so, in a few weeks im going to be moving back to ottawa for my second year of uni and were looking at internet prices/packages for our house

im living with 3 other ppl (4 total) and me and one other guy are both gamers and all 4 of us watch a shit load of tv/movies over the internet. our house is also located really close to the school

now ive been looking between cable and dsl and i figured cable would be the best because of speeds, but im hearing stuff about congestion effecting cable a lot more then dsl, and since we are going to be right by the university and in a populated area (ottawa after all) will cable speeds be greatly reduced?

if anyone can give advice with what internet provider to go with that would be amazing cause im pretty stuck. our only requirements are unlimited bandwidth and i would assume around 15mbits/s (tho if anyone has more experience with faster/slower speeds with multi-users that would be welcomed knowledge)

currently im thinking about deveca co cable internet extreme pro (http://www.deveca.com/ontario-cable.html) basically unlimited with 15mbits at 55$ a month. price wise i dont think we want to go any higher then 60 a month.

thanks

why need TV if you can watch porn on the internet?


...what? How is this even relevant?

I would say choose cable over dsl. I'm going to a university that is in a pretty populated city as well and cable is still much faster than dsl.

I read your post and said to myself: Just another addbot.
Then I noticed you were a mod and went
Then I saw your user title. How do you do that? Html? Or can only mods have these?

I'd go for cable. I have cable internet and TV bundle and it's great.

I don't know anything other than my cable is much faster than my friends DSL. And I know someone else that has DSL and it's also slow as ****.

Either cable is faster, or people are getting shitty services.
