I set it up and I’m actually getting speeds of 50/10. I’m now debating of getting rid of my Videotron internet and save a few bucks Grinning Face With Smiling Eyes.
After reading the letter you were sent. This "free Internet" seems to be for you being able to access the Bell Fibe TV app over WiFi in your home (which is why it is unlimited Internet) edit: and regular internet of course.

I'm in Montreal, seems to be for existing customers only, can't do it online. Maybe in store (like I want to go out in this!). Pretty insane deal!

I understand that most of those channels can be gotten FREE over the air with an antenna and that the Starter package is still SD (right?) and not HD. But WITH UNLIMITED internet, you really can't go wrong for $25 plus tax, come on people. That even beats out Videotron's slower Fizz 10/1.5 $30 unlimited internet with NO Cable TV included.

The starter package includes SD and HD channels.

Even some people on the North Shore get it.
Have you tried re-orienting your antenna?
Raising it a little?
RG59 wire?

Theoretically yes but practically no.

You need a VHF yagi and sometimes band pass filters for the adjacent channels. Transmitter power is low. Maybe with the frequency reorg and ATSC-3 we might get better service.

Also my antenna is 40 feet above ground and about 5 feet above the roof... with a clear line of sight south. Full signal for CBC, NBC, CW and PBS (33). FOX is variable depending on atmospheric conditions.

That's what I thought also but then the letter goes on to say "this means you can surf worry-free" and "jetz03" (OP) wrote that he gets 50/10.
Both of those things need an Internet access.
You can't surf with the Bell TV, Netflix or Weather Network app.

So far, no one from Ontario has posted that they got that letter.
There's no link also since it's not mentioned on Bell's Web site.

I think this applies to Ontario as well, I only subscribe to Fibe TV and when I tried to use the Netflix app thru the Bell receiver I would get the message that I needed to have an Internet subscription to work, I just tried it now and it works fine.

Don’t trust bell. They will promise and do something now. In 6 months they will show their real colors. If you have a good plan with any other company don’t give up for this.

Bell Fibe TV subscriptions always required a Bell Internet plan (similar to the VMedia and Teksavvy requiring their internet plan if you order their TV service as a CRTC requirement).

I assume they only upgraded your existing Bell Fibe 15 internet service, which you are already paying for, from 100GB to unlimited, like Teksavvy and others were upgrading to unlimited due to COVID-19. Fibe 15 normally includes only 100GB, while Fibe 25 and Fibe 50 have unlimited data.
Right but that placeholder Fibe Internet Services has a 0.5GB monthly cap in place making them not usable for practical purposes.

Are you subscribed to the Starter package?
Could you check if you have Internet access by doing a Speedtest over Wi-Fi on your computer or your cell phone and report back?

Thanks for posting.
That 32/6 on your phone was over Wi-Fi and NOT mobile service, right?
That would confirm Ontario and Québec with any Bell Fibe TV package.
Even more insane!

Québec has nothing to do in that matter.
Telecommunications are a federal jurisdiction.
It's been a few years now that you DON'T need a Bell Internet subscription to get Fibe TV.
Last few times that I checked, when trying to get rid of Rogers Cable I was given a hard "no" from Bell when I asked, and told it wasn't allowed in Ontario. This was even when I had Virgin Internet (which is owned by Bell).

I finally did get Fibe-TV back in November, but only because Bell told me they'd give me an Internet package similar to Virgin, as I was told once again I have to have Bell Internet to run Fibe. If it has changed since then, that's great news for everyone.
