Interesting. The press release certainly makes it sound good for everyone, but I wonder if there are any former TBayTel users who previously left for Rogers due to a dispute who would be upset by this.

Will this affect contract status for those being transitioned?

It's not all Rogers Wireless subscribers; Prepaid customers are not affected by this.

From the FAQ:
Q. I am a current prepaid customer. Will I be switched over to TBayTel?
A. No, Prepaid customers are not being switched over at this time.

Looks like Tbaytel is buying all the DMTS wireless customers too. They just made an offer but it has to be approved by Dryden city council

As of December 15th, Bell Mobility will cease offering service to customers in Northwestern Ontario except for the Highway 17 corridor. I am guessing, but with TBayTel buying DMTS and their partnership with Rogers has left Bell without a partner. I would assume that they don't see an economic benefit to expanding their network beyond corridor service.

They will still offer service in Thunder Bay and towns along Hwy 17 but not areas off the 17 corridor. I will need to go with Rogers for service in Red Lake

Bell waived the $600 early termination fee so I was able to port out my number and sign up with Rogers. At least I'll have service where I need it.

I have often thought, going back to the analog days, that Rogers & Bell and now Telus, should share a network in remote areas, to keep the costs down. Wind, Mobilicity and Videotron could do the same to improve their coverage area too.
