A recent decision by Industry Canada to align its 2500 MHz spectrum policy with that of the United States has given MCS and MDS operators the certainty they need to follow through on their long-term business plans. On Nov. 16, the department announced that those providers wouldn’t have to migrate to another band as was previously considered (RoW, Jan. 22/01) and that it was also considering adding a mobile allocation to the band. Licence-holders Inukshuk Internet Inc. and Image Wireless Communications Inc. can now move forward with network deployment and service implementation.
