SaskTel buys RSL COM Canada
Provincial telco SaskTel has paid $17 million to acquire RSL COM Canada, which operates in British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario and Quebec. The current RSL staff will stay in place, president/CEO David Alsop reports. He expects a fair degree of autonomy from his new bosses in Regina. "They will be active at the board level, they will provide support at the management level if we need it," he tells Network Letter, "but they’re going to run it as an investment. We’re not going to be a division or a department." More details.
