All, I'm in the process of relocating to the greater HRM area [keep your
fingers crossed that the current offer on my house goes through]. I
have question for the group regarding internet service in HRM. This may
be more of a philosophical question than practical, but I'll ask
What is the best internet service provider in the HRM area in respect to
the following ::
- general service
- connectivity [ie, do they block specific ports deliberately]
Just as a comparison.. in Dallas, we have AT&T/SouthwesternBell aDSL
running at 3.0Mbps up/512kbps down for ~$32.00 US a month.
Now, in some areas, we have fibre to the premises running at ~15Mbps for
$40 US a month [residential service]... Just depends on whether they've
already removed the `last copper mile` in your neighborhood.
I assume you'll get better deals if you go with a television/phone/etc
package. I plan on getting at least cable/or satellite equivalent.
I've seen providers like Eastlink and Aliant...but I'm not sure of the
Any thoughts from the group ??
