Rogers Communication Inc.’s proposal for providing wireless service on Toronto’s subway indicates the company’s competitors will be consulted in the design and planning of upgrades, but includes no specifics about the terms required for Bell and Telus to access the network.
Rogers announced in April that it was buying the Canadian operations of BAI Communications, which owns the wireless network in Toronto’s subway, and planned to bring 911 coverage and 5G connectivity to the entire system.
On Monday, the company said it had sent federal Industry Minister Francois-Philippe Champagne a proposal in May, outlining a plan to negotiate agreements with all carriers to join the network.
The proposed framework comes after the minister penned a letter to the executives of Rogers, Bell Canada, Telus Communications Inc. and Quebecor Inc., calling on them to reach a deal that would allow any company to access the TTC’s wireless system after Rogers’ purchase of the existing operations.
