Videotron has been on a mission to disrupt the wireless market in Quebec since they launched their 3G, now 4G, network last September. They’ve slowly been making ground and in some cases were the first to offer handsets (Nexus S, LG Optimus 2X) and also various promotions (unlimited/infinite calling and 6GB data which the Big 3 soon followed). Today, parent-company Quebecor announced their Q2 2011 results and declared that Videotron increased their subscriber base by 45,900, thus bringing the total subscriber numbers to 203,800 (133,200 on the 4G network and 70,600 on the old MVNO network). According to the report these numbers are “exceeding targets”.

    Wow that’s huge these guys are killing it. Go videotron!

    Shaw hows that wireless coming? You could be killing it like these guys too.

    I wish my Desire Z would work on their network, that’s the only thing preventing me from switching. Their current phones line-up doesn’t appeal to me at all.(I’m a “must-have keyboard on the phone” kind of person 😛 )

      Have you looked at the T-Mobile G2? It’s essentially the AWS Desire Z.

    They are killing it but their service sucks. Had a $4 discount because I had 2 services and now they cut it to $1.50 and they lowered the mobile rate too. So basically it isn’t worth to bundle anymore. Even Bell doesn’t do that.

    Also alot of areas where I don’t get reception. Areas where I would get reception with Telus on CDMA. I called them amd the tech said they would call me back to rectify it and they never called back. I then called them up and they told me that outdoor signal was good and had no intention of improving building penetration in my area!!!

    I got my phone by mail and they charhed me for 5 days before I activated the phone because it had been ordered 5 days before.

    NOT VERY HAPPY WITH THEM AT ALL. Hope Mobi or Wind gets spectrum in Quebec in 2012.

    Error in what Ian wrote: “133,200 new connections and 70,600 migrations from the mobile virtual network operator (“MVNO”) service”. Essentially means they now have 203,800 4G customers, unknown number of MVNO customers.
