TTC Cell Coverage Urged from Rogers, Telus, and Bell After Fatal Stabbing
Torontonians and city officials are once again asking Rogers, Bell, and Telus to provide cell service on the TTC after a teen was stabbed to death
Bell users on the company’s CDMA network can start counting down the days because an internal memo details a nationwide shut down by January 1, 2017, reports MobileSyrup.
Below is the timeline for the shut down:
It’s no surprise Bell would consider shutting down its legacy CDMA network, considering the real money nowadays is with high end smartphones and data usage on faster LTE networks.
Telus already has plans to shut down its CDMA network by 2015, a move to cut costs as it moves customers over to its newer 4G/LTE networks through hardware upgrade opportunities.
