Growing carrier to extend its unlimited coverage zones into Hamilton, Ajax and more cities across Canada
TORONTO, June 21, 2012 /CNW/ - Mobilicity today announced future plans to widen its unlimited network west of Toronto into Milton, Oakville, Burlington and Hamilton to answer the growing demand for its affordable, unlimited talk, text and data service. East of Toronto, Mobilicity will launch in Pickering, Ajax, Whitby and Oshawa. In Ottawa, the carrier will focus on building out the network in Barrhaven, Orléans and Cumberland.
"We've spent the last year on network densification to provide a great network experience amidst tremendous growth in our existing service area," said Mobilicity President and Chief Operating Officer Stewart Lyons. "Now it's time to expand outward and bring Mobilicity's smart, affordable wireless service to more Canadians than ever."
Mobilicity also confirmed it is in the process of extending its unlimited network within the Greater Vancouver Area to include White Rock, Pitt Meadows and the Richmond-Surrey commuter corridors. In Edmonton, Mobilicity is expanding around St. Albert to the north and southward to the airport. The network updates will soon be reflected on the carrier's coverage map.
In recent news, the company yesterday announced it applied for Official Holiday Status of National Break Your Wireless Contract Day to enable Canadians to get out of their wireless contracts without incurring unfair, punitive early contract termination fees.
Last week, Mobilicity confirmed it will upgrade its HSPA+-enabled network to 4G later this year. The move will result in download speeds of up to 21Mbps, and will enable customers to leverage the full performance of cutting-edge 4G smartphones and browse the web, run apps and watch video clips on their smartphones with enhanced quality and speed.
