I just called the Bell MTS store and apparently they are not getting access to MTS coverage until July 15th. This has got to be the worst transition I have ever seen. Congrats on losing all your customers to Rogers.

Why? Because Telus has a strong incentive to do so, to pick up and retain new customers. Bell on the other hand is in no hurry to compete with itself.

From what I know Bell has access to HSPA on MTS tower just not LTE yet. No big deal.
I'm a Bell Mobility customer who lives in the Narol Postal District south of Dunning Rd and inside the floodway which is in the Winnipeg Rate Centre. Everytime I make a call from home my phone connects to a tower in the Selkirk Rates Centre. Last year I had to migrate to a Canada-wide calling plan because I was being charged long distance charges after selecting unlimited local calling because the sales associate at Best Buy claimed that both Selkirk and Winnipeg were in each others' local calling area. If I were I legacy MTS or Telus customer this wouldn't have been anice issue.
