TELUS comments on Industry Canada's spectrum auction and foreign ownership decisions

TELUS believes this is a thoughtful and balanced decision that meets the Government's objectives of promoting consumer choice, supporting sustainable competition through investment in technology and further expanding broadband services in rural markets.

"Radio spectrum is the building block of wireless broadband - essential to expanding access to education programmes, economic development opportunities, healthcare information and bridging the digital divide for rural communities," said Darren Entwistle, TELUS president and CEO. "The rules established by Minister Paradis will allow all competitors to have fair and reasonable access to the critical 700 MHz spectrum in the upcoming auction. Ultimately, the wireless services built upon this spectrum will provide businesses, educators, students, health professionals and families with the tools they need to build strong, healthy and sustainable communities."
