Rogers told to ditch ‘most reliable network’ claim
Wireless rival Telus ‘pleased’ after winning injunction on Rogers advertising claims in B.C. court
For me this news feels like “the pot calling the kettle black”. I’ve been told by Bell sales people that Bell and Telus share a new network in Canada, while Rogers uses much older technology, like GSM et al. But I’ve always had a low opinion of Telus after dumping their DSL service 4 years ago in Vancouver. So I don’t feel so impressed that Telus sued to get an injunction to stop Rogers’ claims about its network “being the best”.
Since the Berkman Institute recently published a report about worldwide national telecom systems in which Canada ranked 37th re cost, bandwidth offerings et al, I feel that Telus, Bell et al need to make major revisions to pricing and bandwidth offerings. That goes in spades for my current phone and ISP, Shaw.
Guys, get your own act together before attacking your nearest competitor!
