Canada’s wireless carriers continue to spar over proposed changes regarding the treatment of ESMR spectrum holdings under existing spectrum aggregation limit rules. Telus Mobility continues to claim the move would be a simple adjustment and is only a minor change, but other carriers believe treating ESMR spectrum differently would have far-reaching competitive impacts. Neither side seems willing to budge from initial statements made to DGTP-003-02. Bell Mobility (representing the Bell Wireless Alliance), Microcell Telecommunications Inc., Rogers Wireless Communications Inc., and W2N Inc. are opposed to the proposal.
