  1. FibreOp TV Glitches/Quality

    Bell Aliant Home Phone, Internet, IPTV
    I've had Bell Aliant FibreOp for about 8 months now. When watching TV, every once in a while (at most maybe once or twice per 30 minutes), the TV signal glitches and sort of skips and shows a lot of video artifacts and the sound skips. Sometimes it happens more than others - mostly when I...

    Bell Aliant Home Phone, Internet, IPTV
    Sometimes when I've paused a live TV broadcast, when I start to play it again, it plays for a little, then jumps to live TV (meaning it skips right over some of the program). There's a message at the top of the screen, but it goes by quite fast, and I didn't get it verbatim... It's something...
  3. Eastlink vs Aliant

    Television Industry / Channels and Providers
    Just moved to Halifax and trying to decide between Eastlink and Aliant for all 3 services - phone, high speed internet, and HD cable. I don't do a ton of downloading, but overall internet speed and always-on reliability are very important. I have 2 HD TVs and I want the best reception, selection...

  7. Aliant readying HSPA network in Newfoundland?

    Smartphone/Tablet (Android, Blackberry & iOS)
    I've been spending a few days in Newfoundland, and as most Rogers users know well, there is no coverage off the Avalon peninsula. I thought it interesting, though, that my while I had no service, my Blackberry Bold said I could still make an emergency call. Curious, I did a network scan and...
