    Buckingham Quebec

    I just noticed on WIND's coverage map that Buckingham, Quebec just outside Ottawa, Ontario is in the future coverage area. Is this because it is SO close to the border that they can erect towers near the border and cover that small community or does WIND have spectrum in Quebec? I thought they got zero spectrum in Quebec?

    I believe that part of Ottawa's spectrum for Wind is the Gatineau and surrounding area. This doesn't mean that We'll see Wind in Montreal anytime soon unfortunately. When Vidéotron puts up towers in Gatineau, they may put some up in Ottawa too as that's part of the spectrum (like a fringe area I guess).

    I guess as long as it's in Ontario it will work. Just like other places along the US border with Canada.

    Having a licence to put up towers in Ottawa includes the Outaouais region too (And vice versa). This is the reason why WIND is allowed to put up towers in Gatineau which also would allow Videotron to put up towers in Ottawa.

    Interesting, thank guys. The more I read about the Ottawa area the more I seem to understand that they have a bit of a "capital region" that encompasses fringe areas of Ontario and Quebec.

    Don't keep reading about the region. You'll eventually find out that the area is run by mostly morons (at least on the Ottawa site)

    That sounds like a discussion for an entirely different forum
