The big 3 is no more… or at least soon. Today, Mobilicity officially announced that they will be providing services in Toronto and later on Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, and Ottawa. Mobilicity will offer 6 different plans starting from $15 which include Unlimited Text, Unlimted Mobilicity to Mobilicity talk, and Caller ID to $65 with Unlimited Everything including Data. 6 different phones are also being released including the famous BlackBerry Bold 9700. Mobilicity will be running on AWS bands, similar to WIND Mobile’s bands. So unfortunately, if you have any Rogers, Bell, or Telus 3G HSPA phones. It won’t work.
Unfortunately, like WIND mobile. Their services are still limited, so roaming on other carriers will occur and cost you $0.20 cents a minute when doing so. If you travel a lot, this wouldn’t be the best carrier to go with as of now. We’ll have to wait for them to offer services to other cities “later this year”.
