Rogers could technically blow Bell out of the water with upload speed but it's clear that they fail at running their network and let Bell get eons ahead of them.

Sorry, to which Bell network are you referring?

The only Bell network, the one that serves all of Ontario and Quebec.

I thought you might be differentiating between Bell's POTS DSL service and their fibre service. When did their network become better than Rogers'?

Bell offers 7 mbit upload speeds, shortly being changed to 10mbit.
This has allowed them to claim that they offers the fastest internet in canada. Rogers no longer has the rights to claim this.

Thanks, OP. My 8-year old was freaking out about Treehouse not showing up any more. 65 got moved to 19.

Don't forget people channel lineups are different areas too. I have had a bunch of service calls lately for "older" people wanting to get vision tv on analog and they were told to get adaptors (this' in toronto).

This has allowed them to claim that they offers the fastest internet in canada. Rogers no longer has the rights to claim this.

Rogers still has the fastest download speeds in the majority of markets where it competes with Bell. Also, upload speeds are slowly being upgraded on Rogers as well. So neither Bell or Rogers can universally claim they offer the fastest internet.
