Orange studying Canadian MVNO market

27 Nov 2013

Orange Horizons, a division of French giant Orange Group, is examining a potential entry into Canada’s mobile market, reports the Globe & Mail. Representatives of the French telecoms group recently held ‘exploratory talks’ with the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC), Industry Canada and Canada’s Trade Commissioner Service about the potential opportunity for market entry, the newspaper said. Sources added that Orange is considering launching a Canadian mobile virtual network operator (MVNO), and is not looking at acquiring its own wireless spectrum or radio network.
