Once again, in your rush to look superior you neglected to read the details. Teksavvy adds a "band rate" charge for dry loops. If you include that, it's a minimum of $43 per month, but it could be up to $63. They don't have a band rate calculator for BC lines, plus when I signed up for DSL here, Teksavvy hadn't come out here to BC yet, so they weren't an option. And personally, I don't feel like going without Internet for a week or more (they don't work with Telus modems) just to potentially save $10/month, especially considering I'm only going to be here for 2 more months at most. Or, I might end up paying more because they don't tell me what band rate I'd get. Not to mention I'm probably too far away from the CO to actually get 6 mbps.

Keep trying to make yourself look cool though, I'm sure all the other nerds holed up in their parents' basement are rooting for you.
