WIND Mobile Continues to Strengthen Coverage from Coast to Coast

Increasing service areas across Canada by 14 per cent

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Dec. 2, 2014) - Today, WIND Mobile announced that all new and existing customers will have access to even better service than ever before while travelling outside of the WIND Unlimited zone within Canada. By adding an additional domestic partner network, WIND Mobile has taken another leap in advancing and improving its service throughout Canada - growing its coverage area by 14 per cent nationwide, 40 per cent in British Columbia and 16 per cent in Alberta, adding 177,000 square kilometers of coverage within Canada. WIND Mobile now covers 1.2 million square kilometers across Canada and reaches 97 per cent of the population.

"Our data shows that Canadians living in our Unlimited coverage areas do tend to travel outside of their home zone for work or pleasure," said Mirko Rugarli, Chief Marketing Officer, WIND Mobile. "That's why at WIND, we are dedicated to improving our customers' experience across Canada and the U.S. - providing them with the freedom to use their phone when they travel. We've also been listening to customer feedback and have continued to extend our Unlimited footprint, most recently adding Brantford, with even more aggressive plans for expansion planned for the coming year."

WIND Mobile has continued to strive to bring its customers true mobile freedom in North America at a fair and competitive price point. These improvements are part of a plan to improve WIND Mobile's customer experience, allowing users to stay connected to friends and family at any time and to feel comfortable using their phone while travelling.

To bring customers this freedom to stay connected, this year alone WIND Mobile has introduced the following offerings:

  • Unlimited U.S. Roaming - giving customers unlimited talk, text and data while travelling in the U.S. for only $15 a month
  • Improved roaming service in Canada - launching 4G (HSPA+) data speeds and a reduced pay-per-use rate; lowering roaming costs by up to 95 per cent
  • The Cross-Canada plan for only $44/month - offers users unlimited talk, text and data with an additional $10 service credit that can be used towards monthly add-ons or roaming fees

WIND Mobile customers are easily able to track their usage in real time using the WIND 'My Account' mobile app or by logging into 'My Account' at WINDmobile.ca.
