So that's 2 of the Robellus cartel that are going after the feds for changing the new entrant roaming rules.
What's Bell's problem? The intial deal was for 5yrs and they no longer had to share towers or providing roaming on their network. Industry Canada changed to infinite and reduces the time for arbitration (remember when the new players launched they were fought on every single tower they wanted on).
They also take issue with the new entrants being able to get 2 "slices" of the 700mhz spectrum.
This is not about allowing them to use their towers or roam on their networks , it's about kneecapping the new players. So basically it's ok to kneecap new players, but don't you dare kneecap us.
If you don't have an "away" area where you can roam on the incumbents network (for a price of course) you don't have a business. And if you don't have a business, well, we here at Robellus would be happy to pick up the pieces for you.
2ndly what's the problem? They're not using towers or roaming for free, Bell is getting paid for this.
As for the spectrum they obviously believe in competition, and that the deepest pockets win, there is no way any of the new players (even if they combined their resources) could outbid Robellus.

No, I didn't. Honest... I ran out of gas. I... I had a flat tire. I didn't have enough money for cab fare. My tux didn't come back from the cleaners. An old friend came in from out of town. Someone stole my car. There was an earthquake.......
