That is interesting. I did not know that yak used the Fibernetics 
backbone as well.

Does anyone know where the Fibernetics POPs are located in KW?

I am on Teksavvy DSL right now, but been having trouble with the 
connection and working through what my options are. (i.e., they fix it, 
or move to their cable, or move to someone else entirely)

The trouble might be related to distance, as we are apparently close to 
the edge of the 5km radius from the Bell office. Eyesurf might be an 
alternative, but it seems to kind of mystery if it would be better or not.
