I've tried Rogers cable modem, Bell Sympatico DSL, and currently an independant guy for DSL.
with both my experiences with a DSL provider, I'm wondering if it's standard for the service to have to be reset approximately every 24 hours. While I don't intend to play more than 24 hours straight (never again), I'm not sure I get to chose WHEN it gets reset. Definately not with my current provider. With Bell I'm fairly sure it was exact. Every 24 hours (or possibly 12). but with this new one it just goes out randomly, sometimes for a few minutes and refuses to reconnect... and what's worse is if you're in a situation like I am with a roommate, even normal daily website browsing for one person takes up half the monthly bandwidth for a cheaper account. a more expensive account is no cheaper with these guys than the big ISPs, so there's no advantage unless you get the cheapo package.
unfortunately the apartment I'm in has no cable TV service. well, the Rogers website is completely useless. As usual, an impersonal information source is unable to give me the information I need. I can't tell if they let you have internet service without TV service. They didn't used to. I'll call them when I'm not just about to go to bed.
also, I'm not currently on an MMORPG. I realize they're evil and stupid. I was just thinking ahead to trying out Phantasy Star Universe, since I love the franchise and have played PSO. need a PROPER gamepad and a stable ISP before I consider it though.
