Default rogers or bell internet?

i'm with rogers right now. their internet was fine before, but as of late its gotten slower and slower. it's been really frustrating and i've been debating switching over to bell because they have the fibe internet or whatever its called, meaning equal speeds for all sources of use. our house can have up to 8 sources of internet running at once so it can get quite slow. anyone been with both and can offer some advice?

I heard Bell is faster. One of my neighbours has it and he says its super fast. I'd give it a shot but I'd problably want to switch over my TV as well and basically I'm too lazy to do that. My internet works fine

if ever watching a video, does it load incredibly slowly? or is the speed actually always consistant?

I have Rogers high speed and (surprisingly) it has never let me down. My business relies on consistent internet, and I have no complaints as far as internet is concerned.

i haven't noticed anything along those lines. I dunno sometimes when the vids are HD, the buffering is slow(ish), but meh. Speed is consistant.

It's been fine for me. Then again i never had any problems when i was with rogers either.

thanks all for the info. looks like ill be staying with rogers, because from research i can see that theyre similar and even if bell does have a slight advantage, my family's with rogers on everything so the deals we get subsidize the drop in quality.

I used to have a local provider in Liberty called Beanfield. I had the 100 kbps package and it spoiled me incredibly. tested at 98 down and 60 up regularly as we were about 200m from the hub.

Holy awesome. DLind movies at 2500k/ sec is nice.
