    Any plans for TBaytel to fill in the area between Longlac and Hearst ? Looks like Bellus may be beating TBaytel on that area of Hwy 11.
    Similar for Rogers - looks like Kapuskasing is still 2G only and large gaps up there.

    Too bad you aren't a betting woman

    Two weeks ago I phoned and spoke with a customer service representative regarding the future plans for expanding the TBayTel network to the communities of Pickle Lake and Mishkeegogamang. TBayTel cell phones only work up north (on the Knet tower system) or south of 11/17
    Bell Canada has had cellular and data coverage in both of these communities since approximately Dec 15, 2013. Will TBayTell be coming to town?

    Rumour has it that Pickle Lake has a site being built. I hate to admit its Bell which seems a strange place for Bell to deploy being 6 hours north of Thunder Bay.
    As for NWO coverage Tbaytel is the Best Choice and in most cases the Only Choice

    Fast forwarding a few months and Bell is in Pickle Lake -- Bell has LTE in Dryden and TBayTel is dropping behind -- quick speed test (after all mobile phones have become all about data) Bell in Dryden 12mb/sec and TBayTel less than 1 mb/sec -- yes network saturation is a real issue now with TBay Tel - Sioux Lookout speeds are very slow as well -- I guess my question is how does TBayTel cope with this -- I guess when Bell turns on their service that will help but it's a shame for it to happen that way - does TBayTel have the deep pockets to keep up - LTE was available when they fired up their new service with the break from Bell - I know it's about money but why establish a service that was already being replaced by new technology -- was Rogers the bad guy or was it TBayTel cutting corners to save some money -- now when I'm in Thunder Bay I use my Bell based phone instead of my TBayTel phone just because of performance -- I'm looking for the deals to come out once Bell goes active here so I can dump my winnipeg number and get a local number for $49/month --

    Most likely - Bell doesn't have any users up there (yet?) so capacity isn't an issue.
    Looks like Wawa is getting a capacity upgrade (now that Bell has deployed there).

    I'm curious as to when Highway 11 will be completed.

    Exactly the point I'm trying to make -- bandwidth is our biggest problem - has anyone else noticed (except in hotly contested areas) the phone companies are starting to offer very good calling and texting plans but are screwing consumers on the data -- with LTE and smart phones that are data vacuums to offer anything less than 2 gigs is laughable - 6 gigs should be standard and I see most of the american carriers are now offering 10 gigs - a smart phone will use 1 gig just sitting on your dresser updating its self - how many horrified people out their who don't understand how a cell phone works much less how to restrict data and understand what functions and apps are going to cause overages and thus outrageous extra charges -- my daughter is a good example -- unchecked her data usage would be 8 to 10 gigs a month -- I consider myself a fairly heavy user and might use 5 gigs between 2 plans and a total of 11 gigs -- but 8 to 10 gigs holy crap and on what - well I finally found out -- gaming -- biggest offender -- now I can deal with it but when wifi is falling behind LTE for performance no wonder --

    I guess this is all part of living in part of Ontario no one knows about -- which in many ways is a good thing -

    Looks like Bell has deployed LTE in some of its northwestern Ontario locations (besides Thunder Bay).
    If TBayTel wants to be competitive, it'll have to offer LTE as well, or HPSA+ at reduced rates.
