Corporate Mobility Services migrating from Bell to Rogers
Published on: May 25, 2021
As of May 2021, the University of Toronto (U of T) Telecommunications team has begun migrating University Corporate Mobility Services users from Bell Mobility to Rogers Mobility across the tri-campus community.
Attention business officers
As the main point of contact for U of T staff and faculty using corporate mobile services, U of T’s business officers’ assistance is needed in this migration. Specifically, if a corporate client requests an upgrade in service and/or has an expiring contract, please forward their information to Steven Wall, Information Technology Services, at: firstname.lastname@example.org. (Please note: Telecommunications will be reaching out to business officers directly throughout May and June regarding this migration).
Benefits of migration
This migration will offer many benefits, including lower-cost monthly plans, no data overages, competitive international data roaming rates, less expensive Canada-wide calling, free Wi-Fi calling and less administrative work due to a more comprehensive invoicing process. (This is part of a Vendor of Record for the Ministry of Government Services offering).
Overall, there are approximately 2,200 corporate U of T mobile phone users with Bell. Currently, 1,100 are out of contract, some of which are being migrated to Rogers as early adopters. The entire migration process is expected to take place from May 2021 to May 2023.
Stay tuned for announcements on a new Rogers online ordering and administrative portal — similar to the current Bell portal. Plus, training sessions on how to use it, expected to be coming summer/fall 2021.
