    Vancouver to Mobilicity: WHERE ARE YOU?!

    I am a fan of the new entrants and only hope they can build up their businesses to become strong contenders. (I havent switched due to financial constraints and frankly, won't until the iPhone is available in an AWS flavour).

    But I'm really wondering what is up with Mobilicity. I recently got asked to go apply to be a store manager, but their presence is nowhere to be seen, theres no advertisements, and from the sounds of it, there's ZERO growth in Toronto and they seem to be just happy doing nothing.

    Can anyone tell me what Mobilicity's expansion plans are for the country??

    Mobilicity likes to launch discretely.

    During the Toronto launch, No one knew the exact details until stores actually opened their doors.
    "well what's the point of knowing all this stuff about phones if you can't use it to impress girls at parties???"

    I haven't looked lately, but before the Toronto lauch the best place to looks for signs of somehting imminent was the "jobs" page on the website. Mobilicity works primarily through dealers (only one corporate store in Toronto to the best of my knowledge) but if dealers are hiring they have likely been told it's coming soon.

    Got a little lost in Central City mall (Surrey Central Skytrain area) and saw this out of the corner of my eye. Nothing's built yet, but its gutted and ready to go.

    That's good news. Surrey suggests they have good coverage too.
    The word 'Pentaband' means '5 Bands', from the Greek word 'pente' meaning '5'. For a phone to be pentaband it has to support 5 bands. If the phone has AWS support, it doesn't automatically mean that it is pentaband.

    Don't send me PMs for questions that can be asked publicly.

    Looking at the Industry Canada Web Site they have some type of 38 GHz license (5104359) that would indicate that at least they are at least looking at the Vancouver area... 38 GHz would be used for linking sites... I also see something for Calgary?
    Too many years, too many phones, too many plans.

    Today on Craigslist I saw a job ad for an assistant store manager with Mobilicity and the ad mentioned they will be launching by year end.

    This is the ad in question. Richmond & Surrey are both good indications as far as coverage goes. It means they've covered way more than just downtown.

    Had an hour long conversation with one of the contracted tower builders today. Mobilicity is actively building but there's lots of work to do. He also does WIND, Telus and Rogers tower work. On a positive note, he ditched Bell and signed up on WIND today! Got lots of juicy info out of him...lol.

    FIDO $60/10GB + 5 hours unlimited data
    WIND $15 AITF unlimited data (10GB full speed)

    Glad to hear that something's happening, Mobilicity's tight lipped policy is a bit unnerving, but it seems to work.

    Good news guys, Mobilicity has backhaul towers up/registered in Vancouver!
    Go here: http://www.jrmy.net/tafl/
    Search for: "data & audio"
    Type in a Vancouver postal code and enter a distance of about 100 km.
    You will then see the locations. Keep in mind these are backhaul only towers...however, most usually become cell sites later on for practical purposes.

    Keep in mind these are probably just the core backend sites used to send traffic around the region. They in no way represent a final map of cell tower locations. They will probably start building out from these sites once they get the core Vancouver network set up.

    I don't see it, I only see 280 MORNINGSIDE AVE, SCARBOROUGH as the furthest East Mobilicity has equipment (and it is an actual cell phone tower).
