Verizon confirms interest in expanding wireless network to Canada


Recommended Posts

Verizon Wireless Canada Expansion
There had been reports earlier this week that suggested Verizon was interested in entering the Canadian wireless market. Fran Shammo, the company's chief financial officer, confirmed in an interview with The Wall Street Journal that the wireless provider is "looking at the opportunity." It had previously been reported that Verizon was interested in acquiring Canadian wireless provider Wind Mobile. The executive wouldn't confirm talks with the wireless provider and would only say that the company's plans are in the early stages. Shammo also explained that there could be some regulatory complications that could delay the carrier's plans for entering the country, so it doesn't seem like a move up north is likely to happen anytime soon.h-KMwIi3xR4

Considering Winds crappy roll out in smaller communities and along our major highway, perhaps it might be a good thing (I'm not betting on this though)


Also, this may set a president for foreign ownership and perhaps continue to encourage foreign investment, if the CRTC (aka known as the Rogers executive retirement plan) pulls its head out of its ass.


I guess my point is, anything is better than Rogers/Bell and all their subsidiaries.
