Bell & TELUS to merge within “the coming year or two”

    Sustain margins? Canadian cell phone companies have some of the highest profit margins in the world!

  • Joe Ball

    great. and then there were two.


  • Sid Ali

    So instead of colluding behind the scenes, they can create ‘synergies’ by colluding out in the open now? Well in two years time.

    They really believe the new companies will garner so much market share that having these two companies join up won’t be an issue for the competition bureau?

    This is not going to happen. Trust me on this one. The CRTC would never let it happen, nor would it go through on the grounds of a duopoly.

    They already share their CDMA towers… the HSPDA build out is certainly joint in nature but they already are very tightly married together behind the scene.

    Do they really need to merge? Telus is building a new HSPDA netowrk in the west they will be sharing with Bell… a virtual merger
