Canadian Telecom Gets More Complicated

As if it was possible to have the Canadian telecommunications landscape get more complicated, Angus TeleManagement Group is reporting that Manitoba Telecom Services (MTS) is acquiring Allstream (which used to be AT&T Canada). MTS is 21.7% owned by BCE, which also owns 53.5% of Aliant.

On some level, this is like Eatons buying Simpsons, but through a third party.
