Canadian Carriers Agree on WiFi Interoperability

Canadian wireless carriers i.e. Bell Mobility, Telus Mobility, Microcell Solutions and Rogers AT&T Wireless indicated recently that they had reached an inter-carrier agreement to establish interoperability in public areas where users tap into networks using the wireless fidelity, or WiFi, standard.

The Canadian Wireless Telecommunications Association (CWTA), which facilitated the agreement, said the carrier quartet would likely have standards developed by the end of this year, allowing seamless roaming by early 2004. The CWTA called the agreement a North American first. Though a similar agreement was signed by carriers in France six weeks ago, not too much has happened yet in the United States - bringing major carriers together.

MobileInfo Comments and Advisory: We would encourage US carriers to work together and not just individually to make this happen. They can not drag their feet by quoting one obstacle or another. Where there is a will, there is a way.
