    1. Just go ahead and port. Don't need to talk to Bell at all. They should then bill you the balance remaining.

    LTE does everything except voice calls, until VoLTE launches.
    It handles texts (including MMS), and does it far faster than 3G at that.

    I doubt they'd launch 13 without VoLTE, but even if they...

    You claim to have $700 worth of roaming charges over months and SIM is not even in your phone?
    Why do you continue to let the service run and continue to rack up roaming?

    I whipped up a quick visualization of the 3 main frequency types in use/being deployed by freedom in most (not all) regions.

    Notice that B4 (AWS1) LTE is fully within B66 (AWS1+AWS3) LTE. And that...

    Yeah, I have no idea why northern ON residents would pick them over Koodo, PM, etc
    East residents, not much competition, so they pay what they have to.

    To these people, if you have anything short of a horrific experience, you must be a fanboy, troll or shill.
    I just shrug and ignore such stupidity.
    Yes, I've had such terrible service that I've...

    Are you sure it wasn't in reference to world traveller? (which does not include roaming prepaid, it just reduces the per-use amount)

    I was surprised to find out a couple months ago that Eastlink actually has used their spectrum. They have quite a large number of towers in Northern ON - check here and turn the filter on 'others' to...

    As it's written, sirtate is correct.
    The rates listed in the table are new as of now, and apply retroactively to 2015.

    Eastlink also (oddly, IMO, as it's so isolated from the rest of their business) has quite a build out in Sudbury, Timmins, North Bay
    That would suit each well to have a roaming agreement, at least...

    Worked fine for me at work in a basement meeting. However, that was at 3pm EST so might have been fixed by then.

    I would assume it's phone plans only at this time.

    Either way, doesn't really matter. You either have a grandfathered plan and already know the answer by...

    I'm not saying you're wrong.
    I'm saying the rogers network should be far better than it is, given the number of cell sites and the 20-year head start.

    Without knowing exact locations, coverage has been good anywhere I've been in Ajax & Oshawa. Except inside the Oshawa hospital. Terrible signal. But Fido's not much better.

    Band 7 is a higher frequency than all the rest (2500-2700MHz) = poorer penetration.
    Sheytoon is correct.
    From best to worst for penetration:

    Probably true.
    However, it will greatly help the 4th carriers a as well.

    Wifi calling likely counts as 'home' for the ratio. Use that when at home/in wifi range and use the away roaming when not.

    They are very closely related technologies and are part of the same hardware platform on freedom's network.
    There's a good chance it will only be available on wifi certified phones.
