OTTAWA, ON, Sept. 10, 2013 /CNW/ - Critics argue that Canada has a competitive problem in wireless and that the federal government must do something, anything, to lower the consequent high prices for wireless services. It is not hard to find harsh assessments. Critics have accused the industry of being "woefully uncompetitive" and "dysfunctional" and in desperate need of an overhaul.
But are the critics right?
At a media conference, Jeffery Church from the School of Public Policy at the University of Calgary will release a report that reveals why more competitors in the telecom market would not necessarily mean lower prices for wireless services. The report will also provide surprising facts on mobile telecom profitability and the costs consumers pay in Canada.
