If you want an update on the evolution of Canada's wireless industry,you've come to the right place! This event, featuring Anthony Lacavera, CEO of Globalive, was held in conjunction with MobileMonday Toronto's partnership with MaRS.
Last year, Globalive invested $440M in spectrum licenses in Canada's wireless spectrum auction with a plan to build the first new, national wireless company in over a decade. Following approval by Industry Canada, Globalive spent the last year building their new network under the brand name WIND Mobile. Recently, the CRTC made a decision to review Globalive's ownership structure and concluded that it did not meet Canada's foreign ownership and control rules, which has effectively delayed their launch.
So what's next for Globalive?
