    I just got word that Bell customers will no longer be able to roam while they're visiting Iran. This is due to the Government of Canada's sanctions regarding Iran. So if you're going to Iran make sure you get a SIM card and forward your number.

    To conform to Government of Canada sanctions regarding Iran [Special Economic Measures Act (SEMA)], network roaming has been shut down in Iran as of August 13, 2012.
    Thanks tipster!

    This morning I've woke up to a lot of great information with in WIND. First off there is another "resignation"-cough- at WIND that will immensely be beneficial to the Retail Level. It's not a known name around here, but it's a good thing he's gone from the role so the retail teams can be better supported, by a true leader who has industry insight and knowledge. The previous guy's been there since launch and probably responsible for most of the worst hirings.

    Next on to the good stuff, the Q2 update.

    Okay guys, here's the scoop from WIND this morning.

    457,000 Customers
    A net add on of 42,000 added in Q2.
    28,000 Post paid.
    20,000 Galaxy S III's sold from WIND.
    (don't know why this point is impressive but it is, wonder what the other 8000 postpaid devices were )
    461 Points of Distribution (Goal is to have 1000)

    In the last 6 months they added an additional 1200 network sites. (okay..)

    Just got a tip that Bell's HSPA is launching in Manitoba August 1st.

    The roll-out will happen in 2 phases: Phase 1 will include Winnipeg, Oakbank, Stonewall, Selkirk, Steinbach and cover 69% of the Manitoba market while phase 2 will include Brandon and Portage La Prairie and increase the coverage to 74%.



    The coverage will be different from what you get on CDMA plus you can't fall back onto CDMA if you're on HSPA so you won't be able to get any calls/data/SMS when you leave the coverage area.

    Thanks tipster!
