Another nail in the coffin for Mobilicity

The federal government just put another nail in the coffin of Mobilicity, the struggling wireless provider that is trying to sell out to Telus Corp.

Industry Minister James Moore just approved the sale of spectrum from rival Public Mobile to Telus. A press release from Telus asserted that it would take full ownership of the company pending approval from the Competition Bureau. Good news for Mobilicity? The opposite, in fact.
