[kwlug-disc] Local ISP No Limits and No Usage Charges

Hello,

I have been using Teksavvy and have had no problems.  When I lived in
downtown Kitchener I was getting 500kB/s down and 50kB/s up.  Now I live
on the outskirts of Guelph and get 450kB/s down and 20kB/s up.  For
$4/month they allow you to set MLPPP on your connection.  This allows
one to bond multiple DSL connections.  It also bypasses Bell's
throttling that occurs between 4:30pm and 1pm -- I believe it is.  This
works even if you have just one DSL connection. Recently they started
offering cable internet access, which I would like to try.

For phone I use voip.ms and have no complaints.  I believe it's less
than a cent a minute and DIDs are $1.50/month.  Before this I used
Unlimitel which was an awful experience, to say the least.
