700mhz lte when?


Any idea when Telus/Koodo is deploying 700mhz lte? I think Industry Canada said it'd be deployed by April

Companies who acquired licences for these high-quality wireless airwaves will be able to start deploying it in mid-April... At a minimum, companies that acquire 700 MHz spectrum licences must deploy to 20–50 percent of the population within 10 years, depending on the area. They can start in mid-april, but carriers do have a 10 year limit

So does Koodo/Telus not have a specific plan yet?

Nothing really has been announced. I doubt carriers are going to be breaking ground and installing these new towers on the first day
