Bell “Fibe” False and Misleading Publicity Class Action

Quebec Superior Court file #



Plaintiff alleges that Bell Canada misleads consumers by using the term Fibe and/or fibre optics when offering services that are in fact hybrid, composed of fibre optics and copper, in violation of section 219 of Quebec’s Consumer Protection Act.
