Smaller urban and rural regions of the country can expect to see an increase in competition and the introduction of new advanced wireless data services more quickly than thought following a recently signed resale and roaming agreement between two of the country’s largest mobile wireless operators. A landmark agreement between Bell Mobility and Telus Mobility will eliminate the need for each carrier to invest hundreds of millions of dollars to expand networks into each other’s traditional operating territory. Both carriers expect to save upwards of $500 million over the 10-year life of the accord.
