BWI5 Service Package Still Available.

I have had reports that the Internet links to the Bell Wireless Internet 5 (BWI5) pages only work intermittently.  

A search of the Bell website fails to turn up a link or indeed any reference to BWI5 or the Deferral Account connectivity. It is as if the service package did not exist.

However, I have received confirmation from Bell that as of 30 Jun 2015 the BWI5 service package is still available for delivery in the designated Deferral Account areas - namely Echo Bay/Laird, Goulais, SSM-Airport, St. Joseph island  and Wawa.  Interested parties can order the service via Bell direct sales at 1-888-466-2453.

Submission to the CRTC About the Deferral Account Program.

A reader submitted a comment to the blog entry "Bell Now Taking Deferral Account Sign Ups 22 Aug 2..."

I feel the link in the comment is of such value that it is worthwhile publishing the comment as a separate blog entry in addition to publishing it in the comment section of the targetted blog entry. 

Here is the comment in full including the link. Be forewarned, the complaint in the link runs to over 25 pages plus annexes and contains a very detailed history of the Deferral Account saga.


It appears that Bell is either hiding, or has not completed the rollout of the program despite reporting "mission accomplished". 

I have complained to the CRTC Case ID 701360

A copy of the complaint can be found at the link below:
