This is a screen shot from my iPhone, grabbed just a little while ago. Whereas, to date, my iPhone could find no network in the Yukon, it now finds 302880.
The “302880” network has been well noted in several blogs and forums to be the identifier for the new Bell/Telus GSM network. So it would appear that the new network is already live in the Yukon.
So based on the story in the Globe and Mail this morning (Bell, Telus confirm iPhone launches), this probably means that iPhones will be available for purchase and use in Whitehorse very, very soon. Like really, friggin soon. The sort of soon that keeps you awake at night.
This is cause for celebration.
