Re: Bell: We don't provide same service to Teksavvy customers

Couldn't Bell add an additional upload channel from the box to my home? That sounds cheap enough (cheaper than adding a new box or paying for an extensive upgrade).

You could probably run your own transatlantic fibre-optic cable from your front door to Europe faster and cheaper than Bell could give you an upgrade.

I have two co-workers abroad. One is in Bulgaria, another in Serbia. They have 64Mbps and 32Mbps connections, respectively, for less than $30/month.

Serbia!!! Come on people! Canada is such a third-world country when it comes to internet.

Duh, yes.

And I'll bet that on an income adjusted & "delivered bitrate"** basis that their service is a lot cheaper too.

** delivered bitrate = the actual measured bitrate available at the user premises, NOT the advertised speed.

Just go a bit south (Romania) and for $30 you'll get internet-50Mbps, cable TV with 10 HD channels and home phone-VOIP. Now that's a hot deal!
