Many of my friends seem to regret the jump. Internet speed is ok but HD channels aren't the best. Also, there are some HD channels lacking from BellEVu.

I switched in the fall and am very happy with the offering, Internet speed is at what was advertised 25/5 and the TV is comparable to BellSatellite although the PVR functionality isn't there..yet. As for programming I did a channel by channel compare and apart for the fact that since BellAliant is a regional provider there are a lot of local channels from other parts of the country missing (Just an Altantic, Eastern and Pacific feed) there isn't too much else, the only HD channels I found (at the time) were The ScoreHD and TLC HD, that being said I have SpeedHD which as of yet has failed to appear on satellite. If the much hyped Mediaroom rollout happens as planned then it could be the game changer the telco needs to make a difference.

I have the same opinion as NB_TVLover basically. While additional HD channels would be awesome I don't find the SD channels offensive as I once did with Rogers.

As for the HD channel quality itself I find it looks better than it did on my Bell Expressvu service, but that could of course be TV dependent.

A final note: FibreOP TV is _NOT_ the same as FibeTV technology wise.

For me the TV is just OK.

I really don't watch it on any kind of regular basis. It is easier to get what I want from the internet for my TV viewing.

I think that when it is available, if ever, I will just go with the Internet and phone. Eventually, when the kids are old enough to have their own cell phones, I'll cancel the home phone and just keep the internet service.

All of this depending on what happens with UBB and if Aliant continues to offer unlimited service, of course!;)
