New entrant Wind Mobile has been in operation since December of last year. There has been much speculation of how many subscribers have signed up and what the real impact they have had in the market. Rumours are that it’s around the 90,000 to 100,000 mark but nothing confirmed. If you really want to know then mark Thursday, August 12th down on your calendar. This is the date that Wind’s financial backer Orascom Telecom will report quarterly results and give Canadian subscriber numbers.
Anthony Lacavera, Chairman of Globalive, said in an interview that “I think everyone is going to be surprised by our subscriber numbers”.
