Is TekSavvy a reliable ISP?

The only reason I ask, is because I sent them an email wanting to know if they service my area. The guy messaged me back asking for my full address. This seems kind of weird to me, as he should only need my postal code.

You could of checked it yourself on their website.

I've been with them since May 2012. They're good.

I have looked around on their site. I just find it strange for them to ask for a full address.

He wanted to come beat you up because the information was already on the website.

I've lived in multiple places where one side of the street has one ISP, the other side has a different ISP. It's not strange at all for them to need your full address, sounds like they have situations like that somewhere.

Be wary of TekSavvy as there are multiple reports of extended downtimes (as much as 2 weeks) over the last month or two in certain regions. I myself am with TekSavvy and have had no issues with them, but others haven't had as much luck and are now switching carriers.

That's because of Rogers and other telecom companies getting mad. These smaller companies that paid for their service are getting shafted because customers were switching from Rogers and etc to them. Now to get them back to Rogers; they are purposely causing downtimes by not servicing the indie ISP's that use their lines.

That's a really ****ed up thing that's going on in Canada right now.

Your postal code indicates a large geographical area and they may not service all of it.
It is normal for broadband providers to ask for your street address.
