Transfer of Spectrum Licences Held by Corridor Communications Inc. to Kian Telecom Inc.

Transfer decision

Application

1.  On May 8, 2017, Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada (ISED) received an application for the transfer of ten spectrum licences in the broadband radio service (BRS) band throughout Eastern and Southern Ontario from Corridor Communications Inc. (CCI) to Kian Telecom Inc. (Kian Telecom). The licences are described in annex A.

2.  The application was reviewed under the relevant provisions of Client Procedures Circular CPC-2-1-23, Licensing Procedure for Spectrum Licences for Terrestrial Services.

3.  Terms not defined in this decision have the meaning set out in CPC-2-1-23.

Decision

4.  The transfer of the licences from CCI to Kian Telecom is approved.

Rationale

5.  The application was assessed against the policy objectives and criteria set out in section 5.6 of CPC-2-1-23.

6.  ISED notes that the licence transfer will not result in a significant change in spectrum concentration in the licence areas.

7.  ISED has determined that the requested licence transfer will not impact the ability of existing or future competitors to provide services given that the transfer will not significantly change the post-transfer concentration of commercial mobile spectrum in the affected licence areas.
