It would help if you could tell us more about requirements. Is it "unlimited"? Lots of downloads, just emails, running any server, game?

Also, for a first post, writing all those expletives doesn't give a good impression... Other than this welcome to Geekzone too!

ihug's Broadband 3 plan is pretty good....20GB/month for $50, otherwise there is Orcon's Zeroshock plan which is also 20GB/month for $50....between them, i would rate ihug much higher...




Do whatever you want to do man.

Mind you with this plan you are limited to 24 hours of 64 Kbps speeds if you download more than 2GB on a single day, or if you use more than 20 GB then the rest of the month will be at 64 Kbps...

mikey,

When you move, the ISP can only offer you plans they can currently provision. If you are on an older plan, then most often the ISP's can keep you on the plan while on the same number, but when moving cannot regenerate the plans in their own systems.

I did see one isp offering 256 uncapped off of one of the comparison sites a couple of months back, think it was through netguide I found it. But it was a little pricey. (Which you will have to pay more now)

Basically you're stuck with finding either a plan that matches what you want, or changing to someone that can offer you what you want.

i realise that...but for the price, ihug and orcon are prob the best ISP to go with for $50/month....20GB is quite a bit unless he/she is a heavy p2p customer....

XNet will charge you per MB (not GB) of actual data used.  20GB will cost $20.  Add to that $27 for a 256/128k connection or $34 for FS/128k and you still pay around $50 (or less, depending on how much you actually use) and is never crippled.  If you go over your cap, you can easily increase you cap on-line or simply continue at 64k for the rest of the month.
