Today, Wind Mobile announced that it has completed major network improvements in the Edmonton area. The news comes following expanded coverage and network improvements launched in both Vancouver and Calgary.
With those upgrades, the company claims speeds and coverage have been drastically improved, along with perhaps the most important metric: latency. The carrier originally announced the drastic overhaul to its equipment last year, with work beginning in December in partnership with Nokia Networks.
In a statement, Wind Mobile President and CEO Alek Krstajic said:
“We are really pleased to have now completed the Western market in our continuing network upgrade journey. It is exciting to hear customers tell us that they are experiencing a noticeable improvement in their service.”
Now the company, which is owned by Shaw Communications, moves onto its biggest and most expansive market, Southern Ontario, which includes the Greater Toronto Area, Hamilton, Barrie, Windsor, London, Niagara Region, and Peterborough. However, it is still unclear how long the company will take to complete the upgrades in its largest region.
