Bells race against time

Even in the US the Bells are losing heavily to the Cable guys, who are bleeding them to death next too,  and in desperations  the Bells are  looking for any other possible sources of revenues.. *** But had they not abused, screwed their customers so often, the customers would not have so readily transferred to the cable ISPs. When the past Bells customers do  transfer to cable  they take not just their internet services es but their phone lines and next they rarely come back to the Bells too.. and the Bells revenues go down seriously.
 
Now “Baby Bells are in a race against time, trying to get their video services rolled out before they lose their grip over their core franchise: the voice customer. It is critical for the phone companies to keep people talking on their lines, if they want to sell them broadband and video services in the future, a point we had made earlier.UBS Research report shows that dark ominous clouds have gathered over the Bellville, and provides a statistical support for my thesis. 

  • In the fourth quarter 2006, the Bells lost 5.1% of homes served on an annual basis, driven by increasing cable voice net adds. Consumer revenues skidded as a result.
  • Currently, in the US Bells pass roughly 97 million homes and serve 64 million on a retail basis, about 65% penetration of homes passed. That’s down from 68% penetration a year ago.
  • Cable is eating their lunch. The top seven cable companies added 964,000 new telephony subscribers, getting to a total of about 8.3 million voice subscribers (estimated) or about 7.3% of U.S. households, up from 4.5% a year ago. The independent VoIP players have 2.6 million subscribers. The total cable & VoIP competition represents nearly 10% of the U.S. households, versus 6% of US households a year ago.
  • The consumer ARPU could not completely offset volume declines. Broadband revenues are slowing as well, mostly due to increased penetration.

 

Bells got $34 in average DSL revenues in the fourth quarter, down 9% annually, and only added 1.138M new subscribers in 4Q, down 18% annually and 3% sequentially. The Bells now penetrate 33% of homes served with broadband, up from 31% in the 3 quarter 2006 and 25% a year ago. AT& T leads the group with 39% penetration, followed by BellSouth at 34%, and Verizon and Qwest at 29% each.  DSL revenues are becoming a larger portion of the Bell revenues – about 20% of consumer ARPU, and any access line losses means that that the bells’ addressable market for DSL (and video) services declines quite a bit. Among the Bells, AT&T generated the highest contribution from DSL at 21% and Verizon the lowest at 18%. http://gigaom.com/2007/03/05/bell-accessline-losses-4q2006/

“Pike & Fisher calculate that the Bells — AT&T, Verizon and Qwest added 755,000 net broadband customers in the fourth quarter of 2007, the lowest level in five years. As we have noted earlier, broadband growth is slowing in the U.S., and we should expect more intense marketing battles.” http://gigaom.com/2008/02/22/bell-broadband-stalls/
 

***  Bell Canada

Well here again I sit and write about a multi-billion dollar corporation screwing its’ customers any way and every way it can.  This time it is the god of phones, Bell Canada.

After my move in early December 2007 I left Bell’s service for Phone and Internet to go with Rogers……yes I know from the sublime to the ridiculous.  Anyway, Bell’s Internet Service sucked, so I took it along with my phone to Rogers (the phone went because I could not pass up 6 free months).  The only reason I did not leave Bell for television was the fact that I have purchased over the last short while close to $1000 in equipment for High Definition TV.

I called Bell anyway, and told them that I was considering leaving.  When they heard that, they pretty much fell over themselves to keep me a customer.  It’s funny how places like this will do nothing for you until you threaten to, or really do leave. 

***Side note: since leaving for Rogers with my phone and Internet, Bell has called me three times!

In any case, they (Bell) offered me 2 months completely free TV, 6 months at 30% off, and the kicker….. A new High Definition PVR (Personal Video Recorder) for one year, FREE!   Needless to say, I stayed and this is where the fun began.

First, although Bell knew where to send my bill (because I got one at my new address they sent the installer to my old address.  It was explained that the departments don’t always talk to one another (go figure)!  So the refundable $100 installation charge went onto my account twice (because of their mistake), and only came off once.  I hd to fight this for a few calls, and on March it was dealt with.

Second, getting my two free months of TV has been like trying to walk on water!  Countless calls in January, February and yes indeed March I think I am finally going to get 2 free months.

Third, I noticed in January, and again in February that I was suddenly getting charged $20 a month for the PVR; remember the free PVR for one year?  So a few calls in January and again in February I thought I had this cleared up.  In March, they cleared the two months of charges to my bill (from January and February), but again charged me $20 for the rental.  This then led me to what probably amounted to my 15th – 20th phone call in the last 2-3 months.  As at March 24 / 2008 I m being told that my account is cleared up.  We shall see…….

In the interest of Customer Service………..BAD!  http://mypetpeeves.wordpress.com/2008/03/24/bell-canada-2/

Action, not mere words needed

  
 
What started as a simple phone call by me in January 2007 to Bell tech help line to determine why my internet services were so slow and sluggish next had  become a major farce, cover-up on the part of Bell Sympatico. I was next lied to for months as to the real reasons Bell they rather had offered me their poor internet services to me and  to many others in my city for years now too.. and then Bell had even  lied to me some more, had also breached their contractual obligations to me many times too, had allowed me even to be slandered, abused on the Bell customer forums now too.. and why? so  that clearly greedy Bell can continue stay in business to make more money..
 
and so who really cares now about the customer’s good welfare in reality? now? What not Bell itself, not the CRTC, not the federal government, not our Prime Minister Stephen Harper, not  the the federal Minister of Consumer Affairs, Jim Prentice..  not  any provincial consumer affairs Minister, but only the citizens, the news media, and the NDP party care about the citizens  good welfare really it seems. Not acceptable for sure too!
 
 
 
 “If you were half as good at running a company as you were at lobbying, maybe you’d have a better network,”  Quebecor executive vice-president Luc Lavoie who took a shot at the quality of Bell Canada’s cellphone service: . http://news.aol.ca/article/telecom-summit/258999/
   
 The future is wireless, some would say  and the  past way they have mismanaged their past land line, ISP services too,  clearly indicates they will do it also next with the wireless services too at the users, customers expenses…
  
Recent discussions by both Bell and Rogers on their Corporate need  to get more and more money, with even any excuse, still out of consumers, and to throttle the downloads,  only all clearly confirms the reality as to how poorly managed these same companies in reality are still.. They too now have been wrongfully over subsidized by the CRTC, the Canadian  federal governments now too… now it is rather time the citizens got the break, protection.

..now clearly useless LuvieDuvie:  thank you for your opinion but who had now made you the God, judge and jury of me now.. the devil?   judge me not and you will be not judged yourself.. firstly also take the big beam out of your own eyes and then you can help the others a lot better too..  for people like you who try to suck up to Bell rather still do not  help the matters for anyone.. for now Bell really rightfully needs a serious rod and not a carrot..
 
Me I had rightfully  witnessed how dirty Bell really is and I did something good about it.. I too had helped to exposé them to all for what they are really like  and rightfully too worldwide.. I told them what I was doing and why too beforehand even. Yes I do not show partiality to anyone bad cops, bad politicians, bad managers, bad pastors, bad corporations too and  I have been exposing them the last 3 decades.. for someone has to do it too.
 
I have been working with the News media, the press the last 25 years, and for a decade now too I daily write my views to all the major Newspapers, mostly in Canada, and they do next often act upon it as well. I also post my own comments on politics now too.  http://groups.msn.com/CanadaToday6  http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/  The news media plays a vital role in our society, it tends to be the voice, the conscience of the majority of the people, citizens..  Yes I also do even complain about news reporters lies, spins, distortions but fortunately they have their free speech and so do many others too now, me included.. at least most of the time.. I have had the police wrongfully come to my home 6 times in my life time in Canada cause some politician did not like that I had sent him a letter with a copy to the news editors, including a prime minister, premier, mayor now too.. and I am still writing, and most of the bad guys I wrote about are out of office  sooner or later. For the news media tends not to support the losers once exposed even by me.. and no politician can win without the news media support, for advertising is very costly as even Mrs. Clinton or the  PM Stephen Harper knows. Bell relies on their adds, not the past satisfied customers for it’s business mostly still too.
 
Have a nice day Paul

Re: The Paul Kambulow Topic 

‘I want the whole world to see what they are really out and to have BELL GO OUT OF BUSINESS.. THAT SHOULD BE CLEAR EVEN TO YOU from THE START of my post on Bell’s site’ 

Well if your venomous motives wern’t clear before, you certainly made them clear now.

 Like I wrote elsewhere here too

 I merely have substantiated here how many others now do also like me feel about Bell’s secrecy, under handiness, definite internet contract violations, lies… I support my side of the truth, story too.

I am not alone who complains to Bell often and loud.

and still what surprises me is that Bell wrongfully thought it could get away with al of their bad acts to me and others in the first place..

Me I have the decency to first complain to Bell, to tell them honestly, openly what I am going to post on my site next about them too, at least they were pre-warned by me.
but firstly you did notice that no one from Bell has send me a copy of my last six months billing or proof I had requested any contract changes, new equipment as well, and no one had phoned me back this week from Bell again now too.. now why was that? They had lied and had promised they would.

So it is no wonder so many people today are really rightfully upset at Bell, not just me.

Getting me more upset is the wrong thing for Bell to try to do, I just get louder, do write thousands more letters to news editors, electric officials still too..

They Bell should by now know I too can escalate the matters and not back down.. Bell still does needs to adequately deal with me, reply to me before it gets worse for them and they lose thousands more customers..
Beyond the shadow of the doubt the articles posted here by me showed that Bell ‘so capping reasons were false, unsubstantiated, and so I still rightfully object to Bell capping my net to all too.
I paid Bell for unlisted, unlimited download and they did not supply it to me, Bell did not even have the honestly to originally tell the truth to all and to beforehand say that they were capping it now as well.. Bell they done it first in secret, and were thus wrongfully violating my personal privacy in the process too.
Talking about Bell’s balance reply Bell they have only one reply basically and It is take it or leave it.. I have another.. I rightfully object!

but me I also do fight back and let the whole world know how the snakes in the dark operate in the darkness, and the darkness hates the light to be revealed upon it still too
Bell loses many many customers now too as a result of these exposures of how Bell operates.
Even my neighbors when they read the newspaper can see the positive influence that I have had on the elected officials, news media in regard to Bell’s undeniable bad services, bad acts and my neighbours they all agree with me on this too… I am doing a good thing exposing Bell.

In fact NDP Party did not make a public comment till I asked how come? and they immediately spoke out against Bell now too.
Have a nice day
Paul
http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/

Bell should not fight with someone retired like me, for I have plenty of free time , and a desire to pursue it with everyone even more next too, and it will be costly for Bell too.
I told them beforehand in writing the war with Bell will escalate NEXT TOO and it did, it has, they have a lot more to lose

Well at least I (we) now know the reasons why Bell apperantly told him they would terminate his internet service…. can’t say I blame then now.

I guess Birds of feathers flock together and thus maybe you are just as big a liar as Bell mostly still is for you cannot substantiate that Bell has said they would terminate my internet contract with Bell for in reality their rather bad internet services, for rather Bell has has even lately in writing now said to me that BELL STILL WANTS TO CONTINUE DOING BUSINESS WITH ME. SIGNED SASHA ROLLINS BELL EXECUTIVE CARE.
Thank you for your post anyway for it still gives me my free speech opportunity to write to all more about Big Bad Bell Sympatico, and how Bad Bell’s EXECUTIVE CARE SASHA ROLLINS AND HIS SUPERVISOR were, ARE IN BADLY INVOLVED IN ALL OF THIS abuse of me by BELL AGAIN TOO. Sasha has not denied my claim TO HIM IN WRITING TOO now of him likely being an accomplice Bell falsely by fraud tying to get me and many other BELL CUSTOMER’S of from our unlimited contract as some BELL’S SUBORDINATES had promised in January apparently to Bell’s Board of directors. YES I HAD OFTEN DETAILED BELLS MANY UNDENIABLE WRONG DOINGS WORLD WIDE IN WRITING TO ALL MANY TIMES even as to why they now are so Bad , for even the undeniable witness, public record. If Bell was not in the wrong do you now think they would have let all of my Bell writings drag on this long? of course not.. very revealing ehh?

Did you even now really think that I was writing here now at all to get any kind of support from anyone here, then you are still dreaming, and/or what you think this is some kind of election platform? popularity contest? Note Rather by fairness , by requirement of the law itself, I do have the duty to first present my complaints in writing to Bell Sympatico, to also detail my complaints to them, and also next to give them a chance to rectify them now, even before the matter can even be escalated to any of the courts, consumer affairs ministers, news media next too. This I have done. Thus had you read my posts here you could have noticed that I was just keeping this requirement of the law here too before the matter here too obviously has to be taken to court, by even Bell firstly now if they want to get paid, for they have already in writing admitted to me that I have pre charged them firstly with breach of contract, unethical, unprofessional behavior , harassment , obstruction of justice, fairness too, and many times in writing now, and Bell has, have not even denied it back to me and next they cannot by law, it is too late..
And so next I am rightfully now asking them to pay a compensation to me, and any others for all of this abuse now  too. I even have now specified the rightfully fair compensation demand from me for the whole world to know and read, at 1000 dollars and one year free high speed unlimited internet for their past false misleading adverting, poor services   to me, and for their undeniably not keeping now 3 past contractual agreements with me even those of August 2007, December 2007 too.
 
 Next this year  there were those lying crooks at Bell who to get a commission had definitely committed fraud / forgery and said I had requested from them both an  internet and equipment upgrade on my account, with no substantiation now to prove it too, even  like you,  and  I have reported this to the RCMP and asked them to deal with it too, and Bell has not even denied any of I toot, because Bell Sympatico Billing had confirmed these facts already this month  to me,  and gave me one of their names too, and so  I asked Bell to also prosecute those bad Bell people too still.  Why you think it was accidently that Bell had wrongfully refused to give me an official copy signed too, in writing the last four months Billing statement?  the direct proof of this fraud so I can likely also  present it too the judges formally too? Not so? Dream on..  for the reality bites ehh?
 
And what you do not think that many people who had, have read all these facts already, even  posted on over 30 different internet sites for months now too, posts read by hundreds of thousands of people world wide, that  next Bell has not lost many customers as a result too? Dream on!

Prime Minister Harper

 
Canada: The Lying Minister of Democratic Reform   Written by Press Release     Saturday, 26 April 2008  Democracy Watch
  
Today, Democracy Watch sent a letter to federal Conservative House Leader and Minister for Democratic Reform Peter Van Loan demanding that he apologize for lying last Wednesday, April 16th in the House of Commons about Democracy Watch’s position concerning the Conservatives’ TV advertising spending scheme during the 2006 federal election.
 
In response to a question in the House of Commons on April 16th, Mr. Van Loan stated: “In terms of our spending practices, I would like to quote Duff Conacher of Democracy Watch, who was on CTV today. He said, “The Conservatives did something in the last election that all parties have done for years. That’s legal, and parties can donate as much as they want to a local candidate and often do to candidates that don’t have a lot of local support and can’t raise money on their own. And then what happens is those candidates use some of that money to buy materials for national headquarters, like pamphlets, signs, platforms to hand out to people. That’s all–“

Group Calls on Federal Minister Peter Van Loan To Apologize for Lying About Democracy Watch’s Position on Conservatives’ Election Spending Scheme — Files Complaint Calling on Prime Minister Harper To Penalize Van Loan’s Blatant Dishonesty
 
And later the same day, also in response to a question, Mr. Van Loan stated:”Mr. Speaker, let us remember that this was a dispute initiated in the courts by the Conservative Party of Canada because of the unequal treatment of the Conservative Party compared with other parties, including the NDP, which engages in the transfer of funds between riding associations from its central party to assist in local targeted ridings. It has been going on for years. Duff Conacher said that on television. He said it is legal.”

In fact, this is half of what Duff Conacher, Coordinator of Democracy Watch, said on CTV’s Canada AM show on April 16th. He went on to say very clearly that he believes the Conservatives’ scheme violated the Canada Elections Act because the TV ads only contained a small-print message at the end mentioning the local Conservative candidate.
 
Duff Conacher also stated during the same Canada AM interview that he believes the court will rule that the Conservatives’ local candidates can only claim 10-20 percent of the TV ad cost as local campaign spending, and that therefore the Conservative Party will be found to have spent about $900,000 more on its national campaign than the legal election spending limit allowed under the Act.

“Peter Van Loan lied when he claimed that I said the Conservatives’ TV ad spending scheme during the last election was legal — in fact I said very clearly that I believe the scheme was illegal,” said Duff Conacher, Coordinator of Democracy Watch.
 
“Mr. Van Loan owes me and Democracy Watch an apology for so blatantly abusing our good name in trying to excuse the Conservatives’ dangerously undemocratic activities.”

Democracy Watch also sent a letter to Prime Minister Stephen Harper calling on him to find Mr. Van Loan guilty of violating the “Ethical Guidelines for Public Office Holders” that require ministers to be honest and are contained in Annex G of “Accountable Government: A Guide for Ministers and Secretaries of State-2007″. Democracy Watch called on Prime Minister Harper to penalize Mr. Van Loan’s blatant dishonesty by removing him from either the position of Government House Leader or Minister of Democratic Reform.

Section V.1. “Ministerial Conduct” of the Guide states:

“Ministers and Secretaries of State must act with honesty and must uphold the highest ethical standards so that public confidence and trust in the integrity, objectivity and impartiality of government are maintained and enhanced. As public office holders, Ministers and Secretaries of State are subject to the Ethical Guidelines for Public Office Holders and Guidelines for the Political Activities of Public Office Holders, set out in Annexes G and H. Moreover, they have an obligation to perform their official duties and arrange their private affairs in a manner that will bear the closest public scrutiny. This obligation is not fully discharged merely by acting within the law.”

The first guideline in the Annex G Ethical Guidelines is as follows:
 
“Ethical Standards: Public office holders shall act with honesty and uphold the highest ethical standards so that public confidence and trust in the integrity, objectivity and impartiality of the government are conserved and enhanced.”

Prime Minister Harper writes in his “Message to Ministers and Secretaries of State” at the beginning of the Guide:

“I cannot stress enough that implementation of the Federal Accountability Act and associated Action Plan is not simply a matter of compliance. At least as important is our commitment to a culture of accountability in everything we do – that is, to uphold the highest standards of probity and ethical conduct in recognition of the fact that it is a privilege and a trust to participate in the process through which Canadians govern themselves.”
and
“Ministers and Secretaries of State must act with integrity. To ensure public trust and confidence, not only in our Government but in government generally, Ministers and Secretaries of State must uphold the highest standards of honesty and impartiality. Both the performance of your official duties and the arrangement of your private affairs should bear the closest public scrutiny.”

As well, under section V “Standards of Conduct” of the Guide, is the following statement:

“Full accountability to Canadians is a central objective of the government. The Prime Minister holds Ministers and Secretaries of State to the highest standards of conduct for all their actions, including those that are not directly related to their official functions.”

Democracy Watch would have filed its complaint with the federal Conflict of Interest and Ethics Commissioner, but the Conservatives removed the rule requiring Ministers and other public office holders to be honest when they changed their ethics code last July into the new Conflict of Interest Act, and as a result complaints about such blatant dishonesty can no longer be filed with the Commissioner.

“If Prime Minister Harper does nothing to penalize Minister Van Loan for being dishonest, it will be yet another example showing clearly that he believes lying to advance the Conservative Party’s interests is fine with him, and that Cabinet ministers still can’t be held accountable for wrongdoing,” said Conacher.

The news media, press

Filed under: News and politics — thenonconformer @ 2:38 pm

I have been working with the News media, press the last 25 years, and for a decade now too I daily write my views to all the major Newspapers, mostly in Canada, and they do next often act upon it as well. I also post my own comments on politics now too.  http://groups.msn.com/CanadaToday6  http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/
 
The news media plays a vital role in our society, it tends to be the voice, the conscience of the majority of the people, citizens..
 
Yes I also do even complain about news reporters lies, spins, distortions but fortunately they have their free speech and so do many others too now, me included.. at least most of the time.. I have had the police wrongfully come to my home 6 times in my life time in Canada cause some politician did not like that I had sent him a letter with a copy to the news editors, including a prime minister, premier, mayor now too.. and I am still writing, and most of the bad guys I wrote about are out of office  sooner or later. For the news media tends not to support the losers once exposed even by me.. and no politician can win without the news media support, for advertising is very costly as even Mrs. Clinton or the  PM Stephen Harper knows.

“There’s irony in the notion that the Harper government finds itself under the gun over its election advertising . Political advertising has played a pivotal role in the Conservative party’s rising fortunes, and persists as the party’s preferred means of communicating with the public. But advertising lately has become a headache for the party, being forced to account for its spending on national ads during the 2006 election… the Conservatives won the last election in large part by being paragons of propriety, making accountability legislation a cornerstone of their election platform. The squeaky clean image was designed to contrast with the tarnish on the Liberal brand following the Quebec sponsorship scandal… Stephen Harper has embraced the mantra “playing by the rules.” His party, he asserts, is the one that represents Canadians who play by the rules. Yet here the Conservatives are accused of grabbing unfair advantage through a secretive scheme involving cash transfers between national and local Conservative campaigns… “

“Advertising is important to the Conservatives because they’ve experienced difficulty communicating by other means. The PM has alienated the Ottawa press corps and shied away from both formal news conferences and impromptu scrums. He appears before media mostly in photo ops, with no questions permitted. In addition, journalists, following the 2006 vote, were restricted in their access to the Centre Block area where the cabinet meets and Harper’s ministers often appear muzzled. With advertising, Conservatives have found that they can tightly control scripting and visuals to achieve their communications goals. And, having perfected the art of fundraising under tighter political financing rules, the party has been flush with money to spend on the favoured communications tool.  Conservatives raised four times more money than Liberals in 2007 –about $12 million — which helped them finance a prominent series of ads  Unfortunately for the Conservatives, ensuring such advertising supremacy over the Liberals required the circuitous financial machinations that now threaten the party’s reputation.”

The Tories spins are too late, the damage has been done, again and again.. and fighting with the news media who tend to represent the Citizens firstly is a stupid mistake for any politician, party.

WWJD? Vote for Obama, more and more young evangelicals say Atlanta Journal Constitution,  USA - 18 Apr 2008 They are turning what should be a recipe for conservative confusion into an opportunity for evangelical evaluation.
 
This is a joke, no one should take this serious, I saw on the CTV news today a video of Obama in a bar drinking Beer.. and unlike Catholics, the True professing evangelicals do not consumer alcohol..  so to me he Obama is just another Christian Pretender like the prime Minister of Stephen Harper now too who also consumes, distributes  alcohol and he what still professes to be an evangelical Christian. He cleartly too is not.
 
Known Boozer, ex Prime Minister Paul Martin a professing Catholic also consumes alcohol in abundance  and he too professes to be a Christian now too..
 
Republican White House hopeful John McCain lashed  was pressed on his own endorsement by the Reverend John Hagee, an evangelical pastor who has made outspoken remarks attacking the Roman Catholic Church and who has a definite unbiblical view towards Israel right to the promise land today, Israel’s personal salvation now too. Hagee has a perverted view of the John 3:16 eternal Salvation standards, with One for Christians, Unbelievers  and a different one for the Jews.  McCain said it was “probably” a mistake to solicit Hagee’s endorsement, which might help him with evangelical voters, but said he was “glad” to have it nonetheless.
 
“Just 1.8 percent of evangelicals believe that Jesus Christ would vote for Hillary Clinton in 2008. “http://airamerica.com/blog/2008/mar/30/southern-baptist-conversion-concern-about-climate-change
 
Also Trying to seal the significant loss of public, media  support Canada’s  federal conservatives resorted even lately  to damage control secrecy, spin control instead of being fully honest in the matter.
 
“In a scene out of a second-rate bedroom farce, government operatives skulked around, moving a “secret” briefing for select media outlets from one hotel to another.Most reporters were barred, while a few others, of varying political stripes, were admitted to a closed session. Certainly the topic at hand — allegations that the Tory party outspent its election limit by $1 million — deserves further explanation. The pertinent documents were scheduled to be released Monday anyway. Why would the Harper government go out of its way to further alienate the press corps, in this case including those friendly to Conservatives?”
 
Of course lately this isn’t the first time Stephen Harper’s Conservative government has shown a preference for control, spin doctoring, dictatorship, secrecy and false partiality, RACIAL, ETHNIC and GENDER  BIas too, and next even media favoritism and I have said that was rightfully unacceptable still a long time ago too. Unacceptably the Calgary Christian Missionary Alliance church, a false Christian church as I have detailed why before too, , the preferential Christian denomination  of the professing Christian evangelical  Prime Minister Stephen Harper  wrongfully  does all  that too as I have witnessed first hand many times too is never acceptable, so it is clear why Harper does the same things.

“MP Gilles Duceppe said the Conservatives, Harper  shouldn’t complain about being held to a higher standard” for they had claimed they were going to be more  honest too.

Bad persons, and Politicians, bad corporations  tend to be the same world wide, and the solution the same, full Public exposure and full prosecution of the guilty serves every one’s best interest next too still. For if the evil bad person is not exposed, punished they still  have no reasons to stop doing bad things and doing good things instead. They by the public exposure of their own bad acts they next also do find out that a good name was worth more than all the silver and gold they had hoped to acquire. And many next have as a result too.

.

I lived in Canada most of my life, I went to school, church, university, courts, hospitals there now too,  and I also worked only in Canada.  So I am truly Canadian. I am now retired but I do still purse my favorite pass time, writing on subjects like free speech, religion, governments, politics, and crooks such as even the bad RCMP too. I am transparent and fully  honest now too. Even if the bad guys do not like it. I do like to write about Christianity Truth, Freedom, Free speech, regulations, Transparency, Accountability, the government and the laws, Law and order with real justice, and gun control now as well.  

.

I am retired and I have a civil engineering degree, Concordia University , Montreal 1968, and I had worked as a Remax Realtor in Calgary too but in my decades of real life experiences in Canada the still too often unenforced existing laws, regulating societies, governments clearly did not stop too many Realtors, Lawyers, Pastors or even the cops now, Corporations too, Bell Sympatico from cheating, stealing, lying to the customers, others. It does not mean that have to accept it still too.   Garbage in means garbage out.. As a person who watches TV and films too , and often there is much too junk, garbage  In spite of the spin , the spin doctors, in reality Telus, Bell and Roger’s customers will have the same types of difficulties, problem next with the wireless system too after all they are dealing with the same inadequate pretentious firms.. they seems firstly to treat customers, citizens as dirt.. with disrespect clearly.. like the New Conservatives and the Liberals seem to do as well in Canada.. Unacceptable

Bell targets ‘bandwidth hogs’The Gazette (Montreal) – The last few weeks haven’t been kind to Bell Sympatico. The Internet service provider has been attacked from many sides by those angry with its traffic-shaping policy. This whole issue of throttling was brought to light when some customers who have the tools to measure their bandwidth noticed changes in their speeds. http://www.canada.com/montrealgazette/story.html?id=61d653fb-18b7-4c50-82b5-f720  

.

It was in July 2007 when for the first time I measured the speed of my internet services on a Bell recommend site http://www.speakeasy.net/speedtest and when I found out the answer I next contacted Bell and all of the major newspapers editors, major MPs now too and rightfully complained Bell had deceived me, mislead me about the Speeds it was giving me.. Bell had broken my contractual obligations On top of that

“On throttling, the Bell folks deny that such a slowdown exists, and if it does they say it is not from traffic shaping. But customers of Bell Canada have reported that they are experiencing a loss of as much as 90 percent of their normal bandwidth and speed. Devil’s Advocate said,in April 9th, 2008 at 5:50 pm I used to think that regulation was a bad thing. Bell has singlehandedly corrected that thinking, at least where a monopoly is involved!

.

Bell has been such an evil dictator to everyone for so long now. But, somehow, I knew there would come a day when Bell would have to answer for all of it.

.

Between the neutrality issue, the anti-throttling petition, and the anti-competition suits, Bell (and Rogers) has clearly demonstrated there is a blatant need for communications giants to be held accountable.

Canada is far behind in thier internet technology compared with Europe…where they have speeds of 20MB….compared to my current service with sympatico hoovering about 2MB…on a good day. This is not due to P2P applications as it is to poor infrastructure…IMHO.” http://www.bloggernews.net/115043  

.

 The  NDP they along with the news media, CBC, the gazette, etc they have been also pursuing their objection to Bell’s poor services, capping.

.

Bell says it has problems with their phone lines, equipment for years now too. Just do an internet search and you will see the same complaints for years now too from customers. That was one reason they Bell are switching over to wireless and putting their money there now. Yes on my site I had displayed the truth about Sympatico Bell’s connectivity, and the deliberate capping problems as I now know it. This major problem of Bell’s inadequacy is likely Canada wide, and it will costs millions of dollars likely to deal with, All money they Bell do not want to spent apparently to deal with these problems, and it will likely not be solved as they have not been solved in my case. Bell they are spending the money on the new wireless system now as I have said. I have told all people the truth of Bell as to how I as a Bell customer have experienced it the last 15 months, as well as telling it to the news media, government, and it has to be followed up at a much higher level clearly even likely in the Queen’s courts, CRTC, Consumer affairs, federal cabinet.. There is the video cable alternative, others too… Well at least the major news media is exposing Bell now too and the NDP, plus hopefully others too. Check your Bell internet speed at http://www.speakeasy.net/speedtest/  regularly and let us all know what it is really like .. and it should be at least 6300 kbs or more as I had (temporarily) gotten it.. Law and order, Public exposure and prosecution of the major guilty persons serves as the best solution, deterrent to all now still too. What else do you want me to do about it too? I have asked ma Bell to give a credit to all it’s customers who were ripped of too. Even me.

Law and order, Public exposure and prosecution of the major guilty persons serves as the best solution, deterrent to all now still too. Professionals, Politicians

Posted Apr 27, 2008 by paul kambulow
Boy do you still try to over simplify things for others.. and miss the whole big, bad picture. I really suggest you and Bell first do look at my page on Contract law facts in full.

1: Bell for 6 months starting in January 1007 undeniably also had wasted much of my time. Bell had lied to me for 6 months as to the false cause of their slow internet speeds, and Bell blamed it on anything but Bell’s poor, inadequate phone lines, and that was all really unacceptable. Bell here now too was already unacceptably guilty of false and misleading advertising to me about their promised speeds, also about their capacity to deliver their services too , and my whole local community now too. That was the big issue still unresolved adequately by Bell for many others in my community now too. In December 2007 I did not ask Bell for 304 dollars credit I had firstly agreed with Bell for next the 6 months free unlimited download internet next to compensate for the reality that now for many years Bell never firstly supplied me as obligated a high speed internet service because Bell’s EXISTING PHONE LINES COULD NOT HANDLE IT, and Bell had also supplied me still on top of that also a very troubled internet service. Bell next did not honour the spirt, the intent of my agrement with them in December 2007. Now I personally had asked this year for 500 dollars immediate payment rightfully in addition for all the problems Bell next caused me too. I will shortly increase that request to 1000 dollars, and also rightfully increase a demand from 6 months to one year free unlimited high speed internet services from Bell, if they do continue to trouble me on all of this, my rightfully payment for all of the unacceptable aggravations, and their clear failure still to meet the contract agreement, for Bell they ARE GUILTY OF contract breach definitely.

2: Secondly those liars at Bell had lied and had said next in 2008 that I had upgraded my Internet services, but they still cannot prove that ..IRONICALLY THE MENTIONED UPGRADE WAS A MISLEADING TERM, it undeniably WAS A WORSE CONTRACT RATHER FIRSTLY TOO, and why would I be so stupid to do that and to go for 7 megs when Bell firstly could not deliver the reliable, steady continuous 6 megs internet service they had undeniably promised me in July 2007 and next it did even last most of this 2008 year now too.

3: The 55$ for Bell;s unsolicited 2 wire modem. Was this credited to me? How in the world would I know when I cannot access or get a copy of the billing statements for this year from Bell still? and why is that?

4: The Overdraft charges of 75 for Bell’s double-billing twice even in one month were falsely not paid to me yet by Bell. But what else is new Dealing with Bell is clearly a really big trouble for half of the persons too. Bell can only be trusted to lie, and screw things up and Bell does not honour their contract agreement as I have witnessed.Thanks for the interest

Have a nice day

> but as you said you don’t even know if its been credited recently to you.> Aside from being taken for a ride with the line problem for months (which many, including myself can relate to), and them threatening to terminate your services,

>As for your contract law comment, you stated you didn’t accept the new contract, so what contract are you in?

>Why don’t you either just leave Bell and use Quebec Cable for both phone and internet?

>Also Quebec courts are usually very favorable to the small guy. Why not bring up your contract law case there and show the people what can be done? Show the example. It doesn’t cost much to do this.

>Do you think this ‘tech help forum’ can do anything about the contract or the interpretation of the clauses there in? or about Bell falsely changing the contract on their own without your approval knowledge too?

> May I once again suggest that you go to court?

>And Bell…
PLEASE give Paul his Bills over the past 6-months that he asked for. Its bad enough that you (Bell) threatened to end the services of a senior in order to scare him off.

>What’s next?

Speaking, dealing about my new and old contract terms with Bell is ongoing ..

This was a forum to allow Bell first to rectify their inadequacies right on! Tech here had said that my issues were being escalated, looked after too.. so they lie too.. so who is looking after ? what is his name and telephone number?

Public exposure, telling the truth to all how lying, pretentious, inadequate and what Bell is really like, does, is the start of all real justice..

I rightly even here have not agreed with any of Bell’s lies, bad services, bad follow up.. so how anyone can try to say I did is another distorted over simplification.

Nothing has basically changed the last 4 months, or the last 4 weeks on my wrongful and much too many Bell Sympatico problems.
Bell for sure did not yet pay me for the overdraft charges for double-billing me too.

Bell for sure did not yet pay me for the overdraft charges for double-billing me too.

I do not know anything at all really here too for Bell will not talk to me for when I contact them they say that some one from Bell has been appointed from the president’s office to deal with the issues he alone can deal with this, and he too has not talked to me as well next on any of this .. All I still I get useless run around from Bell support, Bell executive care and Bell accounting still on all of this.

My December agreement of free 6 months Internet was credited to me.. But it was illegally transferred from my unlimited account into the new account that I had not authorized, approved, requested, all as usual without my knowledge or permission too.

Bell is an incompetent dictatorship, Unbelievable Even my Bell internet speed was fluctuating, really slow and crappy again this weekend too.

So I wrote today more letters of protest, complaints to Bell and others..

What a bad way for Bell to run their business while the whole world can watch it now too..

Action required, not mere words

 
Supreme Court puts muzzle on sniffer dogs in Canada but real actions by the government still do speak louder than words.
 
OTTAWA —   Supreme Court of Canada rulling Friday   tightened the leash on police powers to use the canines for random sweeps.  “In its first pronouncement on sniffer dogs, the court sided 6-3 with a high-school student from Sarnia, Ont., and a Vancouver man who was caught with cocaine in his luggage at a Calgary bus terminal. “We’re no longer going to be able to show up and randomly search,” said Tom Stamatakis, vice-president of the Canadian Police Association. In both cases, police violated the charter right against unreasonable search and seizure by allowing their dogs to embark on general sniff searches of a school and bus depot without more concrete reasons to suspect drugs were present, the Supreme Court said.” The two rulings are expected to end routine searches in public places like schools and bus and train stations for now. The federal Justice Ministers can enact new legislation to overcome rightfully as soon as possible this shortcoming and they should.  The court decisions, however, were, are silent on airports, where police dogs routinely sniff the luggage of passengers entering the country. “Past Supreme Court rulings have established that privacy rights are lower when weighed against the need to secure the borders, prompting speculation that sniffer dogs will continue to be used at airports in the absence of a specific legal challenge. “It’s fair to say the decisions wouldn’t apply to airports,” predicted Brent Olthuis, a lawyer for the B.C. Civil Liberties Association, noting that neither case involved matters of border security. Quasi-private shopping malls, where private security guards are sometimes called in with sniffer dogs, are another “grey area,” said Stamatakis. The Supreme Court invited lawmakers to step in an spell out specific police powers with sniffer dogs. “Any perceived gap in the present state of the law on police investigative powers arising from the use of the sniffer dogs is a matter better left for Parliament,” wrote Justice Louis LeBel.”
 
Gangs and drugs,  alcohol are are still a big problem on Indian reservations and elsewhere. Why?  all while zero tolerance for gang affiliations or child pornography,  has developed too. We can tackle the supply of drugs by taking on and defeating the criminal gangs who should be treated in the same way as subversive organizations were. ” We all do  have to send a message loud and clear to the gangs – you are not tolerated and If you are caught  you will be charged. In many cases such gangs are linked to organized crime. You need to fully also go after the gang leaders who are making money using the kids and drugs to do it.   The government can now wrest control of violence-plagued reserves  by having zero tolerance for gangs and by banning drugs and alcohol from homes,  with the help of  RCMP and the courts. I can tell you that our government is committed to ensuring that Canada will not be safe haven for those who pose a threat to our national security or the safety of our families and communities. On this, our tolerance level is zero,” Stockwell Day but real actions by the government   still do speak louder than words. 
 
The most successful policing model in modern terms is the “zero tolerance” model used in New York . The strategy was known there as “one broken window” following the observation that where there were broken windows and rubbish in streets there was crime. During the programme’s operation in New York, the number of murders plummeted from 2,262 to 629.”
 
Also “Fear of imprisonment has very little effect on a heroin addict but has a dramatically different impact on a company director who dabbles in cocaine – middle class drug use is helping to fund the violence and we need to adopt a zero tolerance policy towards it”.
    
I have a civil engineering degree, Concordia University , Montreal 1968, and I had worked as a Remax Realtor in Calgary too but in my decades of real life experiences in Canada the existing laws, regulating societies, governments clearly did not stop many Realtors,  lawyers or even now Bell Sympatico from telling lies to the customers, others. Nor did  the RCMP always get their man or the police, courts for that matter too.

I now do realize that I have been told many times now by Bell on the phone, on the net that my internet account matter now has been escalated to the Highest level at Bell, specially Bell executive care services, and that as usual I might have been lied to now again by Bell, lying is what Bell mostly does in my last 18 months of dealing with Bell directly too. So please now today
1: Inform me the specific date that my Unlimited high speed download account had started and was next ended.
2: Give me the name of the person specially from Bell who to get a commission had lied that I had upgraded my Bell unlimited account, and who said that I also had asked to have my modem upgraded as well.
3: Give me also the mailed copies of my last 6 months billings in full as well
4: Do Deal with my many other rightful complaints, demands sent to Bell now too..
And for most of this 2 days respond time should be adequate for Bell..

Thank you

I had written 300 letters to Bell trying to get simple, straightforward satisfaction, appropriate payment,  answers from them and of course they dishonestly refused to provide any answers.. all they Sasha Rollins,  did eventually is double bill me and next cut of my internet for complaining too much to them.. real perverse people. Nevertheless I posted a full log for about 2 years on the net, too all of the major news editors, major politicians now too  for all to read, and Bell undeniably now did not try to deny it too, as to how crooked they were and how poorly they had actually responded to their false breach of my internet contract too.

Are you being harassed falsely for payment.. send them this type of  letter..

.

Be advised that I dispute the alleged debt to me and I rather rightfully do suggest you take the matter to court with the guilty party, which is not me. Pursuant to the Collection Agencies Act, R.R.O. 1990, REGULATION 74, you must immediately cease and desist from ALL contact and attempt to contact me, You clearly have made an error in judgment that I do work for you, have to obey you, have to deal with you and you do not, however, have the right to break the laws, threaten or harass me in your attempts to get your due invoice paid. I AM VERY FAMILIAR WITH CONTRACT LAWS, AND CONSUMER RIGHTS . You cannot continue to call me or send your letters, emails to me as I am not the person you should be dealing with for your payment. And the use of hounding harassment, intimidation and fear mongering, bullying’s, tricks, scare tactics, or harassing to try to force anyone to pay the debt is still illegal.. Note harassment is “engaging in vexatious conduct and comment that is known or ought reasonably to be known to be unwelcome.” Human Rights Code, R.S.O. 1990 Canadian laws, such as the Collection Agencies Act, do still have standards and limitations that all collection agents, firms must follow when dealing with anyone . I do not have to deal with you , unless ordered to do so by a court and still there is no guarantee that you will win if you sue me and getting me to court is costly and could take years. In fact you cannot insist on anything! If I do feel I AM being harassed I CAN call and file a complaint with the police, also now contact the internet firm, the telephone company about the harassment. As well, I can complain also to  the Consumer Protection Branch of the Ministry of Consumer Services. I personally do not owe you any money. By Canadian laws, you are supposed to immediately stop calling me, and not contact you at all when I have sent you a letter disputing the debt and I suggest that you take me to court or rather the guilty party which is not me.. Your abuse of the laws may also net you not just bad publicity but a large fine and even loss of your operating license, and give me evidence to contact the Police or to expose you for your false harassment. “The laws are in place for a reason,” “They are to protect citizens, consumers from abusive practices.” In addition all further threats are also illegal and are also banned under the law if you have been told to go to court.. .

Next if You likley are reading this cause you agree that even the phone Companies tend to be crooked, rip off the consumers too..

Court slams Bell TV for ‘reprehensible’ violation of customer’s privacy rights The Federal Court of Canada has awarded a Nova Scotia man $21,000 in damages after a judge ruled Bell TV had violated his privacy rights by checking his credit history without his permission.In a decision released this week, Judge Michael Phelan said Bell TV’s conduct was “reprehensible.”The judgment says that when Rabi Chitrakar of Beechville, N.S., ordered satellite TV service on Dec. 1, 2010, Bell conducted an unauthorized credit check that hurt his credit score. http://www.theglobeandmail.com/report-on-business/court-slams-bell-tv-for-reprehensible-violation-of-customers-privacy-rights/article15212772/

“Canada’s leading telecommunications carrier, BCE Inc and  Kevin Crull, president of Bell Canada’s residential services division, is asking Prime Minister Stephen Harper and his cabinet to reverse a CRTC, which was reaffirmed by regulators on March 3, 2009, ruling requiring the company to offer the same bandwidth speeds to wholesale ISP customers as it does to its own subscribers. The CRTC ruling according to Preexisting regulations already rightfully requires incumbent phone companies (including BCE) to rent network access to smaller internet service providers, so as to foster competition and keep the cost of basic internet service at a reasonable level. This is a very reasonable demand too. Monopolistic  BCE naturally argues that the December decision  will cut into it’s own revenues  nevertheless the Conservative government for the good of all Canadians now, should not listen to the falsely abusive companies like BCE, and not remove these regulatory barriers  ”

 Look I have rightfully hundreds of time to the government, on the net, to the news media already have said that phone companies    undeniably, unacceptable too, are a bad big despotic control freak, monopolistic, immoral, deceptive in reality, practice, and in reality most of the phone companies   do  not honour the normal, decent laws, rules, regulations. Bell Canada included   is a dictator that wants all others to play by it’s own rules. Bell does not know how to respect, keep, honour the terms of it’s contractual obligations to it’s own customers, immoral Bell rather likes to rewrite the contract continuously, one sided so that it is always better solely for Bell. Dream on..

.

Well even if Bully abusive Bell falsely under the guise of profitability, competitiveness, making more  profit or whatever, now still   thinks it is a big, large, established firm, corporation that does not have to play by the established rules, rather it can make it’s own rules. I on behalf of all Canadian, Bell’s customers even now, I am rightfully asking nevertheless that the federal government, prime Minister Stephen Harper and his cabinet exemplary force Bell to respect the laws of decency, norms, the established regulations and to even regulate next  rightfully Bell much more so that bad Bell definitely stops being guilty of it’s undeniable  false misleading advertising practices, unfair and restrictive trade practices for the good of all Canadians now as well , not just for the good of Bell.

.

Regulators need to exist cause we all tend to know big bad corporations tend to cheat, lie, abuse the consumers.

I have an engineering degree, Concordia University , Montreal 1968, and I had worked as a ReMax Realtor in Calgary too but in my decades of real life experiences in Canada the existing laws, regulating societies, governments clearly did not stop many Realtors,  lawyers or even now Bell Sympatico from telling lies to the customers, others.  http://anyonecare.wordpress.com/2008/07/13/misapplications-of-the-laws-in-canada/

Imagine that Bell has been in Business for many years and was, is still too often, wrongfully guilty now clearly of misleading advertisements, fraudulent and unacceptable business practices, not living up to their contractual obligations, as I now have PERSONALLY WITNESSED, EXPERIENCED  and undeniably detailed to even Bell and many others and  many times too now . I had Paid for a high speed unlimited download service but that is not what I got next. I got low internet speed at a high price. With Bell you have to check your actual delivered speeds , “internet download and upload speed test” continually too cause Bell wrongfully seems always  to change it to suit themselves..

Basic Contract law – Basic Contract law – Basic Contract law- Basic Contract law
.
 
Next here is basic legal, valid  understanding, terms of a valid contract, contract  law for all of the managers, president of Bell and all of  Bell employees too. Not just for any customers. Bell had, has definitely detailed, advertised it’s Internet services to all with their  terms, limitations and any customers who enters into mutually agreed upon terms, agreement with their services now forms the  essential mutually legally binding contract..
 .   
1: A contract is a legally binding exchange of promises or agreement between competent two parties, persons of legal age too, that the governmental court, the law of the state or province , or country next will enforce. Contract law is based on the Latin phrase pacta sunt servanda (pacts must be kept).  Anyone can enter into a contract, except minors, certain felons and people of unsound mind.  It’s important to know that not all contracts details even  have to be in writing., for instance, certain agreements can also be made and accepted orally and still be legally enforceable. While the contract agreement doesn’t always have to be in writing, all the other elements of a valid contract still have to be met, included, , fulfilled by law. The bottom line is that  the parties generally come to transactions in good faith, mutually trust and understanding, and not a one way approach, one way demands, one way relationship. All valid  courts, will not enforce, accept as valid  any contract to perform an accepted illegal act. A contract to kill some is invalid clearly too.  A person who pays for bad drugs that aren’t delivered can’t next seek the help of a court or the police in getting the money back. Unbelievable some people still do try to do this too. A valid contract also always requires the mutual parties’ consent, which must be freely made, not forced consent,  and clearly communicated to each other. Consent is not free when obtained through duress, menace, fraud,  lies, undue influence or mistakes, serious errors were presented.  Consent isn’t mutual unless the parties agree on the same thing in the same sense, a clear “meeting of the minds. One party now  presenting only their own  their terms, conditions, without the other parties approval, consent, free will   clearly is still not a valid contract.  In order for an acceptance of an offer to be effective, it must be made while the  sales, specific, fixed service offer is still open. Any  person can changes the conditions of an initial offer in responding to the offer, the old offer is clearly now rejected and the changed conditions constitute a counteroffer and that now becomes part of of any subsequent agreed upon contract. I did that with Bell now too. Once there is next a final, written contract between the parties, the parol evidence rule forbids the introduction in a court proceeding of any previous agreements between the parties on the subject matter of the contract.Only certain contracts aren’t valid unless in writing. Generally, they do deal with real property, certain specific loans, debts, money exceeding a certain amount, or contracts concerning the sale of goods worth more than $500 or one that   include  objects that won’t be performed within one year or within the promisor’s lifetime. Bell now being unable to supply me a promised high speed internet but only a low speed one is still a good example of an invalid contract even if was a written one originally from Bell.
.
2: The Specific parties. The contract must always include,  identify who the agreed upon specific parties are; usually names are sufficient, but sometimes addresses or titles may be used.   Bell and the specific customer. Me in this case.
.
3: The agreed upon object.  The Offer,  the thing, the value, the  services being agreed to is also known as the object or subject  and it itself not only  must be lawful, possible but it must be a definite, fixed, measurable amount specially now even by the laws of Quebec too. For instance Bell promising to deliver a customer a 6 meg download high speed   internet service, where they know they only have a 3 meg line capacity is not legal or legally binding contract. Bell  promising to supply their” best services “or “up to 6 megs services” is not legal as well for it is  is not really an agreed upon  fixed  object, rather the object is not definite and most customers have take that to mean 6 megs anyway. . The object of the contract does have to be very specific and measurable. It is Bell obligations now to to clerk up any ambiguity on the contract as agree upon by the comer now too. So if Bell promising a 6 megs internet services, and Bell by law  next has to deliver 16 megs to meet their promise that is also now part of the contract too. A specified length of time, such as one year does not mean the contract is still valid if Bell has not lived up to the agreed upon previously contract terms.
.
4: The outcome, or the considerations. All contracts require consideration, meaning each party must gain something fixed, tangible. It may also be something that is or isn’t done or given.   When a party agrees to do something (such as I will paint your house) or to not do something (I will not  sell my  house to anyone else for 30 days) they next also must gain something in return toy make this a valid contract, they must receive  agreed upon   fixed payment, a fixed reward. Generally, if I say I’ll paint your house, and you haven’t promised me anything in return, you can’t sue me next for not showing up because I will not receive  any consideration firstly”. Once a contract has been created, it can be determined if there are any issues that call into question of  its validity too.
  . 
5: Termination of contracts.  Breach of contract.  Breach of contract is recognised by the law with applicable penalties now too.  Contracts generally can only be terminated if mutually agree now by both parties as to what the terminations terms included. Parties to a contract may mutually agree to rescind the contract. In that case, the parties may agree on the duties and responsibilities of each party after the rescission. Bell still expecting  me to pay for their internet when they do not keep their promises is a breach of the contract, an invalid demand of me.   Now is the contract  price set, are promised quantities specially  determined, and is the time for performance clearly  stated? There should be enough information contained in the contract  always  that, if needed, the courts likely next  would be able to enforce the contract or determine the appropriate damages. Unless it is mutually agreed upon before any subsequent court demanded decision action,  is taken.  Fraud is the intentional misrepresentation of an important issue of the contract. The presence of fraud in a contractual proceeding makes the contract voidable by the party upon whom the fraud was perpetrated. The contract always still now binds both parties, and not just the customer to the terms, conditions of the contract agreed upon now as well.  Once it is determined that there is a contract, it it  still can, must be determined whether there are any defenses that call into question the validity of the contract.
 .
Bell Changing horses, making changes, additions to the contract in midstream is invalid, a breach, still not allowed, especially without the subsequent, and pre consent, approval of both parties now still too and is a breach of contract rather. That includes Bell capping of my bit torrent downloads too on my unlimited download account
 .
Yes a Bell  contract also may end because of a breach by Bell.  A breach occurs when a person, or a firm  does not fulfill his or her, their  responsibilities as promised in the contract. A breach may be minor or major. A  major breach is one that does affect the subject matter of the contract and does  affect the outcome of the contract.  Bell not having sufficient equipment, capacity in place to meet my high speed internet, is a breach of contract. This is also known as a breach of a material issue. When there has been a breach in a contract, the question of damages is raised. The damages due to a party when there is a contract breach depend on many factors, including: which party breaches, and what damages were incurred. In most cases when an injury results from a contract breach, the injured party receives money damages. Such as I have in Dec  2007 from Bell.  Bell itself has unacceptably cause now in the last 2 years many unacceptable breaches in our contract that I have clearly even in writing not accepted and have objected too and demand restitution of as well rightfully.Go back to a good school firstly Bell if you cannot understand and keep all of this now too.
.
“Despite precedents that show that contracts substantially favoring the party with the greater power often are deemed unconscionable (so unfair as to not be enforceable), lawyers stiff draft them and companies still like them.   Lesson learned: Make deals that are balanced; contracts that distribute risks and responsibilities fairly. Such deals will be honored by courts and your businesses wealth and reputation will benefit over the long term. “ http://troutmanhays.wordpress.com/2008/03/23/one-sided-contracts-are-a-bad-deal-for-all-parties-or-getting-greedy-will-get-ya/      
  . .
PS: “In Real Estate specifically , there it is a requirement at Law that contracts be written down in usually lengthy legal forms to avoid uncertainty, ambiguity and to be binding “.   When I asked Bell to confirm the contract I had with them in writing they next always had refused to do so..
 .
 
When attempting to enforce a contract, an individual or business , even Bell should always consider the effect any dispute will have on any long-term business relationship between all of the parties involved.

It has always confounded me as to why the liars, crooks, deceivers, abusers  too often do still do think they can get away with now, next and forever.
.
FOR WE TEND TO KNOW THAT THEY THE CROOKS, ABUSERS TOO,  NOW ARE NOT ABOUT TO STOP THEIR WRONG DOINGS. RATHER THEY WILL NEXT EVEN ESCALATE, CONTINUE IN THEM. AND THAT IS ANOTHER VALID REASON  THEY DO NEED TO BE EXPOSED, PROSECUTED AND STOPPED. EVEN FOR THE GOOD OF US ALL.

THERE IS A  VERY BASIC COMMON MISCONCEPTION ON HOW TO DEAL WITH ANY PERCEIVED EVEN INJUSTICES, ABUSES, ANYWHERE, IN THE CHURCH AS WELL, BESIDES IMMEDIATELY CALLING THE LOCAL  POLICE..

THE NEW TESTAMENT IS CLEAR HOW TO DEAL WITH IT.. COMMUNICATION – AND YOU DON’T FIRST POST IT ALL ON THE NET.
.
First you merely ask the guilty, bad persons personally to repent twice, the first time without a witness, the second time with witnesses THAT you have asked them to repent.. and  detail  proof, substantiation is NOT required.. after you have done that you can next post it openly on the net, tell all the others.
.
Next God also is now fully free to deal with the unrepentant guilty offenders and believe me he will.. I have now been doing for decades too..I SIMPLY SEND AN EMAIL, I PUT IT INTO CLEARLY WRITING, SO THE GUILTY PARTY CANNOT SAY I DID NOT ASK HIM OR HER TO REPENT.

WHETHER THEY ACKNOWLEDGE IT OR NOT TO GOD DOES NOT MATTER.

So why does our pretentious , inadequate Minister of industry, even the past Minister Jim Prentice MP and the useless federal, provincial consumer affairs departments fail over and over again to look after the good interest of the consumers, but look  mainly after Big business good welfare? and his friends ” And not the rest of us? 
  .
YOU NOW ALL DID NOTICE HOW THE LYING, BIG CRYBABY MONOPOLISTIC BCE, BELL OFTEN COMPLAINTS THAT THE COMPETITION IS HURTING IT’S BUSINESS AND YET SOME HOW BELL GROWS RICHER, BIGGER AND HAS NOW EVEN BOUGHT CTV AS WELL.
.
I rightfully really hate business firms like Bell and others that falsely think a contract is a one sided deal that insures they always get paid and falsely forget about the customers’ right as Bell does too often as I have detailed many time now too.. Consumers, customers have legal rights!!!
.
I KNOW FROM DECADES OF FIRSTHAND EXPERIENCES IN MY ENCOUNTERS WITH COPS, LAWYERS, PASTORS, SO CALLED PROFESSIONALS,  OTHERS TOO, that most often now in reality the very same people who do tend to preach to others that we all must not steal, tell lies, drive drunk, that we must respect other person’s rights, all the laws…  those very  same persons who so readily  tend to preach the rules to others, those very same persons  who  expect all of the others to falsely obey  the rules even now  all the while they most often tend to be the firstly the  very same persons to break most of  the rules themselves, they themselves they do not keep them, and they still also  falsely believe they personally are exempt from living the rules cause  they do preach them  to others.
 .
What you had never encountered crooked cops, crooked pastors, crooked lawyers, crooked managers, bad executives, lying no good politicians too?  These same persons  who too  readily judge others, and who demand, want to enforce the rules upon the others, they  cannot see the truth as to who they are firstly, they themselves are now the lying hypocrites.
 .
When most a person tries to enforce any rule upon me I immediate rightfully do next often do ask them who they think they are that they think I now have to respect the  man made rules firstly? What makes them think I have to be now their false slave too? And why do they think that they are any kind of boss over me in these matters?
 .
For  just cause  someone, a lawyer now too even,  some one made up some set of rules it still does  not mean they are all valid, or legitimately  enforceable now too!  I still have even my right of free speech and I still can say what I want, write what I want too.. even about them now too. Not all man made rules, regulations even in writing are rightfully valid still in reality, and just ask any decent judge on the court of the Queen’s judge and he or she can tell you the same thing too.

Courts Turn Against Abusive Contracts
 .
“In the past month, however, two new US court rulings suggest that judges are developing a more sophisticated sense of how corporations conduct online and technology transactions with their customers that Bell Sympatico especially now needs to note.
  .
“The EULAs or terms-of-service agreements are long and legalistic, the deals are offered on a take-it-or-leave-it basis and the terms are often oppressive and one-sided. As a result, the legal hegemony of the EULA is cracking. This is a good development for consumers, who would otherwise be saddled by oppressive terms they have neither the legal sophistication to understand nor the bargaining power to avoid, and for the public interest, which suffers when customers are forced to waive rights that capitalist democracies rely on for innovation and accountability.In Gatton v. T-Mobile (.pdf), the California Court of Appeal struck down a provision in the mobile phone company’s EULA requiring consumers to go through arbitration to challenge termination fees or the practice of selling locked handsets that can’t switch carriers with the customer. The court held that both the way customers entered into the EULA contract, and the arbitration terms of that contract, were unconscionable, and therefore the provision would not be enforced.The reasons the court gave for holding the EULA procedurally unconscionable apply to most EULAs. Even though the arbitration term was fully disclosed to consumers, the contract was one of “adhesion”: an agreement imposed and drafted by the party with superior bargaining strength, which gave the consumer only the opportunity to accept or reject the contract, not to freely negotiate it. As a result, the customer’s unequal bargaining power results in an absence of meaningful choice. The fact that the customers could choose a different carrier may mitigate, but not cure, the procedural unconscionability.Gatton is an important case because it recognizes that every clickwrap, shrink-wrap, browsewrap and box-wrap contract has an element of procedural unconscionability that requires the court to consider whether the challenged term of the contract is overly harsh or one-sided. This opens up the content of contracts to legal supervision, which is great in a situation where the customer hasn’t really been able to bargain, negotiate or otherwise exercise market power.The federal courts seem to be following suit. In Douglas v. U.S. District Court (Talk America) (.pdf), the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled last month that a service provider may not change contract terms by posting those changes on its website without notification to the customer. In this case, the plaintiff sought to invalidate an arbitration provision like the one in Gatton and a provision stating that New York law would apply to the agreement, because the terms were added to the service agreement after the customer had signed up. The court held that the customer could not be bound to new terms, even by continuing to use the service, if he is not given notification that the terms have changed. Modern customers are at a real disadvantage against the bargaining power of technology corporations, some of which have shown no restraint at trying to limit consumer remedies, or even product testing and review.  Douglas show courts are moving away from applying a simplistic theory of contract formation toward developing legal rules that are more attuned with the modern marketplace and balance of power. This is a welcome development, and one which could protect consumer interests and the public interest by developing rules and limitations on the otherwise extremely useful practice of mass-market contracting.”Jennifer Granick is executive director of the Stanford Law School Center for Internet and Society, and teaches the Cyberlaw Clinic. http://www.wired.com/politics/law/commentary/circuitcourt/2007/08/circuitcourt_0801

“David Lazarus of the The Los Angeles Times blasts Verizon today for withholding contract terms from customers until AFTER they have signed up for service – and some of the contract terms are ones that I sure wouldn’t agree to: they have signed up for service – and some of the contract terms are ones that I sure wouldn’t agree to:
.

Verizon not upfront on contract terms – Los Angeles Times

Excerpt:

For years, credit card issuers have gotten away with withholding contracts from customers until they actually have the plastic in their hands — a practice that denies many people a fair chance to look under the hood for onerous terms and conditions.Now it looks like Verizon has adopted the same technique.

What really struck [Torrance, California resident Sandy Lough] was the discovery that to receive the promised discount for her bundled plan, she’d have to go online and agree to a 2,000-word “bundle service agreement” and a 7,000-word terms of service for Internet access.

This was the first time she was being presented with the full contract for her new FiOS setup, and the service had already been installed and activated.

The LA Times article goes on to mention some of the more notable terms of the contract.  The interesting thing is that it would appear that this is not simply an oversight – that perhaps Verizon deliberately withholds contract terms from customers until they’ve already committed to the service:

As for why the full contract is withheld until after FiOS has been installed in a person’s home, [Verizon spokesman Cliff Lee] said only that “this is the way we’ve found that works.”

.

What has happened to make large corporations think they can simply change the deal at their whim, after a customer has already signed on the dotted line, without giving the customer the same right?  “

.

No large corporation, with almost infinite legal resources and billions of dollars behind them, should be able to use their wealth to put real people at a disadvantage, because it would be presumed that only the corporations   had any legal rights.   Bell included now.

.

What started as a simple phone call by me in January 2007 to Bell tech help line to determine why my internet services were so slow and sluggish next had  become a major farce, cover-up on the part of Bell Sympatico. I was next lied to for months as to the real reasons Bell they rather had offered me their poor internet services to me and  to many others in my city for years now too.. and then Bell had even  lied to me some more, had also breached their contractual obligations to me many times too, had allowed me even to be slandered, abused on the Bell customer forums now too.. and why? so  that clearly greedy Bell can continue stay in business to make more money..
.
 
and so who really cares now about the customer’s good welfare in reality? now? What not Bell itself, not the CRTC, not the federal government, not our Prime Minister Stephen Harper, not  the the federal Minister of Consumer Affairs, Jim Prentice..  not  any provincial consumer affairs Minister, but only the citizens, the news media, and the NDP party care about the citizens  good welfare really it seems. Not acceptable for sure too!
.
  
“The ISP suppliers, Canadian corporations  now even such as Bell still are big unacceptable Liars who undeniably too are  clearly  guilty also of misleading, false advertising too now.. (Presently I am with Acanac Inc. http://www.acanac.ca 1-866-281-3538, and do  see their speed test too)
 .
Acanac had initially mentioned on their internet  site that they do not cap their downloads.. but they conveniently had forgot to also say to all of the potential customers on their site that they lease their services from Bell   and that Bell itself  still regularly   caps their downloads.. any time they want..  when confronted with this they  Acanac Inc do reply  that  they do not cap their downloads but Bell does.. what an absurd misleading play on words still. Mind you Acanac headquartered in Toronto did also claim  that  they do provide a solution to this Capping software by means of a Putty software but unfortunately this  Acanac Inc approach was. is unreliable, required continual monitoring, and is presently   more problems then what it is worth. But they did, do have another alternative and it is the Tunelier software, and it really  is more reliable offering a download of about between 25 to 250 kbs.. the download speed varies as well and I wonder why???? It is both a Bell and Acanac problem..  but  Acanac’s support services have improved…
.

Bell itself found a an excuse for not performing a specific job assigned to them under the  contract agreement but fooled few people in the process now too. One side breaching a contract is a common, often fact of life, very common, and it happens often in in the Computer business, with Internet Service Providers, in  Real estate and even with new home contractors now as well sadly,  and I  have often witnessed it myself.. and pretentious self regulating boards, governments  are mostly useless too, and it is basically too costly to get a lawyer, it only makes the lawyer’s richer, so now the best way to deal with any breach of contract  is to  expose the bad guys to all, to the news media  and thus really put them out of business.. and I have done that even with major corporations successfully now too.. ”

Top 10 Reasons to Avoid Breaching a Contract
10. YOUR BUSINESS REPUTATION. You could damage your reputation in the business community. 9. YOUR BUSINESS RELATIONSHIPS. You could sever your business relationship with the other party. 8. LAWSUITS. You could be sued. 7. TIME AWAY FROM YOUR BUSINESS. If sued, you could be forced to spend valuable time away from your business in order to respond to discovery requests, attend depositions, and litigate the matter in court. 6. LEGAL FEES. You could incur significant legal fees. 5. SPECIFIC PERFORMANCE. Depending on the nature of the contract, you could be ordered by the court to perform your obligations under the contract. 4. CONTEMPT. If you don’t obey the court’s order, you could be held in contempt, fined, and/or imprisoned. 3. COMPENSATORY AND CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES. You could be forced to pay money damages to the nonbreaching party, in an amount that puts that party in as good a position as it would have been in were it not for the breach. 2. PUNITIVE DAMAGES. You could be ordered to pay punitive damages, which are not limited by the amount of the other party’s losses and can be very significant. 1. YOU LOSE ALL THE WAY AROUND. You could end up spending much more time, money, and mental and physical energy resolving the breach than you would have spent performing your obligations under the contract.” http://smallbusiness.findlaw.com/business-forms-contracts/business-forms-contracts-overview/business-forms-contracts-overview-avoid-breaching.html  ”

“I was surprised this week when a Bell employee from Bell’s accounting department told me on the phone that I should obey, do everything that the Bell president, and  his employee Sasha Rollins tells me to do. Dream on.  Bluntly I replied to the same employee “who the hell does he Sasha Rollins  now think his e really is that I should obey anything, or everything  he says, he firstly is not my master, I do not work for Bell, I am not his employee”.. Bell is getting carried away with their much too many, unenforceable,  exotic, extreme, man made rules now, but they breached my contract still much to often and that itself is really inacceptable still too.  Clearly Bell and their  executive power has falsely now gone to their heads when they even do think they can abuse any others, an ordinary citizen now too. I as a Sympatico customer that does have a contract with Bell, a mutual contract they Bell now also have to respect and that contract now does not make me their slave, subordinate, and them my master, but they are still my legal equals in the matters. They have to respect my contract side now too. Do remind them all of that too at Bell.”

.

The federal, provincial governments, the CRTC, Conservatives, Liberals  unfairly maintaining  archaic, monopolistic telecommunication firms, that are often   bloated, cost ineffective, incompetent, over staffed, un-competitively managed as well is the main reasons consumer costs falsely keep on going up now. 

.

And do see also
 .
It has always confounded me as to why the liars, crooks, deceivers, abusers  too often do still do think they can get away with now, next and forever.
.
FOR WE TEND TO KNOW THAT THEY THE CROOKS, ABUSERS TOO,  NOW ARE NOT ABOUT TO STOP THEIR WRONG DOINGS. RATHER THEY WILL NEXT EVEN ESCALATE, CONTINUE IN THEM. AND THAT IS ANOTHER VALID REASON  THEY DO NEED TO BE EXPOSED, PROSECUTED AND STOPPED. EVEN FOR THE GOOD OF US ALL.

And

Why does Bell lie about what it does, wants to do still?  
 
 Me I have the decency to first complain to BellSympatico , to tell them honestly, openly what I am going to post on my site next about them too, at least they were pre-warned by me.
  
Firstly I merely have substantiated here how many others now do also like me feel about Sympatico Bell’s secrecy, under handiness, definite internet contract violations, lies… I support in detail  my side of the truth, story too.  I am not alone who complains to Bell often and loudly  and still what surprises me is that Bell wrongfully thought it could get away with al of their bad acts to me and others in the first place..Do notice that no one from Bell has send me a copy of my last six months billing or proof I had requested any contract changes, new equipment as well, and no one had phoned me back this week from Bell again now too.. now why was that? They had lied and had promised they would.  So it is no wonder so many people today are really rightfully upset at Bell, not just me.Bell getting me more upset is the wrong thing for Bell to try to do, I just get louder, do write thousands more letters to news editors, electric officials still too..  They Bell should by now know I too can escalate the matters and not back down.. Bell still does needs to adequately deal wiht me, reply to me before it gets worse for them and they lose thousands more customers..

I paid Bell for unlisted, unlimited download and they did not supply it to me, Bell did not even have the honestly to originally tell the truth to all and to beforehand say that they were capping it now as well.. Bell they done it first in secret, and were thus wrongfully violating my personal privacy in the process too.   Talking about Bell’s balance reply Bell they have only one reply basically and It is take it or leave it.. I have another.. I rightfully object!   but me I also do fight back in writing and let the whole world know how the snakes in the dark operate in the darkness, and the darkness hates the light to be revealed upon it still too. Bell loses many many customers now too as a result of these exposures of how Bell operates.

 

 

Even my neighbors when they read the newspaper can see the positive influence that I have had on the elected officials, news media in regard to Bell’s undeniable bad services, bad acts and my neighbours they all agree with me on this too… I am doing a good thing exposing Bell.  Bell should not fight with someone retired like me, for I have plenty of free time , and a desire to pursue it with everyone even more next too, and it will be costly for Bell too.  I told them beforehand in writing the war with Bell will escalate NEXT TOO and it did, it has, they have a lot more to lose than I have in all of this too…  I do really look like a good guy in many people’s eyes standing up against the Bell bullies and liars.

Beyond the shadow of the doubt the articles posted here next by me showed that Bell ‘s Internet  capping reasons were false, unsubstantiated, and so I still rightfully object to Bell capping my net to all too.

 Why does Bell lie about what it does, wants to do still?   

  2 days respond time from Bell? is a joke.. I have waited weeks just to try to get an official copy of my Bell Sympatico billings this year..

Ironically the real basic Hog is greedy Bell firstly too who is trying to make loads more money from it’s internet services by playing dirty and changing the contract rules without my approval

Bell has mislead us all as to why Bell has been Throttling the internet.
” 20% of traffic comes from P2P applications
During peak-load times, 70% of subscribers use http.
Only 20% are using P2P
Http still makes up most of the total traffic, of which 45% is traditional web content including text and images.
Streaming video and audio content from services such as YouTube account for nearly 50% of the http traffic.
AStreaming content such as TV shows and YouTube is on the rise.
This clearly shows the “bandwidth hogs” are, in fact, ordinary, average http users during peak time, and NOT Bell’s fictitious 5% of “heavy” P2P users” who suck up around 50% of the total available bandwidth.
Bell also tries to say only 5% of surfers use P2P or even know what P2P is.
These data do not support the claims made by Bell, which admits its data were collected in April over a year ago —- and in another country.
So in effect, what Bell has done is to pick a protocol and application they decided were expendable, with no supporting current evidence or data on their network, also unilaterally deciding for their wholesale customers (who are also their competition) what applications they’ll block.
This should be a warning for everyone to wake up to the fact Bell is throttling anything and everything it pleases, and since streaming video (YouTube and TV shows) is high on the list, this will surely be next on their list of items to be throttled.
Since it’s now obvious that, contrary to Bell’s claims, P2P isn’t the real target (since its not really that heavy on the network during peak time), what’s the real reason for the company to install and apply technology able to open and inspect packets? (And, by the way, it can also retain logs.)
Is it to delay upgrades?
Is it to peak into people’s private packets?
Is it to gather data on users and the users of the competition?
Is it because P2P is now mainstream (20% of the users, not 5% as proclaimed by Bell) and growing by 100% yearly?
Is it a way for Bell to lower their peak-time bandwidth costs and at the same time prevent its own users from jumping ship to the competition?
But hey! Don’t take my word for it; take Arbor Networks, the maker of the throttling machines Bell could be using!
Meanwhile, check out CAIP’s second submission to the CRTC.

In secret, and unofficially “Bell commenced the throttling of competitor traffic at precisely the same time that it decided to eliminate the last vestiges of its retail unlimited Internet usage plans. And that was obvious to me and I had told everyone that too.. that Bell has not been open and transparent in how they have abused their customers. Unacceptable

“Bell’s own customers, Canadian Net users and smaller ISPs have become allies in a bid to force telco giant Bell Canada to stop using P2P file sharers as an excuse to shackle bandwidth. Called traffic shaping or throttling, the corporate ‘management’ action not only severely restricts services users have paid for, it also impacts net neutrality and prevents online freedom of speech, say critics. Leading the attack against the practice has been CAIP (Canadian Association of Internet Providers) representing more than 50 independent internet service providers who, not at all incidentally, are also Bell clients. One of them, TekSavvy, based in Ontario, has organised a rally on Parliament Hill in Ottawa to force politicians to pay attention to customer needs. The date set for the rally is May 15 “This will be for net neutrality, which will bring the Bell topic in, but will have a much larger goal,” company CEO Rocky Gaudrault “Net neutrality hits a public nerve. But it’s not really a stand-alone. There are many overlapping issues here. I’ve mentioned privacy, choice and ISP transparency, but there are many other aspects.” In the view of CAIP, Bell has failed to establish a rational connection between its throttling practices to any legitimate or pressing objective of any kind and the corresponding effect of these practices on competitors and their end-user customers has been at once targeted and overly broad. By Bell’s own admission: Bell is deliberately reducing the speed and throughput of a local access service (i.e., GAS) that is used by interconnected competitors to provide a wide variety of retail telecommunications services to their end-user customers, including remote LAN access services, voice over Internet Protocol (“VoIP”) services, virtual private network (“VPN”) services, streaming audio and video services, data exchange services, and high speed Internet access services. Bell has engaged in these throttling practices without providing a shred of evidence that its network is congested or that its GAS customers are the specific cause of any alleged network congestion. Bell commenced these throttling practices without providing competitors with any notice of its intention to throttle or “shape” their traffic and without providing competitors with any opportunity to test the impact of Bell’s traffic shaping technology on the services that competitors deliver to their end-user customers.

Bell’s campaign of throttling competitors traffic was initiated at precisely the same time that it decided to stop offering an unlimited usage plan to its retail Internet customers – a decision, which Bell knew might cause its retail customers to migrate to the unlimited usage plans of competitors.

There is also uncontradicted evidence, as particularized at paragraph 56 herein, that strongly suggests that the reasons behind Bell’s decision to throttle its competitors’ GAS traffic have little to do with Bell’s unsubstantiated claims of “network congestion” and more to do with a desire to lessen competition in retail telecommunications markets. There are far too many “coincidences” between the timing of the initiation of Bell’s throttling practices and the timing of a number of other events in order to conclude otherwise.”

“Failure to Provide Notice of Network Changes CAIP notes that Bell has chosen not to directly address in its Answer its failure to “notify” its competitors of its intention to implement network modifications that could affect the operation of other carriers’ networks. Bell. It has made changes to its network without notification. No information was provided to its wholesale customers as to exactly what changes Bell has made. CAIP’s members have been subjected to unexpected network disruptions, their network users were affected without notice, and Bell failed to provide them with the opportunity to examine the proposed change, conduct joint testing and take action as required before the change came into effect.16
In addition, the reality of Bell’s “willingness to work” is far less encouraging. Since March 14, 2008, the only notice that Bell appears to have issued to its wholesale customers in relation to its throttling measures is a two-page document entitled “DSL Traffic Management – Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)”. By way of response, CAIP can advise that this “FAQ” document was not received by all of its members who subscribe to Bell’s GAS. Moreover, the document was sent out more than one month after Bell commenced the throttling of its competitors’ traffic which is hardly responsive given Bell’s duties to provide advance notice of network changes to its competitors. Perhaps more troubling, however, is the fact that Bell’s FAQ document is almost entirely bereft of any technical details regarding its traffic shaping equipment and network protocols. Moreover, when asked to provide this type of information, Bell has been extremely evasive and short on technical details. This is not acceptable state of affairs.

Bell’s Actions Constitute an Undue and Unreasonable Preference Granted to Itself and a Disadvantage Applied to Competitors In addition, Bell suggests that the following alleged facts somehow minimise the illegality or deleterious effect of its traffic-shaping measures: throttling is “applied only during peak usage periods” and “only applied to P2P file sharing applications”;

“it has not been presented with any evidence that its Internet traffic management solution is having any impact on VPN or VoIP traffic.22

New media content available on the Internet is often delivered using P2P protocol. So regardless of whether it is streaming content or not, it is clear that new media undertakings are seriously affected by Bell’s decision to target all content delivered using P2P protocols.

Bell commenced the throttling of competitor traffic at precisely the same time that it decided to eliminate the last vestiges of its retail unlimited Internet usage plans. 30 Bell’s 2007 Annual Report indicates that it knew that the discontinuance of such plans might cause its retail customers to migrate to the unlimited usage plans of its competitors.31

Bell commenced the throttling of competitor traffic at the very same time that it launched a massive mailing campaign to its home phone customers that is intended to promote its retail Internet access service, a service that is described by Bell’s billing insert as offering “super fast access speeds” of up to 16 Mbps. This mailing campaign also states that Bell’s Internet services provide a “Direct, uncongested gateway to the Internet” over a “brand new, next-generation fibre optic network”.32 Bell does not offer a 16 Mbps speed to competitors under either its GAS or HSA tariffs. The fastest speed available to competitors under these tariffs is 6 Mbps.33 .

This aspect of Bell’s wholesale throttling activities gives rise a serious issue that Bell’s actions violate the privacy of the communications of its wholesale customers as well as that of their end-user customers.

BELL’S TRAFFIC SHAPING MEASURES ARE CAUSING IRREPARABLE HARM

Bell does not deny that reduced data transfer speeds could harm its competitors.

The fact that there is no legitimate and pressing basis for Bell’s throttling actions and therefore, no overriding interest, either private or public, that favours withholding the interim relief requested by CAIP;

Even if there was any evidence of a legitimate and pressing basis for Bell’s throttling actions, their effect is at once so overbroad, discriminatorily and it outweighs any inconvenience to Bell of returning to the status quo ex ante; and

To the contrary, an overriding public interest in:

(iii)The protection of privacy;

(iv)The inviolability and neutrality of telecommunications common carriage;

(v)Maintaining respect for the enactments of Parliament;

(vi)Enforcing the Commission’s tariffs and policies, such as the Commission’s Notification of Network Changes policies strongly tilts the balance of convenience in favour of granting the interim relief sought by CAIP.

As discussed above, there is no legitimate, competitively neutral basis for the measures undertaken by Bell. Rather, at this point, the evidence points to the conclusion that the most rational explanation for the reasons that Bell undertook the throttling measures are purely commercial and relate directly to a desire to decrease competition in the downstream retail market.

The Public Interest Would be Protected by a Return to the Status Quo Ex Ante

How the citizens are seeing it
 
One step forward and two steps backwards seem how the Conservatives in Ottawa  get ahead still even with their advertising strategies.. and can you believe it the Tories still have the nerve to divert their own sins, immoral acts by bashing the Liberals still? “There is a principle that applies to all facets of our common law that you can’t do indirectly what is expressly prohibited directly.” Tories need to look at themselves firstly still too.
 
Neither party is doing much to impress the voters  Vancouver Sun,  Canada - This isn’t new — which speaks to Stephen Harper’s disinclination to react constructively to criticism. Polls consistently have sent a message that Harper
 
New Democrats cashing in on Liberals’ indecisiveness   Toronto Star,  Canada - 4 An NDP fundraising appeal that asked, “Who will stand up to Stephen Harper’s agenda?” proved a winner for the party. “We’ll stand in our places and vote
 
Federal politics: Is there any daylight ahead? RALPH SURETTE   TheChronicleHerald.ca, Canada - For the Harper Tories, the authoritarianism and underhanded manipulation is part of the manual. They can’t help it.
 
“The Conservatives has the worst communications strategy I’ve observed in 30 years of chronicling the actions of governments across Canada. Conservatives cultivate an image as a stern and secretive bunch . The next election promises to be a crapshoot. And only fools will put big money on one party or the other winning the next minority government. ” “As for the Liberals, things being what they are, they’ll come to power, tentatively, sometime.” and who says it will be even an improvement?  ” The New Democrats remain saddled with their age-old Achilles Heel – the tendency of their supporters to bolt to the Liberals on election day in hopes of defeating the Conservatives.”
 
“During the 2006 election campaign, the Tories moved $1.2 million from their cash-rich national campaign in and out of 67 local campaigns across the country, so that it would appear on the books of the local campaigns, rather than on the books at headquarters. The party bought all the advertising from a private company, Retail Media, rather than having local campaigns buy it, as the Elections Act requires. Early in the campaign, an official with Retail Media e-mailed the Tories to express the concern that this may not be legal and suggested that the Elections Canada broadcasting arbitrator be consulted. The party told him not to do so. It looks like the Tories did not want to check with Elections Canada to see if their creative accounting procedures would be acceptable to the agency.  Also, according to court documents, at least one invoice submitted by a local campaign appears to have been altered with whiteout, seemingly to create the impression that the local campaign was being billed separately. This has led the Liberals to call for a forgery and fraud investigation by the RCMP.”
 
“OTTAWA–Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s Conservatives are losing voters’ support – a trend accelerated by the RCMP raid last week on Tory headquarters, according to a Toronto Star/ Angus Reid poll released today.  The Conservatives stand at 33 per cent support across Canada, a loss of three percentage points since a similar poll in March. A majority of those polled – 58 per cent – believe that the Conservatives’ credibility has been damaged by their ongoing dispute with Elections Canada over the so-called “in and out” financing of the last election, which resulted in the RCMP raid of party headquarters more than a week ago. Even in Alberta, a bastion of Conservative support, a majority – 51 per cent – believe the party’s credibility has been eroded. “

“There’s irony in the notion that the Harper government finds itself under the gun over its election advertising . Political advertising has played a pivotal role in the Conservative party’s rising fortunes, and persists as the party’s preferred means of communicating with the public. But advertising lately has become a headache for the party, being forced to account for its spending on national ads during the 2006 election… the Conservatives won the last election in large part by being paragons of propriety, making accountability legislation a cornerstone of their election platform. The squeaky clean image was designed to contrast with the tarnish on the Liberal brand following the Quebec sponsorship scandal… Stephen Harper has embraced the mantra “playing by the rules.” His party, he asserts, is the one that represents Canadians who play by the rules. Yet here the Conservatives are accused of grabbing unfair advantage through a secretive scheme involving cash transfers between national and local Conservative campaigns… “

“Advertising is important to the Conservatives because they’ve experienced difficulty communicating by other means. The PM has alienated the Ottawa press corps and shied away from both formal news conferences and impromptu scrums. He appears before media mostly in photo ops, with no questions permitted. In addition, journalists, following the 2006 vote, were restricted in their access to the Centre Block area where the cabinet meets and Harper’s ministers often appear muzzled. With advertising, Conservatives have found that they can tightly control scripting and visuals to achieve their communications goals. And, having perfected the art of fundraising under tighter political financing rules, the party has been flush with money to spend on the favoured communications tool.  Conservatives raised four times more money than Liberals in 2007 –about $12 million — which helped them finance a prominent series of ads  Unfortunately for the Conservatives, ensuring such advertising supremacy over the Liberals required the circuitous financial machinations that now threaten the party’s reputation.”

The Tories spins are too late, the damage has been done, again and again.. and fighting with the news media who tend to represent the Citizens firstly is a stupid mistake for any politician, party.

Subject: it is no secret why Stephen Harper and Stephen Dion are not more popular with the citizens
I also do agree it is no secret why Stephen Harper and Stephen Dion are not more popular with the citizens.. it seems both of them are really deaf too.
 
Majority of the voters are still just the ordinary basic citizens who really do care if the governments does look after the citizen’s own interests, and  not rather mainly after the selective few.  
 
Yes most People still do watch even you as to how you. and I do treat others,  how the government threats others, for they know that is likely how they will be treated next too.
 
Now for 25 years I have rightfully complained that the government has not dealt with, addressed many of the  the basic citizens complaints such as -
1: The bad Canadian cops , bad RCMP who rarely are punished for abusing the citizen, their internal cover-up police reviews are an unacceptable farce.
2: Consumer affairs protection is another pretentious joke, and we have seen that illustrated too often how little is being done about false, misleading advertising, especially now in regards to the big Bully Bell.
3  But also now there are many other related past citizens complaints, the citizens had been led to hope, to believe they would be addressed by the new Conservative.. but were sadly disappointed..  such as those too often pretentious and inadequate still civil and public servants in Health Canada, Foreign Affairs and in Immigration Canada now too.. and even bad civil and public servants in other governmental departments..
 
The self serving leaders, rather still pretentious, bad managers,  and  bad governments, are too transparent to get the citizens full support still too and rightfully so too.

9:58 AM
 
To my Witness the following happened on my Bell unlimited, 6 meg high speed account, and I have been with Bell for many years for a start.. I want Bell to honour all of their past promises to me.

 
1 Firstly what is there here to understand now, it is all simple, Bell for months, years now lies to me even in their adds, on the phone, on the net, by chat.. I Phone them, write to them and I make posts here, and they next do say sorry but Bell they do not keep their promises, and/or deal with my complaints fully, adequately too. Facts posted in detail on about 12 internet sites for all to read. It is all undeniable too. http://thenoncomformer.spaces.live.com /2 They Bell, Executive Care Sasha Rollins still do send me 3 letters to my home in the last 9 months by mail, Bell had threatened in writing to cut of my phone, my internet account if I complain about Bell to any others. Next me, the news media, the Prime Minister too, strongly objected to this approach by Bell. I next often tell Bell to go to court, for I need the publicity, for that is the only way they are going to be paid for Bell’s false extra changes, contract violations too. If they cut of my internet or send me lying Bills, lying phone calls I will charge them with harassment next as well.So BELL in the last month mostly does not even reply to my emails except to phone me at home and say a person at the highest level has been appointed to deal with it, he had phoned me at home, and all of my complaints had be resolved, but this is a great lie, for when I ask all of them for the name of the person no one knows who it is, or what his name is. I ask for his phone number and they refuse to give it to me. I still have not got an official confirmation of any of this still too after many requests too. My past Contact officially with BELL SASHA ROLLINS HE EVEN DID NOT RETURN ONE PHONE CALL TO HIM THIS YEAR, NOR REPLY TO MANY MANY EMAILS, AND HE HAS NOT DEALT WITH ALL OF THESE DETAILED COMPLAINTS ABOUT MY BILLING ACCOUNT, LINE PROBLEMS, BELLS MANY LIES AS WELL.

3 The last many months too I specially as well have not been able to access my Bell on line Billing , to even see, get my monthly billing for months, so I phoned them about a month ago specially too and Bell still will not send me an official copy of them.. and does that fact alone not make you really su****ious of Bell? why are they doing that now? Waiting for a CRTC hearing presently ongoing to be able to screw me officially? or waiting for me to leave Bell on my own? OR WHAT? DO TELL ME.

4 I was on a high-speed unlimited contract and someone at Bell changed it to who knows what, for they never gave me confirmation of what I was even changed to yet now as well. and I have asked them many times too.. and why.. they lie.. and don’t tell me what you think happened here.. confirm it officially.

5 Because someone changed me to another plan, and I was given the name and number of the Bell employee by Bell accounting now too, next I also got a rather huge bill upwards of 250$ for bandwidth charges. Meanwhile SOME ONE AT BELL ACCOUNTING sends me unofficial, unsigned partial billing statements, supposed new contract, but it is so vague, useless.. all it says is I agree to a Bell internet service! no terms specified. Bell will not even confirm when my supposedly old contract had started and stopped as well.. why?

6 Plus someone at Bell lied and said I wanted this year an upgraded modem and charged me 55 dollars for it too.. and I never was even requested it or told about it..

7. My internet has been cutting off intermittently (a sign of Bell’s external wiring problem). continued

 
  Re: The Paul Kambulow Topic
9:59 AM
 
8 Plus 3/4 weeks my speeds fluctuated from 1 to 6 megs and they were not a steady 5- 6 megs9 Plus Bell capped my bit torrents without telling me too.10. My speeds have been fluctuating (a sign of a wiring problem and/or a sign of the profile being changed by Bell continually too.. I get different answers from Bell to what my speed profile was even under the old Unlimited contract.11. Although since January 2007 I have been complaining about my slow internet last July I found out Bell really had no high speed line at all in my area, we all here had been for years paying for high speed and next we got only al low speed line in fact12 So Bell in August 2007 out me on a Fiber optical cable at 6 megs, and promised me 3 months free service too.. It last one month, and they they broke their promise and demanded an extra 74 dollars per month in September from me for the 6 meg unlimited..

13 So next In December Bell Sasha Rollins agrees to six months free internet at 6 megs and unlimited downloads in writing.. and this last only for 3 weeks.. the speed profiles next do change generally during the last week of January, February, March 2008 and 3 weeks of complaining they bring it back up.

14: I also have been having disconnect problems that the last 9 months too when it rains

15 I have been having new capping on my email send outs the last 9 months too

14 This problem Bell internet services has been going on for many many months and so in March I ask them to pay me the 6 months free internet as promised plus an extra 500 dollars too for someone else’s mistake.

And if they continue to hassle me about this I will rightfully demand one year free internet service, and 1000 extra.

15 In the last 9 months I had my modem replaced 7 times, I had 7 repairmen in my home, I talked to 7 Bell expediters at the executive care including Sasha Rollins, and still get screwed by Bell’s ongoing lies, Bell’s contract violations, failure to keep their promises too.

16 Instead of giving me 6 months of promised 6 megs unlimited free internet Bell next credits the account for 304 dollars, next cancels the credit, next reinstalls the credit, and meanwhile Bell even falsely tries to take more money from my pre authorized payment bank account even twice in one month causing an 75 dollars Bank over draft, when I was on the free 6 months plan, plus had a credit here for it too. Now they have to pay me back the 75 dollars too rightfully

17 I often get a phone calls at my home from supervisors in India, or Accounting too, or Bell executive carte who say they will resolve all my complaints and call me back the next day, even from a new person this week, but they do not call me back firstly, never mind deal with all of my complaints, demands too.

18. Yes I rightfully want the bandwidth charges removed for 2008 till we both agree upon a new contract, payments right now there is no official contract, and thus have no right to take any money from by pre authorized bank account for it too..

19. I want any costs incurred, due to me leaving Bell to go elsewhere to be paid by Bell as well for I had told bell in December I would rather go to their competitions at 19 dollars per moth, for one year, 5 megs speed, unlimited download and they asked me not to do so.. based on their false, dirtied promises.

20. I am still on regular high-speed plan, unlimited for no one gave them person to change it FIRSTLY, NOR HAD BELL NOTIFIED ME OF ANY CHANGES TO IT OFFICIALLY TOO.21 . I still want copies of your bills for the past 6-months so you can scrutinize them to see if there is any other money you may have over-paid. and there wasHave I missed anything? yes many other rightful complaints about Bell too, manyFederal Consumer affairs Minister Jim Prentice last year had promised to prosecute Bell Sympatico for false misleading advertising to me, The Quebec Minister of Fiancé ME Forget promises to review the matter and get back to me as well.. and where are the results here too? etc..,,

(She  MLA Monique Forget had to unfortunately resign from political  life first  because of another financial scandal invoving the Quebec Pension Fund..)

Telling it as it is.

The final responsibility for the Canadian Tory party mistakes here rests with the Prime Minister Stephen Harper as it’s leader.

The fox has been caught stealing, killing chickens in the hen house and now he next says that is not true, for he is different from the other bad foxes. Tories are playing up victim angle. An experienced Christian Missionary Alliance missionary pastor Rev John Fitzstevens, the same church denomination now as Stephen Harper,  had personally  told me 35 years ago in Canada that two clearly immoral fund raising techniques used by the too often  crooked, bad pastors were  firstly to claim they were different, unique in doctrine, behavior from the rest of the churches, pastors. Next the same  pastors,   cry wolf, claim they are falsely being persecuted and they do  ask for more donations, financial support. The bad Calgary Christian center Church, now closed, the bad  pastor there had used this approach, the pastor of  Don Ron Ministries as well and many others as I had witnessed. It clearly seems Stephen Harper is no different here too. And when I next personally had looked into the actual behavior in detail of many of the bad Canadian Evangelical pastors who definitely had been using this misleading approach they were also clearly guilty of abusing next the donations they had received as well. For the Crooks tend not to change their behaviors.
 
The sly fox had preached the moral high ground but he next did not live it too!
The wise elderly pastor was right in the guidance he had given me.
 

There is no doubt that Canadians still do expect all elections to be fought fairly in accordance with the rules. The final responsibility for Tory party mistakes here rests with Stephen Harper as it’s leader. And that is similar thing  they have said in the past to the Liberals too .The hypocritical, unrepentant, arrogant, very bad Prime Minister Stephen Harper clearly seems to wrongfully forget still that the federal Tories first refused to co-operate with a parliamentary committee trying to investigate the in and out  fraud, scheme, and then its headquarters declined to provide documents to Elections Canada. Also next selectively spinning, releasing information flowing from the RCMP search warrant can rightfully be seen as entirely too self-serving and not in the interest of the the broader issue of fairness in election spending. This is all now really indefensible behavior  in the face of the Conservative Party’s own  lying, hypocritical, double standard  antiscandal, honesty, accountability, transparency  election campaign. “Honesty, cooperation, and “Transparency should be the first choice, not the last. And that’s particularly true when the issue involves the expenditure of public funds,” past promises and public trust. That is still how most people in the east see it too and rightfully so.

and I am not asking you for any donations, money Period

Hidden agendas, the world is full of it, many people have hidden agendas, Pastors, Ministers, politicans, cops  too. Sadly some people they tend  present their own “facts,” but fall short in truthfulness  for they tend to falsely  have a hidden agenda, and often they want to be falsely personally worshipped and live in sin too.
 
Is 2:22 Cease to trust in [weak, frail, and dying] man, whose breath is in his nostrils [for so short a time]; in what sense can he be counted as having intrinsic worth?

For certainty also because of the demonic opposition the devil will try to discourage you from finding out reading about the Holy spirit, Charismatics, Pentecostals and the Bible. I know I have experienced this myself the last  40 years. So my sites will reflect, show you what I have learned, found out on these subjects for a start.
