I’ve had a hate-on for Bell Canada ever since they casually added an extra two hundred dollars to my phone bill, simply for flicking a switch to activate the already-installed jacks in my new condo. At nerd school I learned how they choked the speed of their residential high-speed internet service, just so they could charge more for the real thing.
But my biggest beef has been their overpriced landline service. Each month I’ve had to fork out forty of my hard-earned dollars just to get a dial tone. Well, no more!
I was thrilled to hear the announcement of City Fido in Toronto this past April, and equally disgusted by the junk offer put forth by Telus to steal its thunder. Because I believe in Fido so much, I’ve signed up for a two-year contract and given them the go-ahead to liberate my home phone number from Bell.
Free at last! Free at last! Thank God almighty, I’m free at last!
