Congratulations, Canadians, your carriers are well ahead of the curve. While video calling hasn't yet caught on...anywhere, the three largest carriers in Canada have decided to prepare themselves. BGR reports that Rogers, TELUS, and Bell are working together to make cross-carrier video calling a reality.

The carriers have just finished the testing phase. While all three currently allow intra-carrier video calling, they have so far seen no real interest in it from their customers. Video-calling's future success is far from guaranteed, either. The types of phone capable of handling it are also the types people are least likely to make a call from.

Still, better safe than sorry. No one is going to criticize these carriers for being ready ahead of the curve, and no one will remember if video calling dies a slow death.
