Telus working on Public Mobile, still eyeing Mobilicity

Telus Corp. is focused on making Public Mobile “profitable” as a discount carrier, but continues to harbour ambitions of buying Mobilicity.

Chief financial officer John Gossling made those remarks at an investor conference on Friday, noting Telus remains interested in securing more customers as well as spectrum assets. Spectrum refers to the invisible radio waves that carriers use to provide cellphone service.
