Videotron moving further from MVNO to MNO – Canada

Quebec based Cable operator, Videotron, has come out fighting in the marketing battle for who has the biggest and best network. The operator is currently building a 3G network of their own to launch wireless services over in the Quebec region. The operator claims that subscribers will have a superior experience using their network compared to the existing networks. The rational behind this is that they will have fewer users and therefore greater capacity to manage the traffic, therefore the service will not be hindered by bottle necks from too many subscribers.

Users of the service will roam onto Rogers network within Canada when outside of Videotron’s network and onto T-Mobile when in the USA.
