FREDERICTON - Bell Aliant (TSX:BA.UN) said Tuesday it has won an injunction to stop Rogers Communications Inc. (TSX:RCI.B) from claiming to have the "fastest and most reliable" high-speed Internet service.
Bell Aliant said that a New Brunswick court ordered Rogers to stop claiming to have the "fastest speed," "most reliable speed," or "fastest and most reliable speed."
Bell Aliant voice, data, Internet, video and other services in six provinces.
Rogers was forced last year to pull ads saying it had Canada's most reliable wireless network after it was sued by Telus Corp. (TSX:T), the country's second-largest phone company
Telus argued successfully in a B.C. court that the claims to superiority couldn't be supported after a new advanced wireless network was launched last November by Telus and Montreal-based BCE Inc. (TSX:BCE), which is a major shareholder in Bell Aliant.
