Industry Canada has revoked the spectrum licences of Maxlink Communications Inc., closing the books on a tempestuous 13-month business saga and on this country’s first foray into high-frequency wireless services. The Toronto-based company, and major spectrum-holder, sank into receivership in November 2000 (RoW, Dec. 11/00), sparking a combined effort by the receiver and Industry Canada to transfer the assets to an unnamed suitor. Last week, the department acknowledged the failure of those efforts and regained control of the spectrum.
