"I understand you don't like Wind but don't start making statistics like wind has a 40% drop rate."
I didn't "make" anything. WIND launched with those stats within their company walls. 60-40, good enough.
Mobi launched with 98.5%.....good things happen to those who wait windy

I support some of our ownership restrictions particularly when speaking of media and content providers but I don't understand the risk with foreign ownership of your wireless division. Personally I believe that is exactly what our free market is supposed to encourage. If our local companies cannot compete with foreign companies I have no sympathy, that is exactly what competition is about and it is very good for consumers. Heck if we removed foreign influence from our country we wouldn't have anywhere near half of what we have today.
I'm all for rules, but I think this one isn't helping anyone.
I'm surprised that nobody has said we are being racist if we don't allow foreign investment...I've heard dumber things said..
wow...i'll try to get all the answers you are all looking for in one post....wish me luck...
We do not have Target up here.
As per the 60% call success rate thing, i suggest you do a little research. As I have stated in other posts, I do work for Mobilicity, and i DO have all of my facts straight. All you did there was say i was full of it......but stated nothing at all to back that up. move along troll....
Just a question....does no one think WIND had a hand ($) in making things "roll forward" for them? Think about it....
I WAS GOING TO SAY THAT DAMMIT!
no really, it was my next post.....+1 for mind reading
Target expects to open 100 to 150 stores throughout Canada in 2013 and 2014. This will provide an initial foundation for a more “robust” presence over time, the company said in a statement.
The expansion will create thousands of jobs in Canada, initially in the construction industry through renovation works, and eventually in the stores themselves, it said.
although i hate using the sun as a source the information is correct.
my question remains, should the government step up and prevent Target from coming in and should they also force Walmart to close.
Huh. Learn something new everyday.
Bear in mind, none of what i've said is in general as such, more directed to overseas companies trying to stick their nose into a canadian market. And yes, it will create thousands of jobs, probably at the same payrate and quality as Walmart. Huzzah.....
Wind jumped in when they damn well knew they shouldn't, and now they're paying the price. That's the bottom line, and with a minority govt and elections coming soon, I personally don't see this going well for Wind......
Admittedly it makes me pretty happy to see a canadian company succeed over rich-kid foreign investors.....no one else shares that opinion?
I just want WIND to stop acting like it's Canadian. I want the government to address how they broke the rules/laws leaving the other 2 competitors at a serious disadvantage because they interpreted this complex legal restrictions however which way. And if the interpretations were correct, I expect clarity out of this so Mobilicity can up it's game, rumour has it that their investors are willing to pour in much more.
There is still concerns that WIND is a dumb company burning through money and making structural changes in headcounts that are questionable at best. Globalive doesn't have the right Canadian talent in place to make the tough decisions and innovate this wireless industry. Tony Lacavera is also an idiot, he thinks he's some wireless communications prodigy, but he's not.
