Canada’s big bad Telecom



 I saw Big Telecom’s army of lobbyists, eye to eye, at a hearing last week.   

It was amazing and sickening to hear them argue that Canadians should be blocked from affordable Internet access options.  They are powerful, but we have a new crucial opportunity to fight back. Josh Tabish  OpenMedia


Big Telecom plans to use a crucial, rapidly-approaching hearing  to kill indie Internet services in Canada. If successful, they’ll be able to block you from companies offering affordable, next-generation Internet services, and continue to price-gouge Canadians


We’re facing a situation where, soon, your only choice could be between price-gouging Big Telecom giants – an unbelievable power grab for Big Telecom.


We know that Canadians pay some of the highest prices in the world for some of the worst Internet service.  And a big part this is because Big Telecom has been given gatekeeper powers before…

…a nd abused them.

Net neutrality” has been built into the fabric of the Internet since its creation — but it is also a principle that we cannot take for granted.  We cannot allow Internet service providers (ISPs) to restrict the best access or to pick winners and losers in the online marketplace for services and ideas.   So the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has to implement the strongest possible rules to protect net neutrality.” We cannot allow Internet service providers (ISPs) to restrict the best access or to pick winners and losers in the online marketplace for services and ideas,” “I believe the FCC should create a new set of rules protecting net neutrality and ensuring that neither the cable company nor the phone company will be able to act as a gatekeeper, restricting what you can do or see online.” Obama said in a statement released by the White House.  President Obama’s call for “net neutrality” – the notion that any and all content should be treated equally by Internet providers – should cause the Federal Communications Commission to regulate broadband service like a utility as a way to protect consumers’ ability to access all content without a threat of connectivity being throttled. Us President Obama called for prohibiting ISPs from blocking or deliberately slowing any legal content. His proposals also include a recommendation to mostly ban paid-for “fast-lane” access, in which a content provider refusing to pay extra would be subject to slower Internet transmission and to  reclassify consumer broadband Internet service and regulate it as if it’s a utility – like electricity and water – as many consumer advocacy groups have asked for a similar strategy to protect unfettered access.  The simple, common-sense  rules include:

  • No blocking.  If a consumer requests access to a website or service, and the content is legal, your ISP should not be permitted to block it.  That way, every player — not just those commercially affiliated with an ISP — gets a fair shot at your business.
  • No throttling.  Nor should ISPs be able to intentionally slow down some content or speed up others — through a process often called “throttling” — based on the type of service or your ISP’s preferences.
  • Increased transparency.  The connection between consumers and ISPs — the so-called “last mile” — is not the only place some sites might get special treatment. The  FCC to make full use of the transparency authorities the court recently upheld, and if necessary to apply net neutrality rules to points of interconnection between the ISP and the rest of the Internet.
  • No paid prioritization.  Simply put: No service should be stuck in a “slow lane” because it does not pay a fee.  That kind of gatekeeping would undermine the level playing field essential to the Internet’s growth.  An explicit ban on paid prioritization and any other restriction that has a similar effect.

end fees for getting monthly bills on paper

Federal legislation will end fees for getting monthly bills on paper:

The federal government will introduce legislation to end what is called pay-to-pay, that is charging people for a monthly bill on paper. The met under the auspices of the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunication Commission on Thursday and agreed to exempt some people, including seniors, the disabled, military vets and people without Internet access. The CRTC said it wasn’t enough. The minister says Canadians expect lower prices and better service from the telecoms. The Public Interest Advocacy Centre has estimated consumers pay $734 million every year in fees to get bills on paper.“We do not believe that Canadians should pay more to receive a paper copy of their telephone or wireless bill,” Moore said. Porking the barrel with extra costs is an. They have a bad motivation for  to keep the extra fees in place for as long as possible. The cost of invoicing a client is a normal business cost.

Can Bell do it’s job and provide me now their proper services?

 Canadians can access broadband using either wire line or wireless facilities but in order to meet the high demands of cell phones, Canada’s major telecommunications firms and their subs they are  failing to deliver the capacities  as originally promised, Canada’s major telecommunications firms and their subs they are  not keeping their contractual obligations, are falsely  cutting back on internet capacity and speeds,  so all of this is still a major issue with Canada’s major telecommunications firms and their subs..  while  they advertise a certain speed but likely you next still only get half of it as they cap their downloads and speeds..
Sadly, as a recent survey indicates, 9-out-of-ten Canadians have no clue that their use of the Internet has been so heavily clipped by ‘market forces’: bandwidth caps, excess use charges, and restrictions on what people can and cannot do with their Internet connections in the major providers ‘acceptable user policies’.
 In the old dial-up days the most a user could reasonably consume would be 56K, and that only under ideal circumstances. An ISP could service approximately 28 dial-up customers with a single T1 without oversubscribing, but since few customers continually used their maximum, oversubscribing was common, sometimes as much as 20 to 1. ISPs made money and users rarely saw congestion outside of their modems.; Broadband has changed all that. Now, a single broadband customer can consume a T1 all by him or herself. So they  major telecommunications firms and their subs next lie and claim that  Broadband has been a money losing proposition for just about every ISP there is, as deployment and support costs are huge and monthly income is small while  they profess to make vast, enormous  amount of money from their cell phone usages..However, by international comparative standards, investment in Canada has been weak, inadequate.   Yes the ISPs and Cell phones firms had  mostly  lied, misadvertised the services, oversubscribed so much they falsely and  routinely do slow next down  your connection and  that’s why it can work FINE at 4:00 am when 90% of people are in bed…
Acanac itself thus also  caps during the business day.. even because the ISP’s falsely had originally promised quite a bit but there’s still no real full  services from them making use of what they were trying to sell to us and partly because what they were, are also now selling is far from what would be needed for any significant customer. Creating “caps” is plain crap . It is a too easy way for them.
 So many persons switched to cable where there is not the same  need to cap. (So to speak).  Bell’s own  recent comments about actual costs suggests that it relies on similar ranges to provide a best guess at cost per gigabyte. Yes there is no apparent link between the ‘excess usage charges’ that the dominant players are charging (i.e. from .50 cents per Gigabit (GB) to $5 per GB), and the cost of bandwidth. Experts peg the cost per gigabit as being anywhere between .01 cents and 10 cents. Even if we take the high end of this range, excess usage charges still entail an extortionate 500 to 5000 percent mark-up on costs. Canada stands alone in terms of the near universal use of ‘bandwidth caps’ and excess usage fees for Internet use. It is sadly immoral,  ludicrous  that Bell itself is is charging customers at least 10x more than the actual costs. Bell does fudge the costs numbers to support whatever self-serving claim they make.  It’s “free money” as far as they are concerned. Once established, it will be hard to remove. Especially since they can use such a scheme to constrain usage or eliminate competition.

Canadians are even paying more for  all communications services. Canada’s broadcast and telecom regulator has released new numbers on how much Canadians spend on communications services, revealing the total bill for the average household climbed to $191 per month last year.


The Federal Trade Commission says AT&T’s practice of slowing down the connection speeds of unlimited-data customers who tap excessive amounts of data is a failure to deliver on the promise of “unlimited.” As a result, the FTC on Tuesday filed a federal court complaint against AT&T, charging the wireless provider with misleading customers who signed up for an unlimited-data plan only to see their connection slowed in an industry process called “throttling. “AT&T promised its customers ‘unlimited’ data, and in many instances, it has failed to deliver on that promise,” . “The issue here is simple: ‘unlimited’ means unlimited.”


Consumers are being caught in the middle of greedy telecomm companies.. It’s the Telcomm companies who have rooked us all and laughing all the way the bank.


Bell  too now has made money not only by their too often unjustifiable  rates increase but also by their false extra billings. Bell is not at all known as a decent, moral company, holding to acceptable professionals standards, for that matter clearly too none of the major Canada telecommunication firms are, rather monetary greed has overtaken them all.. Bell often claimed that it was not making enough money but still became rich enough to buy CTV.. The Bell customer complaints still abound too.


When  I had agree to go into a contract with my internet provider at a fixed  fee, for specific services, including repairs, this is not an opportunity for the internet provider  Acanac next to  falsely, unscrupulously  try to shaft me with extra billing of 100 dollars to check my internal phone line, a fee that I  had already paid last year, and what they want me now to pay it every year too?  as it seems to be the common practice instead of rightfully offering me their past free promised  support services.


Now I have noticed that for years when it rains my internet services is crappy, slows down.. and recently my browsers have been very slow in loading, and I cannot even watch the news video at CTV news or at the National Post cause they cut out.. Now I have suspected the problem is squirrels, there are 6 in my back yard this week.. Note this also “ A Winnipeg man says squirrels are taking a bite out his telephone lines. James Mattson, who lives on Christie Road in south Winnipeg, said it’s been happening since last spring. “There’s something in that wire that the squirrels seem to snack on. What they’ll do is they’ll burrow into the outer core of the wire which is vinyl or plastic and then there’s bundles of wires inside and they’ll pick away at that,” he said.  James Mattson points to the telephone lines that squirrels have damaged near his home. (Jill Coubrough/CBC) Yes it’s impacting Mattson’s services. His phone, Internet. “It’s frustrating. It just keeps on happening and happening ,” he said, adding it’s happened nine times in two months. So squirrels damaging wires is a common industry problem. Deal with it.. and stop falsely lying, passing the buck as it being my problem solely.

Bell insistence that it needs proof that all of my own computer system has been first tested, falsely still treats me like me being computer illiterate.. 

Of course they have all been tested… why is it that the system slow downs only occur mostly on rainy days.. PS it does not rain in my house…

PS they still have yet to fix the problem

They claim they have to first replace the modem to see if it is the problem and then they will check the exterior phone lines.. Rubbish they replaced the modem now even 3 times and what next?? Still bad services..

Subject: Re: [GQV-79396]: Can Bell do it’s job and provide me now their proper services?
 my address and telephone number is the same as the one you bill me too.. Now quit stalling and fix the problems.. are you going to replace all the modems in my apartment building now too?? cause there is 4 of us at least with the same problems too..
Now many of us firsthand know how lousy Bell services is and thus now Acanac/Bell is no different!!! Such as relationship is rather  ludicrous, impossible. Buyer beware..
and why was the Internet system down all last weekend? after the 3rd new modem was installed too..
as usual, my internet was down again since  Friday evening – Sept 19, with no email access, no internet.. Saturday, and Sunday too…

The system works great on a nice sunny day, but not when it rains, at least once a week. I had installed their new Modem and after all this I still have network connectivity problems, i lose the network connection periodically..

Now  the clearly immoral, buck passing employees at Acanac still do  find false reasons why not to deal with my rightful complaints to them even months later. Sept 24,2014…
and if you think that I am going to renew my contract with Acanac, or recommend them to others you  better think twice.
Again as to how to make a complaint

Step 1 – Contact a customer service representative discuss any concerns you have about your service preferably not in writing cause most of them seem not to be able to read English.

If you’re not completely satisfied with the resolution at this step,   proceed to step 2.

Step 2 – Speak with a pretentious, useless in denial supervisor
If you’re not completely satisfied with the resolution provided at this step,   proceed to step 3. 

Step 3 – Contact the pretentious  Customer Relations Centre and they will gladly  disconnect your services

 Note: You must complete the first two steps of the escalation process to have your problem supposedly to be resolved in the most efficient manner for them, not yours..

Additional Useless steps


A – If you were not satisfied with the resolution provided in the previous steps, you may file a complaint with the Commissioner for Complaints for Telecommunications Services (CCTS). The CCTS is an agency independent of the telecommunications industry. Their mandate is to resolve complaints of individual and small business retail customers about their telecommunications services.
If you have a complaint about your services, including local or long distance phone service, mobile phone service or Internet service, you must try to resolve it with Bell before contacting the CCTS. If you have done so and have been unable to reach a satisfactory resolution, CCTS may be able to help you, free of charge.Learn more about CCTS at or call toll-free at 1 888 221-1687.

B- Go public, posit it all on the Net.
 “Absolutely horrible customer service, they are there to take your money and not provide any support at all.   “  ”  Speed is not stable and tech support is very slow. I’ve used Acanac for more than 5 years, rarely have issue with them but once there’s one, it takes weeks to resolve it. very disappointing.”  “ STAY AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY!!!!!! This is the worse service I have ever been given in my life.” “ But the customer service is really disappointing.   “  “. Speed has been on the slow to very slow side and I have had my connection lost completely 3 times.   “   “ I used this service for almost 3 years, and wana say that Acanac service becomes the worse and worse, so I cancelled my contract with it. Reasons: 1. Low speed, 2.I didn’t have the entrance to the Internet during several hours almost every day for the last half year. 3. When I tried to reach their technical support service it was a real headache for me. I think they simply ignored my request, but they answering me immediately when I sent the cancelation notice to them. I have to state that Acanac doesn’t care about it’s customers.  “  “  -Service was good, until your service slows or or stops working and you have to reach out for help.  “  “  Finally get useless support email 16 hours after sending in my ticket suggesting I check the cable to the demarc etc etc. Issues continued for a week, customer service never improved. “ “  absolutely terrible customer service. “ “ Acanac has made my life a living hell. Telephone wait times are 45-50 minutes if it is your lucky day or no one answers. Even if someone answers you will quickly realise the guy has no clue or has no inclination to help you. Once the guy was dumb enough to ask me “why did you not send us an email?” Duh!!! I do not have internet?!!! SO PLEASE, PLEASE BE WITHOUT AN INTERNET THAN SIGNING UP WITH THIS COMPANY. THEY ARE HORRIBLE. “  “ However, when you need technical support, you could be put on the phone waiting for hours..  “   Much is promised when inquiring by their sales people, however tech support is non-existent. DO NOT USE UNLESS YOU ENJOY SUFFERING. Tech response is hidden behind a very primitive email service.   DSL connection speed is no better than dial up. “  “Internet goes down at least 4- 6 times a year. You have to call them to get good customer service. Their email and text service is the worst, specially the email response is just a copy and paste , they don’t even read what your problem is.” “  After 2 years, I have had enough – Never again, and I will make sure I tell as many people as I can to never give this company any business “
Let me be clear that the assigned personnel at the CCTS are also technically incompetent, likely, clearly  another typical useless buck passing  government employee who cannot likely find  a real job in the private sector.. Months after I  had filed my original complaints, they phone back to me and ask the same useless questions am I familiar with their  own review process.. so how can I be familiar with their review process when 2 separate persons have phoned me in the last 3 months said they were reviewing my full original complaints and none have ever yet come back with a single credible fact, find, report.. these CCTS people doing the report even still now falsely seem to want me or prepare a full report myself, with a  full detailed backup so they can rubber stamp it next merely..  she wants more information from me Cause my past writings to them are too long to read she said, to review CCTS  said.. how all absurd.  Useless  CCTS personnel  just like those at Acanac. Acanac useless solution to deal with my internet problem was to uselessly replace the modem 3 times even..  
CCTS do note that my original contract with ACANAC paid for my MasterCard as well as the terms of agreements are all there with Acanac and so also also all of my last up letters of complaints to accent about their poor services and their poor Reponses. The undeniable obvious evidence  that my internet speed has been capped is there too.

Rogers throttling

Rogers throttling may breach net neutrality rules.. Rogers throttles file-sharing traffic from BitTorrent more than any other internet provider in North America and may be violating Canadian net neutrality guidelines, a U.S. researcher says. “So I think consumers would have a basis to complain and the CRTC would have a basis to act.” He suggested that perhaps the Canadian regulator is “a bit too cozy” with large Canadian telecommunications companies. “I think they do give too much weight to Bell Canada and some of these heavyweight operators,” he said. “I think that’s starting to change now that they’re starting to look more carefully at the use of this throttling.”

In Canada, all large ISPs have admitted to slowing down BitTorrent traffic, and some do so to a great extent. Since the start of the measurements Rogers has continuously throttled more than three-quarter of all BitTorrent traffic, and there are no signs that this will stop. During the first quarter of 2010 the two other large Canadian ISPs, Bell and Shaw, were throttling 16 and 14 percent respectively. Videotron on the other hand has never slowed down more than 7 percent, and only 3 percent during the last

 CRTC’s internet traffic management or “net neutrality” rules.
Those rules state that technology to manage internet traffic:
Must be designed to address “a defined need and nothing more.”
Should be neither “unjustly discriminatory nor unduly preferential.”

Syracuse University information studies researcher Milton Mueller he thinks consumers should choose internet providers who use internet traffic management technology that targets points of congestion rather than singling out particular applications.

Mueller said his future research will examine whether other protocols besides BitTorrent are being throttled by ISPs and will look into the use of deep packet inspection for other purposes such as copyright policing, placing ads, government surveillance and censorship.

Canadians—gamers in particular—have been furious with Rogers over its Internet throttling practices, which were recently exposed as being the worst in the entire world. Today, progress was made in the Canadian Gamers Organization’s battle against the Toronto-headquatered telco. The CGO sent a letter to the CRTC complaining that Rogers was violating Canada’s Internet openness rules. The CRTC has now stated that it will move the complaint into its enforcement division, implying further action and the high possibility of a penalty against Rogers. However, the CRTC is not able to punish companies financially, so the damage must be dealt in other ways“Earlier this week, Rogers told the CBC that it is within full compliance with CRTC policy and guidelines,” CGO co-founder Jason Koblovsky says. “We are now certain that’s not the case.”“In violating these rules, Rogers has shown that it values its own narrow commercial interests over that of its customers and Canada’s digital economy,” adds Steve Anderson, OpenMedia’s Executive Director. “Big Telecom is out of control and they need to be reined in before they damage our innovation economy further.”

*Bell’s Consumer complaints , abuses and their increase was so predictable

Have you noticed that when it rains your Home  internet  speed reduces drastically?
 Bell still needs to be regulated, and prosecuted for lying too.  They lied, Mislead about the internet speeds one gets at home
Bell lying does not tell all of  the customers that it’s ISP is lousy beforehand..
Bell has been doing local upgrades or reducing the internet  speeds  so they can have more capacities for cellular phones  for the last ten years and yet still LYING SAYING ALL THE ISP FAULT IS ONLY  IN MY HOME TOO.

 And  note the term up to.. the speed can drop by 90 percent by the time it reaches you  A 2013 study by the Ottawa-based Public Interest Advocacy Centre found that most Canadians think they can expect to receive the maximum speed advertised for the internet package they subscribe to..

However, the study also found that internet service providers didn’t know what speeds customers actually get and there is much  evidence that the maximum speeds customers get are much  lower than advertised. So who does anything good about this in reality and how often?   NO ONE! 

Bell and Acanac NEXT tells me I have a high speed internet, even an optical one, but yet I continue to have an internet connectivity problem still.. and   low speeds
When I on my high speed computer, with a large hard drive, an adequate memory now too, I try to view an internet video, on different internet sites too with no other software applications running in the background as well  during the weekend, the peak hours the video now still is extremely choppy or it fails to load at all or It stops every 5 seconds!clearly due to inadequate  connection speed or congestion in the internet.  The same video next  runs well during non peak hours. This is still totally unacceptable.
Why does it takes months  and months even  for the CRTC to deal with a clearly open and shut case. .. where to date even  Bell- Acanac has lied, abused me, not provided their promised internet services. Well?

Your actual slow speed on your computer end may be a result of your local line quality or distance from a DSLAM. It is entirely possible the full problem is on Bell’s end with their infrastructure, or lack thereof, and/or rarely your own homes line. DSL and Cable both are  cumbersome,  finicky technology. Prices often are first 12 months, and then it jacks up to double or more? Those that might disagree, I would also ask how much real help at the Bell DSL support centers any time of the day?

A Digital Subscriber Line Access Multiplexer (DSLAM, ) allows telephone lines to make extended  connections to the Internet. It is a network device, located in the telephone exchanges of the service providers, that connects multiple customer Digital Subscriber Lines (DSLs) to a high-speed Internet backbone line using multiplexing techniques  By placing remote DSLAMs at locations remote to the telephone exchange, telephone companies can extend   DSL service to locations previously beyond effective range, but not all areas are covered or get a good Bell access still.

Accanac had mentioned on their internet site that they do not cap their downloads.. but they conveniently had forgot to also say to all of the potential customers on their site that they lease their services from Bell and that Bell itself still regularly between 4 pm to 2 am caps their downloads.. when confronted with this they Acanac Inc do reply that they do not cap or throttle their downloads but Bell does.. what a misleading play on words. What else do thye lie about too now? The CRTC are not bowing to the whims of big business – they’re approving Bell’s throttling, but rather thye must stop the   throttling,


So when will I rightfully get from Bell what I had promised and paid for, decent, reliable high speed service for I have not seen it the last ten years.
Yes I have seen for years, including this week, many many Bell employees working at the local substations.
Now firstly Bell STILL measuring my Internet systems reliability at the initial maximum speed at Bell is an immoral, absurd, ludicrous approach.. so do more honestly measure rather the actual final speed, reliability at the customer’s destination, my home.. the actual minimum Bell speed provided… and it does next greatly varies and differs. Bells advertised speeds are thus falsely misleading to all consumers. But even speed does not compensate for the actual reliability of the internet service provided.
-NOW why is it as it happened to me yesterday that when it comes to weekends I have major connectivity problems still.. never mind the excuses when can I have a decent promised paid for service?
I UNACCEPTABLY HAVE HAD BELL’S PROMISES to me broken all the time too now!  and why do you think I have asked the  useless Cons, the federal government to regulate Bell now too?
Bell’s Consumer complaints , abuses and their increase was so predictable because Canada’s too often major telecommunications companies, the 3 Stooges, for they  too have not changed nor their abusive behaviors Bell included now. Bell (TSX:BCE), Telus (TSX:T) and Rogers (TSX:RCI.B) “lead the ladder in terms of complaints”. In total 3,747 complaints were  received in the 2009-2010 monitoring period, up from those in 2008-2009. 
Bruce Cran of the Consumers’ Association of Canada said he believes the statistics could be even higher because the No. 1 complaint he receives is about cellphone contracts. “Consumers deserve a whole lot better deal,” Cran said from Vancouver. “I think consumers are being oversold on their cellphone contracts. I think they’re deliberately made over complicated, certainly by the big three,” Cran said referring to Rogers, Bell and Telus. A nagging problem for many consumers was when they asked to take their telephone numbers from one service provider to another and then had problems with billing or service. “This surprises consumers considering that the industry heavily promotes the ability to change providers but keep your phone number, and the portrayal is one of a simple and smooth process,”  “We just think it’s wrong that if you have the right to go to another provider, you should be able to do that without essentially being double billed for a month,” 44 per cent of complaints involved billing errors and 35 per cent were related to contract complaints. 
Consumer complaints about wireless service on the rise  Toronto Star -Canadians are registering more complaints about cellphone contracts and billing information because of a flood of overly complex or confusing options and company errors, according to a new report.

Are you also frustrated with your service provider? You’re not alone for sure.


Which reminds me my Bell internet services is still disastrous, unreliable, I have connectivity problems even as of lately periodically when I have no downloads even, I have email sending problems as well.. and what Bell does not know how to fix this still and it wants more money? dream on..
It is absolutely pathetic, disgusting that I have to fight with Bell, be  threatened with a lawsuit, all  to get my rightful  matters settled in the end.. and next bad history with Bell likley repeats itself still too.. Do all  consumers have to go through this process now as well?
People often ask me where is the Consumer affairs ministers in all of this still? sleeping too, who with?
They Bell do  fix one problem and they seem to create another. Here is the reality Bell’s existing Internet system in still not totally  adequate, it has defects, shortcomings, something they never seem to admit or tell others.  Plus in the process of upgrading, modernization, creativity Bell continuously makes changes to it’s internet supply services, which next cause significant connectivity problems with some of their existing, non compatible equipment,  as well as major problems for their related clients, major ISP problems. Major Problems  that Bell dishonestly covers up, lies about  and  tends never to admit  to, for fear of any negative repercussions, and for fear of being likley held financial responsible of any damages of course. This approach of Bell is all inexcusable still.. 


About a month ago the Commissioner for Complaints for Telecommunications (CCTS) released their annual study and found that 51% of the total telecom complaints (3,747) were regarding wireless. Billing errors (44%) and the contract disputes (35%) were at the top of the list.


The CCTS  created in 2007   is an independent and industry-funded agency that customers can dispute issues such as billing, contracts and service regarding telephone, wireless and Internet providers.


Now  the CRTC declared   that effective January 2011 all Canadian telecom service providers must join the CCTS.


It’s probably a good move for us customers? Now do not count your eggs yet. I have already used their services services twice,.


I recently filed a complaint with the CCTS-CRTC and TWICE they gave me a useless response the last one  justifying Bell’s bad acts. This was not the kind of honest service we expect from them

Its servers and lines, EQUIPMENT AND CARDS are all presently functioning correctly. 

 and so I rightfully even did that now TOO many times too..
and Bell next here seems always to  lie  and says there never is anything wrong with their internet system, the problem is elsewhere,. I have about a decade of bad experiences on this with Bell now.
Bell’s  phone lines are reliable cause they are not as complicated as their internet systems..
Normally my internet is on 24 hours per day but this week next my internet access problem started when I logged off the internet and next tried to log back on.. I was unable to do so. I would occasionally get DSL access but no internet access. In the past reaccessing the internet has also been a very slow process.
If you check with the  Bell  files you will note that in the last decade I have already rightfully detailed, mailed at least 270 letters of complaints about Bell poor support services, their false lies, diversions including blaming firstly the customers or others for all of their own  internet inadequacies.. that is both immoral and absurd.. and for me nothing has really basically changed here the last 10 years with the Bell support personnel too.. .
The length of time, days, weeks and NOT 24 hours to service a customer ISP problem NOW by both Acanac / Bell  is also still unacceptable, and many new potential customers would be really rightfully displeased if they are made aware of it too.
Sadly lately the support services from Acanac DSL department has not been much better over THAT OF  Bell’s, both seem to predictable : they both lie, buck pass and are uncaring about the customers’ needs,concerns. Acanac  tech personnel even twice lied to me on the date that the replacement Acanac modem for testing purposes was sent.. now they claimed it was sent on the 16  Nov  in fact it was sent 2 days later on the 18 only.
Bell also still maintains that only their Bell high speed modems can effectively handle their internet systems and that the Acanac supplied  modems are all  inadequate to do so, and are the cause of my problem solved by me switching over to Bell or buying a Bell high speed modem.  Now Bell this week says again to me that Acanac supplies inferior, inadequate defective modems to their clients, as well and is this the reality? They Bell are clearly also working hard to discredit Acanac  and  to put Acanac  out of business by the dissatisfied Acanac customers.
Bell now is claiming that they are doing their best to fix the problems, fools can do their best too, but the their best is still inadequate, and  I only care about the end result rightly that they fix the problem immediately not any of their excuses..
Bell had also had  sent  me a mickey mouse technician this week who CLEARLY did  not know what to do for he had to continually phone BY CELLPHONE the office for instructions as to what he should do next, AND he admits to me  that there is a BELL  internet synchronization problem, and  a problem with a fiber optics conversion card at the local substation as well, plus that there are presently many other persons in my area with similar problems, but all that information still does me no good if I cannot have my internet working today..
The Bell technical promises to look at the problem elsewhere and to come back if the system still does not work. ne never came back. Bell tries next to say the problem still is solely  the Acanac modem..
– Do tell Bell that them price gouging their costumers by charging a 100 dollars fees for a supposedly unwarranted  service call can only be acceptable if it is balanced by a 100 dollar customer credit for the CUSTOMER  problems if it was warranted as well.. AND IN THAT CASE  BELL RIGHTFULLY OWES ME A THOUSAND DOLLARS ALREADY EVEN. REALITY ON MY STREET CABLE IS MORE RELIABLE OVER BELL.
– Now firstly Bell STILL measuring my Internet systems reliability at the initial maximum speed at Bell is an immoral, absurd, ludicrous approach.. so do more honestly measure rather the actual final speed, reliability at the customer’s destination, my home.. the actual minimum Bell speed provided… and it does next greatly varies and differs. Bells advertised speeds are thus falsely misleading to all consumers. But even speed does not compensate for the actual reliability of the internet service provided.
– Again I semi annually get the same internet phone line problems to my home… and always next  the same lying approach.. the same lies.. they first do also start to blame me, or my phone line, my modem, my filter, my computer, my operating system.. but they next had to look elsewhere.. in Bell itself again and again too. The problem was never my modems, my computers, my caches, my operating systems but solely Bell’s poor and even  lack of local line capacities that was not up to what they had promised,  lied to us all that it was, is. Bell says it is more reliable over Cable.. that presently is not so also  in my area for sure as well.
 Bell who clearly has a monopoly with Videotron in my area where I have no other choices to go to, had refused falsely to provide me presently my adequate internet support services through Acanac?  Was it cause they Bell have now even written to me twice in the last 2 months and had offered to provide the internet service directly through Bell itself and wanted to make Acanac look very inadequate in the customer’s eyes? they succeeded?
As per  this subject of the Lying Bell typical approach is that they next again had phoned me on the Nov 17 and lie and say everything is ok at their end for they firstly refuse to go to the field to check the problem.. they check at their end and the initial signal as ok.. but what happens next at the detonation, my final destination they falsely lie and say it is due  to the faulty  modem.. as usual. Note but while I was talking to the Bell technician on the phone  and Bell  they were testing Internets services   the 3rd light the DSL modem came on, indicating they had a control over it and the problem was not at my end..
The same Bell technician conceded that such problems were coming in fact and related to the weather,  humidity and explained why there was connectivity problems at certain seasons.. he said such problems are difficult to fix.. but who cares how difficult it is fix it Bell for that is your jobs . Bell here says that they want  to consider a separate line for the internet from the phone, but this still will not help if the connection problem  is located at their local  junction boxes outside of my home. 
Bell’s exterior line connections to my home which are already known and next confirmed to be faulty, and inadequate.
And when in the world did you ever hear Bell firstly even admit it was wrong, at fault  in anything, for these definite liars have never ever done so with me even  in my last ten years of semi annually almost complaining about my too many sudden internet problems.. and which always turned out to be the fault if Bell next too in the past.
When will Bell honestly  ever admit is own negative contributions to my ISP problems?
Now also when can I get proper permanent action on all of these matters still?
and what about me not getting caught in the middle of a Bell-Acanac wars,
and or me not being  caught in the middle as to who is responsible to insure myself that my internet services are being adequately provided rather ASAP as well
 I talked on 17 November directly, face to face  to the Cable Videotron local inspector about their present customer services and 5 years ago they had loads of problems, now they reduce the number of customers to 175 maximum on a branch, and they in contrast do have a 24 service hour turn around unlike Acanac  and they Videotron now  do have loads of ex Bell satisfied customers as well.. unfortunately they still do price gouge their customers with their capping as well.
Days later a Bell executive phoned me today Nov 19 to review  a phone survey on Bell’s effectiveness and he said he will issue a new ticket to deal with the all of these  issues. Now they say I will have the problem dealt with by the new year.. do you believe them? I do not.

 IF  YOU READ MY BLOGS YOU KNOW THAT I DO OFTEN RIGHTFULLY complain that in Canada it is bad cops, crooks and liars who seem to be the only one who can have a freedom of speech and they do not like it when you tell the truth about them to others, so they next do harass you, obstruct justice, repeatedly try to threaten you with a lawsuit, even recently. I have been threatened too many times with lawsuits of a long time, from Bell Canada, Royal LePage, others and I told them to go a head, they have more to lose then I have and I do welcome more publicity to all about my rightful complaints about their bad acts.

 So Every time I talk or write  to Bell they lie, clearly show what fools they are and they falsely ask for more information that they supposedly need to do their work.

 Bell does not like you to put anything in writing.. especially something that next shows to all as to how pretentious, stupid, incompetent they can tend to be.. so they ask you to phone them but  my own  many, repetitive experiences is that even the phone calls  to them are next buck passed, the Bell  persons you are talking to is also still pretentious, incompetent, has no authority to deal with your problem complaint., and often can’t speak English even.. So what is the purpose of Bell advertising this main service number for when you call them as I  did often they act very stupid,  then tell me I have to call someone else.. or do something else too. Talking with them is staill a waste of time..  and Bell still has a high volume of complaints  ehh and they cannot  handle them?? then who can?


Take this clear, open and shut undeiable example. Now because of health problems my father was forced to move into to a government run hospital facilties for seniors. He there had paid a flat 1700 dollar monthly fee for all the services but no phone in his room was provided.. So I called, sent an email to  Bell to install a phone and which they did. When my father’s health condition worsened months later and he subsequently died I as you can see below had immediately    emailed Bell to discontinue their Phone  service and many times I  was was given a run around instead.  They basically had said my dead father had to confirm the cancellation of his services, what they want a seance?  and they next had kept on charging my father who was buried, had moved out of the facilties for months, for the continual use of a phone.  How absurd on their part. Rather visbly incompetent fools.

>Unfortunately, the aforementioned details were not included in your correspondence and are required to assist you further.

Now we also do see  bellow that they Bell also cannot even read.. the Name and telephone number was included (514) 769-1381

Verizon Wireless pays FCC $25M for years of false data charges 

  The Federal Communications Commission said Thursday that it has reached a record $25 million settlement with Verizon Wireless over the company’s wrongly charging subscribers “mystery” Internet fees over the past several years.The payment will go to the U.S. Treasury and is the largest settlement in FCC history. The settlement also ends the FCC’s 10-month investigation into overcharges at Verizon Wireless, the agency said in a news release. An FCC spokeswoman declined to comment on whether the settlement also ends the agency’s other billing inquiries.

With the action, Verizon Wireless’s total costs associated with false data fees reached $77.8 million, one of the largest payouts for false business practices in the communications services industry. Verizon said this month that it would refund about 15 million subscribers $52.8 million for those unwanted data charges.

Verizon Wireless is the nation’s largest wireless service provider with 90 million subscribers. The firm announced its refund amid an FCC investigation into data charges brought from complaints from consumers.

This month, the FCC began an exploration into regulations that would require cellphone service providers to alert users when they are close to going over their monthly allotted voice, text and data limits. In a survey, the agency said 30 million cellphone users said they experienced “bill shock,” with extra charges on their monthly bills for data overcharges and other fees.

and what are they doing in Canada about any of  this.. the watchdog  is sleeping on the job again? or sleeping with Bell? Bad CRTC gives Bell a green lights on usage based internet billing .


  ” Metered internet usage is on the way, with the CRTC handing down its final decision on how wholesale customers can be billed by large network owners. The federal regulator on Thursday gave Bell Canada the approval to implement so-called usage-based billing to wholesale customers — usually smaller internet service providers that rent portions of its network — within 90 days. Under the plan, Bell will charge wholesale service providers a flat monthly fee to connect to its network, and for a set monthly usage limit per each ISP customer the ISP has. Beyond that set limit, users will be charged per gigabyte, depending on the speed of their connections. Customers using the fastest connections of five megabits per second, for example, will have a monthly allotment of 60 GB, beyond which Bell will charge $1.12 per GB to a maximum of $22.50. If a customer uses more than 300 GB a month, Bell will also be able to implement an additional charge of 75 cents per gigabyte. Customers of smaller ISPs such as Teksavvy and Execulink who signed up for service before Feb. 1, 2007, will be “grandfathered,” where their unlimited usage plans will be honoured. The CRTC did, however, give Bell the right to periodically raise rates on grandfathered plans in order to urge customers on to metered services. 

“we already have the most expensive cell phones on earth thanks to the big 3, and starting soon the most expensive internet.” “When was the last time the CRTC handed down a final decision that actually benefited customers? I say dissolve the CRTC. It’s little more than a slave to the big telecoms. “ “ Just like with cell phones, while the rest of the world moves forward, Canada runs backwards! You pay more to get less. Who in his right mind would be for this?  Bent over again by Bell’s lacky the CRTC. How does this do anything but hurt Canadian consumers? Another kick in the teeth from the CRTC…Internet caps in this country are ridiculously low and the rate at which the companies charge on a per gb basis is ludicrous! GB’s at most are less than 1cent in cost for the company to operate and somehow there’s this huge inflation in price. “  “  the profits don’t even go towards bettering the connection! Canada’s tech environment is suffering greatly with this approval. Dump the CRTC, please, for the sake of social advancement.”  ” In the U.S. internet usage by consumers is unlimited, meaning there is no restrictions on how much you can download. The CRTC is a joke and they need to be disbanded.They continue to suppress competition and ignore consumer needs.”  “CRTC just allowed Shaw to buy Canwest’s tv stations. Wasn’t it Bell that just bought CTV? Why is the CRTC allowing the telecoms to take over all of our media? We used to have laws restricting this kind of activity because it’s dangerous to us as a society.


CRTC ruling handcuffs competitive market: TeksavvyGlobe and Mail –  The CRTC has varied one of its decisions on an appeal, which means pretty soon Bell will be allowed to charge wholesale Internet service providers – ISPs, such as Primus and TekSavvy – on a usage-based billing model. Anybody using TV over Internet right now is going to be severely affected by this. I mean, it makes anybody trying to do streaming right now a pretty big concern. Do you keep surfing the Internet? Do you watch TV on the Internet? Just how much gaming do you do because some games now require some pretty big bandwidth?


CRTC eases Internet usage billing ruling CANOE

Canadian Network Operators Consortium Canada NewsWire (press release) (blog) –


Thursday’s CRTC decision granted Bell Canada the ability to charge its customers based on the amount of data they download. All data over the Internet is about to officially become a metered commodity in Canada. Know we all know this is how Bell plans to pay for the CTV network IT HAD RECENTLY  bought and WILL BELL ALSO START TO CHARGE FOR THE PAST FREE TV SERVICES TOO?
“However, unlike traditional commodities, where the market sets the price, there isn’t a clear idea of how much a GB of traffic is really worth. The ISP sets the price, and you have to pay it. “
“We are wimps in this country manipulated by a couple of huge corporations that help each other by following virtually the same insane prices for their communication products. As Rogers did with Bell on the torrent issue, they both work hand in hand to have Canadians paying the highest prices in the world.”” Strikes me as sort of double taxation.  “
”  The biggest problem with comparing bandwidth to other metered services like water or electricity is that bandwidth isn’t a scarce resource. It’s essentially unlimited and continues (and will continue) to become more plentiful, faster and cheaper. Consuming 1 GB today is many times cheaper & faster than it was 5 years ago, and it will be many times cheaper & faster in 5 years.  So with that in mind, why is the CRTC implementing such short-sighted usage caps? And more importantly, why are they protecting Bell?  Bell & Rogers are fighting like cats and dogs for a metered, regulated Internet not because of this apparent lack of capacity that they have (which is garbage), but because they are afraid that what we do with that capacity will cut into their other revenue streams. Every movie I watch on Netflix or rent through the iTunes store is revenue taken away from Bell. And as more people get used to the ease-of-use of Internet-based content delivery, Bell & Rogers’ content services come under more pressure. That’s why they are fighting so hard to keep our Internet use down, and it’s a shame that the CRTC bought their argument. “ “ We don’t pay Bell, Rogers, etc., for the amount of internet we use, we pay them for access to it? These companies only want usage based billing because it is a cash-cow! Do you want to pay a fee for ever kilometre you drive down a road? How about every step you take in a mall, someone’s has to pay to maintain those floors? It is a scam supported by the CRTC! And my reply is “SHAME ON THE CRTC! Your job is to protect the public’s rights, not only the telco’s!”
“ And when hydro says, “Conservation is about protecting the environment!” they are feeding us another line! No it’s not? It’s about guilt-tripping people into accepting every rate hike and expense recovery crap line they have been feeding us for years! Of course, our rate today is more than 4 times higher over 20 years ago, so what are they showing for it? Do we have really cool hydrogen fuel-cell power plants? Nope, instead they close down nuclear plants in favour of (much cheaper to operate) coal! And the majority of the public is guilt-tripped into buying this crap! Now, the link to the telco’s and internet is that this newer industry is learning from their fattened-cow older sibling on how to rape the public and make them feel like it is their fault! So ask yourself, “Do I really expect my house to have any less electronics 10 years from now? Do I really think I will be using less internet and hydro 10 years from now?” If they keep up with these billing practices, the answer will be “yes” because we can’t afford it otherwise…but my bill won’t go down as a result! I will be paying more than I am now and getting much less for it! “
“Bandwidth caps limit innovation, Bell doesn’t have to worry about that because they want to be the content provider and force their service, (ex. IPTV) which is on a non-capped line and doesn’t affect the capped line. What other services are they trying to implement?”
That’s a good one, you do realize that once the fiber lines are laid out it only costs them at most $2-3 per customer a month to maintain the connection right? The data is not and should not be treated as a commodity, they are tricking you all into thinking that bandwidth is some secret resource on our planet. It is not, it is flashes of light going through a line in the ground. That is all it is, you are paying hundreds a month for them to blink a light through an optical cable. If for instance bandwidth was driven by coal burning smoke signals then yes they would have a viable point. Quit being so ignorant, the CRTC by the way is made up of ex Bell/Rogers executives so no wonder they are never going to vote in public favour. “
“ I am very upset that the CRTC continues to support these big companies and ignores the general public. How is it possible that a company with a monopoly on DSL lines is allowed to charge these outrageous prices. Does anyone really believe a GB of data costs 2 dollars? I work in telecom and believe me, these prices are highly inflated. The major cost is from running the phone line to your house and maintaining the equipment, tech support, etc.. A GB means nothing to Bell. Has anyone actually been shown by Bell how this will help their network? Is there network overloaded today? Have they not invested enough in infrastructure?
Internet equipment is still dropping in price, and like computers in general, becoming more powerful every year. The cost of transferring a GB today is much less than a year ago, or 5 years ago.  So, why is Bell imposing this new billing now? Because of Netflix, and other competition to their TV/ pay per view. Its the content they want to control. They don’t want the competition. And if people are naive and say, well, this doesn’t affect me… you are mistaken. Less content providers means less competition. Less cheap internet means less working from home, remote access and other things that are and will become increasingly more used. So sad that this happens in Canada.”
“Furthermore, this ruling is anti-competitive. Bell not only runs networks. They also run the telephone and television networks. The internet is clearly a major threat to both of these two money makers.”
Obviously the CRTC didn’t see that report that pegged Canada as having some of the slowest, most expensive internet in the world. This just makes us that much more screwed. Why does Korea have unlimited internet 5-10x faster than our fastest residential internet, for only $29/month?”
” There needs to be a check and balance to this. Usage based billing is fine, but it has to go both ways. If they’re charging $50 a month for 60gb and I only use 30gb, then I want to pay $25. If they want to run their business like the power or water utilities then do it. People who use power are charged accordingly and you have the ability to cut back on what you use at your own discretion. People can do the same thing with internet.
The reality is that this would never happen because Bell’s business model preys on people over paying for service and knowing their users won’t use what they buy to the max. If every user in Canada bought internet and used 60gb each month Bell would be bankrupt in a month. Their whole business model is built on under delivering their product.”
“This is what you get when you elect a Conservative government.They want to raise the price of every service in exchange for larger campaign donations from the corporations (shaw, bell, rogers, telus).”
“We pay more for internet and cell phone use here than most places in the world by far! What a Joke! They just want to hijack us for more $$$ before more competition finally is allowed.”
“This is daylight robbery and we allow it to happen.GREAT!!”
“UBB or usage based billing, as has been implemented by Bell and has received approval from the CRTC to apply it to their wholesalers, is a step backwards. Our technological advancement has been stunted for so long with companies like Bell and Rogers trying to keep things at status quo instead of trying to be the best in the world. I don’t know where these companies learned their marketing and customer relations values.
While all of the major ISP’s currently do have data caps, their wholesalers (ie. Teksavvy, Acanac, etc) were able to provide much higher caps from 200 GB to unlimited. The CRTC’s ruling in favor of UBB will nullify the unlimited plans for many users on DSL (aka Bell). However, despite Rogers having data caps, they have recognized that they can allow their wholesalers to provide unlimited downloads in order to steal market share away from DSL. So while Bell is busy trying to nickel and dime everyone, Rogers has made deals with Teksavvy to provide plans that are not usage based. Acanac will be coming out with their own cable internet plans on November 1st, so I don’t know what they will have. But both Teksavvy and Acanac have always had good service with very reasonable prices. Ditch the big companies and go with Teksavvy or Acanac. Then you won’t need to worry when you watch a ton of movies from netflix or your kid spent hours watching new movie trailers or youtube videos or gaming… there are endless uses that will eat up your bandwith. Get unlimited.”
Computer users have become a cash cow for many The average, Illiterate computer users are taking a great risk …

After going through what seems to have been several years without getting hit with a serious virus, this weekend I got nailed with a killer. It was one of those extremely annoying trojan viruses that digs it’s way into your system and causing some serious damage along the way. The fun worst part about this virus was how it would instantly activate itself upon windows starting up, then to make matters worse, it would instantly close out any applications you tried to open and wiped out internet access all together.  The main goal of the virus was to not only infect your computer, but also to make money in the process. On the flip side, there are tons of web sites cashing in on anti virus software without being bastards and having to infect computers with a virus to make their living. Web sites dedicated to providing information on how to remove these viruses are also cashing in. 
ORGANISED crime online has become rife over the last few years with more and more computer and Internet users falling victim to phishing and different forms of viruses and spyware.   we are now entering a new era where viruses are being deliberately developed and spread for potential profit – huge profit. Antivirus software is becoming big business, not only because new viruses are constantly being created or ‘improved’ that can bypass existing antivirus software, but also because people are living in fear of getting a nasty infection and losing all their valuable data. Many people are also even  scammed into purchasing antivirus or anti-spyware software by being made to believe that their pc is infected. There are many ways that any computer connected to the Internet can become infected or accessed by viruses and spyware.

Big bad Mother Bell is still so greedy

Bell she wants all the money for herself. But you already know as to how bad Bell is if you did  read my blog here.

Big win for small Internet providers Vancouver Sun  The country’s major Internet providers, such as BCE Inc.’s Bell Canada and Telus Corp., will be forced to lease network space to smaller competitors at matching speeds to ensure competition for broadband services, the telecommunications regulator said in a key ruling Monday. The decision, delivered after hearings last spring, is a critical if only partial victory for independent resellers like TekSavvy Solutions Inc. and Telnet Communications, which will now be able to keep pace with incumbent offerings. Yet for Telus and Bell, it is a big blow in their fight to gain television share and slow phone line losses against rival cable companies Shaw Communications Inc. and Rogers Communications Inc. Limited bandwidth capacity the pair would rather use for new Internet TV products must now instead go toward wholesale services under regulated prices and fixed returns. In the decision, Konrad von Fickenstein, chairman of the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission, acknowledged that big providers are investing in network infrastructure, but regulated access was still required to foster “more competition and (to better serve consumers).” Third-party resellers’ business model depends on set prices for wholesale network access, which is then resold to customers.

Bell is still undeniable guilty of bait and switch, false misleading trade, advertising practices.

Choose Bell and get more value from your TV service. Digital television you can count on. The best HD. Stunning picture quality . Over 100 HD channels, the best receivers. A free Free HD PVR & digital receiver for three years. How well our services perform is as important to us as it is to you is a blatant lie. Faster interent download speeds and the fastest uploads .The largest fibre optic network in Canada is not available in all parts of Canada firstly. Supposedly Reliable access with proactive speed monitoring and optimization and of course the capping of your downloads is included, so are the too often disconnects. When you choose Bell Internet, you get free wireless home networking, security features, and a complete and customized installation, all on the most advanced fibre optic network in Canada but certainly not in the world. It gives you faster download speeds up to 25 Mbps and the fastest upload speed in the market – up to 7 Mbps. Note the term up to, does not mean a minimum speed still but only a potential maximum speed at Bell’s origin and certainly not at your place. The serious degradation of the speed at your place is a fact now too.
  Bell was and is a king in misleading others. When Bell advertise something is free, it is not free forever, or when Bell advertise a very low price, it is generally always too good to be true, for what Bell gives with one hand it soon takes away with the other hand.. Bell’s fixed contracts are a one way deal, fixed for Bell’s purposes only. Readily and often changed to suit Bell’s purposes mostly and changed without the customer’s prior approval now too. It is what Bell does not tell you that also now counts and can be really negative upon you and your Bell services.. Their support services are undeniably too often really bad when you need them. But we all seem to know next the hard way that you cannot believe what you hear and read these days especially in advertising, or even in the news or from Ottawa too.


I guess the Canadian federal and provincial governments do still feel, do even demonstrate by doing nothing good about it  that the Canadian citizens are here to be taken advantage off, to be abused daily even by their allowing the false misleading, corrupt business practices like that of the Canadian Bell. Mind you we do often also know already that when others lie like Bell does Bell itself does not hesitate to complain about it.
ONCE A BAD GUY, ALWAYS A BAD GUY IT SEEMS.. OTTAWA – The federal cabinet has been asked to referee an increasingly nasty, litigious dispute between Telus Corp. (TSX:T) and Bell Canada (TSX:BCE) over a $213-million Defence Department telecom contract. At one point in late 2008, Telus accused its competitor of deliberately sabotaging the changeover, an accusation Bell denied.



” Technology Bell Canada takes heat from clients for limiting online speedFile-sharing customers fire up complaints as giant extends limit to resellers Roberto Rocha , The Gazette Published: Wednesday, April 02, 2008 “Hands off my Internet” is the message Bell Canada is hearing from Canadians this week and last. Alarmed by the company’s decision to limit Internet speeds when using file-sharing programs, customers are treating Bell to a public relations storm, and asking the government to intervene if necessary. The issue is what is known as “traffic shaping” or “throttling,” the slowing down of Internet speeds for certain types of data. Bell Sympatico said last November that it slows the service of people who share files on peer-to-peer networks like BitTorrent and LimeWire. But the final straw for Internet activists came last week, when Bell said it will do the same for Internet providers that resell Bell’s service under another brand. “It’s certain that it disturbs us a lot. We’re talking millions of people that will be affected (in Canada),” said Jean-Philippe   que, president of ElectronicBox, a Bell Internet reseller in Montreal. “We don’t know what technology Bell is using to throttle. We’re wondering if our other services, like Internet telephony, will be affected,” he said. Now   other third-party resellers have hundreds of Canadians rushing to their defence, gathering on Facebook groups decrying Bell and writing letters to the CRTC, to the Competition Bureau and to Industry minister Jim Prentice. One of these is Steve Anderson, a masters student at Simon Fraser University and co-ordinator of Campaign for Democratic Media, an association of lobby groups. “Our main goal is to raise awareness. When people know that Internet providers are trying to shape what applications they can use, they’re naturally appalled and take action on their own accord,” Anderson said. His Stop the Throttler Facebook group, marked by a malicious-looking beaver chewing through a phone cable, had 535 members as of yesterday. Another group, Stop Bell From Throttling DSL Resellers, has more than 1,000 members sharing news items and tales of contempt for Bell. “Throttling without telling customers is just bad PR,”In the U.S., peer-to-peer throttling is a major issue that is receiving Congressional attention. A bill was introduced in February in the House of Representatives to order the U.S. Federal Communications Commission to investigate the practice. In Canada, the topic of so-called Net neutrality has not reached household status. However, observers like Ottawa law professor Michael Geist, believe Bell’s actions will intensify the debate The CRTC, which is also a target of letter writers, said this week it had not received any complaints. Regardless of the intention, third-party resellers like Béïque fear this tactic will backfire for Bell and its partners. “There will be people who will migrate to other technologies, like cable,” he said. ”…

The big bad CRTC Approves New Bell Internet Billing Rates Increase

The big bad  CRTC Approves New Bell Internet Billing Rates Increase, Plans.
The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) has approved a plan to bill Internet customers by the gigabyte. Bell Canada and Bell Aliant can now charge both retail and wholesale customers based on how much they download each month. The plan, known as usage-based billing, will apply to people who buy their internet connection from Bell, or from smaller service providers that rent lines from the company, such as Teksavvy or Acanac. The CRTC also approved an additional speed option. The CRTC is letting the service providers introduce the pricing plan to its customers, called usage-based billing, whether a customer gets Internet access from Bell or from smaller companies that get their access through Bell’s lines. Some Internet Service Providers that get wholesale services from Bell had opposed the plan, initially presented last fall, saying they could not differentiate their product offerings from Bell’s under such a scheme. The CRTC noted that it also received a number of individual comments, mostly opposed to the proposal. Usage-based billing is seen by providers like Bell as one way to control or manage demand on their networks, often caused by heavy downloading or so-called P2P traffic. For more information, visit 
Why  are the prices always going up for Bell and the customers instead of down overtime? The CRTC clearly is either incompetent or corrupt. We’d like to be billed in accordance with the contract that we had signed with Bell. Didn’t realize that Bell  could just change the terms of a contract any old time Bell  wanted. It does not take a genius to know that the CRTC have given Bell a license to steal more money from the consumers, customers and Bell providing very little in return back to the customer, Bell still provides lying,  lousy customer services, including the slow down of email and their capping of the downloads too.. Computers, networking hardware, all the tech stuff needed to get the Internet to your door gets cheaper every day…. Hard drives used to be thousands of dollars for 5 megabytes…. now they are pennies on the gigabyte(1000 megabytes)…. Yet Rogers and Bell seem to keep on raising the prices…. they are greedy for a start.

Just cause you got a Smartphone

MANUFACTURERS TO launch A NEW PHONE   by Christmas?  or their new tablet and likley touch screen against the ipad.. don’t you hate it when you just spend loads of money for a new gadget it is already ready to become shortly obsolete again too.

“Buying a phone is becoming harder and harder these days. There are so many different options on smartphones that it is hard to keep up with all the latest technology. With phones and tablets almost completely relying on touchscreen interfaces, the screens on these devices are easily the most important part of modern day devices. There are several different technologies behind these screens, and we aim to explain what some of these terms mean. If you’ve ever wondered what AMOLED, LCD, IPS, or TFT mean, you’re reading the right article.
These days you really only have two choices of screens when you are buying a smartphone or tablet, LCD or AMOLED. Many of you probably can’t tell the difference between the two screen types, but both technologies have inherent strengths and weaknesses. LCD has been around for a while, but AMOLED phones are gaining popularity thanks to Samsung and other manufacturers. There isn’t a clear winner at this point in time
The smartphones demand  has clearly surged, but they use as much as 30 times as much bandwidth as regular mobile phones to run the applications, or “apps,” that make them so popular. This  surge in traffic triggered by video and other apps has led to more dropped calls and choppy service. As video on smartphones becomes more popular, it is leading to more congestion, and forcing the reluctant carriers to spend billions to upgrade their antiquated networks and also to  buy more wireless spectrum. Kind explains why Bell also had to dishonestly cap the regular downloads capabilities on it’s networks to make way for the smart phones. And why Apple’s phones, ipods  are reluctant to  to use video, cameras ..  Just cause you got a Smartphone does not mean it is going to work properly. 
Now if a user is asked to choose between an tablet and a netbook, the tablet isn’t an adequate substitute and as smartphones become more powerful, and move closer to PCs, the need for a tablet is greatly reduced.
The iPad Cons
-There isn’t a camera , there’s no  Skype, with all of that power there is no camera on this device.
-No on board memory card support. You must purchase an optional adapter.
-The iPad will have many books to download and also other cool apps, but what if I want to listen to some music on Pandora, while I read, or work on my iPad I can’t. With all the crazy things I mentioned before about all the powerful things  it is quipped with, those powerful components  run hand and hand with the current iPhone OS (Version 3.2). Therefore even on the iPad you can do no multi-tasking at all. I believe it’s a big setback for the device.
-The battery’s life is great as we spoke about, but if the battery dies completely there’s no way of getting at it to replace, its built in.
iPad does not come with Flash.
Adobe CEO states Flash is coming to Android, Blackberry and WebOS. So video  it is already presenting a big challenge to networks.  “If you think that today’s 3G as a browsing experience is a challenge to these data networks, imagine what a video streaming or download experience is going to be as these screens start to look like HD televisions in terms of resolutions.” There is some amazing technologies for compressing everything from web content, documents, and video but all that in reality is still a long way off.
By the way for all those Hollywood companies complaining that their films are being stolen, pirated by others, on the internet before I would even bother to listen to their complaints, I would like to have them all fully reviewed for their too often known, numerous  tax evasions firstly.

Bell is a large organization that lacks willingness to connect with its customes but doe snot hesitate  to abuse them

THE RELEASE of the Apple  Iphone 3GS has sparked a wave  on the world wide web lately.  As SFGate hack Mark Morford points out, people have suddenly stopped moaning about the fact that the phone lacks a microSD card reader, enterprise capabilities, support for multiple codecs, background processing and a real time GPS, and that it’s slow syncing and has pathetic video upload, a pants camera and a silly single-core processor. Instead TOO MANY FALSE spin stories about the Iphone 3GS “being perfect” have started to become currency. No product however good it is has ever been perfect. The fact that people can say such nonsense is part of the reason I think that the Apple media control machine is worse than any atrocity that Microsoft or Intel ever dreamed up.  The Apple dream is one where ‘perfection’ is defined for you. You buy a slice of that perfection every time you buy a product. It will be perfect until the upgrade comes out and you will have to keep buying or you will not be perfect. This bizarre relationship only exists with Apple and its fans. Microsoft users expect the Vole’s products to go wrong, it is like a running joke. Linux is based on the idea that if something goes wrong the user might be able to fix it. And lots of people have been reporting that their smartphones seem to get too warm if you run GPS stuff on   them.  Moaning that Google will not provide Apple users with its products while at the same time claiming the Apple version is perfect and original really shows up the psychological flaws in most fanboys’ argument. If Safari is so good and perfect why would you want Chrome?  Reality Apple is never perfect..  Apple is a minority operating system. It is bigger in the US, which is a country famous for having more money than sense, and even there only five percent of people use it.   Apple fanboys need to wake up to the fact that they are solidly in the minority and any action from a major IT company to provide them with software and services for their bizarrely obscure proprietary operating system is done out of indulgent charity rather than from any compelling business case.

Bell Canada recently is so ready to sue others, first needs to sue itself.


  The  CRTC is not looking out for MY interests, as a tax paying citizen, but is an advocacy group for the monopolistic telecommunications giants…  The CRTC’s vice-chairman, Leonard Katz, spent seventeen years working for Rogers and eleven for Bell. Canada’s Telecom Telecommunications Policy Review Panel, tasked with determining regulatory framework, was led by the ex-owner of Inukshuk (sold to Bell/Rogers), an exec that played a huge role in the Bell & Microsoft alliance and a lawyer whose firm represents incumbent operators.  Canadian ISPs (Almost) Come Clean On Throttling
 I have many Blogs and as a result I am regularly on the internet, and often on the same internet sites, at all times too and and seven days a week, such as  and , etc., so I can really , directly, experientially notice when there is a internet web Brower connectivity access problem, variation.
I am really having a hard time how Bell who had advertised itself as the most reliable internet service provider and also the fastest now could thus be having problems in delivering their internet web Brower connectivity services to me when I do not live in the sticks, in some remote village but I live in the second largest city in Canada, Montreal.
Why the access discrepancies when yet  I  had trouble even accessing the Olympic hockey now..
Secondly Bell Canada advertises that it’s internet services are not shared as opposed to cable, so how can I thus have internet web Brower connectivity problems during weekends, when I assume more citizens, are trying to access their web browsers and the internet..
And finally what does my distance from Toronto have anything to do with the  internet web Brower connectivity accessibility as well? The only conclusion I can draw to presently is that Bell Canada is deliberately harassing Acanac customers, users thus. Is this so and what is being done about it too?
For instance I had noticed Network problems knocked more than 10 million Word Press blogs offline in a two hour outage on 18 February. But this was only a short, two hour break and not a regular occurrence like I am having with many other of regular sites access… said the problem was caused by a core router change at one of its data centre providers which “broke the site”  and security was not an issue and that the site had not been hacked or hit by a denial of service attack, yet even here there are now access delays

No one in the GOVERNMENTS, NEWS MEDIA,., CONSUMER PROTECTION AGENCIES has yet even satisfactory addressed my basic complaints, concerns, issues here. Why is that? Public exposure and prosecution of the unrepentant guilty persons, corporations still always also serves everyone’s best interest

Note this Dec 2010 I am still having the same problme ii had complained about months ago yoo to Bell- Acanac.

Canadian internet slow, expensive: Harvard – Canada ranks 19th out of 30 countries in broadband internet after measures such as speed and price are taken into account. (Jim Hannon/Associated Press) A new report from Harvard University says that contrary to what the CRTC had said. A new report from Harvard University says that contrary to what the CRTC states, Canada has some of the slowest and most expensive internet access in the developed world. Canada placed in the middle of the pack in terms of speeds offered but fared poorly in pricing, ranking 18th out of 30 for current-generation internet and 18th out of 19 for next-generation speeds, which are 35 megabits or faster. An editorial in the Globe and Mail on Monday said the federal government needs to take immediate action to stop Canada’s sliding position in broadband. Affordable, higher-speed internet access is necessary for Canadians to remain competitive with the rest of the world, the newspaper said.  “If we do not act with haste, the innovations that could employ our future work force could well pass us by.”  “Greed set in, plain and simple” ” So true. We have an internet service that runs on BS.” “I think we are all aware that we are being ripped off internet providers, but we are also being ripped off by phone and cable and satelite providers.  Wait a minute…. the same companies provide all these services. What a rip off. Time for a formal inquiry.” ” disband the crtc” ” What a joke the CRTC is. ”  “The CRTC is just a front for big business. Fire them. ”

Report: Canadian Internet lagging behind

Canada Mirrors US Broadband Policy, Gets Same Crap Results Dslreports We’ve watched Canada’s biggest carriers grow more powerful, while independent Canadian ISPs slowly have been fighting for their life. Canadian regulators like the CRTC, stocked with former Bell and Rogers executives, have repeatedly ignored anticompetitive attacks on small carriers. Regulators have tried to prevent wireless competitors from entering the market because they weren’t Canadian enough (aka protectionism). Cable’s biggest carriers are happily now imposing ridiculously low caps and high per gigabyte overages, while Canada’s falling down the rankings in terms of price per MB, speed, and broadband penetration.

Bell’s lies vs reality again




 I can’t believe it decades later some sick control fool still tries to give me orders, tries to enslave me, walk over me, and why do they think they can even do it… My logo name alone should have warned them –  thenonconformer. The best way to deal with any of these false slave drivers is to shout rape loudly to all persons, and let everyone know what is being done. the News media is not the only one that can shout sins across the housetops, so can we  all with the internet now too. The past once nobodies like Apostle Paul, Marlin Luther, Martin Luther King all had learned the pen is mightier than the sword.. once the truth is exposed, the proper informed persons tend to deal with the matter, and with those involved next anyway.. but too bad the bad guys did not repent when they had a chance, for next it is often really too late to avoid their coming  real negative  consequences..  Now I have been OFTEN writing to news editors for the last 30 years.. MAILED OUT EMAIL TO THOUSANDS EVERY MONTH TOO,   in all that time less than a dozen important people asked me not to write to them any  more, and less than a handful news editors now too.. many of these politicians who  how had written to me had lost reelection next.. and do note that all of the news editors that wrote to me and said do not write to me anymore their firms are financially broke today, and even some gone out of business.. like the Montreal CFCF. You see they broke the first law of successful management.. you do not despise, mistreat, abuse others and hope to get their vote, support,  but  now they also broke the other rules next.. and you do not abuse others for you do not know who their  friends are now  are too.. These bad CONTROL FREAKS WHO TRY TO ENSLAVE, DOMINATE OTHERS ARE SICK PEOPLE NEEDING still PROFESSIONAL HELP IN REALITY.. We also do all know that most persons  still  tend to take an ostrich denial approach to their own faults, shortcomings still and thus hasten their own downfall as a result too.. When a business’s profitability is severely reducing, dropping, the top  management often fails to admit the truth, the real reasons as to why,  and they also tend to falsely among many other things
– lie some more
– raise their prices to try to try to increase their profitability, making themselves more uncompetitive
– cut back on customer services, clearly making matters even worse
– resort to costly, false, misleading advertisements again
– blame their employees , and have a high employee turnover, making matters worse
– blame other facts for their own management failures,
– really do not provide a positive, competitive  service
– generally fail to replace all of the bad top executive, middle managers with good personnel
 Many can see clearly that Rogers, Bell, Videotron, Shaw, Telus all only care about one thing.. maximum profits.. motivated by maximum greed..  mostly finding an excuse to charge the customer even for more.. and yes that they have done with their lies, distortions … and no one cares about integrity or  the citizens, consumer, the CRTC or the governments now included. 
Public exposure and prosecution of the guilty persons seems to be most effective way that works for everyone’s benefit in dealing with the bad acts of others still.

Bell launched their HSPA network on Tuesday and 3 days after we’ve been informed that an new issue has popped up. It’s regarding select Canadian customers on their HSPA network who are getting billed for roaming while in Canada. Apparently, as experienced with EVDO devices, the HSPA devices may be picked up by a U.S. cell tower and those customers are being billed US roaming rates.

The spin doctors, liars were at it again, also telling you that iphones sales were recession proof and that many, many people in Canada were buying the cell phones now,  but the real reality was, is that Canadian Mobile Phone Market had stalled in Q3, thoid quarter of the year.  The projected  Canadian mobile phone market growth now  did not occur again. The market rather receded 8% in the third quarter of 2009 (3Q09), which also had marked the third straight sequential decline, according to preliminary results from IDC Canada’s Mobile Phone Tracker. Handset makers had also shipped 4% fewer units to wireless service providers and other channel partners in the third quarter when compared to the same quarter last year. Some analysts  now  attribute  the weaker-than-projected  performance to the actual tepid Canadian economy, which is still in a recession, and the shrinking traditional phone segment, plus whatever. It’s all also a step backwards when compared to the market performance in the second quarter of this year – the third quarter shipments had declined 1.7% compared to 2Q09.. reality contradicts the liars again.

Now here is something most active computer internet users do also know and have also complained about.. Did you also now  notice that none of the Canadian news media will confront Bell or the CRTC about any of this, Bell’s immoral acts and now why is that? Do tell us all. They want to get Bell’s advertisements? or they too have something to hide? which one is it?  Well when you do rightfully tell the real truth like I  do, next there is nothing to try to hide, to deny, to cover up, and  it makes life much more easier too. I do not have to threaten anyone or threathen falsey to sue them now too.

False misleading advertising has long time been made by Telus, Rogers, Bell and others in Canada whole the Ostrich federal consumer dperantmt, government did nothing.. I even wrote to you about THIS ISSUE  too and what it takes the courts to deal with everything now, AND so why do we need the  government 

CBC did not mind writing about New conflict unearthed at Ontario Health … but what about the other bad guys like Bell now too? If you have a tip, please send us an email at yournews@cbc. 
 Firstly real Life mainly is not about the Government, the news media, anyone else to be here to help  the selected few, big business mostly to make more money and to get richer in fact. Life it is about all of us helping to meet the basic, essential needs of all Canadians, note all, young and old, male and female, white collared or blue collared, professionals, unprofessional, natives or non natives too.
It is an established, undeniable fact that at least 40 percent off Bell’s present, past customers have  been dissatisfied with the actual customer support they have received in Canada relating to cell phones, internet services, billings, etc. That is why many of them have gone elsewhere even to Videotron, Acanac, etc.

The bigger they think they are the harder they do fall next too.. It is really not what you think you are that counts, but rather how the other people mostly do see you now.. they are sadly what laughing at you too? People always do watch how you do treat others, cause they know they likely will be treated the same way next too. Do you treat everyone else the  way you treat me too?

I learned long time ago that merely telling the truth to some people will not work, they have their false idols, false lies they still want to handle, and they will take the Ostrich approach to the truth, but hopefully the truth will next still help some people.”

Please do first reply to me, please do answer the question or quit the CBC first.. it is as simple as that.. you like to write about corrupt eHealth officials but not about corrupt Bell employees? I do not work for you, I do not take your orders.. you work for me, all the Canadian citizens.. I send out hundreds of these to elected representatives, others  and only one, you did not like it… why was that?

Remind your Boss also in full I have a right of free speech in Canada, whether you likese  it or admits it or not.. and don’t bother sending the police to my home about my letters, cause they have come and gone many times, sent by other crooked political masters too,  and yes many of whom next lost their re-election next too, and I am still writing the last 3 decades even  to all..

Now I would rather you deal with the issues I write about and rightfully now too

Copy to the net too..

Bell does not discriminate, show partiality, it seems ready to abuse anyone.. ROGERS AS WELL NOW FOR THAT MATTER
Telus sues Rogers over advertised claims    Telus Communications Co. is suing Rogers Communications Inc., claiming Rogers no longer has the right to call itself “Canada’s most reliable” or “Canada’s fastest” network.  So if Rogers wants to continue with this claim, they should cover all of Canada and all their customers. Not just the ones that happen to live in a major city centre. Nationwide coverage??? Not even close.    I currently have Telus “high speed” Internet service. On numerous occasions, this Telus service has been slower than my old 56K dial-up service. That is why I am canceling my Telus service as of next week and going with the competition (just to see if they are any better).   Telus is in no position to be taking legal action based on Rogers engaging in misleading advertising. Telus does it too, with its advertised claims of high speed internet access. If Telus is advertising high-speed Internet service, it should be high speed 24/7, and not just when the network is not busy.   And this is not just my computer or modem being slow, as I have had numerous others tell me that their Telus “high speed” Internet service is very slow at times.   A perfect example of the pot calling the kettle black   Just another couple of corporate crybabies looking to gouge the customer.
Telus Communications Inc. (T-T33.500.200.60%) launches legal action against Rogers Communications Inc. (RCI.B-T33.00-0.14-0.42%) for allegedly misleading ads claiming Rogers provides “Canada’s fastest network.”  In documents filed in B.C. supreme court, Telus says that since a Nov. 5 upgrade, a network run by Bell (BCE-T27.640.431.58%) and Telus offers faster and more reliable service than the Rogers network.  Telus says Rogers advertisements introduced in 2007 and continuing after Nov. 5 that claim Rogers provides “Canada’s fastest network: two times faster than any other,” are now false and misleading.  Telus also claims similar advertisements that Rogers provides “Canada’s most reliable network,” have also been false since Telus’ upgrade.  Telus is seeking a declaration from Rogers that its advertisements breached Canada’s Competition Act, in addition to injunction from distributing the ads, damages and compensation. Canada’s wireless telecommunications industry, in which Telus, Bell and Rogers control about 90 per cent of the market, is set to become more competitive as Telus and Bell introduce Apple’s coveted iPhone, which Rogers has offered for more than a year.


Telecom New Zealand’s Australian arm, AAPT hails as Australia’s first ISP to launch an ADSL 2+ plan with limitless downloads, no capping and no throttling. It has initiated with the offering of unlimited ADSL2+ broadband service to customers who are interested to sign-up for two years for around a $99.95 per month. However, a dozen ISPs offer unlimited downloads as part of their broadband Internet plans, but most of them facilitate reduced speeds while others charge fees for extra downloads. AAPT Chief Executive Paul Broad quoted, “As consumers, we all have a moral responsibility to ensure recording artists receive the royalties they rightly deserve and by offering our Entertainment Bundle we’re encouraging Australians to do the right thing”. In addition, AAPT has also undergone a deal with music label EMI to facilitate an online music service with the offer which will include $50 worth of song downloads and unlimited streamed content.
Quebec-based internet service provider Cogeco Inc. has stopped advertising its services as the fastest in in two Quebec cities after the Competition Bureau ruled the ads were misleading. The federal agency said the misleading claims about Cogeco’s services services in Drummondville and St-Hyacinthe had been clarified, but didn’t didn’t provide details on when the ads ran or say if its probe was spurred by a consumer complaint. The bureau said consumers had no way to compare the speed of Cogeco’s services with those of all of its competitors in the two cities, and it was therefore impossible for Cogeco to claim that they offered “the fastest” service. Cogeco’s CEO Louis Audet defended the ad campaign, saying the firm at the time had used an internet site that rates broadband speeds globally.  Cogeco is now using another method to compare speeds with them. Audet said he considers the Competition Bureau’s investigation to be minor. “I think what we were doing was rather benign. We advertised ourselves as the ‘fastest’ which is really the platform that we use across all of our territories where we compete with Bell and Telus,” he said


Claims about speed and reliability are becoming issues of dispute among Canada’s major wireless companies, too. They are fighting legal battles over those issues as they position themselves for more competition as more players enter the cellphone market. On Wednesday, a B.C. court ruled that Bell Mobility could not claim it was Canada’s “most reliable network” after Rogers challenged Bell’s ads as misleading.  Last month, a B.C. court brought an injunction to force Rogers Communications to stop claiming it was Canada’s most reliable network. That was the result of a complaint by Telus.

As the CBC’s Lynn Burgess knows first hand I seriously challenged Bell’s claim of being the most reliable network, as I have often posted on my sites this fact as to how unreliable they rather were . I have often rightfully said it is a very common unacceptable Canadian practice to lie in business and we keep on getting new news media evidence of this now as well..

Bit Torrent – P2P sites -network traffic -Network Neutrality

“Canadian officials are taking part in negotiations for a top-secret copyright treaty that could see families barred from the Internet for a year if someone in the household is suspected of illegal downloads.Under the worldwide rules of the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA), Internet service providers such as Bell and Rogers in Canada would be required to become copyright police and filter out pirated material from their networks, hand over the identities of customers believed to be infringing copyrights and restrict the use of identity-blocking software.ACTA would employ a three-strikes policy. People believed to be regularly downloading copy-protected material, such as movie and music files, could have their Internet connection severed for up to 12 months and forced to pay a fine. “It’s incredibly disproportionate. Three unproven allegations of infringement will cut off Internet service for a year for an entire family,” said Michael Geist, who holds the Canada Research Chair in Internet and e-commerce Law at the University of Ottawa.”It’s not based on the individual user, it’s based on the connection,” added Geist, who said he has received details of the proposals from people closely associated with drafting the agreement. The treaty, which is being pushed forward by the Office of the United States Trade Representative, closely mimics the controversial Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) that governs copyright issues in the U.S. It puts in place measures that would make it illegal for consumers to make backup copies of DVDs or other media with built-in copy-protection technology. Other provisions could make information on iPods, laptops and other personal electronic devices illegal and force travellers to prove to border officials that the content on such devices was acquired through legal channels.
“All of the computer internet P2P growth we’ve seen over the past several months is in the torrent community,” Free Bit Torrent usage still  soars as Bell, Videotron and others have  put caps  against P2P USERS, sites.  Both the music, movie industries  and many of the big Internet Service Providers now all do see P2P file-sharing of movies, films, TV shows,  pictures, wallpapers, music, books, magazines,  games, software, other, etc., as a very real threat to their maximum profitability. Greed and profitability clearly has overtaken them.. Bit Torrent TV Documentaries, History, TV shows themselves are increasingly becoming popular world wide , and are being bundled into multi-episode packs. “Many People are migrating towards three packs, six packs, and even whole seasons,” Bell and Videotron themselves now are in a false conflict of customer interest cause they rent movies, games too.
All of the  governments should now step in given the justified rising anti-competitive, anti monopoly sentiment nation wide, curbing their monopoly sectors from grabbing, gouging  exorbitant profits from the customers,  and preventing these monopoly sectors from taking advantage of their market position to overcharge consumers.  Encouraging real, valid competition, for example, is the ultimate way of breaking up monopolies. But the government some times instead  sticks to price controls or no controls to tackle the monopoly problem. The governments can deal  with monopolized interests only if it gathers adequate political will.  
Broadband campaign spurs 20,000 letters to MPs. A public relations and lobbying campaign launched by small internet providers for government intervention in the broadband market has spurred more than 20,000 letters to MPs, the companies say. The Coalition for Competitive Broadband, a group led by Winnipeg-based MTS Allstream and made up of more than 50 small internet providers and the Canadian Federation of Independent Businesses, launched a website two weeks ago to muster support against several recent regulatory decisions. I think its time it [the Internet] became a public utility like power and water.” A campaign for government intervention in the telecom market as well… I think most of us is sick of “paying among the highest cellphone bills in the developed world”.  CRTC is not protecting regular Canadian’s interest. Competitive Broadband website
The United States is moving toward enshrining a free and open internet with six proposed rules designed to prevent telecommunications companies from interfering with how people use their connections. The rules are needed because American internet providers have interfered with internet traffic on a number of occasions and they must be prevented from doing so in the future, said Federal Communications Commission chairman Julius Genachowski.   Long overdue in Canada. The Hydro company does not check what brand of appliance I plug in to determine my power consumption.  Telecoms should not be “packet sniffing” to determine my connection speed. Canada needs some net-neutrality guarantees as well to prevent the telecom oligopoly from their dirty tricks. The CRTC needs to start working for us instead of the big companies. They should also put in some guidelines on acceptable marketing strategies for ISP’s. The “up to 10 Mbps” is really misleading when all you ever see is 500 Kbps. It should be based on the average expected speed and we should be getting a credit if we do not get those speeds. It takes American law to show our government what Canadian people have been asking for years.
The peer-to-peer (P2P) traffic is a dominant type of Internet traffic today, consuming up to 30% of all Internet backbone traffic. P2P applications consume a lion share of ISP network capacity, consuming the ISP  bandwidth . The Pirate Bay bragged that after a Danish ISP was forced to block its subscribers from accessing the Swedish site, traffic spiked. TPB attributes the increase from the publicity surrounding the ISP’s action. Those new to P2P seem to be jumping on the BitTorrent bandwagon.  “All of the growth is in the torrent community, which maybe suggests that the audience for traditional P2P is mature.”
Consumers are readily able to access freely any of the many  torrent sites day and night, and totally freely  download at will now too, no  initial or ongoing costs too, even sites like the all free   TV Team, EZTV,  BTARENA TorrentBoxTorrent Reactor,  Torrent Hound,  Summo ,  Your Bittorrent Pirate Bay, etc..  But you’ll need a free  BitTorrent client like uTorrent before .torrent links on any site would work. Great free torrent download software now has made it all possible.. the software like the free µTorrent which is the world’s most popular BitTorrent client. Most of the features present in other BitTorrent clients are present in µTorrent, including bandwidth prioritization, scheduling, RSS auto-downloading and Mainline DHT (compatible with BitComet).
Recently  a press release was issued   suggested something quite startling — HTTP (Hyper Text Transfer Protocol, aka Web traffic) had for the first time in four years overtaken P2P. The   WWW web surfing is outpacing file sharing. Ironically, this growing is due the popularization of tools that allow users to share the files via www, tools like YouTube and Flicker. However a new article from Slyck disputes this, and contends that P2P remains the bandwidth heavyweight.   P2P (which is a class of applications, not a specific protocol) was created to deal with huge files)    Another  report based on data from   US and European ISPs claims P2P traffic has mostly dropped to around 20% of all Internet traffic,   down from the 40% two years ago  likely due to continued, widespread ISP P2P capping and MOST CONSUMER HAVE NOT BEEN HAPPY ABOUT THIS NOW AT ALL TOO. .
Do always  check your actual ISP speed  check for the blatant theft-corruption on a daily basis and ask them to fix it immediately as well..

Today, there are four main ways  to address P2P network traffic growth –

 • ISP Pricing and Policies – modifying subscription plans from unlimited to usage based pricing which is very unpopular too, it seems doubtful that subscribers used to unlimited plans will tolerate new pricing. Competitive disadvantage compared to ISPs offering flat-rate pricing

Purchasing Additional Bandwidth – buying transit bandwidth to accommodate network growth from increased P2P usage unfortunately ISP suppliers are trying to gouge the customers here too

Traffic Shaping – utilizing deep packet inspection devices to throttle or completely discriminately block P2P traffic and rightfully the customers, users see his as harassment, a contract violation and shaping P2P traffic limits future ISP revenue opportunities from more P2P services.

P2P Caching – utilizing P2P caches to cache and serve P2P content- Content caching is a well-known and established technology used by ISPs primarily for acceleration of Web content delivery. It Generates bandwidth without additional backbone investments but an Upfront investment is  required.  P2P caching, similar to Web caching, temporarily stores popular content flowing into the ISP network. If the content requested by a subscriber is available from a cache, cache satisfies the request from its temporary storage, eliminating data transfer through expensive transit line. With estimates of over 75% of P2P content is requested multiple times, P2P content responds well to caching, manifesting high reuse patterns. Once a P2P Cache is established, the network transparently redirects all P2P traffic to a cache which either serves the file directly or passes the request onto a remote P2P user and simultaneously caches that file for the next user. Estimates are that P2P caches have seen an amazing 80% byte hit ratio, meaning that 4 of 5 files requested via P2P can be served by the cache. This is significantly much higher than http/web caching. P2P Caching is the only solution that enables ISPs to fully and affordably embrace P2P on their networks. Instead of growing bandwidth to meet increasing demand, or limiting P2P usage through policies or traffic shaping, P2P Caching lets ISPs simultaneously serve the needs of P2P and non-P2P users without negatively impacting either audience. In fact, P2P Caching provides an improved experience for all subscribers – P2P users whose file sharing is improved through using the cache, and non-P2P users who experience better performance from networks un-congested from P2P traffic.

The Canadian cellphone and internet speeds, rates are unacceptably among world’s worst, Canadians are being hosed for more and more money for their access still too.   Rogers, Bell, Videotron, Shaw, Telus all only care about one thing.. maximum profits.. motivated by maximum greed.. finding an excuse to charge the customer for more.. and that they have done with their regulating, capping… and no one cares about what the consumer thinks, even the  politicians, governments, the CRTC included.  No companies provide a FULL  service or an adequate  product it seems these days…. all they provide mainly now is more profits for themselves hopefully. And as long as we allow them to do so, by letting companies and industries run roughshod over the governance of the country, then also the corprote bad service, lies, price gouging  will continue. Good Products and good services falsely are a distant second in offerings in relation to corporate profits.

 “Canada lags in wireless service …   … and what should be done about it   By Michael Geist, Citizen  August 25, 2009 Where does Canada stand with respect to the cost of wireless services?  the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development released new figures that ranked it as the third most expensive developed country.  Given that consumers have a hard time making sense of the different plans, options, and hidden fees offered by Canada’s big three wireless providers (Rogers, Bell and Telus), it should come as little surprise that comparisons of wireless services across dozens of countries is exceptionally difficult. Some countries charge consumers for both incoming and outgoing calls, while many others do not. Moreover, hidden charges such as Canada’s system access fee — which can add as much as 25 per cent to a monthly bill — are often excluded from cost calculations. While the debate will continue to rage, few currently hold Canada up as a model of wireless leadership.
If not pricing, what should policy makers and politicians be focusing on? Four main issues come to mind.
-The first is competition, particularly among GSM providers. While this will change later this year, for the moment Rogers is the only GSM provider in the country. Since GSM has emerged as the dominant global wireless technology, this has had big consequences for consumer choice and marketplace competition. Most new devices, such as the popular Apple iPhone, are available only for GSM providers, meaning that Rogers has enjoyed a virtual monopoly on the hottest devices.  There is another spectrum auction on the horizon that holds the possibility of opening the door to further competitors, particularly if Industry Minister Tony Clement is willing to revisit foreign ownership restrictions.
-The auction also provides an opportunity to address the second issue — wireless net neutrality. The current “walled garden” approach adopted by Canadian carriers, in which they frequently control the applications that run on their networks, has already attracted the attention of the CRTC. It has ruled that new regulatory requirements are needed to counter the resulting competition concerns.
-Transparency in pricing should also be addressed. Canadian carriers continue to levy system access fees as a separate charge, despite the fact that they are nothing more than an additional cost to consumers. Moreover, carriers often bury significant usage restrictions in the fine print, leaving consumers without a true sense of the cost of their mobile phones. Clear guidelines on disclosures would enable consumers to better choose among providers.
-Fourth, the length of consumer contracts further stymies competition. Canadian wireless carriers attempt to lock consumers into contracts for far longer than virtually any other developed country, with three-year contracts considered the norm. Several years ago, Canada instituted wireless number portability that allows consumers to keep their numbers when switching providers. While designed to fuel greater competition, the policy has largely failed, owing to the combined effect of a single GSM provider (meaning consumers often lose their device when switching providers) and long-term contracts.
 Canadians should be focused on competition, walled gardens, pricing transparency, and a cap on contractual terms. “

On Monday, the US FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski  outlinined  plans to turn the agency’s principles for open Internet access into official regulation.  In addition to making sure that network operators cannot prevent users from accessing lawful Internet content, applications, and services of their choice, or attaching unharmful devices to the network, Genachowski wants to add two more rules.   The first would prevent Internet access providers from discriminating against particular Internet content or applications, while allowing for reasonable network management. The second principle would ensure that Internet access providers are transparent about the network management practices they implement. But the regulation that Genachowski is proposing will not apply to just wireline broadband networks, such as DSL and cable modem service. It will also apply to wireless services. Wireless carriers shouldn’t be allowed to block certain types of Internet traffic flowing over their networks.

 FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski said wireless carriers should be subject to the same “open Internet” principles that the agency has begun to apply to home broadband providers. The FCC is already investigating the state of competition in the wireless market. Even though there are four major nationwide carriers–AT&T, Verizon Wireless, Sprint Nextel, and T-Mobile USA–the majority of the market is controlled by two carriers. And their dominance is increasing.  And the US President Obama’s anti-trust cop Christine Varney is now also  reviewing, a Bottleneck Monopoly,   the Telecom  wireless companies’ exclusive handset deals–most notably AT&T’s monopoly control over Apple’s iPhone. The US  Congress is starting to wonder whether it’s fair business.  It’s the first step in what could be a regulatory road; one that could result in major shake-ups inside the cell industry. Congress is bringing this up now because rural cell phone companies have complained that exclusivity agreements are unfair to small carriers. When the national bullies have exclusive rights to a phone, the rural cousins do also  have to peddle inferior devices. The Justice Department may also review whether telecom carriers are unduly restricting the types of services other companies can offer on their networks.  The Australian government raised pressure on Australia’s largest telecommunications company Telstra Corp.  to surrender its market domination by splitting its wholesale and retail businesses and what is Canada, the CRTC doing as well? Nothing good!

WHAT SPIN DOCTOR BELL ALSO DOES NOT TELL ALL OF IT’S CUSTOMERS .Canadian cell phone carrier, DAVE Wireless, announced  that it had signed a licensing agreement with Bell Mobility, allowing it to attach wireless transmitters to Bell’s existing cell sites. What most citizens do not realize is that wireless phones are digital based too, operating on Bell’s internet services too  AND IT FURTHER EXPLAINS WHY BELL HAS TO CAP IT INTERNET CUSTOMERS’ USAGES, DOWNLOADS OFTEN TOO, TO MAKE THE ROOM FOR THE WIRELESS PHONES AS WELL . BELL REALLY DOES NOT HAVE EXISTING ADEQUATE CAPACITY FOR BOTH, NOT EVEN FOR THE HIGH SPEED INTERNET SERVICES IN ALL AREAS OF CANADA. IT IS CLEARLY TOO CHEAP TO SPEND CAPITAL TO DO THIS?
It has always confounded me as to why the liars, crooks, deceivers, abusers in governments, churches,   institutions, corporations   too often do still do think they can get away with now, next and forever.
While the pretentious Canadian Liberal and Conservatives governments, are presently engulfed in the  Quebec mafia scandals too, while they  clearly do not care about the average citizens, about their consumer protection, yes the ordinary citizens  concerns too, but they all  wrongfully it seems to care only about big businesses making  more money at any costs, the reality of this is all  evident by the fact this  page has become the ALL TIME most read post of mine..
The federal, provincial governments, the CRTC, Conservatives, Liberals  unfairly maintaining  archaic, monopolistic telecommunication firms, that are often   bloated, cost ineffective, incompetent, over staffed, un-competitively managed as well is the main reasons consumer costs falsely keep on going up now.
TORONTO – The office of Canada’s auditor general says it’s perfectly OK – and much appreciated – if websites link to reports on its government site, but warns they should not be hosted elsewhere. Advocates for copyright reform expressed concern Thursday when the auditor general’s office demanded the Globe and Mail newspaper remove a copy of a report that had been attached to one of its online articles. The Globe was displaying the report with a web application called Scribd, which allows large documents to be embedded on a web page without the need for an external program like Adobe Reader. It also keeps readers on the same web page, rather than sending them off to another site to read the document. Beth Stewart, a lawyer for the office of auditor general Sheila Fraser, said the document was ordered off Scribd’s servers because of concerns with the website’s terms of use. It was her understanding that users of Scribd documents are permitted to alter the files and use them in other ways, Stewart said.
