Canada-wide wireless broadband

Bell Canada and Rogers Communications announced a joint venture to create a Canada-wide wireless broadband network that will reach two-thirds of Canadians by 2008. The companies will pool their wireless broadband spectrum holdings to build and manage the cast network under the name, Inukshuk Internet. Rogers Communications and Bell Canada will equally fund the initial $200 million network deployment costs over a three-year period. The companies expect the network to cover more than 40 cities and about 50 unserved rural and remote communities across Canada. Inukshuk plans to forge a roaming agreement with US-based Clearwire, which is building a similar wireless broadband network in the US.
