Tower tempest dominates debate
By Linda Stuart
Cell towersharing remains a whitehot topic or wireless com-petitors and the issue raised itshead Tuesday morning duringthe Canadian Telecom Summit’sannual regulatory blockbusterpanel, moderated again this yearby Cartt.ca editor and publisherGreg O’Brien.
Although mandated towersharing was included in the 2008AWS spectrum auction rules – asit will be or next year’s 700MHzspectrum auction – the problemsor new wireless entrants are thegrowing costs to share tower spaceand that access rules are not ad-new entrant and subjects the new entrant to an incredible amount o abuse,” Antecol said. “I think we’rea ar cry rom a level competitiveplaying feld.” Since most munici-palities reuse to be dotted withmultiple towers rom multiple car-riers, sharing is the only option.Ted Woodhead, senior vice-president or ederal governmentregulatory aairs at Telus, shotback saying he remembers Antecolhered to by the three incumbents,said Ed Antecol, vice-president o regulatory aairs and carrier ser-vices or Globalive/Wind Mobile.Antecol said new entrants pay “atrocious rent” to put its trans-mitters on an incumbent’s celltower, which sometimes is the new entrant’s only option. “We pay asmuch sometimes to put an anten-na on an undesirable portion o atower than it costs to build a wholenew tower,” he said. “In some cases,we’re paying charges to repair atower to not only include our ownantennas but uture-use antennaso the incumbents as well.“That just sucks capital rom a“pulled the fre alarm over sometower access request with Telus”during last year’s regulatory panelbattle. Ater Woodhead asked hisTelus sta to look into the requestand to prepare all o the necessary inormation or Antecol’s com-pany, Wind Mobile withdrew itsrequest at the last minute anyway,he added.“So that fre alarm got pulled,
