Telus court case against spectrum caps rejected

6 Jan 2014

Canada’s Federal Court has rejected a petition from Telus which had requested a judicial review of rules limiting the amount of ‘prime’ 700MHz mobile frequencies which nationwide network operators including Telus, Rogers and Bell are permitted to purchase in the upcoming 4G licence auction later this month. Telus was also ordered to pay the government the costs of pursuing its legal action, the Globe & Mail reported. Telus continues to seek a separate judicial review of spectrum transfer rules.
