Newby to MAC. Have a household of users on WiFi and direct connect. Presently on highest Rogers package. Considering moving to an Unlimited ISP like Primus, Teksavvy etc and would like opinions on ISP's offering Unlimited in the Toronto area. Also, what download speeds are good from the ISPs. Having A MAC, iPOD, 2 iPhones, Playstation, laptop and desktop all accessing at various times and together, I would need a download speed that could handle everything. Thanks very much for any and all opinions.

I don't think anyone offer an unlimited connection as fast as Rogers Ultimate. That being said, TekSavvy is very goos and still quite fast. I had primes three years ago, and they were horrible. They didn't have enough network capacity for all their users at peak time and slowdowns occurred daily.

Teksavvy is great and has unlimited. But when you think about it, Rogers is 75 Mbps download speed and 250 GBs per month - do you really think you will Go over?
What are planning to downloading? So we can better judge?

I have multiple users, three teenagers and three others over 20. Monthly, we average about 200gb. There is online gaming going on, videos, P2P streaming, online streaming of overseas TV stations and I was thinking about Netflix as well. Without Netflix we are at 200gb per month. I can forsee us going over Rogers limit in the future. That is why I am looking at unlimited.

250gb is a pretty low limit for a 75 Mbps connection. Myself I use FibreStream, unlimited download with a 20 Mbps connection, if they are an option for you I'd highly recommend them. I've heard good thing about teksavvy, and my experiences with primus were good, though they maxed out at 7mbps when I was with them.

Thanks very much for your responses. Fibrestream is not an option for me so it looks like Teksavvy is the one.
