As of November 13th, 2013, Telus is offering 9.99$ unlimited wireless home phone (with puchase of a 30$ adapter). To be clear this is basically the service that uses the wrireless network (with sim card) but connects to POTS handests and phones.

Fido and Rogers have been offering this service (at the same price) for 6 months or more. When will Koodo be offering the 10$ home phone?

Rogers and Fido only offer it if you are not inside of the Rogers home phone footprint. I have all Rogers residential services and they said I'm not eligible (trust me I tried) because I can get their wired home phone service already. I'm assuming Telus has similar restrictions.

Koodo doesn't even do internet sticks or data-only plans for tablets; wireless home phone is a relatively newer service so I don't see them having it anytime soon.

Fido, I believe, does not come with that restriction.

Well I'm gonna call them and try to get it, then. I have a Fido account for my dad so I could just add it to that instead of paying 40 bucks to Rogers for something we don't use a whole lot.

Humberto is correct, Fido does not care. We have Fido wireless home phone (over cellular), and we definitely are in the "wired" home phone footprint.

The post i saw was for Toronto area. But I would not be surprised if it was more widespread now.

This wireless home phone is 100% better than cheap Voip. No QOS rules, no bandwidth issues, call quality almost as good as landline, for 5$ more a month.

Real alternative would be voip.ms, but you need to know how to setup an ATA, and it is still voip, just better than majicjack or nettalk. Wireless home phone is plug and talk.
