how ironic that they're always showing that ad of the guy with the bell service who misses the hockey game
I know, it's pretty shady in my opinion because I haven't seen this type of issue with satellite since the hay days of satellite dishes.
It's like when the DSL companies like Bell throttle your lines to 30kb/s circumventing the bandwidth they say they're giving you using the fine print, but then make a commercial saying how **** cable is because all the people in your area suck up all the bandwidth. Well if you're forcing people to 30kb/s, you're basically saying, we charge you 30$ a month for 5mbit internet, and it only goes 5mbit when you're at your 9-5 job, all other times it's 30kb/s, but hey, during peek hours we don't have bandwidth issues, we just limit everybody because we're selling bandwidth to people we don't even have. That's much better than having your 10mbit drop down to 3mbit for a couple hours, it's such an ideal solution Bell has come up with (throttling) that they make a commercial to tell you how bad videotron is during peek hours
These companies are so shady they just don't care. They'll lie and deceive you in any way just to get your $ and stick it in your ass. The second you sign that 3 year contract they basically think they have you by the balls. (They don't by the way, but if you're the "little guy" then maybe.)
It's unreal how these companies will basically lie straight to your face in order to get you to buy their services. I doubt you'll catch a Bell rep talking about throttling in fact whenever I've brought it up to one of their reps for our business services in the past they've flat out denied it, meanwhile every day at 4pm exactly the thing dropped to 30kb/s, this is how Bell treats their business customers. Brilliant. (They've already lost out on probably 10-20k easy over the last year or two, we've switched everything to videotron, over the last 5 years we've probably cost Bell at least a couple hundred grand convincing clients to drop their ****** services, I know for them a couple hundred grand over 5 years is chump change, but hey it's still their loss. We've had clients drop them who like us, were paying like 1000$~ a month for services, anything from entire phone setups for an entire office of over 100 employees to internet packages to mobile phone packages.)
