    Default BCE & Telus in 3G Network Pact

    Yep, although this is very complicated to explain due to the fact they are moving away from CDMA. Anyway, heres some reading on their upcoming 3G network.---> BCE and Telus in 3G network pact

    Here is some more on the move from CDMA---> Canada's Two CDMA Networks Planning a Migration to WCDMA

    Is there a huge difference in performance between the 3G network and the CDMA evdo/reva network? I've always wondered if BB's on the Telus network were crippled compared to Roger's.

    Evdo was a fully operational 3g network for over a full year in canada before rogers started their 3G ad campaigns. I am pretty sure rogers customers are pretty happy to be leaving Edge speeds haha
    If telus and bell do make the switch it will be to 4G. Why change from 3G to another 3G technology with little benefit and absolutely NO upsell ability for potential or existing clients.evdo and rogers 3G are practically the same now that rogers has caught up.

    CamLS: heres a couple links...

    wikipedia.org/wiki/Evdo
    wikipedia.org/wiki/Hsdpa

    Basically under ideal situations right now bell maxes out with EVDO Rev0 at around 2.5Mbps, and rogers new shiny is rated up to 7.2Mbps

    IMO, and I work in the industry, Rogers has the best 3G Network in North America. Their 3G runs on 850MHz which is MUCH more stable and strong than it's 1900 counterpart. The only other place that has GREAT 3G service is San Antonio, which is the home of AT&T World Headquarters.
