Rogers has promised to stop “throttling” internet traffic on its network by the end of this year, IF YOU BELEIVE THESE CONTINUAL LIARS WHO LIED THEY WERE NOT THROTTLING ALREADY.. AND ROGERS IS NOT T MUCH BETTER THAN BIG BAD BELL..

Undeniably in my years of dealing with Canada’s largest, most greedy  telecommunication firm Bell, even as detailed on the net by me, Bell they too often do  lie, distort the truth, mislead,  and are guilty of not honoring their promises, word, contracts, use an immoral switvh and bait approach.. and they need to be fully regulated.. why do they Bell have to advertise so much of their services, it is still cause they have many many unsatisfied customers.. at least 20 to 30 percent.. who said  lying does not  pay.. just look how rich Bell got..  they bought CTV..

The consumer abuses also by   Bell, Rogers, Virgin, Telus etc. they all should be an election issue..

Majority of Canadians they now still do  just want  all pricing to be fair — and Bell, Rogers, Telus, Shaw and Videtron etc., so far have been anything but.

My own first complaint about despotic oriented Bell was that it has a one sided, false and misleading  contract with it’s customers, and it is immoral, heavily one sided contract that is still basically illegal even and if you do rightfully complain about how crooked Bell is despotic Bell will cut of your services.. so much for the subject of their corporate ethics, integrity, accountability, honesty,  democratic rights, free speech rights to.. if you want to see the details as to why I despise Bell just read Big Bad Bell
  
Now lately undeiably Big Bad Bell has resorted undeniably to sheep stealing, It has been contacting it’s past  customers now with the other  existing telecommunications firms, Such as Primus, Rogers, Acanac, Videotron,  and behind their backs trying to win back these past dissatisfied customers by using a misleading door to Door to door  survey approach such as a  typical commission salesmen representing Bell shows up uninvited to your door and says”We are here to help you to reduce your phone bill costs and would like to talk to you about it”.. or they say” We are doing a survey to find out how customers are actually satisfied with Bell or Telus customers” , etc.. or they mail you and invitation to go to back to Bell..

CRTC Internet decision gouges users With the recent CRTC decision, Canadian consumers and businesses that are already paying the highest costs for the Internet in the developed world will now also be paying inflated usage rates.That translates into poor international competitiveness, poor productivity, reduced investment infrastructure, stifled innovation and consumer choice.

MONTREAL, Feb. 15 /CNW Telbec/ – Colba.Net Inc. (CNSX: CB), a leading telecommunications company in Quebec announced today that it would continue to offer unlimited high speed Internet downloads usage and access to its clients within its adsl2+ footprint despite a recent Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission (“CRTC”) decision regarding the implementation of usage-based billing rates (“UBB”). As a result of public pressure and concerns recently expressed, the CRTC announced on February 3, 2011 that it would delay the implementation of UBB for wholesale customers by 60 days and that it would launch a review of its previous decision to verify that consumers interests are protected, heavy Internet users pay for their excess usage and small Internet Service providers retain maximum flexibility. http://www.newswire.ca/en/releases/archive/February2011/15/c2725.html

 
Bell Canada Wanted Usage-Based Billing. Too Bad It Couldn’t Accurately Keep Track Of Usage!  “Please note that we have identified an issue that may cause Internet usage shown on the site to be overstated in some cases. In order to ensure we provide reliable information to all our clients, the usage tracker will be unavailable while we resolve the issue. We apologize for the inconvenience.” And Bell Canada wonders why so many people hated the idea of usage-based billing?  Not that it matters now, with the Canadian government having since backed off the idea, but the above admission should serve as a warning to usage-based billing: it patently doesn’t work. How can you charge someone by the gigabyte when you have no idea how many gigabytes they’ve downloaded? It boggles the mind.You’ll recall that the Canadian Radio-television Telecommunications Commission had announced plans to implement a usage-based billing regime for the country’s ISPs. In a perfect world (from the perspective of the ISPs) you would pay X-Amount per month for Internet access, then you’d be charged for every gigabyte past your allotted tiny bandwidth limit. It would have made using things like Netflix and Steam all but impossible in Canada, with dire implications for the future of the country’s Internet competitiveness. Then Canada flipped out, causing the government to realize what a silly idea usage-based billing truly was.And then there was that Bell Canada admission, made to a newspaper there last week. A sort of, “You know how we wanted to charge you by the gigabyte? It turns out we had no accurate way of measuring that! Oops!”This was said during the height of the usage-based billing debate (not that there was much of a debate), but how about instead of figuring out how to artificially limit people’s downloads you instead try to figure out how to increase bandwidth capacity? Stop claiming that all these evil downloaders are causing the ruination of everything. It’s not like Internet-based services are going away any time soon. Oh, wait, there’s no immediate payoff to that, right. Gotcha. http://www.crunchgear.com/2011/02/15/bell-canada-wanted-usage-based-billing-too-bad-it-couldnt-accurately-keep-track-of-usage/

This week, after intense media coverage, the Conservative Party announced that they would overturn a decision by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) – if the CRTC didn’t overturn it first – that allows the big Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to impose metering on the companies that purchase their bandwith to resell it to consumers. The CRTC knuckled under pretty quickly and on Feb. 3 announced they would review their decision of a year ago. This high level opposition to metering (or UBB for Usage Based Billing) should be applauded. All the major political parties came out against it, which goes to show how important it is to the Canadian people. It would have killed small ISPs, online services like Netflix and online gaming at the same time Canada is working to attract video game companies, small businesses that rely on the web to operate, families that use lots of bandwith, institutions like libraries and universities that provide bandwith for free, and various other high bandwith users of the Internet. http://www.piquenewsmagazine.com/pique/index.php?cat=C_Columns&content=Cybernaut+1806

 My being used to producing engineering designs, reports, cost control reports I am used to put it into writing but I am next realy surprised how many persons in the governments, telecommunication industry find an excuse not to write back, ask instead to talk to me by phone, cause they do not want any evidences of their wrong doings in writing firstly. Just for example ask your phone company to send you a copy of your specific contract, your latest agreement details with them  and you will see jowl they are all reluctant to do so now. While they will even on the phone promise to do so they will next not do so generally. These people too often do know that they can lie on the phone without facing negative consequences, SO I LIKE TO FOLLOW UP ALL PHONE CONVERSATIONS, AGREEMENT  IN WRITING TO THEM https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2008/04/27/basic-contract-law/ 

 

The consumer abuses by   Bell, Rogers, Virgin, Telus, Primus etc. they all should be an election issue..

Majority of Canadians they just want  all pricing to be fair — and Bell, Rogers, Telus, Shaw and Videtron etc., so far have been anything but.
