ISP: Rogers
Price/Month: $71.99
Speed you pay for: 32down / 1 up
Speed you get: 30-60down / 1up
Experience: Back and forth, besides the fact that they throttle (mainly torrents) its been very reliable but its sort of expensive, I only get 150gb/mnth bandwidth cap, and the upload speed is horrible (but at least ontario, no isp provides more than 2mb up)

Will be changing to Teksavvy shortly, rogers should be called robbers, if you go over your bandwidth cap they rape you...almost literally.
Teksavvy provides for the same price, 24down/1up and you get unlimited bandwidth.

Price/month: 48 dollars
Speed you pay for: 28/1
Speed you get: 28/1 with speedboost up to 65/1
Experience with the service: Not bad considering i'm pay less than Rogers /w a 120GB cap and for 60 bucks + I get 300GB smile.gif

Surprised through Rogers, Teksavvy DSL, and Teksavvy Cable i've never gotten throttled one bit.

Teksavvy provides for the same price, 24down/1up and you get unlimited bandwidth.

Also Extreme and Express both got the upgrade to 18 megabit and 28 megabit last Saturday / Sunday so you'll have the same speed just lower price and more bandwidth.
That's if your area is not in a stop sell, has availability, and the installation goes on time and well smile.gif

ISP: Fullrate
Price/month: $75 USD
Speed you pay for: 50/10
Speed you get: 45-49 / 9.2-9.5
Experience with the service: Overall good, and no DPI is done from what I know. Service outage is common (approx. 2 times a year) but they usually place them at convenient times - 2am to 5am on weekdays. No caps either, so that's a huge bonus considering I easily push +1TB a month. VDSL2.

Virgin Broadband
Price ~£40 ($63)
Speed paid for 50/5
I get 50/5
Experience: On the whole good these days but the modem router supplied (cannot use any other) is a waste of space, worse before they unlocked modem only mode. The major problem for some (not me since I got a different server connection) is that in some areas there are huge contention issues. Daytime usage limit between 9 am and 9 pm. falls under their detrimental use clause so with no means of monitoring and no numbers to work with one gets almost no warning and can get disconnected.

ISP: CenturyLink (formerly Quest where i live)
Pay: $30/Mo
Paid Down: 1.5Megabits/second
Paid Up: 786Kilobits/second
actual down: 1.3Megabits/second
actual up: 700kilobits/second
Connection type (you should add this to the lists): Digital Subscriber Line (DSL)
Experience: CenturyLink had the audacity to implement a 150GB/mo cap for even their 1.5Mb service, despite the fact that its nearly impossible to use that much bandwidth on such a pathetic connection. Connection reliability is ok, but due to the lack of any former interest by Quest, i cannot get anything faster. The FCC Mandated that CenturyLink upgrade Quest's aging residential offerings to match their own when they bought them out, but so far Centurylink seems to have no interest in actually doing that.

Speed I get: 28 to 32Mbs down, 1.9Mbs up
Experience: I'm satisfied with the service, no problems with speeds or lag.
