TELUS does not have sufficient AWS spectrum in some service areas such as Toronto, for LTE deployment with the downlink up to 75Mbps. Under the current configuration, it needs 20MHz of spectrum to do so and TELUS currently only holds or utilizes just 10MHz. Same goes with Bell in some markets too. Just do a drive test with industrial analyzers or devices capable of showing the crucial field test parameters like frequency channel numbers, bandwidth, etc. Both Bell and TELUS will not disclose too much or flatly deny about it the pooled spectrum arrangement. (Similarly, MVNOs and newer carriers are not allowed to tell the public that Rogers is their network / roaming provider.)
Just treat it like our cars... I have got mine, you have got yours, he has got his. We may have different makes, models and colours, we may even fill up with different fuel but all cars can seat 5. We car pool together and it does not matter which car we hop on or who is driving everyday as long as we can agree on the schedule. Mary wants to join the carpool but does not own a car yet. She will eventually get one and adds to the car pool.
