Dec 14, 2009 Update: You can read and listen to my latest interview with Tony Lacavera, “Globalive Chairman Tony Lacavera interview (after government overturned CRTC decision)”
I was impressed with Globalive‘s PR team in getting in touch with me very promptly after I posted a request yesterday to express my wishes to interview Tony Lacavera, CEO of Globalive (on Twitter, Facebook, and the blog entry “Searching for Tony Lacavera“). As a result of their prompt response, I was able to chat, late this afternoon, with Tony to ask him a few questions about,
- WirelessSoapbox.com (I blogged about the top 6 recurring themes here),
- the wireless auction,
- the Telus/Shaw/Rogers’s challenge with respect to Globalive’s foreign ownership level, and
- the 2009 second quarter beta testing/testers.
Because of time limitation, I held back a few follow up questions and didn’t follow up on a few questions (e.g. if Tony knew the undesirableness of some of the top 6 recurring themes, and had planned to do away with them already, like the hated System Access/Hidden Fees).
I look forward to chatting some more with Tony in the future. And I would love to be a beta tester of Globalive’s services when it become ready in second quarter of 2009.
