My speed with Rogers changes the second Rogers rep presses a button on their system. Surprised it takes minutes to hours in Bell's case.

Well I just tried to inquire about getting tv, internet and phone in my area but no go as there was no wired internet available and even nearby all they offer is 5 Mbps speeds. I guess I am truly in cable internet/tv country now in the middle of Sarnia. Can other people share what they can get out in Bright's Grove (Sarnia) and other areas of Sarnia ? I checked for services for Elizabeth St. and Wellington near between Indian and Murphy and it isn't good.

Be careful when switching to the 50/10 plan with FibeTV. Turns out I can't have both. They switched me when I called in but it turned out it was not actually available as I found out when a bell employee on here tried to switch my profile.

You're probably on a OSLAM stinger... which highest profil is 55/11... so you'll lose some speed if you watch TV. But for people on 7330 Slam, they don't have problems.

They ended up setting my profile overall to 45 so that I have 25 guaranteed for the internet even if I have 3 HD streams going. Just found it a bit annoying that they didn't know the 50 plan wasn't available when I called in.

Well the 50/10 is available for internet... but adding TV to a 50/10 internet won't work for OSLAM. It will work only for 7330.

I understand that but they should've seen I have TV too on my account when I called in.

But if you would of been on a 7330 SLAM, it would of work.

They also sell 15/10 to people who can't even get VDSL2... The system doesn't always know these things... for some reason.

Oh yes it should, nobody is telling that it shouldn't. Maybe they will fix it, maybe they won't... probably won't.

I hope the Bell tech checked if there was a 7330 in your area. I know my JWI has a OSLAM and a 7330.

Hmm I didn't know some areas could have both. How would I be able to find out if a 7330 is available?

Bellmtl said it's not true, they are keeping symmetrical speeds on fiber

Not true. FTTH speeds are not changing

After speaking with the rep last night they "upgraded" me to the unlimited plan for 10$/month. My speed won't change so I'm staying with FIBE 50/50 (FTTH) but after speaking with the rep, it is not a "true" unlimited plan. From what I understood, they upgraded my limit from 250GB a month to 1000 GB a month. It is still good but if someone goes over 1TB of download/upload in a month, I'd be curious to know what would happen.

^ Also not true. There's no cap. It's unlimited.

I called in and replaced the 15/10 I had with FibeTV for 25/10 Unlimited for FibeTV. Unfortunately it seems it won't get changed until the 31st for some reason. Either way, happy to have the speed increase and unlimited usage now.

I can't say it is not true as the rep told me he was adjusting my cap to 1000GB. That being said 1000GB may mean unlimited in Bell's system. Just telling you what the rep told me.

Here is what my usage tracker looks like after I upgraded to unlimited.

Why are you paying for both unlimited and a 125GB addon?

Before I got unlimited, Bell gave me 125GB extra at no charge so when I got unlimited I guess since I am not paying anything for it they left it there. I did confirmed with the rep that my bill will be $10 extra with the unlimited.
