When it comes to Isp’sÂ I have very particular preference just like Â how manyÂ cream and sugar’sÂ I take inÂ Â my morning coffee(s.) Maybe a lot of us don’t.Â Maybe I’m just a geek, but thats a whole other blog post so I’llÂ (try to) keep on topic.
Surely I can’t measure ‘bang’ by dollar amount alone. I need to take into consideration many factors such as price, speed, reliability and customer service. How do I measure this if Ive only had experience with certain ISP’s? I can’t!
Im going to lay down theÂ numbers from some of the magor ISP’s and hope you can fill me in on the reliability and customer service part.
I use Odynet, been with them since 2002, were like familia. Well not not really, but hey a girl can have dreams can’t she?Â Â Moving on….
Odynet runs me 34.95 a month. Modem rental free, 5 emails, 800k speed and 100gig of usage.
Bell runs 47.95 a month. 2.00 modem rental, up to 700k speed, doesn’t show usage limit on main page. Not sure if its a ”contract” or month to month.
Rogers runs 44.95 a month, 3.00 modem rental, 60gig limit,up toÂ 700k speed, 9 emails.
Ok so theres mine and the two big wigs. Doesn’t tell me much other then im cheaper.Â I have had my share of diffuculties withÂ Bell since there call centers have been moving overseas.Â Rogers is not available in the middle of nowhere that I call home sweet home. Id love to hear about them too though! Â So this brings me to is a smaller company the better option? Theres literally thousands out there.Â
Another thing that’s got me is this whole bundling services thing. Is it all contracts? Do you save in the end? Is it worth it? I am a girl who needs choice, signing up with all one company is playing into the man too much for my comfort. Whois the man? No clue but it sounded good. Sounds like there bundling all my hard earned cash into their money clips.
What’s your best deal that you have your ISP, and most importantly are you in a happy relationship with them?
