Quebec's Videotron has become a very fierce competitor in the Quebec wireless services market. The end of September ended another great quarter with more subscribers and higher ARPU (Average Revenue per subscriber),
38000 new subscribers call Videotron wireless home (bringing the annual total to more than 111000). ARPU increased 6.5% year over year.
Videotron's newly deployed LTE network (touches 90% of Quebecers) has been a huge success and is delivering speeds of up to 150Mbps. The analyst call also referred to discussions with Wind Mobile. I think a purchase of Wind by Videotron would be a fantastic move for the company and for consumers.
Videotron won spectrum in the 700Mhz auction in Quebec, Ontario, Alberta and BC. Let's see if growth ambitions push Videotron to compete ocean to ocean.
