I don't know what you've got against Teksavvy, their adjusted prices
are _exactly_
the same as other Bell resellers, as well as Bell's own DSL prices.

If you read the ruling, Rogers and Cogeco are listed, so UBB will be coming
to them eventually as well. (Teksavvy confirmed this, saying that their cable
offering will change to, but later, DSL is getting changed first). What remains
to be seen is how they change their plans, based on how the DSL UBB
goes, and (if) how the government reevaluates the CRTC's decision.

"No one is safe" :-)  So we can talk about almost all Internet Providers in
Canada!
