Just picked up the Bell offer in the mail and some of the wording really stood out to me.

We offer up to 1.5 Gbps.

Enjoy a credit of $55.00 per month* for 1 year.
*Credit earned at end of full billing period.

Prices may increase during subscription AND One time $59.95 installation fee applies with a 2 year agreement

There's also numerous catches in the small print, too many to mention.

I think I'll pass, I only watch the local news on Canadian TV.

The deal was sweeter than what I was currently paying and getting from Rogers. I did call Rogers to give them an opportunity to match (at least price wise) but they couldn't come close. I'll probably have to revisit this all in 2 years but that would be the same for Rogers as well.

So I guess they offered a sweeter deal than Rogers, or was it content and or hardware you found better?

Rogers hardware is a joke, IMO.
My package included 1 GB download speed which for us was a big jump forward than what we were getting from Rogers. I don't have security/alarm from Rogers so I can't comment on that part of it.

Keep in mind that everything runs off of the central home hub (internet, tv and home phone) so they all share the same fibre optic line. The tech did a true speed test which blacked out everything and just tested the connection to the house. That test came back with approx. 1.5 GB download speed. I've done other speed tests where nothing is blacked out (so normal internet, tv and home phone use) and I'm getting around 400mbps each time I tested, which is still a lot better than what I had from Rogers.

They're actually planning 2 communities in Nobleton, letstry.

"Nobleton South and Nobleton North."

https://www.tercot.com/

EDIT: Interesting videos, the "North" starts at Paradise Valley and ends at 15th. The "South" appears to be a continuation of Diana.

Cosimo, please let me know what you're paying and what you're getting from Bell. You can call me, text me or email me if you prefer.

Thank you.

Thumbs up Backed Up Floor Drain

I just learned the hard way not to pour oil down the kitchen drain and not to flush baby wipes.

I went into the basement and found a lot of water and God only knows what else around the drain, it was nasty.

I called a fellow named Robert from Plumbing Authority Inc, he lives on Diana and was here in no time.

He hooked up a camera and showed me how clogged the drain pipe was, unbelievable considering the house is only 8 years old.

Anyway, he bored through the grease and yanked out some baby wipes, showing me the whole thing on camera.

He was in and out in about 90 minutes. Great guy and great service.

Robert (647) 992-7473
