The one time I was broken into the intruders had cut the landline which I don't even have. A Dry Loop was used by the security company which comes through a land line.
I doubt it'll be GSM. Telus doesn't have a GSM network and the only provider in Canada that has one is shutting it down nation wide, next year.
