My friend told me that the ADSL (same as with Bell Sympatico) speed at Vancouvor is as high as 3 M, and it is expected to reach 8 M in a very near future. However, the speed you get is affected by the distance from your home to the server.
I just installed Rogers@home high speed internet connection. Eglington did that for me. He did the test. hehe. It is good. very fast.
