TORONTO – An Ontario court has given its OK to a deal that will see Rogers Communications purchase Mobilicity.

Rogers (TSX:RCI.B) will also sell some spectrum to Wind Mobile, which has emerged as one of the leading challengers to Canada’s three biggest wireless companies – Rogers, Telus (TSX:T) and BCE’s Bell (TSX:BCE).

Rogers said Industry Canada has approved its takeover offer for Mobilicity.

More coming.
