I'm still happy that I switched from Bell DSL to TekSavvy Cable over a year
ago.  On Bell I was getting unlimited usage (it was an old grandfathered
account), but top speed down was 1.5 meg, if the wind was blowing the right
way.

For the same money (~$70) TekSavvy is giving me 18 down/1 up unlimited.
 What a difference!
