CRTC launches wholesale mobile sector review

21 Feb 2014

The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) has launched a public consultation to review whether the wholesale mobile wireless services market is sufficiently competitive, and the prospects for competition in the future. The CRTC is inviting comments on:

-the state of the market for wholesale mobile wireless services, including wholesale roaming and wholesale tower sharing in Canada;

-the impact that the wholesale mobile wireless services market has on the retail market; and

-whether greater regulatory oversight would be appropriate if it were to find that the wholesale mobile wireless services market is not sufficiently competitive.

Comments may be submitted until 1 May 2014. The CRTC will also hold a public hearing beginning on 29 September 2014.
