The Cliffs of Insanity, Part IV

Only by comparing this “new” service from Aliant to this project from silverorange et al can you understand the true extent to which Aliant just doesn’t get it. And never will.

By my rough calculation, an average month of surfing the mobile web would cost me about $10,000 under Aliant’s plan.

Thank god I can multi-task during dormancy — that just sounds rude…

I suspect that the real evidence that Aliant has lost touch is the fact that the new phone book doesn’t have an Island scene on the cover. Everyone I know has commented on it — and not one favourably. Maybe it speaks to the smallness of our minds that we care about such things — but I think it’s the last vestige of any sense that Island Tel…er, Aliant…can evoke brand loyalty based on the fact that it’s “our” phone company.

So the ability for a branch of BCE to maintain a false understanding in a market is evidence it does not care about that market?
