Many of those 200,000 subs are on low-price plans which don't turn much, if any profit for Mobilicity, which is why they're in such a hole. It's also why they would consider giving the subs away.
I wonder about the network equipment. I understand Mobilicity keeping the spectrum, but the towers themselves have value but the site leases cost money, are they going to sit on those too?
They can hold the spectrum until the moratorium runs out if they wish, but there is an excellent chance that, if we still have the same government, they still won't be allowed to sell.
