Wind Mobile has filed a complaint with the federal Competition Bureau over claims made by rival Rogers that its discount brand Chatr has fewer dropped calls and a better network than its new competitors.

Wind chief executive Anthony Lacavera said Thursday in a speech that Rogers’ claims are anti-competitive and have no technical basis.

“It’s a classic case of the incumbents playing games here domestically,” Lacavera said before a speech to the Toronto Board of Trade.

“Instead of really focusing on growth opportunities -— genuine growth opportunities — they’d rather spend their energies trying to kill nascent competition,” he said in an interview.

Lacavera said Wind is one of those carriers still in its early development stages, which means it’s still working out some of the technical kinks.
