Shaw Wireless Rumor (From Cable Installation Guy)
I was told much to suprise that Shaw Wirless isn't going to use UMTS/HSPA/GSM/LTE/or CDMA. Rather, it will operate on a Shaw Wi-Fi. This was told to me by a cable guy. Don't get my stated on Wi-Fi, it has little if no range and isn't nearly as reliable as concrete mobile technologies like those offered by the GSMA. I don't know if this guy was making it up but he seemed very certain. But I can guarantee those in the know about mobile technology wouldn't use a Wi-Fi based phone if they had a gun to thier head. And since Wi-Fi mobile outdoor proliferation is next to nothing the phones offered are going to be garbage. This is a nice way of getting out of paying spectrum auction fees are Shaw can sell the spectrum they bought to hungry new entrants and the old guard big three looking for more AWS for LTE before the 700Mhz auction. Any thruth in this?
