Here in Montreal, 24mbps ADSL2 has been available only in a very small area of the downtown core for the last three years. In all this time Bell Canada has made no attempt to widen the coverage area. The rest of the coverage area gets standard DSL with a maximum 7mbps download speed.
Meanwhile Videotron Cable is now offering 50mbps internet service albeit with a puny 75GB monthly download limit.
Going broke saving money.
