Because even many managers in Canada, the government too  are not honest, do not tell the truth, they often also do lie as to the actual reasons their product prices are going up, and/or the quality of their services are going down, thus they are still helping to put themselves out of work, out of business eventually and to be rightfully dismissed too.

The Canadian Federal Conservative Party  are claiming now they have enemies everywhere too.

So in desperation, they the Conservatives need to do something, anything, the Conservatives are going to rely again on their own dirty tricks campaign, lawsuits or new dirty adds, blitz, and very costly ones, even financially. But in practice that is too too late for the Conservatives, money rather wasted too, for  blood has been spilt, the damage has been done and you cannot take it bad. Canadian sharks smell a loser’s blood  and thus they are  swimming in for the  kill again?

Does Bell Really Have a P2P Bandwidth Problem?


Bell has been fighting its public relations battle on the premise that P2P is a problem that necessitates throttling practices that inconvenience 100 percent of its users, yet its own data suggests that the problem may not be as severe as first thought.”
But firstly can we trust anything self serving Bell says, for Bell bas proven itself to be  an immoral firm, a big liar  too..
Secondly when the citizens, consumers pay for an internet services, they do not need the extra troublesome hassle, extra time and energy  of looking over the shoulder over Ma Bell’s operation, because Bell for sure cannot be trusted to keep their promised obligations.
Thirdly the Federal Conservatives now  crying out foul,  asking for public support in their election Canada fight too.. but this will fall on many deaf ears when the Conservatives have wrongfully been indifferent to the citizens rightful complaint about Bell’s immoral acts too.
The federal Conservative Minister of Consumer affairs Jim Prentice MP has made it clear today to the news media that  he does not care as to how now Bell abuses their customers, and many citizens are bothered by this on the internet as well.

Well Bell accounting screwed it up again too.. They did apply the credit, the 6 months credit in my high speed in my 6 megs unlimited internet download now, as confirmed in writing again to me last week by Executive Sasha Rollins and you got a copy of that letter now too, to my account but some fool at Bell Sympatico Billing took it upon his own to cancel THIS CREDIT, but this credit was reinstated in April 2008 anyway. Meanwhile the same Bell accounting fool tried to enter my preauthorized bank account to steal more money from me thus, and I of course made sure there was no funds in the account to do so, he tried 2 times in 2 days and cause an overdraft Problem .. and next I was billed twice for my subsequent related Bank’s NSF charges of $37.50 each too as Bell billing this afternoon had Bell’s useless Heidi xn157 had confirmed to me. She was useless cause while she about   30 minutes talked to me on the phone, and had me on hold, all while although Bell had asked me to contact her, as a Bell accounting employee  she says she has no authority to deal with any of this detailed facts of mine, and she was looking if she could find someone next to pas this on to, and I will get the ongoing Bell Billing too run around. This is unacceptable Bell rubbish service again too.

So you Bell undeniably now owe me 2 times 37.50 or 75 dollars on top of anything else you owe me. Send me a cheque for it immediately too. Bell is totally to blame cause Bell Accounting they could not adequately handle, resolve their account screw up as I have complained the last ten days in writing to Bell, all now too. Useless Bell.

copy to news editors, MPs, net, etc.,

PS The Bell accounting Supervisor next had refused to talk to me, he says that only the Bell executive department can deal with this screw up.. another buck passer. Heidi asked me if I want the telephone number of the Bell executive? Sasha Rollins? cause they cannot act upon any yet or read the email I had sent to them already still too?   Did you ever hear of any  accounting department in any major firm  unable to deal with the problems the customers were having with their Billings before? Only; the president can deal with the customers problems, complaints? Unbelievable!!!

Here is what really still surprises me Bell is the leader in telecommunications, we have the supper fast internet, emails today, and yet Bell cannot with it’s big organization deal, thousands of personnel now too, it cannot effectivley deal  with my simple questions, problems, and give an adequate replies, results and not hours later, or days later, not even weeks, not even months later.. That alone should tell you something about   bad big Bell firstly.

It does takes Bell Sympatico to really screw things up..

Also since this ISP industry in unregulated then next how can Bell threaten  to take me to court for my posts about how bad they are too? Bell wants it all, both ways, regulated and unregulated as long as Bell can have it all.. this too is absurd too.




The war against Bell

“Web dispute rings Bell

Bell Canada’s newly introduced “traffic shaping” procedures are lengthening the time it takes to transfer music, videos, software and other large files via the Internet, says a Cobourg businessman and head of the Canadian Association of Internet Providers.
This is causing interference between small Internet providers businesses and their customers, Tom Copeland said. And it’s among the reasons the association has filed a complaint about Bell with the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC).
Bell has been given 15 days to reply in the expedited hearing process.
A telephone inquiry from the Evening Guide to Bell’s vice-president of carrier services, John Sweeney, was forwarded to spokesperson Jason Laszlo. He stressed Tuesday that the minority of Bell’s customers use peer-to-peer applications (P2P) for downloading music, video and some business data during peak hours, but the majority of its customers do not. The minority P2P users are using up the bandwidth and impacting Internet use by the majority, he explained. That’s why the traffic shaping has been put in place generally between the hours of 4 p.m. and 2 a.m.
“There is certainly a congestion issue . . . and it’s affecting carriers all across North America,” Mr. Laszlo said.
“We started getting complaints from customers mid-March,” Mr. Copeland said about a problem that has emerged over the past month. “It was a different kind of high-speed complaint,” he said, not the usual trouble with connection, etc.
So association members started to compare notes and question Bell whose representatives were very vague with answers, he said.
Complaints centered on an inordinate delay in downloading information after regular business hours. For example, a movie download that would normally take two hours was taking “up 12 hours to download” between 4 p.m. and 2 p.m. – the time Bell’s new “traffic shaping” practices were imposed on its customers, and more particularly, Internet service providers like Mr. Copeland. Internet traffic is being “choked” by Bell, from whom smaller Internet providers like Mr. Copeland’s Northumbria company, purchase wholesale ADSL high-speed Internet capacity to service their customers.
On March 28, Bell released a letter stating it had undertaken the practice to provide a better Internet experience for those using it between 4 p.m. and 2 a.m., Mr. Copeland said. And it stated Bell will no longer sell unlimited use plans but charge by bandwidth use. However, Bell hasn’t said it has a network problem, he said.
Bell and small Internet service providers like those with the Canadian Association of Internet Providers are in competition, selling internet connections to customers.
Bell had until the end of Tuesday to reply to the complaint and then the association has until next Monday, April 21, to respond, Mr. Copeland said. Because of the impact on customers, and the CRTC’s agreement to expedite the hearing, he is hoping for a decision within 30 days of their response. Normally it takes up to six months. “This is serious,” Mr. Copeland said.
“Bell’s approach to Internet congestion is like slowing down traffic in one lane of Highway 401 so that the others can speed up. That only works for a while. At some time you have to add more concrete.” Changing policies might work for Bell in the short term but continued growth in Internet use is a “natural progression,” Mr. Copeland said.
“We can’t stick our head in the sand and think it’s going to go away.”
 More of what others say..
 “Ottawa (eCanadaNow) – All across Canada consumers and Internet Service Providers (ISP’s) alike are crying out for relief at the traffic interrupting and Internet Traffic Shaping that is occurring. Such actions, critics say, are hurting the consumer and are unfair business practices that should not be occurring.”
You have fallen for Bell’s misinformation campaign.
The issue wasn’t there until Bell decided to make it up. My internet isn’t running any faster and you don’t need 5 Mbps to read your email or chat on instant messaging protocols. Hell, even 56K will suffice for IM.
Bell is in fact claiming that they can wire-tap you at whim and cut off any ‘conversation’ they do not want to occur. This ‘debate’ MUST be “framed” correctly as one of CENSORSHIP and PRIVACY. to those who agree with bell that throttling is needed because we are all sharing the limited resource, let me ask u: how come some european and asian countries can have 10 to 20 times our bandwdith with no throttling at similar monthly fees? before u believe bell, look at what’s going on around world.
The real problem is that Bell has oversold “unlimited internet”, similar to overbooking at airlines. Only Bell has overbooked by 10000% and now they don’t want to build the infrastructure to fulfill their side of the contract. I pay for fixed 2 Gb up/download per month they have no business throttling anything I do when I’m within my limits. Throttling must be made illegal. “Unlimited internet” should no longer be sold. Fixed up/download limits must apply and Bell must build the infrastructure to ensure it has the capacity to fulfill its side of the contract.
Also reseller ISP’s cannot just “slap their own sticker” on Bell’s service. They must pay for connections to Bell’s ADSL equipment, setup their own authentication, and then pay for the outgoing bandwidth as well. Bell charges based on line capacity from the ISP to Bell so you better believe the ISPs pay for whatever their customers use.
Bell is indeed throttling the last-mile and PVC (ATM) traffic. This is called the Gateway Access Service (GAS) and it bought by independent ISPs for approximately $21 per subscriber. These ISPs have their own Internet transit and do not rely on Bell’s IP network connection to the larger Internet.
We have existing regulation giving competitive access to these services, and this was working fairly well. Bell decided they were unwilling to live up to their end of the bargain and decided to throttle the regulated service and go to court to try to claim they shouldn’t be mandated to offer this service. I believe an appropriate response to Bell’s ongoing abuse is to relieve them of management of that service.
Any company that is given this privilege to provide this wonderful technology and betrays the trust of people (packet inspection, not upgrading to new technologies so they justify outrages prices for faster tier services, major conflict of interest with voip and content material with Rogers and bell) should have it taken away from them. Also I read an article that nortel had equipment so that isp providers could cheaply upgrade their services to 10x or faster, but that they are not up so far, why.
I think it’s time to break up the telecom monopoly in Canada. the robber barrons cant be trusted with freedom on the internet. The real solution is to stop adding customers to a congested network, or add infrastructure.
Like I said all out war exists against Bell now…
 and anyone who still thinks that Bell can be trusted with any contracts is really still dumb!!
 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.

> Hi Guys.. From what I understand Bell only throttles  ]p2p apps from 4pm to 2am daily.[/quote]

but from what I  know for sure  Bell lies in all it does and it is being  sued all the time..[

I am still have internet page site access problems .. I can reach 4/5, the last 5 won’t work at all generally.. page connectivity problems and trying to find out why is a real struggle. even the web searches next  slow down.. I have no viruses,  or spyware for sure too.

Honest,. good people think all others live by the golden rules, in reality that is not so.. 30 percent of all people are bad who should been jail in reality.

I have been in engineering, real estate, and computer business as well,, the biggest crooks  I had encountered the last 5 decades were related to computers and real estate, lawyers, and accountants, pastors -prestos, cops, politicians  next. I do not have to please anyone.. I am retired, I can’t be fired..

Look I too  am up all time of the night and day, sleeping it seems in various hourly  shifts, since computer problems,  watching my downloads cause they crash often on Torrent and I can  tell in reality the speed varies from 30 to 350  during the 24 hour period.. and that is only due to capping. my peak downloads are from 2 am to 7  am, at 350 kbps  after that they drop to 30 to 50 all day almost

when I get problems I next need to separate the meat from the bones, the good from the crappy advice I also do get from Bell etc.. reminds me I was to stay home this morning but no drive By bell tech showed up or called me  even.

I have talked to many many Bell tech and they almost all lied to me the last few years.. mangers and the president office.. misleading adds, deceptions, lying is a common Bell management proactive as I and others have detailed to Bell in writing, news media, and on the net often too for the last 2 years on my various related sites,
Bell a corporate who’re is already facing a consumer class action suit in Quebec, Ontario and one by Bell’s own distributors for false , misleading advertising, breach of contract… lies.. such is the reality these days too.

First  as in our past great discussions I had pointed out that

there is the great advertise  download speeds.. assuming no line problems of course

and next there is the U torrents download speeds

and next there is the actual actual files download  speeds

then there is the   web page opening speeds..

and we know how all these varying  separate speeds  depend   on what?

The 7 the Bell repairman finally showed up at my home on Tuesday April 15, 2008 at 4:30 pm replacing the 10th modem , and It just takes a few hours next, 7 hours,  and my Bell Internet services was even next down AGAIN, the red light on my 2 wire modem was indicating my  problem connecting to the internet. Much too many problems with my Browser connectivity, problems with my email, and problems with Bit torrent downloads, and the related simple question as to “Why Bell sympatico ,once and for all, cannot simple give me a decent, reliable, steady, adequate, continuous high speed internet service”  remains UNANSWERED. A simple question! The answers this question varies depending on who you talk to, and Bells promises to deal with it adequately are rarely next kept even.. so once again the THE  SUPERVISOR TODAY AT BELL SERVICE CENTER Tel: 310-7873 SAYS HE BASICALLY CANNOT HELP ME, BECAUSE THE BELL TEST CENTER IS CLOSED, BUT HE WILL CALL THE TEST CENTER TOMORROW AND HE WILL ASK THEM THE SAME QUESTION.
Why cannot Bell not fix my problem plagued Bell internet services once and for all? Most customers with my much too many past problems  by now would have left Bell’s DSL service  for elsewhere, especially a cable service, and many have.
Mere cheap words, promises  is what I  have heard 6 times before from other Bell supervisors, and MORE cheap promises  too, all mostly with the same bad results next too,  me having a lousy internet connection, to have a good connection from Bell for this real actions on Bell’s part is needed and it will will be louder than their cheap words, I am sorry about your problems, bad service, etc., but still positive real actions would mean Bell spending real money on upgrading Bell’s clearly inadequate DSL equipment, cables money and  Bell is clearly not spending it wrongfully too, it prefers to put their capital into their new wireless internet services instead, where they can next again screw many Bell customers with more false, unkept promises and charge them more money too..  and that is why hundreds? thousands of Bell customers make the same complaint too, Internet Connectivity problem, even on the Bell Sympatico site .
 So to get real actions, to show how serious I am to get real , adequate Bell results I am rightfully now asking Bell to be rightly penalized for not keeping their contract obligations, by again starting to  paying me   some serious money penalties rightfully too , and maybe they will wake up to my rightful complaints, the negative reality of their poor Internet services with me. Some how I doubt it.
Is that clear enough for you?

PS Bell I still want you to deal with the Bell Sympatico liar,  thief in India who falsely made my internet account changes, and stole my money into it without my approval, knowledge too as detailed…. and continue to look what the fools at bell continue to make false changes to my Bell internet services profile which varies from 1 megs, 2 megs, 5 megs, 6 megs, 7 megs, and now all  contrary to Bell’s promises, advertisement of a steady High speed system too, or Bell’s advertisement that ” Bell delivers reliable Internet access, assuring consumers that they can get on the  Net when they want to and stay there as long as they need”…is also clearly a lie….” Bell’s advertised “Choice of consistent super fast speed” is also a lie for the speed varied and often…  Bell’s advertised “Best price” is also a lie.. and do still deal with Bell’s false capping of my bit torrent too..
