Canadian wireless carrier Bell today launched its HSPA+ network and its first devices, including the iPhone 3GS and iPhone 3G. The network supports up to 21Mbps downstream on the Novatel Wireless U998 ($75) and future modems that support HSPA+ and should also supply as much as 7.2Mbps for the iPhone 3GS and other current smartphones.
When the iPhone hits the other Canadian carriers, users will at least have a speedy network to jump onto. Wireless carrier Bell today confirmed that the company will launch its awaited HSPA+ 3G network on November 4th. The 21Mbps network will launch just a day ahead of its Telus equivalent and should come with multiple phones and modems ready on the same day. Roaming deals will also be in effect immediately and should let Bell users roam on AT&T in the US as well as in most other countries.
For our Canadian readers, wireless carriers Telus and Bell have announced pricing and availability for the iPhone 3G and 3GS while current carrier Rogers has updated its iPhone plan pricing. Telus has announced that it is offering four plan levels with three extras each to chose from, for a total of twelve different plan options. Each plan provides subsidized iPhone pricing of $99CAD for the 8GB iPhone 3G (black), $199CAD for the 16GB iPhone 3G S (black/white), and $299CAD for the 32GB iPhone 3G S (black/white).
Last week, Canadian wireless carriers Bell and Telus announced that they would be offering the iPhone to customers. At the time details were scarce, but this week more information is available. Per Electronista, sources report that Bell will get the iPhone 3G and 3GS on November 4th, just as their HSPA-based 3G network goes live.
Canadian wireless carrier Bell should start carrying Apple's iPhone handset near the very start of November and feature similar device and price planning as seen on current Canadian iPhone sources. Per Electronista, sources familiar with the plans say the iPhone 3GS and 3G are both due to arrive on November 4th, which should also mark the formal start of the Canadian provider's HSPA-based 3G network. The news is corroborated by earlier word of Telus training ending at the same time and suggests Bell and Telus will have their networks and iPhone sales ready at the same time.
Things in Canada seem to be getting better for cell phone owners, and surprisingly fast. Not long after the announcement of the formation of a new Canadian wireless carrier as a result of a recent spectrum auction, Canadian carriers Bell and Telus have both announced plans to drastically transition their entire networks from.
