Tech support issues and the earthquake in Toronto

In Uncategorized on June 23, 2010 by petrem66

It seems to me that today was a bad day. I was in the middle of implementing some code when there was this tremor of 5.5 on the Richter scale here in Toronto. This is not an unique event here since a few weeks back we got shaken again by a smaller earth quake, but it is unusual for this part of the world since we are located quite far from the edge of this continental plate.
The ADSL Business Internet service from Bell is very far from being fast as posted on their site. For the price of Fibe 25 ($56.9 – 25Mbps for download) I am getting a service with fluctuating speed, which goes down to below 1 Mbps for downloads (0.1 Mbps for uploads) during business hours, and climb up to maybe 5 Mbps during evenings and nights. I’ve called them a few times to try to obtain at least a stable 5Mbps for downloads unsuccessfully though. I am shopping around for a better ISP in town.
