WIND Mobile and Samsung Canada today announced that the Samsung Galaxy S III will be arriving on WIND Mobile’s Network in time for the summer. With intuitive design and features, the Galaxy S III introduces a new concept in mobile usability – allowing users to communicate and share their experiences naturally and instantly.
The Supreme Court’s decision made earlier this morning conclusively ends WIND’s long-running regulatory and legal battles with its competitors over its compliance with Canadian ownership rules.
Today the Government of Ontario introduced legislation to protect wireless consumers in Ontario, something that WIND Mobile has been actively advocating for years.
Last week, two consumer advocacy groups – Open Media and CIPPIC – released a report arguing in favour of competition-friendly rules for the upcoming spectrum auction: Spectrum policy in Canada: Levelling the playing field for affordable rates and breadth of choice. The report outlines why set aside is absolutely necessary in order to maintain sustainable wireless competition in Canada.
As you may have heard, OpenMedia.ca launched a grassroots movement in support of wireless competition in Canada. In just one month, it has quickly become one of their largest online campaigns of the past year. Its petition, asking the federal government to set aside spectrum for new wireless entrants at the upcoming auction, has now received 60,000 signatures.
