    Public Mobile in Ottawa?

    I've noticed a couple of new cell antenna sites in Ottawa that do not belong to any of the cell phone companies currently operating in the area. Initially I thought they might have been Mobilicity towers but they're not.

    What does a typical Public Mobile site look like? Are there any unique features that would differentiate Public's setups from the rest?
    The setups I've seen are on top of buildings and look like they were installed in a rush with cables not properly fastened to the poles supporting the antennas.

    They either belong to Videotron or to Public; I suspect the latter.

    I don't believe Public has spectrum outside Montreal and Toronto. It could very well be Videotron, because Gatineau includes Ottawa as a local area, so Videotron would probably be allowed to deploy in Ottawa.
    Want to learn more about how LTE works?

    I'm fairly certain that Public bought spectrum covering the Windsor - Quebec City corridor.

    The site you spotted was probably Videotron. They'll be launching in Ottawa soon.

    He said Oshawa not Ottawa, which makes more sense, since it means they are expanding in the GTA
