Bell, BCE own profitability..

  

The departure of Nortel Networks Corp.’s CEO, a once proud flagship of Bell,  and most of its board marks the effective end of the 124-year-old company. But the remarkable aspect is that Nortel lasted as long as it did, given its rapid descent from national hero to national disgrace.  “I knew when I joined the board it was high-risk,” said Harry Pearce, who stepped down as chairman Monday after four years as a Nortel director. The litigation lawyer – a former chairman of Hughes Electronics and a former vice-chairman of General Motors – said he was under no illusions when he came on board in January, 2005, after a major accounting scandal had pushed Nortel close to the brink.  “Pearce an ex-General Motors executive – there you go, Nortel hired a blind man to lead the blind. And Nortel’s failure is not due to external factors as he states (poor economy, meltdown in capital markets, blah, blah, blah), rather it was p$$$ poor management, fraudulent accounting, etc. I don’t see any of Nortel’s competitors having problems staying afloat, in fact they all seem to be prospering in these trying times.”  http://www.theglobeandmail.com/globe-investor/ambition-gave-way-to-a-harsh-reality-pearce-zafirovski/article1246625/

“During the dot.com rush, senior BCE management embarked on a scheme to turn the company into a multi-media, converged entity. To do this they stripped Bell Canada – the telephone company – of people and used revenue formewrly used to upgrade the network, to buy the Globe and Mail and the CTV television network. They failed to support the infrastructure to compete with the cable companies. But the dazzle in their eyes was caused by the almost mythical idea of multi-media empires delivering content to homes throughout North America on phone lines. It was a great idea except they forgot they were still running a phone company and that the infrastructure needed to be upgraded FIRST. It was like putting a $50,000 bathroom in a house with old windows and a leaking roof. Today, Bell has a patchwork network, with the best service in the major urban centres (high-speed internet and cell coverage), while smaller markets make do with less. Bell has been bleeding hundreds of thousands of customers for several years, service has fallen and, as I mentioned, it is patchwork quality, depending on where you live.  In the corporate boardrooms incompetence seems to pay. Jean Monty, former CEO, raked in millions when he left in shame, and I can hardly wait to see Sabia’s nice little package when he turns the lights out.”  http://wordylefty.wordpress.com/2007/06/26/the-ugly-demise-of-bell-canada-june-26-2007/
 
It seems that Bell, BCE continually now faces bad news about it’s own profitability..
  
Needless to say greedy Bell and the others had expected to gouge all if it’s customers, old and new  forever as well but things rarely go as expected especially for Bell for the customers are not stupid. Bell’s promises of future revenue increases  and improved great services based on their past performances to date also are not valid, reliable. It seems the Zebra too still cannot change it’s stripes. http://www.theglobeandmail.com/report-on-business/recessionary-dip-or-permanent-decline/article1244199/

Canada’s largest wireless companies are now clearly wrestling with their first real decline in smart  phones customers’ monthly spending, and wondering if it is a sign of the times or a harbinger of the future. “The companies have spent billions to deploy networks and are stocked with fashionable smart phones. But even as Canadians snap up the latest handsets and sign three-year data contracts, operators are seeing average revenue from each customer fall. Is the drop a result of the recession, or does it reflect the more competitive landscape that is about to see even more players enter the field? BCE’s Bell Canada said yesterday that it generated 4 per cent less money on average from its wireless customers in the last quarter, compared with a year earlier.That follows similar news last week from rival Rogers Communications Inc. , which reported a drop of more than 2 per cent. Today. The downward trend of what the industry calls ARPU – for average revenue per user – is significant for Bell, Rogers and Telus because they rely on wireless as their engine for growth.  As part of its second-quarter financial report, the company said it signed 45,000 new wireless customers in the period, compared with 83,000 in the second quarter of 2008. In addition to the fewer new accounts, Bell said ARPU fell $2.22, to $52.05 a month. Both results fell short of analysts’ expectations and crimped BCE’s overall performance, with profit dipping 4 per cent and sales down 2 per cent. “People are actually using the product less in the economy, from a voice perspective,”  “A decline in employment means a declining use in wireless and we are seeing that. BCE executives agree that tougher competition, especially among their discount brands, is a factor. But they say it is being offset by customers’ adoption of new data services, which generated 28 per cent more revenue in the quarter from a year earlier.  A key step involves cutting costs, which BCE has done by eliminating several thousand jobs over the past year. Executives said it has also improved quality of service, eliminating many customer calls. General and administrative expenses were down 11 per cent in the quarter, which helped bump gross margins up to 40 per cent. Other steps include the recent purchase of the 50 per cent of Virgin Mobile Canada Bell didn’t already own; the acquisition of electronics retailer The Source and its 750 stores nationwide;  and a more aggressive branding campaign. In addition, the company is building a new national wireless network on the leading wireless standard of the day, called HSPA. Bell is sharing the development costs with Telus and both companies   expect  to launch service on it by year-end.  Bell TV turned in the best performance of the quarter, with video revenue rising 9 per cent to $389-million.

Meanwhile , Bell Canada is taking the federal broadcast regulator to court to stop the country’s big networks from charging cable and satellite companies for their TV signals. Bell, which owns Canada’s largest satellite service, known as Bell TV, alleges in documents filed with the Federal Court of Appeal that the broadcast regulator has overstepped its jurisdiction and has asked a judge to intervene. The move comes after the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission said in May it would let large conventional networks, such as CTV and Global Television, negotiate with cable and satellite carriers on compensation for their signals. The court filing is unorthodox, since it is extremely rare for a company to challenge the CRTC so directly. The bitter debate has driven a wedge down the middle of the broadcasting industry in Canada, and these court filings demonstrate how contentious the issue has become. There is already tension between Bell Canada and CTV, the television network in which Bell owns a stake, and this case will only increase it since the two sides could meet in court. Bell owns 15 per cent of CTVglobemedia, which is the parent company of CTV and also owns The Globe and Mail.  Paul Sparkes, CTV executive vice-president of corporate affairs, also reserved comment. “As the matter is before the courts, it’s not appropriate for us to comment on the substance of the appeal,” he said. “We are confident that the Federal Court of Appeal will see this for what it is, a stall tactic.” ” Interesting how Bell fought very hard and successfully to get the feds to bring in laws against people who use “black boxes” to take Bell’s satellite signals without paying. Now Bell wants to take the network’s signals, without paying for them, and then charge customers for these signals. Seems very inconsistent to me! ”  http://www.theglobeandmail.com/report-on-business/bell-takes-tv-fight-to-court-to-escape-regulators-squeeze/article1243859/

It is no surprise to me that mobile companies are overpricing their wireless internet services so that only businesses can afford this service.  A wireless spectrum auction last year attempted to improve competition but there is still lots of work to be done. Most mobiles available in Canada come locked to a multi-year contract  http://healthinformaticist.wordpress.com/2009/06/09/oh-canada-isp-censorship-and-internet-slippage/

THE CRTC flubs it again

Registered with the do-not-call list? Expect more calls, says consumer watchdog

 Friday, January 23, 2009 |   CBC News  Canada’s highly touted do-not-call list is having the opposite effect, leading to more telemarketer calls, says the Consumers’ Association of Canada. “It’s a travesty,” president Bruce Cran said Friday. “Here we have all these people thinking they were getting rid of incoming phone calls. Anyone who is registered should suspect their phone number is being broadcast to the four winds.” The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission launched the registry in September to great fanfare, promising that those who registered would see a drop in unwanted calls soliciting goods and service. Millions of Canadians have registered their names, home phone numbers and in some cases their cellphone numbers. The problem, said Cran, is that the CRTC sells the registry list online. “In Toronto, you can get 600,000 names for $50,” he said. Telemarketers are required to subscribe to the list, paying an annual fee that depends on how often they chose to download updates. Those who violate the list by calling registrants may be fined up to $15,000 per call.  Chilliwack, B.C., real estate consultant Jim Stocco said he suspects the “avalanche of calls” he and his wife have been fielding lately is a result of having registered with the do-not-call list.  Before registering, Stocco had managed to bring unwanted phone solicitations down to about one a week by calling back telemarketers and asking them to take his phone number off their list.  “This do-not-call registry has made things worse. We now get five or six calls a day,” he said. “We both work at home and have clients across North America so we will answer calls. It has been a major irritant.”  Stocco said when he tries to call telemarketers back to ask that his number be taken off their list, he gets a voice mailbox that does not accept messages.  Glenn Thibeault, NDP critic for consumer protection, wrote to the federal privacy commissioner Jennifer Stoddart on Jan. 16 urging her to investigate.  “When the service is not only ineffective but assists in worsening the problem, Canadians have a right to be concerned, ” he said.   A spokesperson for the commissioner said Friday that she was aware of the problem before being contacted by Thibeault. “We are concerned as well,” said Heather Ormerod. “We are in contact with the CRTC and trying to gather relevant information to see how to proceed.”

 

I already rightfully have a very low opinion of the too often Useless CRTC

“Unfair” players

                tal  
We still do need real accountability, and the real beefing up of the enforcements, regulations against the much too many con artists liars, thieves, crooks, imposters, pretenders. being basically motivated by greed, increasing the profits. Bait and switch,  Misleading advertising, Unfair and Restrictive business trade practices seem to be a common thing in the Internet Service Providers  industry too, especially since generally the ISP are unregulated both by the Courts and the governments. It is a sad reality that even what is advertised is also next what the customer next consistently gets. ”  The first biggest unacceptable bad culprits still who need to be fired ASAP are those rather toothless, pretentious, federal and provincial consumer Ministers and their mostly bad subordinates. Healthy Competition was supposedly a good way to decrease  the prices and increase the services, but instead we get price fixings, unfair and restrictive trade practices.. which still all reminds me of the bad immoral Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper trying to murder all of the opposition  out of existence too.. for he himself is no better as a leader, example of ethics, morality too. We do need still  a new real,  tougher cop on the beat. to strengthen all business, financial regulatory agencies and crack down on runaway “greed and scheming” , to really clean up the worlds of politics , finance, business and really  help to put in help put in place new, common-sense rules of the road that will protect investors, consumers and our entire economy from fraud and manipulation by an irresponsible few caused also by a  lack of “adult supervision” and  managers not being    as aggressive as they should in properly managing subordinates, others. Conservative  and Liberal governments administration’s laissez-faire philosophy is also  allowing excessive risk and corruption at the highest echelons and also by too many people with a false disdain for regulation. We need more activist regulatory approaches,  no-nonsense regulators. Too many of these crooks are still governed by a mentality governed by the principle that, “whatever is good for me, I do.”  Behave Honourable or you will be fired, terminated message  needs to be to apply to a range of social, physical, financial, governmental  institutions — and to individuals across right across the board. A real  restoration of a sense of responsibility, personal accountability  and the notions of  advocating beneficial values not just for ourselves, but what’s good for the others, the country as a whole, operating in reality out of a sense of what is being done is for the common good , Our too often poor Regulators do unacceptably “drop the ball,” and have failed to crack down on the bad culture of greed and scheming, to take seriously their own responsibility to “operate honourably.  The CRTC also itself has not put much of a dent in fraud, abuses,  and the entire system needs an overhaul. The CRTC also has missed too many red flags in its oversight of it’s duties, responsibilities..

Clearly you cannot trust too often crooked Bell or the CRTC .  “Why is Bell allowed to control stuff that isn’t theirs? ” ” However I do have a problem with wholesalers, customers not being able to use the full speed of a network. After all, they pay for the full speed when getting it from the phone companies. They should get the full speed.”  ”  Bell’s known poor acts, actions deserve all kinds of vilification.  What a completely asinine company Bell is. I will never, ever deal with them again. Worst company I’ve ever encountered, what stupid business practices.” ” Bell’s actions too often are still motivated by a desire to undermine competition  and to  increase their customer base seems too often as well to lose more customers.. ” Bell and Rogers caused a lot of the problem themselves, with selling so called “unlimited” packages, only to find new applications use more bandwidth than they had available ot had deployed.  “  “It is not just about the price too,   Bell can be real jerks to its customers. I used to be one until I got sick of their lack of customer service, etc., and even having 2 providers Bell and Rogers/local cable providers essentially in Ontario will NOT decrease prices. Look at the current cell-phone market as an indirect example of how low competition keeps prices high. ” ” and are they Bell and the others going to put unadvertised cap on how much we could download because basically the can to meet their advertised speeds due to their bolster, too often inadequate support structures, equipment too..” Bottom line is that when it comes to telecommunications and especially high speed internet, no one can be trusted, for  the fact is that ISP   – Cable, Telco etc – on their own will not invest in faster networks and bigger coverage areas because of the costs, and the main Corporate desire not to offer a service but a false desire  to make maximum profits with a minimum of capital investment. Services will evolve but at a slower pace until competitors are forced to invest in their own infrastrucuture.

The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission on Thursday issued a decision ordering Canada’s big phone companies, including Bell, Telus Corp., MTS Allstream Inc., SaskTel and Bell Aliant, to offer the same internet speeds to smaller wholesale customers as they themselves sell on a retail basis.” Service speed is an important competitive attribute, with rates differing significantly by speed and speed often being a major differentiation point from a marketing standpoint,” the CRTC ruled.

Under existing CRTC regulations, the big phone companies are required to rent out their networks to smaller service providers, who then sell internet access to their own customers. The rules boost the number of competitors selling internet access to the public, and thus keep prices down and service levels up. The regulations, however, have only applied to older infrastructure based in phone companies’ centralized office buildings.

Recently, phone companies have been pushing their networks out of those buildings by putting new equipment into streetside cabinets in an effort to boost their customers’ internet speeds. Smaller internet service providers haven’t had regulated access to those cabinets, however, which means they have been limited to selling slower speeds than those offered by the big phone companies.

In Quebec, for example, Bell has been selling internet connections with download speeds around 16 megabits per second while small ISPs have topped out at less than half that. The phone companies will only be required to offer faster speeds to wholesale ISPs when they sell them on a retail basis in a given area. Smaller ISPs will therefore have to request the faster connections from the phone companies. Bell, Telus and the others have 45 days to file with the CRTC the proposed rates they intend to charge the small ISPs for faster services. The rates will have to represent the actual cost of the service, plus “a reasonable mark-up,” the regulator said.

..the CRTC launched a larger inquiry into how much control large network owners such as Bell, Telus, Rogers Communications Inc. and Shaw Communications Inc., should have over the internet connections they sell to customers.” http://www.cbc.ca/technology/story/2008/12/12/tech-crtc.html
 
 “The CRTC has had a “cosy” relationship with Bell for as long as I can remember. It is obvious it continues. Short of replacing all the Commissioners with officials elected by net users this will never change. Time for a “revolution” IMO.” ” I really wonder who we have in charge of the CRTC. I would prefer a 13 year old nerd that has the slightest clue about the new hype of the Internet, ”
 
” Net neutrality is one of the most significant “sleeper” issues that will confront the people of Canada over the next decade. Just as we have demanded regulation for our road traffic and public utilities, we will demand fair access to our data services and even to each other. 
 
“Indeed, it is important not to lose sight of how much has changed in the past year. In the fall of 2007, net neutrality was viewed as a fringe issue in Canada without much political traction. In the span of 12 months, there has been a major CRTC case, the Angus bill, a rally on Parliament Hill, a more vocal business community supporting net neutrality and a gradual shift of this issue into the political mainstream. ”  http://www.thestar.com/sciencetech/article/542156  http://www.neutrality.ca/

Fair game
 
MONTREAL — The chairman of Bell Canada (TSX:BCE) and three other directors plan to step down from telecom giant’s board early next year, following the collapse of the $52 billion takeover by private equity.

Richard Currie, who was president of Loblaws parent company, George Weston Ltd., is expected to be replaced by Thomas O’Neill at the company’s next shareholders’ meeting in February.

The move was widely expected since the failure of the proposed privatization of Bell Canada by a consortium led by the Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan.

Also exiting the board are Judith Maxwell, John McArthur and Robert Pozen.

Currie said serving as BCE chairman during the tumultuous time of change was one of the great honours of his business career.

“The specific measures to create shareholder value announced last Friday make this an opportune time for me to relinquish my board duties,” he stated.

The 71-year-old Currie was elected BCE chairman in April 2002.

O’Neill has served on several committees since joining the board in 2003. The former CEO of PricewaterhouseCoopers is a director of Adecco S.A., the Bank of Nova Scotia (TSX:BNS), Loblaw Companies Ltd. (TSX:L), Nexen Inc. (TSX:NXY), and St. Michael’s Hospital in Toronto.

ISP false, misleading adds

 
Stop now today,  the unacceptable,  misleading Rogers, Bell, Videotron  ISP adds about having the  fastest internet connection or the most powerfull  that firstly  do not mention their download cappings now too!!
 
 Rogers and Bell Sympatico has each announced super fast internet service, Everyone is misleading the customers in Canada, DSL and Cable ISP  that they are providing the fastest internet speeds, but there is a catch, this is not their basic common services offered.. 
 
but also  that should be available from Rogers even only by the end of the year 2008.  More bad news is that it won’t be cheap! Customers can expect to pay about $100 per month plus taxes in order to have the fastest internet connection on their block
 
Bell and Rogers present adds are misleading about their speeds which are Not available in most parts   of Canada firstly too
 
Rogers Cable Communications today announced plans to launch an even faster   internet service, which will offer customers the fastest residential service. rogers Yahoo! Hi-Speed Elite will provide a speed of up to 18 megabits per. Rogers Cable announced Elite high speed internet (HSI) service that it says will provide download speeds of up to 18 megabits per second. The company did not announce upload speeds.
 
Bell Canada today announced the availability of Sympatico Optimax   which promises maximum download speeds of 16 megabits per second (Mbps). Sympatico will offer two levels of service . A 10 Mbps service for $70 per month and a 16 Mps service for $100 per month. Both services will have a 75 GB bandwith cap.  The company did not announce download speeds, however, it is expected to be the same as the Sympatico Optimax service in Montreal which has an upload speed of 1 Mbps.
 
Do rightfully Make them all more honest, more transparent about the type of services, speeds they do offer now and where as well..
 
Bell and  Rogers throttles BitTorrent to hell and back. The only workaround some say is  is to use port 1720, which is a temporary solution only. Because Rogers throttles BitTorrent and other P2P, and they’re not gonna leave port 1720 unthrottled forever. cap your upload to 75-80% of your actual maximum (in KiB/s).. there are other options.. merely leave Bell and Rogers..
 
Capping: The Criminal Code of Canada’s section 184.2.c.i-ii DOES NOT warrant them to do packet sniffing. It allows them to ONLY ‘sample’ traffic for quality reasons. You need to remember that these rules were drafted to stop people making their own wire taps on phone technology. What the statement is saying is that: If I am a phone tech I am allowed to connect to the line to check for hums/crackels/dead-service and then do my job to fix it. With Internet traffic you may not capture a person’s traffic unless a court order is issued to do so. The subject of traffic shaping is very different…They are looking into packet headers and making changes that are not a privacy issue…

 The future is wireless, some would say  and the  past way they have mismanaged their past land line, ISP services too,  clearly indicates they will do it also next with the wireless services too at the users, customers expenses…
  
Recent discussions by both Bell and Rogers on their Corporate need  to get more and more money, with even any excuse, still out of consumers, and to throttle the downloads,  only all clearly confirms the reality as to how poorly managed these same companies in reality are still.. They too now have been wrongfully over subsidized by the CRTC, the Canadian  federal governments now too… now it is rather time the citizens got the break, protection.

Net neutrality bill hits House

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

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

Net neutrality bill hits House of Commons

“Net neutrality bill hits House of Commons

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Canadian government, courts and Bell

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

 

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

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

Who is next?

  
” Foreign Affairs Minister Maxime Bernier was the first firing in the 28-month Canadian Conservative government’s reign under Prime Minister Stephen Harper. Another revelation emerged over the weekend about Ms. Couillard’s connections to an airport security company, yet the Conservatives still refused to entertain the notion this might be a cause for concern. But I suspect the kicker clearly came yesterday when Stephen Harper was confronted by his Minister’s troubled romance in the middle of a news conference with Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko. Was Ms. Couillard a security risk? What about the latest revelation? While President Yushchenko looked baffled by the reporter’s questions, Mr. Harper’s steely-eyed fury was the sure sign of a Prime Minister on the verge of snapping at the embarrassment of it all. Aware that Ms. Couillard was set to give her first television interview as a woman scorned and clearly in love with publicity, Mr. Harper stormed away from the microphone. That should’ve put Mr. Bernier on notice he was about to lose his status as the greatest francophone hope to become the next Conservative leader. Insiders say it’s highly doubtful Mr. Bernier left of his own accord. That hardly matters. Mr. Bernier’s resignation letter, as is the case with every minister, sits in the Prime Minister’s desk. It can be retrieved at will and used under any pretext. There is no appeal from a prime minister who serves as judge, jury and executioner. Mr. Bernier was found guilty of following his heart more than his head and being more trouble than he’s worth. In Stephen Harper’s government, that’s a crime worthy of capital punishment. (and at least with a Taser as well? but the leader himself had made the wrong choice now)” http://www.nationalpost.com/opinion/columnists/story.html?id=04e1f2b6-a576-4365-a46d-279eae94d67d&p=2
 
And  Jesus never sold one Sermon of his, nor the Apostles… so I rightfully cannot stand those greedy, money lusting charlatans who clearly try to make money by selling Christian literature, tapes, music, or what ever on the subject of Prophecy, healing, etc., .. and no matter what their excuses are now too.. Jesus said as you have freely received so freely give. And that is what I have done the last 4 decades too… and so should we all, trusting in the Faith for God to supply our needs, not begging for money, or wrongfully stealing by pretending to be a non profitable tax exempt corporation, organization basically so not to pay taxes as well.. How greedy can you get and pretend it to be Christian now too is the game many wrongfully play too even pastors….
   
Now there is another common scam I do not like, groups, churches who often choose a valid cause, since the best way to catch fish, suckers is with live bait, and then do next do ask for related donations, money.. this advertised cause tends to be rather an inefficient  self employment creation, and is not a real public services.. for to get most complaints, issues handled properly all you do generally have to do is to post it firstly on the net, and also write to the News media  with copies to the  elected officals
  
Public exposure works great.. The question I also still do rightfully have is who is next? All Ministers need to to beware…
 
 “Keep State & Church separate, or they will intertwine and once they are merged, vice enters and corruption begins” ?  “And I agree, 100% of all Churches too  should be investigated as should all politicians (those who govern/lead through laws) even in regards to what, if any, “crossovers” have occurred that are violations of State law.”
 
Some people think that  Separation of Church and State politics, is the main issue that  will help to stop the acts of much too many bad guys in politics and religion.. There are bad guys, bad Ministers now too  continually in or out of relgion in fact.
 
Separation of Church and State politics, and related corruption is just a very small small portion, issue.. Rather all major perversions, corruptions by anyone, politicians, priests, pastors are,  is unacceptable anywhere and at anytime too. For both politicians, Pastors and cops all civil and public servants too are here to help look after the good welfare of the citizens and if they are not doing that JOB NOW properly they all should be helped to become unemployed for sure BY THEIR CORRUPTIONS, ABUSES BEING EXPOSED TO ALL..
 
Religious or not is not the issue.. but the second law of engineering thermodynamics is, energy goes from a higher level to a lower level, it degenerates, meaning even water unrestrained flows downhill, or 30 percent of all people need to be put into a real jail it seems before they will stop their wrong doings and start to do good.. reality.. for self supervision or self regulation does not work, crudely it is just masturbation.. In reality too many people left on their own will continue to cheat, lies, steal, abuse others, the pastors and cops, politicians included now. They all need to be regulated, supervised by the governments and some now rightfully even arrested too. A man’s enemies, bullies and thieves will be those persons even from his own family are still a reality too.
 
The really bad persons unless they are exposed, punished will likely never change for the good on their own in fact? Public exposure and prosecution of the guilty works best for everyone. Now I have been writing letters to news editors, governments. for that is part of their job now too, and I have helped in exposing the bad guys and the bad corporations for decades too and thus rightfully helping to get rightfully deal with some of the really unacceptable bad guys and so should we all..
 
Us Senator John McCain  had fallen under condemnation by the news media for accepting the endorsement of Rev John Hagee . Wikipedia describes “John C. Hagee [as] the founder and senior pastor of Cornerstone Church in San Antonio, Texas, a non-denominational charismatic church with more than 19,000 active members.”
 
Rev John Hagee clearly states that he is not anti catholic or antigay but he is Anti Semitism and he is working on behalf of Israel and this highlights his belief.. but his dispensational theology support of Israel are not substantiated by the New Testament still. God loves both Jew and Arab as well as all of the Gentiles.
 
The Bad Unacceptable theology – Christian Dispensationalism – Dispensationalism is basically false and it is the method of interpreting the scriptures that sees two distinct peoples of God, with two distinct destinies – Israel and the Church. It is not a coincident that too many Dispensationalists do also oppose the work of the THE HOLY SPIRIT today as well, HIS Charismatic GIFTS NOW TOO. Toni, at FilesfromToni blog has posted a very good link to vital information for those wondering where the money which is given to different Christian Zionist organizations is really going and how its NOT being used. http://filesfromtoni.blogspot.com/  http://anyonecare.wordpress.com/2008/05/23/good-and-bad-unacceptable-theology/  http://anyonecare.wordpress.com/tag/israel/
 
The criticism of Rev Hagee, right or wrong is just the tip of the iceberg of discontentment against too many so called Christian pastors in America.  I know I pastored a church for a few years, and in the last 50 years I have encountered too many many mostly bad pastors, and 70 percent of evangelical pastors have admitted they had committed adultery and they even do counsel divorce for a start. The false misappropriation of funds in many churches in north America is so common so I had rightfully asked even the US government to investigate all of the churches- Pentecostal, Catholic, Baptist for their possible misappropriation of funds equally, annually in fact months ago too. 
 
For a start most churches ask you to the, give ten percent of your income to the church, but tithing is also an old testament concept and not enforceable in the new testament. In the old testament the tithers, and those who received the tithers had to insure that 1/7 of the donations were given to the local poor people. So I asked any church that advocated tithe that they prove as well they have kept this Biblical requirements, for almost none do it for it start. On top of that any clergy receiving tithing in the old testament was not allowed to own any real estate , tangible property too. If you are going to preach the law here on tithing too, then you yourself should observe all of it, not just mostly steal the tithe.
 
It seems these days Pastors, cops, politicians, Ministers tend to be still next equally all bad if left on their own, unsupervised?

Bell, BCE

Bell, BCE shares plunge 12% after court ruling still needs to see how it’s customers do see Bell too…
 
Why is it that even so many managers and their subordinates too  falsely believe they will not reap what they sow now, the bad things they do included?
Bell is well over its glory days, and comparing to other operators around the world, it is a mediocre buy at that price. they have been caught sleeping at the wheel too often and not being fair to its customers too often too. They should do their homework first, build on solid ‘sound’ principles first and then see if somebody is willing to put money into it. For now it is simply a purchase of a skeleton out of tune with the industry and a history of burning up good Canadian talent at the expense of the shareholders, and at contempt for the bona fide user. Bell go back to your core business and do a good job and then its time will come. I am glad I own no teachers fund equity.”
 
“I see Bell Canada as an out-of-date behemoth. I recently paid my last ever bill to Bell Canada something I vowed to do in 1999 after realizing just how bad my Bell Canada abuse their land line customers. Recently, at long last, my internet provide, a cable co. began to offer phone over cable in my area. ‘
 
Bell have two very odd charges that add up to a lot of money. And at that, they are of course taxed making it worse:1) Network Access Fee. What is this? Why do we have to pay a fee to access the service that is offered as the landline. This is simply a naked cash grab.2) Touch Tone fee of $2.80. Bell Canada’s switches have been “modernized” for over 20 years where the switch circuit can equally take pulse (rotary dial) and tone dialing. Whether you operate a touchtone phone or a rotary dial, it makes absolutely no cost difference to Bell Canada. However, where about 13 M Canadian lines are paying touch-tone service, this amounts to a naked cash grab of $500M per year for Bell Canada.My Bell Canada landline was $28.69 with Bell Canada. My Videotron cable phone is $16.95 for identical level of service.That works out to a hair under $160/year with taxes.            

Over 2M Canadians now have cable based phone. Most of those were former Bell Canada customers.

I will not miss Bell Canada at all. The Ontario Teachers’ Pension Fund should look very carefully at what it is that they are buying.”
 
 
Undeniably  a lot of people hate do Bell, many past dissatisfied customers who also do undeniably also vent their anger at the government’s, CRTC past poor inactions here too.
 
When Bell misleads,  lies and says it has the fastest internet speed in Canada that does not mean every home has that speed firstly, or continually for that matter too. Also be honest and fair when Bell lies and distorts it’s advertised internet downloads speed as being up to  7 megs,  maximum, rather Bell should honestly say it’s downloads speeds are a minimum of 1.1 megs or more.
 
These comments above by others even do confirm what I have openly said before too that Bell has not only abused their past land line customers, and their internet customers because Bell still has much too many unacceptable poor executives, managers who do falsely abuse their customers, and Bell does try to make any false cash grabs from the customers, or rather plain  old fashion thefts from the customers, that they can and much too often? I have also clearly said before too that Bell cannot be trusted. Bell  needs to be fully regulated. And I have also rightly said someone should tell the Ontario school teachers’ what a bad deal  buying Bell is and that is now being done too.
 
BCE now looking to the Supreme Court for help instead of looking at itself, it’s poor mangers  is another absurdity or Bell threatening to sue me, cutting of my Sympatico internet  for telling the truth about Bell to others too is another unacceptable absurdity now too!!
 
Bell has only itself to blame for all of this, not anyone else, especially not the users, customers.
 
Just a reminder. There are many basic reasons for a Corporation’s downfall. Besides having selected bad, over paid or underpaid executives, managers, employees firstly there is the management style itself., which can include  theft and/or abusing the customers too, over pricing too. Now I am not alone, just one of many in these observations too. A firms starts to abuse the customers. so it’s sales volume and profitability reduces, so to compensate they often do a false survey, generally false cause they have no intention of facing up to their own negative contributions, basic truths, and/or  the blame it on others, unions, interest rates, banks, courts even.. sound recently familiar? So what do they generally do, well they tighten their belts, get rid of some of the employees, the fish begins to rots from the head, but they tend to cut of the tail first, and it still really does not help. So the bad Corporation managers they  tighten the belt some more, they now offer less services to the customers, and increase the pricing too? Sound familiar? Look at how Bell Sympatico had responded to their competitors, their internet services this year and the significant negative feedback, reaction they got too from their customers. The fact that Bell Sympatico, and Rogers too now in the last year have been the most hated, the most negatively discussed topic, corporations on Canada’s internet is undeniable too. Just also look at Bell’s higher pricing over the competition, and it now still also explains why Bell is at war also with it’s competitors and not just the customers too, and why Bell has undeniably so many dissatisfied customers now too. So the Corporations common solution of jacking up the prices, cutting back on the customer services of course predictably next it even leads to a more dramatic economic loss, loss of their customers,  and do you really think they amongst many others executive managers would learn from any of this? Management still had to cut off it’s own head, the bad exemplary  executive managers? The Corporation next had kept on   on tightening the belt so much that they next choked themselves to death, have come to an irreversible place. All simple too. I have seen the same thing been done by computer resellers, and also by large grocery corporations, such as Super C, Provigo, some managers still never do learn from their mistakes and the whole firm  suffers for it, especially next the shareholders.
  
Bell Sympatico next as per the last letter to me, contrary to my rightful objection is falsely going to disconnect my internet services with them as of May 31, 2008 to try to shut me up, they are going to breach my contract with me, and Jim Prentice, Consumer Affairs,  did, do not help in these matters to date. I got a useless reply from the federal consumer’s office too before , even from  Dussault.Madeleine@cb-bc.gc.ca,  l;ike i had said  they  did  not do much good in these matters too to date. How many more citizens will have to wrongfully suffer because of the detail, witnessed  Bell’s immoral management before the federal consumer affairs department and CRTC deals with it all adequately and fully now too?
      
Cult (totalistic type): A group or movement exhibiting a great or excessive devotion or dedication to some person, idea, or thing and employing unethically manipulative techniques of persuasion and control (e.g. isolation from former friends and family, debilitation, use of special methods to heighten suggestibility and subservience, powerful group pressures, information management, suspension of individuality or critical judgment, promotion of total dependency on the group and fear of leaving it, etc.), designed to advance the goals of the group’s leaders, to the actual or possible detriment of members, their families, or the community. (West & Langone, 1986, pp. 119-120) and funny how that describes the past reactions of Both Bell and the CRTC to my post as well.. they also both banned me from their own internet sites for my posting the negative truths they do not want others to read..

Crap

“Auditor balks at vetting by PMO   TheStar.com | Canada |   Independent watchdog will not abide by rule to run public statements by officials, Fraser says May 01, 2008 04:30 AM bruce campion-smith Ottawa bureau chief   OTTAWA-Ottawa’s financial watchdog says she won’t go along with draft government rules that she says would undermine the independence of officers of Parliament like herself. Auditor-General Sheila Fraser found allies yesterday who condemned the Conservative proposal, which could mean that Parliament’s officers must vet their public statements through a wing of the Prime Minister’s Office, as an unprecedented attack on the independence of the officers, who are supposed to work at arm’s length. The draft proposal would lump in Fraser, along with other officers of Parliament such as the head of Elections Canada, and the privacy, information and ethics commissioners with all other government departments and demand they get high-level approval before speaking out. “It’s absolutely unacceptable and it’s an attack on the independence of officers of Parliament,” NDP MP David Christopherson (Hamilton Centre) said yesterday. “This will be resolved. It’s just a matter of how much dust do we have to kick up and how far do we have to drag the Prime Minister kicking and screaming to acknowledge that there are people in this country that he doesn’t control.”  Fraser  made clear she wouldn’t co-operate anyway with the proposed edict. “I do not believe there is any kind of … ill will towards officers of Parliament,”  “When they issue these policies, to be quite frank, they don’t consider officers of Parliament. We’re six relatively small agencies,” Fraser said. The draft communications plan would demand that communications “products” be vetted by the Privy Council Office, which is the bureaucratic wing of the Prime Minister’s Office, and other high-level government officials. “I truly believe that the government itself recognizes that would be inappropriate,” Fraser said.   Fraser revealed the existence of the proposed policy Tuesday when she appeared before the Commons public accounts committee to discuss her office’s operations. “Recently, for example, there’s a draft communication policy going around that would have all communication strategies, all communications, everything, go through Privy Council Office,” Fraser told MPs. “Well, I can tell you there is no way that my press releases about my report are going to go to Privy Council Office or our communications strategies are going to be vetted by Privy Council Office.”  ” Treasury Board President Vic Toews his department had refused to release a copy of the draft communications plan.  http://www.thestar.com/News/Canada/article/420225

Bells race against time

Even in the US the Bells are losing heavily to the Cable guys, who are bleeding them to death next too,  and in desperations  the Bells are  looking for any other possible sources of revenues.. *** But had they not abused, screwed their customers so often, the customers would not have so readily transferred to the cable ISPs. When the past Bells customers do  transfer to cable  they take not just their internet services es but their phone lines and next they rarely come back to the Bells too.. and the Bells revenues go down seriously.
 
Now “Baby Bells are in a race against time, trying to get their video services rolled out before they lose their grip over their core franchise: the voice customer. It is critical for the phone companies to keep people talking on their lines, if they want to sell them broadband and video services in the future, a point we had made earlier.UBS Research report shows that dark ominous clouds have gathered over the Bellville, and provides a statistical support for my thesis. 

  • In the fourth quarter 2006, the Bells lost 5.1% of homes served on an annual basis, driven by increasing cable voice net adds. Consumer revenues skidded as a result.
  • Currently, in the US Bells pass roughly 97 million homes and serve 64 million on a retail basis, about 65% penetration of homes passed. That’s down from 68% penetration a year ago.
  • Cable is eating their lunch. The top seven cable companies added 964,000 new telephony subscribers, getting to a total of about 8.3 million voice subscribers (estimated) or about 7.3% of U.S. households, up from 4.5% a year ago. The independent VoIP players have 2.6 million subscribers. The total cable & VoIP competition represents nearly 10% of the U.S. households, versus 6% of US households a year ago.
  • The consumer ARPU could not completely offset volume declines. Broadband revenues are slowing as well, mostly due to increased penetration.

 

Bells got $34 in average DSL revenues in the fourth quarter, down 9% annually, and only added 1.138M new subscribers in 4Q, down 18% annually and 3% sequentially. The Bells now penetrate 33% of homes served with broadband, up from 31% in the 3 quarter 2006 and 25% a year ago. AT& T leads the group with 39% penetration, followed by BellSouth at 34%, and Verizon and Qwest at 29% each.  DSL revenues are becoming a larger portion of the Bell revenues – about 20% of consumer ARPU, and any access line losses means that that the bells’ addressable market for DSL (and video) services declines quite a bit. Among the Bells, AT&T generated the highest contribution from DSL at 21% and Verizon the lowest at 18%. http://gigaom.com/2007/03/05/bell-accessline-losses-4q2006/

“Pike & Fisher calculate that the Bells — AT&T, Verizon and Qwest added 755,000 net broadband customers in the fourth quarter of 2007, the lowest level in five years. As we have noted earlier, broadband growth is slowing in the U.S., and we should expect more intense marketing battles.” http://gigaom.com/2008/02/22/bell-broadband-stalls/
 

***  Bell Canada

Well here again I sit and write about a multi-billion dollar corporation screwing its’ customers any way and every way it can.  This time it is the god of phones, Bell Canada.

After my move in early December 2007 I left Bell’s service for Phone and Internet to go with Rogers……yes I know from the sublime to the ridiculous.  Anyway, Bell’s Internet Service sucked, so I took it along with my phone to Rogers (the phone went because I could not pass up 6 free months).  The only reason I did not leave Bell for television was the fact that I have purchased over the last short while close to $1000 in equipment for High Definition TV.

I called Bell anyway, and told them that I was considering leaving.  When they heard that, they pretty much fell over themselves to keep me a customer.  It’s funny how places like this will do nothing for you until you threaten to, or really do leave. 

***Side note: since leaving for Rogers with my phone and Internet, Bell has called me three times!

In any case, they (Bell) offered me 2 months completely free TV, 6 months at 30% off, and the kicker….. A new High Definition PVR (Personal Video Recorder) for one year, FREE!   Needless to say, I stayed and this is where the fun began.

First, although Bell knew where to send my bill (because I got one at my new address they sent the installer to my old address.  It was explained that the departments don’t always talk to one another (go figure)!  So the refundable $100 installation charge went onto my account twice (because of their mistake), and only came off once.  I hd to fight this for a few calls, and on March it was dealt with.

Second, getting my two free months of TV has been like trying to walk on water!  Countless calls in January, February and yes indeed March I think I am finally going to get 2 free months.

Third, I noticed in January, and again in February that I was suddenly getting charged $20 a month for the PVR; remember the free PVR for one year?  So a few calls in January and again in February I thought I had this cleared up.  In March, they cleared the two months of charges to my bill (from January and February), but again charged me $20 for the rental.  This then led me to what probably amounted to my 15th – 20th phone call in the last 2-3 months.  As at March 24 / 2008 I m being told that my account is cleared up.  We shall see…….

In the interest of Customer Service………..BAD!  http://mypetpeeves.wordpress.com/2008/03/24/bell-canada-2/

Action, not mere words needed

  
 
What started as a simple phone call by me in January 2007 to Bell tech help line to determine why my internet services were so slow and sluggish next had  become a major farce, cover-up on the part of Bell Sympatico. I was next lied to for months as to the real reasons Bell they rather had offered me their poor internet services to me and  to many others in my city for years now too.. and then Bell had even  lied to me some more, had also breached their contractual obligations to me many times too, had allowed me even to be slandered, abused on the Bell customer forums now too.. and why? so  that clearly greedy Bell can continue stay in business to make more money..
 
and so who really cares now about the customer’s good welfare in reality? now? What not Bell itself, not the CRTC, not the federal government, not our Prime Minister Stephen Harper, not  the the federal Minister of Consumer Affairs, Jim Prentice..  not  any provincial consumer affairs Minister, but only the citizens, the news media, and the NDP party care about the citizens  good welfare really it seems. Not acceptable for sure too!

..now clearly useless LuvieDuvie:  thank you for your opinion but who had now made you the God, judge and jury of me now.. the devil?   judge me not and you will be not judged yourself.. firstly also take the big beam out of your own eyes and then you can help the others a lot better too..  for people like you who try to suck up to Bell rather still do not  help the matters for anyone.. for now Bell really rightfully needs a serious rod and not a carrot..
 
Me I had rightfully  witnessed how dirty Bell really is and I did something good about it.. I too had helped to exposé them to all for what they are really like  and rightfully too worldwide.. I told them what I was doing and why too beforehand even. Yes I do not show partiality to anyone bad cops, bad politicians, bad managers, bad pastors, bad corporations too and  I have been exposing them the last 3 decades.. for someone has to do it too.
 
I have been working with the News media, the press the last 25 years, and for a decade now too I daily write my views to all the major Newspapers, mostly in Canada, and they do next often act upon it as well. I also post my own comments on politics now too.  http://groups.msn.com/CanadaToday6  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/  The news media plays a vital role in our society, it tends to be the voice, the conscience of the majority of the people, citizens..  Yes I also do even complain about news reporters lies, spins, distortions but fortunately they have their free speech and so do many others too now, me included.. at least most of the time.. I have had the police wrongfully come to my home 6 times in my life time in Canada cause some politician did not like that I had sent him a letter with a copy to the news editors, including a prime minister, premier, mayor now too.. and I am still writing, and most of the bad guys I wrote about are out of office  sooner or later. For the news media tends not to support the losers once exposed even by me.. and no politician can win without the news media support, for advertising is very costly as even Mrs. Clinton or the  PM Stephen Harper knows. Bell relies on their adds, not the past satisfied customers for it’s business mostly still too.
 
Have a nice day Paul

Dear paul kambulow,  The thread “The Paul Kambulow Topic” in the forum titled “Miscellaneous” has received the following reply from LuvieDuvie: 

Re: The Paul Kambulow Topic 

‘I want the whole world to see what they are really out and to have BELL GO OUT OF BUSINESS.. THAT SHOULD BE CLEAR EVEN TO YOU from THE START of my post on Bell’s site’ 

Well if your venomous motives wern’t clear before, you certainly made them clear now. 

Thanks, Have a nice day

 Like I wrote elsewhere here too

 I merely have substantiated here how many others now do also like me feel about Bell’s secrecy, under handiness, definite internet contract violations, lies… I support my side of the truth, story too.

I am not alone who complains to Bell often and loud.

and still what surprises me is that Bell wrongfully thought it could get away with al of their bad acts to me and others in the first place..

Me I have the decency to first complain to Bell, to tell them honestly, openly what I am going to post on my site next about them too, at least they were pre-warned by me.
but firstly you did notice that no one from Bell has send me a copy of my last six months billing or proof I had requested any contract changes, new equipment as well, and no one had phoned me back this week from Bell again now too.. now why was that? They had lied and had promised they would.

So it is no wonder so many people today are really rightfully upset at Bell, not just me.

Getting me more upset is the wrong thing for Bell to try to do, I just get louder, do write thousands more letters to news editors, electric officials still too..

They Bell should by now know I too can escalate the matters and not back down.. Bell still does needs to adequately deal with me, reply to me before it gets worse for them and they lose thousands more customers..
Beyond the shadow of the doubt the articles posted here by me showed that Bell ‘so capping reasons were false, unsubstantiated, and so I still rightfully object to Bell capping my net to all too.
I paid Bell for unlisted, unlimited download and they did not supply it to me, Bell did not even have the honestly to originally tell the truth to all and to beforehand say that they were capping it now as well.. Bell they done it first in secret, and were thus wrongfully violating my personal privacy in the process too.
Talking about Bell’s balance reply Bell they have only one reply basically and It is take it or leave it.. I have another.. I rightfully object!

but me I also do fight back and let the whole world know how the snakes in the dark operate in the darkness, and the darkness hates the light to be revealed upon it still too
Bell loses many many customers now too as a result of these exposures of how Bell operates.
Even my neighbors when they read the newspaper can see the positive influence that I have had on the elected officials, news media in regard to Bell’s undeniable bad services, bad acts and my neighbours they all agree with me on this too… I am doing a good thing exposing Bell.

In fact NDP Party did not make a public comment till I asked how come? and they immediately spoke out against Bell now too.
Have a nice day
Paul

Bell should not fight with someone retired like me, for I have plenty of free time , and a desire to pursue it with everyone even more next too, and it will be costly for Bell too.
I told them beforehand in writing the war with Bell will escalate NEXT TOO and it did, it has, they have a lot more to lose

Well at least I (we) now know the reasons why Bell apperantly told him they would terminate his internet service…. can’t say I blame then now.

P: I don’t think you are gaining any allies as your abuse in, and of, this forum continues… Posted 12:02 AM by paul kambulow

I guess Birds of feathers flock together and thus maybe you are just as big a liar as Bell mostly still is for you cannot substantiate that Bell has said they would terminate my internet contract with Bell for in reality their rather bad internet services, for rather Bell has has even lately in writing now said to me that BELL STILL WANTS TO CONTINUE DOING BUSINESS WITH ME. SIGNED SASHA ROLLINS BELL EXECUTIVE CARE.
Thank you for your post anyway for it still gives me my free speech opportunity to write to all more about Big Bad Bell Sympatico, and how Bad Bell’s EXECUTIVE CARE SASHA ROLLINS AND HIS SUPERVISOR were, ARE IN BADLY INVOLVED IN ALL OF THIS abuse of me by BELL AGAIN TOO. Sasha has not denied my claim TO HIM IN WRITING TOO now of him likely being an accomplice Bell falsely by fraud tying to get me and many other BELL CUSTOMER’S of from our unlimited contract as some BELL’S SUBORDINATES had promised in January apparently to Bell’s Board of directors. YES I HAD OFTEN DETAILED BELLS MANY UNDENIABLE WRONG DOINGS WORLD WIDE IN WRITING TO ALL MANY TIMES even as to why they now are so Bad , for even the undeniable witness, public record. If Bell was not in the wrong do you now think they would have let all of my Bell writings drag on this long? of course not.. very revealing ehh?

Did you even now really think that I was writing here now at all to get any kind of support from anyone here, then you are still dreaming, and/or what you think this is some kind of election platform? popularity contest? Note Rather by fairness , by requirement of the law itself, I do have the duty to first present my complaints in writing to Bell Sympatico, to also detail my complaints to them, and also next to give them a chance to rectify them now, even before the matter can even be escalated to any of the courts, consumer affairs ministers, news media next too. This I have done. Thus had you read my posts here you could have noticed that I was just keeping this requirement of the law here too before the matter here too obviously has to be taken to court, by even Bell firstly now if they want to get paid, for they have already in writing admitted to me that I have pre charged them firstly with breach of contract, unethical, unprofessional behavior , harassment , obstruction of justice, fairness too, and many times in writing now, and Bell has, have not even denied it back to me and next they cannot by law, it is too late..
And so next I am rightfully now asking them to pay a compensation to me, and any others for all of this abuse now  too. I even have now specified the rightfully fair compensation demand from me for the whole world to know and read, at 1000 dollars and one year free high speed unlimited internet for their past false misleading adverting, poor services   to me, and for their undeniably not keeping now 3 past contractual agreements with me even those of August 2007, December 2007 too.
 
 Next this year  there were those lying crooks at Bell who to get a commission had definitely committed fraud / forgery and said I had requested from them both an  internet and equipment upgrade on my account, with no substantiation now to prove it too, even  like you,  and  I have reported this to the RCMP and asked them to deal with it too, and Bell has not even denied any of I toot, because Bell Sympatico Billing had confirmed these facts already this month  to me,  and gave me one of their names too, and so  I asked Bell to also prosecute those bad Bell people too still.  Why you think it was accidently that Bell had wrongfully refused to give me an official copy signed too, in writing the last four months Billing statement?  the direct proof of this fraud so I can likely also  present it too the judges formally too? Not so? Dream on..  for the reality bites ehh?
 
And what you do not think that many people who had, have read all these facts already, even  posted on over 30 different internet sites for months now too, posts read by hundreds of thousands of people world wide, that  next Bell has not lost many customers as a result too? Dream on!

Bad persons, and Politicians, bad corporations  tend to be the same world wide, and the solution the same, full Public exposure and full prosecution of the guilty serves every one’s best interest next too still. For if the evil bad person is not exposed, punished they still  have no reasons to stop doing bad things and doing good things instead. They by the public exposure of their own bad acts they next also do find out that a good name was worth more than all the silver and gold they had hoped to acquire. And many next have as a result too.
