The race for LTE dominance in Canada is still a hot topic. Rogers, Bell, TELUS and their respected sub-brands have all deployed LTE, expanded coverage and released several devices to their customers. In addition, regional carrier MTS went live with their LTE network, and next year SaskTel will jump on board. The latest expansion is courtesy of Bell by reaching Fort McMurray in Alberta. The coverage seems decent as it covers the core of the town, but more expansion seems to be on the horizon in 2013. According to an internal doc I received it reads that “Bell clients have access to Canada’s largest 4G LTE networks which is available to more than 21 million Canadians.” This number is up a million a couple weeks ago and approximately represents 63% of the Canadian population.
