I only know Bell and Rogers, but I know they both suck and I will avoid doing business with either one if I can help it. For home phone I tried to go with Rogers but they apparently don't know how to give you a plain phone despite what they advertise, so I went with Bell. I have no long distance plan with Bell, instead I signed up for unlimited long distance with Worldline for $4 a month. For internet a did some research and found a website that tells you all the internet service providers by city, along user comments and ratings which was helpful because it allowed me to find a company called Caneris, $25 per month for high speed and no problems, and I'm satisfied. Now we are looking at getting television (I can live without it, so can my 20 month old because she'll watch youtube, but my wife misses tv). I realize antanna may require an additional device because it's HD, and I'm not sure if it will work because the tv is not HD. I was looking to see if there might be another company that offers television, such as by satellite, but I guess placing satellites in orbit is pretty expensive so that would be the barrier to entry (or setting up a new cable network, in the case of cable tv). Plus the only channel my wife really wants is Food TV, because it's happy, so I wonder if there is an alternative other than simply buying tv shows on dvd, which might get complicated. Maybe I'll just get a small package with Rogers or Bell ExpressVu but I don't really want to.
