    None of the Samsung versions on Canadian operators support mmWave.
    Want to learn more about how LTE works?

    What phones support Canada's first public mmWave service introduced last October?

    None as far as I know. ENCQOR is an Ericsson partnership to get some government funding. There's no real commercial deployment, and no real network. They are targeting IOT device development.

    Not 100% sure, but I believe they only have experimental licenses from ISED to test the technology for a handful of sites in ON and QC.

    Once ISED finishes auctioning mmWave commercially, I doubt ENCQOR will own any of it.

    While IOT sounds great and all that, are there actually any plans in Canada that are of reasonable cost for them? The cheapest data only plan I found (that used to be $10/mo) is now $15 /mo and that's with Lucky mobile. I don't think anyone really wants to pay that to connect an IOT device like a light switch, car GPS or the like. $2-5 is the amount I'm willing to pay.

    So it's the size of the added antennas I believe. I thought they could be printed on a thin film like existing anntens as but I don't think that's the case.

    I'm not sure if it is a service that is offered to retail customers yet. It appears to be mainly offered to enterprise customers at this time.
