Episode 84: Dwayne Winseck and Ben Klass on Canada's Wireless Woes
Last week was a busy one in the wireless world in Canada. Just as people were debating the proposed Rogers – Shaw merger, the CRTC released its long awaited wireless decision involving the possibility of mandated MVNOs or mobile virtual network operators. To help break down these recent developments, Dwayne Winseck, a professor at the School of Journalism and Communication at Carleton University and the director of the Canadian Media Concentration Research Project, and Ben Klass, a senior research associate at the Canadian Media Concentration Research Project and board member at the Internet Society Canada Chapter, join the podcast. They discuss what the data tells us about the state of Canadian wireless, the implications of the CRTC decision, and what should be done about the proposed Rogers – Shaw merger.
