Bell, Telus team up to upgrade networks The Gazette Saturday, October 11 Bell Canada and Telus Communications, two rivals in the wireless business, are teaming up to make their networks faster and more profitable for foreign visitors. The telecom giants will overlay their cellular networks with a technology called high speed packet access (HSPA), the 3G technology used by Rogers Communications. This will allow the firms to offer popular handsets that only work with the GSM mobile standard. Bell and Telus use the incompatible CDMA technology, which is losing favour around the The new overlay, allows for faster data transfers and rich multimedia applications… Both companies will be able to charge roaming fees for data transfers by foreigners, but not for voice calls. This made one analyst wonder why they will invest in the overlay at all. “The number of data roamers is small compared to voice roaming,” said Iain Grant of the Seaboard Group. “It raises the question of why they don’t add voice to profit from the Olympics.” Grant also wondered why Telus would partner with Bell, whose $52-billion buyout may be in jeopardy in the current credit crisis. “They are supposed to be competitors, and when your competitor is weakened, it’s a time to exploit your strength,” he said. http://www.canada.com/montrealgazette/news/business/story.html?id=e4001995-5ad4-4dd9-ba7b-99e8c5980476
This made one analyst wonder why they will invest in the overlay at all? This is just a basic cover up, smokescreen for the real fact that Bell’s own telephone line, DSL services are in terrible shape, cannot handle most peak loads.. it is an undeniably a poor, bad dinosaur system, and is why so many past and present Bell customers have been unhappy and why Bell has been capping their system, modifying users profiles too
Just read all of my posts about bad bad bell..
Big Bad Bell was, is the sole problem.. the bad Bell technician came and gone and he refused to look at the problem.. another drive by shooting by Bell.. and what he wanted to replace another good modem and even charge you Acanac for it too? After the technician left my home, my Acanac system which was working good I next have had putty network software error aborts and Shortly after that it even stopped working period, even the email next.. why? Clearly the Acanac Modems do not do these things, humans persons at Bell do that. And it is called blackmail, sabotage, false diversions.. Bell bad services are always still unacceptable.
The Bell guy, the big complainer, who came here to my home this morning, he started immediately giving me really bad attitude problems, he complained about a wrong address, next he said he was allergic to cats and could not come to my home if I had a cat, I do not have any, and next he was looking for false reasons not to do his work clearly. He next left and did nothing anyway , when I started to ask if he had check the exterior lines, equipment firstly as promised , and when I had also told him I had 9 Bell repairmen in the last year, 9 new modems and the same old Bell periodic problems still too.. for me it was a Bell profiling problem, they keep on making falsely changes on my speed profiles under the guise of Bell DSL improvements.
Tell Bell stop lying to me.. and to fix my problems now too
Look at the unacceptable lies Bell tells me from one day to another.. for the day before on the Phone they Bell told me admittedly it was a Bell equipment problem that need to be dealt with and next day by phone they concluded it was the Acanac modem without even seeing firsthand the modem even, too.. the technicians from Bell are so lazy they will wrongfully do, say anything to stop from doing the required work. Do send them Bell a copy of my rightful complaints now as well. Thank you
So because of my much bad publicity openly on the net about Bell, Sypmatico has next tried to hide all of this under an new image of Bell.ca but changing merely the name does not change the reality of the same old bad people, bad supervisors, employees very definately doing the same bad things, even abusing the customers, and still delivering a lousy ISP service too.
My being still now unable to connect properly to the internet from my home.. meaning web page accessibility problems Do note all of this as well..
