Rob Bruce, president/Communications for Rogers Communications, speaking at the 2011 Canadian Telecom Summit in Toronto, pressed for a fair and open auction of 700 MHz band spectrum in Canada.

Bruce said that an equal and fair auction – that includes established players and newcomers under the same rules – is critical to Rogers’ deployment of its next generation Long Term Evolution (LTE) network. 700 MHz spectrum delivers better in-building penetration and, importantly for Canadians who live in a country with low population density, better coverage in rural and remote areas.

Bruce called on the new Conservative Government and new Minister of Industry, Christian Paradis, to adopt a digital strategy that doesn’t penalize established players such as Rogers.
