Chunk of Canadian spectrum set aside for the underdog

Comments

TowerWe bitch and moan a fair bit around here about Canadian wireless rates, which is why we were excited by the news that 40 mhz of the upcoming spectrum auction will be reserved for parties other than Bell, Rogers, and Telus. Industry Canada stepped in to impose this and promote more competition and curb the wireless oligopoly that’s in place right now. On top of opening the doors for smaller carriers to get a piece of the pie, international companies can also take the opportunity to partner up with Canadian companies for usage of the new spectrum, which means more investment opportunities for those little carriers like Videotron, Shaw, Quebecor and MTS. Hopefully the new kids on the block will help drive down rates, but we’ll have to wait until after the auction to find out.
