Court denies Bell, Telus attempts to block Videotron’s western 5G purchases

Canada's Federal Court has denied requests from national telecoms operators Bell and Telus to block Quebec-based rival Videotron from purchasing 3500MHz 5G 'set-aside' mobile licences in western provinces it won at auction earlier this year, IT World Canada reports. The court concluded that there was no basis for assertions that Videotron needed to have physical infrastructure in British Columbia, Alberta and Manitoba to be eligible for the set-aside licences (reserved for companies other than Bell, Telus or Rogers). Videotron welcomed the court's decision to refuse the stay request, although the case will continue with further arguments to be put forward by Bell and Telus in future hearings.
