, etc., so I can really , directly, experientially notice when there is a internet web Brower connectivity access problem, variation.
I am really having a hard time how Bell who had advertised itself as the most reliable internet service provider and also the fastest now could thus be having problems in delivering their internet web Brower connectivity services to me when I do not live in the sticks, in some remote village but I live in the second largest city in Canada, Montreal.
For instance I had noticed WordPress.com Network problems knocked more than 10 million Word Press blogs offline in a two hour outage on 18 February. But this was only a short, two hour break and not a regular occurrence like I am having with many other of regular sites access….WordPress.com said the problem was caused by a core router change at one of its data centre providers which “broke the site” and security was not an issue and that the site had not been hacked or hit by a denial of service attack, yet even here there are now access delays
I HAVE LONG DELAYS IN ACCESSING MANY of my regular even NETWORK SITES THESE DAYS. I had many DIFFICULTIES IN REACHING THIS BBC SITE MANY TIMES TOO
No one in the GOVERNMENTS, NEWS MEDIA,., CONSUMER PROTECTION AGENCIES has yet even satisfactory addressed my basic complaints, concerns, issues here. Why is that? Public exposure and prosecution of the unrepentant guilty persons, corporations still always also serves everyone’s best interest
Note this Dec 2010 I am still having the same problme ii had complained about months ago yoo to Bell- Acanac.
Canadian internet slow, expensive: Harvard CBC.ca - Canada ranks 19th out of 30 countries in broadband internet after measures such as speed and price are taken into account. (Jim Hannon/Associated Press) A new report from Harvard University says that contrary to what the CRTC had said. A new report from Harvard University says that contrary to what the CRTC states, Canada has some of the slowest and most expensive internet access in the developed world. Canada placed in the middle of the pack in terms of speeds offered but fared poorly in pricing, ranking 18th out of 30 for current-generation internet and 18th out of 19 for next-generation speeds, which are 35 megabits or faster. An editorial in the Globe and Mail on Monday said the federal government needs to take immediate action to stop Canada’s sliding position in broadband. Affordable, higher-speed internet access is necessary for Canadians to remain competitive with the rest of the world, the newspaper said. “If we do not act with haste, the innovations that could employ our future work force could well pass us by.” “Greed set in, plain and simple” ” So true. We have an internet service that runs on BS.” “I think we are all aware that we are being ripped off internet providers, but we are also being ripped off by phone and cable and satelite providers. Wait a minute…. the same companies provide all these services. What a rip off. Time for a formal inquiry.” ” disband the crtc” ” What a joke the CRTC is. ” ”The CRTC is just a front for big business. Fire them. “
Canada Mirrors US Broadband Policy, Gets Same Crap Results Dslreports We’ve watched Canada’s biggest carriers grow more powerful, while independent Canadian ISPs slowly have been fighting for their life. Canadian regulators like the CRTC, stocked with former Bell and Rogers executives, have repeatedly ignored anticompetitive attacks on small carriers. Regulators have tried to prevent wireless competitors from entering the market because they weren’t Canadian enough (aka protectionism). Cable’s biggest carriers are happily now imposing ridiculously low caps and high per gigabyte overages, while Canada’s falling down the rankings in terms of price per MB, speed, and broadband penetration.
