When Samsung launches a smartphone, almost every carrier in the world snags it onto their service, with the LG G2, the South Korean arch-rival wants to achieve the same worldwide availability, to push the product beyond previous generations.
This has been done in the US, where LG announced the new flagship would be coming on all four major carriers. Currently Verizon seems to be the only one that cares about promoting the fact the LG G2 is coming to the US, with AT&T focused on the Moto X, Sprint getting bought out and T-Mobile proving their deals are better.
In Canada, LG is going with more than just the major carriers, with six confirmed already. The big three, Rogers, Bell and Telus, will be carrying the device, this will make up the bulk of LG G2 orders. The other three, WIND Mobile, SaskTel and Videotron, will try to sell the phone at different price points, ultimately trying to keep profits up against the big carriers.
We are glad to see some competition in Canada for once, the government and regulations office does not tolerate any moves by the big carrier companies, with their dominance on the market making competition almost a non-factor. The LG G2 has still yet to be priced in Canada or the US.
