I'm not aware of any major operations, apart from satellite TV, that Bell has in BC or AB. That's done by Telus.
Otherwise, my low profit comment may have been a bit off topic but it refers to Bell failing or being extremely slow to upgrade its infrastructure in major portions of Canada's largest cities and rural towns. Meanwhile, they are rebuilding parts of Toronto a second time, from FTTN to FTTH. In overall numbers, Canada has dropped from 4th place in the world for internet connectivity in 2003 to 9th place in 2012, the latest figure I could find.
The Canadian government has announced it intends to connect 300,000 households in isolated areas by 2019. At 26,000 each, that's close to $7.8 billion in infrastructure improvement costs that will be offloaded to taxpayers. BCE makes over $20 billion a year in profit. That's over $80 billion in profit over the life of the current government program. That's not counting Telus, Rogers, Shaw and other companies that provide the similar internet services. It's not that Bell cannot afford to provide the services, it's just choosing not to because it knows the government will make Canadian taxpayers pick up the tab. And just where does it stop? Will Bell and other companies just stop investing in infrastructure, knowing that the government will provide $billions in subsidies over the next few years and even more in future years as Canada falls farther behind the rest of the world?
