Bell confirms HSPA for Nov. 4, iPhone to follow

updated 03:00 pm EST, Mon November 2, 2009

Bell HSPA a day ahead of Telus

Bell today confirmed that its promised HSPA+ 3G network will become available on November 4th. Supporting recent leaks, the 21Mbps network will launch just a day ahead of its Telus equivalent and should come with multiple phones and modems ready on the same day. Roaming deals will also be in effect immediately and should let Bell users roam on AT&T in the US as well as in most other countries.

It's believed through Electronista sources that the iPhone 3G and 3GS will also be available on the 4th. The tip is supported both by Telus' plans to sell iPhones just a day later as well as by leaked plans. Rate data is often the last information to be released before an iPhone launch in a given country.

Other high-profile devices announced by Bell for launch or soon afterwards will include the BlackBerry Bold 9700, a Novatel U998 USB modem for HSPA+ service and the MiFi 2372 mobile router.
