Rogers Defending Chatr in Court


by Irma Arkus

uh oh. Rogers is on stand this week, after complaints from competition that its marketing for Chatr, a new mobile service apparently touting itself as superior for not dropping as many calls as its competitors, is nothing but…marketing.

The competition says that there are no technological reasons for such claims, nor is there any proof that Chatr is superior in any form from already existing mobile services. After all, Rogers uses the very same network for Chatr, as it does for the rest of their services.

The competition bureau is demanding Rogers halt the advertising campaign and deliver $10m in damages as a penalty.
