    Correct on both points. Bell and Shaw swapped A block with G block, and the subordinate licenses were approved as well. With the exception of 3-45, 3-46, 3-48 tiers, Telus can deploy 40 MHz of 7C in Alberta.

    Backhaul won't be a limitation at such low speeds. I would focus on improving your SINR first.

    I managed to get 566 Mbps indoors with 75MHz on a OP6. I posted it in the Telus speedtest section some time ago.

    LTE (and 5G) knowledge sharing

    I was driving along Airport Rd (in the GTA) earlier this evening and noticed a large number of small grey boxes mounted on light poles. There was only what appeared to be a single wire connected to each of them, and there weren’t any base stations in site. Each unit had 4 external antennas...2 pointing directly downwards and 2 pointing directly upwards. We were driving southbound when I noticed them. There were a lot...mounted on almost every 3rd pole, from Bovaird southbound to past Dixie. Does anyone know if these are new Bell small cells? Coverage/speed on my Telus phone while driving along Airport Rd was exactly the same as it was prior to noticing these units.

    Sounds like they're small cells. If you have pictures, I can confirm.

    I wasn’t able to take any pics. I’ll try to do that in the next couple of days and post back here soon.

    Any idea why the ertyu cell tower map site shows Bell sites with small channel widths? For example, Bell sites are shown with multiple LTE B5 channels as 2.5MHz wide instead of 5MHz. B2 channels are shown as multiple 5MHz wide instead of 20MHz, and B4 shown as multiple 10MHz and multiple 5MHz instead of 15MHz. By comparison, Rogers sites are shown with their full widths - i.e. B2 as 15MHz, B7 as 20MHz, etc.

    No idea, I find that annoying too. It wasn't like this in the past for Bell's channel bandwidths. My guess is Bell modified the format of the data they send to ISED.

    This could have the potential of disrupting Bellus’ 5G plans if the Canadian gov is influenced by the Trump admin, which would force Bellus to switch to Ericsson or Nokia equipment...

    Typical politics. If anything, Cisco should be banned from Canada, as they have had 5 hidden backdoors discovered this year alone, with very likely link to NSA. Huawei has had 0. Huawei has a large R&D precense in Canada as well, so I doubt those Canadian employees are putting in secret backdoors.

    Either way, Huawei is already used for 5G by Telus, along with 4g and 3g. I believe Bell is heading more towards Nokia for 5g, but not too sure.

    Unlike the US, Canada does not use LTE networks for public safety, so no concern there.

    Interesting. Thanks zivan. Curious though...if Bell and Telus use different vendors, would there be any challenges in continuing their MOCN arrangement?

    There are providers worldwide that use multi vendor MOCN in a similar setup Bell/Telus do. It definitely wont be as easy as going with one vendor, but its not impossible.

    I believe certain parts of Bell/Telus are already on Nokia (Quebec city or somewhere?).

    Bell uses Nokia in eastern Ontario and Quebec. BellMTS uses Ericsson in Manitoba. The rest of the Bell/Telus/Sasktel RAN is Huawei. Basic inter-operability is fine between vendors, as the interfaces are standardized. Regular handovers will work fine. Some advanced features between eNodeBs will only work if both eNBs are from the same vendor.

    My personal opinion is that Huawei will not be banned in Canada.
