Bell, BCE shares plunge 12% after court ruling still needs to see how it’s customers do see Bell too…Why is it that even so many managers and their subordinates too falsely believe they will not reap what they sow now, the bad things they do included?
“Bell is well over its glory days, and comparing to other operators around the world, it is a mediocre buy at that price. they have been caught sleeping at the wheel too often and not being fair to its customers too often too. They should do their homework first, build on solid ‘sound’ principles first and then see if somebody is willing to put money into it. For now it is simply a purchase of a skeleton out of tune with the industry and a history of burning up good Canadian talent at the expense of the shareholders, and at contempt for the bona fide user. Bell go back to your core business and do a good job and then its time will come. I am glad I own no teachers fund equity.”“I see Bell Canada as an out-of-date behemoth. I recently paid my last ever bill to Bell Canada something I vowed to do in 1999 after realizing just how bad my Bell Canada abuse their land line customers. Recently, at long last, my internet provide, a cable co. began to offer phone over cable in my area. ‘Bell have two very odd charges that add up to a lot of money. And at that, they are of course taxed making it worse:1) Network Access Fee. What is this? Why do we have to pay a fee to access the service that is offered as the landline. This is simply a naked cash grab.2) Touch Tone fee of $2.80. Bell Canada’s switches have been “modernized” for over 20 years where the switch circuit can equally take pulse (rotary dial) and tone dialing. Whether you operate a touchtone phone or a rotary dial, it makes absolutely no cost difference to Bell Canada. However, where about 13 M Canadian lines are paying touch-tone service, this amounts to a naked cash grab of $500M per year for Bell Canada.My Bell Canada landline was $28.69 with Bell Canada. My Videotron cable phone is $16.95 for identical level of service.That works out to a hair under $160/year with taxes.Over 2M Canadians now have cable based phone. Most of those were former Bell Canada customers.
I will not miss Bell Canada at all. The Ontario Teachers’ Pension Fund should look very carefully at what it is that they are buying.”Undeniably a lot of people hate do Bell, many past dissatisfied customers who also do undeniably also vent their anger at the government’s, CRTC past poor inactions here too.When Bell misleads, lies and says it has the fastest internet speed in Canada that does not mean every home has that speed firstly, or continually for that matter too. Also be honest and fair when Bell lies and distorts it’s advertised internet downloads speed as being up to 7 megs, maximum, rather Bell should honestly say it’s downloads speeds are a minimum of 1.1 megs or more.These comments above by others even do confirm what I have openly said before too that Bell has not only abused their past land line customers, and their internet customers because Bell still has much too many unacceptable poor executives, managers who do falsely abuse their customers, and Bell does try to make any false cash grabs from the customers, or rather plain old fashion thefts from the customers, that they can and much too often? I have also clearly said before too that Bell cannot be trusted. Bell needs to be fully regulated. And I have also rightly said someone should tell the Ontario school teachers’ what a bad deal buying Bell is and that is now being done too.BCE now looking to the Supreme Court for help instead of looking at itself, it’s poor mangers is another absurdity or Bell threatening to sue me, cutting of my Sympatico internet for telling the truth about Bell to others too is another unacceptable absurdity now too!!Bell has only itself to blame for all of this, not anyone else, especially not the users, customers.Just a reminder. There are many basic reasons for a Corporation’s downfall. Besides having selected bad, over paid or underpaid executives, managers, employees firstly there is the management style itself., which can include theft and/or abusing the customers too, over pricing too. Now I am not alone, just one of many in these observations too. A firms starts to abuse the customers. so it’s sales volume and profitability reduces, so to compensate they often do a false survey, generally false cause they have no intention of facing up to their own negative contributions, basic truths, and/or the blame it on others, unions, interest rates, banks, courts even.. sound recently familiar? So what do they generally do, well they tighten their belts, get rid of some of the employees, the fish begins to rots from the head, but they tend to cut of the tail first, and it still really does not help. So the bad Corporation managers they tighten the belt some more, they now offer less services to the customers, and increase the pricing too? Sound familiar? Look at how Bell Sympatico had responded to their competitors, their internet services this year and the significant negative feedback, reaction they got too from their customers. The fact that Bell Sympatico, and Rogers too now in the last year have been the most hated, the most negatively discussed topic, corporations on Canada’s internet is undeniable too. Just also look at Bell’s higher pricing over the competition, and it now still also explains why Bell is at war also with it’s competitors and not just the customers too, and why Bell has undeniably so many dissatisfied customers now too. So the Corporations common solution of jacking up the prices, cutting back on the customer services of course predictably next it even leads to a more dramatic economic loss, loss of their customers, and do you really think they amongst many others executive managers would learn from any of this? Management still had to cut off it’s own head, the bad exemplary executive managers? The Corporation next had kept on on tightening the belt so much that they next choked themselves to death, have come to an irreversible place. All simple too. I have seen the same thing been done by computer resellers, and also by large grocery corporations, such as Super C, Provigo, some managers still never do learn from their mistakes and the whole firm suffers for it, especially next the shareholders.Bell Sympatico next as per the last letter to me, contrary to my rightful objection is falsely going to disconnect my internet services with them as of May 31, 2008 to try to shut me up, they are going to breach my contract with me, and Jim Prentice, Consumer Affairs, did, do not help in these matters to date. I got a useless reply from the federal consumer’s office too before , even from Dussault.Madeleine@cb-bc.gc.ca, l;ike i had said they did not do much good in these matters too to date. How many more citizens will have to wrongfully suffer because of the detail, witnessed Bell’s immoral management before the federal consumer affairs department and CRTC deals with it all adequately and fully now too?Cult (totalistic type): A group or movement exhibiting a great or excessive devotion or dedication to some person, idea, or thing and employing unethically manipulative techniques of persuasion and control (e.g. isolation from former friends and family, debilitation, use of special methods to heighten suggestibility and subservience, powerful group pressures, information management, suspension of individuality or critical judgment, promotion of total dependency on the group and fear of leaving it, etc.), designed to advance the goals of the group’s leaders, to the actual or possible detriment of members, their families, or the community. (West & Langone, 1986, pp. 119-120) and funny how that describes the past reactions of Both Bell and the CRTC to my post as well.. they also both banned me from their own internet sites for my posting the negative truths they do not want others to read..>From: “Prime Minister/Premier ministre” <firstname.lastname@example.org>
