The CRTC sent out a e-mail titled “Upcoming CRTC Decisions and Regulatory Policies: 3 May to 7 May 2010”. Specifically for telecom they’ve noted the “Ownership and control review” for Dave Wireless (Data & Audio-Visual Enterprises Wireless Inc), otherwise now known as Mobilicity.
The CRTC started their review back in March and Secretary General, Robert A. Morin stated in a letter that DAVE “appears to comply with the legal control requirements of the Act”… so more than likely you can expect the Mobilicity brand to get the go-ahead to launch their new wireless network.
Toronto will be the first launch city (we hear during the first week of June), followed by Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton and Ottawa later in the year. Mobilicity invested $243.1-million for 10 licenses during the Canadian Wireless Spectrum Auction and will offer “No Contract. No Credit Check. Unlimited Wireless.” to their customers.
