So I just recently upgraded my internet to Bell. They told me the only plan available in my area was the 5mb down and 1mb up w/15gb cap. I took that with a 120gb extension for a total of $55.95. So I was excited because this was faster than my old bell internet. The technician came, installed the internet and I checked the speed on speedtest.com and it was 1.02Mb down and 0.60 up, the tech told me that the speedtest website is always off by 2-3mb. I reassured him that I always use this site and it always gives the right speed. But he said, if there are any problems call Bell. So after 1 weeks of trying this internet, I was stuck with barely 1mb speeds and very slow web navigating. I couldn't even load a video at 360p without it buffering a million times. It's ridiculous. So I called Bell and explained the situation. They told me to go on bell.ca/speedcheck and it was 0.90mb. The tech (from idk what country) told me that he would get people to fix it. I said Ok Thanks. The next day, I see my internet has gotten even slower so I called Bell again. This time the tech guy told me my lines don't support the speed I am paying for. He said that the Max I could get is 1.5mb down. This is ridiculous. Why didn't Bell tell me that before I bought this internet. Are they allowed to do this and Is there anyway that I could make my internet go faster than 1.5mb. I am really considering going to another company.
