As GTA Telecom serves on the footprint of Rogers and Cogeco cable networks, depending on your area is the speed you'll get.
For all plans there is a $10 flat-rate shipping anywhere within the greater Toronto area, Montreal area was not listed.
You can use your own compatible modem if you prefer. Please note that you will need to provide GTA Telecom with the MAC Address and Serial Number for your modem during the registration process.
For example, the following modems are compatible for use with the Cable 150 Internet Plan: Cisco DPC3848N, Cisco DPC3848V, Hitron CDA3, and Technicolor DPC3848V
If you don't have a modem you can get a free rental, with a $59 deposit. Also, you can buy a Wi-Fi router for $69 or rent one for $5.95 per month. Or use your own.
The two FTTN plans are from the Bell network. Though unfortunately are from the older Bell network, so speeds are not as fast. The FTTN packages offer 50 Mbps Down / 10 Mbps Up at $44.95 The lower tier FTTN package is 25 Mbps Down / 10 Mbps Up at $39.95. You can get your own DSL modem/home router or get one rent-free, which again is $59 for a ZTE Home Gateway.
In summary GoneVoIP's reviews finds GTA Telecom Home Internet does have some competitive alternatives for the heavy internet users in the Toronto GTA area. The FTTN packages are less attractive, one certainly wonders why even bother to offer these. Though the reality is that in certain markets and areas is the only way to get high-speed internet.
