Re: Is there a Cdn organisation that represents Internet users?

But they don't advertise that they will, guaranteed, supply 1Mbps. They say "up to" and as yyzlhr stated, this could be any thing above 0mbps "up to" a max of 1mbps.

Actually, the range is not 0-1Mbps since Bell guarantees 680kbps as a minimum.

For Fibe15, Bell's fine print says:

1- Actual speeds will vary depending on the distance between the customer%u2019s modem and switching equipment from Bell: min. 10 Mbps and max. 15 Mbps down speeds; Min. 680 Kbps and max. 10 Mbps up speeds.

Also keep in mind that while IKNS is the most common type of ADSL2+/VDSL2 remotes on Bell's network, it is not the only type and some people do manage to get 1088-1152kbps upload sync.

1. It doesn't matter what some people can sync at, that is irrelevant to this discussion. If they can sync over and above what is promised to them, good for them.

2. It's still "up to" regardless of the minimum they guarantee. The OP is over the 680kbps so this is irrelevant as well. We are talking about the max here and not the min, so this is further diluting the discussion.

No matter how you slice it. Bell does not, unless something has changed, guarantee anything but a maximum of "up to" 1Mbps.

You guys can argue this with me all day if you want but if you don't believe me, try fighting that clause and see how far you get.

I quoted verbatim from Bell's site. There is no such thing as a "guarantee of up to 1Mbps," only a minimum guarantee of 680kbps.

The "up to 10Mbps" upload is not a guarantee and is always subject to technical limitations, distance, etc.
