In all, Rogers? LTE network is live in Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver, Ottawa, and surrounding areas for each. They also recently launched it in St John?s, Newfoundland, and now Halifax and Calgary can be added to the list. In the press release for the Halifax/Calgary launch, Rogers also mentioned Edmonton will see the network soon as well, sometime ?in the coming months?. Hopefully the expansion doesn?t stop any time soon!

Perfectly in line with the launch of the new LTE enabled iPad, Virgin mobile has gone live with their LTE network. It piggy-backs off of Bell?s network, and is currently active in major urban areas including Ottawa, Montreal, Quebec City, Halifax, Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver, Yellowknife, and many cities in Southern Ontario including Toronto, London, Kitchener, and more. Of course, in order to support the new iPad, they are now offering LTE microSIM cards as well.

As for prices, they have decided to keep things simple and straight-forward, extending their existing Flexi-Data plan for tablets to include 4G LTE. This starts at $5/month for 10 MB, after which, it steps up to $15 for 250 MB. If you exceed 250 MB of usage, you enter the last tier of 5 GB for $35/month. Overages beyond 5 GB are charged at 1.5 cents/MB.

Competition has been roaring in Canada when it comes to unlimited plans and offerings, and most carriers are doing their part by introducing affordable packages. Virgin Mobile is certainly no exception, as they have recently launched new $35 and $45 Unlimited plans. The $35 Unlimited City Calling Plan is available only for CDMA handsets, and only in major cities including Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto, Ottawa, and Montreal. It offers up unlimited local calling, along with unlimited Canadian, U.S., and international text messaging.

The $45 Unlimited Calling Plan is available for all handsets and in all locations (except Manitoba and Saskatchewan), and offers up unlimited local calling, unlimited Canadian, U.S., and international text messaging, along with call display. Additionally, any data or long-distance packages are eligible to be added on to the $45 plan, so it's a great starting point for customers looking to build a personalized solution. Both of these packages are officially available now, so get in contact with Virgin Mobile if you're interested!

Telus is preparing to launch their dual-cell HSPA+ network sometime in March, at which point it will be available for use with two models of mobile internet stick also being launched by the carrier. The network will be gradually rolled out, with the preliminary stage bringing coverage to: Greater Vancouver Area, Calgary, Edmonton, Ft. McMurray, Whistler, Camrose, Winnipeg, and the Greater Toronto Area. Downlaod speeds are expected to reach as high as 42Mbps, allowing users to stream HD video, browse websites significantly faster, and more.

Along with the network launch, Telus will also be offering up two different mobile internet sticks that will function on the new network. The first device is the Sierra AC319, with the second being the Huawei e372, both capable of download speeds reaching the network maximum of 42Mbps. No word yet on pricing or exact release dates for either of these internet sticks, but we should see them become available fairly soon.

Mobilicity has recently placed more of a focus on distribution channels, adding two more companies to their list of agreements intended to get their products and services out to more people. Both HMV, and 50 Zellers locations will now carry Mobilicity products and services, which is a nice variety of partners when taking their recent 7-eleven deal into consideration as well. Apparently Zellers locations in Toronto, Vancouver, Edmonton, and Ottawa are already set-up, while HMV locations in Toronto and Ottawa are setting up throughout the holiday season.

We recently let you know that Mobilicity had included information stating the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 would soon be available in a press release regarding the Ottawa network launch, and they've already gone live with it! The X10 runs Android 2.1, and features a 4" touch screen, 8.1MP camera with 720p HD recording, Wi-Fi connectivity, and holds up to 32GB of memory via a microSD card. The Xperia X10 is available now from Mobilicity for $499.99 outright. Great timing, with the company's network going live in Vancouver, Edmonton, and Ottawa last week.

We've seen multiple carriers sign distribution deals with various outlets, and now Mobilicity has joined in. Mobilicity has signed with their first major distribution partner, 7-Eleven, and products will be available at 150 stores throughout Toronto, Vancouver, and Edmonton before the end of the year. Mobilicity has maintained a focus on simplicity and convenience, and state that the availability of their products at 7-Eleven locations "will only add to that convenient customer experience". With their launch in 3 more cities, and this new distribution deal, Mobilicity should see some growth in the near-future.

New entrant Mobilicity has just launched their network in two more major cities today, Edmonton and Vancouver, and has officially confirmed the Ottawa launch will take place tomorrow. Along with the launch comes 100 retail outlets throughout Vancouver, and 20 locations in both Edmonton and Ottawa. This makes 5 cities for Mobilicity and should help them grow!

In addition to the new network launches, Mobilicity has also slimmed down their price plan line-up to just 3 packages. None of the price plans come with data, so customers who wish to get data access will have to subscribe to the new $10 data add-on. The 3 new price plans are:

$25/monthly: Unlimited Local Calling, Text and Picture Messaging, Caller I.D., and Mobilicity to Mobilicity Calling.

$35/monthly: Unlimited Local Calling, Text and Picture Messaging, Caller I.D., Mobilicity to Mobilicity Calling, Voicemail, Call Waiting, Call Forwarding, 3 Way Calling, and Province Wide Long Distance.

$45/monthly: Unlimited Local Calling, Text and Picture Messaging, Caller I.D., Mobilicity to Mobilicity Calling, Voicemail, Call Waiting, Call Forwarding, 3 Way Calling, Province Wide Long Distance, Canadian Long Distance, U.S. Long Distance, and Global Text Messaging.

We expect Mobilicity to launch in another few cities by the end of November, and so it doesn't come as much of a surprise that they have extended their Friends and Family program to November 30th, giving access to this plan to many others in the first couple weeks of launch. The Friends and Family pricing will get customers who know a Mobilicity employee the $45 plan for just $30/month, or the $65 plan for just $40/month. Stay tuned for more information regarding the Edmonton and Vancouver launches!

Many carriers have been exploring distribution options as of lately, looking to expand the retail outlets in which they can sell their products and services, and the latest to join in the effort is WIND Mobile. Now offering 4 of their devices in London Drugs locations in Calgary, Edmonton, and Vancouver, WIND Mobile will surely reach a wider audience, adding to BlockBuster and Valu Mobile as distribution partners. The devices available through London Drugs include the Huawei 1250, Huawei 8100, Nokia 5230 (black), and the Samsung Gravity 2(blue). Apparently 30 London Drugs locations are on board and offering these devices, spanning through the 3 cities listed above.
