This was averaged across customers, so any ISP with lots of "internet lite"
type subscribers will come out low. I think a lot of Teksavvy customers are
people willing to pay for a quality connection, so that would bump up their
average. Also, recording Bell's fiber customers in it's own category is a
little unfair in this respect. On my Acanac cable connection, I never see
my downlink drop to even double the average rates reported there (though, I
don't have an easy way to check what Netflix is using).
