    you can tell they really need that 700mhz spectrum.

    • Dave

      The current LTE rollout by telus/bell/rogers at frequencies higher than 700 MHz is market driven.
      Why wouldn’t they want to rollout on 700 MHz given lesser frequencies = longer wavelength = better signal propagation = less towers to upgrade = less cost to provide LTE and beyond?
      Don’t believe me about the signal propagation? Compare the distance from your house to the [defunct] location of the TV tower versus the distance from your house to cell tower.

    Like me and MS on so.cl

    Facebook is so last year, it’s like the new myspace now

    LTE is nice, but its not super fast LTE. At least my iPhone battery will last longer (switching between LTE and 3g all day was murder on the battery)

  • Joe

    Not hating on Telus here, but 12-25 average? My Rogers HSPA+ can reach 14 MBps down in the middle of the day

    Give it a another year, and lte will be overloaded and not much faster than hspa+ . especially south of the border.

    I usually get 30~50 on Telus LTE

  • Dave

    What’s the point of LTE is you don’t have an unlimited or at least 10gb of data… I dunno but watching youtube or checking the mail doesn’t require 50mb speeds. I’m on hspa+ and have never had a problem, the only time I would switch to LTE is if I could get a massive data plan so I could torrent HD movies on the go on my android phone or tablet…

      My apartment has really crappy free internet, so my phone is usually on LTE when at home.

      Ever since moving here, I have been finding myself easily reaching my 6gb limit.

    In st. Johns i get 50mbps down with rogers lte, got tired of waiting for telus to launch it about 2 months ago

  • Jon

    And still nothing I’m saskatchewan 🙁

      Don’t get your panties in a wad.

      SaskTel is launching theirs in Feb 2013. Hopefully you live in Regina or Saskatoon.

    Brantford, “home of the Great One.” That would be Sir Alexander Graham Bell, whose stick-handling improved quality of life for billions of people, and created jobs for millions. Including those on this website.

    100% coverage LTE coming to Spuzzam BC. LOL

  • Matt

    I hope to see coverage in Sudbury by the end of the year…

  • Gregory

    Still waiting on Georgetown, ON. They have the town surrounded – Brampton, Milton, Guelph – and all the farms around us are lit up, but nothing in Georgetown proper.

    Sigh. At least I can save battery on my iPhone for now by disabling LTE mode on it.

    I got LTE in Trois-Rivières, QC since yesterday. However, speeds are weak, I actually don’t see any real difference. Max I got was around 11 Mbits.
