Wind Mobile Plays Kingmaker in Rogers-Mobilicity Acquisition

Wind Mobile played the kingmaker in Rogers Communications Inc.’s C$440 million ($355 million) takeover of bankrupt carrier Mobilicity and won itself a swath of new wireless spectrum in the process, according to its chief executive officer.

Alek Krstajic, a telecommunications industry veteran who took over the top job at Wind in March, said he partnered with Rogers instead of Telus Corp. because Rogers was able to hand over more spectrum to Wind than Telus as part of the deal.
