Acanac

What ever you do not get Acanac for their support services is really now poor..  and they will try to blame you or all others for it.. never themselves

for if you ask them to do something or you do have any serious problem in my many personal expereinces they firstly all do try pass the buck, and they cannot listen too well, so they rather do ask you to send them an email that they also  cannot read or adequately deal with or reply to now as well, and ludicrously when they do get your email they even next again will ask you to call them again by phone cause they it seems do not want a written record of the complaint or they are again clearly running in circles merely passing the buck..

and their managers refuse to talk to you directly cause you as a paid customer do try rightfully to make a complaint about their very poor services.

On top of that they must be having so many support services troubles that you even have to wait for hours to try to talk with their DSL support departments too..

Now they too do clearly now do need better managers and better employees.. Canada’s main hiring problems is that too often the general manager tends to hire friends or friends of friends as subordinate managers.. all meaning next that you cannot discipline or manage any of them, or fire them.. so the subordinate employees also tend to be aware of it too.. they also next tend to do the minimum amount of work that they can get away with and not be blamed for.. so the firm’s or department whole productivity is next at an all time low and eventually all of\these now bad firms, departments next do pay for it, their reputation goes down, even their stock prices go down, and their profitability as well, etc. Firing now next\ the general manager does shake up the pecking order and it tends to get an increase of the profitability, productivity

Computer users have become a cash cow for many

 
   

It seems everyone is trying to make a big profit from the computer users, including computer manufacturers, computer, magazines  telecommunication companies, Internet services providers, even software sellers and pornographers,  hackers too.
 
In Canada  Bell’s Consumer complaints , abuses and their increase was so predictable because Canada’s too often major telecommunications companies, the 3 Stooges, they  have not changed nor their abusive behaviors Bell included now. Bell (TSX:BCE), Telus (TSX:T) and Rogers (TSX:RCI.B) “lead the ladder in terms of complaints”. In total 3,747 complaints were  received in the 2009-2010 monitoring period, up from those in 2008-2009.  http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/12/15/about-time-big-3-put-into-their-place-bell-rogers-and-telus/
 
After going through what seems to have been several years without getting hit with a serious virus, this weekend I got nailed with a killer. It was one of those extremely annoying trojan viruses that digs it’s way into your system and causing some serious damage along the way. The fun worst part about this virus was how it would instantly activate itself upon windows starting up, then to make matters worse, it would instantly close out any applications you tried to open and wiped out internet access all together.  The main goal of the virus was to not only infect your computer, but also to make money in the process. On the flip side, there are tons of web sites cashing in on anti virus software without being bastards and having to infect computers with a virus to make their living. Web sites dedicated to providing information on how to remove these viruses are also cashing in. 
 
ORGANISED crime online has become rife over the last few years with more and more computer and Internet users falling victim to phishing and different forms of viruses and spyware.   we are now entering a new era where viruses are being deliberately developed and spread for potential profit – huge profit. Antivirus software is becoming big business, not only because new viruses are constantly being created or ‘improved’ that can bypass existing antivirus software, but also because people are living in fear of getting a nasty infection and losing all their valuable data. Many people are also even  scammed into purchasing antivirus or anti-spyware software by being made to believe that their pc is infected. There are many ways that any computer connected to the Internet can become infected or accessed by viruses and spyware. http://witnessthis.wordpress.com/2010/11/02/viruses-and-why-they%e2%80%99re-so-profitable/  
 

The average, Illiterate computer users are taking a great risk  

 
 
Which reminds me my Bell internet services is still disastrous, unreliable, I have connectivity problems even as of lately periodically when I have no downloads even, I have email sending problems as well.. and what Bell does not know how to fix this still and it wants more money? dream on..
 

It would be a gross understatement to say that the Microsoft operating systems are trouble free. for  we all often experience DVD problems, internet explorer problems, etc and MS helps does not come that freely, for even their great effective free    software solution have MS bias as well .

 (Heb 10:31 KJV)  It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

It always still amazes me how many pastors lie and say they are doing God’s work and yet they never quote the Bible to anyone, so who are they actually fooling: God, the Bible or mere self, men in reality? When I first examine a pastor I first go to his study and see what books he uses.. over the Bible.. so I can know why he is failing. The Holy Spirit himself in detail too will lead and guide you in all truth.. if you actually are led by him now.
 
It is undeniable fact that these days 70 percent of all pastors are bad, so I have helped to fire many evangelical pastors, founding church pastors as well, I helped to closed two evangelical churches as well. Most pastors still are are sex maniacs , counsel divorce, alcoholics falsely still too.
 
Public exposure and prosecuting of the guilty serves everyone’s best interest.
 
I am no ostrich and I also do  follow what Apostle Paul did, I first had wrote letters to the churches,  members, adherents about their uancceptable sins.. I talk to people I love and rightfully even rebuke them before all as well.
 
Genuine Prophets sill point fingers today and still do ask people to repent.
 
(Rev 2:5 KJV)  Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.
 
(Rev 2:16 KJV)  Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth.
 
(Rev 2:21 KJV)  And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not.
 
(Rev 2:22 KJV)  Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.
 
(Rev 3:3 KJV)  Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.
 
(Rev 3:19 KJV)  As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
 
(1 Tim 5:20 KJV)  Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear.
 
(1 Tim 5:21 KJV)  I charge thee before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, and the elect angels, that thou observe these things without preferring one before another, doing nothing by partiality.
(3 John 1:2 KJV)  Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.
 
(3 John 1:3 KJV)  For I rejoiced greatly, when the brethren came and testified of the truth that is in thee, even as thou walkest in the truth.
 
(3 John 1:4 KJV)  I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.
 
God bless you
 

Straight-from-the-horse’s-mouth

Like I have too often still said
 
Vigilance, continual Vigilance is need in all areas of life it seems cause otherwise our rights are abused, overlooked, falsely censored even. Such as the ISP, Internet service providers  obligations to their customers, contractual agreements, On top of that there is no question that many major Internet corporations profit have also  been built on the back of free labor, the free contributors. Which they tend to no longer appreciated and restrict falsely access to many of these sites now instead. Ever discover that while the main search engines will readily give you a list of sites, that you may next have difficulties accessing many of these sites next ands why is that? The access and the speed aren’t too bad but still only during  certain, limited  portions of day  or night.  Such internet  traffic management is really really unacceptable. For if they were to invest in newer, better infrastructure to raise capacity, they would even get more customers. It’s much, much cheaper to throttle torrent traffic or do nothing than it is to expand the overused, obsolete infrastructure.  If even Microsoft,  corporations, companies & governments are distributing more and more  content through the internet then all of the ISPs have to keep up to date and increase their capacity in response. Other countries are embracing this, and have brighter economic futures & control, profitability, consumer satisfactions  as well.
 

72 percent of businesses say they would change ISP if their Internet connection became unreliable. The independent research carried out by Shape the Future Limited on behalf of Zen Internet, the award winning ISP, surveyed over a 1,000 Small Medium Enterprises (SMEs) between September and October. 

An important decisive factor for SMEs is the level of support provided by ISPs: 85 percent stated that the level of support was the most important criteria when choosing an ISP while the highest number of respondents, 80 per cent, considers UK based support to be very important. Some ISP providers have been criticised for taking telephone support overseas and cutting staffing costs.

Just over half of those asked, 55 per cent were happy with their current supplier and were unlikely to change, 45 percent are unhappy. and 68 per cent had not changed ISP in the last year but   13 per cent are considering changing ISP at present.  When they do, it’s mainly when there are issues with reliability, quality of service, cost or for higher speeds. It was found that 72 per cent of SMEs said they would change provider because of unreliable connection, but note only 40 per cent would change to save money.

98 per cent of SMEs consider reliable Internet access to be critical to the needs of their business. 71 per cent of SMEs thought it was important that their ISP was business orientated, as 80 per cent use the Web to locate suppliers and 76 per cent use it for purchasing activities.

Deceptive, unfair, restrictive Business trade practices by the ISP’s.
 
“A lawsuit filed against Apple and AT&T on November 4, 2008 charging misrepresentation of the 3G speed of the iPhone on AT&T’s network, has also been amended with an additional charge. The new charge claims the iPhone develops hairline cracks in the housing. Filed in the United States District Court, Eastern District of New York, Avi Koschitzki claims in the amended charge that hairline cracks in the casing of the iPhone constitute unfair practices under the New York Deceptive Practices Act. Koschitzki said the cracks appear around the camera and near the volume button on the side of the iPhone.
 
The initial lawsuit claims that Apple and AT&T misrepresented the speed of the iPhone on AT&T’s 3G network. The suit claims insufficient infrastructure of the network and the fact that so many phones have been sold that it can’t handle the volume of phones trying to use it. “Due to the overloaded 3G network, it is quite common for iPhone users to only be on the 3G network for a few minutes before being bumped to the slower EDGE network despite being in geographical areas allegedly rich with 3G network coverage,” reads the lawsuit.
 
Now we all can know that driving a sports car on an empty road produces a different sped from that when driving on the same road during peak traffic hours.
 
Now this Mis-advertisement of the actual speeds attained  also reflects the common  problem we tend to  have also in Canada with the false, misleading advertising, trade practices by Bell, Rogers, Videotron in regard to the speeds of their iphone and DSL, ADSL, cable internet services. These Communication, ISP firms amongst others are known to inflate, advertise substantially higher speeds than the consumer will actual get next get on the average, and the  next related internet congestion cause web connectivity problems, and also reductions of the downloads speeds too..
 
Now what about having now the much need real consumer protections for the citizens of Canada here as well from the greedy, lying, no good corporations?
 

The lawsuit is seeking a jury trial where they are asking for statutory, compensatory and punitive damages.” 

Time for just more of our complaining, talking  over and over again is done, rather real actions is required now even by the governments to protect the consumers.

PS:The latest version of Java (Java 6 update 10) is a seriously flawed version of Java which causes numerous display and performance problems, some of which you may encounter

The only recommended way to resolve this problem is to temporarily revert to Java 6 update 7 until Sun Microsystems fix their problems. To do so you will need to uninstall Java 6 update 10 and then install update 7.

Please note that in the past older versions of Sun JAVA have been full of serious security flaws and I strongly recommend UNINSTALLING ALL PRIOR versions of SunJava thru add/Remove as well as OLD install folders PRIOR to this updated version – JUST AS A PRECAUTION –

UNLESS all the older versions are removed THERE STILL REMAINS THIS RISK.  The update doesn’t uninstall any old versions. You HAVE to go to the Control Panel and look in Add/remove programs and uninstall each one …keeping the latest, of course.

To uninstall update 10, open ‘Add/Remove Programs‘ in Control Panel (in Windows Vista this is called ‘Programs and Features‘) and remove the ‘Java(TM) 6 update 10‘ item.

Then install Update 7 from the links below.

 I too have discovered often that while I personally do also have many blogs, internet sites, next my own accessibility to these sites is it seems unnecessary  restricted, difficult, and one of the main valid explanations as many of us already do know is the false periodic unacceptable capping, throttling, access restrictions,   by the ISP, internet Service Suppliers themselves. I too now do  have no sympathy for almost any of  ISPs. They firstly do still to often lie lie to get customers and next when they get them they cannot honor, keep their original promises, promised speeds and capacities  It’s one thing to gouge us all with continual increase rates but not to keep also same promised original service. No, no, no. ISPs are not only raising their rates but still also decreasing their services and the quality of it as well. 

Canadian groups oppose ISP traffic throttling ISPs ask the CRTC to stop Bell doing it

 

Bad Report urges Ottawa to keep ISP traffic throttling in place..
 
Ottawa shouldn’t give in to demands that Internet providers treat all traffic the same, says a Canadian telecommunications consultancy,  Montreal-based SeaBoard Group in a report released Thursday, another salvo in the war on net neutrality.   The report comes out as the industry awaits the release of a ruling by the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) on a complaint from a group of Internet service providers against Bell Canada’s traffic-shaping efforts. A decision had been expected at the end of September. The CRTC regulates cable and telephones, and therefore could have a say over the Internet. However, it decided in 1999 to be hands-off on new media. In March, Bell began throttling Internet traffic to subscribers and ISP resellers of its DSL service during peak hours, claiming a minority of customers are consuming large amounts of bandwidth to the detriment of the rest. The Canadian Association of Internet Providers quickly demanded the CRTC order Bell to stop slowing traffic, saying the move damages subscribers wanting fast speeds. But Bell argued managing bandwidth makes service equal for all. Meanwhile, the commission is in the middle of what it calls a New Media Project Initiative and re-examining its decision to keep its hands off new media. That review may touch on net neutrality. In the U.S., Comcast throttled BitTorrent traffic until earlier this year, when the Federal Communications Commission ordered it to stop unless it could prove the effort is necessary. Comcast then came up with a new strategy: Impose a download cap of 250Gb a month to each subscriber. SeaBoard says the first public case relating to the Net neutrality debate in France came in 2007 when the French ISP Neuf Cegetel was accused by the videosharing site Dailymotion of throttling access. Neuf Cegetel refuted the claims citing technical difficulties and the subject was eventually dropped.

The SeaBoard Group is unqualified to make recommendations on..  The SeaBoard Group is by no means qualified to comment on this issue. They are a consulting firm whose clients are technology corporations including communication carriers, so they have a financial stake in this and it’s no surprise then that their report sides with the corporate position. Also, the “group” consists of three analysts: 2 economists and 1 marketing/commerce person. So who among them has an understanding of technical aspects of controlling net congestion? Answer: none of them. The report is really just an opinion piece on how market forces always know what’s best (which is what economists always say). It does not investigate Bell’s claim that traffic shaping using deep packet inspection and throttling is the only means to manage congestion (a claim which is entirely false as the Comcast example proves). It does not investigate how deep packet inspection impacts consumer privacy. And it only says that ISPs should be careful not to give themselves an advantage by throttling competitor traffic (which obviously they will as the Telstra example proves). ISPs do have to manage their networks to prevent congestion, but their is absolutely no need for them to employ traffic shaping to do so (upper limits on bandwidth and monthly caps are fair and already in use). They just want to use traffic shaping because it gives them a lot power and they use the excuse of network congestion to justify it. But no one should fall for it, the FCC didn’t. And the SeaBoard group has no credibility on this issue.

“Comcast then came up with a new strategy: Impose a download cap of 250 Gb a month to each subscriber. Some observers think most Canadian providers will soon move to such caps, commonly seen on wireless handsets.” Caps already exist and I could only wish they were so high. Rogers has a cap of 60 GB a month for high speed express internet. CRTC wants to run the Internet like they do television and Radio. Which means Canadians will continue to get screwed out of good content in an effort to protect something that is not very good anyways… Canadian media content.

why should we pay for internet service we are not receiving?..  put a meter on that throttle then—–the more we are deprived of receiving full service——the less we should have to pay for it i do not like paying for something i am not getting——its called fraud.
Written by: yahn goodey, 
Selected throttling is illegal censorship  Customers are already throttled based on their package. If a customer is paying for a 10Mbit connection, why should their speed be restricted to 5Mbit for certain types of traffic? If they are paying for 10Mbit, they should get 10Mbit. Regardless of how the ISPs are trying to spin this, it all boils down to the fact that they want to be able to make corporate sanctioned traffic be fast, and everything else be slow. This means that big corporations websites will be fast (i.e. Disney, CNN, Google) and small business websites will be slow.”

Bell Canada sued by independent dealers over reduced commissions

MONTREAL — Bell Canada’s (TSX:BCE) independent retail outlets are suing Canada’s largest telecommunications company for $200 million in an interfamily squabble over reduced commissions.

The Independent Communications Dealer Association of Canada, claiming to represent four-fifths of Bell’s independently operated stores, said Tuesday it has begun litigation in Ontario and Quebec, alleging Bell has broken its contract in several ways.

The association, saying it represents 172 store locations under the Bell, Bell World, Bell Mobility, Espace Bell and Bell Mobilite banners, cites “a downward spiral in our relationship that has escalated under Bell’s current management over the last three years.”

Association president Doris Ronca, who owns two Bell World stores in Montreal, said the group has been trying to negotiate with Bell in good faith to resolve the various problems it faces.

“Unfortunately we’ve reached a dead end and have no other choice but to go to the courts,” she said in an interview.

The dealers have knocked heads with Bell before, and purused a $135 million lawsuit in 2006 against the phone giant over a failed move by the dealers to turn their network into an income trust.

They had hoped to combine their stores in one business and float it on the stock market, but the phone company vetoed the plan.

During much of 2005, income trusts were a hot Bay Street strategy that generated tax advantages for companies that turned themselves into trusts. In late 2006, the Conservative government imposed a tax on new trusts beginning in 2011 that curbed the sector.

At the time, Bell said it would vigorously defend itself in the lawsuit.

Ronca accused Bell of years of mismanagement that has resulted in losing customer and investor brand loyalty and falling from first to third place in the wireless marketplace.

Bell is now punishing its own exclusive dealer channel by not honouring agreements and systematically destroying the competitiveness, reputations and the value of businesses that have been built over 20 years, said Ronca.

“This didn’t just start yesterday. It’s been a problem for several years now.”

The litigation claims Bell has ignored a commitment in March to leave dealers’ fees and commissions untouched until mid-2009.

It alleges that Bell has eliminated until December the payment of commissions for customers that replace handsets and renew contracts. These commissions account for up to 70 per cent of an outlet’s revenues.

It also says commissions for new product sales have been cut by between 10 per cent and 20 per cent.

The impact will be the layoff of more than 300 employees at stores in Quebec and Ontario as they lose $17.5 million in commissions until December, Ronca said.

The association says Bell is providing more lucrative incentives to non-exclusive retailers such as Wireless Wave, Best Buy and Future Shop.

And it says Bell’s direct marketing is undercutting the dealer chain.

The lawsuits claim over $200 million in damages, demand that Bell honour its current agreements, and seek the right to sell products from competitors like Telus, Rogers and new entrants in the mobile-phone business.

Bell Canada couldn’t be immediately reached for comment, but is expected to respond to the lawsuit later Tuesday.

The company’s parent BCE Inc. (TSX:BCE) is in the final stages of completing its $52 billion takeover by an investment group led by the Ontario Teachers Pension Plan Board and its U.S. partners.

Bell Canada Inc.’s independent retailers are suing the company for years of “abusive, arbitrary” business practices that include changing their contracted commissions. The Independent Communications Dealer Association of Canada, which represents 172, or 80 per cent, of Bell’s independent stores, announced on Tuesday it had filed suit against the company for three years of “not honouring agreements and systematically destroying our competitiveness, reputations and the value of our businesses that we have built, some of us for over 20 years,” the group said in a statement. The retailers seek more than $200 million in damages against the company as well as a reversal of all competitive measures listed in its suit, and a commitment to honour its current contract. “Once we sign a contract, we expect that contract to be honoured, but instead, year over year, they make changes to it without our agreement,” said CDAC vice-president Rick Umbrio. “All we’re asking is for Bell to honour their commitments and agreements. We want to be able to negotiate with Bell, put something in writing and they honour it, not change it on the fly.” The final straw in the “downward spiral” of their relationship, Umbrio said, came recently when Bell decided to cut commissions dealers earn on upgrading customers to new phones. The retailers had signed a contract with Bell in March that would leave their commissions untouched until June, 2009.  http://www.cbc.ca/consumer/story/2008/10/21/tech-bell.html

 and I already have even been saying how bad  Bell is now in regard to keeping contractual agreements even for a whole year now too on the net too.
