My investment in good WiFi APs also gets some use out of this. My phone and most of the mobile devices in the house are hitting 300/300 even wirelessly.

Bonus tech upgrade, Telus supports IPv6.

After tweaking my router config my client devices have IPv6 support.

Now I just need to learn how to safely do that for my servers.

Telus is now offering 1,500 Mbps download and 940 Mbps upload in some areas.

QuoteMaximum speeds require optimal network conditions on a wired connection. Internet access speeds may vary depending on location, usage within the home network, internet traffic, user device capability, applicable network management or server configurations. Maximum aggregate download speed is 1,500 Mbps. Maximum speeds are not achievable using a single device. Concurrent data streams may be required to access maximum speeds (i.e. 3 or more devices running at 500 Mbps each at the same time).

Still have the 300/300 and RARELY max it out, hell I barely get it up to 250 for more than 15 min.

And I still can't get fiber in my area :(

Well if I had to move to the boonies it looks like SpaceX StarLink could do over 600mbit or a minimum of 100/20 potentially.

Telus won't even put decent DSL out here, let alone fiber. Sigh.

No fibre here, either.  The best Telus offers me is 75Mbit download / 15Mbit upload / unlimited data for $105/month ($60/month for first two years).  Shaw gives me 300/15/unlimited for $110/month ($100/month for two years).  I have had Telus before, and my experiences when service was out were not good (took a couple of days to fix each time).  Sure, I'd save some money to get way slower download speeds, but I don't like the idea of internet out for more than a day...

I'm still humming and hahhing about getting both and setting up my router with dual WAN so that if one service drops out I still have the other.  I really don't like no internet...
Prayin' for a 20!

If backup is what you are looking for I would look into LTE options. I wouldn't pay for adsl as a backup to cable at home.  With some cell plans you could probably have a shared Data SIM on standby for as low as 5-10/mo.

Also reliability wise fibre tends to be on the reliable side. Hopefully Telus and Shaw continue to expand their residential Fibre.  They clearly start in higher density areas and work their way out.

As an FYI it appears Telus has formalized / updated its port blocking policies since I was hooked up.

Port 80 and port 443 are nolonger blocked..

A listing of blocked ports can be found here:
