Microcell and Telus could be headed to court
Microcell Telecommunications Inc. and Telus Mobility are facing off in what could turn out to be an ugly court battle over Microcell’s analog roaming agreement with Telus. Microcell, the country’s smallest national wireless operator, is asking the B.C. Supreme Court for an injunction to ensure that Telus doesn’t cut its roaming connection. According to the filing, Telus has accused Microcell of violating its roaming agreement by promoting its CityFido home replacement service. Microcell launched the initiative on Oct. 9, 2003 (RoW, Oct. 7/03). Microcell also asked the Quebec Superior Court to find Telus in contempt of violating injunctions it issued in November and December. The injunctions relate to a telemarketing campaign targeting Microcell subscribers.
