I know but its been like 9 years since they upgraded the neighborhood to FTTH. In L5L, Erin Mills we can just get 50-100.

I can see why, at our old place in North York, the bell install crews were awful, it was literally a year and a couple days after the street was repaved, they had it torn up for nearly half a year just for the FTTH install and left piles of dirt everywhere for months at a time. It was far less work then a full street and right of way rehab, and you could tell they were doing the absolute minimum and left it in worse condition then when they started work.

Order the Rogers service and keep Bell as a back up. After a month or two and they realize how much faster Rogers is, cancel Bell

I think Bell knows this and thats why they don't feel as much pressure to price match Rogers.Gee wrote: ↑ Order the Rogers service and keep Bell as a back up. After a month or two and they realize how much faster Rogers is, cancel Bell
I went the other way. When I lived in Mississauga I was using Rogers and I stuck with them for 18 years. Then Fibe cable along after I moved. Tried it out and I will never go back to cable. Rogers has called offering me 1 Gig for 40$ as a promo to win me back. But I rather pay double to keep Fibe. It is that much better

In your situation, your Bell service is just VDSL and Rogers will offer more bandwidth. I would switch

Thanks for reaching out. I don’t have an exact date for when your specific street will be built but I can tell you that we have started some parts of Mississauga particularly in Clarkson and Streetsville. A few years ago we completed some parts of the city that bordered Etobicoke because historically they were connected back to central hubs in Toronto.
Given the size of the city of Mississauga, we are working with the municipality to develop a full roll-out. Sadly, Covid and the Ontario lockdown are delaying a lot of discussions. Once we do have an approved permit for your area you’ll see a notification on your door that construction will begin and someone will be canvassing door to door to discuss pre-connecting the fibre wire to your home at no charge.

Thanks for the form, just filled it, not sure how it will speed things up, I have been waiting for it for years, no provider can provide a decent upload speed right now and I suffer when I have to WFH. Even with Rogers their max upload is only 30M.dannypachy wrote: ↑ First time poster on this forum, but wanted to chime in on this topic.
1. If your interested in having Bell Fibre installed on your property in the future, I would suggest you complete the contest form: https://www.bell.ca/Fibre-to-your-door
2. I reached out to the email address that was sent out from the consent form and got a response from the Bell FTTH Team.
