I do live in Canada, and I have a nice 25/10 connection. You, on the other hand, are getting ripped off because apparently you haven't looked at the alternatives. I dunno if you can get faster - probably not - but you could certainly get cheaper. Check out 3rd party ISPs like Teksavvy, you'll be paying a lot less for your 6/0.8.

Teksavvy is just leasing off of Bell's lines anyways and actually provides worse support, according to all the reviews lately. If there is a network problem they have to wait for mother Bell to fix it, and it is no different going with their cable solution which is operated by Rogers. I don't have time to mess around with tech support on the phone for hours on end.

I should have mentioned that Bell dings me $70/mo because I'm grandfathered into their old High Speed Internet unlimited plan. So they are essentially charging me $25 overuse upfront per month. FIBE isn't even offered in our area, which is weird. Teksavvy also doesn't offer 25/10 here (neither does Rogers.)
