    I’d take more realistic and generous data allowances with reasonable pricing ANY DAY over having the best speeds.

      I have a 10gb plan and I’m ecstatic to only be paying $80 a month. And that’s unlimited Canada wide airtime too

      Say hi to everyone else in Saskatchewan for me.

      I doubt many people remember but SaskTel had ADSL in late 1995. First in North America.

      Switching from a 56k modem it was a real eye opener.

      Have the $65 10GB+2GB Bonus data plan from Saskatchewan here in BC, with BC address. Thanks Bell.

      Oh yeah, our Source store gave me the S8+ @ $0 for the two year agreement. Shop around and know your carriers and you can do better than what is advertised.

      I have the SK Koodo $48 5GB plan here in AB w/ my AB number. Big improvement over my olf Bell plan of $86 for 2.5GB!

      Any country no but most of them yes lol.

    And our carriers make more money per user (ARPU) then any other country in the world. Much more.

    Yay, let’s drink Canadian syrup to celebrate?

    But how much does one really need? 25mbps likely suits everyone just fine

    • John Lofwire

      agreed i usually ask my client to turn off LTE on the device its increase battery life and make reception even better and average speed is 20 to 40 mb on it.

    It’s so fast because it’s so expensive everyone is afraid to use it just avoid overages

  • Robert Martin

    Videotron offers 940Mbps down an 50Mbps up for 145$

    • Roger

      Is that actual speed?

    • Robert Martin

      to date every time I check the speed, mine is not that high, they do what they say. From their server to you yes. It’s a cable network not grandma Bell

    • John Lofwire

      I have 120 mb down and 20 mb up on videotron cable and i never get under thats in any speed test so as much as videotron wireless network is a joke the landline they have are very solid.

    • expunisher

      Exactly I have 250 with rogers but could get gigabit for $108, albeit the regular price is like $145. My friend has the gigabit and gets around 800 wired and 400 wireless (but I think that’s bc of his wireless card)

  • Surtock

    you get what you pay for

  • delumen

    What is the point of fast internet if you can’t even use data?

    • Troublemaker

      Propaganda dude, thats the point lol

    It’s probably a bs study. Also, when it comes to representing your country well, being number 1 in North America isn’t impressive.
