Remind me please ... why switch from TekSavvy? Moved? UBB? Switched 
from Bell phone?

They (actually, both) seem well regarded here. Curious, as I hope to 
switch off Rogers whenever I get around to moving, so I try to keep my 
ear to the ground with respect to ISPs. I'm too far from the C.O., in 
the mean time, though.

I sent a couple questions off to TekSavvy not long ago, based on 
comments in this thread. AFAICT - they'd be ~$10/month cheaper than 
Rogers, but ~$100 hit upon signup (admin fee + modem purchase).

1. If you currently have TV cable service through Rogers, adding cable 
internet service through us will not affect it in anyway.
2. Currently we are subject to Rogers traffic shaping over their 
network. This applies to the network over all to avoid congestion. 
Saying that we are not aware of any specific traffic throttling such 
as torrents or P2P file sharing software at this time. We also do not 
block any ports for our service, even though Rogers blocks certain 
ports on their network.
