Currently using Eastlink so my information might be biased towards them.
Aliant highspeed is a PPPoE ADSL service with a 1.5mbit/5mbit
download speed depending on the package with a dynamic IP. Aliant has
a fiber to home service in
Eastlink sells a 5mbit/10mbit download speed with a "dynamic" IP.
Your assigned a routable IP that's pretty static (had one for over a
year). There is an email filter in place so you have to use their SMTP
relay, along with a bandwidth shaping, and about 200 active connection
Another computer(parts) store in the area is robotnik
