NorthernTel flips HSPA+ network on in Timmins

A few weeks back Norma Hughes said that “By 2011, Northern Tel is going to be 100% HSPA active”. Timmins residents got some great news today as the HSPA+ service in the area has been turned on! Coverage is limited but the device selection and pricing is big – and the same as Bell (NortherTel is a division of Bell Aliant). So some of the devices you now have are the iPhone 4, BlackBerry Bold 9780 and Torch 9800, Samsung Galaxy S Vibrant, Windows Phone 7 LG Optimus Quantum, and even the newly released Android 2.2 HTC Desire (for a low $49 on a 3-year). Even better is that the Samsung Galaxy Tab is for sale along with tablet plans for this and the iPad. NorthernTel also have a few promos happening for when you sign up on contract.
