Oh Canada! Bell and Telus to offer iPhone 3GS in November?
Bell Mobility President Wade Oosterman would not talk specifically about the iPhone, but he did say, "We have a very strong lineup of manufacturers." He went on to say, "We're goingto expand the options for Canadians. Those that require, for example,international roaming now have a viable alternative." There is no doubt that both Canadian operators are counting on the iPhone to turn things around. For Bell, times are tough and the carrier is desperately seeking new customers. In the second quarter, Bell added 45,000 new accounts while Telus grew by 111,000 members and current iPhone seller Rogers added 142,000 new accounts for the three month period. For Telus, offering Apple's handset should help it reverse a recent decline in average revenue per subscriber, a figure that dropped 7% last quarter.
