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…
  
 

 “If you were half as good at running a company as you were at lobbying, maybe you’d have a better network,”  Quebecor executive vice-president Luc Lavoie who took a shot at the quality of Bell Canada’s cellphone service: . http://news.aol.ca/article/telecom-summit/258999/
   
 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.

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..

“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!
 
 
 
 “If you were half as good at running a company as you were at lobbying, maybe you’d have a better network,”  Quebecor executive vice-president Luc Lavoie who took a shot at the quality of Bell Canada’s cellphone service: . http://news.aol.ca/article/telecom-summit/258999/
   
 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.

..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

 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
https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/

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

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!

So I ALSO AM NOW ASKING  1000 dollars, and also rightfully increase a demand from 6 months to one year free unlimited high speed internet services from Bell, if they do continue to trouble me on all of this, my rightfully payment for all of the unacceptable aggravations, and their clear failure still to meet the contract agreement, for Bell they ARE GUILTY OF contract breach definitely.

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.

 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.

Reality- Dirty Dirty Bell Sympatico …the most abusive Corporation, firm I have dealt in Canada in my lifetime . Not acceptable, and Comments are not  needed  FOR THERE IS NO WAY TO DISPROVE THE TRUTH..
.

I lived in Canada most of my life, I went to school, church, university, courts, hospitals there now too,  and I also worked only in Canada.  So I am truly Canadian. I am now retired but I do still purse my favorite pass time, writing on subjects like free speech, religion, governments, politics, and crooks such as even the bad RCMP too. I am transparent and fully  honest now too. Even if the bad guys do not like it. I do like to write about Christianity Truth, Freedom, Free speech, regulations, Transparency, Accountability, the government and the laws, Law and order with real justice, and gun control now as well.  

.

I am retired and I have a civil engineering degree, Concordia University , Montreal 1968, and I had worked as a Remax Realtor in Calgary too but in my decades of real life experiences in Canada the still too often unenforced existing laws, regulating societies, governments clearly did not stop too many Realtors, Lawyers, Pastors or even the cops now, Corporations too, Bell Sympatico from cheating, stealing, lying to the customers, others. It does not mean that have to accept it still too.   Garbage in means garbage out.. As a person who watches TV and films too , and often there is much too junk, garbage  In spite of the spin , the spin doctors, in reality Telus, Bell and Roger’s customers will have the same types of difficulties, problem next with the wireless system too after all they are dealing with the same inadequate pretentious firms.. they seems firstly to treat customers, citizens as dirt.. with disrespect clearly.. like the New Conservatives and the Liberals seem to do as well in Canada.. Unacceptable 

.

Bell targets ‘bandwidth hogs’The Gazette (Montreal) – The last few weeks haven’t been kind to Bell Sympatico. The Internet service provider has been attacked from many sides by those angry with its traffic-shaping policy. This whole issue of throttling was brought to light when some customers who have the tools to measure their bandwidth noticed changes in their speeds. http://www.canada.com/montrealgazette/story.html?id=61d653fb-18b7-4c50-82b5-f720  

.

It was in July 2007 when for the first time I measured the speed of my internet services on a Bell recommend site http://www.speakeasy.net/speedtest and when I found out the answer I next contacted Bell and all of the major newspapers editors, major MPs now too and rightfully complained Bell had deceived me, mislead me about the Speeds it was giving me.. Bell had broken my contractual obligations On top of that

“On throttling, the Bell folks deny that such a slowdown exists, and if it does they say it is not from traffic shaping. But customers of Bell Canada have reported that they are experiencing a loss of as much as 90 percent of their normal bandwidth and speed. Devil’s Advocate said,in April 9th, 2008 at 5:50 pm I used to think that regulation was a bad thing. Bell has singlehandedly corrected that thinking, at least where a monopoly is involved!

.

Bell has been such an evil dictator to everyone for so long now. But, somehow, I knew there would come a day when Bell would have to answer for all of it.

.

Between the neutrality issue, the anti-throttling petition, and the anti-competition suits, Bell (and Rogers) has clearly demonstrated there is a blatant need for communications giants to be held accountable.

Canada is far behind in thier internet technology compared with Europe…where they have speeds of 20MB….compared to my current service with sympatico hoovering about 2MB…on a good day. This is not due to P2P applications as it is to poor infrastructure…IMHO.” http://www.bloggernews.net/115043  

.

 The  NDP they along with the news media, CBC, the gazette, etc they have been also pursuing their objection to Bell’s poor services, capping.

.

Bell says it has problems with their phone lines, equipment for years now too. Just do an internet search and you will see the same complaints for years now too from customers. That was one reason they Bell are switching over to wireless and putting their money there now. Yes on my site I had displayed the truth about Sympatico Bell’s connectivity, and the deliberate capping problems as I now know it. This major problem of Bell’s inadequacy is likely Canada wide, and it will costs millions of dollars likely to deal with, All money they Bell do not want to spent apparently to deal with these problems, and it will likely not be solved as they have not been solved in my case. Bell they are spending the money on the new wireless system now as I have said. I have told all people the truth of Bell as to how I as a Bell customer have experienced it the last 15 months, as well as telling it to the news media, government, and it has to be followed up at a much higher level clearly even likely in the Queen’s courts, CRTC, Consumer affairs, federal cabinet.. There is the video cable alternative, others too… Well at least the major news media is exposing Bell now too and the NDP, plus hopefully others too. Check your Bell internet speed at http://www.speakeasy.net/speedtest/  regularly and let us all know what it is really like .. and it should be at least 6300 kbs or more as I had (temporarily) gotten it.. Law and order, Public exposure and prosecution of the major guilty persons serves as the best solution, deterrent to all now still too. What else do you want me to do about it too? I have asked ma Bell to give a credit to all it’s customers who were ripped of too. Even me.

Law and order, Public exposure and prosecution of the major guilty persons serves as the best solution, deterrent to all now still too. Professionals, Politicians

Boy do you still try to over simplify things for others.. and miss the whole big, bad picture. I really suggest you and Bell first do look at my page on Contract law facts in full.

1: Bell for 6 months starting in January 1007 undeniably also had wasted much of my time. Bell had lied to me for 6 months as to the false cause of their slow internet speeds, and Bell blamed it on anything but Bell’s poor, inadequate phone lines, and that was all really unacceptable. Bell here now too was already unacceptably guilty of false and misleading advertising to me about their promised speeds, also about their capacity to deliver their services too , and my whole local community now too. That was the big issue still unresolved adequately by Bell for many others in my community now too. In December 2007 I did not ask Bell for 304 dollars credit I had firstly agreed with Bell for next the 6 months free unlimited download internet next to compensate for the reality that now for many years Bell never firstly supplied me as obligated a high speed internet service because Bell’s EXISTING PHONE LINES COULD NOT HANDLE IT, and Bell had also supplied me still on top of that also a very troubled internet service. Bell next did not honour the spirt, the intent of my agrement with them in December 2007. Now I personally had asked this year for 500 dollars immediate payment rightfully in addition for all the problems Bell next caused me too. I will shortly increase that request to 1000 dollars, and also rightfully increase a demand from 6 months to one year free unlimited high speed internet services from Bell, if they do continue to trouble me on all of this, my rightfully payment for all of the unacceptable aggravations, and their clear failure still to meet the contract agreement, for Bell they ARE GUILTY OF contract breach definitely.

2: Secondly those liars at Bell had lied and had said next in 2008 that I had upgraded my Internet services, but they still cannot prove that ..IRONICALLY THE MENTIONED UPGRADE WAS A MISLEADING TERM, it undeniably WAS A WORSE CONTRACT RATHER FIRSTLY TOO, and why would I be so stupid to do that and to go for 7 megs when Bell firstly could not deliver the reliable, steady continuous 6 megs internet service they had undeniably promised me in July 2007 and next it did even last most of this 2008 year now too.

3: The 55$ for Bell;s unsolicited 2 wire modem. Was this credited to me? How in the world would I know when I cannot access or get a copy of the billing statements for this year from Bell still? and why is that?

4: The Overdraft charges of 75 for Bell’s double-billing twice even in one month were falsely not paid to me yet by Bell. But what else is new Dealing with Bell is clearly a really big trouble for half of the persons too. Bell can only be trusted to lie, and screw things up and Bell does not honour their contract agreement as I have witnessed.Thanks for the interest

Have a nice day

> but as you said you don’t even know if its been credited recently to you.> Aside from being taken for a ride with the line problem for months (which many, including myself can relate to), and them threatening to terminate your services,

>As for your contract law comment, you stated you didn’t accept the new contract, so what contract are you in?

>Why don’t you either just leave Bell and use Quebec Cable for both phone and internet?

>Also Quebec courts are usually very favorable to the small guy. Why not bring up your contract law case there and show the people what can be done? Show the example. It doesn’t cost much to do this.

>Do you think this ‘tech help forum’ can do anything about the contract or the interpretation of the clauses there in? or about Bell falsely changing the contract on their own without your approval knowledge too?

> May I once again suggest that you go to court?

>And Bell…
PLEASE give Paul his Bills over the past 6-months that he asked for. Its bad enough that you (Bell) threatened to end the services of a senior in order to scare him off.

>What’s next?

Speaking, dealing about my new and old contract terms with Bell is ongoing ..

This was a forum to allow Bell first to rectify their inadequacies right on! Tech here had said that my issues were being escalated, looked after too.. so they lie too.. so who is looking after ? what is his name and telephone number?

Public exposure, telling the truth to all how lying, pretentious, inadequate and what Bell is really like, does, is the start of all real justice..

I rightly even here have not agreed with any of Bell’s lies, bad services, bad follow up.. so how anyone can try to say I did is another distorted over simplification.

Nothing has basically changed the last 4 months, or the last 4 weeks on my wrongful and much too many Bell Sympatico problems.
Bell for sure did not yet pay me for the overdraft charges for double-billing me too.

Bell for sure did not yet pay me for the overdraft charges for double-billing me too.

I do not know anything at all really here too for Bell will not talk to me for when I contact them they say that some one from Bell has been appointed from the president’s office to deal with the issues he alone can deal with this, and he too has not talked to me as well next on any of this .. All I still I get useless run around from Bell support, Bell executive care and Bell accounting still on all of this.

My December agreement of free 6 months Internet was credited to me.. But it was illegally transferred from my unlimited account into the new account that I had not authorized, approved, requested, all as usual without my knowledge or permission too.

Bell is an incompetent dictatorship, Unbelievable Even my Bell internet speed was fluctuating, really slow and crappy again this weekend too.

So I wrote today more letters of protest, complaints to Bell and others..

What a bad way for Bell to run their business while the whole world can watch it now too..

Action required, not mere words

 
Supreme Court puts muzzle on sniffer dogs in Canada but real actions by the government still do speak louder than words.
 
OTTAWA —   Supreme Court of Canada rulling Friday   tightened the leash on police powers to use the canines for random sweeps.  “In its first pronouncement on sniffer dogs, the court sided 6-3 with a high-school student from Sarnia, Ont., and a Vancouver man who was caught with cocaine in his luggage at a Calgary bus terminal. “We’re no longer going to be able to show up and randomly search,” said Tom Stamatakis, vice-president of the Canadian Police Association. In both cases, police violated the charter right against unreasonable search and seizure by allowing their dogs to embark on general sniff searches of a school and bus depot without more concrete reasons to suspect drugs were present, the Supreme Court said.” The two rulings are expected to end routine searches in public places like schools and bus and train stations for now. The federal Justice Ministers can enact new legislation to overcome rightfully as soon as possible this shortcoming and they should.  The court decisions, however, were, are silent on airports, where police dogs routinely sniff the luggage of passengers entering the country. “Past Supreme Court rulings have established that privacy rights are lower when weighed against the need to secure the borders, prompting speculation that sniffer dogs will continue to be used at airports in the absence of a specific legal challenge. “It’s fair to say the decisions wouldn’t apply to airports,” predicted Brent Olthuis, a lawyer for the B.C. Civil Liberties Association, noting that neither case involved matters of border security. Quasi-private shopping malls, where private security guards are sometimes called in with sniffer dogs, are another “grey area,” said Stamatakis. The Supreme Court invited lawmakers to step in an spell out specific police powers with sniffer dogs. “Any perceived gap in the present state of the law on police investigative powers arising from the use of the sniffer dogs is a matter better left for Parliament,” wrote Justice Louis LeBel.”
 
Gangs and drugs,  alcohol are are still a big problem on Indian reservations and elsewhere. Why?  all while zero tolerance for gang affiliations or child pornography,  has developed too. We can tackle the supply of drugs by taking on and defeating the criminal gangs who should be treated in the same way as subversive organizations were. ” We all do  have to send a message loud and clear to the gangs – you are not tolerated and If you are caught  you will be charged. In many cases such gangs are linked to organized crime. You need to fully also go after the gang leaders who are making money using the kids and drugs to do it.   The government can now wrest control of violence-plagued reserves  by having zero tolerance for gangs and by banning drugs and alcohol from homes,  with the help of  RCMP and the courts. I can tell you that our government is committed to ensuring that Canada will not be safe haven for those who pose a threat to our national security or the safety of our families and communities. On this, our tolerance level is zero,” Stockwell Day but real actions by the government   still do speak louder than words. 
 
The most successful policing model in modern terms is the “zero tolerance” model used in New York . The strategy was known there as “one broken window” following the observation that where there were broken windows and rubbish in streets there was crime. During the programme’s operation in New York, the number of murders plummeted from 2,262 to 629.”
 
Also “Fear of imprisonment has very little effect on a heroin addict but has a dramatically different impact on a company director who dabbles in cocaine – middle class drug use is helping to fund the violence and we need to adopt a zero tolerance policy towards it”.
    
I have a civil engineering degree, Concordia University , Montreal 1968, and I had worked as a Remax Realtor in Calgary too but in my decades of real life experiences in Canada the existing laws, regulating societies, governments clearly did not stop many Realtors,  lawyers or even now Bell Sympatico from telling lies to the customers, others. Nor did  the RCMP always get their man or the police, courts for that matter too.

I now do realize that I have been told many times now by Bell on the phone, on the net that my internet account matter now has been escalated to the Highest level at Bell, specially Bell executive care services, and that as usual I might have been lied to now again by Bell, lying is what Bell mostly does in my last 18 months of dealing with Bell directly too. So please now today
1: Inform me the specific date that my Unlimited high speed download account had started and was next ended.
2: Give me the name of the person specially from Bell who to get a commission had lied that I had upgraded my Bell unlimited account, and who said that I also had asked to have my modem upgraded as well.
3: Give me also the mailed copies of my last 6 months billings in full as well
4: Do Deal with my many other rightful complaints, demands sent to Bell now too..
And for most of this 2 days respond time should be adequate for Bell..

I had written 300 letters to Bell trying to get simple, straightforward satisfaction, appropriate payment,  answers from them and of course they dishonestly refused to provide any answers.. all they Sasha Rollins,  did eventually is double bill me and next cut of my internet for complaining too much to them.. real perverse people. Nevertheless I posted a full log for about 2 years on the net, too all of the major news editors, major politicians now too  for all to read, and Bell undeniably now did not try to deny it too, as to how crooked they were and how poorly they had actually responded to their false breach of my internet contract too.

 

Basic Contract law

.

  

0bigbusiness1

 

Are you being harassed falsely for payment.. send them this type of  letter..

.

Be advised that I dispute the alleged debt to me and I rather rightfully do suggest you take the matter to court with the guilty party, which is not me. Pursuant to the Collection Agencies Act, R.R.O. 1990, REGULATION 74, you must immediately cease and desist from ALL contact and attempt to contact me, You clearly have made an error in judgment that I do work for you, have to obey you, have to deal with you and you do not, however, have the right to break the laws, threaten or harass me in your attempts to get your due invoice paid. I AM VERY FAMILIAR WITH CONTRACT LAWS, AND CONSUMER RIGHTS . You cannot continue to call me or send your letters, emails to me as I am not the person you should be dealing with for your payment. And the use of hounding harassment, intimidation and fear mongering, bullying’s, tricks, scare tactics, or harassing to try to force anyone to pay the debt is still illegal.. Note harassment is “engaging in vexatious conduct and comment that is known or ought reasonably to be known to be unwelcome.” Human Rights Code, R.S.O. 1990 Canadian laws, such as the Collection Agencies Act, do still have standards and limitations that all collection agents, firms must follow when dealing with anyone . I do not have to deal with you , unless ordered to do so by a court and still there is no guarantee that you will win if you sue me and getting me to court is costly and could take years. In fact you cannot insist on anything! If I do feel I AM being harassed I CAN call and file a complaint with the police, also now contact the internet firm, the telephone company about the harassment. As well, I can complain also to  the Consumer Protection Branch of the Ministry of Consumer Services. I personally do not owe you any money. By Canadian laws, you are supposed to immediately stop calling me, and not contact you at all when I have sent you a letter disputing the debt and I suggest that you take me to court or rather the guilty party which is not me.. Your abuse of the laws may also net you not just bad publicity but a large fine and even loss of your operating license, and give me evidence to contact the Police or to expose you for your false harassment. “The laws are in place for a reason,” “They are to protect citizens, consumers from abusive practices.” In addition all further threats are also illegal and are also banned under the law if you have been told to go to court.. .

.

Court slams Bell TV for ‘reprehensible’ violation of customer’s privacy rights The Federal Court of Canada has awarded a Nova Scotia man $21,000 in damages after a judge ruled Bell TV had violated his privacy rights by checking his credit history without his permission.In a decision released this week, Judge Michael Phelan said Bell TV’s conduct was “reprehensible.”The judgment says that when Rabi Chitrakar of Beechville, N.S., ordered satellite TV service on Dec. 1, 2010, Bell conducted an unauthorized credit check that hurt his credit score. http://www.theglobeandmail.com/report-on-business/court-slams-bell-tv-for-reprehensible-violation-of-customers-privacy-rights/article15212772/

“Canada’s leading telecommunications carrier, BCE Inc and  Kevin Crull, president of Bell Canada’s residential services division, is asking Prime Minister Stephen Harper and his cabinet to reverse a CRTC, which was reaffirmed by regulators on March 3, 2009, ruling requiring the company to offer the same bandwidth speeds to wholesale ISP customers as it does to its own subscribers. The CRTC ruling according to Preexisting regulations already rightfully requires incumbent phone companies (including BCE) to rent network access to smaller internet service providers, so as to foster competition and keep the cost of basic internet service at a reasonable level. This is a very reasonable demand too. Monopolistic  BCE naturally argues that the December decision  will cut into it’s own revenues  nevertheless the Conservative government for the good of all Canadians now, should not listen to the falsely abusive companies like BCE, and not remove these regulatory barriers  ”

 Look I have rightfully hundreds of time to the government, on the net, to the news media already have said that phone companies    undeniably, unacceptable too, are a bad big despotic control freak, monopolistic, immoral, deceptive in reality, practice, and in reality most of the phone companies   do  not honour the normal, decent laws, rules, regulations. Bell Canada included   is a dictator that wants all others to play by it’s own rules. Bell does not know how to respect, keep, honour the terms of it’s contractual obligations to it’s own customers, immoral Bell rather likes to rewrite the contract continuously, one sided so that it is always better solely for Bell. Dream on..

.

Well even if Bully abusive Bell falsely under the guise of profitability, competitiveness, making more  profit or whatever, now still   thinks it is a big, large, established firm, corporation that does not have to play by the established rules, rather it can make it’s own rules. I on behalf of all Canadian, Bell’s customers even now, I am rightfully asking nevertheless that the federal government, prime Minister Stephen Harper and his cabinet exemplary force Bell to respect the laws of decency, norms, the established regulations and to even regulate next  rightfully Bell much more so that bad Bell definitely stops being guilty of it’s undeniable  false misleading advertising practices, unfair and restrictive trade practices for the good of all Canadians now as well , not just for the good of Bell.

.

Regulators need to exist cause we all tend to know big bad corporations tend to cheat, lie, abuse the consumers.

Virgin Mobile Canada 50 percent owned by Bell is no better over Bell

.

I have an engineering degree, Concordia University , Montreal 1968, and I had worked as a ReMax Realtor in Calgary too but in my decades of real life experiences in Canada the existing laws, regulating societies, governments clearly did not stop many Realtors,  lawyers or even now Bell Sympatico from telling lies to the customers, others.  http://anyonecare.wordpress.com/2008/07/13/misapplications-of-the-laws-in-canada/ 

.

Imagine that Bell has been in Business for many years and was, is still too often, wrongfully guilty now clearly of misleading advertisements, fraudulent and unacceptable business practices, not living up to their contractual obligations, as I now have PERSONALLY WITNESSED, EXPERIENCED  and undeniably detailed to even Bell and many others and  many times too now . I had Paid for a high speed unlimited download service but that is not what I got next. I got low internet speed at a high price. With Bell you have to check your actual delivered speeds , “internet download and upload speed test” continually too cause Bell wrongfully seems always  to change it to suit themselves..

Basic Contract law – Basic Contract law – Basic Contract law- Basic Contract law
.
 
Next here is basic legal, valid  understanding, terms of a valid contract, contract  law for all of the managers, president of Bell and all of  Bell employees too. Not just for any customers. Bell had, has definitely detailed, advertised it’s Internet services to all with their  terms, limitations and any customers who enters into mutually agreed upon terms, agreement with their services now forms the  essential mutually legally binding contract..
 .   
1: A contract is a legally binding exchange of promises or agreement between competent two parties, persons of legal age too, that the governmental court, the law of the state or province , or country next will enforce. Contract law is based on the Latin phrase pacta sunt servanda (pacts must be kept).  Anyone can enter into a contract, except minors, certain felons and people of unsound mind.  It’s important to know that not all contracts details even  have to be in writing., for instance, certain agreements can also be made and accepted orally and still be legally enforceable. While the contract agreement doesn’t always have to be in writing, all the other elements of a valid contract still have to be met, included, , fulfilled by law. The bottom line is that  the parties generally come to transactions in good faith, mutually trust and understanding, and not a one way approach, one way demands, one way relationship. All valid  courts, will not enforce, accept as valid  any contract to perform an accepted illegal act. A contract to kill some is invalid clearly too.  A person who pays for bad drugs that aren’t delivered can’t next seek the help of a court or the police in getting the money back. Unbelievable some people still do try to do this too. A valid contract also always requires the mutual parties’ consent, which must be freely made, not forced consent,  and clearly communicated to each other. Consent is not free when obtained through duress, menace, fraud,  lies, undue influence or mistakes, serious errors were presented.  Consent isn’t mutual unless the parties agree on the same thing in the same sense, a clear “meeting of the minds. One party now  presenting only their own  their terms, conditions, without the other parties approval, consent, free will   clearly is still not a valid contract.  In order for an acceptance of an offer to be effective, it must be made while the  sales, specific, fixed service offer is still open. Any  person can changes the conditions of an initial offer in responding to the offer, the old offer is clearly now rejected and the changed conditions constitute a counteroffer and that now becomes part of of any subsequent agreed upon contract. I did that with Bell now too. Once there is next a final, written contract between the parties, the parol evidence rule forbids the introduction in a court proceeding of any previous agreements between the parties on the subject matter of the contract.Only certain contracts aren’t valid unless in writing. Generally, they do deal with real property, certain specific loans, debts, money exceeding a certain amount, or contracts concerning the sale of goods worth more than $500 or one that   include  objects that won’t be performed within one year or within the promisor’s lifetime. Bell now being unable to supply me a promised high speed internet but only a low speed one is still a good example of an invalid contract even if was a written one originally from Bell.
.
2: The Specific parties. The contract must always include,  identify who the agreed upon specific parties are; usually names are sufficient, but sometimes addresses or titles may be used.   Bell and the specific customer. Me in this case.
.
3: The agreed upon object.  The Offer,  the thing, the value, the  services being agreed to is also known as the object or subject  and it itself not only  must be lawful, possible but it must be a definite, fixed, measurable amount specially now even by the laws of Quebec too. For instance Bell promising to deliver a customer a 6 meg download high speed   internet service, where they know they only have a 3 meg line capacity is not legal or legally binding contract. Bell  promising to supply their” best services “or “up to 6 megs services” is not legal as well for it is  is not really an agreed upon  fixed  object, rather the object is not definite and most customers have take that to mean 6 megs anyway. . The object of the contract does have to be very specific and measurable. It is Bell obligations now to to clerk up any ambiguity on the contract as agree upon by the comer now too. So if Bell promising a 6 megs internet services, and Bell by law  next has to deliver 16 megs to meet their promise that is also now part of the contract too. A specified length of time, such as one year does not mean the contract is still valid if Bell has not lived up to the agreed upon previously contract terms.
.
4: The outcome, or the considerations. All contracts require consideration, meaning each party must gain something fixed, tangible. It may also be something that is or isn’t done or given.   When a party agrees to do something (such as I will paint your house) or to not do something (I will not  sell my  house to anyone else for 30 days) they next also must gain something in return toy make this a valid contract, they must receive  agreed upon   fixed payment, a fixed reward. Generally, if I say I’ll paint your house, and you haven’t promised me anything in return, you can’t sue me next for not showing up because I will not receive  any consideration firstly”. Once a contract has been created, it can be determined if there are any issues that call into question of  its validity too.
  . 
5: Termination of contracts.  Breach of contract.  Breach of contract is recognised by the law with applicable penalties now too.  Contracts generally can only be terminated if mutually agree now by both parties as to what the terminations terms included. Parties to a contract may mutually agree to rescind the contract. In that case, the parties may agree on the duties and responsibilities of each party after the rescission. Bell still expecting  me to pay for their internet when they do not keep their promises is a breach of the contract, an invalid demand of me.   Now is the contract  price set, are promised quantities specially  determined, and is the time for performance clearly  stated? There should be enough information contained in the contract  always  that, if needed, the courts likely next  would be able to enforce the contract or determine the appropriate damages. Unless it is mutually agreed upon before any subsequent court demanded decision action,  is taken.  Fraud is the intentional misrepresentation of an important issue of the contract. The presence of fraud in a contractual proceeding makes the contract voidable by the party upon whom the fraud was perpetrated. The contract always still now binds both parties, and not just the customer to the terms, conditions of the contract agreed upon now as well.  Once it is determined that there is a contract, it it  still can, must be determined whether there are any defenses that call into question the validity of the contract.
 .
Bell Changing horses, making changes, additions to the contract in midstream is invalid, a breach, still not allowed, especially without the subsequent, and pre consent, approval of both parties now still too and is a breach of contract rather. That includes Bell capping of my bit torrent downloads too on my unlimited download account
 .
Yes a Bell  contract also may end because of a breach by Bell.  A breach occurs when a person, or a firm  does not fulfill his or her, their  responsibilities as promised in the contract. A breach may be minor or major. A  major breach is one that does affect the subject matter of the contract and does  affect the outcome of the contract.  Bell not having sufficient equipment, capacity in place to meet my high speed internet, is a breach of contract. This is also known as a breach of a material issue. When there has been a breach in a contract, the question of damages is raised. The damages due to a party when there is a contract breach depend on many factors, including: which party breaches, and what damages were incurred. In most cases when an injury results from a contract breach, the injured party receives money damages. Such as I have in Dec  2007 from Bell.  Bell itself has unacceptably cause now in the last 2 years many unacceptable breaches in our contract that I have clearly even in writing not accepted and have objected too and demand restitution of as well rightfully.Go back to a good school firstly Bell if you cannot understand and keep all of this now too.
.
“Despite precedents that show that contracts substantially favoring the party with the greater power often are deemed unconscionable (so unfair as to not be enforceable), lawyers stiff draft them and companies still like them.   Lesson learned: Make deals that are balanced; contracts that distribute risks and responsibilities fairly. Such deals will be honored by courts and your businesses wealth and reputation will benefit over the long term. “ http://troutmanhays.wordpress.com/2008/03/23/one-sided-contracts-are-a-bad-deal-for-all-parties-or-getting-greedy-will-get-ya/      
  . .
PS: “In Real Estate specifically , there it is a requirement at Law that contracts be written down in usually lengthy legal forms to avoid uncertainty, ambiguity and to be binding “.   When I asked Bell to confirm the contract I had with them in writing they next always had refused to do so..
 .
 
When attempting to enforce a contract, an individual or business , even Bell should always consider the effect any dispute will have on any long-term business relationship between all of the parties involved.

It has always confounded me as to why the liars, crooks, deceivers, abusers  too often do still do think they can get away with now, next and forever.
.
FOR WE TEND TO KNOW THAT THEY THE CROOKS, ABUSERS TOO,  NOW ARE NOT ABOUT TO STOP THEIR WRONG DOINGS. RATHER THEY WILL NEXT EVEN ESCALATE, CONTINUE IN THEM. AND THAT IS ANOTHER VALID REASON  THEY DO NEED TO BE EXPOSED, PROSECUTED AND STOPPED. EVEN FOR THE GOOD OF US ALL.
  .
THERE IS A  VERY BASIC COMMON MISCONCEPTION ON HOW TO DEAL WITH ANY PERCEIVED EVEN INJUSTICES, ABUSES, ANYWHERE, IN THE CHURCH AS WELL, BESIDES IMMEDIATELY CALLING THE LOCAL  POLICE..
.
THE NEW TESTAMENT IS CLEAR HOW TO DEAL WITH IT.. COMMUNICATION – AND YOU DON’T FIRST POST IT ALL ON THE NET.
.
First you merely ask the guilty, bad persons personally to repent twice, the first time without a witness, the second time with witnesses THAT you have asked them to repent.. and  detail  proof, substantiation is NOT required.. after you have done that you can next post it openly on the net, tell all the others.
.
Next God also is now fully free to deal with the unrepentant guilty offenders and believe me he will.. I have now been doing for decades too..I SIMPLY SEND AN EMAIL, I PUT IT INTO CLEARLY WRITING, SO THE GUILTY PARTY CANNOT SAY I DID NOT ASK HIM OR HER TO REPENT.
.
WHETHER THEY ACKNOWLEDGE IT OR NOT TO GOD DOES NOT MATTER.

APPROPRIATE  PUBLIC EXPOSURE AND THE APPROPRIATE PROSECUTION OF THE GUILTY SERVES EVERYONE’S BEST INTEREST

FOR A GOOD NAME IS WORTH MUCH MORE THAN ANY AMOUNT OF SILVER OR GOLD AND A TARNISHED ONE IS WORTHLESS.

So why does our pretentious , inadequate Minister of industry, even the past Minister Jim Prentice MP and the useless federal, provincial consumer affairs departments fail over and over again to look after the good interest of the consumers, but look  mainly after Big business good welfare? and his friends ” And not the rest of us? 
  .
YOU NOW ALL DID NOTICE HOW THE LYING, BIG CRYBABY MONOPOLISTIC BCE, BELL OFTEN COMPLAINTS THAT THE COMPETITION IS HURTING IT’S BUSINESS AND YET SOME HOW BELL GROWS RICHER, BIGGER AND HAS NOW EVEN BOUGHT CTV AS WELL.
.
I rightfully really hate business firms like Bell and others that falsely think a contract is a one sided deal that insures they always get paid and falsely forget about the customers’ right as Bell does too often as I have detailed many time now too.. Consumers, customers have legal rights!!!
.
I KNOW FROM DECADES OF FIRSTHAND EXPERIENCES IN MY ENCOUNTERS WITH COPS, LAWYERS, PASTORS, SO CALLED PROFESSIONALS,  OTHERS TOO, that most often now in reality the very same people who do tend to preach to others that we all must not steal, tell lies, drive drunk, that we must respect other person’s rights, all the laws…  those very  same persons who so readily  tend to preach the rules to others, those very same persons  who  expect all of the others to falsely obey  the rules even now  all the while they most often tend to be the firstly the  very same persons to break most of  the rules themselves, they themselves they do not keep them, and they still also  falsely believe they personally are exempt from living the rules cause  they do preach them  to others.
 .
What you had never encountered crooked cops, crooked pastors, crooked lawyers, crooked managers, bad executives, lying no good politicians too?  These same persons  who too  readily judge others, and who demand, want to enforce the rules upon the others, they  cannot see the truth as to who they are firstly, they themselves are now the lying hypocrites.
 .
When most a person tries to enforce any rule upon me I immediate rightfully do next often do ask them who they think they are that they think I now have to respect the  man made rules firstly? What makes them think I have to be now their false slave too? And why do they think that they are any kind of boss over me in these matters?
 .
For  just cause  someone, a lawyer now too even,  some one made up some set of rules it still does  not mean they are all valid, or legitimately  enforceable now too!  I still have even my right of free speech and I still can say what I want, write what I want too.. even about them now too. Not all man made rules, regulations even in writing are rightfully valid still in reality, and just ask any decent judge on the court of the Queen’s judge and he or she can tell you the same thing too.

Courts Turn Against Abusive Contracts
 .
“In the past month, however, two new US court rulings suggest that judges are developing a more sophisticated sense of how corporations conduct online and technology transactions with their customers that Bell Sympatico especially now needs to note.
  .
“The EULAs or terms-of-service agreements are long and legalistic, the deals are offered on a take-it-or-leave-it basis and the terms are often oppressive and one-sided. As a result, the legal hegemony of the EULA is cracking. This is a good development for consumers, who would otherwise be saddled by oppressive terms they have neither the legal sophistication to understand nor the bargaining power to avoid, and for the public interest, which suffers when customers are forced to waive rights that capitalist democracies rely on for innovation and accountability.In Gatton v. T-Mobile (.pdf), the California Court of Appeal struck down a provision in the mobile phone company’s EULA requiring consumers to go through arbitration to challenge termination fees or the practice of selling locked handsets that can’t switch carriers with the customer. The court held that both the way customers entered into the EULA contract, and the arbitration terms of that contract, were unconscionable, and therefore the provision would not be enforced.The reasons the court gave for holding the EULA procedurally unconscionable apply to most EULAs. Even though the arbitration term was fully disclosed to consumers, the contract was one of “adhesion”: an agreement imposed and drafted by the party with superior bargaining strength, which gave the consumer only the opportunity to accept or reject the contract, not to freely negotiate it. As a result, the customer’s unequal bargaining power results in an absence of meaningful choice. The fact that the customers could choose a different carrier may mitigate, but not cure, the procedural unconscionability.Gatton is an important case because it recognizes that every clickwrap, shrink-wrap, browsewrap and box-wrap contract has an element of procedural unconscionability that requires the court to consider whether the challenged term of the contract is overly harsh or one-sided. This opens up the content of contracts to legal supervision, which is great in a situation where the customer hasn’t really been able to bargain, negotiate or otherwise exercise market power.The federal courts seem to be following suit. In Douglas v. U.S. District Court (Talk America) (.pdf), the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled last month that a service provider may not change contract terms by posting those changes on its website without notification to the customer. In this case, the plaintiff sought to invalidate an arbitration provision like the one in Gatton and a provision stating that New York law would apply to the agreement, because the terms were added to the service agreement after the customer had signed up. The court held that the customer could not be bound to new terms, even by continuing to use the service, if he is not given notification that the terms have changed. Modern customers are at a real disadvantage against the bargaining power of technology corporations, some of which have shown no restraint at trying to limit consumer remedies, or even product testing and review.  Douglas show courts are moving away from applying a simplistic theory of contract formation toward developing legal rules that are more attuned with the modern marketplace and balance of power. This is a welcome development, and one which could protect consumer interests and the public interest by developing rules and limitations on the otherwise extremely useful practice of mass-market contracting.”Jennifer Granick is executive director of the Stanford Law School Center for Internet and Society, and teaches the Cyberlaw Clinic. http://www.wired.com/politics/law/commentary/circuitcourt/2007/08/circuitcourt_0801

“David Lazarus of the The Los Angeles Times blasts Verizon today for withholding contract terms from customers until AFTER they have signed up for service – and some of the contract terms are ones that I sure wouldn’t agree to: they have signed up for service – and some of the contract terms are ones that I sure wouldn’t agree to:
.

Verizon not upfront on contract terms – Los Angeles Times

Excerpt:

For years, credit card issuers have gotten away with withholding contracts from customers until they actually have the plastic in their hands — a practice that denies many people a fair chance to look under the hood for onerous terms and conditions.Now it looks like Verizon has adopted the same technique.

What really struck [Torrance, California resident Sandy Lough] was the discovery that to receive the promised discount for her bundled plan, she’d have to go online and agree to a 2,000-word “bundle service agreement” and a 7,000-word terms of service for Internet access.

This was the first time she was being presented with the full contract for her new FiOS setup, and the service had already been installed and activated.

The LA Times article goes on to mention some of the more notable terms of the contract.  The interesting thing is that it would appear that this is not simply an oversight – that perhaps Verizon deliberately withholds contract terms from customers until they’ve already committed to the service:

As for why the full contract is withheld until after FiOS has been installed in a person’s home, [Verizon spokesman Cliff Lee] said only that “this is the way we’ve found that works.”

.

What has happened to make large corporations think they can simply change the deal at their whim, after a customer has already signed on the dotted line, without giving the customer the same right?  “

.

No large corporation, with almost infinite legal resources and billions of dollars behind them, should be able to use their wealth to put real people at a disadvantage, because it would be presumed that only the corporations   had any legal rights.   Bell included now.

.

What started as a simple phone call by me in January 2007 to Bell tech help line to determine why my internet services were so slow and sluggish next had  become a major farce, cover-up on the part of Bell Sympatico. I was next lied to for months as to the real reasons Bell they rather had offered me their poor internet services to me and  to many others in my city for years now too.. and then Bell had even  lied to me some more, had also breached their contractual obligations to me many times too, had allowed me even to be slandered, abused on the Bell customer forums now too.. and why? so  that clearly greedy Bell can continue stay in business to make more money..
.
 
and so who really cares now about the customer’s good welfare in reality? now? What not Bell itself, not the CRTC, not the federal government, not our Prime Minister Stephen Harper, not  the the federal Minister of Consumer Affairs, Jim Prentice..  not  any provincial consumer affairs Minister, but only the citizens, the news media, and the NDP party care about the citizens  good welfare really it seems. Not acceptable for sure too!
.
  
“The ISP suppliers, Canadian corporations  now even such as Bell still are big unacceptable Liars who undeniably too are  clearly  guilty also of misleading, false advertising too now.. (Presently I am with Acanac Inc. http://www.acanac.ca 1-866-281-3538, and do  see their speed test too)
 .
Acanac had initially 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   caps their downloads.. any time they want..  when confronted with this they  Acanac Inc do reply  that  they do not cap their downloads but Bell does.. what an absurd misleading play on words still. Mind you Acanac headquartered in Toronto did also claim  that  they do provide a solution to this Capping software by means of a Putty software but unfortunately this  Acanac Inc approach was. is unreliable, required continual monitoring, and is presently   more problems then what it is worth. But they did, do have another alternative and it is the Tunelier software, and it really  is more reliable offering a download of about between 25 to 250 kbs.. the download speed varies as well and I wonder why???? It is both a Bell and Acanac problem..  but  Acanac’s support services have improved…
.

Bell itself found a an excuse for not performing a specific job assigned to them under the  contract agreement but fooled few people in the process now too. One side breaching a contract is a common, often fact of life, very common, and it happens often in in the Computer business, with Internet Service Providers, in  Real estate and even with new home contractors now as well sadly,  and I  have often witnessed it myself.. and pretentious self regulating boards, governments  are mostly useless too, and it is basically too costly to get a lawyer, it only makes the lawyer’s richer, so now the best way to deal with any breach of contract  is to  expose the bad guys to all, to the news media  and thus really put them out of business.. and I have done that even with major corporations successfully now too.. ”

Top 10 Reasons to Avoid Breaching a Contract
10. YOUR BUSINESS REPUTATION. You could damage your reputation in the business community. 9. YOUR BUSINESS RELATIONSHIPS. You could sever your business relationship with the other party. 8. LAWSUITS. You could be sued. 7. TIME AWAY FROM YOUR BUSINESS. If sued, you could be forced to spend valuable time away from your business in order to respond to discovery requests, attend depositions, and litigate the matter in court. 6. LEGAL FEES. You could incur significant legal fees. 5. SPECIFIC PERFORMANCE. Depending on the nature of the contract, you could be ordered by the court to perform your obligations under the contract. 4. CONTEMPT. If you don’t obey the court’s order, you could be held in contempt, fined, and/or imprisoned. 3. COMPENSATORY AND CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES. You could be forced to pay money damages to the nonbreaching party, in an amount that puts that party in as good a position as it would have been in were it not for the breach. 2. PUNITIVE DAMAGES. You could be ordered to pay punitive damages, which are not limited by the amount of the other party’s losses and can be very significant. 1. YOU LOSE ALL THE WAY AROUND. You could end up spending much more time, money, and mental and physical energy resolving the breach than you would have spent performing your obligations under the contract.” http://smallbusiness.findlaw.com/business-forms-contracts/business-forms-contracts-overview/business-forms-contracts-overview-avoid-breaching.html  ”

“I was surprised this week when a Bell employee from Bell’s accounting department told me on the phone that I should obey, do everything that the Bell president, and  his employee Sasha Rollins tells me to do. Dream on.  Bluntly I replied to the same employee “who the hell does he Sasha Rollins  now think his e really is that I should obey anything, or everything  he says, he firstly is not my master, I do not work for Bell, I am not his employee”.. Bell is getting carried away with their much too many, unenforceable,  exotic, extreme, man made rules now, but they breached my contract still much to often and that itself is really inacceptable still too.  Clearly Bell and their  executive power has falsely now gone to their heads when they even do think they can abuse any others, an ordinary citizen now too. I as a Sympatico customer that does have a contract with Bell, a mutual contract they Bell now also have to respect and that contract now does not make me their slave, subordinate, and them my master, but they are still my legal equals in the matters. They have to respect my contract side now too. Do remind them all of that too at Bell.”

.

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.
