Apartment Building Residents at 185 Cosburn Ave. Toronto found Notices taped to their doors from Bell.
The Notice said Bell Technicians “will require access to certain areas of your Apartment Building, including all Apartment Units” for 4 consecutive days, starting August 8, 2016 from 9:00a.m.–6:00p.m.
“Bell Technicians will be installing new Bell Gigabit Fibe fibre ISW-inside wiring in each Apartment Unit to ensure compatibility with our new Bell Gigabit Fibe fibre Technology and will be accompanied by a Representative appointed by your Building Property Management Team if your Apartment Unit is unoccupied when the Bell Technicians arrive.
“This initiative is supported by the Owner of your Building.”
A Resident of 185 Cosburn Ave. Toronto who asked to remain anonymous said she was startled to find the Notice on her door from Bell, saying that at some point over the 4 consecutive day period, Bell Technicians would be entering her Apartment Unit to install new Bell Gigabit Fibe fibre ISW-inside wiring.
At 9:30a.m. the following Monday, a Bell sub-contractor named “Bernie” and a Building Superintendent arrived unannounced at her Apartment Unit door and demanded entry to install the new Bell Gigabit Fibe fibre ISW-inside wiring.
The Resident at first refused Bell sub-contractor “Bernie” access but said she relented because she felt sorry for Bell sub-contractor “Bernie“.
The Resident said Bell sub-contractor “Bernie” told her he needed access to her Apartment Unit riser to wire the Apartments Units above. And if he didn’t, it would cost Bell sub-contractor “Bernie” $200.00 in lost pay.
The Resident said she finally agreed to allow access the next day, after Bell sub-contractor “Bernie” told her he is paid $40.00 per Apartment Unit for new Bell Gigabit Fibe fibre ISW-inside wiring installations and that if he couldn’t get access to her Apartment Unit riser, he couldn’t wire the Apartment Units above.
Bell said its “Bell Technicians connect Communication Infrastructure in the Apartment Building to Bell Fibre Network and may require access to individual Apartment Units to complete the work, even in cases where Service may not be immediately required.
