Canada's comparatively low mobile penetration suggests that there remains room for further growth in the voice market. The government has endeavoured to encourage market competition by ensuring that blocks of spectrum have been reserved for new entrants, while blocking deals which would have concentrated spectrum either regionally or nationally among the three main networks operators. Though voice services revenue growth remains stagnant, there is considerable promise in the mobile data sector. To this end operators have been upgrading their networks with HSPA+ and LTE technologies. Operators have seen a steady migration among subscribers from feature phones to smartphones. About 75% of contract subscribers have smartphones, and with higher data use this has resulted in a slower decline in ARPU. Operators have also now been able to capitalise on their recently awarded concessions in the 700MHz band, with a view to extending their LTE network footprints to about 99% of the population.
This report provides an overview and analysis of the Canadian wireless market and the major operators, together with key statistics and select forecasts. Currency cited is Canadian dollars.

Key developments:
CRTC decides against Rogers Communications' exclusive wholesale roaming agreements with new entrants; Rogers and Bell Canada blocked from concentrating too much spectrum in the 2300MHz band; Public Mobile shuts down its CDMA-based network; results of the 2014 700MHz auction; PTT developments from Telus; LTE network rollouts; Rogers launches LTE international roaming service, enters into network share deal with Mobilicity; Public Mobile bought by investment firms; spectrum licence transfer framework agreed; regulator prepares for 2.5GHz auction; Mobilicity seeks to restructure finances and raise funds for spectrum bid; regulator's market data updates; 2013 Communications Monitoring Report; telcos' operating and financial data to Q2 2014; market developments into 2014.
