Nadir Mohamed, CEO of Rogers opened up the NYC Stock Exchange yesterday (ironically titled “Rogers Communications Opening Bell”…check out the video here) and afterwards he was interviewed about how he feels about Canadian wireless competition.
Mohamed said he is comfortable and “In no way do I see this as an environment where new players will get no customers. For some time… we will not see new players have anywhere near the kind of quality of network we have… We feel very strongly that we will have that advantage.”
Who knows what their network quality will be like, we’ll only know when they officially launch. The fact remains is that Canadians are ready to jump ship to test the new carriers… which should be a bit more on the minds of Rogers execs.
