    Broadband

    Currently using broadband provided by RBC - connectivity can be flakey. Would like to have a second backup broadband connection when the RBC connections goes down. Can anyone recommend an alternative provider.

    Check the T&C of your RBC connection. There may be clauses preventing you from procuring a backup connection.

    If you are looking for reliability - Zen Internet. Four years running, they have been PC Pro's Best Broadband ISP.

    I think we're going to try Be Broadband, who seem to offer 24mbit/sec download.

    Vote for Be here...

    We are close to an exchange and get 22Mbps/1.5Mbps all day long. The BeBox (router) that they supply can be a bit flaky so we installed a Cisco 857 instead. Annual saving compared to the LEA 8,000 - 268 whatever that is!

    The connection has been 100% reliable so far.
