Videotron Expands High-Speed Internet to 30,000 Homes, Businesses in Small Town Québec
Videotron has today announced the completion of a series of mainstream investments that have brought its high-speed internet to more than 30,000 households and small- and medium-sized businesses in small-town Québec.
Totaling over $25 million, these investments began back in 2017 and have connected thousands of families and businesses to Videotron’s network. With its network now reaching more than 90% of Quebecers, the company plans to continue making substantial investments.
Majority of Videotron’s new infrastructure investments are outside the major urban centres and include the Lanaudière, Lower Laurentians, Outaouais, Eastern Townships, Montérégie and Charlevoix regions.
“Videotron wants to support local communities by becoming a partner in the connected lives of all Quebecers,” says Jean-François Pruneau, President, and CEO of Videotron. “As we have seen in the last few months, access to a fast and reliable Internet network is a necessity. We need it to stay connected with our loved ones and to support economic development in our regions.”
Videotron says it is determined to connect as many Québec households and businesses as possible to its high-speed network.
