The opinions expressed in this editorial are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect those of Decima Reports. Craig Wireless International’s fight for control of Look Communications Inc. demonstrates at least one thing: the company has resolve. But it also shows the wireless cable TV and Internet service provider may be prone to poor judgment.  Let’s face it: wireless cable TV in general has been a horrible experiment for both Industry Canada and the CRTC. Not only hasn’t Craig Wireless lived up to its competitive potential, Look and Saskatchewan-based Image Wireless have both failed to demonstrate a competitive punch from the technology. Further, it appears that at least Craig Wireless and Look are moving away from the provision of cable TV services. In their licence renewal applications, they asked for greater flexibility in how they use their spectrum. This could only point to their desire to concentrate to a greater degree on broadband Internet services. Report on Wireless believes that it be more appropriate for these operators to give up on their video services entirely to focus solely on providing high-speed Internet access to un-served and under-served regions of the country. In this light, however, those three companies missed out on an opportunity to solidify their spectrum holdings. Earlier this month, several small ISPs won licences in Industry Canada’s 2300/3500 MHz spectrum auction, and for the most part they paid reserve bid prices. As an example, Pathcom Wireless, a small ISP based in Alberta, paid about $93,000 for more than a dozen licences covering more than 1.5 million people in most of Alberta and parts of Saskatchewan and British Columbia. If Craig Wireless wants Look for its spectrum and subscriber base, the company could have secured a much stronger position in a more inexpensive manner. Besides, one has to ask how much money Craig Wireless is spending on legal fees or will have to dish out after the legal proceedings are completed for its two-pronged legal battle with Look on one front and the CRTC on the other (see article in this issue for more information). Even if the company wins on both fronts, it’s still not guaranteed to gain control of Look. While wireless cable TV providers will slug it out for the time being, the writing may be on the wall as Industry Canada is about to begin a review of MDS spectrum.
