Netflix releases Canadian Top ISP Performance Charts

Netflix has posted a chart showing the performance of the top Canadian Internet Service Providers. The chart is exactly how I would have imagined and doesnt really offer any surprises.  Shaw provides both 50MB and 100MB packages, Rogers provide up to 50MB,  while Bell and Telus top out  at 25MB.  This chart shows exactly those results. While having higher speed internet packages may seem like the way to go,  Canadians must remember the bandwidth caps our ISP have put in place.  See below for a quick summary of your provider and your caps using higher speed internet.  This information will become more important to all Canadians as we prepare for UBB, which was approved by the CRTC.  With services like netflix finally offering Canadians some sort of digital content streaming, the CRTC is allowing your internet providers to charge you even more then you already pay for going over.

LG G2 Review

I can honestly say that with big surprise to me, it's LG that finally figured out how to merge Android OS and their skin without affecting the drain on battery life. Kudos to LG for a great device, and one that I think will be the new standard for how a smart phone should be.
