Our neighbor to the north will soon boast its own WiMAX-based WiFi rollout, as Montreal is already set to become the "first Canadian city to deliver wireless Internet and mobile IP telephony to residents." Apparently, Radioactif and Nomad Telecom are joining forcing to deploy the network across the metropolitan area, and it will be made first available to the oh-so-lucky residents of Montreal's Plateau Mont-Royal neighborhood. By 2009, however, the network will blanket nearly 300 square kilometers of Montreal and service "around 90-percent" of its citizens, but those targeted for the first wave can expect the luxury to cost them "under $30 per month" when it launches in September.
