Telus May Soon Launch NFC-enabled SIM in Canada


After nearly a year of being the only NFC-based SIM supplier in Canada, it seems that Rogers is about to get some competition. An internal document spotted by MobileSyrup appears to indicate that Telus is planning on launching a new $15 NFC-enabled SIM card on October 10th.

It is said to be compatible with the BlackBerry Bold 9900 and the Samsung Galaxy S III at launch, and should deliver LTE and HSPA+ speeds. Like the CIBC and Rogers deal, customers will require a credit card and a downloaded app from an eligible bank in order to make those over-the-air transactions.

Although there is no more details than that, it is possible that you may be able to use it in the future.
