Rogers will no longer be the only operator to offer iPhones in Canada – Macitynet.it
A few days after the announcement by Orange and Vodafone that they will offer iPhone in the United Kingdom thus ending the long exclusive of O2, new revelations emerge which indicate an identical operation also for the Canadian market. Here for over a year Rogers has been offering iPhone exclusively but, according to insiders in Canada, iPhone will soon be available for purchase from Bell and Telus.
Neither of the two operators let alone Apple have released official announcements: the indiscretions for appear rather founded and are also reported by The Globe and Mail. According to the magazine, public communication could take place shortly, perhaps already today or tomorrow.
To date Rogers has been the only Canadian operator to have a 3G network suitable to support iPhone, remember that the two competitors Bell and Telus have signed a cooperation agreement to divide the investment of a billion dollars to build and extend an HSDPA network. The construction of the new cellular infrastructure was completed several months ahead of the initial project: the introduction of the iPhone as an alternative to Rogers by Bell and Telus represents the last step to realign competitiveness in the country's mobile sector.
