Speculation about Merger of BCE and Telus

12 08 2009

An article in today’s Report on Business deals with the speculation that BCE (the parent of Bell Canada, the old telephony monopoly in Ontario and Quebec) may merge with Telus (the reincarnated version of AGT, the formerly government-owned telephony monopoly in Alberta). The merged company might prove to be a national champion for Canada in the business of telecommunications.

Of course, such a merger would need the approval of the CRTC, which may be reluctant to make Canada’s mobile phone market even less competitive than it is now. (See this recent story about the high costs of mobile phones in Canada).
