The 24mbps are available in St Laurent where I live (that's not really downtown from what I know)..the 50 I'm not sure..
gosansfil.com a guy from dslreports is with them and I think he'll post some impressions later on...
I haven't done a speed test, but it's advertised as around 3.2MBpS download and 1.5MBpS download- you'll get those speeds if you are in ev-do coverage (I am)- but it isn't that much slower out of the ev-do zone provided you have decent cellular coverage.
I'd be very surprised if you can get those speeds off of it. A quick search says that people are getting stuff more like 600-700kb/s off of it. So it's decent but not quite HSDPA. It's still better than nothing though (and faster than my connection right now).
Just in case some random person finds thread through google- I don't want it to serve as advertising for Aliant because they suck.
I have started another thread to rant about this but for the record, they (Aliant) have informed me that my "unlimited usage" package is not in fact unlimited and that they are cancelling my contract and making me pay by the Gigabyte $60 for the first, and $1 per MB after that- so if I end up using 2GB, my bill will be $1060 for the month! nice.
Sorry for spreading my rant to another thread, but I didn't want this thread out there lauding Aliant's crappy service without the full story.
Since we were on this topic I did a speed test. I got about 5100 kb/s down. Then I ran the TCP optimizer and tested again. I got 26,000 kb/s down O.O I am only paying for 10,000 kb/s... how is this possible? Not that I am complaining. And still only 479 kb/s up though :\
