I'm not sure why you think he was avoiding the question. It's very simple - they need a larger amount of the spectrum set aside. Anyone on Wind can tell you how badly they need it. Their network is so congested in certain areas around Toronto.
I honestly don't think we should be selling spectrum licenses anyways.
The government should just rent them out appropriately so everyone gets their fair share.
No hoarding and the government makes a steady stream of income to waste over time as opposed to one large sum to waste in one big bang.
Problem is - Buying Mobi won't be enough.
It'd be better to buy Shaw.
WIND has enough spectrum in Ontario for LTE and DC-HSPA+.
Shaw's got lots of western spectrum that will be useful for WIND when they need past their current 10MHz (minimum for LTE speeds). Maritimes not get LTE.
Acquiring Shaw's unused spectrum has many pros:
+Not aquiring subs mechanically (won't affect 100% foreign ownership)
+LTE available in more places
+More comfortable coverage expansion in Alberta.
+LTE wouldn't be limited to only Vancouver, Victoria, and certain areas of Alberta
But cons as well:
-AWS is not ideal for city coverage
-Still No Quebec or Maritimes LTE Coverage
-Eastern Ontario will not have LTE
Nevermind Bell.. LTE is fine.
