Bell Internet is the formerly known as Sympatico High-Speed Internet. Bell Internet operates over DSL network. This would make it, in theory, better than cable. In Cable, the theory goes you share your bandwidth with your neighbors, though new technology essentially limits that as with cable all traffic is isolated. However, Bell Internet bandwidth and speed is one of the extremes. If you are lucky, you could get the fastest ever with 1.2 GB of download speed. Yet Bell Internet also suffers in relatively large areas of low speeds. In some urban densely populated areas the fastest you can get is a meager 6Mbps download, where Cable can deliver 250 Mbps.
Bell offers services in Ontario and Quebec with some over 3 million customers making it the largest ISP (Internet Service Provider) in Canada. Bell is also a wholesale supplier; meaning mostly all last-mile suppliers such as EBOX and Teksavvy ride on the backbone of Bell's network.
Bell services offer the combination having email accounts, extra protection but by design have a very limited cap, though you could get Unlimited for an extra $10 a month. Making it rather expensive when compared with others. Also, have to consider Bell does not allow to use your own DSL modem but rather have to rent or buy theirs.
The Unlimited usage plans start at $99.95 and are coming with download speeds of 50Mbps or more. Currently, Bell Home Internet has a promotion for the first year of Fibe 50, that is 50Mbps download and 10 Mbps uploads with unlimited usage for $59.95 monthly.
As it is with any Internet provider the speed you experience may be impacted by several factors. One of them is the distance between the DSL modem in your house and the Bell network. The closer, the faster your download, and upload speeds will be.
The last update on Bell Home Internet is the whole home Wi-Fi concept. Which is nothing more than Wi-Fi extenders that work in unison with the Bell Internet Modem and Router. So just put an extender in a power outlet and you'll have Wi-Fi covered in that room. You can do the same by going to your Computer store and buying Wi-Fi range extenders.
In all Bell Home Internet service is coming with good choices and may be the best for you; if what you want is to have the quality of service from a big telco. Technical Support could be an advantage but getting to talk to a person remains something of a challenge. The pricing for Bell Home Internet is sincerely not good enough. It is overpriced. Some manage to get a good promotion, but the problem with those is that you end up tied to a term or a contract or a bundle discount.
