Cellphone users are routinely hit with the buzz words “fastest” and “most reliable” when it comes to wireless networks.
So who has Canada’s fastest wireless service? Is it Rogers, Bell or Telus?
Technology watchers say consumers will have a hard time telling the difference, despite the claims each network makes.
“Broadly speaking in a dense urban area … you are going to tend to get about the same speed on each network,” said technology analyst Duncan Stewart.
If all conditions are perfect — there is no rain, no one else is on the network and you have the latest device — you will get top speed, said Stewart, director of research and analysis at DSAM Consulting.
Nevertheless, Telus is suing Rogers in an attempt to force its competitor to abandon long-standing claims to having Canada’s fastest and most reliable network.
Rogers has said it stands behind its claims.
