The iPhone’s future is now friendly

The $1 BIllion shared network that Telus and Bell have installed will reportedly allow them to carry the Apple iPhone on their respective networks.

The eagerly anticipated High Speed Packet Access (HSPA) network was scheduled to be completed for February 2010, but the early launch will allow the two cell giants to prepare for the time of the year that sees the most new wireless sales.  Neither company would comment about any upcoming deals with Apple, but the promise of ending Roger’s monopoly on the smartphone must be top of mind for all three companies.  The Globe and Mail is even predicting that Telus and Bell will start selling the phones next month.

Bell and Telus will be looking to acquire new and existing iPhone fanatics, while Rogers should be planning ways to provide better pricing/service to the smartphone audience.

More provider options should result in a more competitive environment for those of us that have sold our souls for an iPhone!
