BREAKING NEWS: Telus Sues Rogers Over Ad Claims

Telus who loves to say that “the future is friendly” isn’t being friendly towards Rogers. I’ve just gotten word that they’re suing Rogers over the fact that Rogers claims to be “Canada’s fastest network: two times faster than any other” based on the fact that they rolled out HSPA+ on November 5th which at the very least levels the playing field. They also object to the “Canada’s most reliable network” label that Rogers is using as well. Telus wants Rogers to say that its advertisements breached Canada’s Competition Act as well as they want the ads to stop. Oh, they want to get paid too.

One wonders if this will turn into a Canadian version of  AT&T vs. Verizon? If so, it will be just as fun to watch.

More info I as get it.
