Mobilicity now operates on both old HSPA and the new Rogers 3G network

Mobilicity is now working on both the old Mobilicity HSPA network and the Rogers 3G network

I downloaded a map from Here to test the data and got
250MB downloaded in 9 minutes (~3.7mbps)
410MB downloaded in 18 minutes (~3.0mbps)

The speed test showed 2mbps down/1mbps up

Edit:
Clarification, we are still restricted to the limited zones but Rogers increased it as I'm getting 4 bars in Orleans (Ottawa) where before I had no reception at all

Try the CND ROAMING, once I connect to it it shows Mobilicity without Roaming icon and 3G data works.

It didn't charge me roaming fees so far (I only have $1 left anyway)

Is that with the "Light" data plan or the regular data plan?

There are a lot of threads about other more expensive carriers and people stayed away from Mobilicity before due to coverage with this new network I'm getting coverage where I had poor or no reception before

I too am a Mobilicity user. So does that mean that their first stage is to have both networks going in parallel, then they'll drop the Mobilicity side later?

I got an e-mail from Rogers/Mobilicity saying I had to upgrade my phone to be able to use their new Rogers network, which I did. That implies that they're not going to use the older Mobilicity signal (is that HSPA?).

You're getting 2mbps now? What were you getting before?

I wonder if there's a fixed date when Rogers will drop the old Mobilicity network. I'll be there are still some that don't have compatible phones with the newer Rogers network. Under the deal with the Federal Gov't, they were obligated to carry the old Mobilicity user base with them and not drop them. So that's why they offered phone upgrade deals (some at no cost), etc.

The big thing for me at least would be the coverage, If they get coverage like Public Mobile did, this would be smokin

I also get much better coverage now, thanks for confirming that they are now using Rogers' 3G network. I work in an office building that's a lot of steel and concrete and previously had no signal....was waiting for this day!

Damn that's faster than Wind.
I can't break 1/.1 with them.

Good thing I'm still on a $25 plan.

if you are on Rogers can you sign up with Mobilicity and bring your old phone?

Just today, my calls dropped in downtown Calgary once entered +15 walkway. I hope to get some better reception soon, or I will be porting out.

Question should I move to mobile city now. Their $55 plan seems amazing. Can anyone explain to me if their network now being on Rogers is good?

I'm still getting 1down/2up. However, I have reception where I did not have previously, which for me is a HUGE bonus.
