Another national cellular carrier for Canada?

The Globe and Mail reports that:

The market is abuzz with speculation the federal government may recommend creating a fourth national wireless carrier. It’s seen as a way for Ottawa to stimulate competition — the percentage of Canadians with cellphone service lags the United States and other countries.

Canada currently has three national carriers – Rogers Wireless, Bell Mobility and Telus – there are also resellers such as Virgin Mobile Canada that use other carriers’ networks (Bell’s network in the case of Virgin).
