Great to see Ottawa finally getting turned on.

Next Up: Vancouver then after that nobody knows (apparently SWO).

If I wasn't locked into rogers for another 1.5 years, I'd be all over them coming to SWO. At least by the time my contract is up they might have some good coverage around here

The Wind website has posted the Ottawa coverage map. Orleans and Kanata are not active yet but should be in the next month or two. Gatineau has pretty good coverage though.

Hmm, no go for me for now, or even when Orleans is covered. Time to call Rogers retentions, I guess and see what I can do...

Well I just signed up with Wind. I bought a new Nexus One last week and went to the Wind kiosk on Rideau yesterday. I went with the $15 chat plan and $35 infinite mobile plan. My account was activated and my phone was set-up in about 30 minutes. I also had my Rogers number ported - but that has still not gone thru.

So far so good, although I've been using the phone primarily for data so I can't really comment on the call quality. Data speeds have been very good in my areas - downtown (inside and outside) and Vanier. I'll try some other parts of the city on the weekend.
