    Shaw delays deployment again, something else up their sleeve?

    I'm guessing the slowing of the rollout even in Calgary (they already delayed Vancouver and Edmonton) means they are eying on gobbling up one of the new carriers Wnd or Mobilicity. Pure speculation but it makes sense and I'll put my money on Wnd being the target.
    Opinions, thoughts?

    Well Shaw did just lay off 550 people and are tightening up their belt. So that is my guess

    Then I see this on mobilesyrup.com

    Makes perfect sense.

    The only problem with purchasing existing AWS provider is that it's not LTE, they will have the additional headache of migrating to LTE in the coming years. That would be more costly move instead of doing LTE from the start.

    I'd suggest Shaw is taking a 'breather' to understand what direction to go (especially after AT&T / T-Mobile announcement from last month).

    Yeah, I'm working out of the Mississauga call centre. Some supervisors and a manager, and agents were laid off.

    I know we're doing some restructuring and hopefully more hiring.
