Bell Comments On Verizon-Vodafone Speculation

MONTREAL, Aug. 29, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Bell today noted the widespread media speculation about US communications giant Verizon's plan to buy out international partner Vodafone's 45% stake in its wireless business. The rumour confirms what the majority of Canadians have been telling the federal government: a company like Verizon with the scale to consider an acquisition of approximately US$130 billion dollars does not need any handouts from Ottawa to compete in the Canadian wireless market.

In a recent national survey by Nanos Research ( www.nanosresearch.com), Canadians said clearly that they want a level playing field in wireless: 81% said the government should give no favours to any carrier, foreign or domestic, while just 2% supported the idea of special favours for giant US entrants like Verizon.
