Videotron (A subsidiary of the media conglomerate Quebecor)

Videotron has already launch a mobile service. This company has recently establish a roaming agreement with Rogers wireless service provider, under which Videotron will roam exclusively on the Rogers network across Canada to guarantee a nationwide service. In july 2008, Videotron officially acquired spectrum licenses for advanced wireless services from Industry Canada auction. The licenses cover Quebec, Toronto and south-east Ontario. The network is expected to be fully operational in fall 2010 in the province of Quebec.

The advantage of Videotron will be "all-in-one" packages. If you're planing to add the Videotron's mobile service to your Television, Telephony and Cable package, it's strongly suggested to wait until they launch their new 3G+ mobile service, probably in fall 2010.
