Hi everyone, like alot of you...I'm hooked up to Rogers Cable and have no conplaints with the connection or service. Lately though, I've been hearing alot about Bell Sympatico's High-Speed phone line service? ISDN is it? I've yet to compare prices or know that much about what Bell has to offer. Does anyone out there use it, or have switched from cable to high-speed and could offer me some knowledge about it.

Cable offeres much higher speeds than ISDN. ISDN also isnt that poular because in many of the available areas, people can just get cable or DSL instead.

I suspect it's DSL, ISDN is very slow and very expensive.

Bell Sympatico High-Speed it DSL. They have DSL basic (160/96kbps - downstream and upstream); stardard (1184/960kbps down and up) and Ultra (3000k down, not sure of the upstream).
Had Rogers before for 2 years, was down about 3 or 4 times for 4-8 hours at a time, lots of email problems. But faster then Bell.
More and more people in the neighborhood got it and it got slower and slower till it was running about 80k from 3pm to near midnight.
Changed to Bell and have had it about 2 years. Been down one time for about 20 minutes. Get the same speed to the internet all the time.
Where I live it's much better but depends on where you live, how and when you use it.

Stay away from ISDN, it's slow and expensive, and it isn't nearly as fast as cable.

ISDN is a Bell product, but has nothing to do with Bell Sympatico High Speed. I wouldn't want ISDN either..

Thanks eveyone for your comments, I think I'll stick with cable, we've never had any troubles in our area with it. Downloads are fast and reliable, Rogers has never done us wrong.

Good move, I would have stayed if the speed had not gone to pot, but I know a lot of people that have good speed all the time and they love it.
