Bell: You’ll Love Us For Charging You More


This is so great; the cojones on these people are amazing. From Bell’s page describing their 3G USB sticks for business users:

System Access Fees are charged by all wireless companies to help pay for the network and the ongoing software, technology and other upgrades to that network. Generally, the higher the fee, the greater the opportunity to invest in network quality to enhance your experience. Just one more reason to choose Bell.

Really? After fighting hard to keep this country an overpriced technological backwater for more than a decade, you’re saying “You should choose us, because you’ll pay more”?

Way to stay in-character, Bell. You keep being awesome.

    Well, at least they aren’t lying about charging you more. Of course, they are lying about using the funds towards the network, which they won’t upgrade unless forced at gunpoint by the fed or losing business to a competitor.

    The other thing they’ve avoided mentioning is that money gets you literally half the performance that their competitors offer at that price.
