This coming Monday will be another exciting day for wireless in Canada. Industry Minister James Moore has just announced that he will be making an announcement “about Wireless Competition.” The only details listed, other than the festivities will happen at 9:30am EST, is that it will “support more consumer choice and better service in the wireless market.”
Moore previously announced several “pro-consumer” regulation initiatives, such as reducing domestic roaming costs, cell tower build restrictions and a “use it or lose it” policy for carriers who hoard spectrum. Moore also might give greater insight into the upcoming 2500Mhz spectrum auction set April 2015, or possibly let us know the fate of Mobilicity.
