> Story also claims that it's the same as Sympatico suc... sorry again, customers have been paying, and that it's lower than US cable customers pay. Right. But US cable customers get twice the bandwidth (I've seen it), and their cable company techies generally know how to configure DHCP and mail servers too. (saw that too!)
Actually -- that's generally not true.
Bandwidth is cheap in Canada.
Many US based DSL providers charge about USD$60-80 for a 128kbit connection.
Support with any of the big companies is not usually much better.
Of course, there are a few great deals here and there (we have that
too with some local providers), but overall I think we're much better
off. The grass is always greener...
