Bye Bye Bell! – Part 8

July 8, 2010

I thought it was all over between Bell and I given everything that has gone on. But I came home last night and discovered I was wrong. My wife showed me an white envelope with no return address and a real stamp (as opposed to a machine printed stamp). When I looked at the contents, […]

Bye Bye Bell – Part 7

May 27, 2010

My wife finally got around to calling Bell Canada to raise the issues that I spoke about in my last entry. First of all she got an Indian call center (my wife actually got the rep to admit it after pushing him on the issue). So much for not sending Bell customers to call centers […]

Bye Bye Bell! – Part 6

May 11, 2010

I came home today to another Bell Canada bill. I was prepared to go ballistic as they already billed us for our last month as I mentioned previously after we moved to Teksavvy Home Phone. So I opened it and found some good news and some bad news: The good news is that Bell Canada […]

Bye Bye Bell! – Part 5

May 3, 2010

When I got home tonight, my wife handed me a card in a very nice envelope. It was another card from Bell Canada. I guess that the first one wasn’t enough so they sent us another one with among other things, the following: “If your expectations are not being met by your current service provider […]

Bye Bye Bell! – Part 4

April 26, 2010

So we’re one month into our adventure with Teksavvy Home Phone and two things have come up that I’d like to update you on. First one of my readers made this comment in part 3 of my adventure when I mentioned that I’m expecting a bill from Bell because they want 30 days notice: “I […]

Bye Bye Bell! – Part 3

April 4, 2010

So March 30th has come and gone, and the universe didn’t end after switching from Bell to Teksavvy Home Phone. One of the things that did happen is that Teksavvy called us to make sure that everything well (in fact they called us twice after we didn’t respond to their first call). That’s a nice […]

Bye Bye Bell! – Part 2 [UPDATED]

March 15, 2010

As you likely read in my last entry, my wife and I have decided to dump Bell Canada as our home phone provider and switch to Teksavvy since we get our Internet from them and they have excellent customer service. A reader e-mailed me to ask why I put a such an emphasis on the […]

Bye Bye Bell! – Part 1

March 13, 2010

It’s time to dump Bell as my home phone provider. After our recent experience with their customer service (and no, I don’t care that Bell is trying to improve on that), my wife and I decided that it was time for Bell to go. Frequent readers will recall that we did a test drive of […]

Our Attempt To Switch From Rogers To Bell Went Horribly Wrong….. Which Reflects Very Badly On Bell

July 31, 2021

My wife and I wanted to switch from Rogers to Bell because our pricing for what we get from Rogers was horrible. Specifically, TV, home phone and Internet. Not only that, Bell has as I’ve stated previously, a much better Internet offering than Rogers. Despite the fact that we have had issues with Bell in […]
