Halifax-based Eastlink has announced the launch of wireless service in Grande Prairie, Alberta, part of $1 million investment in the city, part of over $4 million invested in the past year for its mobile expansion plans across Canada.
“We are pleased to confirm the further expansion of our mobile service into more and more Canadian communities,” says Deborah Shaffner, CEO, in a statement. “Our goal continues to be to deliver the best possible experience for our customers by investing in the latest network technology, providing great value for money, and delivering customer service that exceeds our customers’ expectations.”
Eastlink says their “customer-first” approach is what separates them from incumbents and other wireless competitors. So far, Eastlink’s mobile service has reached six provinces in the span of six years.
“Customers tell us what they want and we work really hard to listen and deliver more of what is important to them; that includes simple plans, better value, fast network speed, extensive and reliable coverage, and a better overall customer service,” added Shaffner.
Example wireless offerings include a $50/6GB plan with unlimited nationwide talk and text as part of a bundle with internet, while additional lines and shared data are $30 per month, per family members.
Eastlink offers all of their smartphones for $0 down with their easyTab and says they will buy out your existing contract (up to $200 per phone), which makes “switching easier than ever.”
The company has wireless service available in cities such as New Waterford, Baddeck, Tatamagouche in Nova Scotia, Goulds, Torbay, and Bell Island in Newfoundland/Labrador, Saint John, Fredericton, Shediac and Sussex in New Brunswick, and Chelmsford, Val Therese and Kirkland Lake in Ontario.
