Globalive Launch Delayed Due To CRTC Probe

Here’s a plot twist that I didn’t see coming. Remember when I told you about Telus making a request to have the ownership structure of Globalive reviewed because Telus is afraid of competition? It appears that the CRTC has decided to look into this further. Public hearings into the matter will be held on September 23 and September 24th of this year in Gatineau. That will guarantee that they won’t launch this year.

The weird thing is that this sort of review has been done before. Industry Canada did a review prior to the company winning the wireless auction that put them in position to challenge Bell, Telus and Rogers. So in my mind, this is a waste of time and money.

But I guess if you’re Telus, it’s a good thing. After all it saves them the need to compete straight up by screwing them by using government regulations while having it paid for by taxpayer money.

Clearly for Telus, the future is not so friendly if you compete against them.
