Videotron Announces Canada-Wide LTE Network Coverage, Starting May 13

by Istvan Fekete on April 16, 2015

Videotron has announced another major step toward improving customer experience: It is expanding its network coverage from coast to coast. Starting May 13, 2015 Videotron customers will have mobile coverage across the whole of Canada.

The announcement comes less than a year after the carrier launched its LTE network, which supports theoretical download speeds of 150 Mpbs and covers nearly 90% of Québec’s population. Now, Videotron customers will be able to travel throughout the country and keep in touch with their loved ones at no extra cost, as a result of network partnerships.

“Today’s announcement confirms our commitment to continue offering Quebec consumers and businesses the best experience, which is why Videotron has the highest customer satisfaction rate of any telecommunications provider in Quebec,” said Manon Brouillette, President and CEO of Videotron.

“Today, more than 632,000 individuals and companies use our mobile services, and that is first and foremost because of the effort we make to differentiate ourselves in the marketplace through our plans, our unique mobile content offerings and our vast selection of devices operating on a cutting-edge network. I am very pleased that in less than five years we have shaken things up in the Canadian marketplace, to the benefit of consumers across the country.”

As you may already know, one of these partners is Rogers, but Videotron may follow Wind Mobile’s example by inking a deal with all existing wireless players, benefitting from the wholesale roaming charges cap imposed by the CRTC.

Alongside expansion of its LTE coverage, Videotron has also reminded customers that they need to buy a latest-generation device such as the Samsung Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 Edge to take advantage of the higher data speeds.
