Less Than a Year After LTE Network Launch : Videotron Mobile Announces Expanded Cross-Canada Coverage, Starting May 13

MONTRÉAL, QUÉBEC--(Marketwired - April 14, 2015) - Less than a year after launching its LTE mobile network, Videotron is taking another giant step forward by introducing expanded coast-to-coast coverage. As of May 13, Videotron Mobile will give its customers still wider coverage across the country1, from Gaspé to Vancouver, from Prairie roads to Laurentian lakeshores. With Videotron's All Inclusive Canada plans2, Québec consumers and business people will be able to travel the country with peace of mind, knowing that they will be able to text their loved ones and pick up their emails at no extra charge across the land on Videotron's partner networks.

Videotron's LTE mobile network, which covers nearly 90% of Québec's population and supports speeds of up to 150 Mbps, lets customers use their devices to their full potential. Videotron Mobile provides access to the most advanced technology, the fastest data transfer speeds, the best value for the money, and now expanded coverage. Whether they live in Québec City, Montréal, Sherbrooke or Saguenay, whether they spend the summer at the beach or on the highway, Videotron customers will enjoy a superior experience, with the latest devices and generous data plans.

The mobile adventure continues

"Today's announcement confirms our commitment to continue offering Québec consumers and businesses the best experience, which is why Videotron has the highest customer satisfaction rate of any telecommunications provider in Québec," 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."

State-of-the-art devices on a powerful network

In addition to expanded LTE coverage, Videotron offers customers a line of best-in-class LTE devices for every need, including since April 10 the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge.
