I live in a recently built subdivision (~5 years old) that is just north (~2 km) of a reasonably sized city (122K+) and I'm stuck with DSL (Bell) at *6* Mbps down/1Mbps up. Rogers (cable), which is faster, has serious issues with bandwidth during peak hours and throttles torrents (80kbps). Also Rogers limits all of their plans, except their "Ultimate" package (which is $122/mo) to *1* Mbps. Even their $70mo plan is limited to *1*Mbps. Bell charges me almost $70/mo for 6Mbps.
