bell canada was so reliable, once upon a time, that if you picked up a phone and didn't get a dialtone immediately (i.e. less than 1 second), most people assumed the phone was dead. not getting a dialtone, immediately, was something that only happened on vacation, in third-world countries.
but now, i can keep trying and retrying a call for 5-10 minutes, and never get through. (even though my iphone is showing 4 or 5 bars!)
among other things, i use a cell phone for emergencies, but how can you rely on a device that can't make a connection when you need it?
the problem seems to be congestion, and a lack of provisioning. how about fixing it?
