Rogers to launch a UMA service
The Canadian wireless provider Rogers might launch a UMA service on May 6. According to the source, the service will be called Rogers Home Calling Zone and at first, it will be available for non-business customers. The first devices compatible with the service will most likely be the BlackBerry Pearl 8120
and a lower-end Nokia model. The expected price for the WiFi/UMA access is $15 per month for local unlimited calling and $20 per month for unlimited long distance (within Canada), combined with "competitive" international long distance rates. Another Canadian carrier, Fido is said to also be getting a similar service, in the same timeframe.
