order to be competitive in a marketplace threatened by Skype and other
Internet over-the-top services, and it has created a call to action for
other operators worldwide who are recognizing that to stay relevant,
they have to adapt. It has been a fantastic experience working with the
Rogers team and we look forward to our continued partnership."
