Bell moves to limit internet competitors, ISPs

 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.

“Internet Content overload suggests need to rethink how the Web works” ? ha ha ha that is a really good joke.. Because to get the customers Bell initially had said it had the largest, fastest high speed system in Canada.. But Bell also next to cover up their clear inability to be efficient, to cover their poor management losses Bell next undeniably even  lies to the same customers as to the initial reasons they next were not able to deliver what they had promised, and Bell  next tries to justify their false pricing gouges.. Bell itself and it’s poor managers are  still a really good big joke. Who are they fooling now but themselves as to how bad managers they really are..

Because undeniably Bell Sympatico on it’s own cannot deliver effective, competitive internet services it next tries to stop anyone else who can.. knowing   how really useless the Prime Minister, Jim Prentice MP, Conservative federal minster of Industry and the CRTC are now too

   Bell moves to limit internet downloads of competitor ISPs  CBC.ca –   ” CBC News Bell moved in April to eliminate mandated access to its network by small internet service providers. (Paul Chiasson/Canadian Press) Bell Canada Inc. is moving to impose download limits on customers of independent internet providers,The limits would range from two gigabytes per month for customers with slower connections of 512 kilobits per second up to 60 GB for those with the faster speeds of five megabits per second, according to Acanac president Paul Louro. Customers who exceed those limits would incur extra charges, much like cellphone subscribers do when they surpass their monthly minutes.   Bell officials could not be reached for comment.  

The company has taken several steps toward eliminating the smaller ISPs’ ability to compete over the past few months, the firms say. Bell began slowing the speeds of its own Sympatico subscribers using peer-to-peer applications such as BitTorrent last November, then extended the practice to its wholesale customers in March, prompting a dispute that is before the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission.

The smaller companies, through the Canadian Association of Internet Providers, say Bell is breaking telecommunications law through its speed “throttling” and have asked the CRTC to force an end to the practice. CAIP has also said Bell is forcing the throttling onto its members so that they aren’t able to offer a competitive advantage, or faster speeds, than Sympatico. 

Bell also has an appeal before the Federal Court of Canada to scrap CRTC-mandated access of wholesale customers such as TekSavvy, Eagle.ca and Acanac to its network. Bell says the high-speed internet market is highly competitive and regulated rules of access are therefore no longer necessary.

Smaller ISPs were given access to the networks of phone companies in the first place because the incumbents held a natural infrastructure monopoly, which was initially built through taxpayer funds when they were government-owned.

Louro, posting on DSLreports.com, said the only good news for customers is that the download limits — if they are imposed in January, as proposed by Bell — will not affect current clients. So long as customers do not switch ISPs, they will continue to have unlimited downloading.

He also said Acanac is exploring the possibility of allying with other small ISPs to install its own equipment in Bell’s communications offices, which would allow them to bypass Bell’s forced download limits.

“We prefer not to do this alone,” Louro wrote.

Installing equipment in Bell’s buildings is a risky proposition, Gaudreault said, until the outcome of the company’s court appeal is known.

“The question then becomes, what next?” he said.”

FCC Blasts Comcast For Blocking Internet – Details Comcast’s conflict of interest! Read it here in the FCC press release!

FCC Lambasts Comcast For Blocking P2P Traffic, But Doesn’t Issue Fine – washingtonpost.com

The FCC lambasted Comcast ( NSDQ: CMCSA) for blocking traffic from some P2P users and evading its official position on the matter in a long awaited and 3-2 split ruling today. Prompted by a complaint filed by Free Press and Public Knowledge and complaints from Comcast subscribers who noticed problems using P2P applications such at BitTorrent, Comcast denied responsibility at first and then changed its story at least three more times as new details emerged. “Comcast’s interference is far more invasive and widespread than the company first conceded,” the commission wrote in its ruling. The FCC didn’t fine Comcast but ordered it to cease all “discriminatory network-management practices” by the end of the year. Within 30 days, Comcast is required to disclose its practices to the agency. Release (pdf).  Comcast has an anti-competitive motive to interfere with customers’ use of peer-to-peer applications,” which can deliver high-quality video content that users might otherwise pay for on cable TV. Calling Comcast’s tactics “invasive” and having “significant effects,” the commission wrote that it found the company is “monitoring customers’ connections using deep packet inspection and then determines how it will route some connections based not on their destinations but on their contents. In essence, Comcast opens its customers’ mail because it wants to deliver mail not based on the address on the envelope but on the type of letter contained therein.” The FCC believes Comcast “interfered with up to three-quarters of all peer-to-peer connections in certain communities.” The end result being the “blocking of internet traffic, which had the effect of substantially impeding consumers’ ability to access the content and to use the applications of their choice.” Still, the agency “reiterated that its interest is in protecting consumers’ access to lawful content. Blocking unlawful content such as child pornography or pirated music or video would be consistent with federal internet policy.”

Tory majority still out of reach: Poll

” Published: Friday, August 01, 2008

OTTAWA – If Prime Minister Stephen Harper successfully goads Liberal Leader Stephane Dion into forcing a fall election, Harper may not be so pleased with the results.

A new poll shows the Conservatives just slightly ahead of the Liberals, but behind their Grit rivals in Ontario and Quebec, two provinces where the Conservatives must make gains if they hope to one day form a majority government.

Moreover, the poll, done exclusively for Canwest News Service and Global National by Ipsos Reid, shows that, despite Harper’s caustic dismissal of Dion’s green shift plan and his challenge in a speech Wednesday that Dion ought to “fish or cut bait,” voter support has barely moved.

If an election were held today, it would likely result in another Conservative minority.  ( Harper clearly desperately praying for a Miracle.. needs firstly to look equally after the good welfare of  all Canadains and  to start caring about what all of the citizens care about too.. not more money for himself and his bad  friends..)

If an election were held today, it would likely result in another Conservative minority.

The Ipsos Reid survey finds that 34 per cent of Canadians support Harper’s Conservatives, an improvement of one percentage point from the last Ipsos Reid poll six weeks ago, while Dion’s Liberals are sitting at 30 per cent, a drop of two percentage points.

If those results held through an election this fall, it would likely result in another Conservative minority but could, depending on where support is concentrated, produce a small Liberal minority government.”

http://thenonconformer.tripod.com/ 

  Attention the President of Bell Canada, Bell Sympatico.  (Prov 27:2 KJV)  Let another man praise thee, and not thine own mouth; a stranger, and not thine own lips.

Bell Sympatico undeniably clearly had beforehand promised me verbally a “high speed unlimited, uncapped, reliable, continual download services,  and not they will try to next to  offer me this, submit  their best service but they had, have  to deliver to my next what was promised.  In reality they had clearly failed to live up to their own advertisement, promises because of their in incapableness now to do so to me and often as I had witnessed even for 24 months and rightfully detailed, had complained to them too.  Bell, their false pride of self importance has gone to their head and has allowed also the employees, even the president of Bell, vice president of Bell Sympatico to wrongfully now be abusive to  me ,  to wrongfully think that they can dictate their  own contract obligations, terms now to others, to wrongfully make their own self evaluations too, and that the others, like me, have no choice but to comply even to their clearly lies, distortions, perversities. The Bell president himself now also needs to be reminded that a contract is a joint agreement amongst two equal, mutually submissive  parties, and that both parties have to respect the contract agreement, and each other, meaning definitely that Bell has to respect the customer now too.. When this immoral Bell perverts now even writes to me and says according to our own records we have adequately supplied your our services, that is a disserted one sided fact, not necessarily or rightfully shared by the customer now, me. I have dealt with another ISP and they were more honest as to what they had promised me and next delivered in comparisons to Bell Sympatico  now too. The Bell competitors  download speeds are significantly higher all the time as well,  with no capping too  and even cheaper too.
 
       
[…]   (Rom 8:28 KJV) And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. Bell Sympatico wrongfully had cut of my internet services last month June 1, 2008 cause they had wrongfully objected to my rightful complaints and me also going public about it world wide.. I next got a cheaper service at 1/5 the cost from Bell from another firm, that ironically still gives me the same service even from Bell that I had before.. so they Bell  had meant it for evil but it next had caused me to save loads of money instead.  http://anyonecare.wordpress.com/2008/06/14/dirty-dirty-bell-sympatico/ […]

When you do now write back to me please also do do include these related issues, topics now in full as well..  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/tag/bell/
 
1- Why is it you Sasha Rollins wrongfully had never returned my phone calls to you this year in 2008, the last time we talked was before you went away for your Christmas holidays. This clearly was very unprofessional of you too. 
 
2- Why is it when you had agreed in December 2007 the 6 months free unlimited internet in 2008 to compensate that you Bell had previously lied to me and had next not only had not delivered my paid for high speed system the last two previous years, but now next you had undeniably not delivered it to me in 2008 . How stupid do you take me to me, what kind of a fool now? For even the next promised reliably or steady service, rather in 2008 it only worked well one week out of 4 weeks in every month of 2008 as I had detailed and I had in writing rightfully complained to you now too.. Bell, you should compensate me for the poor system you had delivered me previously and also now as well for 2008 and that was why I had asked a total compensation rightfully from you in 2008 for 2500 dollars as detailed to you in writing this year now too…
 
 3: I had asked of you many times for signed invoices for my monthly Sympatico billings for all of 2008 and I had not received it, finally you had sent on incomplete invoices, partials to me, and next you Bell you had refused to explain, deal with the clear unacceptable discrepancies on the monthly 2008 invoices that I had often by phone, in writing, on the net had detailed to bell Sympatico as well. Everyone at Bell Sympatico next had replied that no one had authorizations to deal with any of the items, only Sasha Rollins did, and he never got back to me on them ever, even to date too.. 
 
4: You Bell are also clearly guilty of forgery, lies, misleading, false business practices in that I HAD MANY TIME NOW HAD ASKED YOU FOR CONFIRMATION, PROOF THAT I HAD RENEWED THE SYMPATICO CONTRACT IN 2008 AND THAT I HAD REQUESTED ANY UPGRADES TO IT AND YOU DID NOT SUPPLY IT AT ALL. I IN 2008 WAS EVEN INITIALLY UNAWARE THERE WERE SYMPATICO CHANGES MADE, AND I WAS NOT TOLD BEFOREHAND, OR GIVEN THE PROOF THAT I HAD REQUESTED. I ALWAYS DO CONFIRM ALL AGREEMENTS WITH BELL SYMPATICO PREVIOUSLY IN WRITING BY EMAIL, AND YOU FORE SURE HAD NO SUCH LETTER FROM ME TOO.. I had rightfully as you are aware asked THE RCMP to investigate these matter in full too. if the contract was renewed by you NOW it should have been done at the old contract rates, and the promised 6 megs download speeds, and at the unlimited download as well. 
 
5: I had also rightfully complained din writing many times about your false capping of my downloads without my knowledge , prior approval as well of my downloads on the unlimited Sympatico download contract. Presently I have an unlimited download contract with one of your competitors but they rightfully they do not cap my downloads per our present contract to o. 
 
6: You Bell Sympatico had definitely many times now had unacceptably lied to me, had sent over 7 repairman to my home, had replaced my modem over 8 times as well, when you said that any of the problem of you failing to deliver me the reliable steady, continual high speed was related to me, my computer as well. I tested your system with 3 separate computers and operating system and it was your Bell line’s failure, Bells inadequate equipment, problems outside of my home that was the sole reasons of your own fault of past poor internet services to me. This all was also an unacceptable breach of the Sympatico contract towards me too. 
 
8: I HAD NEVER NOW FROM BELL SYMPATICO REQUESTED ANY MODEM UPGRADE AND NEXT IN 2008 YOU HAD FALSELY CHARGED ME EXTRA FOR THIS AS WELL. YOU BUNCH OF LYING CROOKS HERE TOO.  
 
9: Bell Sympatico you had tried to rob me of my monies now as well from my bank account in 2008 during the time I had been promised 6 month of Free internet services and those acts as well were, are totally despicable, immoral on your part too. 
 
10 I WANT YOU BELL STILL ALSO TO DEAL WITH THE FALSE INVASIONS OF MY PRIVACY BY THE POSTING OF MY PERSONAL INFORMATION ON THE SYMPATICO CUSTOMER’S FORUM, AND I WANT YOU ALSO TO DEAL WITH THE FALSE CENSORSHIPS OF ME, THE FALSE ATTEMPT TO DENY MY FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND RIGHT TO BE HEARD ON THE SYMPATICO FORUM AND BY SASHA ROLLINS NOW AS WELL. NOW THAT IS JUST FOR A START.. DO STILL ALSO REFER TO ALL MY PREVIOUS 300 OF MY PAST EMAILS OF COMPLAINTS NOW TO YOU ABOUT BELL SYMPATICO’S TOO MANY OTHER UNACCEPTABLE INADEQUACIES, POOR SERVICES IN THE LAST 30 MONTHS TOO. EVEN THOSE POSTED ON THE NET FOR ALL TO READ NOW TOO.

My last 300 letters , WERE was addressed clearly to Bell Sympatico IN DETAIL now. what KIND OF CRAP DO YOU SEND ME AGAIN WHEN YOU DO NOT REFER TO MY VERY CLEAR SPECIFICS TOO NOW? I refer you to all of my 300 past email letters to Bell Sympatico in detail since Jan 2007 too. Do Bell deal with all of them adequately still . If you are still too incompetent to deal with them them have YOUR BOSS FIRE YOU AND GET RIGHTFULLY SOMEONE WHO CAN. The whole world reads my complaints and you and pretend. LIE RATHER when you say that you do not understand what I am COMPLAINING about ? I clearly had many times rightfully even complained that you Bell are dishonest, a clear liar, a twister of the facts ,truths , and that you Bell had also breached my contract, etc. all just for a start, and even much more. Do you need me to resend all the letters to you and to everyone again?RSVPDO YOU ALSO ABUSE ALL BELL SYMPATICO CUSTOMERS LIKE YOU HAVE UNDENIABLE ABUSED ME NOW TOO?

 

How can you be so EVEN stupid Bell Sympatico Sasha Rollins  now even  to threaten me now in writing today that if I continue to complain to others about Bell Sympatico, TO tell the truth about Bell that  you will  even cut of my internet service  ESPECIALLY  when firstly now  I  do not have any ISP service presently with Bell, I have no Bell Sympatico contract, and there is no bank access for you to get hold of too.. now do get it together at least.. before you write such stupid, foolish things to me..  and you should have also learned by now that taking a false Ostrich approach towards me, and my many rightful complaints about big bad bell Sympatico still does not make me go away.. nor my complaints too.

Attention Prime Minister of Canada the Honourable Stephen Harper PM, MP 

The Honourable Jim Prentice MP., Minister of Industry, Consumer affairs  July 19, 2008

My rightful complaints about clearly bad Bell Sympatico Canada have been mailed to you often, all the major news editors, and even to key members of parliament the last whole year, posted on the net too.. and you Prime Minister of Canada had now twice even backlogged them, but yet you did, still do nothing about this immoral Corporation, that is undeniably abusive, guilty of false, misleading practices, lies, and so forth as I myself have witnessed and detailed the last 18 months. And I can resend you all of the details if you had lost them, and I can also post   them all on   net again too.. and yes they are located presently as well over 30 internet sites.. Merely do a Google search of Kambulow, thenonconformer, Sympatico..

http://www.google.com/search?q=Kambulow%2C+thenonconformer%2C+Sympatico&rls=com.microsoft:en-us&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&startIndex=&startPage=1

Now the sole person who presently is authorized to deal with me regardying all of this, is the uless, no good, lying, pretentious Bell executive care Sasha Rollins, wjho has mailed me very similar useless response to my 300 deailed emails to him firstly. Please do note even spoecically the lastest one too date july 15, 2008..

 1: He Sasha Rollins says my complaints have been taken seriously and my email has been increased to 5000 letters a day.. he clearly now lies, this same when when undeniably this same liar had falsely disconnected my Bell internet service on June 1 2008 and had not reconnected it, and I thus now have no Bell Sympatico internet services.. so my Bell emails do not work at all. I have another ISP supplier instead now. This show how seriously he takes my letters, does not do an adequate review of them now eve firstly.

 

2: He Sasha Rollins  lies and said he had promised me speeds up to 6 megs, that is like me fairly saying reciprocally I will pay him monthly up to 55 dollars per month as I see fit.. but up to contracts are illegal by the laws, courts  in the province of Quebec for they all  have to be of fixed, definable  values.
3: He Sasha Rollins   says he credit my account with 6 months free internet, but that was not what we had agreed upon, a false credit, where he next lied and charged me for more extras as detailed many times.
4: He Sasha Rollins  next  abuses me by referring to the city of LaSalle as being not responsible to return me any of the payments due to me, but  I have asked Bell in wrting to pay rightfully for their breach of my contract still too and many many many times.. and he even falsely had said he would not pay me..
5: He Sasha Rollins  quotes inappropriate regulations that are not sanctioned by the courts now too justifying his false invasion of my privacy, slander, abuse of me, his and Bell lies to me, their breaches my  contract, his false capping of my downloads as well.. he also in writing  stupidly even threatens to terminate my Bell Sympatico internet services when the same definite fool, idiot should know I do not even have one the last 2 months with Bell Sympatico.
He Sasha Rollins  said he took my complaints seriously.. what a liar he did not even address 99 percent of them firstly ..
and next  I rightfully also still expect your clearly useless Conservative Minister of Consumer affairs Jim Prentice MP to rightfully deal with it immediately too.

Bell bites back with poor-man’s iPhone Globe and Mail – 3 Jul 2008 BCE Inc.’s lengthy struggle to privatize may have left management distracted and Bell Canada’s brand reliant on a couple of aging beavers, but the phone company is still managing to strike back at its more nimble rivals.

Ever wonder besides viruses that as time goes by you notice that   your computer net is slower, and slower, well it is no secret Bell, Rogers, and others cannot handle the continually increasing demands caused by computers and iphones now too. So their systems break down too often, have too many failures often, are over used, in over capacity mode.. and these carriers seem to  have been to cheap to rectify the problem, update, modernize their communication equipment..    https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/06/14/buyer-beware-beware/

The stastics on my own sites do show that MY MANY POSTS ABOUT MY UNDENIABLE EXPERIENCE WITH BAD BELL SYMPATICO ARE STILL ON THE TOP 3 MOST POPULAR READINGS OF ALL OF MY VARIOUS TOPICS THAT I HAVE POSTED ON MANY SITES OF MINE.

I had already written months ago  even here that Bell was capping the Sympatico downloads EVEN cause it was making way for their iphone business and Bell will definitely abuse it’s phone customers the next same way it has undeniably now too  abused many of it’s ISP customers. Sad and unaccepatable.

Too Many major ISP suppliers are unacceptably guilty of

Too Many major ISP suppliers are unacceptably guilty of initial and subsequent false misleading advertising practices, and an immoral  “Bait and switch” business   practice as well.
 
Here is the undeniable reality.. Many bad ISP corporations beforehand do not disclose the amount of capping that they do to their customers., or after wards, or lie as to much they supposedly cap. For example I have a Bell Sympatico connection or I can use a second party proxy connection, and next I get twice the download speeds with the proxy over the Bell’s capped services even  during the non peak hours as well, such as all day Saturday.. not just  evenings  4.0 pm to 2. am when Bell admits it caps their lines. Now that is a fact any potential bell customer should know now too.
 
“AP  Sun Jun 15, 9:45 AM ET  At one time, the word “unlimited” meant unlimited.
 
Sprint’s mobile broadband service is the latest to abandon the term and the principle in favor of a monthly cap designed to keep their heaviest users from overwhelming their network.
 
But Sprint isn’t alone: its two 3G competitors also cap usage, and two wireline broadband operators are testing explicit caps as well. In the earliest days of broadband, service was either heavily capped, with ridiculously low limits–I recall DSL plans that had 1 GB monthly downstream limits for business-grade offerings–or totally uncapped. 
 
 Now, the idea of capped service with metered rates, stern warnings, or cancellations above a monthly limit are fully in fashion. For the last few years, companies like Comcast and Verizon’s wired broadband division have warned users about excessive downloads, degraded their service, or canceled their accounts, often with little recourse, and sometimes denying it all the while. Enough states’ attorneys general and FCC staff and commissioners have been involved that what was implicit has become explicit, but with the related effect that caps have become much lower than what they were in the ad hoc days before these changes. Driving all this is not scarcity, because there’s plenty of headroom out there on the Internet, but two interrelated issues: service providers always dramatically oversell their service, and some users are actually abusers. ( But really how can one be an absuer when he pays for and uses what was advertised now?
 
 On the first issue, if an ISP has 500 people connected to a central office DSLAM (a DSL aggregator) with a total downstream bandwidth of 2 Gbps, there’s no universe in which a phone company makes available 2 Gbps to that location. Rather, they allot a fraction of that, which works when traffic is bursty, not continuous. Many people downloading or streaming a lot impact everyone in the same grouping. (I’ve seen this at home when I complained about my 3 Mbps DSL dropping to 500 Kbps at night. A Qwest technician explained I was lumped with heavy users, and with about 20 minutes of waiting on the phone, regrouped my line to another, less used pod of users, and my service has been fine since. The nice part is that was a logical change; no one had to walk over to a cage and move my wires around.)
 
The second issue has provoked a lot of debate. But without explicitly labeling the limits on a service, a subscriber can’t technically abuse it. If you know when you sign up for Comcast that they limit your use to 10 GB and provide tools to monitor as well as an understanding of what that bandwidth would allow you to “consume” each month, it’s a very different matter than “all you can eat. “
 
Verizon had long promised unlimited Broadband Access for their 3G EVDO mobile broadband service. But it was well documented that unlimited had fairly strict limits. After an investigation by the New York attorney general’s office, Verizon agreed to change its disclosures, pay some costs to the state, and refund money to some subscribers. The company now fully discloses its 5 GB per month limit for combined upstream and downstream data. Verizon charges you 49 cents per MB ($490 per GB) when you cross that limit, and the company says that they use email, SMS, and a live data usage display in their connection manager to keep you apprised. Note that a single high-definition movie download might consume nearly 5 GB.AT&T, likewise, has a 5 GB cap each month on LaptopConnect, its 3G cell data offering, with unspecified behavior when you top that amount–additional charges may apply, but clarity would be helpful. They note in their PDF-only terms and conditions: “The parties agree that AT&T has the right to impose additional charges if you use more than 5 B in a month. Prior to the imposition of any additional charges, AT&T shall provide you with notice and you shall have the right to terminate your service.”Sprint has joined this club with first the leaked news and then official confirmation that starting July 13, 2008, its 3G service would also have a 5 GB cap. A spokesperson told me that off-network roaming–ostensibly with Verizon or Alltel, the only other major providers of 3G in the US using the EVDO flavor–is capped at 300 MB per month. Now these are all 3G providers, who have limited spectrum over which they have to make sure all contending users in each cell get approximately the same kind of experience. They can’t afford one user sucking down all bandwidth. However, we’re seeing the same kinds of limits start to be tested for cable-based broadband.

Comcast is testing delaying traffic–slowing down packet transmission to throttle the bandwidth rate–in two Eastern cities they cover for the heaviest users of their service. This is an effective cap, rather than a cutoff. (Comcast has been delaying BitTorrent P2P traffic for all its users prior to this; this change affects all traffic, not just BitTorrent, and is being announced, instead of sub rosa.) In a town in Texas, Time Warner Cable is experimenting with offering different speed packages each of which is coupled with a monthly limit on usage. The lowest-priced package offers a ridiculous 768 Kbps downstream and 1 GB per month for $30 per month; the highest-priced is 15 Mbps downstream with a more reasonable 40 GB per month limit. Charges are $1 per GB above that. With cable companies traditionally and telephone companies newly offering television programming, premium channels, and on-demand video, the caps are another tool to prevent competition from over-the-Internet sources of things to watch. In a situation in which a few carriers control all the pieces, it’s unclear whether rate caps can stick. If both telcos and cable companies decide to impose such limits and restructure their networks, who do you turn to? People with broadband are unlikely to cancel it. In a monopoly or duopoly market, you can’t switch brands. There has to be a happy middle–a role that the FCC may help to negotiate. A 40 GB cap switched to 400 GB might serve precisely the right purpose without penalizing average users who have no other market choice. With Time Warner Cable charging a buck a gigabyte above their monthly limits in their test market, but with Amazon’s S3 service delivering it retail for as little as a tenth that, it’s not hard to see that carriers are looking to caps to solve network problems and make a little scratch on the side.”  http://news.yahoo.com/s/pcworld/20080615/tc_pcworld/146752

News Editors Canada, Bell sympatico

bell-internet-isp
 
Bell Sympatico had  falsely suspended my Internet contract recently to likely avoid a lawful  lawsuit from me. Instead now I find it ironic that Bell is being sued, Bell is facing a class action suit,  about the same time they Bell had falsely cut of my internet services,  with a Bell false excuse as well, Bell is being sued  by the others and they are asking for the same amount of money, damages that I  am personally asking them rightfully for too, about 2500 dollars specifically for Bell Sympatico’s  unacceptable breaches of my ISP contract obligations the last many years.. See my post, notes on Contract law.
https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2008/04/27/basic-contract-law/
   
 Me I am still always rightfully actively resistant  to all of the  abusers, bullies, liars, even to the Church, GOVERNMENTAL, CORPORATE, POLICE  oppressions. etc., still too.
 
I clearly do believe in the right of everyone to speak, to speak out as well,  and to be equally heard by all, so we can all judge what has been said if it is appropriate and we can next corresponding act upon it, even in the church, in the government, on the internet now too. Exemplary Public exposure and prosecution of these real bad guys serves as a best deterrent to all too. Free speech and whistle blowers help to make this happen too and bad guys wrongfully do not like this.. to bad for the bad guys.. and doing nothing about bad guys helps to makes it all worse.. so do something, write to the news editors, elected officials now too even if the bad guys do not like this.. Do it as well…      
  
Do even write about bad cops, bad pastors, the usless CRTC, and usles federal Minister of Industries, Consumer Affairs.

When I go public I often get threats of a lawsuit, not just the politicians sending the police to my door, but I do not back off, and I always seem to tell them to go ahead.. the lawsuit will give the matter more publicity too.. and they back off.

   

Can anyone sue for defamation of character/libel/slander for PERSONAL statements made even on the Internet? But if it’s true there is no CASE for defamation or slander. And if it is NOT true they still will have to show specific, related proof of actual damages, not just some supposed potential damages. Furthermore the law still requires that they do reply to all allegations in the manner they had firstly have received them immediately too, within a reasonable period of time, and if they have not bothered to deny, reply to, to object any of the charges of wrong doings, allegations initially, after a reasonable period of time, a maximum of 6 months they not longer can do so, for now it is accepted they are true.

Do ALL stop being sue crazy or nicky picky too.

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 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.

Are you having problems with your ISP too?

You can get out of the Sympatcio Internet contract by cancelling your land line phone service? Or by telling the truth about Bell on the net.

Are you having problems with your ISP too?

Bell Sympatico complaints

I have openly rightfully shared with the Prime Minister of Canada Stephen Harper’s office that Bell Sympatico undeniably is one of the most dirty, immoral, abusive Corporation, firm I have dealt in Canada in my lifetime. One that even falsely suppressed my complaints against it, my right of free speech as well. Because Bell Sympatico has UNACCEPTABLY TOO often HAD breached my ISP contractual agreement and NEXT Bell Sympatico had forcibly falsely disconnected my ISP service with them too thus next I have been forced to switch over to the Canadian www.acanac.ca/  -Residential High Speed ADSL without any Limits and No Blocked Ports or Traffic Shapping, plus Unlimited Downloading 100 GB of Online Storage Up to 5 Mbps Download and 800 Kbps Upload $18.95 per month This offer is available on a 1 year term and the first year of service. www.acanac.ca/Webhosting.html  Call Tel: 1-866-281-3538 , 1-416-849-8520 On top of that I repeatedly do ask why Bell is now so expensive in comparisons to it’s competitor that uses the same TROUBLED EVEN Bell internet lines..( Acanac is an independent subcontractor of Bell so Bell will still cap the bitterest downloads during peak hours, something Bell does not readily advertise to all customers. But Acanac offers a solution to this community.acanac.com Forum Index » Common DSL Problems » Official workaround to the Bell throttle: Utorrent )

Here is 2 very popular past helpful posts of mine you may find useful to consumers.. Many Consumers do not know how to choose firstly an ISP provider, and what their options are too.

Net neutrality bill hits House

Amazing one of the most active complaint issues by the citizens on Canada’s interent and the major political parties in Canada  still have no comment? Why?

“The CRTC certainly shows no signs of protecting consumers, nor do the Conservatives and Liberals; they are much more likely to protect the interests of corporations when it comes to an issue such as this”..

Net neutrality bill hits House of Commons
CBC.ca – 14 hours ago
By Peter Nowak CBC News NDP digital spokesman Charlie Angus doesn’t believe the CRTC has all the tools it needs to prevent interference in the internet by service providers.

“Net neutrality bill hits House of Commons

The NDP has followed through with its promise to introduce legislation to the House of Commons that seeks to keep the internet open and free from control by service providers.

“This bill is about fairness to consumers,” said Charlie Angus, the NDP’s digital spokesman, in the House of Commons on Wednesday. “The internet is a critical piece of infrastructure not just for Canada but for the world … this bill protects the innovation agenda of Canada.”

The private member’s bill, C-552, is in reaction to moves by some of Canada’s largest internet service providers (ISPs), including Bell Canada Inc. and Rogers Communications Inc., to limit their customers’ uses of the internet. Bell, Rogers and a few others say a small percentage of customers have been congesting their networks by using peer-to-peer applications such as BitTorrent, so they have slowed the internet down at peak times of the day.

The ISPs’ actions have provoked outrage from internet users, with about 300 protesters taking to the steps of Parliament Hill on Tuesday. Critics have said the targeting of peer-to-peer applications is just the tip of the iceberg. If ISPs are allowed to decide which internet applications can and can’t be used, innovative new companies that were born from experimentation — such as Google, Amazon and eBay — may not happen in the future.

“Net neutrality affects everybody, every person, every business, every hospital, every institution is involved in the exchange of information over the internet,” Angus told CBCnews.ca. “This shouldn’t be about party lines.”

The four-page bill seeks to amend the Telecommunications Act and “prohibit network operators from engaging in network management practices that favour, degrade or prioritize any content, application or service transmitted over a broadband network based on its source, ownership or destination, subject to certain exceptions.”

It also looks to prohibit “network operators from preventing a user from attaching any device to their network and requires network operators to make information about the user’s access to the internet available to the user.”

The proposed bill makes exception for ISPs to manage traffic in reasonable cases, Angus said, such as providing stable speeds for applications such as gaming or video conferencing.

“There are areas where telecoms have to be able to exercise rights, but that doesn’t give them the ability to arbitrarily interfere or discriminate,” Angus said.

Section 27 (2) of the Telecommunications Act says: “No Canadian carrier shall, in relation to the provision of a telecommunications service or the charging of a rate for it, unjustly discriminate or give an undue or unreasonable preference toward any person, including itself, or subject any person to an undue or unreasonable disadvantage.”
 
The CRTC certainly shows no signs of protecting consumers, nor do the Conservatives and Libersls; they are much more likely to protect the interests of corporations when it comes to an issue such as this..

Officials at Bell and Rogers did not immediately return requests for comment.

A spokesperson for Minister of Industry Jim Prentice also did not immediately return a request for comment. The spokesperson also did not reply to requests for comment on the net neutrality rally.

Liberal industry critic Scott Brison has not weighed in on the issue, despite having held meetings with Bell, Rogers and several smaller ISPs a few weeks ago. His spokesman did not reply to a request for comment on Wednesday.

The CRTC can’t impose fines for companies violating the Telecommunications Act? Then what is the point of the act?

Section 36 also says: “Except where the commission approves otherwise, a Canadian carrier shall not control the content or influence the meaning or purpose of telecommunications carried by it for the public.”

Despite those two sections, Angus said CRTC chairman Konrad von Finckenstein told the Standing Committee on Canadian Heritage two weeks ago that the regulator did not have sufficient means to punish ISPs violating the rules. Finckenstein said the CRTC needs the ability to impose monetary penalties for violating both the Telecommunications and Broadcasting Acts.

The Canadian government, courts and Bell

 
Anyone still wonder why the Conservatives cannot get out of their minority government slump? Over and over again I have the citizens say the same thing even face to face today.. “the politicians do nothing about the immoral, lying, stealing, no good, abusive Corporations in Canada like Bell Sympatico  because they too often do the same thing. The Conservatives included.” Bell Sympatico complaints
 
Canadians are fighting back against Bell Canada’s traffic shaping  by organizing a rally in support of network neutrality. The rally is being backed by a long list of organizations including Google, two major political parties, three ISPs, and two major unions. It was set for today May 27, 2007 Tuesday at 11:30 am on Parliament Hill in Ottawa. The only question that remains is, will the government listen?”
 
“The federal New Democrats will introduce a private member’s bill on Wednesday that would entrench the principle of “net neutrality” and enact rules to keep the internet free from interference by service providers, an NDP MP told a rally Tuesday in Ottawa.Parliament Hill was beset by about 300 people impassioned by an issue not usually associated with protest marches: internet access. “Save the internet,” read one angry placard. “Say no to Big Brother watching you,” said another.The New Democratic Party’s Charlie Angus told the cheering crowd that the private member’s bill would protect Canadian consumers from having their internet speeds “throttled” by service providers.”You are citizens of a digital realm and you have rights,” he said.The protesters, some of whom boarded buses in the early morning hours to get to the rally, are supporters of net neutrality, a movement urging the government to enact rules that prevent large internet service providers (ISPs) from interfering with the free flow of information over the internet. “Our net not for sale,” they chanted, as well as, “Whose net? Our net.”At issue in the net neutrality debate are the actions of big ISPs that have been slowing down the internet speeds of customers who use certain types of applications, such as peer-to-peer software used for file sharing.Bell Canada Inc. and Rogers Communications Inc., Canada’s two largest ISPs, as well as a few others including Videotron Ltée. and Cogeco Inc., have for some time been engaging in a practice known as “traffic shaping” or “throttling,” where speeds of certain types of internet applications are slowed at certain times of the day. The main targets have been peer-to-peer applications such as BitTorrent, which have emerged as efficient ways of transferring large files like videos.The ISPs say they are throttling such applications because a small percentage of customers are creating network congestion through constant use, which is slowing down connection speeds for the majority.Angus took a swipe at the Liberals, who have been largely silent on the issue of net neutrality. Industry critic Scott Brison met with Bell, Rogers and other independent ISPs weeks ago, but has still not formed a position.”This is not a partisan issue, but we’re hearing radio silence,” Angus told CBCNews.ca. “Where are the Liberals?”Mauril Bélanger, Liberal MP for Ottawa-Vanier, also addressed the crowd and agreed that control of the internet must be kept out of the hands of vested interests. He said the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) already has the power to do this with the Telecommunications Act and refused to support the NDP’s billProtesters at the rally said the ISPs have not only failed to prove their claims regarding the need for throttling, they also have no right to pick and choose which internet applications run faster than others.”When did Bell deign to say what’s good and what’s bad?” said Gatsby Wong, 32, a computer technician who got on a bus in Toronto at 4 a.m. in order to get to the rally. “Who gave them that right?”Protesters also said the practices are anticompetitive, since internet-based phone or video sales services run up against the ISPs’ own existing business lines.”They say they have a congestion problem, but where’s the proof?” said Mark Farr, 49, a renovations worker who made the trip from Welland, Ont., to attend the rally. “They say I’m the problem, but they’re the problem.”Spokespeople for Bell and Rogers did not return requests for comment.Rally leaders urged Minister of Industry Jim Prentice and the CRTC to enact rules enshrining the rights of internet users. Net neutrality isn’t just an issue for technical geeks, they said, it is vital for maintaining freedom of speech and for keeping the innovation that has resulted in the birth and growth of such revolutionary companies as Google, Amazon and eBay.”We need to protect the internet from being hijacked by vested interests,” said Phillipa Lawson, director of the Canadian Internet Policy and Public Interest Clinic (CIPPIC), at the University of Ottawa. ” If market forces could solve this problem we wouldn’t be here today.”Rocky Gaudrault, the rally’s main organizer and chief executive officer of TekSavvy Solutions Inc., told protesters that net neutrality is comprised of three basic principles: competition, innovation and consumer rights. “I’m sorry, but none of those are for sale.”
Smaller ISPs such as TekSavvy, as well as more than 50 others represented at the rally by the Canadian Association of Internet Providers (CAIP), are taking particular exception with Bell’s traffic-shaping practices. Because it has a taxpayer-funded monopoly over phone-cable infrastructure in much of Canada, Bell — as well as other phone companies — is mandated by the CRTC to rent portions of its network to CAIP members so they can provide services to their own customers.  
 
 
 
 

 

It has already been openly alleged that Bell has somone at the CRTC in their back pocket.

Capping: The Criminal Code of Canada’s section 184.2.c.i-ii DOES NOT warrant them to do packet sniffing. It allows them to ONLY ‘sample’ traffic for quality reasons. You need to remember that these rules were drafted to stop people making their own wire taps on phone technology. What the statement is saying is that: If I am a phone tech I am allowed to connect to the line to check for hums/crackels/dead-service and then do my job to fix it. With Internet traffic you may not capture a person’s traffic unless a court order is issued to do so. The subject of traffic shaping is very different…They are looking into packet headers and making changes that are not a privacy issue…

the Canadian new conservative government

Any one have any doubts, that the Canadian new conservative government is pretentious, inadequate, just as bad as the predecessors they said they had wanted to replace too in fact..  

Well I have no doubts at all as to how really bad , lying they are now and that is still all really unacceptable too. There is a clearly still an unacceptable noticeable lack of good leadership today to guide All of the CANADIANS during the troublesome times in Canada today. The question — and it deserves to be shouted — is: ‘Where is and was the government?” “Don’t people have the right to hear from their elected officials?” regularly and not just before an election. It seems our federal, provincial leaders are too often still mainly looking after themselves, their friends once elected.. and they do still too often lie to get elected, and do lie even after they are elected. And how does your elected representative deal with your concerns now? Ignore you, schedule another golf game for herself or himself? make another pretentious statement? divert the issue to the future or what? It is always the duty of every Member of Parliament, elected Legislative Members also to represent their local constituents, as well as the good welfare of all Canadians, and to also insure the proper application of all of the laws locally and nationally too. Being self centered only is also never acceptable. I have found that the best way to deal with an elected representative is to see how they do personally respond to my personal email, letter for in reality how they generally do treat me is also how they do treat generally all others.. I amongst many other persons too am rightfully getting rightfully now tired of the too often also incompetent, useless, pretentious, poor, lying elected, or hired Ministers and with any of their poor civil and public servants, colleagues, subordinates now as well. I no longer quietly accept even their inadequate replies to my correspondences and thus their wrong abuses, their lies, pretentious services now as well especially towards me now too. I rightfully do let everyone know what they are really like based on my own personal experiences so we can all deal with positively it too. Anyone abusing even me is also a serious concern for the governments and I also do make sure of it too. I too have clearly learned that if the wicked, evil, immoral persons, even these false abusers of me do not next now feel real personal negative repercussions they will have no reasons to even still stop their own immoral abuse of me, my human and legal rights and those of any other persons now too in Canada. You and I do have human rights you know even in Canada, and I do request the governments to do their rightful duties and deal specifically with all of this too. And if any of them they are not going to do this all properly they all should clearly know by now that I will rightfully complain in writing again and again to all too till they do, or till they get kicked out, replaced.. and then I will also deal with their eventual replacements.. and I have dealt with many of them the last 15 years too. Eventually once exposed the bad guys even in politics, in the civil and public services, churches too they do get removed, replaced. I do rightfully want valid actions, results rightfully in reponse to my letters too and not cause I want any attention. Writing a letter to an elected representative measuring their actual responses to my letters is one of the two best ways to actually see what they the Politicians are really like now , in reality. By the way I have often noted that some of the most indifferent politicians were also the alcoholic ones, for all they care about is their next drink it seems..The next best way to measure a Politician’s personal, real effectiveness is to go to their office.. but sadly in 100 percent of the cases the response was really not any better there now as well. They really do not change if you write or visit them.. for they show you in both cases who they really are. I also do not put up rightfully with any of the bad responses but I do next expose it to all so we can all rightfully deal with it. And if any of them they are not going to pay to my issues properly they all should clearly know by now that I will rightfully complain in writing again and again to all too till they do, or till they get kicked out, replaced.. and then I will also deal with their eventual replacements.. as I have been doing the last 15 years.. this is now the mostly useless fourth federal solicitor general I write too… two had resigned in office during that time too. I have dealt with many elected officals the last 15 years too. Eventually once exposed the bad guys even in politics, in the civil and public services, churches too and they do get removed, replaced.   To deprive another of the intangible right of honest services.” is an immoral, illegal act in as deemed so by the courts in the US now and it also applies to any of our Members of Canada’s parliament, Members of the provincial governments too

FOLLOW UP ON BELL SYMPATICO

You get what you hire, pay for, and all that glitters is not gold. Now for about 16 months I have dealt both with the clearly, pretentious  inadequate Bell tech support mostly  in India, and  the too often useless, pretentious Bell Accounting Billing now too.
 
Attention: Bell executive Care, Bell billing- accounting,  and Bell’s Sasha Rollins-  May 6, 2008,  Letter # 278
 
My bad Bell internet system was totally down even 3 days two weeks ago, it is totally down again today **, and you did not even credit me for any of this, but Bell next still phones me again today and demands my payment still. Unbelievable and ridiculous. You have mislead me in your advertising for your Bell Internet service works adequately only one week in four in the last 9 months in my direct personal Bell experience now too. Your Bell support services too often do not even do that now as well.  No doubt about it that Bell has lied and over advertised it’s capability, reliability, services too even to me. Unacceptable.
 
 I was still very surprised next when you even wrote to me last week to  tell me  even as to how many letters I can send,  and what also to whom? and what I could and could not write about Bad  Bell  in my emails?  and what next you also will want to write my emails of me too?  Absurdity for you to demand any of this from me  for  are really falsely dreaming..  But now next  Bell  itself can phone me today again, this afternoon and harasses me for more payments for more of Bell’s breach of contract. This is still unacceptable harassment of me again and absurdity too that all can see. This Unauthorized Bell watchdog needs to firstly look at itself and deal rightfully even firstly with it’s much too many customer contract violations, abuses, and ASAP even in reality. When I called back Bell I often have to wait  a long time and next because they  had  even disconnected me, hanged up on me, pr promise to call back  and no one at Bell next had even called me back as Bell had promised to do so again even  today. I get a still bad service from you..  Contract obligations wrongfully are solely one way with Bell, I pay and you provide a poor service.
 
As posted on the net the Bell supervisor had promised me last week that my complaints would be all fully investigated, adequately dealt with and no one will trouble me from Bell now next too. I got that in writing too 
” 11:30:11 AM Ram (SCI-11579) I will make sure this is the last time , you are chatting for this particular issue. I will put all my notes and submit the feedback on behalf of you to Sympatico and get this issue investigated as early as possible.
11:30:30 AM PK I will believe it when I see it
11:30:33 AM PK bye “..
Bell’s USELESS Sympatico Billing  
http://thenonconformer.blogspot.com/  But often Bell lies to me, and to  others too , that I know for sure many many many times too firsthand..
 
But now today this afternoon I next still just got another unacceptable harassing computer phone call from Bell’s Billing, who in their one sided greedy pursuit of the contractual obligations, falsely overlook the fact when Bell they firstly they did not keep my side of the contract  as my many letters that you admit in writing to me that you have received now where I  have detailed, that I specially had not requested or authorized any internet upgrades, changes in 2008 nor had I requested any modem upgrades but yet I was charged for this, and I objected to all of this and I had asked you many times to  rightfully  take this of my bill but you wrongfully did not.. You have no proof that I in writing I had authorized these changes too. So the really crappy Bell does not deal with my posted complaints to them but they want to harass me again with phone calls for  my money.. Deal with all my complaints firstly if you want to  be paid for anything! Deal with your false breach of my contract obligations now too, and my requested payments for my bad services, problems now from Bell too.
 
Rightfully Stop now these harassing Bell phone calls too. Now RSVP ASAP and deal adequately with all of my complaints now to you too , thank you. Unless you still lido want everyone to get much more emails ?

Posted on the net too..
 
** 2 WEEKS AGO I HAD THE SAME  NON WORKING INTERNET PROBLEM I HAD TODAY AND MANY TIMES BEFORE.. BECAUSE THOSE USELESS TECH NERDS IN INDIA WOULD LIE TO ME AND SAY THE PROBLEM IS EITHER A DEFECTIVE MODEM this is my second 2 wire modem now too,   or  they say the problem is the customer’s  computer cache , VIRUS, SPYWARE, AND NOT at all BELL ITSELF.  At my own insistence a  more detailed  INVESTIGATION into the matter was made  next  BY BELL’S CANADIAN TECH NERD IN NEW BRUNSWICK which RATHER REVEALED THAT it turns out that FIRSTLY the Bell INTERNET SERVICE itself was was down, and in the process THE RESTART NEXT  reboots each of  the customer’s 2 wire modem, and the reboot next would not accept many of the user’s existing password unless one letter at least was in upper case, a common knowledge only to a few at Bell but not to most of the customers, and not the  rest of the Bell support personnel, especially in India  sadly. So Bell you have bad telephone lines, and bad equipment  and clearly ignorant, bad Bell techs making it all worse ehh? Those much to many Bell liars in India tend to falsely blame the customer too often.. not their own tech ignorance,

  I was still very surprised next when a person from Bell now even wrote to me to  tell me  even what I could and could not write to them in my emails and also how many letters now even too .. for they are dreaming.. dreaming absurdities.. what about some real repentance from them firstly for their own clearly unacceptable, undeniable poor and immoral acts firstly and rightfully still too. Who does he think he is? I know what he is, an abuser  still, an unacceptable bully too!!
 
Bell has often itself found a an excuse for not performing a specific job assigned to them under the  contract agreement but fooled few in the process now too as to how really immoral Bell was, is  and that includes their false capping, terminations of the customers unlimited downloads 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 a large major corporation successfully before 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 non breaching 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.”

Subject: Bell executive Care Sasha Rollins
Attention Bell executive Care and Bell’s Sasha Rollins May 5, 2008

So ” based on Bell’s term of service, your numerous emails will no longer be tolerated..” nor my right to complain, my right of free speech to you too ? Another PM Stephen Harper bad act clearly too. Dream on..

Per your letter sent to me dated April 30, 3008 So you state in writing you will terminate my contract, my internet services within 30 days, Specifically May 30, 2008 because I have written you to you too many letters of rightful complaints. Specific email letters that prove that you have not kept your contract obligations to me the last many years even. That you guys lied when you said you will phone me back, and get back to me about my rightful complaints too. My telling the truth to all is according to you now Harassing language? Your one sided abuse of me on your customer site was also wrongfully acceptable to you now too? yes I HAD REPEATED TO YOU THAT THAT that you are in breach OF CONTRACT AND THAT IS IS YOU THAT ARE NOW FALSELY HARASSING ME.. Still you do refer to your previous 3 letters, but only one received this year, I also still refer you to the 277 rightful email letters that firstly you did not deal with adequately still too, and yes on top of that you even have not returned one phone call to make this year Sasha Rollins now too… and yes now many of the letters are posted on the net since October 2007. Is that all you could do in reply to my many rightful complaints, cut of my internet service? Still yes everyone saw on the net, witnessed in the news media, governments, that you had , and did not deny Bell ‘s wrong doings that I have detailed now in 277 emails as well. And now it is too late to do so as well even.

Now whey did I expect you rightfully to be a decent, honorable persons to start of with. It was clearly my mistake. I still expect you rightfully to pay me my full damages I had previously rightfully requested for your unacceptable and undeniable contract breaches to me too.. Even one year payment of free internet services, and $1000.00 for my damages, troubles, problems.

PS: This letter is also Posted on the net too.. by the way most people will treat you the way you do treat others, and they will suspend your services next too likely. For the way you treat me is undeniably likely the way you treat many other persons, Bell customers, I am not an employee of Bell rather that you can Internet fire, but a Bell customer, that you had failed in your job clearly to be of adequate service to me and to resolve my complaints adequately and undeniably now too. We all do also readily see often in the News now as to how Bell undeniably ABUSES, mistreats their other customers too, the ISP subcontractors too.

Next a letter to the President of Bell’s office accusing them of helping thieves at Bell to steal from me too?

Subject: SaskTel fires employee after allegations worker filed false sales transactions – Yahoo! Canada News

Attention Sasha Rollins – Bell, Bell executive care

“Canadian Press REGINA – An official with SaskTel says the telephone company has adopted new procedures after allegations arose that a worker filed false sales transactions to gain a commission. The Crown agency says it’s working with its lawyers to try to recover about $24,000, while the employee, who worked for a subsidiary in Calgary, has been fired. The employee was working for Direct West, SaskTel’s business directory service in Alberta. Michelle Englot, a spokeswoman for SaskTel, says head office will now send a letter to anyone purchasing advertising in such publications within 10 days. She says it’s hoped purchases will be confirmed that way, instead of relying on sales representatives. ” http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/080505/national/sasktel_false_sales

Now I am not alone here too, for I have already man times had detailed to you in writing, and to the news media, the RCMP, that another Bell customer had also complained on the Bell Symaptico Customer forum this year that a Bell employee lied, made false sales transactions to gain a commission , and he had made changes to his internet account, without the customer’s knowledge and permission, authorization, and you next have specially not even denied this. I had specially said to you often too that I never had in 2008 nnver had authorized any useless Sympatico internet upgrade nor for that matter had asked for any modem upgrade. Now is it still your wrongful practice to allow such thefts, fraud by Bell employees the reasons you have wrongfully not deal with this , nor had denied it back to me now as well, and have not deal with theissue, and was why you have also tried to wrongfully here silence me too?

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.  http://anyonecare.wordpress.com/2008/07/13/misapplications-of-the-laws-in-canada/
 
Imagine that Bell has been in Business for many years and is still 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 many times too now . I 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” cause Bell seems to change it to suit themselves..  (Presently I am with Acanac Inc. http://www.acanac.ca 1-866-281-3538, and do  see their speed test too).

The ISP wrongfully sees itself as the sole judge of disputes in their contract obligations too. This sort of contract, where the subscriber is considered to agree by signing up for service rather than by active negotiation, is given extra scrutiny by the courts. Any wiggle room or ambiguity is usually resolved in favor of the consumer rather than the company.
 
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. “ Posted on by marksy 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….  led me to what probably amounted to my 15th – 20th phone call in the last 2-3 months.”
  
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.  But in  unacceptable direct contrast the now  recived, mailed  statements for the subsequent months for the monthly high speed unlimited  internet billing statements  are not at all similar, not even as simple, but unacceptably they are unacceptably distorted still, confusing , full of unacceptable irregularities, unacceptable extra charges  now next.. that I unacceptably have many time now asked you by phone, in writing to rightfully deal with and correct. Amongst my many other rightul demands to you too now. IT IS SHEER UNACCEPTABLE  STUPIDITY, DISSERVICE ON YOUR PART THAT I HAVE EVEN TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT THIS FOR MONTHS TOO. My monthly high speed unlimited  internet billing statement  for  February 2008  firstly  do not show any services and equipment charges, etc, at all , note none  at all,  but unacceptable in March  2008 Bell  shows me  some new, unacceptable different services and unacceptable  equipment  charges of $103.90 and next  the other charges  of 286.97 .

Please note I today by mail  have received your unofficial  my monthly high speed unlimited  internet billing statements from you for the last 6 months unsigned and incomplete firstly, so how can you EVEN expect rightfully now for me to pay you when you cannot delievr what I have asked the last 6 weeks to me in this? On top of that while the statements for November 2007, December 2007 and January 2008 monthly high speed unlimited  internet billing statement showing a total service charge of  54.13 for January 2008 were paid for and they are all very clear, satisfactory. 

AND I HAVE ALREADY DETAILED MY OBJECTIONS TO THESE UNACCEPTABLE AND UNSPECIFIED CHARGES, AND WHAT TO KNOW AS TO WHAT ACCOUNT THESE CHARGES WERE APPLIED TOO NOW TOO?
 
Now since undeniably too I was not aware OF THEM EVEN, GOT NO NOTICE OF THEM OFFICIALLY TOO,  I did not authorize, or pre approve nor have not authorized YOU TO CONTINUE ANY BANK ACCOUNTS WITHDRAWALS to the changes, OR FIRSTLY STILL  TO MAKE ANY CHANGES TO MY ACCOUNT AS WELL these changes are all inapplicable and unbillable to me still too and rightfully so.
 
You have once again unacceptably violated my contract agreement, obligations, for which I have asked you rightfully now for further dames too undeniably as well.

PS p2pnet traffic shaping digest The folks who run Bell Canada figured they could get away with “managing” clients’ bandwidth without their permission, and without them noticing. They were dead wrong on both counts. Here’s a set of p2pnet stories on the Bell Canada traffic throttling scandal. It’s a work in progress with regular updates.
 
 Canadian opposition leader Stéphane Dion should support the National Union of Public and General Employees (NUPGE) campaign for government action to protect Net neutrality in Canada, says the union. “On behalf of the 340,000 members of the National Union, I am asking the Liberal Party of Canada to take a clear stand in support of seeing the principle of net neutrality enshrined in Canadian law,”
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 also do rightfully think it’s really reprehensible that Bell, etc., had now  advertised unlimited download service and then next complain when you actually take them up on their offer. If a user wants to take full advantage of the service they pay for, they should be entitled to it by law now too.  Still  if they’re unwilling to provide the bandwidth I pay for, during the full duration that I pay for it, then they shouldn’t have been be telling me they can. This is why cable TV & broadband need to be regulated  like  electricity and phone. http://anyonecare.wordpress.com/
  
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! https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2008/04/27/basic-contract-law/
