The Canadian Minister of Industry, the honourable James Moore, has made it official that Canada's 2500 Mhz auction will take place April 14 2015 and applications from interested parties must be received by November 27 2014.

The minister reiterated that he would like to see increased competition in the Canadian wireless market and as such will adopt the same auction principles as that being used for the 700Mhz bands beings auctioned this year.

The minister will implement spectrum caps to ensure at least 4 different providers win parts of the 2500 Mhz spectrum thus ensuring competition.
