Telus Mobility wants Industry Canada to change the way it calculates spectrum aggregation limits, prior to a full scale review of the spectrum cap. The company has filed an application with the department asking it to either remove ESMR (Enhanced Specialized Mobile Radio) spectrum holdings from spectrum cap calculations or cap a company’s entire holdings at 10 MHz regardless of how much spectrum is held. Earlier this month, Industry Canada launched a public consultation on what may turn out to be a highly contentious issue (DGTP 003-02).
