    Yeah I noticed that when I read the results earlier as well. So weird! I guess they figure they already have enough spectrum currently so 600 MHz isnít necessary for them to compete?

    Awesome! Why are they re-locating the tower exactly? Thatís great that itís going to provide better coverage for your neighbourhood though - a huge win for Rogers customers.
