Videotron has announced the official launch of its wireless network in Rimouski, Quebec, bringing mobile service along the Lower Saint Lawrence, in what it says was “after months of build-out and testing”.
Along with 12 neighbouring municipalities, wireless service in Rimouski now joins the Rivière-du-Loup and Trois-Pistoles areas, which Videotron already serves.
“As we have always said, we are constantly evaluating and growth opportunities in Québec and we’re ready to seize them,” commented Jean-François Pruneau, President and CEO of Videotron, in a statement. “Videotron’s arrival on the scene will give local residents access to the best on the market.”
The company says “the reason the vast majority of Quebecers pay lower prices for mobile plans than the rest of the country is Videotron’s presence in the market.”
“Videotron’s longstanding close relationship with Quebecers is founded on the quality of the service and the experience it offers its customers,” added Pierre Karl Péladeau, President and CEO of Quebecor.
To celebrate the launch, Videotron says it is offering an exclusive $10 per month discount to local residents on its Zen plans.
