CDMA/1EVDO vs GSM/EDGE in Canada (Bell vs Rogers) CASE STUDIES
:? Hi everyone, I am looking for any case studies that might be publicly available regarding real world implementation of GSM/GPRS across Canada.

We are currently making a decision on going with either BELL or ROGERS as our primary carrier. We have LOTS of devices and are a North American wide company, the problem is we have had mixed reactions to both carriers and we want to ensure we make the right decision.

As much as ROGERS is great for international travel (GSM) I have noticed their coverage is mediocre at best (at least in western Canada), where BELL has the market with CDMA and the coverage is exceptional.

If anyone can provide me with some case study material (preferably non biased as both BELL and ROGERS feel their service is superior) that would be greatly appreciated.

We had the same problem with our few international travelers... Bell now have the 8830 that is quad band so it can be a good bet if you have the budget...

I am still looking for any information anyone can provide.
