Bell, Rogers and TELUS join together to create “North America’s largest two-way mobile video calling community”

Mobile video calling has been trickling around for some time, carriers have adopted the service and customers have used it… but one of the major drawbacks is the fact that in order to use video calling on your mobile device you have to connect with somebody who’s on the same network.

Bell, Rogers and TELUS have joined up again to create “North America’s largest two-way mobile video calling community”. The big 3 have successfully completed a “inter-carrier mobile video calling” trial that gives their subscribers the ability to make clients two-way mobile video calling between carriers. No word on when this service will be launched or how much it will cost, but it’s a great step forward for Canadian wireless.

Stephen Howe, CTO for Bell Mobility said “We are proud to be part of the first inter-carrier partnership in North America to enable clients to call each other using video capabilities. By breaking down the barriers between video calling clients in Canada, we anticipate strong demand for the service – as we saw with past inter-carrier initiatives such as text and picture messaging.”
