Competition Bureau backs regional carriers, MVNOs in mobile sector review

​Canada's Competition Bureau has published a submission to the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC's) mobile market review, in which it says consumers could save substantially on their wireless bills if major national cellcos Bell, Rogers and Telus were faced with more competition from regional carriers like Freedom Mobile and Videotron, as well as MVNOs. The Bureau found that Bell, Rogers and Telus are able to charge higher prices in most of Canada where they possess market power but regional players like Freedom and Videotron are increasingly disrupting the market – with prices up to 35%-40% lower in areas with a 'disruptor' presence. The Bureau recommended that the CRTC pursue a roaming/MVNO policy including mandating Bell, Rogers and Telus to sell temporary access to their wireless networks to regional carriers who intend to invest and further expand their own networks, to spur additional price competition in the short term while avoiding the risk of declining network quality in the long term.
