Wow! This is GREAT NEWS! The iPhone 3GS is available from Telus Mobility NEXT THURSDAY November 5th! Not only that! It also means that the long awaited 3G+ network has also arrived! Do you have any idea what that means? COMPETITION! YES! Those of us who are stuck with Rogers and its smaller counterpart, Fido can now have a choice and get our phones from Telus Mobility (and Bell Mobility coming soon)! Rogers Wireless no longer has a stranglehold on us and we can jump ship to Telus and Bell Mobility (which piggy backs off Telus in the West)! Think of all those great smartphones that we previously only can get at Rogers or Fido now available through Telus! Woohoo! I’m celebrating! This is a HUGE thing for us in Canada and with the expected arrival of new entrants in 2010 (Wind Mobile, Dave Wireless, etc), I am very hopeful that it will mean better choices and selection and better customer service with a lower cost (especially for data). Let’s keep our fingers crossed.
Check out the news releases below:

TELUS offers customers broadest coverage, fastest technology, and exciting new devices
VANCOUVER, Oct. 26 /CNW/ – TELUS today announced that it will launch Canada’s largest 3G+ network* on November 5, 2009.
The new next generation wireless network is the latest enhancement to TELUS’ multi-network mobile strategy, offering customers the technology for increased wireless data download speeds of up to 21 megabits per second, access to a world class selection of compelling mobile devices and international roaming service to more than 200 countries. This initiative also ensures a smoother transition to fourth generation (4G) wireless technology known as long term evolution (LTE).
“This is a great development for TELUS and consumers in Canada,” said Darren Entwistle, TELUS president and CEO. “Our new wireless network enables advanced speeds and services for more than 30 million Canadians based on the most innovative wireless technology available today. More importantly, it offers Canadians more choice and timely access to almost all major mobile devices in the world across TELUS’ three leading wireless networks.”

TELUS will offer a number of exciting new devices from HTC, Huawei, LG, Nokia, RIM, Samsung, and Sierra Wireless in time for the holidays, including some on an exclusive basis.
This landmark network development for TELUS ends the monopoly access to iconic devices in Canada’s wireless industry – for the first time giving consumers choice in service providers, smartphones and rate plans.
TELUS’ existing wireless network portfolio includes Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) technology that powers Canada’s largest third generation (3G) High Speed wireless network and TELUS’ Mike network with its industry leading Push-to-Talk capability and business service. TELUS plans to support both of these leading networks for the foreseeable future, providing TELUS customers the full choice of wireless solutions that best suits their needs.
