You answered by pointing to 1 vice chairman from Rogers, but we already covered that. You still didn't answer how or what you thought the CRTC was to do or regulate.
The only goal for govt here is to make a bigger market place with the wireless sprectrum available (see above IC is doing their part repurposing the obsolete TV bands), that requires more participation by the Canadian population, that requires LOWER costs to put devices and plans into more hands and business processes, and that will require additional competitors (if we don't want to regulate the price side of the incumbents) and those new competitors (without cross polinating monopolistic digital media distribution empires) will have to have lower cost structure then the incumbents to achieve/maintain similar profitability and that means that investment capital might mave to come from outside Canada and the call centres (which are not a "service" as implied in the title) might even be placed in low cost countries with different english accents so in the end the govt collects more $ (billions up front in the auctions and billions from gst/hst on the biggest market possible) they just have to get the size of the set aside ratios (incumbent/new entrants) correct to maximize present and future revenue. They are extremely good at this calculation and really want the revenue so I suspect they got that number about right.
The Canadian Radio and Television Commission does have a very important role for culture = content where I think they are failing miserably especially in English Canada. The other arms of the big 3 wireless cos are media empires that pump ever increasing hours of foreign content and news into the Canadian English media market place, sim sub 20 mins an hour of Canadian advertising and call it a day. The mandated Canadian content is so poorly produced and placed in the schedules that viewership is non existent. If the CRTC can't achieve better results in this important and vital part of their mandate then why should they exist at all? Will be watching to see if the Harper Govt moves to re focus the CRTC after the 09 shenanigans. This govt clearly wants this and other non competitive sectors opened up. They can change the 10% rule very easily. Folks in this sector (incumbents, regulators) would be wise to read the tea leaves and plan/act accordingly
As LTE matures and the distribution of culturally relevant content becomes viable I can see a role for the CRTC in the distributed content area just like cable, IPTV, OTA TV. Hopefully they are achieving better results on the cultural scorecards at that point.

After one week, the number is finally ported.
Oh and finally after a week my email was finally answered. Speedy service
I filed a formal complaint. They said someone will get back to me in 2-5 business days. Hope they leave a message and not just hang up and close my case like the last three times.
One week later still no response from wind even after the formal complaint. What's the point?
This is after they promised that someone would call me back in the next 2-3 business days.
I just called with the case number and they said it was successfully solved.
