    Rogers is solid from Whistler to Vancouver to Chilliwack(you can even include Hope if you are feeling generous) and the East side of Vancouver Island from Victoria to Campbell River.

    Sorry, I had forgot that band 10 only supports through 1770/2170 and not to 1780/2180. I have not bothered too check and see if 3GPP is working on an update to this or not.

    Your are correct that Sprint doesn't own any 700mhz licenses. However, they made an agreement with the CCA when they set up the "Roaming hub" to begin including band 12 in many of their phones. This...

    For the UK, check out Uswitch or this wikia. You can get some minutes, unlimited text, and 1GB data for 10
    The main operators in the UK are O2, 3UK, EE, and Vodafone; you can also check here for a...

    Yeah, I'm just north of Seattle, but I was basing it off of current native coverage. T-mobile has more in the west and Oklahoma while Sprint generally has a larger native footprint in the midwest and...

    Yes, AWS-3 is not exactly the same as Band 10. Band 10 is a superset of Band 4, and incorporates both AWS-1 (currently used under Band 4) and AWS-3.
    I don't understand what you mean by it not being...

    What about it? You don't have any service? Is that any different from today?



    voLTE will be fully implemented (by T-mobile at least) by the time 2016 rolls around and deployment could...

    Band 12 is already currently deployed by many regional carriers including the largest, US Cellular.

    As for being deployed shortly, I would include Band 10 from the AWS-3 auction this November....

    Band 12 definitely is included in some phones (most notably, many of US Cellular's) but it is often in a CDMA+LTE configuration for smaller US carriers. It will continue to grow with T-mobile and...

    Going back to the original topic of the JV, I would be extremely interested if they set up something similar to Bell and Telus in Canada with a MOCN/MORAN, after the auction. For instance T-mobile...

    Not at the present. Band 10 (a superset of Band 4) is required for AWS-3 and because it has not been auctioned anywhere yet, much less deployed, there are no phones that support it.
    With the US...

    The main reason Videotron would buy Mobilicity (or Wind for that matter) would be that there is already the infrastructure in place in the large cities. The secondary reason would be so that there...

    Won't happen as Wind doesn't have the assets/collateral or other backing. And as we have seen, foreign telecom investment in Canada is a no-go. The best hope for Wind to remain as a solid standalone...

    3G (UMTS/HSPA) will not work on your friends phone as it needs to explicitly support 850 and/or 1900 3G to work.
    However, you will be able to use GSM/GPRS/EDGE in areas where 1900mhz is running....

    While Telus hasn't announced anything officially, the general presumption is that Telus will make heavy use of their 700mhz spectrum for LTE coverage in Manitoba as they have minimal coverage...

    While I don't believe it likely for Shaw to attempt to enter the wireless game, I do not see the sale of its spectrum to Rogers being allowed to go ahead since Telus was denied the possibility of...

    AWS-3 will be interoperable with AWS-1, but that does not mean current phones will work (they won't). AWS-1, which was auctioned in 2008 in Canada and 2006 in the US, works on band 4...

    T-mobile has this thing called Test-drive. You may have heard of it.
    Basically, they give you an iPhone 5S for 7 days to use and try out the network, at no cost to you. They send you the phone, and...

    If everything stays as it currently is, definitely a possibility. I can't see that happening though with Mobilicity up for sale; somebody's going to buy them. You also have Videotron with spectrum in...

    I called today, and the CSR I talked with confirmed that they have LTE data.
    As for networks, they work with both Rogers and Telus, although it sounds like if you BYOD, it will be on Telus and...

    Both solid phones and definitely compact enough.

    That could very well be. In any case, Wind will not be a major player in the AWS-3 auction unless it is bought, or receives some massive, new financial backing from a third-party, which seems...

    Check out Phone Box
    It was brought up in the Canadian prepaid forum and looks like a solid deal for both short-term and longer term as well.
