New wireless carrier readies to launch city network and bring consumers truly unlimited plans with unbeatable value

TORONTO, May 7 /CNW/ - Mobilicity today received a green light from the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission to operate as a telecommunications carrier.

"We have been given the approval to offer Canadians truly competitive wireless services," said Mobilicity Chairman John Bitove.

We want to thank the CRTC for its insightful handling of our application and let consumers know that Mobilicity will be bringing simplicity and value to Canadian wireless customers very soon."
