Today we are one step closer to launching affordable and awesome wireless service,” says Algis Akstinas, CEO of dotmobile™.

On January 13, 2020, the CRTC will hold a public hearing to review the state of the wireless telecommunications industry in Canada. Previously, Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada, department of the Government of Canada (ISED) issued a new directive, with the goal of improving affordability, differentiation. The directive encourages all forms of competition and investment, it was signed into law on June 17th of this year. 

Data On Tap Inc. intends to participate in the hearing and invites Canadians to support the cause by becoming a free member on the dotmobile™ website.

“Our plan is clear - we can deliver significant value to Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) and improve wireless service for people with moderate, changing or temporary needs. We’ve presented major Canadian MNOs with our vision and are in the process of building it. Now the clock is ticking for the MNOs to respond to the needs of the underserved,” says Algis Akstinas, CEO of dotmobile™.
