Ok, so there is a lot to cover. My meeting was very short (30 mins maybe), because I would miss the last bus if I didnt leave. But I got most of it covered for you guys!!
1. Expansion: TOMORROW the press release goes out! But here is a scoop:
i. GTA: Oakville, Burlington, Hamilton and beyond. On the East: Oshawa, Pickering, Whitby, Ajax. I forgot what else was there.
ii. Ottawa: Barrhaven, Kanata and some other areas I forgot.
iii. Edmonton: Ft. Saskatchewan, Sherwood Park, Leduc, Airport, Terwelligar / Windermere and North of St. Albert
iii. Calgary: Didnt ask
iv Vancover: White Rock and east and boundary bay. I am not too familiar with vancouver map, so wait till tomorrow!
Well, these towers have been planned, and I guess the expansion starts soon!
2. Femtocell: Testing now, coming End Aug / Early September! Bonus: Signal boosters!
3. EU/Asia Roaming: Direct agreements / cheaper rates coming end summer!
4. 21Mbps HSPA+:
i. Towers have been upgraded, backend upgraded. Some work still remains on the gateway / backend pipes. Mobilicity is also working on getting their own IPs instead of using Allstream IPs.
ii. A gateway has been placed in vancouver, but the hardware isnt ready yet. Its being worked on!
iii. Tiered Data plans: IMPORTANT!!
The 21 Mbps plans wont be throttled like what they do presently. https will be fully freed. Bittorrent will be fully OPEN!! However, usage caps like wind will be implemented. By caps I mean 21 Mbps till xx GB then throttled. Example: $10 for 100 MB / 15 mins (present system) or $30 for 20 GB or 30 GB unthrottled etc etc. I was told that the plan wasnt made yet, but the throttle caps will be huge, and bittorrent will be open.
More to come after I eat and take some rest!
