Rogers, Bell, Telus launched 5G networks across Canada in 2020, with further coverage spreading across Canada this year. Videotron is rolling out 5G coverage throughout Quebec and Sasktel will launch 5G services in Saskatchewan on Decebmer 15, 2021. Freedom Mobile will not likely launch 5G service anytime soon since its parent company, Shaw Communications, may soon be acquired by Rogers.
Samsung and Apple offer 5G-capable smartphones that work on all Canadian 5G networks. Motorola, LG and Google also offer affordable 5G options. Non-carrier and out-of-market 5G smartphones like the OnePlus 8 Pro are not supported.
There are currently four 5G wireless providers in Canada: Rogers Wireless, Bell Mobility, Telus Mobility and Videotron. A fifth carrier, Sasktel, is launching a 5G network throughout Saskatchewan shortly.
Rogers went live with its first 5G New Radio (NR) network in downtown Vancouver, Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal in early 2020, while Bell and Telus activated their 5G service the following June in Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Toronto and Montreal. There are no plans to charge extra for 5G access… besides the need to buy a new phone. Videotron announced its 5G service in late 2020 with coverage limited to Montreal. It will expand over the next year throughout the province, but it’s unclear when customers will be able to use 5G on nationwide partner networks.
Updated November 18, 2021: SaskTel 5G service will launch on December 15, 2021. SaskTel is focussing on improved rural coverage throughout Saskatchewan, and installing new 5G cell towers is part of that strategy.
Why is it propaganda?
*It says that Huawei is abandoning Canada and its hope for 5G technology.
What’s the truth? Huawei wants badly to be part of Canada’s 5G networks but so far, Canada has deferred making a decision.
It’s not Huawei who wants to leave Canada. Huawei is being forced to leave Canada.
