Bce Inc Goes To Court To Fight Canada's Wireless Rules-Reuters
Monday, 9 Sep 2013 01:56pm EDT 

Reuters reported that Bce Inc is taking Ottawa to court to fight government moves to assist new entrants in the wireless market as part of its policy push to increase wireless competition. Ottawa earlier this year extended and expanded rules that compel Canada's three dominant wireless operators BCE, Rogers Communications Inc and Telus Corp to open their networks to the customers of smaller rivals. The Conservative government extended indefinitely a requirement that the big three share their cellular towers with smaller competitors and provide them with roaming services on their networks. When introduced in 2008, the roaming requirement, designed to make upstarts more attractive to customers, was limited to five years. BCE's Bell Mobility unit says that the government cannot change its rules in midstream, and has gone to Federal Court to argue that Ottawa does not have the right to force it to share its cellular network infrastructure. It is seeking a judicial review of the changes the government has made. It is also seeking to stop Ottawa from imposing similar roaming and tower-sharing conditions in an auction of 700 megahertz spectrum in January. The government has said it would like to see four major players in each region of the country, with the aim of lowering prices for customers.  Full Article
