Modifications in Wireless Spectrum Policy benefit Canadian Consumers
MONTREAL, May 21, 2014 /CNW/ - In response to today's announcement by
Industry Minister James Moore, TerreStar Solutions' President, André
Tremblay said, "I applaud Prime Minister Harper and Industry Minister
James Moore for their steadfast support and common sense policy of
wireless competition in Canada. Their decision means better wireless
services, lower prices, and more and better jobs for Canadians."
The Harper government's Advanced Wireless Service (AWS-4) spectrum
consultation paper issued by Minister Moore reaffirms the Minister's
commitment to increase the spectrum available for competitive wireless
services in Canada.
Spectrum is the fuel that drives new technological developments, higher
speed mobile services and lower prices for consumers. By modifying
existing policies to make this spectrum available in Canada, the Harper
government will foster lower prices and better services for consumers.
"This policy consultation and swift decisions on its issues by the
Harper government are critical ingredients. They will attract new
capital to the wireless market and make a fourth competitor in every
region of the country a reality", concluded Tremblay.
TerreStar Solutions CFO and Treasurer, Jacques Leduc added, "This is the
last regulatory milestone enabling TerreStar Solutions to become an
active player in the Canadian wireless landscape. The national AWS-4
spectrum is critical for the wireless broadband network of tomorrow.
It will allow affordable mobile Internet services to become reality for
A Montréal-based Canadian company, TerreStar Solutions was founded in
