Re: Called Bell to cancel, got unlimited 25down/25up no contract

What I find troubling about this is the POTENTIAL that Bell *knows* the CRTC decision now, and the indies don't -- if this is indeed the case.

Any company that's making profit in the millions needs to know what their staff is doing. Bell is no exception.

If the decision is going to be released in February, that probably means it has been finished for a number of weeks, if not months.

There's apparently a big delay between completing the decision and getting it translated to be released in both official languages simultaneously. That process isn't under CRTC control.

There could be leaks in that part of the process, or Bell simply knows their case was utter nonsense, and are preparing for what they THINK will happen.

Regardless, Bell won an extra year of marketplace uncertainty while still in a dominant position. The CRTC has once again been played by Bell.

There should be retroactive rate cuts for the indies when shit like this happens.

It would help some, but a workable, stable regulatory environment would be better.

Hasn't this always been the case ?

Bell knows their costs.

And considering that this time around, the CRTC looked quite closely at numbers, and spoke to incumbents about them, they know which way the numbers will be going, but probably not the exact numbers themselves.
