Wireless Spectrum Sale – Phil Barrett's 2008 Favourite Thing

One of my favorite happenings of 2008 was the spectrum sale that ended in July.  Having Globalive, Shaw, Quebecor, Data & Auto-Visual Enterprises (DAVE) and Bragg Communications  join the consumer mobile market should bring lower prices, better service and more choice for consumers in 2009 and 2010.

More competition also means penetration of mobile in Canada should accelerate and reach nearly 100% within 3 years – which is great news for marketers looking for this channel to hit critical mass across all demographics.
