Canadian DSL customers are living with the illusion of choice when it comes to their ability to choose the modem they use to connect them to the internet. Bell currently offers exclusively the Bell Home Hub 1000 and 2000 modem/router devices as options for their customers. Similarly, the Bell re-seller Teksavvy offers a selection of Bell approved modems/router combo devices with much the same functionality.
These modem/router combos provide users with everything they would need to connect to the internet, and share that connection to devices throughout their house.
In a house with 4 highly tech savvy (no pun intended) students, one tends to use a lot of bandwidth. A LOT.
Having had good experience with Teksavvy at home (and the fact the they have unlimited plans) meant the logical choice was to go with the Teksavvy Cable 28 plan, which offers 28Mb/s download and 1Mb/s upload. This plan costs $61.95/month, which comes to exactly $70 a month with tax included.
