Mobilicity gets CRTC approval; on track to launch soon

by Jeff Wiener on May 7, 2010

Mobilicity today received a green light from the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission to operate as a telecommunications carrier.

“We have been given the approval to offer Canadians truly competitive wireless services,” said Mobilicity Chairman John Bitove. “It has taken four years to get to this stage and the impact of our upcoming launch will be felt across the country. We want to thank the CRTC for its insightful handling of our application and let consumers know that Mobilicity will be bringing simplicity and value to Canadian wireless customers very soon.”

Mobilicity is gearing up to launch in Toronto this spring; rollouts will subsequently take place in Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary and Ottawa.

The CRTC approval was granted subject to changes, which Mobilicity has agreed to implement within the required timeframe.
