So they bought the spectrum in hopes of reselling to someone else or to block others?

When you are making $1 billion plus a year, the recession is the best time to invest.

Building the network now would be much cheaper than when the boom was on and since it takes a few years to build, it makes to start now.

Videotron is expected to spend $300 to $500 million to build their network which is much larger so for Shaw to build a network for their areas it might be a few hundred million.

That's only a few months profit!

hugh,

I agree with you. Not sure why they wouldn't enter the market. I, for one, am dissapointed. I was looking forwarded to dropping my current cell phone provider and using Shaw for wireless. I guess I will have to hope that GlobalLive will get their network up and running.
