$750 Million National Class Action Commences Against Bell Mobility and Bell Canada
Apr 17 15
A $750 million national class action has been commenced against Bell Mobility Inc. and Bell Canada, Inc. on behalf of Bell Mobility and Virgin Mobile customers for a privacy breach resulting from Bell's Relevant Ads Program. It is alleged that the defendants used the program to track, collect and sell customers' sensitive account and internet browsing information to advertisers. The lawsuit seeks damages for breach of privacy, breach of contract and breach of the Telecommunications Act. A similar lawsuit was commenced in the Province of Quebec. On November 16, 2013, Bell Canada commenced the Relevant Ads Program which tracked Bell Mobility and Virgin Mobile customers' account and network usage information, including internet sites they visited on Bell Mobility's network, to generate marketing reports that were sold to advertisers. Following Bell's announcement of the program, the Privacy Commissioner of Canada commenced an investigation after receiving an unprecedented volume of complaints. On April 7, 2015, the Privacy Commissioner released a report in which it found that Bell violated the federal Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act because it did not adequately disclose the nature of the information and customers were not given the option to properly consent to the use of their information for the program. On April 13, 2015, Bell Canada announced the cancellation of the Relevant Ads Program. While Bell promised to delete all customer profiles created under the program, the lawsuit seeks the appointment of an expert to oversee and confirm the destruction of the personal information. The lawsuits were launched by Sutts, Strosberg LLP and Charney Lawyers, class action firms with expertise in privacy breach class actions. The firms represent the plaintiffs in national class actions commenced against the federal government for privacy breaches in the Marihuana Medical Access Program and the Canada Student Loans program.

Bell Mobility Launches 4G Wireless Service in Gameti, Nahanni Butte, Paulatuk and Ulukhaktok
Dec 8 14
Bell Mobility announced the launch of 4G wireless service in the Northwest Territories communities of Gameti, Nahanni Butte, Paulatuk and Ulukhaktok. Residents in these communities will now be able to call, text, browse, and watch video using the latest wireless devices, handsets, tablets and smartphones on the Bell network. This innovative upgrade was completed in partnership with Falcon Communications and is part of Northwestel's Modernization Plan. The federal government is contributing a total of approximately $700,000 to the 4G projects in Gameti, Nahanni Butte, Paulatuk and Ulukhaktok through Falcon Communications. This contribution accounts for approximately one half of total eligible project costs. These projects represent a small portion of the projects being funded through the Government of Canada for enhanced broadband Internet service in the Northwest Territories. Overall, the federal government is contributing up to $14.8 million towards similar broadband enhancements across the territories through the Canada Strategic Infrastructure Fund, which supports large-scale infrastructure projects that strengthen areas vital to sustaining economic growth and enhancing Canadians' quality of life. Unlike more conventional 4G wireless upgrades, the innovative service being rolled out in Gameti, Nahanni Butte, Paulatuk and Ulukhaktok relies on satellite technology to connect wireless signals due to the more remote nature of the communities.
