    Shaw Cable is offering 5, 10, and 25mbps here!

    5= $40/month
    10=$55/month
    25=$99/month

    All prices are in Canadian dollars.

    Seems to me I'm one of the slow ones with 1.5 down. An option of over 6mbps down is non-existent where I live due to Telephone & Cable monopolies.

    What company are you using? I'm trying to convince my dad to buy DSL/cable as I'm currently on dreadful dial-up...

    BellSouth FastAccess DSL (which I think is now AT&T). Adelphia (which I think is now Comcast) didn't have reliable-enough high-speed cable, and at the time I had both, DSL was faster and more reliable for less money.

    The only reason I'm using the 7mb/sec connection is because of the unlimited download/upload. Not that I download much, but for my work I upload a lot more then the 1.5 limit me to

    Anyone who think a computer is sexy need to #$? and fast

    For our house, 1.5mbps isn't enough. We need at least 8mbps to keep me happy. For us, it's a choice of either 8mbps ADSL or 24mbps ADSL2+ (which you're only likely to get a quarter of, if that). The problem here is the upload speed and the amount of data you're given. We're currently on 25GB+50GB (with the 50GB only accessible between 12AM-8AM) for $95.

    But I'm on 30mb business class cable. No caps. It's pretty nice.
