So let's say you are the largest mobile carrier in the U.S. with over 100 million customers, and you are looking to grow the business. What do you do? If you're Verizon, you head north and look at making inroads into Canada; according to a published report in Canada on Monday, Verizon has held "exploratory talks" with WIND Mobile...

"That would enable Verizon to bid for spectrum in the country and build up a fourth major mobile operator in Canada by offering faster service and lower prices."

For those people who are in the US and familiar with Verizon, do you do think they can offer us Canadians faster service and lower prices?

Yes they can. In fact they are the ones that have the most reliable network for both data and voice.. So for them to do the same in Canada will be easy for them since they have the capital and the know how to get it done..

I my self have AT&T instead, but both AT&T and Verizon are the best at what they do overall on the USA, so either Verizon gets the deal, or AT&T does, any of those two would be a great thing for all the WIND customers.. :)

I don't know about price because Verizon is the most expensive here in the states but no one can deny that their service is good across the country.

As ferney said the most reliable is certainly correct. I have both Verizon and AT&T. AT&T offers better voice but reliable data, verizon absolutely owns.

This is a dream come true if it happens. The largest Mobile Operators in the US, best service and has the most advance infrastructure. Time for Wind to crush those greedy competitors. Hope this deal goes through.
