Vonage The only thing I would give Bell credit for is trying to wipe out any competition

The only thing I would give Bell credit for is trying to wipe out any competition before they get wiped out themselves.

They are dirty pool players if you ask me. I guess you are too young to remember the days when Bell was charging $1.00 per minute on long distance phone calls even within the same province. Bell is not the reason we have lower phone rates, I can assure you of that. If they had it their way, we would all be paying through the roof for phone service. If we kept going the way Bell was going, we would all end up starting our own neighborhood party line phone systems again just to get rid of Bell.

They are a lousy company to do business with. I have had so many problems with them, and still have trouble with my Bell Mobility service that they are charging me an arm and a leg for. Each month they remove something. Message Manager, Call Display, Unlimited Weekend/Evenings, and recently they've removed my 100 prime time minutes that I used to get. I signed a 2-year contract in December 2003 and that is the last contract I will ever sign on a cell phone.

Do you know that they can change your phone plan without even letting you know about it? You'll find out about it when you get your bill.

There were several write-ups in the Ottawa Citizen about their unfair billing practices. However, this did not seem to stop them. They are still at it. I'm sure next week when I get my bill for next month, I'll be writing them yet another letter asking to have something credited or fixed.

What irks me is that the minute they start losing business because a company such as Vonage comes along and offers customers decent and fair rates on their telephone service, Bell cuts their prices. Look at long distance. The first company that I recall offering long distance outside of Bell to Canadians was Unitel (which was bought by AT&T). Then Sprint came along. Bell raised their local rates from $13.99 per month to over $20 per month because they said they were losing money on their long distance. In order to raise these prices like that they went to the CRTC asking for approval. The CRTC granted them the rate increases every time because Bell was threatening they would have to lay off their staff because of the cut in revenue due to the loss of long distance. They failed to mention the additional revenue they were making through their brand new call management features (Call Display, Voicemail, Call Return, etc). They also failed to mention the revenue they were collecting with their new cell phone network. In the early 1990s, Sprint released a $20 unlimited long distance plan across Canada. Sprint had so much success with that, Bell started doing the same thing. The problem was that Sprint took millions of customers away from Bell. Bell lost huge amounts of revenue. Sprint eventually ran into problems. The problem was Sprint did not have enough circuits to support the influx of traffic. Customers started complaining because they were getting either re-order tones or recordings stating that the circuits were busy. Sprint decided to cap the long distance at 800 minutes for $20.00. Guess what, Bell did that too even though they had enough lines and equipment to support unlimited long distance for $20 per month.

The only time Bell lowers prices is when they absolutely have to do it to stay in business. When they had the monopoly, they literally gouged people. I will never forget that, and once my 2 year contract is over, I will never pay them another dime of my money. They are not leaders, they are a company that tries to get as much money as possible leaving customers with low value for their hard earned dollars paid. Bell has created their Voip system to compete with Vonage, Primus, and the several cable TV companies that are now offering Voip across Canada.

Let us pray that they do not succeed in wiping Vonage or other companies out. You can be guaranteed if they wipe out their competitors, their prices will soar because the bottom line is that they don't care about you. They only care about their shareholders. This is all like a big game of chess to them.
