Analyst opines T-Mobile might want in on Canadian spectrum sale

Chris Ziegler

So Canada's about to swing open the doors to a new wireless competitor thanks to a massive spectrum auction being held this spring, and at least one analyst type of character -- this one with Canada's CIBC -- thinks T-Mobile might be game. Having just spread into North America relatively recently on thing wings of its Voicestream and Powertel purchases in 2001, it would be a considerably easier hop to spread north into Canada, and the analyst speculates that Deutsche Telekom could get around the country's pesky domestic ownership rules by partnering (at least initially, anyway) with a homegrown carrier. Canadians, we turn the question over to you: how would you feel about T-Mobile heading up your way?
