The worst ever

The worst wifi connection I have ever connected in my life. Took a plan of 1 gb downloading speed that cost $130. Very much disappointed. Always a showing interrupted connection and the maximum speed I am getting is 100 mb/second instead of 1 GB. Called the customer service several times and no response from their times. Every time a bunch of excuses only. Not at all recommended.

Had wireless home internet since June at 25mbs just had my antenna replaced with a 5G enabled antenna. Now no internet in the evenings. My neighbours with new antennas have the same problem. Neighbours with old antennas are still okay. Bell informed me they will fix it next year Is this what government subsidies get us

Press 6 to cancel services

Have had Shaw for almost 20 years, with nothing but exceptional service. Made the move to the country from Winnipeg. The home came with AAA security service. They informed me that they had been bought out by Bell and that I had to use Bell services for the system to work. Signed up for Bell phone, internet and the now Bell security. Worst service I have ever had for a week. That was after the terrible two weeks to get the service hooked up. I canceled after one week of incompetence, ignorance, and rudeness trying to resolve poor internet issues. Press 6 when calling Bell and save yourself the headache and hatred.

Review from

I do not like Bell Aliant_s Threats as being one of their users of their internet server, telephone and tv cable getting letters 3yrs into my contract that if I leave for another cable-telephone company I will be charged these fees if I unsubscribe....My mom recieved a letter like this and we have been with Bell Aliant about 8 years. I have been to another cable/TV/telephone company whom says Bell Aliant is doing fraud in sending these letters. My mother was quite upset and had wanted to leave Bell Aliant for East Link, but after recieving that letter thought we had to stay with Bell Aliant.

Promo Plan Speeds

Download: 150 Mbps

Bell Internet is formerly known as Sympatico High-Speed Internet. Bell Internet operates over a 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 1.5 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 300 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 of having email accounts, extra protection, and unlimited usage. Though Bell does offer a basic package one of the most affordable packages from Bell Home Internet, for all accounts still 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.

  • Gigabit Fibe 1.5: 1.5 Gbps Down, 940 Mbps Up, Unlimited @ $129.95 per month
  • Gigabit Fibe: 1 Gbps Down, 750 Mbps Up, Unlimited @ $119.95 per month
  • Fibe 500: 500 Mbps Down, 500 Mbps Up, Unlimited @ $109.95 per month
  • Fibe 150: 150 Mbps Down, 150 Mbps Up, Unlimited @ $99.95 per month
  • Fibe 50: 50 Mbps Down, 50 Mbps Up, Unlimited @ $84.95 per month
  • Fibe: 10 Mbps Down, 1 Mbps Up, 100GB Usage @ $49.95 per month 

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 mesh working in unison with Bell's Internet Modem and the Router appliance. 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 mesh adapters.

GoneVoIP considers Bell Home Internet service presents some good choices and it maybe the best internet service in your area. If what you want to have the quality of service from a big telcom, and putting up with endless billing issues then this may be for you.

Technical Support could be an advantage but getting to talk to a person still remains something of a challenge.

The pricing for Bell Home Internet is sincerely not good. But it may be enough if you catch a promotion. Some users do manage to get a good promotion, but the problem with those "promotions" is that you end up tied to a term or a contract or worse in "a bundle discount".  When the promotion runs out, customers are out of luck. Bill-shock comes with a full-price.

How to file a complaint against a Provider

If you feel you have a valid complaint against your telecom provider, you are not alone.

Home Internet Services with no price hike

Rogers and Bell are at it. Home Internet prices are set to increase, yes, again. According to sources at Rogers and Bell, the price increase is due to investments in their respective networks. Though possible seems odd price hike is almost in unison. Rogers's price hike is effective March 12th and Bell's will be in April. These always seem to fall around the same time for the past few years. Typical Rogers's increase is $4 for plans with a download speed of

Canadians love to communicate. That is not a secret. Today the evolving and changing telecommunications landscape offers many different ways to communicate.
