Bell/Rogers/Telus'/Shaw's networks are always in a constant state of being upgraded, often to meet demand that has been placed upon them by Teksavvy. In many cases, Bell has been forced to spend millions on upgrades, throttling, and open access facilities, to serve firms such as Teksavvy and their highly prolific Internet users.
Except out west there really isn't a need for a teksavvy service because Telus doesn't throttle and they don't enforce caps. So Telus is profitible but has put way more into network upgrades then bell.
I think bell is slow to rollout upgrades in an effort to maximize profits. They easily make enough money, that they could make a killer network and still turn a big profit. When you compare bell (even rogers) agaist their counterparts in western Canada and everything they say just doesn't add up.
