• A Glimmer of Hope for MVNOs in Canada



    Hot on the heels of a new CRTC directive proposed by Innovation, Science and Economic Minister Navdeep Bains (above) comes yet another public consultation, and with it a faint glimmer of hope for mobile virtual network operators in this country. From CTV:

    The CRTC's review of the wireless sector—which was already planned to begin this year—apparently begins with the view that smaller operators need some level of guaranteed ability to connect with the bigger networks.

    The CRTC says it's seeking public comment about whether MVNOs "should have mandated access to the networks of the national wireless providers (Bell Mobility, Rogers and Telus) until they are able to establish themselves in the market.
    Canadians can submit comments on CRTC Notice 2019-57 online or by mail until May 15th of this year. A public hearing is scheduled for January 13th, 2020 in Gatineau, Québec.

      How many public inquiries does one need to know that we need MVNO's....? and thats nonsense that they need to have access only until they build on their own network....no Virtual is for a reason, they need access simply at a wholesale rate much like they have in USA/EURO/UK/Australia.

      "We need studies and more proof, because allowing TPIAs in the ISP space has been an utter failure." Oh wait, it was an amazing victory for Joe Consumer.
