Quebec-based wireless provider Videotron has hit a milestone of 1 million business and residential wireless customers, after launching their mobile network back in September 2010.
Videotron says when it launched, it was able to differentiate itself from incumbents “with original campaigns and a series of firsts,” such as their expanded LTE network and recent launch of Voice over LTE (VoLTE).
Manon Brouillette, President and CEO of Videotron, said in a press release, “A million thanks to our clients. They are the ones who push us to do better every day. This is an important milestone for Videotron and for each of its 6,500 employees, without whom this ambitious project would not have been possible.”
Videotron says their network has seen over $2 billion invested since 2008 and has created over 1,000 jobs. Its coverage blankets 898 municipalities in Quebec and 20 in Ontario (the network is a joint venture with Rogers).
“As the world becomes ever more connected and mobile, the telecommunications industry is entering a decisive phase. We are determined to be on the front lines and to continue innovating to meet the many challenges that lie ahead,” added Manon Brouillette.
