    Is telus' network just as fast as the others around (bell/rogers)?

    I currently have a tour and a monthly bill of about 120, and through a family member right now they're allowed to offer family a similar plan to what I have now for $65 and the 9900 is about $6 to purchase.

    I've actually never had reception issues or dropped called with Bell so I'm a little scared to move. Will the phone be just as fast on the internet/browsing as it would be if I got on on bells network?

    Depends where you are, I am on the west coast of Canada and here Telus's network is unmatched by everyone. You get service in os many more areas that Roger's doesn't. And yes the H+ is really fast!

    Bell and Telus share the same HSPA+ network, so it won't matter which one you use as long as you have a "4G" phone (aka the 9900). How they comapre to Rogers will depend on the city you live in. While I was in Montreal, Rogers was better. Downtown Toronto Telus seems to have the edge.

    and dont forget, bell/telus do not have a EDGE network, only a HSPA+ network... so if you go out of their network range you will lose signal completely... whereas with rogers, if you lose HSPA+ signal, most of the time you will still be able to connect to their EDGE network
