It’s been a long road for Videotron when it comes to launching their new 3G+ network. They were supposed to officially go live back in May, then decided to delay the launch until the end of the year (or at the very earliest this Fall). Quebecor President & CEO Pierre Karl Péladeau said “Launching a network is not a piece of cake…We want to keep offering our clients quality products and, in telecommunications, this means service without interruption and offering quality content. We are quite satisfied with the deployment but it isn’t finished yet”.
Good news for those located in Quebec who are looking to give this new network a go as we’ve been tipped that Videotron will launch the new 3G+ network “early September”. We already know that they will offer various BlackBerry devices but were told that we can expect “several other smartphones” in their lineup.
