Since Telus has LTE+ and Bell and Telus have a sharing agreement...i would not be surprised to see if they are already starting to do testing on amalgamting the networks.

I have been getting the LTE + on my phone for a few days now, various parts of the city, but not seen outside the city. I tWeeted BellMTS and Support a couple days back asking if it was turned on but never got a reply at all.

How do you know if you are getting LTE Advance yet or not?
Also what exactly is LTE Advance?

Gordon, I had to go back to my tweet to BellMTS, and I got the pic. Attached this time. Device showing LTE+. And I used the Speedtest (Ookla). And was getting high 90s to 100 mbps download readings on my Note 5. As said, not sure if it's fully deployed or just in testing phases still?

Could be in deploy/testing mode as there have been a lot of outage notifications in various parts of Winnipeg according to the service status page.
