TORONTO, May 25 /CNW/ - Rogers today submitted its comments to Industry Canada regarding the AWS Auction policy. "An auction is a great way of ensuring that radio spectrum goes to those who can put it to the best use. That's why an auction should not be rigged by special rules - it should be open," said Ted Rogers, CEO, Rogers Communications Inc. "An auction is a good opportunity for others to enter the wireless business. We welcome that competition." Added Ted Rogers, "Spectrum is a critical asset for wireless operators and Rogers needs more spectrum to deliver our new services to more Canadians." Rogers' submission confirmed the wireless industry is the most dynamic segment of the Canadian telecommunications market. Not coincidentally, it has been the least regulated segment. It consistently produces the highest growth levels, the most competition, and the most rapid deployment of new technology and service innovations of any segment of Canada's telecommunications market. As examples, Rogers cited some of their advanced 3G offers, such as their recently-launched wireless video calling service, and their national HSDPA high speed voice and data network, launched in 2006.
