WIND Mobile Launches Nationwide Network Upgrade in Vancouver

WIND Mobile announced Tuesday morning it plans to boost its network performance across Canada, starting with the Greater Vancouver area.

Dean Price, Vice President and General Manager of WIND Mobile’s Western Region, said in an emailed statement to iPhone in Canada “WIND customers in the Greater Vancouver area are already noticing better performance as we upgrade every aspect of our network components.”

Completion of the Greater Vancouver upgrade is expected to be completed by January 2016.

Price went on to explain “We’re dedicated to doing what is necessary to improve our network in the West to handle the surge of new customers who have joined WIND Mobile,” citing new equipment and additional spectrum will result in “more capacity, faster data speed and improved call quality.”

WIND Mobile says as it continues to expand its capacity, it “further solidifies its position as Canada’s true alternative wireless provider.”

Last week, the carrier announced it had partnered with Nokia to implement its highly anticipated LTE network, part of a five-year agreement between both companies.
