Hi rainey, Welcome to the Fibe forums!
I've had FibeTV since the end of Oct. as you know, I've not had any of the issues you mentioned.
That said, I have a client who is over near Outremont that has had some issues.
It's been a line problem, the connection inside the building from the brown Bell box outside. It happened right along with the season change.
You also see the same type of issues with Videotron, albeit maybe not the the same degree, because with FibeTV you don't have the analog fallback. This summer I had nearly 3 months of issues with illico, took 7 techs to finally fix my issues.
My guess would be the problems you are hearing from this building are isolated to that building or switch.
My building is 6 story, and there's 12 units here, and I'm also 2500ft from the brown box, so my sync rate isn't as high as many others here.
