The Wavefront Wireless Zones offer daily hardware rentals from as little as $10, ranging from the newest tablets to sought after smartphones. Devices are currently available to rent at our Vancouver head office as well as other Canadian cities through our national network of partners.

Key Benefits:

  • Cost savings on device purchase and rental
  • Access to multiple kinds of devices, including mobile phones and  tablets
  • Rental locations across Canada

Our Wireless Zone Locations:


Lighthouse Labs and DevHub

Devhub is Toronto’s first co-working space for Developers of all levels. Unlike other co-working spaces, Devhub’s focus is not on startups or entrepreneurs. The reason to join are to learn, code, teach, engage, connect and be challenged. We’ve designed our space with one goal above all else: to make the best place for people to grow as programmers. Our space is a combination of collaborative co-working space, a device lab, lots of white boards and most importantly, plenty of quiet working areas where you could sit back and code away.

See devhub.ca for more details.
