Bell Aliant Reviews (275)
NEW COMERS here is what you need to know - Bell will invite you into their life, they will make big promises, they will usher you in with what sounds like a deal. It is ALL a lie. Bell will give you a "promotional rate" that will be your rate for 2 years...haha However, in the bell world 2 years is not two years. In fact it could be 2 months, 2 weeks, 2 seconds...whenever they feel like putting their price they will do it. As they say they do NOT have ANY FIXED rates. So you will be surfing along the internet happy one day but when the bill comes you will see increases...this won't happen once. I guarantee it will happen many times throughout their service. They may make big promise and "value" you as a customer when you're "new". But the moment you decide to sign up with them they will get your money, however much they decide they want of it.
Have you ever thought to yourself I just want an HONEST company or a CARING company ? well if you do I would probably look elsewhere. I mean I am not saying they are not these things (mainly because I don't have to say it - read the reviews that aren't me. They all tell a very similar story.)
All in all I am very displeased with Bell and have started calling around elsewhere. I should make sure all NEWCOMERS know that I have not been with bell for very long and already have this experience so my suggestion is to really think what you want from the company you are going to go with. If you want internet, cable, home phone, whatever by whatever cost and means necessary - than go with Bell. But just remember even at that my wifi always ends up cutting out on me anyways so I would not call them a quality service.
Bell Aliant they don't have an email clients can contact, no manage to talk to , no employees in Canada to talk to regarding my phone problem, anyone I talk to is from another country, except Canada.
I have a sick 79 year old father at home and my phone has not been working properly for a month now. I hope I don't have to call 911 for help. Bell Aliant your service sucks.
I apologize to the client for the poor experienceI have called and gave him my cell number asking him to call me to insure that I make this right and at least have the opportunity to speak to him directlyI will be sending the back to him because our goal is to provide positive experiences to our customersI would like to mention that we are a company that tries to be upfront with everything that we doThe need to be upfront with our service fee is of the upmost importance and appreciate the feedbackThe technician that was there has been through a extensive professional training program for technical plumbing both hands on and bookHe is enrolled in the state certified apprenticeship programWe have the upmost desire to insure quality work is completed when any work is doneOur company does have licensed technicians as wellWe believe in respect therefore would never sell, trade or pass client information outside of our organization

I am rejecting this response because:i will start by saying it took bell aliant over a month and a half tp respond to my Revdex.com complaint , whicj is very poor service , I did speak to the lady on the phone and told her I didnt know anything about this visual call waiting and how my wifes email was used without her or mine permission and why after yrs of getting a bill by mail , bell started to send a email bill which I knew nothing about,and why another persons name was taken of the bill , bell excuse is that its been over months and they cannot find out what happened , well maybe get the people that work for bell to do there job or keep records longer than months ,, so after talking to the lady on the phone I still did not get an answer to my complaint , just ask her for bell to get my bill right and to stop chargeing me thing on my bill that I should never have been charged in the first place
