What ISP do you use that it takes forever to download 6gb? I use Shaw and that would take like 2-3 hours.
Cogeco. I get roughly 13Mb down on a good day.
My god, their top tier service is worse to Shaw's basic tier and double the price. If you're in Ontario you should think about switching. If you're in Quebec, well...
I live in Niagara region. Only Rogers, Bell, and Cogeco are available, although Cogeco has a monopoly with ISPs. Bell and Rogers are expensive as hell and are slower than Cogeco.
Ya know, I've never looked at those sites till now. Is Shaw the only decent ISP in Canada or something?
Get off your high-horse (don't mean to be rude). Shaw's "High-Speed" Internet option is 7.5Mbps with a 125GB cap for 42$/mo, whereas Cogeco's "Turbo 14 (the one I have)" option is 14Mbps with an 80GB cap for 43$/mo. Shaw's BEST option is 25Mbps and 52$/mo., where Cogeco's best comparable option is 30MBps at 59$/mo. They are roughly the same (except Shaw has better bandwidth caps).
