Bell says I qualify for 15/10, but I don't, because I only have ADSL2+ facilities available....its just Bell marketing tactics at work.
That's not marketing tactics.That's outright misleading information
to induce you to make a purchase you wouldn't otherwise make.
It's bloody bullshit, and there's no way in hell they should be allowed to do that. If we didn't have such a corrupt regulator they wouldn't.
I was trying to remain neutral lol, of course its misleading information...I agree with you 100%....
I too was at first viewing this from a distance, as I only discovered what Bell was saying/doing AFTER seeing TSI's new site and having ITS lookup fail on my location.
I then had checked what Bell's lookup said and it told me 15/10, which I know full well is not supported in our community when even 15/1 is not happening yet in a neighbouring city of SIX times our population. - WE were lucky to get our 16/1 upgrades first.
So ya figure that Bell is deliberately F###ing with the public ?
MY first reaction was that possibly it was an error on a brand new site and was about to be fixed, but I guess not, if other DSLR regulars see it as an outright lie
How long HAS it been anyway, since Bell's site was changed to how it is today ?
IIRC, Bell's site - in general listings - only showed 15/10 and no more 15/1 - even BEFORE
I did my lookup !
Having said all of that, it would be very interesting
to see statistics on what percentage of Bell lines are reported by their new website lookup as supporting this new 15/10 tier, and compare it to how many of those particular lines actually DO.
Less than HALF ?
Remember that they dropped 2 other tiers (16/1, and 10/1 or 12/1) to introduce 15/10.
Simplified ? - Yes, on the surface at least.
Honest ? - NOT A CHANCE !
And do they have any fine print about the VDSL modem ? - wait, that does not matter to Bell retail as they waive charging for that still, right ?
This sounds like one for the CBC Marketplace
show, or other such watchdogs.
Has Michael Geist or Peter Nowak weighed in on this blatant misrepresentation
of the facts ?
Or Karl ?
