If you find something that meets your requirements, please let me know as I
would be interested.
A few notes...
To get a fixed IP, you usually need to get a "business" service (which usually
costs more than comparable "residential" services).
You can get 25M/down and 7M/up on Bell's "residential" ADSL2 service for
$70/month; but you can't get a static IP address. Bell's fastest "business"
ADSL2 service (which includes static IP addresses) is 16M/down + 1M/up at
$165/month. And I don't think that the huged differences in speed is a
If you use any other ADSL providers, you probably will get ADSL2 that is
capped at 6M/down + 800K/up. Despite an order from the CRTC, Bell has yet
remove these these caps.
You can get better speeds from some of the cable-based ISPs, but almost all of
them are residential only (meaning no static IP addresses).
Currently, I think that you have to live with 6M/down + 800K/up if you want
static IP addresses for $100/month.
