Wind wins apex court victory over Public Mobile in ownership case

27 Apr 2012

Canada’s Supreme Court has ruled in favour of cellco Globalive Wireless (Wind Mobile) in a case brought by rival operator Public Mobile. The apex court threw out Public Mobile’s last-chance attempt to query a previous decision from the Federal Court of Appeal which found that Wind’s ownership structure complied with Canadian foreign ownership law. Wind, part of the multinational Vimpelcom group, announced that the Supreme Court judgement puts an end to all legal challenges over its foreign ownership/capital funding.
