Any time frame when the 700Mhz network will be launched? Telus/Bell has there's going in Winnipeg and for a while now. Also, where is LTE 850Mhz being launched? This info is very useful for purchasing boosters to know if I need 2100/1700Mhz or if I can use a 850Mhz for LTE since it will also support HSPA.

Hi Dan, 850 LTE is going to be our low band coverage layer for the foreseeable future, 2100 AWS will continue to be deployed wherever the population is close enough to make use of it. No news on 700 deployment has been announced yet.

Our coverage maps will be getting a refresh soon which will implicitly show where 850 is deployed rurally. Good questions!
