Teksavvy offers very affordable high speed DSL Internet connection for Canadian residents. Here is the review of their $31.95 up to 5.0 Mbps DSL high speed Internet service.
Teksavvy uses Bell telephone lines to provide DSL service. They are basically a reseller for Bell. Their DSL download speed is up to 5.0 Mbps. The speed offered is very reasonable and on average ranges between 3.0 mbps to 4.3 mbps. Their $31.95 DSL service includes 300 GB of monthly bandwidth limit which is sufficient for intense surfing.
Since Bell lines are used, the DSL service seem to be very reliable with minimal downtime. During our test period of 2 months, there was no downtime observed. The bottom line is, if Bell is experiencing difficulties with their lines then Teksavvy customers will also face downtime.
Among low cost high speed Internet Service providers, Teksavvy has very good reputation for customer service. The sales reps are friendly along with tech support team. If you do face any negative situation, you can complain in DSL Reports forum.
Few Things to Note:
There is no contract. If you have an existing DSL modem, for example from Acanac, then you can use it with Teksavvy. If you don’t have a modem then you will have to purchase one. Purchasing a modem from Canada Computers will entitle you to a month of free service from Teksavvy. However, we advise that you purchase an used modem and save some money.
Often you will see advertisements in major populated areas from Teksavvy showing high speed Internet for $24.95. Please be advised that this price is for lite speed and not the 5 Mbps one.
Overall, Teksavvy is a decent company providing low cost Internet service.
