Starting last week, my internet service got "capped", according to the plan I pay for. Prior to that, I was enjoying a promo that let me use the line to it's full potential (no speed caps whatsoever).

Problem is, although my service plan is said to allow me up to 7mbps, every speed test i now try cannot go past 6mbps, give or take 100kbps. Some Bell reps tell me this is "normal", although one in particular said my line was capable of much, much more than that, at that the cap shouldn't get stuck at 6mbps.

The funny part is, some Ontario subscribers, who pay for Fibe 6 - not 7 - are also capped at 6mbps, give or take 100kbps. So I'm starting to think that Bell as indeed capped me at a Fibe 6 level, instead of 7, whether they'll admit to it or not. So I'm asking if, please, fibe tv subscribers in ontario and quebec who have fibe 6 and fibe 7 options could perhaps run a few speed checks, on Bell's site or speedtest.net, to see where we all stand. It would be interesting to see if there is any difference at all between the two services ...

another user on fibe 25, in the fibe tv forum, is reporting speeds of 25mbps (plus or minus .25mbps) .... what bugs me is that the meter will literally cap at 6.10mbps no matter which device i try, wired or on wifi. you can even see it "try" to go past it and get slammed back to 6.10mbps.

bell rep told me upfront that my line is capable of much more than that. it just seem as though i'm on a fibe 6 service by accident, even though i'm showing up as fibe 7 on their system.

i'm still waiting for someone from montreal on a five 7 service to post their speedtest results ...
