FREDERICTON - Regional telecom operator Bell Aliant (TSX:BA.UN) says it is asking a New Brunswick court to stop Rogers Communications Inc. (TSX:RCI.B) from proclaiming it has the fastest Internet services in the country.
The telecom company, based in Halifax, says Rogers advertises that it offers the "fastest and most reliable" high speed Internet product, even though Bell Aliant says its speeds are even faster.
Bell Aliant says it is asking the court for an immediate injunction against Rogers from making the claims.
It says it tried to work out changes with Rogers before taking legal action, but was unsuccessful.
Late last year, Rogers duked it out in court with Bell Mobility (TSX:BCE) in a separate dispute over whom had the most reliable wireless network in the country.
The court ruled that both companies were to omit the claims in their future advertisements.
