Duetsche Telekom will bring T-Mobile to Canada in 2009, according to unconfirmed reports
Deutsche Telekom has been pre-approved for a financing and protocol agreement which will allow them to introduce T-Mobile to the Canadian market (subject to restrictions in all provinces except Ontario during a 6, 12 and 18 month trial period that expires in 2010), and also pre-approves them for testing roaming, cell tower reception and international data agreements.
The person heading up the Canadian division of Deutsche Telekom will be Canadian, in compliance with the Canadian Business Ethics law
Deutsche Telekom already owns the name T-Mobile in Canada under a US Parent Office international exchange program.
They plan to launch T-Mobile in Canada in 2009.
Currently, as we all know, Rogers is the only GSM game in town. With T-Mobile?s entrance into the Canadian market, data rates are going to plummet quickly. DT also plans to introduce an unlimited BlackBerry plan to the Canadaian market to be priced at $75/month. Basically telling Rogers to go screw themselves.
T-Mobz Canada is set to offer many of the devices we?re used to seeing here in the U.S. like the Sidekick line and T-Mobile?s HTC products.
