Bell on 2019 season: 'I hope everybody's ready'

Bell on 2019 season: 'I hope everybody's ready' Despite not playing in 2018, Le'Veon Bell doesn't want anyone to forget his status as one of the NFL's top running backs. Bell made his New York Jets debut Tuesday during mandatory minicamp practices and claimed the league "will remember" how talented he is when he plays in a game again, according to SNY's Manish Mehta. "I hope everybody's ready," he added. The Jets want to be selective while working Bell back to action during camp, but the star rusher was excited to hit the field for the first time since January 2018. "I came into the building yesterday ... it just felt so good," he said, per ESPN's Rich Cimini. "I'm excited.

Both plans have no overage fees, but after 10 gigabytes of data have been used, customers will experience reduced speeds.

Bell Canada has followed Rogers by matching an "unlimited" cellphone data plan with no overage fees for downloading more than 10 gigabytes of data each month.

But like the Rogers plan announced yesterday, customers will experience slower speeds once those 10 gigabytes have been used. Both companies are offering the service starting at $75 per month.

The announcement on Bell's website said that beyond 10 gigabytes, "speeds will be reduced for light web browsing, email and texting."

Police: Women vanish with Le'Veon Bell's jewelry worth $500K

Police: Women vanish with Le'Veon Bell's jewelry worth $500K HOLLYWOOD, Fla. — Police say two female acquaintances vanished with more than half a million dollars in jewelry from star NFL running back Le'Veon Bell's Florida home. Hollywood police say Bell returned from the gym May 25 and found the women gone and his jewelry missing. The police report obtained by The Associated Press refers to the two women as Bell's girlfriends. Bell said items in his closet were in disarray and all his jewelry was missing, including two gold chains with diamonds, a black panther pendant with black and white diamonds and a Rolex. They total $520,000. Bell practiced with the New York Jets on Tuesday for the first time since signing a four-year, $52.

Bell has joined Rogers in offering wireless data plans that don’t charge overage fees once the The Bell offers will end June 30 while Telus says its plan with 10 gigabytes of data plus five “With that said, we note there is still a healthy gap between Freedom’s pricing and Rogers ’ initial pricing

Rogers is making a shift in its wireless service offerings by introducing unlimited data plans — something Rogers says its new Infinite wireless plans will start at for up to 10 gigabytes of Global News asked Telus and Bell if they’ll match Rogers , but neither company replied to the request.

The offer from the Montreal-based company is available until June 30.

Telus, meanwhile, also came out on Thursday with a beefed up data plan that would allow customers up to 15 GB per month for $75. Unlike Rogers' plan which the company says is permanent, and similar to Bell's which is a promotional offer, the Telus offering is only for a limited time, available to anyone who signs up by July 2.

"We're always making enhancements to our customer experience. We currently have a promotional offer for new, renewing and existing BYOD customers," spokesperson Brandi Rees told CBC News.

While offering a higher data limit, the Telus offer is not "unlimited" in that any customer who goes over the 15 GB limit in a month would be charged the usual pay-per-use overage rate of $10 per 100 MB.

Thousands of Bell Fibe subscribers left in the dark in final moments of Raptors Game 5

Thousands of Bell Fibe subscribers left in the dark in final moments of Raptors Game 5 TORONTO — Several thousand Bell Fibe customers were left hanging in the pivotal last moments of Game 5 at the NBA Finals when their TV signals went dark. Toronto Raptors fans took to social media to fume over a technical glitch that caused them to miss the last 30 seconds of the match, as their team trailed the Golden State Warriors by a mere point. Bell spokesman Marc Choma confirmed "several thousand customers" experienced a drop in Bell Fibe  service on Monday night. He says the problem was tied to a "hardware malfunction" that knocked out all of the TV channels for about 10 minutes.

TORONTO - Bell has responded to a new Rogers wireless data pricing strategy by offering limited-time Telus is taking a different approach from the other two national carriers, with a promotion that effectively charges per month for 15 gigabytes of data full-speed data usage per month, followed

Nonetheless, the beefed up data plans represent a shift in Canada's cellphone service landscape, where companies have been slower to adopt unlimited plans than their counterparts in the United States.

However, unlimited data plans have been available from regional competitors, such as SaskTel in Saskatchewan and Freedom Mobile, which operates wireless networks in Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia.

An analyst report from Bloomberg said the Rogers offer is at least  25 per cent cheaper than the company's comparable plan. While likely to be welcomed by consumers, report author John Butler called the announcement "a worrisome development for the company and the Canadian wireless industry."

That's because the price drop is likely to bring about a "prolonged decline" in the amount of revenue wireless companies earn per customer.

"Even if more users upgrade to the new plan, Rogers' ability to monetize data-usage growth in the long term will be limited."

However, a similar report from TD Securities' Vince Valentini said the bank was in favour of "both the timing and the magnitude of the pricing changes," but that its forecasts for Rogers would depend on whether all major carriers follow suit.

BMO analyst Tim Casey echoed that sentiment in his own written statement, which said competitive reactions would be critical to determining the outcome of the move.

The changes are not unexpected, however, Casey said.

"We believe the timing reflects the evolution of the industry."

Bell couldn't describe jewelry thieves because he only saw them naked.
There's a good reason why Le'Veon Bell wasn't able to tell authorities what two women he accused of stealing over $500,000 in jewelry from him were wearing on the day of the incident. In 911 audio obtained by TMZ Sports, Bell said he wasn't able to give police a detailed description because the women were naked last he saw them. "When I left, (one of the women) was in the bed," Bell said on the call. "She was in the bed, not wearing clothes when I left. So, I didn't see her. You know what I'm saying. "(The other girl) was in the bed too," he continued. "They didn't have clothes on." The alleged robbery occurred on May 25 at the New York Jets running back's Florida home.
