if you're in the Q's, there's more options. Cogeco and Bell were the big ones. Cogeco is who we were with in the Q's, but I'm not a big fan of either, and went with a smaller ISP when we bought our place in Pembroke, Vmedia (Vmedia.ca), that I've been very happy with.

NRTC is a local ISP, not sure if the cover the Q's.
Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical, liberal minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

I've heard some horror stories of Cogeco/Bell in the Qs. The lines there are terrible and lots of shared bandwidth reducing everyone's speeds. I'll see if there's some guys at work in the Qs and who they're with.

The Qs are horrible for net no matter who you pick. NRTC runs off of bell lines and is down constantly. Bell speeds are extremely slow. Cogeco is the best choice out of the bunch, its faster than the others but not as good as off base net. The infrastructure is terrible in the Qs

Leadership is solving problems. The day soldiers stop bringing you their problems is the day you have stopped leading them. They have either lost confidence that you can help or concluded you do not care. Either case is a failure of leadership. - Colin Powell

Thanks for the info. Cogeco seemed to be the best choice comparing online as well speed wise at least.

I was with Bell in the Q's, I can tell you first hand it is awful, super slow, constant crashing. Of course Bell doesn't care if you call them.

I'm currently living in Edmonton shacks.  What are the shacks like in Pet?  I'll be posted there in Sept.
