Business internet for Cafe


I am from Toronto. I used to work at an MNC as a programmer. I recently quit my job and decided to do something else. Since my last job was really tiring physically and emotionally I have decided not work somebody else for some time. I am thinking about starting a business with one of my friends. He was a colleague at my last job and quit his job with me.

Toronto is getting filled with IT professional these days. Most of them are freelancers and they looking for a great place to work from. So we are planning to start a coworking space with a cafe. This is meant to be a perfect place in terms of ambiance and connectivity. We are still in the planning phase. So we are yet to fix on some of the specifics. We are currently calculating the expenses for running this business.

Fast internet is the most important aspect for any IT professional. So we are looking to subscribe to a business internet plan. My friend suggested using business ADSL from a Canadian. But we are still looking for better options (In terms of cost.) Please suggest some similar service providers with a low-cost and good quality of service.

They neglected a big thing.

DSL is barely good for one user let alone this many. You may end up driving business away.

Think bigger.

Here ADSL is 50 down/8 up maximum. Might be enough for a small office space, assuming that the customers won't use it for Netflix and such, but for serious work.

Indeed, cable and glass fiber go much higher. The price for cable here is comparable to ADSL.
But I don't know the suppliers and conditions in Toronto. Surely the OP does.
