OK, now I'm convinced that my Bell DSL connection sucks big time...I've done the test twice. OK Fabio, I think I'm going to switch to Videotron.

I'm telling you Dave there's no comparison. Make the move you won't regret it.

Moncal, is the internet speed test not working for you? What type of connection do you have?

You guys might also be interested in another site:

http://www.broadbandreports.com

 

It's very interesting...you can find out the price range of different ISP's, who offers good service, who doesn't, read reviews from different users and participate in the forum.

 

It's a great resource...I had problems with Bell Sympatico's DNS servers for a few months, some websites just didn't want to resolve (at different times during the day). Thru their forum, I was able to find new DNS server addresses that Bell would make you go through hoops to get.

Out in the country on a dial-up, closest switching station in the nearest town is 8 miles away, no cable and no DSL available, although Ma Bell keeps promising (ha!!) The only way to speed things up is to go to microwave dish, and that's way beyond my pocketbook. Maybe I should investigate another ISP - Sympatico hasn't been all that great the last couple of months :confused:

Don't worry Liz, Sympatico sucks big time even in the city! (Montreal) I've got Basic DSL service.

 

After being a Bell High Speed subscriber for years, I moved into another area (which is very populated, not the outskirts at all - Pointe aux Trembles / R.D.P. area) and they decided to downgrade me to Basic DSL without really telling me. Now I'm ticked and I want to switch to Videotron...we'll see :frown:

PS. I must say though, I almost forgot that people still use dial up connections....I could never go back!

Interesting link Comdial - thanks! (Someone rep him pls - I can't as I've done too recently apparently).

 

I have a wireless ethernet signal that reaches my house via a microwave wireless antennae - beats the heck out of dial-up and at $40 p/m it's more economical than what the phone company wants for DSL here which is basically double.

 

Here's the stats it gave, but it will vary based on the signal I'm pulling at any given moment:

 

Communications 359.2 kilobits per second

Storage 43.8 kilobytes per second

OK, I've made the switch to Videotron.

 

I still have a big beef with Bell Canada. They still charged me one extra month because I didn't give them 30 day advance notice that I was closing the account. So I paid for a whole month of internet service that I didn't use one bit. I don't think I'll ever switch to Bell ever again... I even switched my phone lines to Videotron too.

 

I did the internet test over again, and the results are MUCH better!

Okay, I decided to re-run my connection through Comdial's reference link too. I still have the same service, but they've been going through the process of upgrading recently and I wanted to see how much difference, if any, there is. Here's the current results, which is a little more than 4 times the efficiency it was last I checked:

 

Communications 1.6 megabits per second

Storage 196.5 kilobytes per second

1MB file download 5.2 seconds

Subjective rating Great

 

They've also given my a larger receiver with a better gain, but I've not yet installed it. I don't now that it will increase speed so much as merely give me a better signal with better consistency.

I think part of it is I'm in the back yard at the moment on my 802.11 connection. I'll have to try it again when I'm on a wired PC.
