Motorola Milestone now available on Canada’s largest HSPA+ network

Canadian Android fans can purchase their first Android 2.0 phone now that the Motorola Milestone (aka Droid) is on sale with TELUS. Customers can pick up the device for $199 with 3 year agreement or pay $599 for full price.

Telus just launched their HSPA+ network in November which now covers 93% of the Canadian population. The network offers theoretical peak download speeds of 21.6 Mbps, but a device like the Droid (HSPA 7.2) will see typical speeds that range from 4-6 Mbps (download) and 2-4 Mbps (upload). This is the same type of network that T-Mobile USA will launch in mid 2010 so I’m a little jealous Canada gets these blazing fast mobile speeds first.

If you live in Canada and pick this phone up, let us know how it performs on the Telus 3G+ network.

    The problem I heard is that since they don’t have a GSM network, the phone loses connectivity instead of dropping to EDGE like with most companies.

    I’m on Rogers and considering paying full price for it and unlock it.

    Don’t buy a milestone, the booloader is locked down, which means no custom roms…

      That is indeed a good reason to give this a pass.

    Yes, it will be interesting to see whether the Canadian Milestone suffers from the same audio-playing flaw as the European version (you can’t listen to music on the move without the sound skipping)
