Bell fibre?
Install is usually free, if it's available in the area.
Packages are comparable in price to the other big guy, speeds are
better(here at least, Rogers hasnt managed 50Mb yet),
No cap, no throttling.
I've been averaging 100GB/month since they installed last year; torrents,
VPNs, etc...all the stuff they usually hate.
