From My Perspective…

WIND Mobile Being Challenged By Another New Mobile Company

The CBC reported today that the decision to allow Globalive (owner of the WIND brand) to operate in canada is being challenged. If you recall, back in December, Canada’s Industry Minister, Tony Clement, overruled a previous CRTC decision which blocked Globalive from operating cellphone service in Canada, allowing them to continue with their WIND mobile plans. Public Mobile, another new mobile player has filed an application for judicial review of the minister’s decision claiming it was incorrect and disregards foreign-ownership restrictions in the telecom industry. Well, we knew this would come… I’m just surprised where it came from.
