Another Win for WIND

wind mobileThe Supreme Court of Canada has ruled against Public Mobile in its long-running fight against WIND and the Attorney General. Earlier today the highest court in the land denied Public Mobile leave to appeal an earlier Federal Court of Appeal decision that effectively confirmed WIND’s compliance with the Canadian ownership rules in the Telecom Act.

The Supreme Court’s decision conclusively ends WIND’s long running regulatory and legal battles with its competitors over its compliance with Canadian ownership rules.

“WIND is interested in fighting in the marketplace to provide Canadians with fair, transparent and competitive wireless offerings, not in fighting in courtrooms,” said Anthony Lacavera, Chairman of WIND Mobile. “We’re extremely pleased with the Supreme Court’s decision, which will allow us to tie off this loose end and continue working with the best interests of Canadians firmly in mind.”

“Our employees have stuck by us, we have continued to invest in building Canada’s third national wireless network and we continue to grow our customer base.  There are now over 400,000 happy customers who are with WIND because they choose to be, not because we’ve locked them into an onerous contract,” said Lacavera.

“We are moving full force ahead with over 490 points of distribution, the introduction of new handsets to our lineup each month and easy-to-understand plans that provide Canadians with the kind of national wireless service that they deserve.”
