at least 55 CAD.

    Another option would be to get a proxy or VPN or Server or VPS and bypass the throttling by FTP @ your internet plans top speed depending on the location of the server and routing.

    i agree with the 300 mbit speeds.. even when im using rogers ultra lit now at home .. when i download from rapidshare .. i see speeds like 600 kB/s .. then it easily drops back to like 32kB/s ....

    thing is rumours have it that bell will be throttling speeds in the future

    Bell has really one of the worst customer service
    Whenever I have a problem I have to fix it myself as their support is literally zero
    Bell never throttles the bandwidth and if you fight with the cust support long enough they wont tap your bandwidth
