I am surprised, Brian Crocker, that one of Eastlink's reps was that "open" about discussing the problems they have been experiencing with Bell Media regarding carriage of their channels, but sadly, that information is probably correct. Normally, Eastlink is VERY tight lipped about stuff like this. Perhaps the front line CSRs are becoming as frustrated about the situation as you and I. After all, I am sure they would like to see Space HD and Discovery just as much as the rest of us. It would be nice to complain to the CRTC, but it would be hard to word a complaint like this in a way that the CRTC would actually do anything.
As for Eastlink Cellular launcing on June 1st, that could be true, but I had thought that launch was more likely to be in the fall. After all, they are still building towers(notices are still showing up in my paper about Eastlink building them), so they cannot be ready to launch the service in all areas yet, and if a launch does happen, the service area will be really small. Also, once they launch, I wonder what kind of deals they will offer, and also, will they offer bundling with other Eastlink services? I am still "locked" with Bell Mobility until late January next year.
