Re: Okay, NOW Wind will definitely be foreign owned

But a lot of people don't want/need smartphones. And even then, their 5MHz of downstream spectrum is good for up to 75 Mbps downstream with regular LTE. They've said they plan to migrate to LTE, although I'm not sure how. LTE supports using smaller than 5 MHz chunks, but CDMA doesn't, so it seems like they'll have to do a full migration and replace all existing phones?

The point is that there isn't a lot of money in dumbphones.

And yeah, they'll have to migrate in a straight shot. They may say they have plans for LTE, but it will be far from a simple process.

Wind is a pretty big fish outside Canada. In fact, take a look here and tell me where you see Rogers/Telus/Bell

Outside ripping off Canadians, they are minnows.
