I don't know if anyone else has a post about this, if you do, sorry. Anyhow, I just found this article through bnet.com about Shaw getting into the wireless game sometime later this year.
Calgary, Alberta-based cable giant, Shaw Communications, will begin rolling out its own mobile phone network later this year, the company said in its first-quarter earnings announcement earlier today.
Shaw spent $189 million on wireless airwaves liceneses at a government auction in 2008. The 18 licenese cover most of Western Canada and parts of northern Ontario. In 2010, Shaw will take “initial steps to commence wireless activities, with build-out planned over the next several years,” the company said in a statement.
Chief Executive, Jim Shaw, said that the company is still in the early stages of planning its wireless business and hasn’t decided whether or not to bring a partner on board.
“We don’t need a partner, but we’re not ruling that out,” Shaw said in a conference call with analysts. “It would be a question of whether they brought something to the table that would be of help to us, like maybe tower sharing or equipment sharing.”
Should be good!
