Eastlink launches wireless service in St. John's, NL

  • Award-winning, and Canada-wide coverage, at a better price
  • Worry-Free Data and easy switching through Contract Buyout

ST. JOHN'S, June 8, 2017 /CNW/ - Eastlink is bringing more choice and competition to customers in Newfoundland and Labrador with the launch of its highly-anticipated wireless service, now available in the greater St. John's area.

"We are excited to bring our award-winning wireless service to Newfoundland and Labrador," says Lee Bragg, Eastlink CEO.  "We continue to invest heavily in expanding our wireless serving area to deliver the best possible wireless experience for more customers, offering them extensive network coverage and quality, combined with lower prices and exceptional customer service."

Best of Both Worlds
Customers can expect reliable coverage from coast-to coast with access to the largest and fastest networks in the country.  Combined with savings on nationwide talk, text and data plans and innovative customer-centric offerings, customers can enjoy the same Canada-wide coverage as the Big Guys, at a better price.

Customer-focused Service

  • Eastlink's Worry-Free Data plans give customers peace of mind in not having to deal with unexpected data overages.
  • Eastlink's innovative easyTab® model features monthly prices that actually go down over time.
  • Customers stuck in a contract can make the switch right away as Eastlink will buy out their existing cellphone contract.

"We have a culture of listening to customers and responding to their needs," says Arthur Taylor, Regional Manager (NL).  "We're proud to say that our service is built by Atlantic Canadians for Atlantic Canadians. It is designed with customers in mind, who have expressed that they want better pricing along with a better customer service experience."

Starting June 8, customers can make the long-awaited switch to Eastlink in-store, through online chat at www.eastlink.ca, or by calling Eastlink Customer Care at 1-888-345-1111. 

Grand opening celebrations will take place throughout the weekend at the brand new Eastlink location in the Avalon Mall.   Customers are invited to drop by to enjoy food and special introductory offers.
