Just a heads up that I got a tip from someone that has filed comments on these type of deals before and it is looking like the Competition Bureau is wanting to quickly close the BCE purchase of MTS so get your comments in ASAP.

Just a reminder "interventions", aka comments, on the purchase of MTS by BCE are due to the CRTC tomorrow. The scope of the CRTC review is limited exclusively to tv service (BDU) in the Winnipeg market. Rural tv services are exempt and other services, including landline, wireless and broadband do not require CRTC approval.


Quickly skimming comments, there is some strong support from Winnipeg business on file already and lots of comments on issues that are out of scope. You can review all of the approximately 100 submissions from the CRTC web site if you want.
