TORONTO, Aug. 19, 2013 /CNW/ – Rogers Communications issued the
following statement today in response to the Ontario Court of Justice’s
“We’re pleased that the court today confirmed that Chatr’s advertising
of fewer dropped calls, in connection with its 2010 launch, was fair
and accurate. The court also confirmed that the drive testing used by
Rogers is the best method for comparing network performance and is
universally accepted, both in Canada and internationally.
Testing conducted both before and after the 2010 launch confirmed the
accuracy of Chatr’s advertising. The court found that we should have
completed additional testing in certain urban markets in advance of the
launch. This testing was completed shortly after launch.
We support clear, accurate and consumer-friendly advertising. There is
no doubt that Rogers’ network performed better than networks of new
wireless carriers and we believed it was important that consumers had
that information. We always strive to meet the highest possible
standards of accuracy and clarity in all our advertisements and in all
the information we provide to consumers.”
